BACKGROUND: While the physical health risks of obesity during pregnancy for women are well understood, little is known about the mental health implications. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI) and symptoms of antenatal depression and anxiety. METHODS: Secondary analysis of cross-sectional data contributed by the younger cohort (born 1973-78) of the Australian Longitudinal Study of Women's Health who were pregnant at the time of the survey (Waves 4-6: aged 28-39years)...

PROBLEM: Postpartum depression affects many women globally, yet rates of treatment use are low. A comprehensive view of factors associated with treatment use, from women's and providers' perspectives, based on a theoretical model is lacking. BACKGROUND: Several studies examined various factors associated with postpartum depression service use; however, each study focused on a small number of factors. AIM: This study describes a systematic literature review based on the Behavioral Model of Health Service Use...

BACKGROUND: Discourses around the journey to motherhood in many poorly-resourced countries, particularly in the sub-Saharan African region, with no link to death and danger are limited. The custodians of traditional practices - the traditional birth attendants - are often blamed for the high maternal deaths in this region. Conventional institutional and international thinking about traditional birth attendants is that they are dangerous and therefore should no longer be allowed to practice...

BACKGROUND: Theoretical models as a basis for midwives' care have been developed over recent decades. Although there are similarities between these models, their usefulness in practice needs to be researched in specific cultural contexts. AIM: To explore whether, when adopted by midwives on labour wards, a midwifery model of woman-centred care (MiMo) was useful in practice from the viewpoint of a variety of health professionals. METHODS: Data were collected from a variety of health professionals before and after an intervention of implementating MiMo at a hospital-based labour ward in Sweden, using nine focus group interviews with a total of 43 participants: midwives (n=16), obstetricians (n=8), assistant nurses (n=11) and managers (n=8)...

BACKGROUND: Woman-centred care is a philosophy for midwifery care management of the childbearing woman. There is no mutually recognised internalised way in midwifery to provide woman-centred care. OBJECTIVE: To reveal midwives' distinct perspectives about woman-centred care. METHODS: A Q-methodology study amongst 48 Dutch community-based midwives who rank-ordered 39 statements on woman-centred care, followed by semi-structured interviews to motivate their ranking...

REVIEW

BACKGROUND: Birth positions may influence the risk of tears in the genital tract during birth. Birth positions are widely studied yet knowledge on genital tract tears following birth on a birth seat is inconclusive. AIM: The objective of this study was to describe the proportion of genital tract tears in women who gave birth on a birth seat compared to women who did not. METHOD: An observational cohort study based on birth information collected prospectively...

AIM: Determine the incidence of midwives indicating their intention to leave the profession and explore the reasons for this decision including what might cause midwives to be dissatisfied. METHOD: Data analysed was collected as part of the Australian arm of the Work, Health and Emotional Life of Midwives (WHELM) project...

BACKGROUND: In order to internalize the midwifery philosophy of care and to learn how to advocate for physiological childbirth, student midwives in the Netherlands need learning experiences that expose them to physiological childbirth practices. Increased hospital births, wide variation in non-urgent referrals and escalating interventions impact on learning opportunities for physiological childbirth. Midwifery educators need to find ways to support student agency in becoming advocates of physiological childbirth...

BACKGROUND: Social support is essential in both the transition to motherhood and maternal role development. With diminishing access to traditional communities of motherhood wisdom, women struggle to access this information in their tangible worlds.

BACKGROUND: Although primarily stemming from research conducted in high-income countries, culturally sensitive knowledge of women's experiences with and needs during childbirth, as well as how such experiences affect their psychological health and wellbeing, is important to add to the big picture of women's experiences with childbirth worldwide.

METHODS: Grounded theory guided depth-interviews with 12 women, whose data were analysed according to the constant comparative method...

PROBLEM: There are currently 429 midwives in Australia who hold the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia's Endorsement for scheduled medicines for midwives. Little is known about how midwives are using the endorsement and what factors impact on its use. OBJECTIVE: To critically examine the literature to discover what the barriers and enablers are for midwives to use the endorsement.

BACKGROUND: Utilization of maternal health care services and timely initiation of antenatal care (ANC) positively influence pregnancy outcomes. The prevalence of intimate partner violence (IPV) during pregnancy is very high in Ethiopia, but we have limited knowledge on the link between IPV and initiation of ANC. AIM: To determine the association between IPV and late entry into ANC. METHODS: A cross sectional study was conducted among pregnant women attending ANC at the governmental health institutions...

José Sanders
BACKGROUND: Increasingly, pregnant women, as active online media users, incorporate media driven values on childbirth that may not agree with professional midwifery values. In Dutch midwifery practice, online searching for other women's stories is often discouraged. However, online birth stories attract women as a means to learn from one another's experiences of childbirth. AIM: This study aims to explore Dutch women's use of an online social media platform (Instagram) to represent childbirth by analyzing their narrative strategies...
