Foundations of Maternal-Newborn & Women’s Health Nursing, 7th Edition

1. A nurse educator is teaching a group of nursing students about the history of family-centered
maternity care. Which statement should the nurse include in the teaching session?
a. The Sheppard-Towner Act of 1921 promoted family-centered care.
b. Changes in the pharmacologic management of labor prompted family-centered care.
c. Demands by physicians for family involvement in childbirth increased the practice
of family-centered care.
d. Parental requests that infants be allowed to remain with them rather than in a
nursery initiated the practice of family-centered care.
As research began to identify the benefits of early, extended parent-infant contact, parents began to insist that the infant remain with them. This gradually developed into the practice of
rooming-in and finally to family-centered maternity care. The Sheppard-Towner Act provided
funds for state-managed programs for mothers and children but did not promote
family-centered care. The changes in pharmacologic management of labor were not a factor in
family-centered maternity care. Family-centered care was a request by parents, not physicians.
