Updated in April of 2020, The Compendium of Postpartum Care is a revised reference book that provides comprehensive, evidence-based information and guidelines for postpartum care and mother-baby nurses. The compendium addresses the physical, developmental, emotional, and psychosocial needs of mothers, newborns, and families from birth through the first postpartum visit. The compendium is the perfect study guide for the Maternal Newborn Nursing RNC-MNN certification exam. There are other maternal nursing books out there, but the compendium’s focus is on mother-baby care nurses, postpartum nurses, and nurses providing care to mothers and newborns primarily in a hospital setting.
