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...

REVIEW
Cresilda T Newsom
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.

Sandra K Cesario
The United States is known as a nation of immigrants and a land of promise that welcomes the needy, poor, and oppressed. Immigrants represent some of the most vulnerable in society. It is vital that nurses and other health care providers possess knowledge of social, economic, and political factors related to health care for immigrant populations. This article provides definitions of the various immigrant populations, addresses health needs within this group, and offers suggestions for nursing practice and advocacy...

This article describes how a health care team changed practice by implementing delayed cord clamping as standard practice. After administration of a survey to assess clinicians' knowledge and to discover barriers to this proposed practice change, members of a multidisciplinary committee used the results to create a guideline for delayed cord clamping and a plan for successful implementation. Integral to embedding and sustaining changes in practice was development of the Delivery Room Brief and Debrief Tool and inclusion of the process into nursing guidelines and the electronic health record...

Cathi Phillips, Margaret Peggy Boyd
Sickle cell disease is the genetic disorder most commonly detected with state-mandated newborn screening. Women with sickle cell disease struggle with psychosocial, emotional, and physical challenges throughout their lives. Pregnancy for women with sickle cell disease brings greater risk for maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality and increased likelihood of hospitalization for complications, including sickle cell pain crisis. Chronic maternal opioid use for pain can place newborns at risk for neonatal abstinence syndrome...

The Golden Hour encompasses a set of evidence-based practices that contribute to the physiologic stabilization of the mother-newborn dyad after birth. Important elements of the Golden Hour include delayed cord clamping, skin-to-skin contact for at least an hour, the performance of newborn assessments on the maternal abdomen, delaying non-urgent tasks (e.g., bathing the newborn) for 60 minutes, and the early initiation of breastfeeding. The Golden Hour contributes to neonatal thermoregulation, decreased stress levels in a woman and her newborn, and improved mother-newborn bonding...

Marissa Tenenbaum Potter
Perinatal emotional complications are the most common pregnancy complications in the United States. This article reviews three recent studies that illustrate the prevalence of and risk factors for perinatal emotional complications and sheds light on the inconsistency of screening by health care providers in acute care and outpatient settings. Also presented is an example of nurse-led quality improvement initiatives aimed at implementing universal screening in a rural New England county, which resulted in 100% screening with the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale across health care facilities within the community, as well as a system-wide change in the approach to identifying and treating perinatal emotional complications...

Jeanette Brogan, Gloria Rapkin
There has been a recent trend toward delaying newborn baths because of mounting evidence that delayed bathing promotes breastfeeding, decreases hypothermia, and allows for more parental involvement with newborn care. A multidisciplinary team from a maternal-new-born unit at a military medical center designed and implemented an evidence-based practice change from infant sponge baths shortly after birth to delayed immersion baths. An analysis of newborn temperature data showed that newborns who received delayed immersion baths were less likely to be hypothermic than those who received a sponge bath shortly after birth...
