Maternal mortality and morbidity postpartum are public health issues in the United States, with some medical complications having doubled and overall mortality postpartum increased by 66% since the late 1990s. Postpartum major and minor depression has increased to a point prevalence of 13%. The historical emphasis on prenatal care, labor and delivery in the medical community has deemphasized the importance of the postpartum period to maternal health outcomes.


A Tool to Support Postpartum Women

The nursing program at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, NH, in collaboration with Catholic Medical Center, deployed Babyscripts to support nursing interventions for postpartum women who are at risk for postpartum complications, including postpartum depression.  Through Babyscripts, nurses connected to the hospital provided continuity of care and assisted mothers in determining when and from whom medical attention is warranted, and provided education and support for self-care, newborn care and breastfeeding.
