You can also use alot of your normal physiological diagnoses. During our OB class we were taught to really emphasize the teaching and we should be using a lot of knowledge deficient diagnoses. This should help you get a good idea.
I appreciate both of you giving me the assistance. I seemed to be stuck on my care plan for new mom and baby and just needed some new ideas. I'm so used to the med-surg and critical care plans, but these are a little different. I guess in a sense they shouldn't be so complicated.
Do you have a Nursing Diagnosis book? It really helps a lot more than looking in a text book. You just look up Postpartum in the front of the book and it gives you a long list of nursing diagnoses. The one I have is by Ackley and Ladwig. It's great! I would definately recommend purchasing one as it will save you so much time!
[font=tahoma] my ob textbook is very limited on diagnoses.
you could also throw in a few med-surg related diagnoses (specific to your pt).
did she have a c-section? - mobility
is she diabetic? - metabolic complications
does she have excessive lochia rubra? - f&e imbalances
does she have hiv/aids or any contagious systemic disease? - prophylaxis implications for the baby
