Home delivery of heat-stable vaccines in Indonesia: outreach immunization with a prefilled, single-use injection device. (1/480)

Extending immunization coverage to underserved populations will require innovative immunization strategies. This study evaluated one such strategy: the use of a prefilled, single-use injection device for outreach immunization by village midwives. The device, UniJect, is designed to prevent refilling or reuse. Stored at ambient temperatures for up to 1 month in midwives' homes, vaccine-filled UniJect devices were immediately available for outreach. Between July 1995 and April 1996, 110 midwives on the Indonesia islands of Lombok and Bali visited the homes of newborn infants to deliver hepatitis B vaccine to the infants and tetanus toxoid to their mothers. Observations and interviews showed that the midwives used the device properly and safely to administer approximately 10,000 sterile injections in home settings. There were no problems with excessive heat exposure during the storage or delivery of vaccine. Injection recipients and midwives expressed a strong preference for the UniJect device over a standard syringe. Use of the prefilled device outside the cold chain simplified the logistics and facilitated the speed and efficiency of home visits, while the single-dose format minimized vaccine wastage.  (+info)

Lack of knowledge in health professionals: a barrier to providing information to patients? (3/480)

OBJECTIVE: To assess obstetricians' and midwives' knowledge of routine prenatal screening tests for fetal abnormality and factors associated with such knowledge. DESIGN: Questionnaire assessment of antenatal clinic staff. SETTING: Six hospitals within the United Kingdom (four district general hospitals in London, one district general hospital in Wales, and one teaching hospital in Wales), offering routine prenatal screening tests. SUBJECTS: 29 obstetricians and 97 midwives were invited to participate, of whom 21 and 70 respectively responded to the questionnaire. MAIN MEASURES: Knowledge of prenatal tests, according to 19 item multiple choice questionnaire, reluctance to disclose uncertainty, and clinical experience. RESULTS: The overall response rate was 72% (91/126). In all, 43% of midwives and 14% of obstetricians obtained correct responses on fewer than half the items. Reluctance to disclose uncertainty to patients was associated in obstetricians with having less knowledge about prenatal testing (r = -0.50; p < 0.025, Pearson product moment correlation) and in midwives with more clinical experience (r = 0.43; p < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Lack of knowledge and greater clinical experience seem to be important barriers to providing patients with information about prenatal screening tests.  (+info)

Factors affecting home delivery in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. (4/480)

This nested case-control study compares the characteristics of mothers having home or institutional deliveries in Kathmandu, Nepal, and explores the reasons given by mothers for a home delivery. The delivery patterns of mothers were identified in a cross-sectional survey of two communities: an urban area of central Kathmandu (Kalimati) and a peri-urban area (Kirtipur and Panga) five kilometres from the city centre. 357 pregnant women were identified from a survey of 6130 households: 183 from 3663 households in Kirtipur and Panga, 174 from 2467 households in Kalimati. Methods involved a structured baseline household questionnaire and detailed follow-up of identified pregnant women with structured and semi-structured interviews in hospital and the community. The main outcome measures were social and economic household details of pregnant women; pregnancy and obstetric details; place of delivery; delivery attendant; and reasons given for home delivery. The delivery place of 334/357 (94%) of the pregnant women identified at the survey was determined. 272 (81%) had an institutional delivery and 62 (19%) delivered at home. In univariate analysis comparing home and institutional deliverers, maternal education, parity, and poverty indicators (income, size of house, ownership of house) were associated with place of delivery. After multivariate analysis, low maternal educational level (no education, OR 5.04 [95% CI 1.61-15.8], class 1-10, OR 3.36 [1.04-10.8] compared to those with higher education) and multiparity (OR 3.1 [1.63-5.74] compared to primiparity) were significant risk factors for a home delivery. Of home deliverers, only 24% used a traditional birth attendant, and over half were unplanned due to precipitate labour or lack of transport. We conclude that poor education and multiparity rather than poverty per se increase the risk of a home delivery in Kathmandu. Training TBAs in this setting would probably not be cost-effective. Community-based midwife-run delivery units could reduce the incidence of unplanned home deliveries.  (+info)

Quality of midwifery led care: assessing the effects of different models of continuity for women's satisfaction. (5/480)

BACKGROUND: Changing Childbirth (1993), a report on the future of maternity services in the United Kingdom, endorsed the development of a primarily community based midwifery led service for normal pregnancy, with priority given to the provision of "woman centred care". This has led to the development of local schemes emphasising continuity of midwifery care and increased choice and control for women. AIMS: To compare two models of midwifery group practices (shared caseload and personal caseload) in terms of: (a) the extent to which women see the same midwife antenatally and know the delivery midwife, and (b) women's preference for continuity and satisfaction with their care. METHODS: A review of maternity case notes and survey of a cohort of women at 36 weeks of gestation and 2 weeks postpartum who attended the two midwifery group practices. Questionnaires were completed by 247 women antenatally (72% response) and 222 (68%) postnatally. Outcome measures were the level of continuity experienced during antenatal, intrapartum, and postnatal care, women's preferences for continuity of carer, and ratings of satisfaction with care. RESULTS: The higher level of antenatal continuity of carer with personal caseload midwifery was associated with a lower percentage having previously met their main delivery midwife (60% v 74%). Women's preferences for antenatal continuity were significantly associated with their experiences. Postnatal rating of knowing the delivery midwife as "very important indeed" was associated with both previous antenatal ratings of its importance, and women's actual experiences. Personal continuity of carer was not a clear predictor of women's satisfaction with care. Of greater importance were women's expectations, their relations with midwives, communication, and involvement in decision making. CONCLUSIONS: Midwifery led schemes based on both shared and personal caseloads are acceptable to women. More important determinants of quality and women's satisfaction are the ethos of care consistency of care, good communication, and participation in decisions.  (+info)

Effect of clinical guidelines in nursing, midwifery, and the therapies: a systematic review of evaluations. (6/480)

BACKGROUND: Although nursing, midwifery, and professions allied to medicine are increasingly using clinical guidelines to reduce inappropriate variations in practice and ensure higher quality care, there have been no rigorous overviews of their effectiveness, 18 evaluations of guidelines were identified that meet Cochrane criteria for scientific rigor. METHODS: Guideline evaluations conducted since 1975 which used a randomised controlled trial, controlled before and after, or interrupted time series design were identified through a combination of database and hand searching. RESULTS: 18 studies met the inclusion criteria. Three studies evaluated guideline dissemination or implementation strategies, nine compared use of a guideline with a no guideline state; six studies examined skill substitution: performance of nurses operating according to a guideline were compared with standard care, generally provided by a physician. Significant changes in the process of care were found in six out of eight studies measuring process and in which guidelines were expected to have a positive impact on performance. In seven of the nine studies measuring outcomes of care, significant differences in favour of the intervention group were found. Skill substitution studies generally supported the hypothesis of no difference between protocol driven by nurses and care by a physician. Only one study included a formal economic evaluation, with equivocal findings. CONCLUSIONS: Findings from the review provide some evidence that care driven by a guideline can be effective in changing the process and outcome of care. However, many studies fell short of the criteria of the Cochrane Effective Practice and Organisation of Care Group (EPOC) for methodological quality.  (+info)

Comparison of midwife top-ups, continuous infusion and patient-controlled epidural analgesia for maintaining mobility after a low-dose combined spinal-epidural. (7/480)

We studied 133 women given a combined spinal-epidural for analgesia in labour. The initial intrathecal dose contained bupivacaine 2.5 mg with fentanyl 25 micrograms. When the mothers were comfortable, they were allocated randomly to one of three groups: continuous infusion (group Cl, n = 46), midwife top-ups (group MW, n = 43) or patient-controlled epidural analgesia (group PCEA, n = 44), to maintain analgesia throughout labour. All epidural solutions contained 0.1% bupivacaine and fentanyl 2 micrograms ml-1. Motor block was assessed by the mother's ability to straight leg raise (SLR). Four hours after combined spinal-epidural analgesia, 88.1% of women could SLR in group MW, 83.7% in group PCEA and 57.8% in group Cl (P = 0.002). Total use of bupivacaine was highest in group Cl (mean 11.3 (SD 3.3) mg h-1) compared with group MW (7.5 (3.1) mg h-1) and group PCEA (9.1 (2.1) mg h-1) (P < 0.001). Analgesia was similar between groups and overall satisfaction was equally high.  (+info)

Going the distance: the influence of practice location on the Ontario Maternal Serum Screening Program. (8/480)

BACKGROUND: The Ontario Maternal Serum Screening (MSS) Program was introduced by the Ontario Ministry of Health as a province-wide pilot project in 1993. The objective of this study was to determine the influence of practice location on Ontario health care providers' use of and opinions regarding MSS, access to follow-up services and recommendations about the program. METHODS: A questionnaire was mailed to a random sample of 2000 family physicians, all 565 obstetricians and all 62 registered midwives in Ontario between November 1994 and March 1995. RESULTS: Among providers who were eligible (those providing antenatal care or attending births) the response rates were 91.4% (778/851), 76.0% (273/359) and 78.0% (46/59) respectively. Fewer respondents in the Northwest region (71.4%) and in rural areas (81.9%) stated that they routinely offer MSS to all pregnant women in their practices compared with respondents in other regions (84.4%-91.5%) and urban centres (90.1%). Fewer respondents in the northern regions (Northeast 49.2%, Northwest 25.0%) than in the Central East region (includes Toronto) (76.6%) felt that follow-up services were readily available. Respondents in the northern regions had less favourable opinions of MSS than those in the other regions in terms of its complexity, cost, the time involved in counselling and the high false-positive rate. More respondents in the Central East region (64.6%) and in urban centres (52.9%) recommended not changing the MSS program than did those in the Northwest (7.1%) and rural areas (39.8%). After provider characteristics were controlled for in a logistic regression analysis, practice location was not the most important factor. Instead, the model showed that respondents who cared for 50 or more pregnant women in the previous year were more likely to offer MSS routinely (OR 2.00, 95% CI 1.21-3.27) and that those who felt that patient characteristics affect the offering of MSS (OR 0.42, 95% CI 0.26-0.67) or that follow-up services were not readily available (OR 0.33, 95% CI 0.20-0.55) were less likely to offer it. INTERPRETATION: Health care providers in northern and rural Ontario were less likely to offer MSS routinely than those in other regions and were more likely to recommend changing or eliminating the program. Providers' concerns about the social and cultural sensitivity of MSS and the availability of follow-up services affected use.  (+info)

In low and middle-income countries (LMICs), where the rates of maternal mortality continue to be inappropriately high, there has been recognition of the importance of training traditional birth attendants (TBAs) to help improve outcomes during pregnancy and childbirth. In Guatemala there is no national comprehensive training program in place despite the fact that the majority of women rely on TBAs during pregnancy and childbirth. This community case study presents a unique education program led by TBAs for TBAs in rural Guatemala. Discussion of this training program focuses on programming implementation, curriculum development, sustainable methodology, and how an educational partnership with the current national health care system can increase access to health care for women in LMICs. Recent modifications to this training model are also discussed including how a change in the clinical curriculum is further integrating TBAs into the national health infrastructure. The training program has demonstrated

Midwives save lives. Well-trained midwives could help avert roughly two thirds of all maternal and newborn deaths, according to the most recent State of the Worlds Midwifery report. They could also deliver 87 per cent of all essential sexual, reproductive, maternal and newborn health services. Yet only 42 per cent of people with midwifery skills work in the 73 countries where more than 90 per cent of all maternal and newborn deaths and stillbirths occur. Since 2008, UNFPA has worked with partners, governments and policymakers to help build a competent, well-trained and well-supported midwifery workforce in low-resource settings. UNFPA focuses on four key areas: strengthening competency-based midwifery training; developing strong regulatory mechanisms to ensure quality services; raising the voices of midwives by establishing and strengthening midwifery associations; and advocating for increased investments in midwifery services. UNFPA also works to create a supportive environment for midwives by
BACKGROUND: current efforts to reduce maternal and newborn mortality focus on promoting institutional deliveries with skilled birth attendants (SBAs), and discouraging deliveries at home attended by traditional birth attendants (TBAs). In rural Kenya, semi-nomadic pastoralist communities are underserved by the formal health system, experience high maternal and neonatal mortality, and rely primarily on TBAs for delivery care, despite Government proscription of TBA-assisted births. This study examined the knowledge, attitude and practices of TBAs serving these communities to assess the potential for collaboration between TBAs and SBAs. METHODS: a cross-sectional, interviewer-administered survey was conducted among 171 TBAs from Maasai and Samburu pastoralist communities in Laikipia and Samburu counties, Kenya, as part of a larger mixed-methods study in partnership with a local service provider. RESULTS: TBAs were relatively elderly (mean age 59.6 years), and attended an average of 5-6 deliveries per year.
The maternity care system in the Netherlands is well known for its support of community-based midwifery. However, regular midwifery practices typically do not offer caseload midwifery care - one-to-one continuity of care throughout pregnancy and birth. Because we know very little about the outcomes for women receiving caseload care in the Netherlands, we compared caseload care with regular midwife-led care, looking at maternal and perinatal outcomes, including antenatal and intrapartum referrals to secondary (i.e., obstetrician-led) care. We selected 657 women in caseload care and 1954 matched controls (women in regular midwife-led care) from all women registered in the Dutch Perinatal Registry (Perined) who gave birth in 2015. To be eligible for selection the women had to be in midwife-led antenatal care beyond 28 gestational weeks. Each woman in caseload care was matched with three women in regular midwife-led care, using parity, maternal age, background (Dutch or non-Dutch) and region. These two
more likelihood of breastfeeding at discharge from hospital. The overall median cost of birth per woman was AU$566.74 less with caseload midwifery than with standard care. Professor Sally Tracy, said the study confirmed for the first time that caseload midwifery care is feasible for women of all risk and cost effective at all levels of care. Given the limited information available about the cost of maternity services in Australia, its significant to find that caseload midwifery produces a saving of $566.74 for each woman who gave birth in the public hospital, she said. Professor Tracy said the study refuted the common misconception that one-to-one caseload midwifery care was expensive. Caseload midwifery care has been largely overlooked because of the incorrect belief that the service will be too expensive and that the model is not safe for complex pregnancies. Our randomised trial showed that caseload care can achieve similar outcomes to standard care - and it costs the public purse ...

Early neonatal death. Fig. 1 provides a graphical summary of the percentage of concordant responses to individual interview questions, with the mothers responses used as the reference standard. Questions A1-14, B1-16, C1-6, D1-12 and E1-16 marked along the x-axis correspond to the questions and responses presented in Appendix A (available at: ). Concordance across all questions was 91%, 94% and 95% among nurses/nurse midwives, certified traditional birth attendants and untrained traditional birth attendants, respectively. Since beyond this level of analysis the sample size for each type of birth attendant became too small to permit stratification and further statistical analyses, henceforth we combine birth attendants of all types when reporting concordance. Concordance across all questions was 94%. Concordance was 95% or greater for at least half of the questions in the categories for maternal medical history, birth attendance ...
Purpose: Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest neonatal mortality rates in the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes disparities in care as a contributing factor to neonatal mortality in low-and middle-income countries (LMIC). The WHO has therefore incorporated maternal and newborn care educational programs for Maternal Child Health (MCH) providers. This dissertation includes research that will guide the development of future educational interventions regarding neonatal airway management, tailored to the learning needs of midwives and Traditional Birth Attendants (TBAs) in rural Uganda. Problem: There is an urgent need to provide neonatal resuscitation education and to build clinical capacity in LMIC, where access to health care is poor, particularly in rural areas. The burden of neonatal mortality and long term impairment due to hypoxic brain damage can significantly affect the population. Gap: The WHO has developed programs to address neonatal airway management, which are geared ...

Top of page. The nursing and midwifery professions and their representing unions have, over the years, advocated that nurses and midwives are under-remunerated given the degree of training, professional responsibility that they face and the challenging nature of their workplace environments, leaving them vulnerable to stress, overwork and professional burnout. The recent decision by the Western Australian Government to grant nurses a substantial pay increase of 14% (over three years) appears to be an example where some of these concerns have been identified and addressed, which may assist to maintain the competitiveness of nursing as a career option compared to other sectors, such as the mining and related industries. Appropriate nursing and midwifery leadership education is also suggested, as good clinical nurses and midwives may be promoted to leadership positions without skills, qualifications and/or support to undertake this important role. Much research has been conducted, both in Australia ...
For the second time this year, work by researchers with strong connections to UICs College of Nursing (CON) has been highlighted by the Journal of Midwifery & Womens Health for significant contributions to midwifery.

This study shows that knowledge about HIV/AIDS is extremely low among TBA living in rural areas of Mysore Taluk. An overwhelming majority (88%) of surveyed birth attendants had not even heard of HIV/AIDS, a surprising finding given that the epidemic in India is more than two decades old. This is in stark contrast to high levels of knowledge found by the government of India among the general population in HIV sentinel surveillance surveys. The 2006 National Behavioral Surveillance Survey showed 75 percent of people living in rural areas were aware of HIV/AIDS[15]. Even the small number of TBA in our study, who had knowledge about HIV demonstrated poor understanding about how the virus was transmitted. Additionally, less than half of those were aware of the potential for preventing vertical transmission of HIV. Finally, 39 of the 51 TBA (76%) who had said they had heard of HIV/AIDS, expressed unwillingness to attend the births of HIV-infected mothers.. The level of knowledge about safe birthing ...

Birth is a Human Rights Issue. I just learned that another obstetrician friend lost his license because of an unexpected homebirth outcome. He is from Brazil where there is/was a strong movement toward humane birth, but also the second highest caesarean rate in the world-just after China. There is a continuing movement against good doctors and midwives going on throughout the world. This is happening at a time when we are learning more about how important birth is to the lifetime health of the mother and, especially, the baby. The people who are being stopped from practicing are generally those with the best outcomes.. At Midwifery Today we try to make people aware that birth is a human rights issue. We have had conferences, E-news issues and an issue of our magazine dedicated to that theme. I believe we are suffering an ongoing crisis in birth care around the world. An example of that crisis is great doctors and midwives being stopped in their efforts to help moms have the best birth ...

The current standard prenatal care schedule of primary care midwives comprises an average of 14 face-to-face visits. In daily practice, some pregnant women have up to 25 face-to-face visits.. In some midwifery practices, there seems to be an increasing trend of frequent attendance. The prevalence and determinants of inadequate prenatal health care use have been studied at length. However, there has been little research on the prevalence, determinants, and underlying causes of frequent attendance in prenatal care. Poorer outcomes are reported among frequent attenders compared to women with an average of number of visits, e.g. preterm birth and low birth-weight.. Mixed methods, such as a case-control study, a cohort study, interviews and document study, will be used to answer the research questions.. ...

SEBONI, Naomi M. et al. Shaping the role of sub-Saharan African nurses and midwives: Stakeholders perceptions of the nurses and midwives tasks and roles. Health SA Gesondheid (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.18, n.1, pp.1-9. ISSN 2071-9736.. To explore the role expectations of different stakeholders in the health care system on the roles and tasks that nurses and midwives perform, in order to clarify and strengthen these roles and shape the future of nursing education and practice in sub-Saharan Africa. Qualitative focus group discussions were held with different stakeholders (nurses, health service managers, patients and their caregivers, community members and leaders and other health professionals) in eight African countries in order to establish their role expectations of nurses and midwives. Three questions about their role expectations and the interviews were taped, transcribed, and translated into English and analysed. There was consensus amongst the stakeholders regarding eight role ...

Researchers at City, University of London have launched new midwifery standards in partnership with the Midwifery Unit Network (MUNet) to support the growth of midwifery units and enable them to becoming the main care pathway for healthy women with straightforward pregnancies in Europe.. Announced at the Midwifery Unit Network Conference, the aim of the standards is to guide midwives, managers and commissioners across Europe in creating and developing midwifery units, which provide a safe and cost effective alternative to hospital obstetric unit care for healthy women with uncomplicated pregnancies. The standards also have the aim of improving the quality of midwifery unit care and reducing variability in practice..

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): The purposes of this study were to explore the work of midwives and their experiences with the medical community, and to examine their goals and hopes for the profession of midwifery in Virginia. To facilitate this purpose, the guiding research questions included: What do midwives believe the role of a midwife is? What are their experiences with the medical community? What are their hopes and goals for the future of midwifery in Virginia? Through interviews, focus groups and participating as a researcher-observer, I found that both certified nurse-midwives and certified professional midwives believe the role of midwife is one of support. Furthermore, midwives experiences with the medical community are both restrictive and supportive, and both groups are pursuing the advancement of midwifery acceptance and practice through building relationships and advocating for midwifery. The dominance of medical authoritative knowledge of

Objectives: To explore midwives intrapartum referral decisions in relation to their dispositional attitude towards risk. Design: A web-based correlation study examined the association between midwives personality (personal risk tendency); place of work (location); years experience and the timing of their decisions to make referrals (referral score) in a series of fictitious case scenarios (vignettes). Participants: Sample - 102 midwives providing labour care in both Consultant Led Units (CLU) and Community Maternity Units (CMU) from four Scottish Health Board areas. Analysis: A correlational analysis was carried out to test the association between total risk scores and midwives referral scores. Between-group comparisons were also conducted for experienced versus inexperienced midwives, midwives practising in consultant versus CMU settings and between the four Health Board Areas. Findings: Despite being presented with identical information in the vignettes, midwives made a wide range of ...

A birth attendant, also known as skilled birth attendant (SBA), is a midwife, physician, obstetrician, nurse, or other health care professional who provides basic and emergency health care services to women and their newborns during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. Birth attendants are trained to be present at (attend) childbirth, whether the delivery takes place in a health care institution or at home, to recognize and respond appropriately to medical complications, and to implement interventions to help prevent them in the first place including through prenatal care. There are three different types of midwives. There is a nurse-midwife who must obtain a high level of education, either bachelors or masters in midwifery, after becoming a nurse. Nurse-midwives can serve in most birthing centers, hospitals, and can have a private home birth practice. Then there is a Certified Professional Midwife. This midwife can obtain a license by following an apprenticeship/internship ...

The aim of this paper is to highlight the gap between existing research evidence and nursing and midwifery practices in caring for women following successful in vitro fertilization (IVF) and gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT), and to suggest directions for research within these disciplines. We argue that although the number of couples in the UK experiencing fertility problems has risen, 1.4% of all births in the UK are as the result of infertility treatments (HFEA, 2005/2006); yet there is little research into the experiences of motherhood for women who successfully achieve pregnancy following IVF or GIFT. Consequently, there is negligible research evidence for nurses and midwives practicing in this area, and British healthcare staff appear to be unaware of the specific needs of infertile women during pregnancy, birth and early motherhood. In this paper we review the existing literature on this group of women, which falls into three areas: studies into the psychosocial development of the ...
In contrast to other countries, Austria rarely offers alternative models to medical led-care. In an attempt to improve the facilities, a midwife-led care service was incorporated within the Department of Obstetrics and Fetomaternal Medicine. The aim of the present study was to analyze the maternal and neonatal outcomes of this approach. Over a 10-years period, a total of 2123 low-risk women receiving midwife-led care were studied. Among these women, 148 required obstetric referral. Age- and parity matched low-risk women with spontaneous vaginal birth overseen by an obstetrician-led team were used as controls to ensure comparability of data. Midwife-led care management demonstrated a significant decrease in interventions, including oxytocin use (p < 0.001), medical pain relief (p < 0.001), and artificial rupture of membranes (ARM) (p < 0.01) as well as fewer episiotomies (p < 0.001), as compared with obstetrician-led care. Moreover, no negative effects on maternal or neonatal outcomes were observed. The

Read on Formula Milk Supplementation on the Postnatal Ward; A Cross-Sectional Analytical Study of Midwives Perceptions and Behavior.
Background: Maternal nutrition during pregnancy affects the health of the mother and the baby. Midwives are ideally placed to provide nutrition education to pregnant women. There is limited published research evidence of Australian midwives nutrition knowledge, attitudes and confidence. Aim: To investigate Australian midwives nutrition knowledge, attitudes and confidence in providing nutrition education during pregnancy. Methods: Members of the Australian College of Midwives (n = 4770) were sent an invitation email to participate in a web-based survey, followed by two reminders. Findings: The completion rate was 6.9% (329 of 4770). The majority (86.6% and 75.7%, respectively) highly rated the importance of nutrition during pregnancy and the significance of their role in nutrition education. Midwives nutrition knowledge was inadequate in several areas such as weight gain, dairy serves and iodine requirements (73.3%, 73.2% and 79.9% incorrect responses, respectively). The level of confidence in
Introduction. Process criteria define practices that enjoy general recognition and acceptance amongst midwives or authoritative statements by which the quality of midwifery practice can be judged (Danasu 2007). Criteria are also defined as a performance model that is used to judge quality of childbirth objectives, orders and methods. This article describes how formulated criteria were integrated within the framework of Batho Pele principles to provide a guide to the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to provide safer and efficacious midwifery care. Such criteria would assure women that they are receiving high quality midwifery care. Midwives would also know exactly what is necessary to provide quality care, and that measures are in place to determine whether the care meets the standards.. Part 1 of this study (Maputle & Hiss 2013) analysed woman-centred care as a core concept and was relevant to childbirth care within the framework of the Batho Pele principles as a customer focused ...

We believe mothers and midwives are partners in promoting a healthy outcome for mother and baby. Learn more about midwifery and pregnancy care at Hua Moon.
Home birth is a very safe option for healthy women who are experiencing a healthy pregnancy (Cheyney, 2014). It is your right as a mother to birth in the safety of your own home. When choosing home birth with a midwife, you are in control of the process and are provided with resources and support to truly own your birth. Midwifery care provides a holistic approach to pregnancy and birth in which families are truly listened to and take an active part in their own care. Home birth enables families to experience a birth outside the realm of interventions and can be a powerful experience especially if families have experienced a less than ideal birth in the past. It is an experience based on mutual trust: your midwife trusts that your body and baby will work together for a successful birth and you trust your midwife to provide a safe birth environment. A midwife does not rescue you from birth but helps you dig deep to find the power within and birth your baby as only you know how.. Reference: ...

My next challenge in kitty midwifery (should that be Midkittery?) is the fact that I have a runt on my hands. Yesterday he seemed fiesty enough, but as the day has gone on, every time I checked on him he has grown weaker and colder. Of course he is conserving his energy and resources. I help him try to nurse and he doesnt have the strength to continue. So, with great hesitancy, this midwife went to the store and bought kitty formula. I will admit that alternatives ran through my mind, right down to wondering, is it possible to milk a cat ...
Health Foundation found there has been a 96% decline in the number of EU nurses and midwives registering with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
One April night, 19-year-old Ilionelle was struggling to give birth at her home in rural northwest Haiti. After several hours, she began having seizures, a clear indication of eclampsia, a severe medical disorder that can lead to the death of the mother, the baby, or both.. Tilma, the traditional birth attendant (TBA) helping Ilionelle, quickly identified these life-threatening symptoms and arranged for her transport to Beraca Hospital for emergency obstetric care. After being carried on a stretcher for four hours along a steep and treacherous road, Ilionelle arrived at Beraca Hospital where she safely delivered a healthy baby boy. If it wasnt for Tilma, both my son and I could have died, she said.. Tilma has been delivering babies in her community for 22 years with basic skills training that she received from her late mother, who was also a TBA. Through the PEPFAR-funded, USAID-implemented Santé pour le Développement et la Stabilité dHaïti (SDSH) project, Tilma received additional ...
Why Home Birth? Reasons why Home Birth over Hospital Births, Home Birth safer then Hospital births? Every informed choice counts. Education is the key!
Reducing maternal mortality and morbidity remains a challenge worldwide. In 2013, 289,000 women died from pregnancy-related causes, and maternal death was identified as the second biggest killer of women of reproductive age for that year [1]. The majority of those deaths occurred in developing countries, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, and could have been prevented by improving access to quality care. In line with this, skilled birth attendance was recognized as a crucial intervention to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity [2, 3]. However, skilled birth attendance cannot be achieved if maternal services are not sufficiently utilized. If health services were more responsive to the citizens demands and made changes on the basis of ideas or concerns raised by or with community members [4], their utilization would probably improve [5]. A key way to ensure better utilization of services is to strengthen the community voice and take into account community concerns and views in health planning ...
Background:. Family planning allows people to attain their desired number of children and determine the spacing of pregnancies. It is achieved through the use of contraceptive methods and the treatment of infertility. It secures the well-being and autonomy of women while supporting the health and development of the communities. A midwife can support people having family planning facilities and thus reduce maternal and neonatal mortality and morbidity and unnecessary interventions, and improve psychosocial and public health.. Objective:. The objective of the study was to assess the knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions towards family planning among future midwives in Bangladesh.. Methods:. A cross-sectional study was conducted among final year midwifery students (n=141) of 16 public midwifery nursing institutes and colleges of Bangladesh. A structured questionnaire was used and data analyzed by descriptive statistics in Excel.. Results:. Almost all respondents agreed on the statement that women ...
In 2007 the Nursing and Midwifery Council recommended that across the UK all pre-registration, undergraduate student midwives should, as part of their education, have the opportunity to experience continuity of care through caseloading practice. This article reports on a qualitative exploration of student midwives views of caseloading a known group of women, which formed part of a larger action research project through Bournemouth Universitys pre-registration, undergraduate midwifery programme. Analysis of the caseloading data revealed four themes: preparation to undertake a caseload; knowing your mentor; tri-partite meetings; and relevance of caseloading to their learning in becoming midwives. Caseloading was identified by the students as being a highly valuable learning experience. Attitudes of the midwife mentor and link tutor were seen as important and impacted on student confidence in preparing for, and learning from, their caseloading experience. Findings of this study highlight the ...

In the present study we describe the self-estimated difficulties and show the ability of the midwives to successfully add new ultrasound modalities to a standardized fetal ultrasound screening of the heart. By designing a short initial course based on a combination of the experience and actual needs and skills of the participants, hands-on training as advocated reduced uncertainty, but it was found that continuous on-site training with clinical and technical back-up are important.. In the present screening program in the South Eastern region of Sweden the fetal heart is considered normal if it is possible to obtain and verify a normal four-chamber view. This has, however, been proven to be highly ineffective for the detection of most CHD [5, 6]. Is it possible, with a short course and further on-site training with backup, to achieve a better detection rate in a routine clinical screening situation in a low-risk population in Sweden? As noted in the introduction, the antenatal detection of CHD ...

In a separate admission to the senate estimates committee, the Employment Advocate Peter McIlwain confirmed that any leave to attend union-provided training - including OHS training - is prohibited in workplace agreements under the Governments new industrial laws.. Leave to attend training, provided by a trade union, however described, is prohibited as per the regulations, Mr McIlwain told the committee.. This startling admission followed an appeal by 38 Beaconsfield miners, including members of the rescue team, that called on the federal government to remove the ban on union health and safety training.. We believe every worker has the right to return home from work safely every day. And we believe the right to occupational health and safety is a direct result of union involvement in the workplace, they said in a joint declaration.. Unions and union training improve workplace safety. We are concerned that the federal governments new industrial laws attack the role of unions in our ...
Birth Blog by a Midwife for Midwives, Midwifery Students, Pregnant, Breastfeeding & Postpartum Mothers - Waterbirth, Unassisted Birth, Homebirth, Home birth, Hospital Birth VBAC Vaginal Birth After Cesarean all discussed.
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 ...
Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is the leading cause of maternal death worldwide. Not surprisingly, there is a stark difference in survival rates for PPH between developed and developing countries, a clear indication that most of these deaths are preventable. Women who develop PPH require aggressive emergency obstetric intervention which is simply not available in low-resource settings. In addition, the higher prevalence of anemia among women in developing countries is a further complicating factor.. At Saving Mothers, we recognize that the majority of births in developing countries occur outside of the hospital and are attended by minimally skilled birth attendants. When confronted with PPH, these birth attendants simply do not have the knowledge or the tools to manage this complication, and in many cases distance to the hospital will preclude emergency referral. Saving Mothers wanted to develop a low-tech solution to this problem, so we created a postpartum hemorrhage kit that includes life-saving ...
Q - Can I really have a vaginal birth at home after a cesarean?. A - Two weeks ago, I was contacted by a couple who called me on a Thursday afternoon. They came to see my that night and we talked for two hours. Their medical midwives, who had supported a VBAC in certain ways throughout the pregnancy, were beginning to pressure her and to talk about having a section after all. The next night, Friday, at 8 PM, they called and said they had decided to have a birth at home and asked if i would attend them. The next day, Saturday, the woman went into labor and birthed at home. So you see, it is very possible to have a natural birth after two - or more - cesareans. If you go onto the ICAN website, you will see that women with three, four and five have natural births. But it is imperative that you be with care providers who are relaxed, who are not knife happy, and who are not fearful - and who want a natural birth for you just about as much as you want one for yourselves. Otherwise, you get cut ...

Updated 22 May 2015. Overall we found that the inpatient maternity service was providing a good service to women and their babies.There had been a significant improvement in the numbers of midwifery staff across the service, and this was having a positive impact on patient safety as there were more midwives to deliver care to women and their babies. However, there were areas relating to safety that required improvement. The maternity assessment unit did not have any equipment with which to resuscitate a newborn baby. Medicines were not always stored at the correct temperatures and an appropriate tracking system for keys to patient medication lockers was not in place.The storage of formula milk was not well managed. Effective controls were not in place to prevent the abduction of infants from the labour ward and the Catharine Medical Centre. Midwifery staffing levels were satisfactory across the service; however the number of hours of consultant cover (77 hours) were lower than the recommended ...
