Chapter 11 1. The nurse is preparing a class for expectant fathers. Which information should the nurse include? 2. Sexual activity is safe for normal pregnancy. Rationale 2: During a normal pregnancy, sexual activity is safe for both mother and baby. 2. The nurse is caring for a pregnant patient. The patient’s husband has come to the prenatal visit. Which question is best for the nurse to use to assess the adaptation to pregnancy by the father-to-be? 4. “How are you feeling about becoming a father?” Rationale 4: The adaptation of a husband to pregnancy includes his feelings about impending fatherhood. 3. The nurse is caring for a patient in the prenatal clinic. The patient recently arrived in the United States as a refugee from a country in Africa. This is the first patient from this cultural background with whom the nurse has worked. Which intervention is most appropriate in the care of this patient? 1. Ask the patient about her expectations during the labor and birth. Rationale 1: Women new to the U.S. will have little or no experience with the U.S. health care system. Culture heavily influences a patient’s behaviors and attitudes during pregnancy, labor, and birth, so determining what the patient wants during her labor and birth will facilitate both a better experience for the family and a calmer situation for the health care team. 4. A Hispanic American patient who is 26 weeks pregnant asks if her curandero, or folk healer, may accompany her to all future prenatal appointments. Which response by the nurse reflects respect for the patient's cultural beliefs? 1. "Yes, we will work as a team as much as possible in taking care of you." Rationale 1: During pregnancy and birth, cultural and spiritual practices, including alternative healers and caregivers, should be incorporated into prenatal care as much as possible. 5. A Chinese woman who is 16 weeks pregnant reports to the nurse that ginseng and bamboo leaves help to reduce her anxiety. How should the nurse respond to this patient?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
