Answer

Full documentation of the case is imperative, and a careful explanation of events and interventions must be given to the patient and family. Caregivers must be available and approachable for questions. Implications and recommendations for future pregnancies may be discussed during the postoperative stay and reinforced at the postdischarge visit.
