NB: This assignment contains two separate papers.
MA Part 3
Part 1: An 18-year-old Primigravida presents to Labor And Delivery with what appears to be active labor. Upon questioning, you discover she has received no prenatal care. In obtaining some history while placing her on the fetal monitor you learn she is a smoker, approximately 1 pack per day, occasional marijuana for stress, and denies any support system. The Father of the Baby (FOB) has no knowledge of the pregnancy. No prenatal vitamins – they were too hard to swallow. She has no idea when her LMP was, and she relates always being very irregular. * remember LMP is to ask the first day of the Last Menstrual cycle, not when the bleeding stopped*
What other questions are essential for her safe care?
What lab values do you need to obtain?
What exam findings should you obtain at this time?
What education will you provide for her?
She asks you how long this will take to have the baby – what is your best response?
