The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently updated the U.S. Selected Practice Recommendations for Contraceptive Use to foster a reduction in unplanned pregnancy rates and to provide clinicians an evidence-based guide for contraception management. Nurses play an important role in helping women and families with reproductive life planning. By bridging knowledge gaps and removing access barriers with regard to contraception, nurses can contribute to reducing rates of unintended pregnancy. Nurses and other clinicians are encouraged to use the U...

Recent advances in human papillomavirus (HPV) science have led to updates to national HPV vaccine recommendations. This column takes a second look at two recent studies that provide evidence to support the current two-dose HPV vaccination schedule for youth ages 9 to 14 years. This short review will help nurses and other clinicians understand the health and economic benefits of the current dosing recommendation. Nurses are leaders in national vaccination efforts; therefore, it is vital that they remain up to date on the latest evidence that supports vaccination practice as well as health counseling and HPV vaccine recommendations...

The Iraq and Afghanistan wars are unlike earlier wars, and the women veterans who have served in them are unlike veterans of earlier wars. Now these veterans are presenting with distinctive general, genitourinary, reproductive, and behavioral health issues. When seeking health care after deployment, they may be accessing multiple health care providers across numerous sites, including the Veterans Health Administration and civilian facilities. Enhanced levels of understanding, respect, and concern for the many combat-related health challenges experienced by these veterans will help civilian nurses and other clinicians provide optimum care...

The birth of a child is a life transition that can signal an opportunity to promote wellness and self-care. Nurses and other health care providers can encourage women to engage in exercise for physical and mental health and to enhance weight loss after birth. However, incorporating an exercise routine into life with an infant can be challenging. Sixty-two women provided feedback about their exercise patterns before and during pregnancy, and 18 of these women gave additional insight into barriers to and facilitators of exercise engagement after childbirth...

The Tiger Babies Breastfeeding Support Tent was established by a baccalaureate nursing program in southeastern Alabama to increase community awareness of the importance of breastfeeding and to provide a clean, convenient, and private location for nursing mothers during community events. Local advertising was distributed before community events to promote awareness and support of the project. Survey results indicate that 80% of mothers who used the tent's services would recommend the tent to their friends and family members...

To evaluate perinatal nursing care for Deaf women, we conducted a pilot, descriptive study exploring women's prenatal, labor, and postpartum experiences. We used the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) framework to analyze women's responses and to explore implications for practice. Themes and women's stories are presented within the QSEN structure to promote informed and individualized perinatal nursing care for Deaf families. It is essential for nurses to stay abreast of resources and technological advances and to use culturally competent principles of communication...

Transporting a newborn out of the operating room after cesarean birth can contribute to maternal awareness of discomfort, anxiety, and the need for administration of analgesics and anxiolytics for relief. This retrospective study analyzed the association between skin-to-skin contact in the operating room and administration of analgesics and anxiolytics to women in the operating and recovery rooms after cesarean birth. Our results indicated a trend toward decreased medication administration for women who experienced skin-to-skin contact and add to evidence supporting the incorporation of skin-to-skin contact in the operating room as the standard of care for cesarean birth...

#15
Heidi Collins Fantasia
Preeclampsia is a hypertensive disorder specific to pregnancy that remains a significant cause of maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality. Identification of women who are most at risk for preeclampsia is imprecise. Because of the potential negative health consequences of preeclampsia for women and newborns and the lack of effective screening mechanisms preventing preeclampsia is an important component of prenatal care. Researchers have documented that low-dose aspirin, taken daily after the first trimester, can decrease the development of preeclampsia and reduce the incidence of preterm birth and birth of small-for-gestational-age infants...

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a problem affecting women and families across the nation, and it has been associated with adverse pregnancy and birth outcomes. Here we describe how our team implemented an evidence-based protocol for the screening of pregnant women for IPV and case management for those experiencing violence. This protocol was implemented on an antepartum triage unit where nurses were educated on IPV, methods for screening pregnant women, and a brief intervention. Education included an online module and a live session with role-playing exercises...

The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative recommends that all mothers be shown how to breastfeed, even when mothers and newborns are separated. Most incarcerated women are separated from their infants after the postpartum hospital stay, creating barriers to breastfeeding. We examined breastfeeding among a sample of women participating in a prison-based pregnancy program. Quantitative data indicated that women who discussed breastfeeding with their doulas were more likely to initiate breastfeeding. Three qualitative themes were identified: Benefits of Breastfeeding, Barriers to Breastfeeding, and Role of the Doula...

#18
REVIEW
Kayla C Gatos
Most female-to-male (FTM) transgender men retain their cervixes and need comprehensive sexual health care, including cervical cancer screening. According to the literature, FTM individuals obtain cervical cancer screening less frequently and are less likely to be up to date on their Pap tests compared with cisgender women. Misinformation related to human papillomavirus and cervical cancer risk was noted for health care providers and FTM individuals. Absence of transgender-specific guidelines or trained health care providers presents barriers to cervical cancer screening for FTM individuals, and further research is indicated to develop comprehensive guidelines unique to the needs and experiences of this population...

REVIEW
Isabel Gregg
As modern family composition shifts-for many, away from a heteronormative nuclear family-so, too, must the health care that families receive. Lesbian women and their families face particular difficulties with maternity care in the United States and internationally, because many care providers lack an understanding of this population's specific health care needs. In this article, I examine the challenges faced by lesbian women during the transition period to new motherhood and recommend improvements that can be made by individual providers and the health care system as a whole to better provide culturally competent health care for this population...

REVIEW
Mary Rose Naugler, Kristine DiCarlo
The purpose of this integrative review was to identify interventions that increase compliance of nurses and of parents with safe sleep recommendations for premature infants. Ten studies were included in the final sample, including three studies with a prospective descriptive design, five quality improvement initiatives with an interventional research design, one secondary analysis, and one retrospective medical chart review. Study samples included neonatal nurses and parents of premature infants in NICUs and transitional care nurseries in Massachusetts, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Texas...
