ABSTRACT The impact of obstetric technology on the outcome of pregnancy has been evaluated by three main categories of outcome measures‐those to do with mortality, physical morbidity, and “psychosocial” morbidity. There has been a marked preference among obstetricians and epidemiologists for mortality as a measure of outcome. The reasons for this . This raises the question of whether the decreased obstetric intervention in the home birth group may have caused more neonatal deaths due to asphyxia. Women intending home deliveries had better outcomes: fewer infections, 3rd-degree lacerations, perineal and vaginal lacerations, hemorrhages, and retained placentas; and there was no significant.

  This systematic review aims to assess the effect of mindfulness-based interventions carried out during pregnancy exploring mindfulness and mental health outcomes. A systematic review was conducted to appraise the current literature on the subject area. Inclusion and exclusion criteria were agreed and after reviewing titles, abstracts and full papers, 14 . Obstetric Anesthesia: An Updated Report by the ASA Task Force on Obstetric Anesthesia,” adopted by ASA in in the summary report for each intervention–outcome pair, including a directional designation of benefit, harm, or equivocality for each outcome. Category A.

  Even Britain's National Health Service has come around, issuing guidelines last year stating that most women are safer giving birth at home, without drugs or surgery or medical interventions. But.   The study’s authors concluded that the risks of over-intervention in the hospital may outweigh the risks of under-intervention at a birth center or at home for the majority of expecting mothers.

This week, the BMJ publishes data that suggests that the rates of obstetric intervention are higher in the private sector than the public sector despite negligible differences in risk factors. This is consistent both with more women choosing to have operative deliveries and with doctors being willing to perform them.

Of particular concern is the increasing amount of mothers and babies experiencing morbidity and mortality associated with caesarean section compared to vaginal birth.

That is, the characteristics of mothers receiving obstetric intervention. Background of maternal and child health in Queensland. Queensland has a population of approximately 4 million, spread across a total land area of 1, km 2, some seven times the size of Great Britain.

Objectives To compare the risk profile of women giving birth in private and public hospitals and the rate of obstetric intervention during birth compared with previous published rates from a decade ago. Design Population-based descriptive study. Setting New South Wales, Australia. Participants women giving birth to a singleton baby during the period to Main outcome.

characterise the use of obstetric intervention in the state of Queensland, Australia by examining the characteristics of mothers receiving obstetric intervention. Identifying whether there is overuse of obstetric interventions within a population is critical to improving the quality, value and appropriateness of maternity care.

Richard Johanson and colleagues argue here that perhaps normal birth has become too “medicalised” and that higher rates of normal birth are in fact associated with beliefs about. Obstetric violence is a specific type of violation of women’s rights, including the rights to equality, freedom from discrimination, information, integrity, health, and reproductive autonomy.

It occurs both in public and private medical practice during health care related to pregnancy, childbirth, and post-partum and is a multi-factorial. [32] [33] [34] Both physicians and patients report a high level of satisfaction with these models, 11, and outcomes are good.

Obstetric intervention originally consisted of extraction of the baby, usually by the breech, to save the mother's life in obstructed labour. Forceps, introduced in the 17th century, were later refined by men-midwives like William Smellie.

In Victorian times, Simpson championed chloroform anaesthesia, Lister pioneered antisepsis, and caesarean section was introduced. Inhowever, Britain.

INTRODUCTION. Many authors have reported increasing maternal age as a risk factor for poor obstetric outcome 1; however, the majority of these studies have compared women over 35 or 40 years of age with a younger control group and few of have examined mode of delivery as a specific ng that physiological changes associated with ageing are the cause of this poor outcome .The outcomes of interest were guided by the conceptual framework (Figure 1).

These were: maternal and neonatal mortality comprising stillbirths, live births, and case fatalities; intermediate outcomes such as utilisation levels and care for maternal compli-cations (expressed as the ‘‘met need for obstetric care,’’ which is the.An Intervention & Outcomes Jim Farris, Ph.D., PT ATSU Arizona School of Health Sciences Laura Taylor & Megan Williamson NEA Clinic Charitable Foundation, Center for Healthy Children, Jonesboro, AR Christopher Robinson Arkansas State University.
