This paper discusses various psychosocial/cultural aspects of pregnancy that may alter the behaviour of the expectant couple. Holistic care plans are more likely to be effective if nurses are cognizant of these influences on the health of the child bearing couple. The quality of life from the moment of conception depends on a vast number of factors not the least being the physical and mental health of the expectant parents. Australian midwives contribute to the quality of maternal and fetal life by providing care throughout the pregnancy. In holistic care the health of the father is also considered therefore the quality of care provided to the growing family in the 1980's is a product of the nurses' knowledge.
