Discomforts in Pregnancy (Nursing)

by Jacquelyn McMillian-Bohler, PhD, CNM

Discomforts experienced by pregnant patients are due to the physiological changes that occur starting at the onset of pregnancy. Hormones are the driving forces of these changes, and every patient experiences them differently.

In this course, you will learn about common discomforts in pregnancy, such as nausea and vomiting, constipation and hemorrhoids, gingivitis, epistaxis, and nasal congestion. We’ll also discuss supine hypotension and Braxton-Hicks contractions, among other topics.
