OBJECTIVE: Mothers who have negative breastfeeding experiences due to initial breastfeeding difficulties are in demanding existential situations. Therefore, it is important for healthcare professionals to identify and address such breastfeeding problems. The aim of this study was to develop an instrument designed to assess existential aspects of mothers' initial breastfeeding difficulties and evaluate its psychometric properties. METHODS: This study reports on the development of a new instrument and was carried out in three steps: (1) a questionnaire about various existential aspects of initial breastfeeding difficulties, based on 66 items derived from two phenomenological studies, was developed; (2) information was collected using the questionnaire; (3) and the resulting data were statistically analysed...

OBJECTIVE: The life expectancy of women with cystic fibrosis (CF) has increased, enabling many to reach reproductive age. However, little is known about the childbearing concerns and information needs of women with CF or their preferences for information about the effect of their condition and its treatment on childbearing. The aim of this study was to identify the childbearing concerns and related information needs and preferences of women with CF. METHODS: To ensure access to a diverse group of women with CF throughout Australia and to minimise the risk of cross infection, an online group was advertised and convened on Facebook from October through December 2017...

OBJECTIVE: Fear of childbirth is a well-known problem affecting women's wellbeing and health. The prevalence of intense fear varies across countries from 4.8 to 14.8%. During the past 25 years in Sweden women with intense fear of childbirth have been offered counselling at specialised clinics staffed by midwives. Although the counselling demonstrates positive results, the training, education, supervision and organisation differ between clinics. It is still unclear which approaches and practices are the most beneficial...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Based on the four-corner stone of population and development programmes recognized by ICPD (1994) this paper envisages the relationship between the recent waves of women's empowerment anduse of contraceptive methods in India. DATA AND METHODS: Findings are based on two rounds of NFHS (3 & 4). Liberson's Diversity Index has been used to assess the inequality in women's empowerment. Multiple regression analysis is used to portray the relationship and logistic regression is used to access the adjusted effects of various dimensions of women's empowerment on use of contraception...

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...
