As the US population becomes more diverse, medical professionals are increasingly faced with cultural challenges as they seek to provide consistent, quality care to all patients. Focusing on perinatal care, this new volume raises awareness of cultural, ethnic, and religious issues and helps physicians become "culturally competent," incorporating awareness and knowledge of cultural values and beliefs in their practice. Chapters cover health and illness, pregnancy and prenatal care, labor and delivery, postpartum and newborn care, and much more.
