Adriane Burgess, Wendy McDowell, Stacie Ebersold
PURPOSE: Preeclampsia affects 3% to 8% of all pregnancies. There are two distinct subtypes; early- (<34 weeks) and late-onset (≥34 weeks). Each subtype is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Lactation has been shown to improve cardiovascular outcomes. The purpose of this study was to describe lactation practices among women with each subtype of preeclampsia and determine the association between lactation and blood pressure at the initial postpartum visit. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: This retrospective cohort study included 246 subjects; 120 early- and 126 with late-onset preeclampsia who gave birth to live singleton newborns at a large suburban tertiary referral center in south central Pennsylvania between January 2012 and June 2016...

PURPOSE: Breastfeeding-related pain is commonly experienced early in the postpartum period and is an important contributor to breastfeeding cessation, yet little is known about what this pain means to women and how it is experienced. The purpose of this study was to gain a better understanding of the phenomenon of breastfeeding-related pain, how women experience this pain, and the meaning it holds for them. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: Interpretive descriptive methods and inductive content analysis were used...

INTRODUCTION: Evidence supports numerous positive clinical benefits of doula care. There are varying attitudes among physicians, midwives, and nurses toward support of doulas in a collaborative approach with women in labor. Tension and conflict with use of doulas may occur in some intrapartum settings in the United States. METHODS: A scoping review of the literature between January 2008 and January 2018 was conducted using PubMed, CINAHL, Google Scholar, and Scopus database to identify specific attitudes of physicians, midwives, and nurses toward doulas; 1,810 records were identified and initially reviewed...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which labor and delivery nurses used the tenets of Swanson's middle-range theory to care for women whose babies were stillborn. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: A secondary analysis of qualitative in-depth interview data from 20 labor and delivery nurses obtained during a recent grounded theory study was conducted using the directed content analysis method. The five caring processes as described in Swanson's theory were used as a priori codes to conduct the analysis...

Providing nursing care to perinatally bereaved women and their families is difficult, emotionally demanding, and complicated. Here we demonstrate how, through understanding the theoretical underpinnings of Guided Participation and perinatal grief intensity, nurses can significantly expand their competence and confidence in their ability to provide highly individualized, supportive, relationship-based perinatal bereavement care. The way that parents respond to a perinatal loss may range from little response to highly intense, long-lasting grief...

PURPOSE: To describe the bereavement support needs of black urban women in late adolescence after perinatal loss.

Data from the interviews were analyzed using constant comparative analysis. RESULTS: Black adolescent women need culturally appropriate bereavement support targeted at key transition points along the bereavement trajectory...

There are several ways, clinically, to approach grief after perinatal death, including from a humanistic or a medicalized perspective. The death of a baby is complicated. The loss is an embodied one that incites deep psychological wounds and can be isolating for many parents. Parents process their grief experiences within a sometimes oppressive social context that either sees their expressions of loss as a normal response to an abnormal tragedy or as pathology. Several diagnostic categories have been proposed relative to the traumatic grief experiences of grieving parents that potentially affect them...
