(Refer to article by Ramona Mercer)
What is this mother’s stage of growth and
development which you identified from your
assessment data? (include data to support your
conclusions): The patient is at the second stage “acquaintance
with and increasing attachment to the
infant, learning how to care for the infant and physical
restoration” (Mercer, 2005, p. 649) as evidenced by being
one day postpartum. Some data that supports she is one
day postpartum is that her fundus is 1 fb above her
umbilicus, her lochia is moderate/rubra and she is
Identify and define her expected stage of growth and
development? This mother is where I would expect her to be.
Which is in the second stage, as mentioned above.
The second stage is a time of recovery and bonding with the neonate. A
woman at her first postpartum day enters
the second stage regardless of mental readiness because
she has undergone the physical process of labor and a
newborn has been brought into the world.
Has this mother successfully accomplished the
developmental tasks of pregnancy (include assessment

data)? At this stage she has accomplished the

developmental tasks of pregnancy as demonstrated by her
health seeking behaviors. She reports 7 prenatal checkups,

What does this mother think about her present

situation/circumstance? She seems to be taking it all in still.
She is very concerned about her post C-section pain and
Comments “ I can’t believe I have four kids now”.

How does this mother anticipate changes r/t herself

She anticipates being busier.
Changes R/T family dynamics: S.M. will continue to stay
at home and care for the children. However, she will have
one more child to care for and her husband will have one
more person to provide for.
What questions does this mother have at this time?
Pt denies having questions at this time.
N3731 Course Packet 7

What could you do to facilitate her growth and
development? I need to build a rapport with S.M. so
that I can identify her specific needs. As a mother of
four she already knows a great deal; however, there is
always teaching that can be done. This is her first C-
section so post-operative teaching as it pertains to a
C-section may help S.M. grow.
What are the educational needs for this mother to
care for herself, her newborn, and family?
So far S.M. needs to be educated on Toradol as it is
a part of her pain management and self-care. Additionally,
she needs to be reeducated on breast-feeding techniques
in order to care for her newborn. She may also require
education on building a larger support system so that she
does not become overwhelmed with the job of being
a homemaker.
