this article talks about different birthing techniques. techniques to help pain and to help the labour move about quicker and easier. i found this article and i found another article talking about how most doctors in most hospitals keep you in one specific position for the whole birthing process. however if a woman is having a home birth she can use these techniques to help.

although this isnt a very positive entry what happened was this womans baby died in the womb. and it seems lie its saying that its because they were using a midwife and they cant see when crises such as this one would occur.

This article informs me that thier opinion is that natural birthing does have many benefits on the baby as well as the mother. after it talks about that it states reasearchers found, “elective caesareans or delivery without labour may result in impaired immunity in the newborn leading to increased risk of early viral lower respiratory infections.” and how after that the infection may continue throughout the next two years of the babies lifetime.

[Video] The Mountain Midwives of Vietnam

[Video] The Mountain Midwives of Vietnam | Midwifery or the Hospital | Scoop.it

The maternal mortality rate in rural regions of northern Vietnam is 10 times higher than the national average. In this observational film we follow a Hmong ethnic minority midwife who has been trained to provide maternal care to her community in the isolated Chi Ca commune. We observe her journeys into the harsh mountain terrain, her work tending to pregnant women and her efforts to change the Hmong's cultural attitudes towards maternal health against a backdrop of poverty and remoteness.

This is a beautiful and inspirational story. Please take 25 mins of your time to watch. (Comment by CSullivan)

This girl trained for years at a local hospital.they paid her seventeen dollars a month to be a midwife there. however she works in the field with her family because they need to eat. she only studied it for so long becayse she wanted to help the women in her small community. she also translates between the women and the vitanamese doctors so the can communicate for safe birthing.

These ten drugs describe side effects on the mother and the baby. Some of these drugs are takin as an antidepressant and some are takin to help with seizure problems. Either way all of them have major negative side effects such as a hole in the baby's heart and other heart defects. These types of medicines are prescribed by doctors rather than when a midwife is used there is no drugs involved, causing a much less chance of birth defects.

This article explains how mothers who have a cesarean ( C- section) have a much harder time forming a bond with their baby. This surgery takes a long time to heal which prevents the mother from moving around and picking the baby up which affects the relationship between the two. Having the support of a midwife helps the mother in the long run. When using a midwife the mother can have a better relationship with he newborn three days after birth than having a cesarean. At three to nine months mothers with midwives have more confidence with their babies.

I found it very interesting that during the 20th century 95% of babies were born in the home using a midwife. However, today in age it's less than 1%. They say that midwifery fell down so much is because its not classified as an actual profession. Approximately 85% of women start labour with no complications therefor, the need for all the medicines and equipment is unnecessary. Ad even though midwifery isn't a profession, they are classified as Certified Nurse Midwives or Certified professional midwives.
