The final program in this five-part series will deal with post-partum care, including information on breast-feeding, hormonal changes, and physiologic healing of the birth process, whether vaginal or cesarean delivery. Parent teaching is also featured.
Clinical assignments to prenatal clinics or labor and delivery units are difficult to arrange and many women are discharged soon after delivery, therefore, caring for these women may not be possible for students. Because this video was filmed with real patients who needed various forms of care and teaching, students can witness the assessments made, interventions given to alleviate discomfort, and nurse-mother interactions in which parenting techniques are discussed.
This program has an accompanying Instructor's Guide, which includes objectives, a glossary, previewing and post-viewing tests as well as discussion and clinical application questions to promote critical thinking of students.



    • The huge advantage of this series is that the women filmed are not actresses but actually mothers during their immediate post-partum periods.
    • This video is part of an updated version of the best-selling original Pregnancy, Labor, and Delivery series which was done in 2004. The original script and footage have been reviewed and where necessary, current techniques, guidelines, and other new pertinent information have been incorporated into the film to reflect today's standards of care.
    • In addition, this new program is organized differently so that it is more linear, and easier for the student to understand. New information has also been added and the format has been changed so that it is more documentary-like, with the interviewee exploring feelings and concerns of post-partum women.

    ASSESSMENT OF THE NEW MOTHER & BABY filmed in the Mother/Baby Unit of Intermountain Utah Valley Regional Medical using mothers during their actual postpartum experience and newborns in the Nursery and Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NBICU), vividly and accurately demonstrates the nurses' role in the care of the new mother and baby. The program is presented in three complementing components: POSTPARTUM ASSESSMENTS AND INTERVENTIONS, NEONATAL ASSESSMENT, AND GESTATIONAL AGE EVALUATION. POSTPARTUM ASSESSMENTS AND INTERVENTIONS covers the nurse's role in the comprehensive care needed for mothers who experience a vaginal or Cesarean birth. NEONATAL ASSESSMENT illustrates the nurse's responsibility in Apgar scoring and performing both an initial and brief assessment soon after birth followed by a comprehensive physical examination. A demonstration of health screening for hemoglobin level, hypoglycemia, mandatory metabolic and endocrine problems is covered as well as the administration of Vit. K and eye medication. GESTATIONAL AGE EVALUATION demonstrates the nurse examining term, pre-term and post-term infants to determine their gestational age.
