The incidence of bleeding, preeclampsia and heart disease has always been the 3 biggest causes of maternal death in the Indonesia, pathophysiologically the incidence of bleeding, preeclampsia and heart disease are can be avoided, because it
can be detected as early as possible during prenatal care by health workers before the occurrence become more severe conditions in pregnant women.
This study aims to identify the implementation of pregnancy care carried out by midwives in Indonesia based on 10T antenatal care standards. The standard of pregnancy care that has been implemented at this time is the standard 10T care which consists of measuring body weight and height, checking blood pressure, examining the height of the fundus uterus, screening TT immunization status, Fe supplementation, determining nutritional status, laboratory tests, determination of presentation and fetal heart rate, risk management and health education.
This research is a quantitative descriptive study using a blind observation research method in which midwives do not know that they are being the subject of research, this is conducted to maintain the objectivity of the implementation of pregnancy care carried out by midwives.
Sample of this study are 70 midwives in Indonesia, Data collection was conducted by 1 midwifery student as an observer, who had been trained in how to assess midwifery care. The research was carried out for 6 months with consideration of ethical research under the Department of research and community empowerment of Singaperbangsa Karawang University (Unsika), this research fully funded by Unsika.

Student midwives’ clinical practice is crucial during the midwifery education, in order to develop midwifery skills and to provide a high standard of care during the childbearing continuum and within the obstetric, neonatal and gynecological areas. The experience placements during the midwifery training, in Italy and abroad, shaped the idea of this project. The aim is to make visible the professional values learned during the workplace training. The project will be a video addressed to students midwives showing interviews and pictures taken during the learning experiences of previous students. The video will last 20 minutes. Following this, an interactive discussion on the topics covered into the video, will start. This will provide opportunities to encourage active learning between students midwives from different European countries Therefore, the internship experiences all over the World, could be an important occasion for “world student Midwives” to share different values, cultures and visions.

Presented in English and Italian.
All infants, even healthy full-terms, undergo routine diagnostic and therapeutic painful procedures as part of routine medical care and non-pharmacologic measures should be adopted to reduce the pain sensation. We have studied in 61 healthy full-term neonates the different analgesic effect of three non-pharmacologic interventions [Breastfeeding combined with Skin-to-Skin Contact (BF+SSC), Oral Glucose 10% (OG) and Maternal Holding plus Swaddling (MH+SW)] during heel prick for metabolic screening, evaluating both NIPS score and physiological parameters variations [Heart Rate (HR) and Oxygen Saturation (SpO2) by pulse oxymeter]. Our clinical and physiological data suggest that the combination of maternal-infant relationship with oral stimulation provides the deepest analgesia. BF is based on the unique primary relationship between the mother and her newborn and it provides a natural multisensorial stimulation, so it is possible to suppose that BF+SSC should be considered the optimal non-pharmacologic measure to manage the procedural pain in healthy full-term infants.

Our talk will cover journeys women make to get to Europe and the perils associated with that, what the Greek maternity services provide to women and what charitable organisations do to plug the gap in accessible services. We will focus particularly on our experiences of volunteering with Amurtel, a charitable organisation run by women for women. Amurtel not only provide maternity care and excellent infant feeding support but most vitally a safe space for women to come together, make friends, and build a support network for themselves and their families.

Description: Homebirths assisted by Professional Regulated Midwives is becoming more popular in Argentina. The current challenges are: the need of more Regulated Midwives who can provide homebirths, a law legislation and a formal partnership with the health system. From the Argentinian Association of Independent Midwives, we work on training, empower anf gather together all Midwives from different parties. The Model of Care is interesting, as there are good outcomes regardless of not being formally integrated within the Health System. This model challenges the actual Medical system and is the expression of sexual and reproductive rights of women and their families,based on informed choice.
Speakers: 8 midwife students – Jennifer Glorioso, Tristen Holloway, Heather Hass, Katie Etherington, Liliana Correa, Amy White, Blythe Eberle, Kristal Velazquez – and Professor Jeanne Jacobwitz, CNM, MPH, MSN and Dr. Cindy Farley, CNM, PhD, FACNM

Description: Eight students and two faculty in the Nurse-Midwifery/WHNP program at Georgetown University will present a brief summary of the culture they selected to explore, the dish they prepared, and their learning about the intersection of food, culture, and the childbearing year. Professor Jacobwitz will introduce this session and Dr. Cindy Farley will close; they will share the importance of experiential learning assignments that engage midwifery students and faculty in collaborative projects.
Food is an important aspect of culture, as unique to a culture as its language. In order to give nutritional advice that is sound and acceptable, students need to understand a woman’s dietary preferences, access to food, and ability to store and prepare food. Exploring cuisines and cooking techniques of various cultures can inform a provider’s dietary counseling with practical and palatable suggestions designed to nourish women’s bodies in the childbearing year when nutrition is critical to positive health outcomes. A learning activity, called “Celebrating Cultural Diversity in Childbearing”, included an experiential component. Students selected a specific cultural group, and described food prescriptions for childbearing women of this culture, identified a recipe related to this belief, cooked and photographed the finished dish, and contributed their recipe to a self-published cookbook.

Our study aimed at the identification of the determinants of obstetrical violence and the understanding of the way the new mother perceived the care given to them during that delicate stage of their lives in that maternity. The place of study was chosen because it is a place that receives a lot of students (physician, midwives, nurse, etc) and is a referral hospital. We realised a quantitative analysis from the data collected among the 30 health workers and a qualitative analysis from the data collected through the 18 observations (done with the RMC chart) and the 7 interviews conducted with the new mothers. From the results we discovered that institutional determinants are the first impacting the manifestation of obstetrical violence but we also have psychological, sociocultural and educational determinants. In a context like ours, it is almost taboo to talk about this topic.

This presentation will discuss the impact of the Intercultural Community Dialogues initiative implemented by Management Sciences for Health and the Mexico National Safe Motherhood Committee . The methodology, previously validated among indigenous communities in Bolivia, was replicated in April 2018 in Acatepec, Guerrero, in a state hospital that offers maternity health services. Launched through five focus groups composed of diverse local midwifery stakeholders, a series of facilitated dialogues were held, resulting in commitments to: integrate traditional and professional midwives into the health team; develop standard protocols for maternity care that incorporate midwifery and intercultural health services; and increase demand and access to facility-based care for the community. As of October 2018, the hospital’s director has implemented concrete changes that reflect these commitments and that recognize the importance and role of indigenous midwives, put the mother at the center of labor and delivery, and ultimately increase respectful maternity care.
