INTRODUCTION: The Kenyan government has committed to increasing access to comprehensive reproductive, maternal, neonatal and child health (RMNCH) services. However, inequalities still exist. Women who inject drugs are an important sub-population for public health interventions, yet their RMNCH needs have largely been overlooked. Additionally, there is a lack of research to inform RMNCH interventions for this sub-population. METHODS: In 2015, we undertook interviews and focus group discussions with 45 women who inject drugs and five key stakeholders to understand these women's RMNCH experiences and needs...

INTRODUCTION: Repeated induced abortion (RIA) is a challenging public health issue. Although many studies have investigated the characteristics of women who experience multiple abortions, most have focused only on limited intrapersonal variables. To frame the analysis, this study used an ecological model integrating intrapersonal, interpersonal and environmental variables to explore factors associated with RIA. METHODS: Single-site (Maternal and Child Health Hospital, Hubei, China) cross-sectional data were collected from 405 women between July 2015 and November 2015 using a self-administered questionnaire...

OBJECTIVE: To identify and explore processes midwives use to exercise their scope of practice whilst caring for women during normal birth. METHODS: Strauss and Corbin's (1998) grounded theory approach was used. Data were collected from 17 midwife participants using participant observation of women's labour and birth care followed by semi-structured interviews. RESULTS: The core category of promoting normal birthing: aspiring to develop a midwife-led scope of practice conceptualises midwives working to develop their scope of practice to promote and facilitate normal birthing for women...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the prevalence and severity of haemorrhoids after birth among first-time mothers in relation to management during the second stage of labour and to describe the women's experiences with haemorrhoids. METHOD: A mixed method explanatory sequential design was used. Nulliparous women were allocated to an intervention group for whom the second-stage of labour practice followed the MIMA model (Midwives management during second stage of labour) or to a control group for whom standard-care practice was followed...

OBJECTIVE: The aim was to describe Swedish midwives' experiences of working with home birth. METHODS: Two focus group interviews were conducted with eight home birth-attending midwives. Data were analysed with qualitative content analysis. RESULTS: Four main categories were identified: the birth as a meaningful moment; to fully focus on the birth; to practise the craft; and not to be part of the health care system. The midwives viewed childbirth as a significant moment that should be conducted on the woman's terms...

OBJECTIVE: Fatigue and decreased functional status are common health concerns during postpartum. Although studied separately in the past, this study assessed levels and explored the relationship between these two variables. METHODS: A cross-sectional correlational study was conducted with a convenience sample of 315 women to measure levels and assess the association between fatigue and functional status during postpartum. RESULTS: Moderate levels of fatigue and functional status were found...

AIM: This definitive and cross-sectional study was conducted to determine the relation between mothers' types of labor, birth interventions, birth experiences and postpartum depression. METHODS: A total of 1010 mothers who gave birth in four different provinces of Turkey were chosen to participate in the study via purposive sampling method Results: The Edinburgh Postpartum Depression Scale score was determined to be 13 and over in 36.4% of the women. In this study, it was determined that the Edinburgh Postpartum Depression Scale scores for women in the 18-24 age group who had a vaginal birth, did not have health insurance, experienced health problems during pregnancy and were not trained about type of labor during pregnancy were statistically higher...

Research investigating childbearing women's use of digital technology focuses on pregnancy and parenting, with none examining usage during labour. We explored the importance of having a mobile phone and how it was used in birth suite. This cohort study utilised women on a postnatal ward. Women (n = 300) who felt it was important to have a mobile phone were more likely than those who did not, to use their phone for social media and within an hour of birth. Few women used their phone whilst feeding their baby or felt phone usage would impact on quality time with their baby...

BACKGROUND: In India, pregnant women and recently delivered mothers of marginalized communities in Uttar Pradesh (UP) remain un-reached by frontline-health-workers. In these communities, self-help groups (SHGs) have the potential to reach these women with knowledge of home-based maternal and newborn care (HBMNC). OBJECTIVE: The study examines the feasibility of SHGs to improve knowledge of HBMNC. The study identifies the facilitating factors and barriers to knowledge change...

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...

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. Photo documentation of the wound was available just before the early secondary repair and at the follow-up visit after the repair...

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...
