Kim is a 40 year old married client, who delivered a healthy girl at 40 weeks gestation. She has a 10 year old son, an 8 year old son, and a 4 year old daughter at home. You are the post-partum nurse assigned to her. While doing your morning nursing assessment Kim was noted to be tearful and stated that she is feeling overwhelmed and is feeling unsure of herself about how to take care of her new baby, although she has 3 other children. What implications and priorities for nursing care can be drawn at this time?  Is there sufficient evidence to support counseling women with psychosocial concerns in the immediate postpartum period?  What is the main risk factor for Kim?  Based on the above information what information would you include in a teaching plan for her?  What other professional roles should you contact for her care?
