Postpartum care plans
- 0Feb 18, '07 by luv2shopp85Can someone tell me where I could find a website to help with postpartum care plans? I have a careplan book but it doesn't have anything specifically for postpartum. My textbook also has very little information. Thanks in advance!

It's called Sparks & Taylor's Nursing Diagnosis Reference Manual 6th edition. Also, a lot of nursing diagnosis not specific to potpartum are still applicable. Best of luck.
- 0Feb 18, '07 by CEGI have a nursing diagnosis handbook too- it has diagnoses divided by conditions in the front- its by Ackley and Ludwig. I would probably go with risk for ineffective breastfeeding, risk for infection (esp c-section), risk for exhaustion, risk for altered body image, anything related to pain, altered thought processes (post-partum depression), constipation (narcotics+ fear), ineffective coping, etc. You would be surprised by how many of the normal ones apply, esp for c-sections. My most important would be ones related to breastfeeding- my personal pet subject. Good luck.

i've been looking too.
could you email the care plan to me too (i have to make a careplan for a postpartum family)?
thanks if you can do this.
- 0Oct 30, '07 by angel12hi! how are u? It's funny how many nurses or student nurses need postpartum careplans.. i'm sure u've received many messages asking u to email them ur careplan.. i was wondering if u have time to email me some too.. or even priority nursing diagnosis.. i already did knowledge deficit r/t breastfeeding and altered pain r/t c-section.. but i cant do the same careplans twice.. i mean for my patient, I THINK the priority is altered pain r/t c-sec cuz this is her first c-sec our of 3 deliveries.. so im lost..
thank u so much for ur time

you are not going to find any postpartum care plans on the internet. sorry. care plans are pretty much custom made. you will find information about the writing of care plans on the nursing student forums and in particular on these two threads:
- http://allnurses.com/forums/f205/des...ns-170689.html - desperately need help with careplans (in nursing student assistance forum)
- http://allnurses.com/forums/f50/care...-121128-7.html - careplans help please! (with the r\t and aeb) (in general nursing student discussion forum)
all care plans, regardless of what type of patient is involved, begin with doing a thorough assessment of the patient. a nursing diagnosis is nothing more than a label that is descriptive of the problems the patient has. the patient's problems are determined by the things you find during your assessment that are not normal. those abnormal things which are really the patient's signs and symptoms (nanda calls them defining characteristics) become the focus for your goals and nursing interventions--not the nursing diagnosis. so, put your work on this care plan into your assessment of the patient. you will find assessment information on these threads:

This forum doesn't provide careplans for use as a guide; we assume you have a textbook that will do that very nicely for you.
