This guideline provides recommendations for the care of pregnant women undergoing surgical procedures. The evidence-based approach includes a review of safety measures when caring for pregnant women needing surgery during pregnancy as well as specific sections focusing on preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative recommendations for surgical birth.

Based on the latest evidence, Perioperative Care of the Pregnant Woman describes the state-of- the-science guidelines that patient care facilities units and nurses should follow to help promote high quality care, including recommendations for:

  • Necessary competencies for OB OR nurses
  • Interventions to promote family-centered care during the pre-, intra- and post-operative periods
  • Assessment and care of women recovering from general and regional anesthesia
  • Appropriate OB OR staffing levels
  • Assessment and interventions for post-cesarean complications such as pulmonary embolus, wound infection and endometritis
  • Care of high-risk patients, including special considerations for safe care of the obese pregnant woman
  • Patient safety measures unique to the OB OR setting

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.
