Hi, need to submit a 250 words essay on the topic Reflection scenario based.
There is no cure for the condition other than early delivery of the baby at 37 or 38th week (Sibai et al. 2005). After being monitored for a day and blood pressures stabilized, Jennifer was discharged. My instructor and I visited Jennifer at her home three times a week to provide care to her. Our major tasks were to monitor the blood pressures, check the urine for any protein and check her wait.
My instructor provided appropriate advice and support to Jennifer and her husband regarding her care. Jennifer was advised to stop performing heavy tasks, reducer her activity level and possible spend a lot of time in bed rest to control her blood pressure levels. Jennifer was advised of the position for a bed rest either on the left or on the right side. I learned that lying on the back is important to allow blood to flow to the placenta bringing more blood to the baby. If tired she was advised to sit up or move around at times. She was also advised to monitor how much fluid she drinks and as well monitor how often her baby kicks and moves (Sibai 2011). Her husband was advised on the importance of providing support to her wife to reduce anxiety levels. I learned that it is significant of midwives to communicate effectively with patients and adopt organizations aspects of care in delivering high quality care services. In future, this experience will help me to deliver appropriate care to a mother with mild pre-eclampsia at the community
