Women who are homeless are less likely to receive preconception care or prenatal care in the first trimester, and they tend to have fewer prenatal visits overall than their housed counterparts. Homelessness during pregnancy can increase the risk for many maternal, fetal, and neonatal complications. Barriers to proper prenatal care can be categorized as logistical, psychosocial, intellectual, and attitudinal. Although all women face potential barriers to optimal care, women who are homeless are particularly vulnerable and experience these barriers to a greater degree...

Acute fatty liver of pregnancy (AFLP) occurs less frequently than similarly challenging complications in pregnancy. Early recognition is key to reduce morbidity and mortality. Women present with symptoms common to many illnesses, and AFLP typically occurs in the third trimester. Laboratory test values typical of preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome are seen with AFLP. There are distinguishing laboratory test that help differentiate AFLP from other conditions. AFLP can cause coagulopathy, which can pose a challenge in childbirth...

REVIEW
Harinder Dosanjh Raipuria, Briana Lovett, Laura Lucas, Victoria Hughes
Certified nurse-midwives are usually recognized as independently practicing advanced practice registered nurses because they provide maternity care to pregnant women in various states. In the United States, certified nurse-midwives are historically underused. Culture favors physician-led care, with 90% of all births attended by physicians. Midwifery-led care is considered high-touch/low-intervention and is guided by a philosophy of care that regards pregnancy and childbirth as normal life events for most women...

Genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), formerly referred to as vulvovaginal atrophy or atrophic vaginitis, is a common chronic condition that requires a collaborative treatment plan between a health care provider and a woman to relieve symptoms and improve quality of life. Many women are not aware that symptoms can be controlled with treatment. Current treatment options approved for GSM include vaginal moisturizers, lubricants, and hormones. For women with GSM symptoms that are unresponsive to nonhormonal therapy, low-dose vaginal estrogen therapy is the preferred pharmacologic treatment...

Jacqueline R Sly, Allyssa L Harris
Women ages 50 years and older are at risk for herpes zoster, a reactivated virus from varicella zoster virus (chickenpox) that causes a painful vesicular rash and can result in postherpetic neuralgia. It is estimated that one in three adults will be affected by herpes zoster in their lifetime. Research evidence points to the need to prevent herpes zoster through vaccination. Since 2006, clinicians have been vaccinating adults with zoster vaccine live (brand name Zostavax), but the efficacy of this vaccine wanes with time and advanced age...

REVIEW
Amanda R Bartelson, Melissa A Sutherland
Experiences of trauma affect the health needs of women across all groups, particularly in vulnerable populations such as undocumented immigrant women or refugee women. Nurses across inpatient and outpatient settings providing care to these women can consider how women's experiences of trauma and barriers they encounter to accessing resources may affect their experience of health care. In this article, we review two recent studies in which researchers examined the experiences of trauma and posttraumatic stress in women who are undocumented immigrants or refugees...

EDITORIAL
Steven E Golden
Male nurses and nursing students who work in maternity care often experience role strain, reverse discrimination, and gender bias. There are various strategies that clinical instructors, floor nurses, nursing school faculty, and nurse managers can implement to help maintain gender equality in maternity nursing while still considering how to honor the wishes of some women who may be uncomfortable with a male presence.

Hypertension is a leading risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease. In 2017, the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association published a new guideline for the prevention, detection, evaluation, and management of hypertension. The guideline adjusts the clinical parameters for diagnosis and management of hypertension. In this article we summarize the updates and provide some background on these changes as they relate to nursing practice implications, with specific implications for women's health...

Latina women of low socioeconomic status are particularly vulnerable to morbidity and mortality from cervical cancer. Lower rates of screening are associated with increased mortality rates in this population. Community health workers known as promotoras de salud can be an effective part of the health care team to help improve health care access in this population. Promotoras using a cervical cancer education curriculum known as AMIGAS can help promote access to services, provide education, and possibly save lives in an underserved population...
