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.

Heidi Collins Fantasia
In 2002, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the Essure system for permanent birth control. Implantation with this device offers a minimally invasive option for permanent female contraception that is placed during a brief office visit. Unlike laparoscopic tubal sterilization, the Essure procedure requires no hospitalization or general anesthesia, resulting in minimal recovery time. After a decade of stability in the report of adverse effects, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration noted a sharp increase in patient-reported adverse events, including chronic pelvic pain, irregular bleeding, allergic reactions, and autoimmune-like reactions...

Nadia N Abuelezam, Holly B Fontenot
The difficult and tense political climate Arab populations are currently facing may be exacerbating mental health issues, reducing forms of social support in friend circles, and decreasing the desire to seek health care. There is room to better understand the mental health needs of Arab women residing in the United States and to develop policies and interventions that keep these women safe and in care. This column reviews two recent studies; the first examines barriers to reporting intimate partner violence and depression among Arab American women and the second highlights stressors and social support for Arab women immigrants throughout their immigration experience...

Advancements in methods of fertility preservation have resulted in more options available to women seeking to postpone reproduction. Preservation of unfertilized oocytes provides women with the possibility for reproduction even after age-related declines in fertility might make conceiving a child difficult to impossible. As oocyte cryopreservation rises in popularity among women, it is crucial for nurses and other clinicians to understand the background, process, ethical issues, and risks involved to help women make informed medical decisions...

Creating an environment that optimally supports exclusive breastfeeding can require a cultural transformation. Our initial attempt at obtaining Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) designation was unsuccessful when surveyors determined insufficient enculturation of BFHI practices. Using Kotter's theory of change, we overcame the barriers, enhanced our practices, and effectively transformed the culture, and our facility ultimately became the first maternity hospital in Pennsylvania to obtain BFHI designation...

Greta Horn, Darlene D'Angelo
Traditional 0-to-10 pain assessment may be inadequate during labor. The Coping Assessment for Laboring Moms (CALM) scale was developed to focus on facial, behavioral, psychosocial, vocalization, and verbal expressions to aid holistic nursing support during childbirth. Using a comparative design, the 0-to-10 pain and CALM scales were evaluated to determine differences in women's perceptions of nursing presence using the Positive Presence Index during labor at a community hospital in the Pacific Northwest. Positive Presence Index scores for knowing what would work best for me, comforting touch, taking care of everything so I could concentrate, and understanding what I was saying were significantly higher among women when nurses used the CALM tool to guide labor support...

Postpartum depression is a debilitating disorder that requires greater awareness and treatment. Depending on severity of symptoms, standard treatment calls for individual psychotherapy and medication. Although postpartum depression can lead to negative health outcomes for women and their offspring, numerous barriers prevent women from receiving appropriate care. A review of the literature shows that nontraditional modes of psychotherapy dominate recent studies, whereas data for other complementary options are severely lacking...
