  • evidence
slide4

After Dr. Delee\'s slander campaign against the midwives and his successful campaign to scare our grandmothers to the hospital so that resident physicians might learn and have women to experiment upon during birth, Mary Breckenridge became the first American nurse midwife

Convinced that prolonged pounding of the fetal head against a rigid perineum caused brain injury, DeLee proposed his "prophylactic forceps" operation in 1922

History of PNC & its goals

  • 1901: Prevention of fetal abnormalities
  • Reduction fetal/maternal/neonatal †
  • Physicians vs midwives
  • Concerns about eclampsia
  • Reduce low BW, PTL, infant †
  • 1985: Expanded Medicaid. Improve populations birth weight distribution.
  • Counseling, education
statistics
Statistics
  • 4.3 million American babies/2006
  • 440.000 to teenage mothers
  • 75% receive adequate PNC
  • 7-11 visits/ pregnancy

Studies until mid 70s – no clear criteria

  • for adequate care

Counseling Issues in Pregnancy

Air travel

Air travel generally is safe for pregnant women until four weeks before the expected date of delivery.17

C

Lengthy trips are associated with increased risk of venous thrombosis.2

C

Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is the best feeding method for most infants. Breastfeeding contraindications include maternal HIV infection, chemical dependency, and use of certain medications.18

B

Structured behavior counseling and breastfeeding-education programs may increase breastfeeding success.18,19

B

Exercise

Pregnant women should avoid activities that put them at risk for falls or abdominal injuries.20

C

Scuba diving during pregnancy is not recommended.20

C

Hair treatments

Although hair dyes and treatments have not been associated clearly with fetal malformation, exposure to these treatments should be avoided during early pregnancy.21

C

Hot tubs and saunas

Hot tubs and saunas probably should be avoided during the first trimester of pregnancy.22,23

B

Maternal heat exposure during early pregnancy has been associated with neural tube defects and miscarriage.22,23

B

Labor and delivery

All pregnant women should be counseled about what to do when their membranes rupture, what to expect when labor begins, strategies to manage pain, and the value of labor support.1

C

Medications: prescription, over-the-counter, and herbal remedies

Few medications have been proven safe for use in pregnant women, particularly during the first trimester of pregnancy.2

C

Sex

Sexual intercourse during pregnancy is not associated with adverse outcomes.2

B

Substance use: alcohol

All pregnant women should be screened for alcohol misuse.25

B

There is no known safe amount of alcohol consumption during pregnancy. Abstinence is recommended.2,25

B

Substance use: illicit drugs

All pregnant women should be informed of the potential adverse effects of drug use on the fetus.27

C

Admission to a detoxification unit may be indicated. Methadone therapy in opiate-addicted women maybe life-saving.3

C

Substance use: smoking

All pregnant women should be screened for tobacco use, and pregnancy-tailored counseling should be provided to smokers.2,28

A

Workplace

Some working conditions, such as prolonged standing and exposure to certain chemicals, are associated with pregnancy complications.10

B

HIV = human immunodeficiency virus.

A = consistent, good-quality patient-oriented evidence; B = inconsistent or limited-quality patient-oriented evidence; C = consensus, disease-oriented evidence, usual practice, opinion, or case series. See page 1245 for more information.

Information from references 1 through 3, 10, and 17 through 28.

slide20

Seafood

Caffeine- containing drinks

Supplement

Pregnant women should avoid shark, swordfish, king mackerel, tilefish, and tuna steaks.109,110

Pregnant women should limit intake of other fish (including canned tuna) to 12 oz (2 to 3 meals) per week.109

Guidelines

Moderate amounts probably are safe. Some guidelines83,92,93 recommend limiting consumption to 150 to 300 mg per day.*

B

B

l

Calcium

Recommended daily intake is 1,000 to 1,300 mg per day1,79

Routine supplementation with calcium to prevent pre-eclampsia is not recommended.1 However, calcium supplementation may be beneficial for women at high risk for gestational hypertension or in communities with low dietary calcium intake.10,80

A

Folic acid

Supplementation with 0.4 to 0.8 mg of folic acid (4 mg for secondary prevention) should begin at least one month before conception.

A

RDA (in addition to supplements) is 600 mcg of dietary folate equivalents (e.g., legumes, green leafy vegetables, liver, citrus fruits, whole wheat bread) per day.82,83

B

Iron

Pregnant women should be screened for anemia (hemoglobin, hematocrit) and treated, if necessary.78

B

Pregnant women should supplement with 30 mg of ironper day.1,77

C

Vitamin A

Pregnant women in industrialized countries should limit vitamin A intake to less than 5,000 IU per day.*1

B

Vitamin D

Vitamin D supplementation can be considered in women with limited exposure to sunlight (e.g., northern locations, women in purdah).10,83 However, evidence on the effects of supplementation is limited.87

RDA is 5 mcg per day (200 IU per day).79

C

Food & supplements

slide21

Abdominal palpation

Abdominal palpation should be used to assess fetal presentation beginning at 36 weeks\' gestation.34,35

B

Blood pressure measurement

It is not known how often blood pressure should be measured, but most guidelines recommend measurement at each antenatal visit.27

C

Evaluation for edema

Edema occurs in 80 percent of pregnant women. It lacks specificity and sensitivity for the diagnosis of preeclampsia.36

C

Fetal heart tones

Auscultation for fetal heart tones is recommended at each antenatal visit. Heart tones confirm a viable fetus, but there is no evidence of other clinical or predictive value.10,33

C

Fetal movement counts

Routine fetal movement counting should not be performed.37,38

A

Symphysis fundus height measurement

Symphysis fundus height should be measured at each antenatal visit. Plotting the measurement on a graph is suggested for monitoring purposes.39-42

B

Urinalysis

Dipstick urinalysis does not detect proteinuria reliably in patients with early preeclampsia; measurement of 24-hour urinary protein excretion is the gold standard but is not always practical. Trace glycosuria also is unreliable, although higher concentrations may be useful.43-45

C

Weight measurement

Maternal height and weight measurements should be made at the first antenatal visit to determine body mass index, which is the basis for recommended weight gain in pregnancy.46-49

B

Maternal weight should be measured at each antenatal visit.46-49

C

Recommended

SORT: KEY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PRACTICE

Clinical recommendation

Comments

Azithromycin (Zithromax) is an effective treatment for chlamydia during pregnancy.

B

No long-term safety studies have been performed.

Intramuscular ceftriaxone (Rocephin) and oral cefixime (Suprax) are similar in effectiveness for gonorrhea during pregnancy.

B

Spectinomycin (Trobicin; not available in the United States) is also effective but is painful to use.

Initiation of acyclovir (Zovirax) or valacyclovir (Valtrex) treatment at 36 weeks\' gestation reduces the recurrence of genital herpes lesions and the number of cesarian deliveries performed because of genital herpes.

A

In patients with known herpes.

Serologic screening is not advocated.

Penicillin is effective in the prevention of congenital syphilis.

A

Needs to be found and treated early.

Screening should be carried out at the first visit.

Treatment of trichomoniasis does not reduce the incidence of preterm birth.

A

Screening in asymptomatic women is not recommended.

A = consistent, good-quality patient-oriented evidence; B = inconsistent or limited-quality patient-oriented evidence; C = consensus, disease-oriented evidence, usual practice, expert opinion, or case series. For information about the SORT evidence rating system, see page 176 or http://www.aafp.org/afpsort.xml.

slide23

Labor induction should be offered after 41 weeks\' gestation.

A

All pregnant women should be screened for active hepatitis B infection by surface antigen.

A

All pregnant women should be screened for asymptomatic bacteriuria by urine culture at 12 to 16 weeks\' gestation.

A

Sweeping of the membranes should be offered at term to reduce the need for labor induction.

A

All pregnant women should be screened for syphilis during their first prenatal visit.

A

Routine screening for bacterial vaginosis is not recommended.

A

All pregnant women should be tested for human immunodeficiency virus infection.
