C-Section?

  1. What STDs would a C-Section be recomended? Was seeing a 17 yr old (due in July) with genital herpes at our mental health clinic re: temp tx. with Zoloft (bi-polar, had to come off Depakote). Heard that she tested positive for another STD but haven't heard the result from the health dept. Therapist worried because she bolted.

    Herpes is #1 on the list that I can think of. If mom is having an outbreak. I work mostly the baby end of things, so of course we wish they would cut for more things thatn they do.

    A c-section is indicated for a pt. with a herpes outbreak.

    We've also sectioned a mom who's warts were so prolific they occluded the vagina.

    Yeah, gross.

    Yuck! Hey, I recently came in to see one of our most seasoned eve nurses with a green (not really) face brought on by what she said was her most gross SVE ever...This not only intrigued but concerned me as I was following her. She dared me to do the exam without reading the chart but to be sure to wear several pairs of gloves. Well, I did read the chart-HPV...So??? Well, it was like feeling my way through a bumpy road of some proportion I have yet to travel...YUCK! She then went on to have a precipitous delivery (she was all of 16) and with no time for a c/s! Well, guess who didn't want to touch the child????

    i have noticed that all this attention is centered around c-sectioning HSV patients with outbreak, but no-one seems to have any print or advice re: wart generating HPV and c-sections.

    I am new to OB as a nurse, and don't really know what the clinical practice tends to be, all i know is that I have tried to research it, and to no avail....

    any words?
