Good OB books to read.....

  1. I just got a Job in L&D...doesnt start until next year...But i would like about 2 good books to read to help me understand OB better. As a new grad I only had 1 semster in OB so its only so much i know about the area so what are some books that have helped some of you throughout your careers in OB??

    MIchelle L. Murray's " Labor and Delivery Nursing A guide to Evidence- Based Practice" is a very good book for new grad. It is my third year in L&D, I still look it up frequently when I have questions . It is very helpful.

    Guidelines to Perinatal Care and anything on the AWHONN website

    all of the above, especially if you need to learn more about physiology. For practical day to day inormation, I love the labor progress handbook for positioning, etc. we keep a copy on the unit now especially when we're just running out of ideas.
