BACKGROUND: Shortening pre-hospital delay may decrease stillbirth rates and rates of babies born with a compromised health. Stillbirth may be preceded by a decrease in fetal movements. Mindfetalness has been developed as a response to the shortcomings of kick-counting for the monitoring of fetal movements by the pregnant woman. We do not know if practicing Mindfetalness may diminish pre-hospital delay. Nor do we know if practicing Mindfetalness may increase or decrease the percentage of women seeking health care for unfounded, from a medical perspective, worry for her fetus' well-being...

Antenatal education in small classes may increase childbirth self-efficacy. In this randomised trial we assessed the effect of a structured antenatal programme versus auditorium-based lectures on childbirth self-efficacy measured by three single items. We found that women in the intervention group reported statistically significant higher levels of confidence in their ability to cope at home during labour compared to the control group. Likewise, the intervention had a positive effect on the women's confidence in own ability to handle the birth process...

BACKGROUND: Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) or female circumcision is the procedure of eliminating some or all parts of the external female genitalia. FGM/C is carried out by traditional circumcisers. They usually use cutting tools like a blade or straight-razor. Although FGM/C is well described in the African continent and some Arabic countries, data from Iran are scarce. OBJECTIVES: The major objective of this current study was to investigate the effects of FGM/C on the female sexual function of married women compared to the non-circumcised women in the Kurdistan province of Iran...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the effects of different predictors on the incidence and severity of postpartum depression (PPD) symptoms in a Thai population. METHODS: In this case control study we delineate the clinical, demographic and socio-economic risk factors associated with PPD symptoms. We used the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) 4-6 weeks postpartum to divide parturients into those with (n = 53) and without (n = 260) PPD using a cutoff score of 11...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether new national guidelines of routine induction of labour and increased surveillance in low risk pregnancies at 41(+2-5) weeks of gestation as an alternative to expectant management until 42(+0) weeks of gestation has improved perinatal outcome. METHODS: A questionnaire-based study regarding local induction practices among all Danish delivery units and a cross-sectional population-based registry study based on data from the Danish Medical Birth Registry (DMBR) in the years 2009-2012...

OBJECTIVE: To explore health care providers' experiences of providing care to immigrant women seeking abortion care. METHODS: A qualitative study including interviews with ten midwives and three medical doctors at four abortion clinics in the Stockholm area. Interviews were analysed using thematic analysis. RESULTS: Initially, health care providers were reluctant to make statements concerning the specific needs among immigrant women. Yet, the health care providers sometimes found it challenging to deal with the specific needs among immigrant, mostly non-European, women...

Evidence exists for titration of intravenous oxytocin during induction and augmentation, whereas no evidence was identified for titration of intravenous oxytocin following vaginal birth, where management excluded oxytocin for postpartum haemorrhage (PPH). This retrospective cohort study explored this issue through patient case notes and computerised perinatal data. Analysis included 335 women comparing induction (n = 226, 67%) to augmentation (n = 109, 33%). The two groups differed in terms of: parity; oxytocin dosage; length of time on intravenous oxytocin; and the length of first and second stage labour...

BACKGROUND: In Sweden expectant fathers are now assumed to be active participants in pregnancy and birth, but few studies have focused on fathers' expectations of antenatal care. Knowledge of expectant fathers' views about what is important in antenatal care will enable the design of care that is more inclusive and meets the expectant fathers' needs. OBJECTIVES: To identify expectant fathers' expectations regarding the content of antenatal care during pregnancy and to examine associations between expectations and social factors...

BACKGROUND: A nursing record focused on sexual health care for patients with cancer could encourage oncology nurses to provide sexual health care for oncology patients in a simple and effective manner. However, existing electronic information systems focus on professional use and not sexual health care, which could lead to inefficiencies in clinical practice. OBJECTIVE: To examine the effects of a sexual health care nursing record on the attitudes and practice of oncology nurses...
