About This Course

Obstetrics is the branch of medicine concerned with the management of childbirth. The ultimate goal of all workers in the field of obstetrics is to assist a mother to produce a healthy baby, with a minimum of danger and discomfort to both. Pregnancy is defined as the condition of being "with child." To understand pregnancy, we must know how it begins, how the fetus grows in the uterus, and how it affects the mother.

Today, more than ever before nurses play a central role in the planning for and the experience of birth, and in how families feel about the experience afterwards. You, as a practical nurse, should be knowledgeable of all aspects of maternal nursing. And, by applying this knowledge you will develop skills and experience in providing quality nursing care.
