Karen N. Hinson February 19, 2018 Maternal Child Nursing Joe on the one hand did not appreciate the explanation of all the side effects before caring for his wife and Mark who was not a first-time father felt there was too little information provided by the staff. I would say both fathers expressed the staff needed to provide better communication even after the bleeding has stopped the fathers didn’t understand all of the visits to the room. Once explained that could help remove their fears that something is still wrong. 3. How could nurses better care for the father of the baby during a postpartum hemorrhage event? I think it may be helpful to have an additional nurse or other qualified support staff member to take the time on the side to explain the process to the father as the other members of the team are fast acting on the mother’s care. With more information they could feel more in control. And as Mark said you cannot ever really plan for that type of emergency maybe some literature about things that can happen after birth provided to the father could be helpful.

    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.
