ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
This project would not be made possible without the help and guidance of our Almighty
Father, who conveyed our group adequate knowledge, sufficient vigor and bravery to face
innovative and peculiar defy during the entire course of this project. Our never-ending
thanks to Almighty Father the most High for the love and care he showered upon us.
Our genuine gratitude to our beloved parents for always supporting us physically,
mentally, emotionally and financially in regards to this venture. Warmth thanks for
entrusting to us their confidence and understanding not only in times of need but in
everyday of our lives. They used to complain that we are getting too sovereign and
matured; however we live in the ideology that letting go of their children is the hardest
part of being a parent. Though it is not easy for us to acknowledge the fact that we are
getting old bit by bit, we have to separate from them in order to understand the true
essence of being a human, and still our love for them remains the same. To our dear
parents, rest guaranteed that what we are doing right now will serve as a stepping stone
towards a philosophical future and sagacious life, and that is being a nurse.
INTRODUCTION
Pregnancy is an exciting time in any parent's life. It's a time of change, growth, discovery
and a lot of questions. One of the most important factors of having a healthy baby is the
mother’s health especially during the 9 months where the child’s development has already
started. The mother’s nutrition, activity etc. greatly affect the developing fetus inside her
womb such that any move could put the child at risk resulting to abnormalities, poor
health or even death to the precious being anytime or even during pregnancy if mother’s
health is being taken for granted.
Complications may occur at any time during pregnancy and can result from pre-existing
maternal medical problems or from the pregnancy itself. Early and consistent prenatal
care results in improved fetal and maternal outcomes, regardless of complications that
may occur. One of these complications, placenta previa, is a condition in which the
placenta is implanted close to or covers the cervical os. Normally, the placenta implants

in the upper uterine segment, but in the case of placenta previa, the placenta implants in
the lower part of the uterus.
Placenta previa is experienced in 1 out of 200 pregnancies around the world. Maternal
morbidity rate is approximately 5% and mortality rate is less than 1%. In the Philippines
, it reached to 6,341 out of the 86,241,697 population estimate used in the year 2004. The
mortality rate of placenta previa in the
country is 0.17% according to DOH.
During our duty in the Ob ward at Ospital Ning Angeles (ONA) , we decided to take the
case of Mrs. Nicole Kidman in which she was diagnosed with placenta previa totalis
because we would like to have a deeper understanding about this condition so that we
could render the care the patient needed to arrive with a good prognosis. Management
should therefore always be based on appropriate clinical judgment. We would like to
apply all the things that we’ve learned through our lectures for the benefit of our patient
and to enhance our skills as well.
We hope that this case study will enable us, student nurses to better understanding about
the disease process and that we will be more sensitive in attending to our patient’s need.
For the community, we hope that this will increase the level of awareness among the
members of the community so that it could help in the prevention of further pregnancy
complications.
