Complex Prenatal/Postpartum Complications: Early Identification and Management


This course was initially prepared for and delivered to an audience of community-based nurses who served late prenatal and early post-partum at-risk maternal populations. It is designed so that the registered nurse should be able to identify current causes of maternal mortality in the United States and Texas, integrate current evidence regarding complications such as preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, postpartum hemorrhage, and postpartum depression into daily practice with pregnant and postpartum women, recognize and differentiate between normal pregnancy and postpartum changes, abnormal pregnancy and postpartum signs, and signs needing urgent or emergent treatment, and to provide guidance, education, and referrals to pregnant and postpartum women in the Central Texas area.
