Women are inundated with advertisements for products promising younger-looking, healthier skin. The truth is that many of these products can be expensive and produce results that do not live up to the claims. Health care providers can educate women about proven best practices and how to evaluate products' claims of benefits. The best advice is that a well-balanced diet, adequate hydration, use of a topical moisturizer, protection from the sun, and avoiding smoking and tobacco are the most effective measures to not only healthy skin but a healthful life...

Depression is a significant health issue for women of reproductive age. A number of professional organizations have issued guidance regarding perinatal depression screening. However, some health care providers are reluctant to screen women. This column takes a second look at two recent research studies in which investigators examined the barriers to and facilitators of perinatal depression screening.

Our obstetric nursing unit was faced with low patient satisfaction scores in the area of pain management. We wondered if enabling women to control their own over-the-counter medication administration would help with the scores. Working together with interdisciplinary teams, members of this nursing unit implemented practice changes and, in the process, realized improved patient satisfaction scores.

REVIEW
Jenna Alana LoGiudice
For women who have experienced sexual abuse, the physical changes associated with pregnancy and the lack of control during birth can be catalysts for trauma from past abuse to resurface. This systematic review offers women's health care providers a thorough evaluation of the state of the science on survivors' childbearing experiences. The literature shows that lack of control, dissociation, and flashbacks are common themes. Re-experiencing of the trauma occurred during various stages of childbirth and was traumatizing to women...

REVIEW
Martha E Farrar Highfield, Carolyn Scharf-Swaller, Lawrence Chu
Simulation may help both novice and experienced clinicians maintain competence in managing high-risk, low-frequency obstetric and perinatal complications and emergencies. Therefore, we designed a pre-/posttest study to determine whether a day of nurse-led lecture plus low-fidelity simulation would increase registered nurses' self-assessed knowledge and confidence in managing five high-risk obstetric/perinatal situations. The Nursing Management of OB/Perinatal Complications & Emergencies (NursOB) scale was distributed to 67 labor/birth and postpartum nurses before and after a simulation training day...

REVIEW
Patricia D Suplee, Lisa Kleppel, Anne Santa-Donato, Debra Bingham
Maternal morbidity and mortality rates remain high in the United States compared with other developed countries. Of particular concern is the rise in postpartum deaths, because many of the risk factors for complications associated with maternal morbidity and mortality may not be clearly identified before a woman's discharge after birth. Although nurses provide some form of postpartum discharge education to all women who give birth, the information women receive on common potential complications is not always consistent or evidence based...

Cindra Holland, Peggy Foster, Deborah Ulrich, Kathryn Adkins
We implemented an evidence-based practice improvement project at a health care facility in the Midwestern United States to address the increasing rate of cesarean surgical site infections. Women who experienced cesarean birth were cared for using a standardized evidence-based protocol including preoperative and postoperative care and education. In addition, a team-created educational video was used by both women and their families during the postoperative period and at home after discharge. This new protocol resulted in a decrease in the rate of cesarean surgical site infections from 1...

Diagnostic ultrasound can be used in late pregnancy to assess a fetus's condition, especially when there are complications. However, it remains controversial to carry out scans in late pregnancy on all pregnant women. Reasons for performing these scans include detecting clinical conditions that place a fetus or woman at high risk that would not necessarily have been detected by other means (such as clinical examination) and for which subsequent management would improve perinatal outcomes.

Ashley L Hodges, Aimee C Holland
The 21st century has witnessed an increasingly prevalent trend of women removing their pubic hair. Body hair removal norms have changed significantly over the past several decades. Regardless of the motivation or technique behind pubic hair grooming, this trend is presenting a unique challenge for health care professionals with regard to health education about safe removal and treatment for associated injuries and infections. To provide appropriate education to women, nurses and other clinicians should be familiar with cultural norms, motivations, expectations, methods, dangers, best practices, and treatment options...

Sharon C Hitchcock
In October 2016, the American Academy of Pediatrics published updated guidelines for safe infant sleep. Although there are no major changes to the recommendations, there are many small additions and clarifications important to the work of nurses. Topics addressed in this article include breastfeeding, skin-to-skin contact, swaddling, room-sharing, bed-sharing, new products, pacifiers, loose bedding, and sitting devices. It is important for nurses and other clinicians to model recommended behaviors with regard to safe infant sleep and to have conversations with parents and caregivers about safe infant sleep throughout the hospital stay...

There are currently three forms of emergency contraception: oral levonorgestrel, oral ulipristal acetate, and the copper intrauterine device. The copper intrauterine device is the most effective, followed by ulipristal acetate and levonorgestrel, respectively. Although levonorgestrel is the least effective method, studies show that more prescribers are familiar with it and that is the most frequently used method. Clinicians should consider several factors when helping women make informed medical decisions regarding emergency contraception, including access to the products, a woman's individual preference, timing since unprotected intercourse, body mass index or weight, and initiation or resumption of routine contraception...

Amelia Polheber, Kristi Feutz
In 2009, the Institute of Medicine published the report Weight Gain During Pregnancy: Reexamining the Guidelines as a call to action for health care providers. The report suggests that at 6 months postpartum, approximately 50% of women still retained an excess weight of 10 pounds or more and that 25% retained 20 pounds or more. Long-term consequences of postpartum weight retention and subsequent obesity include postpartum depression, successive pregnancy complications, and chronic health conditions. This article describes Motivated Moms, an evidence-based postpartum weight management program in an outpatient clinic...

Cindi Faith Bennett, Jane S Grassley
Mothers of late preterm infants need timely breastfeeding support after hospital discharge. Breastfeeding peer counselors with the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) can provide this support, but communication with hospitals is needed to facilitate early contact with women. We aimed to develop and implement a sustainable organizational process that would expedite support by providing WIC peer counselors access to mothers of late preterm infants before hospital discharge...

Lucie J Agosta, Cheri Johnson
Increased incidence of both nulliparous, term, singleton, vertex and overall cesarean birth rates has warranted close monitoring and scrutiny by various health care associations and by individual obstetric facilities and providers of obstetric care. Concerted efforts to reduce rates of nonmedically indicated cesarean birth have resulted in the development and implementation of comprehensive action plans aimed at effecting reductions and enhancing overall obstetric quality care. Here we describe how a multidisciplinary team at our hospital developed and implemented interventions aimed at reducing rates of cesarean birth...

Joyce K Edmonds, Gabriella Zabbo
We conducted a cross-sectional, descriptive, qualitative study, set in a postpartum unit, of 21 nulliparous women who spontaneously went into term labor at home. Our aim was to characterize symptoms of labor onset and progression to active labor before hospital admission for childbirth. The most frequent symptoms reported at labor onset were contractions, pain, ruptured membranes, cramping, and feelings of nervousness and excitement. Women reported that as labor progressed to the active phase, their pain increased, length and strength of contractions increased, and labor symptoms became more difficult to tolerate...
