Health management in the home: a qualitative study of pregnant women and their caregivers.
This qualitative study examined how pregnant women and their caregivers managed health in their home. Participants filled out sociodemographic surveys and had semi-structured interviews about living situations, information needs, and technology use. The authors identified themes about health management, including the physical home, help at home, community, the virtual home, and largest concerns. Caregivers often did not know how to help expectant mothers and needed to learn new roles. Many expectant families did not trust online advice.
