By MICHELLE COLLINS, PhD, CNM, FACNM, FAAN The World Health Organization has named 2020 the Year of the Nurse and Midwife. However, most Americans have never experienced a midwife’s care. In my over 30 years working in maternal-child health, I’ve heard plenty of reasons why. Families are understandably nervous about that with which they are unfamiliar, and nervous about pregnancy and birth in general, with good reason. The cesarean birth rate in the US has more than quadrupled since the early 1970’s, yet we aren’t seeing healthier mothers and babies as a result. In fact, compared to the prior gen...

Conclusion Most respondents had inadequate knowledge, attitudes and practices regarding episiotomy. Although some factors such as age, teaching, working in the public sector and attending congresses improved knowledge, attitude and practice, we must recognize that episiotomy rates remain well above what would be considered ideal. Adequate knowledge is more prevalent than adequate attitude or practice, indicating that improving knowledge is crucial but insufficient to change the outlook of episiotomies in Brazil.Resumo Objetivo Determinar o n ível e os fatores associados a conhecimento, atitude e prática (CAP)...

INCREASED OASIS INCIDENCE - INDICATOR OF THE QUALITY OF OBSTETRIC CARE? Acta Clin Croat. 2019 Jun;58(2):365-370 Authors: Košec V, Djaković I, Čukelj M, Ejubović E, Sumpor B, Djaković Ž Abstract In the era of new molecular, epigenetic and proteomic discoveries, birth canal injuries seem like outdated discussion. A vast increase in the incidence of obstetric anal sphincter injuries (OASIS) has been recorded in the last two decades despite advantages in modern medicine and new obstetric methods. This increase might be attributed to the new classification of perineal injury but also to the new ...
