Health Promotion in the Prenatal and infant Population

M.T. is a nurse practitioner in a busy OBGYN clinic. Her clients include women from various socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. M.T. spends her time educating women about interventions for a healthy pregnancy.

 

She promotes the physical, mental, and spiritual health of her clients throughout the childbearing years. Although she primarily works with the pregnant woman, her ultimate goal is to assist each family to have a healthy pregnancy and birth outcome and lay the foundation for satisfactory parenting and family life.

M.T. participates in community health fairs educating childbearing-age women about healthy lifestyles that can improve chances for a healthy pregnancy. Women should be made aware that certain preconception interventions may improve not only the outcomes of pregnancy but their overall health as well.

1. Design a plan that fits the needs for the health fair that M.T. is participating. List the recommendations and the rationales.

2. Describe the relationship between culture and growth and development. Assess whether all growth and development milestones should be applied to all children regardless of cultural background.

3.Design a teaching plan for parents regarding injury prevention during infancy. In your teaching plan you must include the home of an infant injury proof.
