[Evidence-based Practice Session Presentation] Each year one million pregnant women in the United States are diagnosed with a medical complication resulting in a high-risk pregnancy. Of this number 700,000 are hospitalized on antepartum bed rest and receive intensive maternal and fetal monitoring. The Fetal Care Center performs fetal intervention and fetal surgery for hundreds of patients a year. Secondary to these procedures the high-risk patient is often admitted to the antepartum unit for observation and bed rest. There are numerous adverse effects of bed rest including psychosocial disadvantages such as stress, fear, guilt, anxiety, vulnerability, depression, and loss of control. Several of the psychosocial symptoms of antepartum patients are secondary to knowledge deficit, lack of support, and the lack of continuity of care. In order to address these needs a collaborative nursing program was conceived and implemented by the Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS) from Women's Services and the Newborn Center. Together they initiated a program of assessment, intervention, and evaluation of high-risk antepartum patients from the Fetal Care Center specific to their needs for education, support, and continuity of care.  As part of the multi-disciplinary team the CNS's provide ongoing education to the antepartum patient related to her condition and /or that of the fetus. The CNS's also provides education about pregnancy, labor, birth, medical interventions, postpartum care, newborn care and information related to the NICU experience. The CNS's also provide family-focused antepartum support and continuity of care through chart review and patient/family visitation.
