Perinatal mortality and morbidity among babies delivered in water: surveillance study and postal survey. (1/26)

AIM: To compare perinatal morbidity and mortality for babies delivered in water with rates for babies delivered conventionally (not in water). DESIGN: Surveillance study (of all consultant paediatricians) and postal survey (of all NHS maternity units). SETTING: British Isles (surveillance study); England and Wales (postal survey). SUBJECTS: Babies born in the British Isles between April 1994 and March 1996 who died perinatally or were admitted for special care within 48 hours of birth after delivery in water or after labour in water followed by conventional delivery (surveillance study); babies delivered in water in England and Wales in the same period (postal survey). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURESE Number of deliveries in water in the British Isles that resulted in perinatal death or in admission to special care within 48 hours of birth; and proportions (of such deliveries) of all water births in England and Wales. RESULTS: 4032 deliveries (0.6% of all deliveries) in England and Wales occurred in water. Perinatal mortality was 1.2/1000 (95% confidence interval 0.4 to 2.9) live births; 8.4/1000 (5.8 to 11.8) live births were admitted for special care. No deaths were directly attributable to delivery in water, but 2 admissions were for water aspiration. UK reports of mortality and special care admission rates for babies of women considered to be at low risk of complications during delivery who delivered conventionally ranged from 0.8/1000 (0. 2 to 4.2) to 4.6/1000 (0.1 to 25) live births and from 9.2 (1.1 to 33) to 64/1000 (58 to 70) live births respectively. Compared with regional data for low risk, spontaneous, normal vaginal deliveries at term, the relative risk for perinatal mortality associated with delivery in water was 0.9 (99% confidence interval 0.2 to 3.6). CONCLUSIONS: Perinatal mortality is not substantially higher among babies delivered in water than among those born to low risk women who delivered conventionally. The data are compatible with a small increase or decrease in perinatal mortality for babies delivered in water.  (+info)

RESULTS: Major antepartum (adjusted risk difference [RD] = -0.5%; 95% confidence interval [CI] = -2.5, 1.5), intrapartum (adjusted RD = 0.8%; 95% CI = -2.4, 4.0), and neonatal (adjusted RD = -1.8%; 95% CI = -3.8, 0.1) complications were similar, as were neonatal intensive care unit admissions (adjusted RD = -1.3%; 95% CI = -3.8, 1.1). Collaborative care had a greater number of normal spontaneous vaginal deliveries (adjusted RD = 14.9%; 95% CI = 11.5, 18.3) and less use of epidural anesthesia (adjusted RD = -35.7%; 95% CI = -39.5, -31.8). CONCLUSIONS: For low-risk women, both scenarios result in safe outcomes for mothers and babies. However, fewer operative deliveries and medical resources were used in collaborative care.  (+info)

Comparison of midwifery-led and consultant-led maternity care for low risk deliveries in Nepal. (3/26)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate Nepal's first independent midwifery unit, the Patan Hospital Birthing Centre (BC), as a model for training and service provision for low risk deliveries. Specifically, to compare its efficacy with that of an adjacent Consultant-led Maternity Unit (CMU). METHODS: Unpaired comparison of delivery procedures and outcomes at the Patan Hospital, Lalitpur. The sample was 988 women (550 at BC, 438 at CMU). Women judged to be at low risk of complications were enrolled at delivery at each facility. Information was collected by standardized interviews and record review. Main outcome measures were incidence of complications of labour, technical procedures and access to postnatal care and family planning services. RESULTS: Artificial rupture of membranes was more likely to be performed at the BC (RR 1.26, 95% CI 1.10-1.44). Augmentation of labour with oxytocin was less likely to be performed (RR 0.26, 95% CI 0.20-0.33), as was episiotomy (RR 0.64, 95% CI 0.57-0.72). The incidence of oxytocic augmentation was high at the CMU (205/438: 46.9%). The incidence of moderately or thickly meconium-stained liquor was lower at the BC than at the CMU (RR 0.62, 95% CI 0.43-0.91), a finding that was associated with oxytocic augmentation of labour. No significant differences were found for duration or complications of labour, mode of delivery, birth weight, neonatal Apgar score or admission to the special care baby unit. Women delivering at the BC were more likely to attend both postnatal (RR 1.33, 95% CI 1.18-1.51) and family planning clinics (RR 1.85, 95% CI 1.44-2.38). CONCLUSIONS: After appropriate screening, intrapartum care for low risk deliveries is effectively provided by midwives. The Birthing Centre model should be considered throughout the developing world, particularly as a site for training of skilled attendants.  (+info)

Missing prenatal records at a birth center: a communication problem quantified. (4/26)

OBJECTIVES: To quantify the extent of missing prenatal records at the time of patient presentation to a birth center, to document the age of the information in those records, and to discover how quickly missing records were retrieved. METHOD: A survey form was completed over a three-month period for each patient presenting for care. RESULTS: Prenatal records were unavailable 37% of the time at initial presentation. Records were never obtained for 20% of patients. The median age of the prenatal record was 30 days for those records that were immediately available, and the median age was 5 days for those records that were retrieved later. It took a median of 1.4 hours to retrieve a missing re-cord. CONCLUSION: Prenatal records are frequently missing at the point-of-care, and even when records are avail-able or retrieved, the information contained within them is likely to be outdated. Further research is needed to quantify both the clinical and economic impact of this problem.  (+info)

A descriptive study of mastitis in Australian breastfeeding women: incidence and determinants. (5/26)

BACKGROUND: Mastitis is one of the most common problems experienced by women who are breastfeeding. Mastitis is an inflammation of breast tissue, which may or may not result from infection. The aims of this paper are to compare rates of mastitis in primiparous women receiving public hospital care (standard or birth centre) and care in a co-located private hospital, and to use multivariate analysis to explore other factors related to mastitis. METHODS: Data from two studies (a randomised controlled trial [RCT] and a survey) have been combined. The RCT (Attachment to the Breast and Family Attitudes to Breastfeeding, ABFAB) which was designed to test whether breastfeeding education in mid-pregnancy could increase breastfeeding duration recruited public patients at the Royal Women's Hospital at 18-20 weeks gestation. A concurrent survey recruited women planning to give birth in the Family Birth Centre (at 36 weeks gestation) and women in the postnatal wards of Frances Perry House (private hospital). All women were followed up by telephone at 6 months postpartum. Mastitis was defined as at least 2 breast symptoms (pain, redness or lump) AND at least one of fever or flu-like symptoms. RESULTS: The 6 month telephone interview was completed by 1193 women. Breastfeeding rates at 6 months were 77% in Family Birth Centre, 63% in Frances Perry House and 53% in ABFAB. Seventeen percent (n = 206) of women experienced mastitis. Family Birth Centre and Frances Perry House women were more likely to develop mastitis (23% and 24%) than women in ABFAB (15%); adjusted odds ratio (Adj OR) ~1.9. Most episodes occurred in the first 4 weeks postpartum: 53% (194/365). Nipple damage was also associated with mastitis (Adj OR 1.7, 95% CI, 1.14, 2.56). We found no association between breastfeeding duration and mastitis. CONCLUSION: The prevention and improved management of nipple damage could potentially reduce the risk of lactating women developing mastitis.

Breastfeeding-related maternity practices at hospitals and birth centers--United States, 2007. (6/26)

Breastfeeding provides optimal nutrition for infants and is associated with decreased risk for infant and maternal morbidity and mortality; however, only four states (Alaska, Montana, Oregon, and Washington) have met all five Healthy People 2010 targets for breastfeeding. Maternity practices in hospitals and birth centers throughout the intrapartum period, such as ensuring mother-newborn skin-to-skin contact, keeping mother and newborn together, and not giving supplemental feedings to breastfed newborns unless medically indicated, can influence breastfeeding behaviors during a period critical to successful establishment of lactation. In 2007, to characterize maternity practices related to breastfeeding, CDC conducted the first national Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care (mPINC) Survey. This report summarizes results of that survey, which indicated that 1) a substantial proportion of facilities used maternity practices that are not evidence-based and are known to interfere with breastfeeding and 2) states in the southern United States generally had lower mPINC scores, including certain states previously determined to have the lowest 6-month breastfeeding rates. These results highlight the need for U.S. hospitals and birth centers to implement changes in maternity practices that support breastfeeding.  (+info)

Updated 11 February 2015. The maternity services provided at Cossham Birth Centre were found to be outstanding. The services were found to be good in the safe, effective, the well led domains, and outstanding in both the caring and responsive domains. Staff were encouraged to report incidents and there was very clear evidence of learning from incidents, complaints and concerns. Actions were taken and learning was shared both internally and across the wider midwifery service. Risk assessments were undertaken ensuring the suitability of women delivering in a free-standing midwifery unit. The midwife-to-birth ratio was not recorded separately for Cossham Birth Centre, but were included in the overall trust. Trust data showed a midwife-to-birth ratio of 1:33.9, which was below the England average of 1:29. One-to-one care in labour was provided between 93.8% and 100% of the time. Care was delivered in line with guidelines and was subject to ongoing audit. There were specific policies relating to a ...

Scarlet originally planned to give birth at a birth center, but those plans changed close to the end of her pregnancy when she received a gestational thrombocytopenia diagnosis.Still, Janes birth was a very powerful, intense, yet rewarding experience. At 41.5 weeks, Scarlets labor started in the middle of the night and progressed quickly, but stalled after her hospital check-in. Scarlets doctor ended up breaking her water, which jump-started her labor again, and her daughter, Jane, was born soon after. A retained placenta led to a manual extraction and extra blood loss; but, everyone went home healthy the next day. But only 4 days later, Scarlets family was back in the doctors office due to a thyroid problem that showed up on Janes newborn screen.. ...

As a result, many women in hospitals receive interventions, whether or not they need them. Almost all women (87%) who labor in hospitals undergo continuous electronic fetal monitoring, 80% receive intravenous fluids, 47% have labor artificially accelerated with medications, and 43% of first-time moms have labor artificially induced.[7], [8] In addition, 60% of women giving birth in hospitals are not allowed to eat or drink, 76% are restricted to bed, and 92% give birth lying on their backs.[7] There is strong evidence that routine use of these practices, when carried out without medical indications, has few benefits and many potential harms for healthy mothers and babies.[8]-[15].

Staff Writer. Walking around the Miracle of Birth Center at the Minnesota State Fair, its hard not to have a feeling of compassion for the barnyard animals encountered there, especially the newborns..

CNMs had to be present for a birth in the birth center. There was nothing the other midwife could do. Maybe someone stronger would have said, fuck you, get your ass over here and lets do a homebirth, but that wasnt me at the time. I was an hour from home (had gone to my parents during labor because they lived really close to the birth center) and I had not prepared for or entertained the thought of a homebirth. You know why I had to go to the hospital? Because the midwife I trusted and who knew how much a peaceful birth center birth meant to me (she had been my midwife for well women care for 8 years!) decided she wanted to go to a fancy fucking horse show the next day and didnt want her sleep disturbed. She figured Id be up all night in labor since I was a first time mom and she just wanted to go watch fucking horsies (no disrespect to the fucking horsies). My other midwife, who is now one of my best friends and attended my homebirth this past summer, did EVERYTHING she could to keep the ...

As we dive head first into another holiday season, I am thankful for the birth professionals that I work with through the advocacy work we do at Texas Birth Networks, and those who have been a part of my own birth experiences. Here are ten of my favorite reasons to be thankful for midwives this November.. 10. The best choice for low risk birth. Recent studies in the United States and abroad have shown that low risk mothers choosing midwifery care have a lower risk of c-section and fewer interventions like episiotomy and pitocin for labor augmentation.. For women using a midwife through out pregnancy, studies show a lower risk of pre-term birth and miscarriage.. 9. Theres no hurry here. Except in circumstances where it becomes medically necessary to induce or augment labor, midwives are never in a hurry. They arent in a hurry for labor to begin, or for it to be over. They know that women are not all the same and assess the baby and mother based on evidence based criteria, not a number on the ...
With delivery options ranging from home births to hospital births, sometimes its hard to decide where you want to have your little one! But there is one option
Natural birth usually means allowing labor and birth to unfold and progress on their own, without medical interventions.. However, it can really have many different manifestations depending on the circumstances and the desires of the woman. Natural birth can be as straightforward as having a baby vaginally, or it can mean going through labor and birth without any medications, such as pitocin or an epidural. We believe that regardless of what natural birth means to you, it should always include the supportive environment a woman needs to accomplish this incredible work.. For many in the birth community, natural birth means that we trust the woman, her body, and her baby to do the work of birth.. Most healthy, low-risk, pregnant women do not need medical interventions to safely give birth. Instead, the medical interventions that are supposed to help, can lead to complications for the mother and baby. Your body and your baby know what to do. We empower you through childbirth classes and prenatal ...
The Coalition for Improving Maternity Services (CIMS) through the Transparency in Maternity Care Project developed The Birth Survey so families can share information, learn about the choices and birth experiences of others, and view data on hospital and birth center intervention rates and practices. It is also designed to help providers and facilities improve the quality and transparency of their care. At the heart of the project is an on-going online consumer survey that asks women to provide feedback about their pregnancy and birth care specific to the particular doctor, midwife, hospital or birth center that served them. Responses are made available online to other women in their community who are deciding where and with whom to birth. Paired with this experiential data, are official statistics from state departments- of-health listing obstetrical intervention rates at the facility level ...
BETA Healthcare Group (BETA), is the largest insurer of hospital professional liability coverage in California. In 2008, BETA started a training program to improve perinatal safety and reduce obstetrical malpractice claims by providing their members with education on topics such as fetal assessment and monitoring, management of shoulder dystocia and vaginal delivery. To meet the strict requirements established by BETA, all members of a participating hospitals perinatal team must complete rigorous online learnings and utilize common terminology. The annual training portion of the program is part of BETAs Quest for Zero preventable errors initiative. Hospitals that complete the program receive a credit that lowers professional liability coverage costs with the completion of different requirements. For their combined achievement and leadership in OB patient safety, perinatal teams are awarded a trophy for display in their department ...

Background There is demand from women for alternatives to giving birth in a standard hospital setting however access to these services is limited. the UK. Four studies compared costs between homebirth and the hospital setting and the remaining seven focussed on the cost of birth centre care and the hospital setting. Six studies used a cost-effectiveness analysis and the remaining five studies used cost analysis and cost assessment methods. Eight of the 11 studies found a cost saving in the alternative settings. Two found out no difference in the cost of the alternative settings and one found out an increase in birth centre care. Conclusions You will find few studies that compare the cost of birth setting. The variance in the results may be attributable to the cost data collection processes, difference in health variations and systems in which costs were included. A better knowledge of the expense of delivery environment is required to inform plan assistance and manufacturers companies. ...

My HG story with Katrina, my second baby, is not too bad. The pregnancy was a surprise, but not unwelcome. I had an 20 month old at the time and I was nursing her but soon stopped because the nausea was so bad and nursing did not seem to help (in hindsight I think it kept the HG mild). Around 7-8 weeks the nausea turned into vomiting and I started to slowly lose weight. I tried phenergan, reglan, and tigan with no relief. In fact, the side effects were so bad that I was literally pacing the hall out of restlessness. I tried accupuncture, ginger, small frequent meals, carbs, protein, exercise, B6, and who knows what else with little relief. I got IV fluids in the ER and at the birth center. Nothing helped. The vomiting got so bad that I lost about 10 pounds in a week and got down to my lowest weight of 109 (I am 5 feet 9 inches tall). At that point my midwife at the Bethany Birth Center put me in the hospital. There I got IV fluids and Zofran. Once hydrated and with the Zofran on board I felt ...
Hydrating with infused waters while pregnant - A huge part of a healthy pregnancy and lifestyle is about adopting habits that promote ongoing wellness.
The overall aim of this thesis was to describe experiences, strategies and actions in the prehospital phase among patients with a first acute myocardial infarction and to examine long-term trends in survival among patients with coronary heart disease. The thesis consists of two qualitative and two quantitative studies. Interviews were conducted with 21 men and 17 women, experiencing symptoms from a first acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and analyzed with Grounded Theory. Two national prospective cohort studies were performed by using the Swedish Inpatient register (IPR). From this, prognosis for 37,276 adult patients |55 years old with a first AMI and 94,328 patients aged |18 years who underwent a first coronary artery bypass (CABG) 1987-2006 could be estimated. During the decision process, various spectra of bodily changes were described in both men and women, sometimes over an extended period before submission to hospital. Intermittent, vague and insidious symptoms caused confusion about how to act.

FRIDAY, April 21, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Some women really want to give birth at home, but for certain moms-to-be that choice can be risky, a new study suggests. There are women who have issues that can increase risks in pregnancy but are still likely to have good outcomes delivering at home or in a birth center. Those issues include being over 35, being overweight or having already had a vaginal birth after a cesarean delivery, the researchers said.. Not so for women with other risk factors, such as breech presentation (when the baby is coming out feet first), as well as women attempting their first vaginal birth after cesarean, who may fare worse trying to deliver outside a hospital. In fact, the study found the risk of fetal death was eight to 10 times higher for a home delivery with these risk factors.. Families who are considering a home or birth center birth now have data to use in making decisions, said lead researcher Melissa Cheyney, a licensed midwife.. Many pregnant women do not ...
Santa Cruz women fought for midwifery rights beginning in the 1970s, paving the way for todays progress and the Full Moon Birth and Family Wellness Center.
A birthing center or centre is a healthcare facility, staffed by nurse-midwives, midwives and/or obstetricians, for mothers in labor, who may be assisted by doulas and coaches. By attending the laboring mother, the doulas can assist the midwives and make the birth easier. The midwives monitor the labor, and well-being of the mother and fetus during birth. Should additional medical assistance be required the mother can be transferred to a hospital. Some hospitals are now adding birth centers to their facilities as an alternative to the high tech maternity wards commonly found at most hospitals. A birth center presents a more home-like environment than a hospital labor ward, typically with more options during labor: food/drink, music, and the attendance of family and friends if desired. Other characteristics can also include non-institutional furniture such as queen-sized beds, large enough for both mother and father and perhaps birthing tubs or showers for water births. The decor is meant to ...

The amount of times a baby poops in a day can vary greatly. In the early days, your newborn may go every time you feed him or as many as 6 to 10 times per day. Between 2 to 5 bowel movements per day during this time is average. This number will likely decrease several weeks after birth in breastfed babies when moms colostrum, which contains laxative like properties, is eliminated. Some babies will continue to poop multiple times per day while others may only go once per week. If your baby is a less frequent pooper, the content of the diaper should be more abundant for each bowel movement than that of those who poop multiple times per day. The start of solids as with color and consistency, can impact how frequently your baby soils his diaper. Some babies will begin to go more frequently with the introduction of fibrous vegetables and other foods while others may decrease in frequency. This is an important time to be aware of signs of constipation or diarrhea as this may indicate a sensitivity or ...

The partograph (or partogram) is recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO), for monitoring labour wellbeing and progress. Concerns about limitations in the way the partograph is used in the clinical context and the potential impact on its effectiveness have led to this realist systematic review of partograph use. This review aimed to answer two key questions, 1) What is it about the partograph that works (or does not work); for whom does it work; and in what circumstances? 2) What are the essential inputs required for the partograph to work? A comprehensive search strategy encompassed key databases; including papers of varying methodologies. Papers were selected for inclusion if the focus of the paper was the partograph and related to context, mechanism or outcome. Ninety five papers were included for data synthesis. Two authors completed data extraction and synthesis. The evidence synthesis relates the evidence to identified theories of health worker acceptability, health system support,
Carl Jones says, and I concur, No one can tell a mother she is perfectly safe giving birth at home. Whether she is safer at home than in a hospital, however, is another question (113). There is always going to be some risk when giving birth, as in all of life, and women should be carefully screened for any health problems that could be dangerous during labor and delivery. For certain women in rare instances, obstetric care is essential. However, for most women, better, healthier results are seen when mothers chose birth centers or home births. As far as the risk of home birth goes, Our Bodies, Ourselves states, The times when hospital care unexpectedly becomes instantaneously necessary are rare (341). In A Good Birth, A Safe Birth, Diana Korte and Roberta Scaer quote Tew, the research statistician, who says, The danger of home as a place of birth does not lie in its threat to the healthy survival of mothers and babies, but in its threat to the healthy survival of obstetricians and obstetric ...
While breastfeeding is a natural act, it is also a learned behaviour. An extensive body of research has demonstrated that mothers and other caregivers require active support for establishing and sustaining appropriate breastfeeding practices. WHO and UNICEF launched the Baby-friendly Hospital Initiative in 1992, to strengthen maternity practices to support breastfeeding. The foundation for the BFHI are the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding described in Protecting, Promoting and Supporting Breastfeeding: a Joint WHO/UNICEF Statement. The evidence for the effectiveness of the Ten Steps has been summarized in a scientific review document.. The BFHI has been implemented in about 16.000 hospitals in 171 countries and it has contributed to improving the establishment of exclusive breastfeeding world-wide. While improved maternity services help to increase the initiation of exclusive breastfeeding, support throughout the health system is required to help mothers sustain exclusive ...

Clare says that home births are a natural choice when giving birth as you feel safer in a place free from intruders, dark, warm and quiet. A place that harks back to the cave, where for thousands of years our ancestors would have found safety from the world outside. She goes on to explain how as soon as she reached hospital with her first they insisted on performing a vaginal examination (VE) and how this made her feel violated as she was put under pressure to have one. All women who present to a hospital in ? Labour are expected to undergo a VE, if you do not want one then you will not be allowed onto the labour ward. Some birth centers do not perform a regular VE, they use their experience of labour to assess the contractions and watch the womans body language to decide if someone is in labour or not. A VE is very useful information for midwives and lets us plan your labour. However, if you decline then you should not be punished for it. Also lying down in labour is very uncomfortable and ...

Background Most maternal deaths, intrapartum-related stillbirths, and newborn deaths in low income countries are preventable but simple, effective methods for improving safety in institutional births have not been devised. Checklist-based interventions aid management of complex or neglected tasks and have been shown to reduce harm in healthcare. We hypothesized that implementation of the WHO Safe Childbirth Checklist program, a novel childbirth safety program for institutional births incorporating a 29-item checklist, would increase delivery of essential childbirth practices linked with improved maternal and perinatal health outcomes. Methods and Findings A pilot, pre-post-intervention study was conducted in a sub-district level birth center in Karnataka, India between July and December 2010. We prospectively observed health workers that attended to women and newborns during 499 consecutively enrolled birth events and compared these with observed practices during 795 consecutively enrolled birth

When Amanda Scates-Preisinger started planning for the birth of her second child, she wanted the baby born somewhere other than a hospital.. She did not want an institutional setting.. Scates-Preisinger got her wish recently when she delivered a 7-pound, 14-ounce baby boy in the new Birthing Center of Buffalo. It was the centers first delivery.. I had a circle of people around me for support, said Scates-Preisinger, 28, of Buffalo. It was a communal experience.. Across the country, women like Scates-Preisinger are increasingly delivering in birthing centers rather than in hospitals.. More than 30 patients already have registered to give birth at the new birthing center inside Buffalo Womenservices at 2500 Main St.. The Birthing Center of Buffalo opened Feb. 14, becoming only the second free-standing birth center in New York. It also is likely the only one in the United States combined with an abortion clinic.. As of last year, 255 birthing centers were open in 37 states and the District of ...
I am going in a new direction this time. Here in Utah you have several options when having a baby Hospital, Home birth, or they have a birthing center. I am so happy to say I am ditching the hospital! I am so not a fan. I dont like the epidural, I hate not being able to eat, And I Abhor having to stay for 24 hour when all I really want is to get my baby home. Now, dont get me wrong, I am a huge fan of doctors, They save lives!! But I do not believe that giving birth is a medical event that women need to be saved from. I love that my body was made to have babies. (Even if I swear the very selfish side of me is secretly trying to expel it in the first 5 months through my mouth). I also am not a fan of doing it in my house. I have several very sweet friends who love having their babies born into there homes. That route is just not for me. But let me tell you The birth center here in Salt Lake is so great. ( If you feel like seeing it you can see it here) I went and toured yesterday and it was ...

5) Secure your references. Build your support system. Women who labor and deliver alone tend to have less than ideal birth experience. When I say alone, keep in mind that most obstetricians are either taking care of several patients at one time, and most only want to be called to come in when delivery is very near. Most labor and delivery nurses chose that profession because of their sincere desire to serve and comfort women during their most vulnerable time. Unfortunately they also juggle several patients and have to follow procedures and monitors which keep them from the one on one experience with expectant mothers. Midwives can vary depending on if its a hospital, home or birth center delivery. They can be more attentive to the laboring mother but as delivery become closer their role rightfully changes from solely nurturing the mother to making sure that a safe delivery is the end result. Whether its your best friend, your partner, mother or doula, you will want to consider who you will ...

I find myself on-line almost every day…I cant help clicking on long, fascinating birth stories or natural empowering childbirth experiences. I fall into reading wonderful stories from real parents and I keep wondering why more hospitals/OBs dont follow the Mother-Friendly Childbirth Initiative? Although I believe many homebirth and birth centers follows this initiative, I cant find any hospitals or OBs that agree and follow the important steps of MFCI.. This is to provide evidence based care for mothers, babies and families…something feather mama highly believes in. There is even a book to help guide large practices and make it easy, but we still have nothing supporting our community in St. Petersburg Florida.. The Coalition for Improving Maternity Services (CIMS) has coined the phrase and here is their MISSION ...
Breech birth. One speaks of a breech birth when the babys head does not turn to the correct position in the womb before birth and must therefore be delivered by Caesarean section. However, the statistics show that almost 95 percent of all babes will be positioned correctly, with their head coming out first.. There are two ways that you can bring your baby to the world. This is your personal decision. We list the most common birth methods below. If you are unsure, you may want to consult your doctor for their valuable advice. Your questions will all be answered from the information offered by hospitals and birth centres.. Most young mothers would opt for natural birth or the so-called spontaneous delivery. This process is proceed without any medicine given for the induction of labour, without any aids used for obstetric operations such as forceps, ventouse (vacuum extractor) or by caesarean. Of course, epidurals are given during natural birth to block the pain from emerging from the spinal cord ...

6. Maternal intervention rates were much higher in births planned for OUs with lower normal births and spontaneous vertex deliveries.. Based on these findings, the RCOG advocates that first-time (nulliparous) mothers should be advised of the benefits of delivering in OUs or alongside midwifery units (AMU) unless geography prohibits. Subsequent deliveries in low-risk multiparous women can be conducted in any of the four locations (dependent upon geography, family choice and health economic considerations). We have identified the following areas requiring more research: Further work is needed to determine the cause of any adverse outcomes for mother. The intervention rate in OUs, even for this low-risk pregnancy group was high. One can only speculate on the causes of these differences (i.e. epidural analgesia uptake rates, differing protocols for the management of progress in labour and monitoring of the baby and differing experience of the healthcare professionals and the opportunity for ...

I am the mother of four and a birth doula. I gave birth to my two youngest children at home attended by an excellent CPM. I find what you have written to be thought provoking mostly because as an aspiring midwife, I think about the issues surrounding the education of midwives endlessly. It was a struggle to decide which path to take. On the one hand, CPM training through a MEAC accreditted school would be the most APPEALING to me as a woman who wishes to attend low risk mothers at home, but complications in low risk women can and do happen and often without much warning. Knowing this fact and realizing that losing a baby or mother as a result of my lack of knowledge or experience is just not an option. This is why I have decided to earn my Bachelors degree in nursing and then go through a CNM graduate program. I have made this decision, not because I feel ALL CPMs are undereducated, but because I believe a minority of them do not appreciate the weight of attending births at home and dont ...
