This prevention identify to problem in its early stages before it becomes an even bigger problem and while it’s still treatable. The last one is tertiary prevention.

Too many OB/GYN’s aren’t able to practice their love with women all across the country.” There are a variety of obstetricians and gynecologists who, unfortunately, have had the issue of dropping out of their practice due to upcoming problems in the work force. Obstetricians and gynecologists practice with the reproductive system of a women, and the work of delivering a baby. The complications in the ob-gyn labor force include the unproportional ratio of ob-gyns to women who are expecting a child.…

    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…

    Other models of care including obstetric models place less emphasis on continuity of care and therefore marginalize the mother’s holistic health. For example public obstetric care still provides the mother with antenatal care but the mother could see a different obstetrician each time she has a check up. This results in no form of relationship with the team who will deliver her baby, which affects the mothers social and emotional health determinants. Birthing centers contrast this model by providing the same team of midwives throughout the entire pregnancy. This method therefore heightens the mother’s confidence in her team and all members of the team have an understanding of the mother choices rather than duplicating information as seen in shared maternity care.…

    The Australian College of Midwives believes that it is the right of every pregnant woman to have access to continuity of care by a known midwife for her pregnancy, labour and early postnatal period. Midwives are the most appropriate primary care providers for healthy mothers and newborn babies and are able to refer to specialist medical care if the need arises (Hicks, Spurgeon & Barwell, 2003). Midwives must work within the competency standards enforced by The ANMC Australian Nursing & Midwifery Council (2006) in order to obtain and practice as a registered midwife in Australia. Competency 4 states Midwives should “promote safe and effective practice” (ANMC, 2006), this is achievable by providing Midwifery continuity of care to women and there babies. Continuity of care has numerous health and satisfaction benefits to the woman, family and newborn (Lavender et al. 2002).…

    The birth of a child is an event of both tremendous joy and stress. In this day and age, there are several options in regards to childbirth that include the before and after care of a newborn. But which method would provide future parents the greatest success in the delivery room? The two main options I will be discussing will be midwives or physicians. Many physicians agree that “"the safest setting for labour, delivery and the immediate post-partum period is in a hospital or a birthing center within a hospital."(Kluger, 2009). However, midwives seem to disagree by saying “home births attended by trained nurse-midwives are no less safe than hospital births...providing the midwives are affiliated with a nearby hospital to which the mothers can be brought in case of complications.”(Kluger, 2009). Although both methods are healthy, is seems as though women are more comfortable with midwives than doctors “a good midwife.....has to be caring and they need to give the patient emotional supports as well as physical support” (Reiger & Lane, 2009). Midwifery care, associated with low risk pregnancies, provides a comfortable and caring environment that is a personal experience for both the mother and the baby, as well as provides are more comfortable form of before and after care in comparison to physicians.…

    As Page (2000) states, in providing woman centred care, it is important to understand the woman together with her values, worries and hopes for her pregnancy. In Jill’s case, it was important for the midwife and student to approach her as a pregnant woman and not as woman with diabetes who happened to be pregnant, thereby medicalising her pregnancy. The midwife and student let Jill talk about her anxieties and wishes regarding the pregnancy. It was explained to Jill that regular appointments with the obstetrician and diabetic team would be recommended, but that continuity would still be maintained with the midwife and student. In practice, midwifery professionals actively pursue best outcomes for the women and babies in their care, with reduction in mortality/morbidity highly prioritised (Page, 2000). However, the inherent risk is that of adherence to guidelines standing in the way of the midwife viewing the woman holistically (Page, 2000). Although Jill had obvious medical needs due to her diabetes (Bewley, 2004), the midwife and student involved her in the decisions about her care, thus empowering Jill whilst still ensuring safety, a vital part of midwifery care (Page, 2000). Further discussion at booking revealed Jill’s wish for minimal intervention during labour and that she hoped to be able to avoid elective caesarean section. The midwife and student acknowledged Jill’s feelings and suggested that discussions continued as the pregnancy progressed, as decisions would need to be made depending on both…

    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.…
