In all social groups, there are practices, values, and institutions that integrate the health system of a community, establishing the form in which health and disease are conceived. In consequence, health care of a pregnant woman as a cultural phenomenon is born and structured trough cultural knowledge, social institutions, and persons. The success of nurse intervention is given by the congruence and competence of them with the particular cosmovision of health-disease, therefore, it is crucial that the nursing professionals understand the particularities of the subjects being care, according to Dr. Leininger's theory on the diversity and universality of cultural care in order to take into account the values, believes, cultural care and the ways of life of the people with similar and diverse cultures to obtain benefitial and satisfactory results as regards the global health care quality perceived by the patient-client.
