Need help with priority Nursing Dx for first stage of labor

  1. All we were given to go off of was that we are to make a nursing care plan with a full page single space of nursing diagnosis for a woman during stage 1 of term labor & vaginal birth. Pt would be considered normal and low risk. Priorities cannot be hemorrhage, inverted uterus, ruptured uterus or anything life threatening. I have basics like acute pain, powerlessness, anxiety and fatigue. But how would I prioritize these? We have to pick three priority and then a first priority and write a care plan on that. I have the NANDA diagnosis book and used those. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Your patient may be fearful...this will affect their coping

    They will have pain

    You can feel powerless.

    According to Maslows...what is important first?
