The paper consists of two (2) parts and must be submitted by the close of week six.
Part one (1) looks at the causes and management interventions of discomfort and pain during pregnancy, labor, birth and recovery from birth. Part two (2) is a component of a teaching plan the registered nurse would use to assist an antenatal patient make an informed decision regarding pain relief measures to be used during labor and birth.
In order for the woman to make an informed decision regarding pain relief measures to be used in the intrapartum period, the information needs to be provided in the antepartum period.
Before finalizing a teaching plan for the pregnant woman, her history needs to be assessed to determine any variables that may affect the content of the teaching plan. For example, are there any language variables/barriers that will affect care provided during labor and birth?
