Scenario: you are a nurse undertaking home visit to meet with Elizabeth, Craig, and Zoë. This is their first home visit from your services. During your discussions
with the family, you obtain the following information.
Elizabeth is a 21 year old female. She is living with her partner, Craig, 22 year old. They have been in a relationship for 18 months, living together for the past
four months. They are currently renting accommodation. The rental company made contract with Elizabeth several days ago, stating that the house owners may terminate
their rental agreement in two months as they want to return to live there themselves. Elizabeth and Craig have a two week old baby, Zoe. This is their first baby.
Elizabeth and baby Zoe arrived home one week ago. They were both in hospital for seven days after delivery, as Elizabeth had high blood pressure and baby Zoe was
having some breathing difficulties.
Elizabeth is currently on maternity leave form her full time administrator job. She was off work for one month prior to the baby’s birth due to her increasing blood
pressure. She reports she is finding the isolation difficult while off maternity leave from work. Craig got a new truck driving job during the last month of her
pregnancy which has contributed to Elizabeth’s feelings of isolation. While his income is much improved, it does mean Craig is away from home overnight at least two
nights every week. Prior to her pregnancy, Craig and Elizabeth’s had a very active social life. They would visit the pub with friends most weekends and had travelled
internationally for two holidays. Elizabeth was very anxious during her pregnancy. She has been acutely aware that her own mother experienced anxiety and depression
during her first pregnancy, which requires anti-depressant medications and mental health in-patient care after suicidal behaviours. Her mum continued to experience
depression for 12 months after the birth of her first baby. Elizabeth is worried that this may happen to her. Elizabeth has felt low in mood and increasingly anxious
since she was 7 months pregnant. She feels she has not been able to bond with the Zoe since she was born. She was breast feeding in hospital, but since coming home
Elizabeth reports ‘it hasn’t been a success’. Elizabeth didn’t like feeling the baby was so attached to her. Since returning home from hospital, Elizabeth has started
to bottle feed the baby. Craig is helping to feed the baby during the baby during the day when he is not at work while Elizabeth does most of the night feeds.
Since arriving home from the hospital, Elizabeth has become increasingly low in mood; lacking in energy and expressing feelings of hopelessness for the future. She
feels like a failure as she was initially very keen to breast feed Zoe. Feeding times reinforce her feelings of failure. During the past 48 hours, she has expressed a
wish to die and to leave Zoe in the care of others who can look after her better. Elizabeth informed you that she walked to the yesterday to buy more baby milk
formula. She also brought a packet of painkillers, with the intention to overdose.
