The second article, Complete Maternity Care [AJPH, Dec. 1956], discusses the ongoing work of the Family Health Clinic, a five year demonstration project conducted by a team consisting of an obstetrician, a nurse, a social worker, a nutritionist, and a psychologist that was formed to implement and evaluate a holistic approach to maternity care.
