Childbirth is a natural process of human reproduction, but according to relevant data, 95% of women will have a strong sense of fear and loneliness during childbirth, and almost 100% of pregnant women want to be accompanied during childbirth. So in 1996, a new mode of delivery appeared in the United States – doula paternity. The so-called “Doula accompanying labor” is to hire a professional with production experience and rich obstetric knowledge to accompany the whole process of labor, and provide psychological and physiological professional knowledge in time. These professionals are called “Doula”.
Delivery can generally be divided into three stages: waiting period, delivery period and postpartum observation period. Since the parturient was admitted to the hospital for childbirth, “Doula” will accompany the parturient, introduce the physiological characteristics of childbirth to the parturient, eliminate the fear of the parturient, and carefully observe the various situations of the parturient, so as to inform the doctor for treatment in time. At the same time, encourage pregnant women to eat and explain the problems raised by pregnant women and their families.
In the delivery period, “Doula” first introduces the basic situation of pregnant women to the chief obstetrician and assists the doctor in various preparations. Guide and encourage women to work hard correctly, wipe sweat for women, and constantly give them psychological support. During the interval of uterine contraction, the pregnant women should be fed with water and food to help them maintain their physical strength. During the postpartum observation period, doula will accompany the pregnant women back to the ward for two hours of maternal and infant health observation to guide the pregnant women and infants to make skin contact in time.
Advantages of Doula paternity: because doula is served by obstetric doctors, with many years of delivery experience and professional medical knowledge, the most important thing in the whole process of paternity is to find and deal with all kinds of maternal situations in time. Therefore, when accompanied by family, doula’s company is more professional, which can ensure the safety of mother and baby to a greater extent. Doula can well establish maternal self-confidence. More importantly, the professional guidance of Doula can shorten the whole labor process and make the mother and baby healthier.
At present, the hospitals that can provide doula paternity include Nanjing Maternal and child health hospital, Beijing Maternal and child hospital, Beijing Haidian maternal and child health hospital, Shanghai International Peace Maternal and child health hospital, Shanghai Changning maternal and child health hospital, Dalian maternal and child hospital, Dalian Shahekou maternal and child health hospital and Guangdong maternal and child health hospital.
For many pregnant women, water delivery is the simplest way to make you feel very relaxed. In water, due to the effect of buoyancy, it can effectively help muscles relax, support your muscles and bones and relieve pain.
When giving birth in water, the pregnant woman lies in a special bathtub, which has high requirements for disinfection and constant temperature facilities. During delivery, the water temperature should be kept at 36 ℃ ~ 37 ℃, while the ambient temperature is 26 ℃. Water must be disinfected. During the whole delivery process, you need to change the water several times.
Advantages of water delivery: first, water delivery is faster, which can reduce the harm to the mother and the risk of infant hypoxia; 2、 The mother is easy to rest and turn over, and warm water at 36 ℃ ~ 37 ℃ can reduce the pain during childbirth.
Limitations of water delivery: it is very beneficial for pregnant women with heart disease, premature rupture of membranes and dystocia tendency,
At present, the hospitals that can provide water delivery are: Shanghai Changning maternal and child health hospital.
Sitting delivery is actually a very ancient and natural method of production. Women used sitting delivery as early as the 18th century. For a long time, supine delivery has been regarded as natural, but it is not. Experts believe that the traditional supine has obvious disadvantages, which often makes it difficult for the maternal sacrococcygeal joint to expand, resulting in the narrowing of the pelvic outlet, the uterus compresses the pelvic artery and vein, resulting in the reduction of placental blood flow and affecting the fetus. This delivery posture is an adverse posture contrary to physiology. Sitting delivery has six advantages: first, it can shorten the labor process; Second, it can increase the fetal pressure on uterine contraction; Third, it can increase the outlet diameter of pelvis; Fourth, it can reduce the inclination of pelvis, which is conducive to smooth delivery; Fifth, improve the blood supply of placenta and reduce the rate of fetal distress and neonatal asphyxia; Sixth, pregnant women feel comfortable during delivery, can look around everything, and reduce tension, fear and anxiety. Changing the production posture can also relieve the tension of pregnant women, so as to reduce the labor pain.
At present, there are hospitals in China that allow parturients to use various vertical postures, including sitting delivery postures. The automatically adjustable delivery bed provides great help to delivery, and delivery is becoming more and more humanized.
At present, the hospitals that can provide sitting delivery are: Nanjing Maternal and Child Health Hospital; Beijing Haidian District Maternal and child health hospital.
The introduction of this delivery mode is to learn from foreign family delivery rooms and work hard from the environment to make pregnant women psychologically eliminate their fear of the hospital, so that they can deliver easily. The layout of the delivery room is very warm, with sofa, bed and TV, which is very family. Not only can the pregnant woman be as comfortable as at home, but also provides good conditions for the accompanying family. All necessary medical equipment is cleverly covered up, and the color is no longer monotonous white. The combination of the waiting room and the delivery room eliminates the bad mood of pregnant women because they are unfamiliar with the environment.
This kind of delivery is generally expensive. The cost of producing area in 3 days is generally more than 20000 yuan. At present, the hospitals that can provide VIP delivery include Beijing United Family Hospital and Shanghai International Peace Maternal and child health hospital.
“Laughing gas” delivery
The chemical name of a gas used for painless childbirth more than 160 years ago is “nitrous oxide”. As early as 1847, a German chemist synthesized this gas and found that once a person inhaled this gas, he could not help laughing. Once, when performing in the street, a person inhaled nitrous oxide and was so happy that he ran and jumped until he fell, but he still laughed and broke his leg, An American doctor at the scene realized that “laughing gas” may have anesthetic effect. Try it, and it’s true. So this gas has the reputation of “laughing gas”. In 1853, British doctors used “laughing gas” for painless childbirth for the first time. This woman was the queen of England at that time. In recent decades, the mixture of “laughing gas” and oxygen has become a popular method of painless delivery in some European and American countries.
