When Angie was admitted you would have performed Leopold's maneuvers...why?
1. To assess fetal heart rate
2. To assess fetal presentation

If Angie's membranes had not ruptured at home but instead had ruptured after you had done your SVE what would have been your first action?
1. Assess the contraction pattern
2. Note the color , amount and odor of the amniotic fluid
3. Prepare the client for immenent delivery
4. Change the clien'ts position
If Angie had been at a -4 station instead of 0 when her membranes had ruptured you would first:

Here's Melody's strip. How does the baby look?
How are you going to help Melody be comfortable and progress in labor?
In report, Georgia learns that at 1830, Angie’s cervix was dilated to 6 cm and 80% effaced, the presenting part is at a zero station. The baby’s position is ROA. Spontaneous rupture of membranes occurred at home 6 hours ago, fluid was clear. Angie is having strong contractions every 2 minutes, lasting 60 seconds. Fetal heart tones are 140-150 with good variability. Vital signs: HR-90, RR-20, Temp-99.8, BP-122/72. She has an IV in her right arm that is saline locked and has received one dose of Ampicillin two hours ago.
Angie’s husband Steve is with her in labor, they have taken refresher childbirth preparation classes and Steve was also present for the vaginal delivery of their son Charlie who was born 2 years ago. They are using their breathing techniques and managing the contractions well. Angie hopes to have a natural childbirth without the use of drugs, which she also accomplished with her first delivery. She did relate that her contractions seem stronger this time and she may be rethinking that decision. The Certified Nurse Midwife that will be attending the birth is not currently on the unit. As the day shift RN leaves for home, Georgia plans her evening and thinks: “I anticipate a routine delivery within the next few hours.”
