I am looking for feedback on two topics related to Maternal/Child care (Postpartum). Firstly, what are some of your viewpoints on early (24 hr or less) post partum discharge for Moms and babies...this would be term, healthy, vaginal deliveries, with no "issues". Secondly do any of you work in a facility where a Clinical Pathway has been implemented in Obstetrics, from antepartum, right through to postpartum discharge? If so, what do you think of the success of the pathway, does it enhance pt. care, expedite discharge, or whatever the purpose of the pathway is supposed to be
Thanks for all your help(s)!
