This clinical practice guideline provides recommendations for the care of pregnant women having cesarean births and other surgical procedures in the general operating room (OR) based on scientific principles and empiric evidence.


Updated from 2011 this evidence-based guideline provides recommendations for the care of pregnant women having cesarean births and other surgical procedures based on scientific principles and empiric evidence.


New to this edition:

  • Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) which is not currently being implemented for all cesarean births and is highly recommended to decrease opioid use, decrease length of stay, improve overall maternal satisfaction and improve outcomes.
  • Skin antisepsis and prevention of infection including vaginal cleansing and vaginal seeding. Immediate skin-to-skin contact including safety measures for the mother and newborn
  • Safe staffing recommendations
  • Discharge planning and maternal education
  • Identified research priorities in this area
  • Strength of recommendation table for each individual recommendation


Included with the guideline is a Quick Care Guide, a handy bedside reference tool that summarizes key practice recommendations for nursing care during the preoperative, intraoperative, and immediate post operative periods.
