23 Prenatal care

24 Prenatal Care Planned program of medical evaluation and management, observation, and education of the pregnant woman directed toward making pregnancy, labor, delivery and postpartum recovery a safe and satisfying experience

25 Good pregnancy outcome
Good prenatal care Good pregnancy outcome =

26 Prenatal Care Program Risk assessment Medical care Social services
Nutritional counseling Patient education Psychological support

27 Estimation Of Pregnancy
Naegele’s Rule Timing from ovulation Timing from quickening Height of fundus Ultrasound

28 Estimation Of Pregnancy
Naegele’s rule EDC= LMP -3months + 7 days Timing of Ovulation If last ovulation is known, days

29 Estimation Of Pregnancy
Height of the Fundus Superior boarder of symphysis pubis and top of fundus by palpation measured off from a vertical line drawn at the level of the greatest thickness of the fundus.(tape meas in cm) 12th wk :Symphysis pubis 16th wk: Approx halfway bet symphysis and umbilicus 20th wk: level of umbilicus 36th wk: just below ensiform cartilage

30 Estimation Of Pregnancy
Ultrasound: establish diagnosis of pregnancy, location, ovaries 1st trim: CRL 2nd trim: BPD 3rd trim: ave of femur length, BPD, HC, AC Timing of Quickening: perception of fetal movement Multipara: th wks Primigravida: 18-20th wk Not a primary method of assessing gestational age

31 Obstetric History Time in gestation when labor occurred Duration
Evidence of infertility Previous pregnancies Time in gestation when labor occurred Duration Type of delivery Complications Weight and sex of the baby Postpartum course of both mother and fetus

32 Physical Examination Systematic: Vital signs, weight, heart, lungs, breast, abdomen, FHT, Fundic height, fetal lie, pelvic exam, internal exam, extremities, etc. 1. Leopold’s Maneuver 2. Pelvic Exam 3. Rectal and Rectovaginal Exam

33 Leopold’s Maneuvers LM 1 - Fundal grip LM2 - Umbilical grip
“what fetal pole occupies the fundus?” LM2 - Umbilical grip “on which side is the fetal back?” LM3- Pawlick’s grip “what fetal part lies above the pelvic inlet?” LM4 - Pelvic grip “On which side is the cephalic prominence?”

34 Pelvic Examination Early months- establish the diagnosis of pregnancy or determine the presence or absence of uterine or adnexal pathology 7th month AOG- evaluate and measure obstetric pelvis Pelvic tissues are more relaxed Pelvic cavity empty (uterus become abdominal organ) Ischial spine and sacral promontory are more palpable

35 Pelvic Examination Cytologic screening for cervical CA
Digital exam: consistency, length, dilatation of cervix, presenting part At 9th month AOG- weekly IE to monitor cervix

36 Rectal and Rectovaginal Exam
Evaluate integrity of perineum and competence of rectal sphincter Detect possible presence of rectocoele or extent if present. Rule out pathologic conditions of rectum

37 Routine Obstetric test
CBC: hematologic status, r/o anemia Urinalysis, urine c & s: UTI, renal function Blood group & Rh: blood type, Rh status & risk of isoimmunization Pap smear: to detect cervical dysplasia/ CA Rubella titer HBsAg: detect carrier status, or active satatus Serologic test for Syphilis (RPR, VDRL) OGCT 28 wks

38 Prenatal Instructions
Inform possible problems and discuss management Begin antepartum educational program by means of personal interviews, reading materials and hospital classes. Explain future visits Discuss the economic aspect of pregnancy Give instructions about diet, relaxation and sleep, bowel habits, exercise, bathing, recreation, sexual intercourse, smoking, drug and alcohol ingestion Emphasize danger signals: vaginal bleeding, persistent vomiting, fever and chills, sudden escape of fluid from vagina, abdominal pain, swelling of face, blurring of vision, continuous headache

39 Subsequent PNCU Monthly x 7 months Every 2-3 weeks up to 36th week
Frequency of visits Monthly x 7 months Every 2-3 weeks up to 36th week Once a week until EDC WHO (1994)- 4 visits minimum 16 wks- screen and treat anemia and syphylis 24-28 wks to 32 wks- screen for preeclampsia, multiple gestation, anemia 36 wks- identify fetal lie/presentation

40 Subsequent prenatal care
Maternal evaluation Blood pressure Weight change Symptoms Fundic height Leopold’s maneuver Vaginal examination Fetal evaluation Fetal heart tone Size of fetus Amount of amniotic fluid Presenting part and station Fetal activity Assess well-being of mother and fetus

41 Maternal Evaluation Blood pressure Weight Underweight < 19.9 Kg/m2
Overweight > Kg/m2 BMI Weight gain Under Weight < Kg Normal – 15.9 Kg Overweight Kg Obese > Kg Twin Gestation Kg ACOG- 10 to 12 kg (22 to 27 lb) weight gain

42 Symptoms: Headache, nausea, vomiting, bleeding, dysuria, fluid from vagina
Fundic height Abdominal Exam Speculum Exam Internal Exam Rectovaginal Exam Not done if with history of vaginal bleeding

43 Fetal Evaluation Fetal Heart Rate
Size of fetus, actual and rate of change Amount of Amniotic fluid Presenting part and station (late in pregnancy) Fetal Activity

44 Subsequent Laboratory tests
CBC: repeat at 28-32wks Maternal serum alpha fetoprotein: 16-18wks Elevated levels: neural tube defects, gastroschisis, omphalocoele Low levels: Down syndrome OGCT: 24-28wks

45 Recommended dietary allowance
Levels of intake of energy and essential nutrients considered adequate to maintain heath and provide reasonable levels of reserves in body tissues Calories: 300 kcal/ day (2nd-3rd trim); added maternal tissues and growth of fetus and placenta

46 Protein: 15 gm/ day 1st, 2nd, 3rd; needed for tissue synthesis in the maternal and fetal compartments; Carbohydrates: main source of energy, 150 gms for the 1st trim, 225 at the end of preg Fats: most concentrated energy, gms

47 Vitamin and other supplementation
Iron: 41mg/d 2nd trim: 79mg/Kg/d 3rd trim: 114mg/Kg/d To allow expansion of red cell mass To provide needs of fetus and placenta

48 Minerals Calcium: structural element of bones and teeth, 900mg/d Zinc: 12mg/d, for noral growt, sexual maturation, brain development and fxn, immune fxn Iodine: 125mg/d Iron: 41 mg/d replace bowel losses, allow expnsion of red cell mass, provide for the needs of fetus and placenta, given during the 2nd-3rd trim (deposition of iron in fetal and placenta tissues, increase in red cell mass proceed at a rapid rate Phosphorus: for calcification of bones

49 Folate 350mg/d, megaloblastic anemia
Vitamins Folate 350mg/d, megaloblastic anemia Vitamin A: 475 RE (retinol equivalent)/d; vision, growth, cellular differentiation & proliferation, Vitamin B1 (thiamine): 1.3mg/d, aneuria, antineuritic Vitamin B2 (riboflavin): 1.6mg/d, Vitamin B6 (pyrodoxine): amino acid metabolism and protein synthesis, 1mg Niacin: 21 mg/d Vitamin C: ascorbic acid content of maternal blood decreases, while the fetal plasma values are higher 80mg/d

50 General hygiene Exercise:
aerobics: rhythmic, repetitive activities strenuous enough to demand increased oxygen to the ms, but not so strenuous enough that the demand exceeds the supply. Stimulates the heart, lungs, ms and jt activity, improves circulation, increases ms tone and strength calisthenics: rhythmic light gymnastic movements that tone and develop ms and improve posture, relieves back ache relaxation tech: breathing and concentration ex relax mind and body Pelvic toning: Kegel exercise, tones the ms in the vaginal and perineal rea

51 Bathing Clothing Bowel Habits: constipation, steroid induced suppresion of bowel motility and the compression of the intestines by the enlarging uterus, inc oral fluid intake, fruits, veg, milk of magnesia, stool softening agents

52 Prenatal counseling Smoking: low birth weight infant, premature labor, abruptio pacenta, bleeding and PROM Carbon monoxide and its fxnal inactivation of fetal & maternal hgb Vasoconstrictor effect of nicotine, inducing placental abruption Reduced appetite Decreased maternal plasma volume Alcohol: Fetal alcohol syndrome (undersized, mental deficiency with multiple deformities

53 Common complaints Nausea and vomiting: 4th-12th, hormonal, high levels of hCG Backpain: shifting center of gravity Varicosities: increased venous pressure Hemorrhoids: constipation & increased pressure in the rectal vein caused by obstruction of the venous return by the large uterus Leukorrhea: increased vaginal discharge, increased mucus formation by cervical gland

54 Common complaints Nausea and vomiting Backpain Varicosities
Hemorrhoids Heartburn Leukorrhea
