Interests: obstetrics; high risk pregnancy; nutrition; prevention; maternal and fetal medicine
In the last half of the 20th century, advances in feto-maternal medicine made birth safer for high-risk women and for those with pre-existing medical conditions. Current efforts for creating woman-centered care by engaging all health professionals represent an innovative approach in modern maternity care units.
In this Special Issue, our interest is focused on the contribution of nurses working with childbearing families. To date, they are involved in a significant variety of new challenges for obstetrics, including maternal well-being and satisfaction, shortened lengths of hospital stay, a greater use of community-based and home care, and downsizing and mergers of health-care systems.
Both original research works and reviews with the aim of emphasizing the central role played by maternity nurses working with today’s childbearing families are welcome. Investigations exploring the global perspective of labor and delivery nurses in handling a delicate new life, new family member, and entirely new experience, and prioritizing the health and safety of the mother–child dyad are welcome.
