Soaring cost and diminished insurance coverage have played a major role in the changes of nursing care received during the labor, delivery, and postpartum process. Thus especially decreasing the amount of time allowed for stay in the hospital during this process. Using a qualitative questionnaire, perceptions of nursing care were gathered, analyzed, and compared from participants. The aims of this focused study were to (1) describe and evaluate nursing care received during labor, delivery and postpartum process, and (2) to identify concerns of select participants about maternal care received during this process. Data were collected through formal, semi-structured interviews using a qualitative phenomenological approach to capture the lived experiences of 30 participants. Issues that emerged as concerns included; pain management, cost, educational needs, emotional concerns and empathy, and changes in the nursing interventions over time. Participants were concerned about pain management especially benefits and risks; cost of care and insurance; educational needs expectations and clarifications; emotional concerns and empathy in regards to influence on perceptions; and changes in nursing interventions over time and need for reasoning or explanations of these changes. Additionally, the study describes themes that enhanced or inhibited the participant’s understanding of current maternal nursing care. The themes that emerged from the data were consistent with articles from Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic, and Neonatal Nursing. The information obtained in this study will be used to educate and enhance the perceptions of current nursing practice of maternal nursing.
