When pregnancy and cancer intertwine, nurses play a big role in supporting the mother and baby during treatment. Maximize your care for pregnant women before, during, and after treatment by considering the diverse factors: the gestation of the fetus, drugs to use or avoid, the mother’s survival, and the impact on fertility. Through case presentations and audience discussion, you’ll also take in the social and religious standpoints on the protection of the baby and mother. 

1. Identify three fertility issues facing the female patient with cancer.  
2. Identify the most prevalent issues facing the pregnant patient with cancer.
