INTRODUCTION: Few studies have compared midwife-led and physician-led care in the United States. Our objective was to compare the frequency of birth interventions and maternal and neonatal outcomes between women who received prenatal care from a midwife and those who received care from a physician, among women who were low risk when they initiated prenatal care. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of women giving birth at a large public hospital who had at least one prenatal visit before 20 weeks' gestation in the years 2012 through 2015...

INTRODUCTION: The postpartum period can be a challenging experience for many women as they adjust to the physical and social changes after childbirth. Mindfulness-based interventions have been developed for stress reduction in a variety of health contexts, including pregnancy. These interventions provide strategies that may help new mothers handle the physical, emotional, and relationship challenges of the postpartum period and increase acceptance of postpartum physical changes and body image...

INTRODUCTION: Primary dysmenorrhea is a prevalent condition causing quality of life (QOL) reduction for many women, resulting from pain as well as parallel social and psychological distress. Yoga reduces pain and sympathetic reactivity, thus promoting QOL. This article reports a systematic review of the evidence for the effectiveness of yoga as a QOL improvement method for women with primary dysmenorrhea. METHODS: The PRISMA guidelines were used in preparation of this review...

Jonathan M Snowden, Ellen L Tilden
The causal inference framework and related methods have emerged as vital within epidemiology. This framework and associated analytic approaches facilitate the conduct of valid science using observational data. These approaches have helped catalyze knowledge development using existing data and also have addressed questions for which randomized controlled trials are neither feasible nor ethical. The study of normal childbearing processes and women who are medically low risk may benefit from more direct and deliberate engagement with the process of inferring causes and the use of methods appropriate for this undertaking...

The causal inference framework and related methods have emerged as vital within epidemiology. Scientists in many fields have found that this framework and a variety of designs and analytic approaches facilitate the conduct of strong science. These approaches have proven particularly important for catalyzing knowledge development using existing data and addressing questions for which randomized clinical trials are neither feasible nor ethical. The study of healthy women and normal childbearing processes may benefit from more direct and deliberate engagement with the process of inferring causes and, further, may be strengthened through use of methods appropriate for this undertaking...

REVIEW

In this article, we conclude our 3-part series by focusing on several concepts that have proven useful for formulating causal questions and inferring causal effects. The process of causal inference is of key importance for physiologic childbirth science, so each concept is grounded in content related to women at low risk for perinatal complications. A prerequisite to causal inference is determining that the question of interest is causal rather than descriptive or predictive. Another critical step in defining a high-impact causal question is assessing the state of existing research for evidence of causality...

INTRODUCTION: Access to quality care is a problem in Texas, an ethnically diverse state with large birth numbers. The state has over 300 areas designated as medically underserved, and a severe lack of obstetricians and midwives. Minimal data exist on midwifery's contribution, and no known study compares the work environment and clinical practice of the 2 state-recognized midwifery paths, licensed midwives (LMs) and certified nurse-midwives (CNMs). The purpose of this study was to determine the differences in practice by CNMs and LMs, the latter of whom are generally certified professional midwives...

REVIEW
Carrie E Neerland
INTRODUCTION: Confidence is a term often used in research literature and consumer media in relation to birth, but maternal confidence has not been clearly defined, especially as it relates to physiologic labor and birth. The aim of this concept analysis was to define maternal confidence in the context of physiologic labor and childbirth. METHODS: Rodgers' evolutionary method was used to identify attributes, antecedents, and consequences of maternal confidence for physiologic birth...

INTRODUCTION: This article provides an account of the establishment and development of the contemporary nurse-midwifery profession in Georgia, which was previously undocumented. Oral history interviews with nurse-midwives who were in clinical and educational practice in Georgia during the 1970s and 1980s were collected and analyzed to identify factors that affected the establishment of nurse-midwifery in this state. METHODS: This study relied on historical methodology...

INTRODUCTION: Breastfeeding rates in the United States continue to fall short of Healthy People 2020 goals. Bedsharing has been promoted as a way of increasing breastfeeding durations. METHODS: We used prospectively collected Oregon Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS) and PRAMS-2 data from 2276 women to explore whether bedsharing frequency predicts age at weaning. Bedsharing was assessed at 14 weeks after birth (PRAMS), and duration of breastfeeding was assessed at 2 years after birth (PRAMS-2)...

INTRODUCTION: Although the definition of a short interbirth interval has been inconsistent in the literature, Healthy People 2020 recommends that women wait at least 18 months after a live birth before attempting their next pregnancy. In the United States, approximately 33% of pregnancies are conceived within 18 months of a previous birth. Pregnancies that result from short interbirth intervals can pose serious risks. The objective of this study was to determine the association between interbirth interval and understudied pregnancy complications and outcomes, including small for gestational age (SGA) infants, premature rupture of membranes (PROM), preterm PROM (PPROM), placenta previa, and gestational diabetes, using Pregnancy Risk Assessment and Monitoring System data from Mississippi and Tennessee...

REVIEW
Samantha Lawson, Ashley Sacks
Pelvic floor dysfunction is defined as abnormal function of the pelvic floor and includes conditions that can have significant adverse impacts on a woman's quality of life, including urinary incontinence (stress, urge, and mixed), fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, sexual dysfunction, diastasis recti abdominis, pelvic girdle pain, and chronic pain syndromes. Women's health care providers can screen for, identify, and treat pelvic floor dysfunction. This article examines the case of a woman with multiple pelvic-floor-related problems and presents the evidence for the use of pelvic floor physical therapy (PFPT) for pregnancy-related pelvic floor dysfunction...

INTRODUCTION: Postponing hospital admission until the active phase of labor is a recommended strategy to safely reduce the incidence of primary cesarean births. Success of this strategy depends on women's decisions about when to transfer from home to the hospital, a process that is largely absent from research about childbirth. This study aimed to determine the decision-making criteria used by women about when to go to the hospital after the self-identification of labor onset at home...

Uterine incarceration is a rare complication of pregnancy in which a retroverted uterus becomes entrapped in the pelvis. This case report describes the clinical presentation and management of a woman with a suspected uterine incarceration in the late first trimester. This article reviews the diagnosis of uterine incarceration, including differential diagnoses, signs and symptoms, and the role of imaging. Management is based on the gestational age at the time of diagnosis. Management options are described along with a discussion of the available evidence...
