A 7 GBS Unknown Negative Rubella Immune 7 IU/mL or less (Negative) Hepatitis Negative Negative HIV Positive. Negative reactive test could indicate a higher risk of preterm labor or miscarriage for mother and/or IUGR, preterm birth, stillbirth, or congenital infections for the baby. Test for the presence of Group B streptococcal bacteria. A positive test could mean baby has the possibilities of being infected. Babies are given antibiotics and monitored for 48 hours after delivery. . Antibody titer indicates immunity to rubella, and a negative antibody titer means the mother is not immune. If mother is infected with rubella during first trimester, baby could be born with congenital infection. Tests for presence of the Hepatitis A.B and C surface antigen which indicates artificial immunity. Lack of immunity means the mother is more vulnerable to contracting the virus which could be transmitted to the baby during birth. Tests for the presence of HIV antibodies. Presence of HIV 8 Chlamydia negative negative Gonorrhea Negative Negative WBC 13000 cells/dL 4500 – 15,000 cells/dL antibodies in the mother’s blood indicate HIV infection that can be transmitted to the baby if adherence to ART is not met. Mothers with HIV always have a caesarean section to prevent exposure to maternal blood. This test for the presence of chlamydia bacteria. A positive test would indicate that mother is infected with chlamydia which can cause neonatal conjunctivitis in the newborn as the baby passes through the birth canal. Test for the presence of gonorrhea bacteria. A positive test would indicate that mother is infected with gonorrhea which can cause neonatal conjunctivitis in the newborn as it passes through the birth canal. Could also mean preterm birth or IUGR for the baby. Indicates ability to fight infection. A WBC that is too high indicates that mother is currently fighting an infection, one that could be passed to the baby. A count that is too low can means the mother is 9 Hemoglobin 9.4 g/dL 11.1 – 15.9 g/dL Hematocrit 28.8 % 34.0– 46.6% Platelet 136 x 103 cells/dL 150-379 x 103 cells/dL vulnerable to infections that could also be transmitted to the baby. Indicates O2 carrying capacity. A low value could indicate that mother is hypoxic or hypoxemic. This would mean low oxygenation for the baby as well which will put the baby in distress. Indicates proportion of RBCs to blood volume. Is normally low during pregnancy due to physiological anemia. A low value indicates that mother is hypoxemic or hypoxic which can cause intrauterine growth restriction and distress to the baby during labor Indicates clotting ability. Bowie State University Nursing Care Plan Nursing Care Plan. A higher than normal platelet count means that the mother is more prone to forming thrombi, which could harm the baby if mother develops a PE or if clot affects placental perfusion.
