BACKGROUND: Becoming a competent midwife is a complex process. The aim of midwifery education is to support the development of competence in midwifery skills, knowledge and to prepare graduates to meet the responsibilities inherent in the midwifery role. AIM: To explore the experiences of our alumni midwives, ask how well they perceived their midwifery programme had prepared them for beginning midwifery practice and to identify any curriculum changes, or postgraduate study topics, that would support the transition to midwifery practice...

PROBLEM: Interprofessional training programs for obstetric emergencies have been introduced for up-skilling birth unit staff in hospitals but not frequently used in training midwives and paramedicine staff for home birth emergency. BACKGROUND: Practical Obstetric Multiprofessional Training (PROMPT) has previously been described in the home birth setting using in-situ simulation training of home births for midwifery and paramedicine staff. AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate the benefit of the home birth simulation in clinical practice and to explore how the simulation program prepared the midwives for a birth-related emergency in a publicly funded home birth program...

REVIEW
Li Thies-Lagergren, Margareta Johansson
BACKGROUND: Parents' birth experiences affect bonding with their infant, which in turn may influence the child's future health. Parents' satisfaction with childbirth is multi-dimensional and dependent on both expectations and experiences. Increasing involvement of partners in intrapartum care may lead to an assumption that the birthing couple shares attitudes and expectations of intrapartum care. There is a limited knowledge regarding the uniformity of couples' experiences of labour and birth...

Katy Wyles, Yvette D Miller
BACKGROUND: Communication with maternity care providers is one of the strongest predictors of the perceived quality of maternity care. There is evidence that older mothers experience better communication than younger mothers, but no evidence for why this occurs. AIM: To identify differences between younger (<35 years) and older (35+ years) mother's perceived quality of communication and any apparent age-related differences. METHODS: We analysed cross-sectional data from 2504 first-time mothers in the Having a Baby in Queensland Survey 2012...

BACKGROUND: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) can lead to adverse birth outcomes, but its effect on postnatal depression has not been thoroughly investigated, especially in Asian populations. AIM: To determine the prospective association between GDM and postnatal depressive symptoms in Western China. METHODS: A prospective cohort study of 1449 mothers was conducted in Chengdu, capital city of Sichuan Province. GDM was diagnosed during pregnancy using oral glucose tolerance tests...

Megan Cooper, Jane Warland, Helen McCutcheon
BACKGROUND: Water immersion for labour and birth is an option that is increasingly favoured by women. Australian water immersion policies and guidelines commonly specify that practitioners, such as midwives, must undertake further education and training to become accredited. METHOD: A three-phase mixed methods approach was used. Phase one used critical discourse analysis to determine who or what informs policies and guidelines related to water immersion for labour and/or birth...

PROBLEM: Identifying pregnant women whose children are at risk of poorer development in a rapid, acceptable and feasible way. BACKGROUND: A range of antenatal psychosocial and socioeconomic risk factors adversely impact children's health, behaviour and cognition. AIM: Investigate whether a brief, waiting room survey of risk factors identifies women experiencing increased antenatal psychosocial and socioeconomic risk when asked in a private, in-home interview...

Andrea Henning Cruickshank, Thomas S Lilley, Barbara Radcliffe, Vili Nosa, Jennifer Fenwick
BACKGROUND: Many childbearing women from Māori and Pasifika backgrounds living in the Logan region of Queensland, Australia experience poor health outcomes. Compared to the general population of childbearing women, Māori and Pasifika women are more likely to experience gestational diabetes mellitus and obesity, are less likely to attend recommended antenatal visits and present for initial antenatal visits at later gestations. AIM: To describe women's awareness of maternity service options, explore the barriers to participating in pregnancy care and identify possible enablers to improved uptake of services...

Natasha R Donnolley, Georgina M Chambers, Kerryn A Butler-Henderson, Michael G Chapman, Elizabeth Sullivan
BACKGROUND: The Maternity Care Classification System is a novel system developed in Australia to classify models of maternity care based on their characteristics. It will enable large-scale evaluations of maternal and perinatal outcomes under different models of care independently of the model's name. AIM: To assess the accuracy, repeatability and reproducibility of the Maternity Care Classification System. METHOD: All 70 public maternity services in New South Wales, Australia, were invited to classify three randomly allocated model case-studies using a web-based survey tool and repeat their classifications 4-6 weeks later...

Clare Bellhouse, Meredith Temple-Smith, Shaun Watson, Jade Bilardi
BACKGROUND: Miscarriage is a common event in Australia and is estimated to occur in up to one in four confirmed pregnancies. Prior research has demonstrated that miscarriage is associated with significant distress, grief and loss, and in some cases clinically significant levels of depression, anxiety, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Despite these consequences for women's emotional and mental health, studies have commonly found that women feel that healthcare providers often lack empathy, support, and acknowledgement of their loss...

Erin R Morgan, Audrey E Hu, Audrey M V Brezak, Seth S Rowley, Alyson J Littman, Stephen E Hawes
BACKGROUND: Breech presentation affects approximately 3% of women with singleton pregnancies. External cephalic version is a manual procedure that reorients a foetus to cephalic position in preparation for birth, reducing indications for caesarean birth. However, unsuccessful attempts are associated with some adverse health outcomes. Versions are successful in 17-86% of attempts. Temporal trends in version success and association between maternal height or prenatal care and version success are unknown...

Kathrin Stoll, Joyce Edmonds, Michelle Sadler, Gill Thomson, Judith McAra-Couper, Emma M Swift, Anne Malott, Joana Streffing, Mechthild M Gross, Soo Downe
PROBLEM & AIM: Cultural beliefs that equate birth technology with progress, safety and convenience contribute to widespread acceptance of childbirth technology and interventions. Little is known about attitudes towards childbirth technology and interventions among the next generation of maternity care users and whether attitudes vary by country, age, gender, childbirth fear, and other factors. METHODS: Data were collected via online survey in eight countries...

#17
Leonie Hewitt, Holly Priddis, Hannah G Dahlen
BACKGROUND: Despite well-known benefits of continuity of midwifery care, less than 10% of women have access to this model of care in Australia. Staff retention and satisfaction are strongly related to the quality of management; however, little is known about the attributes required to effectively manage a midwifery group practice. PURPOSE: To explore the attributes midwifery group practice managers require to be effective managers and how these attributes can be developed to promote service sustainability...

Adele Baldwin, Clare Harvey, Eileen Willis, Bridget Ferguson, Tanya Capper
BACKGROUND: High-risk pregnancy, or one with escalating complexities, requires the inclusion of numerous health professions in care provision. A strategy of midwife navigators to facilitate the smooth transition across models of care and service providers has now been in place in Queensland, Australia, for over twelve months, and a formal review process will soon begin. Navigators are experienced nurses or midwives who have the expertise and authority to support childbearing women with chronic or complex problems through the health system so that it is co-ordinated and they can transition to self-care...

https://www.readbyqxmd.com/read/30145165/improving-student-midwives-workplace-learning-by-moving-from-self-to-co-regulated-learning
#19
M Embo, M Valcke
BACKGROUND: Contemporary perspectives on regulated learning are moving beyond models, emphasising individual learning (self-regulated learning) to models that position social transactions at the core of learning (co-regulated learning). In discussing this paradigm shift, it is important to study self- and co-regulated learning in situational context but research in the context of midwifery education is scarce. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to improve our understanding of regulating midwifery students' learning by exploring factors that promote or inhibit the capacity to independently self-regulate learning during internships...

PROBLEM: Although prenatal depression is a risk factor for postpartum depression, current screening tools for prenatal depression fail to predict postpartum depression in some marginalized populations. BACKGROUND: The assessment of other risk factors along with prenatal depression may be needed to improve prediction of postpartum depression and these risk factors may be specific to immigrants. AIMS: We investigated the predictive utility of several measures in relation to postpartum depressive symptoms in: recent immigrants, less recent immigrants and Canadian-born women...
