I am trying to sort between my nursing diagnoses for the second stage of labor. My instructors always say, "Think like a nurse. You're the nurse. What do you do?" Well, if it's second stage, I am helping the mom, encouraging her, telling when to push, using my fingers to stretch her vagina, monitoring the fetus to look for crowning, notifying the doctor when to come in, etc. I understand the priority interventions for the most part. I just don't know which nursing diagnosis matches those interventions.
