Book suggestions? OB nursing made incredibly easy?

  1. Since it's been a couple of years since I did OB clinicals, I'd like to brush up on my OB material. Anyone have suggestions of a book (Is there an OB nursing made incredibly easy book?) besides my OB Nursing textbook that might help me? TIA!

    the NRP book

    a Fetal Heart Rate monitoring book - I'm not sure which one is "it" - I'm sure someone here can say. I have my class in a few weeks.

    a good breastfeeding book (BF Answer Book or look around www.kellymom.com or I could recommend more, there are a lot both good and bad)

    I have heard the "L&D in my Pocket" book is good (I think that's the right link for it)

    I have also heard Core Curriculum for Maternal-Newborn Nursing is good & I want to get it

    to me personally, my textbook is better than the "incredibly easy" types of review books (even though I liked them during school) because we usually need more detail than what is in the (review)ones designed for nursing students... but if you are just wanting to brush up on the very basics (stages of labor, etc.) then I'm sure the incredibly easy one would be great

    Oh yeah, I have the Maternal-Neonatal Facts Made Incredibly Quick! little spiral to take to work, again it ended up being too general but it would have been good earlier on for review & there are a few things here and there in it that I can still use.

    Thanks so much! I'll check them out! I'm also going to the book store today and hopefully I'll find something good there too! Thanks for the links too!
