Abstract

The overarching goal of postpartum care is to provide a safe, family-centered environment where women and providers engage in shared decision making to select treatment plans that promote physiologic and emotional adaption and family bonding. The birth process and the fourth stage of labor are dynamic and present potential risk to mother and baby. Postpartum hemorrhage remains a leading cause of maternal mortality throughout the world. Manifesting as cardiac arrest or stroke, arterial thromboembolism accounts for approximately 20% of pregnancy-associated cases of thromboembolism. Postpartum hypertension (PPHTN) is a serious and potentially underappreciated problem that may persist from pregnancy. Additional risk factors include infant characteristics such as difficult temperament, prematurity, or illness, and maternal factors such as unrealistic expectations of motherhood, low self-esteem and self-efficacy, previous depression, and a history of trauma, abuse, or perinatal loss.
