Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following is not necessarily true of contractions?

    • A.

      The abdomen gets hard and then soft.

    • B.

      They cause the cervix to open.

    • C.

      They help move the baby.

    • D.

      They mean labor has started.

    Correct Answer
    D. They mean labor has started.
    Explanation
    Contractions are a normal part of the labor process, but they do not necessarily mean that labor has started. Contractions are rhythmic tightening and relaxing of the uterine muscles, which can cause the abdomen to become hard and then soft. They play a crucial role in helping to open the cervix and move the baby down the birth canal. However, contractions can occur during the early stages of labor, known as prodromal labor, which may not progress into active labor. Therefore, the statement that contractions mean labor has started is not necessarily true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which of the following statements is true of anesthesia?

    • A.

      Local anesthesia is often used when repairing an episiotomy

    • B.

      Regional anesthesia can lengthen labor and make it harder to push

    • C.

      Because it poses more risks to mother and baby, general anesthesia is reserved for emergency cesarean deliveries

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the statements provided are true of anesthesia. Local anesthesia is commonly used during the repair of an episiotomy. Regional anesthesia can prolong labor and make pushing more difficult. General anesthesia is typically reserved for emergency cesarean deliveries due to the higher risks it poses to both the mother and the baby.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    During which stage of labor is pushing done?

    • A.

      Stage one

    • B.

      Stage two

    • C.

      Stage three

    • D.

      Transition

    Correct Answer
    B. Stage two
    Explanation
    During stage two of labor, pushing is done. This stage begins when the cervix is fully dilated and ends with the birth of the baby. It is characterized by strong contractions and the mother actively pushing to help the baby move through the birth canal. This stage is crucial for the delivery of the baby and typically lasts until the baby is born.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The delivery of the afterbirth usually takes _________ minutes.

    • A.

      2 to 3

    • B.

      10 to 30

    • C.

      30 to 45

    • D.

      45 to 60

    Correct Answer
    B. 10 to 30
    Explanation
    The delivery of the afterbirth usually takes 10 to 30 minutes. After childbirth, the placenta and any remaining fetal membranes need to be expelled from the uterus. This process, known as the delivery of the afterbirth or placental expulsion, typically occurs within the first 30 minutes after the baby is born. It is important for the healthcare provider to closely monitor this process to ensure that it is complete and there are no complications.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Cesarean delivery may be done for all of the following reasons except the __________.

    • A.

      Baby is in a breech position

    • B.

      Mother has herpes

    • C.

      Mother wants to avoid the pain of labor

    • D.

      Placenta is blocking the cervix

    Correct Answer
    C. Mother wants to avoid the pain of labor
    Explanation
    Cesarean delivery may be done for various medical reasons such as when the baby is in a breech position, the mother has herpes, or the placenta is blocking the cervix. However, the mother's desire to avoid the pain of labor is not a medical indication for a cesarean delivery. The decision for a cesarean delivery is typically based on the health and safety of both the mother and the baby, rather than personal preferences or discomfort.

  • 9. 

    Another name for pre-labor

    • A.

      Braxton Hicks

    • B.

      True Labor

    • C.

      Active Labor

    • D.

      Episiotomy

    Correct Answer
    A. Braxton Hicks
    Explanation
    Braxton Hicks is another name for pre-labor contractions. These contractions are usually irregular and do not indicate the start of true labor. They are often described as practice contractions, preparing the uterus for labor. True labor refers to the actual onset of labor, characterized by regular contractions that increase in intensity and frequency. Active labor is the stage of labor when the cervix is dilating and the contractions are strong and regular. Episiotomy, on the other hand, is a surgical incision made to widen the vaginal opening during childbirth, which is not related to pre-labor contractions.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which stage is considered the opening of the cervix?

    • A.

      Stage 2

    • B.

      Stage 4

    • C.

      Stage 3

    • D.

      Stage 1

    Correct Answer
    D. Stage 1
    Explanation
    Stage 1 is considered the opening of the cervix. This stage, also known as the early labor stage, is characterized by regular contractions that help the cervix to efface (thin out) and dilate (open up). During this stage, the cervix gradually opens to allow the baby to pass through the birth canal. This is the initial stage of labor and marks the beginning of the active phase of childbirth.

    Rate this question:

  • 11.

    • C.

      6 to 8

    • D.

      10 to 12

    Correct Answer
    B. 8 to 10
    Explanation
    During transition, the dilation is from 8 centimeters to 10 centimeters.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Effacement means _____________.

    • A.

      Opening of the cervix

    • B.

      Widening of the cervix

    • C.

      Thinning of the cervix

    • D.

      Size of the cervix

    Correct Answer
    C. Thinning of the cervix
    Explanation
    Effacement refers to the process of thinning out or shortening of the cervix during labor and childbirth. As the cervix thins, it becomes more effaced, allowing the baby to pass through the birth canal. This is an important step in the progression of labor and is measured as a percentage, with 100% effacement indicating that the cervix is completely thinned out.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    All of the following are true of an epidural except

    • A.

      You can move around

    • B.

      Numbness from the waist down

    • C.

      You will be catheterized

    • D.

      Injection in your spine

    Correct Answer
    A. You can move around
    Explanation
    An epidural is a type of anesthesia that is commonly used during childbirth or certain surgical procedures. It involves the injection of medication into the space around the spinal cord, which helps to numb the lower half of the body. While numbness from the waist down is a common effect of an epidural, it does not restrict your ability to move around. Unlike other forms of anesthesia that may cause complete immobility, an epidural allows you to remain mobile and change positions during labor or recovery. This mobility can be beneficial for both comfort and facilitating the progress of labor.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Which of the following is not an example of a breathing technique?

    • A.

      Cleansing breath

    • B.

      4-2

    • C.

      3-1

    • D.

      Hee-hee-who

    Correct Answer
    B. 4-2
    Explanation
    The options given are different combinations of numbers and sounds. The first option, "Cleansing breath," is a known breathing technique used to relax and release tension. The second option, "4-2," does not represent any specific breathing technique. The third option, "3-1," also does not correspond to any recognized breathing technique. The last option, "hee-hee-who," is a variation of the "hee-hee-hoo" breathing technique commonly used in childbirth classes. Therefore, the correct answer is 4-2, as it does not represent a breathing technique.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    How many chromosomes each does a male and female contribute to their baby?

    Correct Answer
    23
    twenty three
    Explanation
    A baby receives 23 chromosomes from each parent, resulting in a total of 46 chromosomes. The father contributes 23 chromosomes through his sperm, while the mother contributes 23 chromosomes through her egg. These chromosomes contain the genetic information that determines various traits and characteristics of the baby.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    This person determines the gender of the baby.

    Correct Answer
    male
    father
    Explanation
    The given answer "male, father" is correct because traditionally, the father is the one who determines the gender of the baby. The father's sperm carries either an X or a Y chromosome, and it is the presence of the Y chromosome that determines the baby's gender. If the sperm carries an X chromosome, the baby will be female, and if it carries a Y chromosome, the baby will be male. Therefore, the father's gender and the sperm he contributes play a crucial role in determining the gender of the baby.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Parts of cells that carry the traits that parents pass on to their children?

    Correct Answer
    chromosomes
    Explanation
    Chromosomes are the parts of cells that carry the traits that parents pass on to their children. They contain the genetic material, DNA, which carries the instructions for the development and functioning of the organism. During reproduction, chromosomes are passed from the parents to their offspring, ensuring the inheritance of traits. Therefore, chromosomes play a crucial role in the transmission of genetic information and the continuity of species.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    During fertilization, these chromosomes combine in one cell called a ?

    Correct Answer
    zygote
    Explanation
    During fertilization, the sperm and egg cells combine to form a single cell called a zygote. The zygote contains the complete set of chromosomes, half from the mother and half from the father. This cell then undergoes cell division and develops into an embryo, eventually forming a new individual. The term "zygote" is commonly used to describe this initial stage of development after fertilization.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    How many trimesters are there in a pregnancy?

    Correct Answer
    three
    3
    Explanation
    A pregnancy is divided into three trimesters. Each trimester represents a period of approximately three months, making a total of nine months for the entire pregnancy. The first trimester starts from conception and lasts until the end of the 12th week. The second trimester begins from the 13th week and ends at the 28th week. Finally, the third trimester starts from the 29th week and continues until the birth of the baby. Therefore, the correct answer is three.

    • D.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Second
    Explanation
    During the second trimester, the mother is generally considered to be the most comfortable. This is because many of the early pregnancy symptoms, such as morning sickness and fatigue, have usually subsided by this time. Additionally, the mother's body has adjusted to the pregnancy, and she may have more energy and feel less physically uncomfortable. The second trimester is often referred to as the "honeymoon phase" of pregnancy, as many women experience a boost in their overall well-being during this time.

      Stretch marks

    Correct Answer
    C. Mask of pregnancy
    Explanation
    Mask of pregnancy, also known as melasma or chloasma, refers to the darkening of the skin during pregnancy. This condition is caused by hormonal changes that stimulate the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color. It commonly appears as patches of darkened skin on the face, particularly on the forehead, cheeks, and upper lip. The darkening usually fades after pregnancy but can persist in some cases. This phenomenon is unrelated to low iron levels, discoloration, or stretch marks, which are other common changes that can occur during pregnancy.

    Correct Answer
    B. Stretch marks
    Explanation
    Stretch marks occur when the tissue beneath the skin tears as it stretches. This can happen during periods of rapid growth or weight gain, such as during pregnancy or during puberty. The tears in the tissue cause the appearance of thin, reddish or purplish lines on the skin, which eventually fade to a lighter color. Stretch marks are a common occurrence and can affect both men and women. They are not harmful or painful, but some people may feel self-conscious about their appearance. Various treatments and creams are available to help reduce the visibility of stretch marks.

      Milli

    • D.

      Villi

    Correct Answer
    D. Villi
    Explanation
    Villi are fingerlike projections in the placenta that increase the surface area for nutrient and gas exchange between the mother and fetus. They are found in both the veins and arteries of the placenta. These villi help in the transfer of oxygen and nutrients from the mother's blood to the fetus, and the removal of waste products from the fetus. The increased surface area provided by the villi allows for efficient exchange and ensures the proper development and nourishment of the growing fetus.

      Fetus

    • C.

      Embryo

    • D.

      Cell

    Correct Answer
    A. Zygote
    Explanation
    A fertilized egg is called a zygote. This is the first stage of development after fertilization, where the egg and sperm combine to form a single cell. The zygote then undergoes cell division and differentiation to develop into an embryo and later a fetus. Therefore, zygote is the correct answer as it accurately represents the initial stage of development after fertilization.

    • D.

      1 cup

    Correct Answer
    C. 1 liter
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 1 liter. The amniotic sac is a fluid-filled membrane that surrounds and protects the developing fetus during pregnancy. It contains amniotic fluid, which is essential for the baby's growth and development. The average volume of amniotic fluid is around 800-1000 milliliters, which is approximately equal to 1 liter. This fluid provides cushioning for the baby, helps regulate their body temperature, and allows for movement and development of their muscles and limbs.

    When is the amniotic sac removed from the body

    • A.

      Before birth

    • B.

      After birth

    • C.

      During birth

      During labor

    Correct Answer
    B. After birth
    Explanation
    The amniotic sac is a protective membrane that surrounds the fetus during pregnancy. It contains amniotic fluid that cushions and protects the baby. The amniotic sac is typically not removed from the body until after the baby is born. During childbirth, the sac may rupture naturally, leading to the release of the amniotic fluid. However, the sac itself is usually expelled from the body after the baby is delivered. Therefore, the correct answer is "after birth".

    Correct Answer
    B. Amnioscentesis
    Explanation
    Amnioscentesis is a test that is performed using the amniotic fluid. This procedure involves the insertion of a needle into the amniotic sac to collect a small sample of the fluid. The amniotic fluid contains cells and substances that can provide important information about the health and development of the fetus. It can be used to determine the baby's sex, detect genetic disorders, assess lung development, and check for certain infections. Amnioscentesis is typically performed during the second trimester of pregnancy and is often recommended for women who are at higher risk of having a baby with certain conditions.
