Abstract

Objective: To determine the scope of home‐care services for pregnant women by addressing types of agencies, nursing personnel, and problems encountered. Design: Descriptive study with survey questionnaire. Setting: A sample of urban and rural settings throughout Minnesota. Participants: Nine private and 38 public agencies providing antepartum home‐care services. Main outcome: Data described clients, agencies, personnel, and services. Results: Differences were reflected in the nursing skills and interventions used with high‐risk pregnant women. Public agencies identified teenage pregnancy as the most frequent antepartum problem, while private agencies identified preterm labor. Conclusion: Results suggest a need to examine the scope of antepartum home‐care services.
