    B, because it would likely cause a hematoma and a pool of blood in the scalp. At least that's my "educated guess".

    I think its A though because a precipitous birth is labor that is less than 3 hours. This can cause trauma in the newborn & will contribute to hyperbilirubinemia.

    The key word thats standing out to me is "physiologic jaundice"

    Differentiation of physiological vs. Pathological is key and im a little stumped here

    I thinks its A because the baby will start breast feeding much sooner and that is a primary cause of physiological jaundice?

    I asked my nursing instructor & she told me that the answer is A because the precipitous birth is going to cause bruising which will cause jaundice. She said it wasn't B because the vacuum just causes edema.
