When interviewing a woman at her first prenatal visit, the
nurse asks about her feelings. The woman replies, Im frightened and confused.
I dont know whether I want to be pregnant or not. Being pregnant means
changing our whole life, and now having somebody to care for all the time. Im
not sure I would be a good mother. Plus Im a bit afraid of all the changes
that would happen to my body. Is this normal? Am I okay?
a. How should the nurse answer this question?
b. What specific information is needed to support the client
during this pregnancy?
