CALDAS, Denise Baldança et al. Establishing psychological intervention in high-risk prenatal, outpatient clinic. Psicol. hosp. (São Paulo) [online]. 2013, vol.11, n.1, pp. 66-87. ISSN 2175-3547.

Models of prenatal care have become increasingly humanized and qualified, in accordance with public health policies. Changes have also had an impact on the model of prenatal care in high-risk pregnancies, which have higher chances of an unfavorable outcome for mother and/or baby/fetus in the organic, emotional and relational areas. The goal of this article is to report on the procedures performed in order to establish psychological counseling in a high-risk, prenatal outpatient clinic in a general hospital; and to present the data collected on the population served during the first two months. In this context, psychological intervention can be along certain lines: High-risk pregnancy, psychodynamics of pregnancy, mother-baby bonding and social/family-support. Forty-five pregnant women were provided with psychological counseling, 61 patients overall. We can conclude that the implementation of the psychological counseling, with an interdisciplinary perspective, is a challenging and dynamic task, and its continuity involves constant reevaluations.
