BACKGROUND: Australia experiences high breastfeeding initiation but low duration rates. UNICEF introduced the global breastfeeding strategy, the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative, to Australia in 1992, transferring governance to the Australian College of Midwives (ACM) in 1995. In 2017 23% of facilities were registered as 'baby-friendly' accredited.

METHODS: The study sample consisted of 62 pregnant women who attended the Gynaecology Service at Hospital ​Santa María del Puerto (Cádiz, Spain), between January 2013 and May 2014.

PROBLEM: Supplementation of breastfed babies is common during the hospital stay. BACKGROUND: The Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) optimises practices to support exclusive breastfeeding, yet supplementation is still prevalent. OBJECTIVE: To determine predictors for supplementation in a cohort of breastfed babies in a Baby-Friendly hospital. METHODS: Electronic hospital records of 1530 healthy term or near term singleton infants and their mothers were examined retrospectively and analysed to identify factors associated with in-hospital supplementation using Poisson regression (unadjusted and adjusted)...

Laura A Zinsser
BACKGROUND: The positive effects of delayed cord clamping (DCC) has been extensively researched. DCC means: waiting at least one minute after birth before clamping and cutting the cord or till the pulsation has stopped. With physiological clamping and cutting (PCC) the clamping and cutting can happen at the earliest after the pulsation has stopped. With a Lotus birth, no clamping and cutting of the cord is done. A woman called Clair Lotus Day imitated the holistic approach of PCC from an anthropoid ape in 1974...

BACKGROUND: Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are among the leading causes of maternal morbidity and mortality. Studies suggest that the use of folic acid may lower the risk of hypertensive disorders in pregnant women. AIM: The aim of this study was to assess the effects of timing and duration of folic acid-containing supplement use on the risk for gestational hypertension and preeclampsia. METHODS: Exposures and outcomes data were obtained through interviews and review of participant's medical records from the MotherToBaby cohort studies across the United States and Canada...

BACKGROUND: Information and communication technologies are increasingly used in health care to meet demands of efficiency, safety and patient-centered care. At a large Danish regional hospital, women report their physical, mental health and personal needs prior to their first antenatal visit. Little is known about the process of self-reporting health, and how this information is managed during the client-professional meeting. AIM: To explore women's experiences of self-reporting their health status and personal needs online prior to the first midwifery visit, and how this information may affect the meeting between the woman and the midwife...

PROBLEM: The rate and severity of postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) are increasing, according to research reports and clinical anecdote, causing a significant health burden for Australian women giving birth. However, reporting a national Australian rate is not possible due to inconsistent reporting of PPH. BACKGROUND: Clinician concerns about the incidence and severity of PPH are growing. Midwives contribute perinatal data on every birth, yet published population-based data on PPH seems to be limited...

REVIEW
Zoe Bradfield, Ravani Duggan, Yvonne Hauck, Michelle Kelly
BACKGROUND: Midwives being 'with woman' is embedded in professional philosophy, standards of practice and partnerships with women. In light of the centrality of being 'with woman' to the profession of midwifery, it is timely to review the literature to gain a contemporary understanding of this phenomenon. AIM: This review synthesises research and theoretical literature to report on what is known and published about being 'with woman'. METHODS: A five step framework for conducting an integrative literature reviews was employed...

BACKGROUND: The 2007 United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples states that Indigenous peoples have the right to self-determination for social and cultural development. This fundamental right has been impeded worldwide through colonisation where many Indigenous peoples have had to adapt to ensure continuation of cultural knowledge and practice. In South East Australia colonisation was particularly brutal interrupting a 65,000 year-old oral culture and archives have increasing importance for cultural revival...

PROBLEM AND BACKGROUND: In an earlier research project midwives were asked to perform women-centered care focusing on the assumption that the physiological process in the second stage of labour could be trusted and that the midwives role should be encouraging and supportive rather than instructing. There is no knowledge about how midwives participating in such a research project, uses their skills and experience from the study in their daily work. AIM: The aim in this study was to investigate how midwives experienced implementing woman-centered care during second stage of labour...
