#1
Robyn Schafer, Melissa Davis, Julia C Phillippi
Herpes zoster (shingles) is the reactivation of dormant varicella zoster virus in individuals who previously experienced varicella infection or vaccination. Herpes zoster can occur in pregnancy, although it is rare. This case report describes the clinical presentation and diagnosis of herpes zoster and reviews current recommendations for treatment. Preventative measures and the role of immunization are discussed in addition to clinical implications for intrapartum, postpartum, and newborn care to guide practitioners in caring for women experiencing or exposed to herpes zoster in pregnancy...

Bartholin duct cysts and gland abscesses can affect a woman's day-to-day functioning and be challenging to manage. Many Bartholin duct cysts that are not infected remain asymptomatic and resolve spontaneously without intervention. However, an infected Bartholin duct cyst or glandular abscess should be drained when larger than 2 cm because such cysts or abscesses do not tend to resolve spontaneously and can recur. Management options fall under 3 broad categories: expectant, medical, or surgical. With special training, midwives and women's health nurse practitioners can manage many women who present with Bartholin duct cysts or gland abscesses...

INTRODUCTION: New Mexico, a state with a high incidence of opioid overdose deaths, requires certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) who prescribe controlled substances to use the statewide Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP). This study examined how frequently CNMs who practice in New Mexico and prescribe controlled substances use the PMP and the purposes for which they use it. METHODS: All CNMs licensed in New Mexico (N = 210) were sent a link to an anonymous online survey...

Upper respiratory infections (URIs) are the most common reason for which individuals seek health care services in the outpatient clinical setting. This case report describes the clinical presentation and management of a woman with a URI. The signs and symptoms of URIs, physical examination, differential diagnoses, and treatment plan options available in the ambulatory care setting are reviewed. Current evidence-based guidelines are discussed, and recommendations for clinical practice are reviewed. Discussion of the incidental treatment of URIs in the specialty care setting is also addressed...

INTRODUCTION: Intrauterine devices and contraceptive implants are recommended as first-line contraceptives by health care professional societies. However, uptake among US women lags substantially behind other developed countries. Little information is available on the extent to which clinicians document discussion about long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) in this patient population. We sought to determine the frequency with which clinicians document LARC discussion with eligible women aged 14 to 25 years in a training clinic and evaluate factors associated with LARC discussion and uptake...

REVIEW
Megan McDowell, Mary Ashley Cain, Jessica Brumley
Excessive gestational weight gain (GWG) is associated with an increasing incidence of maternal and neonatal complications, including hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, fetal macrosomia, and increased cesarean birth rates. In the United States, it is recommended that health care providers use an individualized approach to counsel a woman about pregnancy weight gain goals that is based on the woman's initial body mass index (BMI) and to track GWG throughout the pregnancy by evaluating maternal weight at each visit...

INTRODUCTION: Skin-to-skin care (SSC) immediately after birth is recommended for all women and their newborns. Barriers to SSC after cesarean birth lead to delays in initiation of this practice. The purpose of this quality improvement project was to implement an innovative approach with volunteer doulas to support initiation of SSC after cesarean for all clients. PROCESS: Volunteer doulas in a well-established hospital-based program within an academic health center were trained to provide care during scheduled cesarean births in the operating and recovery rooms...

INTRODUCTION: Although elevated blood glucose is associated with adverse maternal and fetal health outcomes, evidence suggests that women with diabetes may not be receiving comprehensive reproductive health care, including family planning and preconception care. Using a population-based sample, we evaluated the relationship between contraceptive use and biomarker-identified diabetes. METHODS: This cross-sectional study used data from 5548 women in the nationally representative National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health) from 2007 to 2009...

REVIEW
Caroline Handschuh, Allison La Cross, Arlene Smaldone
INTRODUCTION: A growing body of research has addressed adolescent use of mobile devices to exchange sexually explicit images and messages (sexting). Although there are legal consequences in some states for sexting among adolescents, research findings have also demonstrated associations between sexting and sexual activity. The purpose of this systematic review was to synthesize research examining the association between adolescent sexting and sexual activity. METHODS: Five databases (CINAHL, Embase, Ovid MEDLINE, PsycINFO, and Scopus) were searched for studies measuring adolescent sexting and sexual behaviors...

REVIEW
Jana Esden, Nancy Pesta-Walsh
Asthma is a common condition affecting 8.3% of the adult population in the United States. The disease is characterized by chronic airway inflammation that leads to airway hyperresponsiveness and obstruction that results in coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and a feeling of chest tightness. The diagnosis and classification of asthma is based on reported symptoms, physical examination findings, and spirometry. Pharmacologic therapy is prescribed using a stepwise approach that begins with inhaled short-acting beta2 -agonists for intermittent asthma with the addition of daily inhaled corticosteroids for more persistent cases...

This study tested the feasibility and acceptability of an online mindfulness intervention for pregnant women as an approach to reduce depressive and anxious symptoms. METHOD: We developed an 8-week mindfulness intervention program that trained participants to monitor their internal and external experiences in an accepting way. The mindfulness course was based on the Wechat platform...
