Evidence-based Obstetric Nursing views pregnancy and birth as a normal life event that includes family members as a part of the health care team. It supports students to discover and apply new knowledge through the use of current evidence-based research. This text also provides a historical framework that illuminates the many opportunities for bedside nurses to positively impact patient outcomes in a changing healthcare environment.

Evidence-based Obstetric Nursing is designed to promote critical thinking in nursing care for pregnant, laboring and postpartum women and adolescents. Nursing interventions are presented for normal pregnancy, birth, and postpartum periods, and then, complications and evidence-based treatment are presented for each phase.

This text uses the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the American College of Nurse-Midwives, the World Health Organization, and Healthy People 2020 recommendations to guide nursing interventions. In addition, the Institute of Medicine and Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies give context to the evidence-based interventions.

The text also comes with a code in the front of each new book that unlocks instructor and student resources. There are 300 questions to test student learning and further experience with NCLEX-style questions.

Sondae Stevens

Sondae Stevens graduated from the University of California at Berkeley as an Integrative Biology major and Conservation Resource Studies minor. She enhanced her understanding of the relationship between the human body and the physical environment as a labor support doula, a postpartum doula, and a midwife assistant. She continued her education, went to DePaul University, and obtained her MS in Nursing. Nursing school afforded her the perfect environment to link her clinical experiences, the mother-baby continuum, and evidence-based practice research.

As a nurse, she worked in an Adult Surgical Intensive Care Unit, General Pediatrics, Pediatric Hematology-Oncology, and in Critical Care Home Health nursing. It was the experience of being a home health nurse that made her realize the importance of health promotion. Health promotion is the most effective tool to promote the growth of the developing baby as well as promoting health habits that can become lifestyles.

Her passion for the mother-baby dyad led her to teach Pediatric and Obstetric clinical rotations as an adjunct professor at City Colleges of Chicago, and later led her to become a tenured Assistant Professor and Certified Nurse Educator (CNE).

Evidence-based Pediatric Nursing and  Evidence-based Obstetric Nursing came from a need to teach basic nursing care while incorporating research from an ever-changing health care system. These textbooks attempt to bridge the gap between clinical practice and evidence-based bedside nursing interventions for all nursing students and nurses. There is a strong focus on a preventative lifestyle for mothers and babies as nurses can be instrumental in the promotion of wellness. When she isn’t writing textbooks or teaching in the classroom, she is working on a fiction series she hopes to publish.
