Risk and protective factors for obstetric anal sphincter injuries: A retrospective nationwide study
Abstract BackgroundIn view of the reported increase in obstetric anal sphincter injuries, the objective of this study was to evaluate the incidence of such injuries over time and the associated risk and protective factors. MethodsThis was a retrospective cohort study from a national database of 168 137 primiparous women with term, singleton, cephalic, vaginal delivery between 2008 and 2014. The main outcome measure was obstetric anal sphincter injury. A multivariate regression model was used to identify risk and protective factors. ResultsAge>19 years, birthweight>4000 g, and operative vaginal delivery...

Exclusive breastfeeding in hospital predicts longer breastfeeding duration in Canada: Implications for health equity
We examined the association between maternal education, newborn feeding in hospital, and long‐term breastfeeding duration. MethodsWe studied 3195 Canadian mother‐infant dyads in the CHILD pregnancy cohort. Newborn feeding was documented from hospital records. Caregivers reported sociodemographic factors and infant feeding at 3, 6, 12, 18, and 24 months. ResultsOverall, 97% of newborns initiated breastfeeding and 74% were exclusively breastfed in hospital. Exclusively breastfed newborns were ultimately breastfed longer compared with those who received formula supplementation during their hospital stay (median 11.0 ...

Efficiency of the modified Sims maternal position in the rotation of persistent occiput posterior position during labor: A randomized clinical trial
DiscussionThe modified Sims position is a maternal posture intervention efficient in POP rotation, which decreases cesarean delivery rate. It is a simple and noninvasive intervention, reproducible, and well tolerated by pregnant women. (Source: Birth)

Trends and predictors of cesarean birth in Singapore, 2005 ‐2014: A population‐based cohort study
ConclusionCesarean birth has continued to rise at a steady rate in Singapore. Strategies to curb this temporal increase include avoidance of medically unnecessary primary cesarean and attempts at trial of labor and vaginal delivery among women with a history of prior cesarean. (Source: Birth)

Evaluation of factors contributing to the decline in exclusive breastfeeding at 6  months postpartum: The 2011‐2016 National Surveys in Taiwan
ConclusionsMaternal and environmental factors in the study could not explain the decline in exclusive breastfeeding. The decline in exclusive breastfeeding, accompanying the increase in partial breastfeeding, suggests that more support is needed for mothers who intend to breastfeed exclusively. (Source: Birth)

Home birth integration into the health care systems of eleven international jurisdictions
ConclusionsThis paper is the first to propose criteria for the evaluation of home birth integration within larger maternity care systems. Application of these criteria across 11 international jurisdictions indicates differences in the recognition and training of home birth practitioners, in access to hospital facilities, and in the supplies and equipment available at home births, which give rise to variation in the level of integration across different settings. Standardized criteria for the evaluation of systems integration are essential for interpreting planned home birth outcomes that emerge from contextual differences. (Source: Birth)
