This course provides a philosophical and theoretical foundation for understanding individual, newborn and family health issues throughout the childbearing continuum from preconception, pregnancy, labor, birth, neonatal transition to six weeks postpartum and for developing nursing interventions to promote perinatal and newborn health.
