Olds' Maternal-Newborn Nursing & Women's Health Across the Lifespan takes a humanistic approach to maternal-newborn care and women's health. Relatable and engaging, it acknowledges the central role of nurses in all aspects of childbearing. The authors promote holistic, evidence-based care grounded in patient-family partnerships. They'll help you build the clinical reasoning skills you need to effectively work with patients and their families and to care for patients in an ever-changing health care system.

The 11th Edition has a new Reproductive Genetics chapter and a new Case Study feature. It includes access to Pearson's MAP app, which offers nursing strategies for educating patients and families in various situations and settings.
