Dr. Julie Marfell is a family nurse practitioner and Dean of Nursing at Frontier Nursing University. Several former FNU faculty members serve as authors including Robin Jordan, certified nurse-midwife; Janet Engstrom, certified nurse-midwife and women’s health care nurse practitioner; and Cindy Farley, certified nurse-midwife.
The authors were presented with the Book of the Year Award at the American College of Nurse-Midwives Annual Meeting Awards Banquet.
Dr. Julie Marfell shares, "This book is unique as it was written for clinicians, especially nurse practitioners and nurse-midwives to answer questions about the assessment and management of common conditions seen in women during pregnancy and after birth. The book is authored by nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners who are both clinicians and educators and can be used in practice as a reference as well as a textbook for students.”
Prenatal and Postnatal Care: A Woman-Centered Approach is a comprehensive resource for the care of the pregnant woman before and after birth and is ideal as a graduate text for newly-qualified adult nurses, family and women’s health practitioners, and midwives. Beginning by outlining the physiological foundations of prenatal and postnatal care, and then presenting these at an advanced practice level, the book moves on to discuss preconception and prenatal care, the management of common health problems during pregnancy, and postnatal care. This textbook combines the physiological foundation of prenatal and postnatal care with practical application for a comprehensive, holistic approach applicable to a variety of clinical settings.
