Through the new Postpartum Discharge Education (PDE) Implementation Community, nurses and clinicians will learn that incorporating consistent messaging into postpartum teaching prior to new mother discharge can save lives. Using AWHONN’s POST-BIRTH warning signs checklist, new mothers can be aware of symptoms they may experience in the postpartum period and know when to seek medical assistance. The upcoming Implementation Community starts February 22, 2017.
AWHONN’s first evidence-based clinical practice guideline addressing diabetes, provides comprehensive recommendations for nurses who care for women with diabetes-- types 1 or 2 and gestational diabetes (A1 or A2)--during pregnancy, labor and postpartum, and their babies. Included are recommendations for blood glucose targets and monitoring in pregnancy, intravenous insulin administration during labor, and neonatal hypoglycemia and feeding guidelines. The guideline will be invaluable for nurses, midwives, and nurse-practitioners working in both outpatient and inpatient settings.
