Last week our study titled: Nurses' Knowledge and Teaching of Possible Postpartum Complications was published early view by the American Journal of Maternal Child Health.

We identified in this study and related work the following opportunities for improving POST-BIRTH discharge education:

  • Improve what nurses know about the rates and timing of maternal morbidity and mortality.
  • Improve nurses' confidence in teaching women about the signs and symptoms of the most common warning signs, especially cardiovascular diseases.
  • Ensure that ALL women receive education about POST-BIRTH warning signs. It is impossible to predict who will get a complication.

Explore more POST-BIRTH resources, which outline the 9 most common warning signs every woman, their partners, friends, other family members, nurses, midwives, and physicians should know about.
