REVIEW
Malin Jordal, Anna Wahlberg
Due to migration, health care needs in relation to female genital cutting (FGC) are increasingly emerging in European health care contexts, with Sweden being no exception. Recent estimates suggest that up to 38 000 girls and women with some form of FGC are living in Sweden, the majority from Somalia. Despite receiving high numbers of immigrants from FGC practising countries, health care services in many European countries seem largely unprepared in caring for circumcised patients. This literature review aims to identify challenges involved in providing quality care for circumcised women in Sweden...

This study aims to compare the profile of women who deliver at home and those who deliver at institutions with a special focus on migration status. METHODS: A list of all women who delivered between January to December 2012 was obtained from the antenatal register of a polyclinic in Chandigarh, India...

OBJECTIVES: To examine whether early secondary repair of labial tears, 1st and 2nd degree perineal lacerations and episiotomies provided an anatomically acceptable result. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective analysis of 126 women undergoing an early secondary repair of birth lacerations not involving the sphincter complex within 21 days postpartum. Patients were included from 1 January 2014 to 11 August 2017 at Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark.

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether intimate partner violence (IPV) during pregnancy is associated with increased risk of clinical factors that influence maternal to child transmission (MTCT) of HIV. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study of pregnant women living with HIV (WLHIV) who received prenatal care in a multidisciplinary perinatal HIV clinic (2007-2014). All women were assessed for IPV status during pregnancy by a social worker and/or health psychologist. Records were abstracted for obstetric information and factors associated with MTCT of HIV, including antenatal visit attendance, adherence to antiretroviral regimen, time until viral suppression after initiation of antiretroviral medications, HIV RNA at 36 weeks and at delivery, and preterm birth...

OBJECTIVES: Successful gestational weight gain (GWG) restriction programs for obese (Body Mass Index (BMI) ≥ 30 kg/m2 ) pregnant women, have not, so far, shown convincing effects on infant's weight development. An intervention starting during the pregnancy might be too late and a pre-conceptional life style change may be preferable. Thus, the aim of this study was to follow children born to mothers who had participated in a weight gain restriction program during pregnancy, and make comparisons with their younger siblings...

OBJECTIVE: The use of combined oral contraceptives (COC) as a contraceptive method is still limited in Japan, used only by 1.1% of women of reproductive age. The usage pattern of COC, such as continuation and preparation switch, between COC generations was investigated using large datasets. METHODS: This descriptive study spanning from 2006 to 2014 used nationwide prescriptions based on administrative databases, including both reimbursed and non-reimbursed drugs...

OBJECTIVES: The aims were to describe first-time mothers' confidence, mood and stress 2 and 6 months postpartum and to investigate the extent to which the tools measuring maternal confidence and maternal mood used alone or together at 2 months postpartum predict first-time maternal confidence, mood and stress 6 months postpartum. DESIGN: A cohort including 513 first-time mothers' self-reported questionnaires concerning three scales: The Karitane Parenting Confidence Scale (KPCS), the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS), and the Parental Stress Scale (PSS) collected 2 and 6 months postpartum...

BACKGROUND: Becoming a parent is often a tumultuous experience and a great challenge. The transition when a child is born is described affecting the parents and their relationship psychically, physically, mentally and emotionally. Information within care should be relevant and supportive. Furthermore information within the context of care should be relevant, supportive and helpful to parents in handling their new situation and increasing their self-reliance. AIM: To provide a contextualised understanding of how parents experience postnatal care in relation to information and sense of security"...

Brenda Baker, Irene Yang
Based on the rapidly growing use of social media and its influence on society an online survey to explore social media use and perceptions of social support was developed. A survey link or QR, quick read code was provided to new mothers in the postpartum setting of an academic medical center, posted on the hospital hosted website for new mothers and shared with Centering Pregnancy groups at the research hospital. The survey link was available for 4 weeks and 117 mothers from 64 different zip codes across the United States completed the survey...

The aim of this article is to understand nurse practitioners' conversations about men as family planning patients. METHODS: One-to-one, semi-structured interviews were conducted with five nurse practitioners.

OBJECTIVE: Alcohol use has consistently been shown to be related to sexual risk-taking behaviours. To assess what factors may contribute to the sexual risk decision-making process, this study examined the relationships among alcohol use (frequency, quantity, and binge drinking), cognitive appraisals of sexual risk taking, sex-related alcohol expectancies, and STI-protective self-efficacy. METHOD: 138 sexually-active university students who drink alcohol completed scales measuring alcohol consumption, appraisals of consequences, sex-related alcohol expectancies, and items regarding STI-protective self-efficacy...

METHODS: We interviewed 13 women aged 20-39 who had experienced an abortion and the related counselling. The women were recruited from five hospitals in Sweden.

BACKGROUND: Providing access to family planning services is a basic component and a cost-effective intervention to reduce maternal mortality worldwide. It is closely linked to women's decision-making power and female emancipation. Unmet need for family planning is thus an indicator going beyond maternal health with far reaching societal implications. This study examines the level of unmet need for family planning in Nepal and its distribution along structural determinants. METHODS: Data from the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey 2014 was utilized for analysis...

To identify measurement tools which screen for the presence of fear of birth (FOB) and to determine the most effective tool/s for use in clinical practice. Fear or birth (FOB) is internationally recognised as a cause for increasing concern, despite a lack of consensus on a definition or optimal measure of assessment. There is a wide array of FOB measurement tools, however little clarity on which tool should be used to screen for FOB in clinical practice. This review explores the use of tools that are used to screen for FOB and discusses the perceived effectiveness of such tools...

BACKGROUND: While the adverse health outcomes and broader economic and social factors associated with adolescent motherhood are well documented globally, limited research on unplanned pregnancy and birth among young women in Pacific Island nations exists. The study addresses this gap in the literature by examining the social and contextual factors that inform contraceptive knowledge, attitudes, and use among young women in the Cook Islands. METHODS: Individual, in-depth interviews were conducted with ten women who became mothers before age twenty...
