Some of the objectives of the research are to train adequate numbers of midwives, obstetricians and or assistants with knowledge on PPIP such that accurate data collection can occur in the select institutions. This will ultimately reduce the hours staff spend conducting manual audits and significantly reduce or possibly eliminate the need for a statistician to provide analysis. Moreover, to improve collection of information on numbers of deliveries, stillbirths, early and late neonatal deaths, and maternal deaths allowing rates to be almost instantly calculated at any time and easily calculated at intervals to show trends. Data reflecting antenatal care, morbidity markers, delivery methods, age, parity, multiples, HIV and other infectious diseases will also be collected.

Tittle of proposal:
Obstetric Care and mother to infant bonding

Summary of research


The aim this project is to provide midwives use up-to-date, evidence based knowledge of mother-child bonding. With the research proposal, the researcher aims to investigate psychosocial aspects of maternal and newborn care to contribute to the prevention of impairments in mother-to-infant bonding and consequent problems in child development. For a midwife this is important to know, because on the basis of the risk for suboptimal bonding she can improve policy. She can encourage women who are at risk of suboptimal bonding to have themselves more intensely exposed to positive experiences (e.g. ultrasounds in pregnancy, skin to skin contact). And to observe if there are any negative factors which can be avoided.

Tittle of proposal:
What we do?, what women want? Perceptions and experiences' of Afghanistan health providers and women on birth positioning as a women's right; an exploratory study from Afghanistan.

Summary of research


It is the accepted practice at facility births in Afghanistan that women are not allowed to choose their position during labor/birth and they typically have to give birth in lithotomy position. Some women are not aware of their rights regarding choices for other positions. Traditional birth attendants “Daya” in Afghanistan perform delivery in various positions such as: upright, sitting, kneeling, lateral and squat but health provider in health facility don’t perform delivery in other positions, It is so important to find the barriers, knowledge of health providers, understand women’s perception and about their (needs) rights during childbirth in relation to birth positioning and to show the acceptancy and satisfaction of these positions by women and providers.

The aim of the project is to improve midwifery education by equipping midwives working in rural health facilities with knowledge, skills and appropriate attitudes in teaching and learning of level three student midwives in the clinical practice. This will improve midwifery care because students will be properly guided, and in return, women and their neonates will get good and quality midwifery care because of the effort students put in order to succeed in their learning. It will also ease the workload on the clinical midwives because level three students are finalists who work under minimal supervision.

Health professionals, in general, and nurses, in particular, need to receive women,trying to understand the multiplous means of gestation and child-birth; and, the nurses, because of their formation on caring, have the potencial to do this process. While facing this reality, the Nursing School of Federal University of Minas Gerais (EEUFMG) took the challange of giving the Nurses-Midwives Courses of Specialization (CEE0- Rede Cegonha), in partnership with Universities of all country and funded by the Health Ministry (MS).
