THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND

Introduction Pregnancy is one of the most risky events in a woman’s life. During the ancient times, delivery of the fetus was the very cause of mortality and morbidity among women and infants. Most of the pregnant mothers, during those years have their domiciliary midwifery or delivery at home. Many years have passed before the discovery of medicines, instruments and procedures that could be used. These discoveries contributed a lot to the conservation of life and for the improvement of midwifery practices. Pregnant mothers are required by medical practitioners to deliver in the clinics or hospitals for safety, to avoid complications and for quick responses to emergencies, since adequate facilities and personnel are available. But even though these pregnant mothers opt to deliver in the hospital, there is still a possibility for infection or complication or even neonatal death. Philippines is among 42 nations that account for 90 percent of global deaths of children under five years of age (Cavalli- Sforza, 2011). Over 40, 000 Filipino newborns die every year, with the majority of them dying in the first two days after birth. Newborn deaths account for 37 percent of the 82,000 Filipino children die annually.

    Every year, more than three million infants are born in the United States. For the mother, one of the most important things is bringing the baby out from the womb safely into the world. The majority of women choose to birth their children in hospitals with doctors, mainly because it is believed that hospitals are the safest environment to birth a child. Others, decide to stick to what they consider a more natural option: at home births with midwives. Whatever the situation may be, the mothers have their child’s best interest at hand. The fact of the matter is, no matter how well one plans, and no matter how excellent a medical professional may be, sometimes complications are inevitable. Historically midwives did not have to be doctors, because…

    The word RAID stands for redundant ray of independent disks. Raid is usually used in environments with servers or at a business with large file servers, transaction of application servers, where data accessibility is critical, and fault tolerance is required. There are 8 types of raids, Raid 0 is technically not a raid level because it offers no fault tolerance but, it operates by providing data stripping which takes the information and spreads it out over all the disk drives. However, if one drive fails than the entire raid fails. Raid 1 is also referred to as disk mirroring; it basically takes the information from one disk and stores it on multiple disks, this is great for fault tolerance because if one disk fails the information is on another disk. The only drawback to raid 1 is data access speed and the cost because there are more disks involved. Raid 5 is considerably the most commonly used Raid level simply because it provides both stripping and parity. The parity block is distributed to all of the drives making it easier to access the information or have a balanced access load. The parity in raid 5 is used if one of the drives happens to fail, to recover that drive which makes the raid 5 the most common however the only drawback to this raid level is that it has a relatively slow write cycle. Lastly, RAID level 6 which is very similar to raid level 5 but provides two parity functions rather than just one. A minimum of four disks is required to create RAID level 6.…

    With technology on the rise and an increased experience from the past there is now a confusing array of choices that the pregnant mother has to deliver her baby (Harding, 2003). These models affect the type of care she receives, the location of her birth, the type of birth she endures, the people that surround her and also the care her baby will receive in an emergency. The social, emotional, spiritual and physical health determinants will all be affected relative to the model of care that is chosen. The purpose of this paper is to provide an insight into the advantages and disadvantages of birth centers, specifically participating in group practice midwifery and analyse how this affects a pregnant mother’s holistic health and the babies. Group practice in birth centers are midwifery-based forms of care and provide many benefits including, continuity of care, excellent shared decision making and cost. However this model of care does pose some problems including the lack of pain medication and whether birthing centers are the safest option for both mother and child.…

    In the beginning of the 20th century the health of women and their babies was considered a major health problem; for every 1000 births, six to nine women in the US died of pregnancy-related complications and 100 infants died before age 1 year (Mackel, 1990; Loudon, 1992). During 1938-1948 a shift in the proportion of infants born in hospitals increased from 55% to 90% (Children’s Bureau, 1950). During those years medical advances such as the use of antibiotics, oxytocin to induce labor, safe blood transfusions and management of hyptensive conditions during…

    The number of babies born to women each year is overwhelming. Out of every 10 women who give births, 3 of them are by cesarean births. Although complications could arise from any birth style, some birthing procedures are offered to reduce some of the risk of other birthing procedures. In this article I plan to discuss the pros and cons of cesarean birth as well as the pros and cons of vaginal birth. The content of this paper will discuss each birth practice with a better understanding of why it is very important to choose your options wisely, that is, if the option is given and there are no complications. The material in this paper will be presented along with a personal view of the information that is specified in this article. To conclude, this article will summarize the main focus points that will in hopes add to one’s own understanding of the material that has been listed.…

    For hundred of years, women have wrestled with their womanhood, bodies, and what it means to be a woman in our society. Being a woman comes with a wonderful and empowering responsibility--giving birth. What sets us aside from other countries is that the process and expectations of giving birth has changed in our society; coming from midwifery, as it has always been since the early times, to hospitals where it is now expected to give birth at. Midwifery was a common practice in delivering babies in the early times, until doctors, who began a political campaign smear against midwives, which led to a decline in opting midwives in the birthing process. Poignantly, giving birth to an OB-GYN was dangerous because many doctors graduating from medical school had not seen a live birth before setting out to practice, which meant infant mortality transcended.…

    Each country has a different procedure when it comes to their health care and their care with pre and postnatal. Some countries can spend a great amount of money on their health care (such as the United States) but still might not have the best health care in the world. Others have special arrangements that new mothers and infants can go through to make sure that they start off their life in a good and healthy environment. In this paper I am going to compare and contrast the infant health care and the overall prenatal care in the United States and South Korea by referencing multiple articles and textbooks that focus on this subject. Both countries have various ways in which they handle their health system and the care of their newborns. There are many factors that determine the health of a newborn such as the nutrition that the soon to be mother consumes, the environment that the mother and the child live in, and the hospital that the child is born in. Throughout the years each of these countries have been putting time and money into their health system with the goal of having the most outstanding health care system in the world. Their progress can be recorded in many different ways which will be discussed within this paper. Also the United States and South Korea both have very different systems when dealing with prenatal and infant care.…

    “Midwives will automatically refer a woman to an obstetrician if she has high blood pressure, heart problems, high blood sugar, or low iron. The midwife will continue to check a woman physical and emotional state during regular prenatal visits. Most importantly midwives will not hesitate to refuse to attend a home birth if they have the slightest inclination of a serious complication that may require a hospital setting.” (Handling Complications During a Home Birth, Barbara Harper, RN on January 1, 1999) A larger number of midwives will not perform home births any longer because of the possible complications that can be dealt with much more quickly at the hospital. “Often the midwife will have a good rapport with the hospital staff and the birth experience can still proceed as if the mother and midwife were still at home.” (Handling Complications During a Home Birth, Barbara Harper, RN on January 1, 1999) Time can be of the utmost importance when dealing with complications such as mother or baby’s vital signs dropping or rising quickly. If birthing at home one has to add travel time to dealing with the complication, but at the hospital doctors, medications, and equipment are readily available to correct the…
