22. Changing maternity healthcare in Israel - Women experiences and needs in view of current policy @ Room 1 - BBB

Speakers: Keshet Korem and Sivan Lienhart

Facilitator: Kimberley Couch

Our presentation will focus on the need for maternity healthcare improvement in Israel. Based on the results of the first survey conducted on the subject in Israel, we mapped the desires, expectations and experiences of 3500 women in relation to the period of pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum. Our results showed that women are interested in midwifery-led care, continuity of care and out-of-hospitals midwife-led birth centers. Those results are showing an urgent need for change in childbirth related policy in Israel, within which hospitals suffer from shortage of midwives and limits midwives to attend out-of-hospital births. From the obtained data and existing figures related to maternity care provided to minorities, we formulated recommendations for enhancing healthcare services, adapting them to Israeli birthing women desires. Allowing all birthing women and people to access quality public and equal maternal healthcare with no relation to their ethnicity or geographical location are aimed.
