02. Dónde queda la “Equidad de Nacimiento para todos” en medio de la pandemia? (Spanish) @ Room 3, BBB

Speaker: Susana Ku

Facilitators: Paola Wilkin and Deisy Ordinola

Current pandemic has impacted all systems and has demonstrated the weaknesses of health systems around the world, highlighting the absence of health equity. In response to this phenomena, in June 2020, WHO released a guideline to call countries around the world to ensure continuity of provision of essential care services, including sexual and reproductive health. In addition to this report, different stakeholders called for actions to respect and advocate for sexual and reproductive rights. But what does this mean to Latin-American countries, where basic sexual and reproductive rights are sometimes non-existent? How can midwives advocate for women or birthing person rights in a context where gender violence is so deeply immersed in our society? The speaker will present a rapid grey literature on advocacy for sexual and reproductive rights during pandemic, then it will evolve in a series of reflections on how midwifery profession contributes to this matter.

La pandemia por covid-19 desenmascaró un sinnúmero de falencias y problemas para lo que en general, no estábamos preparados en el mundo entero. Uno de estos problemas que se evidenció es la continuidad en la formación de nuevos cuadros de profesionales de la salud.
Desde el 2019 la OMS ha visto la necesidad de usar redes sociales que son de uso muy frecuente en especial por los jóvenes y a pesar de que la pandemia a alejado a los estudiantes de los centros de formación, no es un impedimento para continuar estudios. Es por eso por lo que, desde la Escuela profesional de Obstetricia, de la Universidad San Martín de Porres, los jóvenes estudiantes se han involucrado más activamente en su formación utilizando tecnologías digitales y estrategias comunicacionales que les permite empoderarse de su formación y aprender a ser líderes, de líderes consolidados, así como apoyar y alentar desde el ciberespacio a los profesionales que se encuentran en la primera línea de atención.

05. Nacer en otro país: salud perinatal y migración en Lima-Perú (Spanish) @ Room 1, BBB

Speakers: Marlene Magallanes Corimanya and Evelyn Margott Asencios Falcón

Facilitators: María Navarro and Melisa Lescano

En los últimos años, la migración venezolana se ha extendido al mundo entero, siendo el Perú el segundo país receptor de dichos migrantes a nivel latinoamericano. El propósito de la investigación fue establecer la relación de los resultados perinatales adversos en mujeres peruanas y migrantes (la mayoría de ellas venezolanas). Se realizó un estudio observacional, retrospectivo, analítico, correlacional; de los datos del sistema de registro nacional de hechos vitales del Perú – 2018. Los resultados muestran diferencias estadísticamente significativas entre las migrantes y peruanas en relación a los partos pre-términos y mayor número de cesáreas, así como en los promedios de peso y talla al nacer, siendo desfavorables para las migrantes. Se concluye que la condición de migrante coloca a las gestantes en una situación de desventaja, siendo que las obstetras deberían considerar esta variable en los cuidados ante, pre y postnatales.

English: In recent years, Venezuelan migration has spread to the entire world, with Peru being the second receiving country for such migrants in Latin America. The purpose of the research was to establish the relationship of adverse perinatal outcomes in Peruvian and migrant women (most of them Venezuelan). An observational, retrospective, analytical, correlational study was carried out; of the data of the national registry system of vital events of Peru – 2018.The results show statistically significant differences between migrants and Peruvians in relation to preterm deliveries and a greater number of cesarean sections, as well as in the averages of weight and height at birth, being unfavorable for migrants. It is concluded that the migrant condition places pregnant women in a disadvantageous situation, and midwives should consider this variable prenatally and postnatally.

15. Impacto del control prenatal en los resultados perinatales (Spanish) @ Room 2, BBB

Speaker: Leila Daniela Arguello

Facilitator: Julia Pecovich

OBJETIVO: Comparar los resultados perinatales adversos en mujeres que realizaron un control prenatal insuficiente o nulo vs. las que realizaron un control prenatal satisfactorio, que finalizaron su embarazo en el Hospital Municipal Ostaciana B. de Lavignolle durante el año 2019. MATERIALES Y METODOS: Estudio de tipo observacional, analítico de casos y controles. RESULTADOS: Apgar menor a 7 a los 5 minutos de vida (OR = 5.66; IC del 95%: 3.20- 10.01), mortalidad fetal (OR=11,82; IC del 95%: 4.77-29.29), bajo peso al nacer (OR=3,46; IC del 95%: 2.59-4.61), macrosomía fetal (OR= 0.62; IC del 95%: 0.46-0.85) y parto prematuro (OR = 3.73; IC del 95%: 2.84-4.90). CONCLUSIÓN: Observamos un aumento significativo en las probabilidades de que las mujeres que presentaron control prenatal insuficiente o nulo tengan resultados perinatales adversos. Generar estrategias para la captación y seguimiento de las embarazadas desde el equipo de salud, disminuiría la incidencia de resultados perinatales adversos.

English: OBJECTIVE: To compare adverse perinatal outcomes in women who underwent insufficient or no prenatal care vs. those who underwent a satisfactory prenatal check-up, who ended their pregnancy at the Ostaciana B. de Lavignolle Municipal Hospital during 2019.MATERIALS AND METHODS: An observational, analytical case-control study. RESULTS: Apgar score less than 7 at 5 minutes of life (OR = 5.66; 95% CI: 3.20-10.01), fetal mortality (OR = 11.82; 95% CI: 4.77-29.29), low birth weight (OR = 3.46; 95% CI: 2.59-4.61), fetal macrosomia (OR = 0.62; 95% CI: 0.46-0.85) and preterm delivery (OR = 3.73; 95% CI: 2.84-4.90) . CONCLUSION: We observed a significant increase in the chances that women who had insufficient or no prenatal care would have adverse perinatal outcomes. Generating strategies for the recruitment and monitoring of pregnant women from the health team would reduce the incidence of adverse perinatal outcomes.

Speakers: Evelyn Asencios Falcon and Patricia Juarez Coello

Facilitator: Raquel Kelly Justiniano

En el Perú, los servicios de atención diferenciada para adolescentes presentaban múltiples barreras, además la situación de la coyuntura actual ha provocado limitaciones en el acceso al servicio de salud. Como respuesta, los profesionales de Obstetricia desarrollaron la propuesta de Teleconsejería en Salud y Reproductiva, con participación de profesionales de Ingeniería de Sistema. El proyecto pone la inteligencia artificial al servicio de la salud, a través del desarrollo de un chatbot de Teleconsejería sobre salud sexual y reproductiva, para lo cual se requirió la creación de una página de Facebook, además, se eligieron temas prioritarios definidos por el Estado Peruano. Para el desarrollo de la Teleconsejería se adaptó los 5 pasos de la consejería en salud sexual y reproductiva al entorno virtual. Se necesitó también la implementación de una estrategia digital, que consistía en la construcción de la identidad del chatbot (TeleNanu) y la publicación periódica de información científica.

21. The attitudes of Ontario midwives towards sexual and gender minorities: Results from a cross-sectional survey study (English and Spanish) @ Room 4 - BBB

Speaker: Jennifer Goldberg

Facilitator: Niessa Meier

This study is a mixed mode (paper and internet) cross-sectional survey that explores midwives’ attitudes towards sexual and gender minority people (SGM). The need for this research is demonstrated by: (1) published literature showing midwives’ attitudes shape the care experiences of lesbian women; (2) a lack of literature on midwives’ attitudes towards all SGM. The response rate was 29.2% (n=270). Data analysis is in progress and includes measurement of Ontario midwives’ attitudes towards SGM and assessment of differences in attitudes toward SGM based on socio-demographic data. This study addresses a crucial gap at the intersection of SGM health equity and midwifery. Understanding how attitudes are shaped can help inform the process to build the capacity of midwives to provide quality, inclusive and safe care to all SGM, which could play an important role in reducing health disparities of SGM and improve their health outcomes.

NOTE: This presentation will be first in English, then in Spanish. Questions and answers will be in either language.

23. Midwives as change advocates in the public system (Spanish) @ Room 4 - BBB

Speaker(s): Ameyalli Aide Juarez Orea, Mariana Montaño Sosa, and Zeus Aranda

Facilitator: Marcela Mendoza Nunez

Since 2016, nurse-midwives have strengthened obstetric care at a birthing center and its adjacent basic community hospital in Chiapas, Mexico. In Mexico, delivery care continues to be monopolized by medical personnel who do not always provide respectful, evidence-based care. We want to share the challenges we have faced and the lessons learned during these 5 years. Since the birthing center project began, birth care practices in the facilities where we work have undergone noticeable changes: Comparing the first (August 2016-July 2017) and the last (August 2020-present) year of the project, the proportion of deliveries in which pregnant women are given the possibility to have a companion of their choice during labor has increased by 70%, while the proportion of deliveries in which pregnant women are given the possibility to choose the position of delivery has increased by 62%.
