b.Inpatient psychiatric management of the mother, and placement of the infant in foster care
c.out pt rx, mother and child seperated
d.out pt rx mother and child in same room






Asnwer is A.




agree with A


(a) because the mom can feed the baby and take care of him under surveilance. with mommy as an inpatient she will have medical and (hopefully) improve the problem. meanwhile baby-mommy realtionship isnĀ“t broken-up
