Prenatal Case Study


Lilly is a 36 year old, G2P1001, MWF (married white female). Her last child, Katie is eighteen months old and still nursing at night. Lilly is a certified day care worker in the toddler room at the local YWCA. She loves the job because it means she can be close to her daughter, who is in the classroom next door. Her husband owns his own landscaping business and enjoys working outdoors. Between them they make a comfortable living. They were just married three years ago and are pleased about this pregnancy since they want several children and feel that they got a late start. Their first daughter was delivered at the birth center.  They were both very pleased with her birth and the care she received.

Today is Lilly’s first prenatal visit to the birth center with this pregnancy. Her husband and daughter accompany her. The nurse finds them in the waiting room going through the center’s picture album. They find their picture from their daughter’s birth and attempt to get Katie’s interest. She briefly looks at it, but is more interested in the toys in the children’s corner. After a brief discussion with Lilly and her husband, Lilly goes with the nurse to one of the exam rooms, while her husband stays with Katie. The nurse begins Lilly’s care by asking for information to establish her due date.
