This class was tough.
Going into maternity requires learning vitals signs all over again. It is a very different field than what you've been exposed to. You have to know everything about pregnant woman and everything about the child that she is going to have. It is a very challenging class, but it also a very interesting class.
I learned everything there is to know about a pregnant woman, and a mother who has just delivered. I learned everything there is to know about a new born and the possible complications they may experience. When in clinical or this class, putting all the information together is stressful but you get the hang of it.

Advice for students:
Keep up with the course readings. If you get off track with your course readings, make sure you pay attention in class, because the professor does not give you a study guide for tests.
