Wazazi Mother Care 2018

Still, Health care providers, and Wazazi Mother Care are well poised to help women evaluate pregnancy apps, which can empower patients and facilitate patient/provider communication.

When patients educate themselves, they provide themselves with the best healthcare, because they can identify specifically where they need help.

What we do as Wazazi Mother Care is helping consumers pick useful apps for their specific needs. For example, fertility apps that allow women to enter the length of their menstrual cycles or that calculate menstrual cycle length will be more accurate than apps that use a generic 28-day cycle.

Choosing apps can be collaborative. Physicians can encourage patients to download an app during an antenatal visit. This informal data collection by the apps helps health care providers advise other patients about the apps that are most popular among their clients and also store patient timely information vital in providing the right health care. It allows physicians to connect with the patients in a way that had not been able to in the past.

A typical physician-attended hospital birth today looks very little like a home birth of a century ago. The past century has brought numerous changes in childbirth technology, including tests and procedures during pregnancy, how the baby’s well being is monitored during labor, and birth practices. There are pros and cons to many of these changes.

i. Tests and procedures
Providers offer women an array of screening and diagnostic tests during their pregnancy.
ii. Monitoring the baby’s well being
Intermittent monitoring during labor is the recommended practice, but many hospitals monitor continuously.
iii. Birth practices
Cesarean sections and inductions of labor have become much more common.
iv. The use of apps in planning and monitoring pregnancy

Uploading prenatal sonogram photographs, tweeting pregnancy experiences, making online photo albums of children from birth, and even creating email addresses for babies – today’s parents are increasingly building digital footprints for their children prior to and from the moment they are born. Almost a quarter (23%) of children begin their digital lives when parents upload their prenatal sonogram scans to the Internet.

The good news about having a baby today is that a wealth of information is readily available: from your provider, on the web, in bookstores, and at the comfort of your phone.
Medical ethics have also changed. The paternalistic and well-meaning “doctor knows best” attitude of a century ago has been replaced with a respect for the autonomy of the birthing woman and an understanding that all women must be provided with information and give consent before medical treatment.

Most midwives and physicians have a strong desire to do just that. However, a few providers, although well-meaning, might provide fear-based, limited information, particularly if a woman is identified as being high-risk. Imagine being told, “unless you have this procedure, your baby might die” without additional information about the actual likelihood of death or disability, or alternatives to the procedure. How would you respond in such a situation? Fortunately, these practices are rare, and, even for women who have identified risk factors, many options and alternatives remain available to her during pregnancy and childbirth.

At first glance, the natural childbirth movement may have seemed a step backward in terms of comfort in labor and birth, but several advances had been made in non-medicinal methods of pain relief. Early proponents of natural childbirth (Dick-Read, 1943; Karmal, 1959; Lamaze, 1970; Leboyer, 1975; and Bradley, 1978) developed programs to prepare women for childbirth that included relaxation, patterned breathing, hypnosis, and water immersion. Encouraged by the work of these early experts, women began to reclaim their autonomy in the birth process.

Note that advances in medical treatment of pain have also resulted in pain management techniques that are safer and less disruptive to the process of labor than earlier methods had been, although these are still not risk free.

 

Changes in childbirth

• Pain management
Pain management techniques have evolved over the last century.

• Economics of childbirth
During the 20th century, childbirth shifted to the hospital for reasons that are in part economic in Uganda.

• System of healthcare
The system of healthcare in Uganda has changed a lot over the past century.

During the 1950s and 60s, women became more aware of the problems associated with heavy anesthesia during labor. Dense anesthesia:
• Had negative physical effects on women and their babies
• Left women unable to play a role in their own care and that of their babies.
In addition, the use of heavy anesthesia shifted control of childbirth from women (the birthing mother and her midwife), to the physician, (generally male at that time). The growing women’s movement drew attention to this power change and set the stage for the natural childbirth movement. There was a strong sentiment that women, not their healthcare provider, should be in charge of the labor experience.

Today my friend, a woman having a baby in an industrialized nation can reasonably expect that both she and her baby will have a healthy journey through pregnancy and birth. Childbearing is generally safe and does not represent illness or disability. A hundred years ago, many women faced childbirth with some fear because they knew of a mother or baby who had died. Today, however, there is some expectation that changes in childbirth technology not only minimize risks that might have led to death or disability a century ago, but promise a perfect outcome.

Additionally, in many parts of the world today, women can plan their pregnancies and tend to have fewer children than a century ago. This has created a culture where each pregnancy and baby generates intense attention.
Expectations of pain management have also changed. One hundred years ago, most children throughout the world were born at home. Although many factors contributed to the movement of childbirth from the home to the hospital, one important reason for this change was the development of pain-reducing childbirth anesthesia, which was only available at the hospital.

In the recent times companies Like Wazazi Mother care are predominantly determined to guide the era of innovative technologies that help to improve the outcomes of pregnancy in low resource settings. We care for your unborn child and you that’s why you have always kept it Wazazi Mother Care.

Childbirth itself as most of us know has not changed at all. Babies are born today in the same way that that they have been born for generations and even those to come. But many things associated with childbirth have changed, including:
• Women’s expectations of childbirth
• Pain management options
• The economics of childbirth and the system of healthcare
• The technology and Apps used during before and after pregnancy.

These factors have greatly changed women’s childbirth experiences and life of the baby in the long run. Here at Wazazi we improve the outcomes of pregnancy through the various services we provide as I shall take you each of them in the later days. Our major role as WMCL is to stay continuously committed to improve your pregnancy experience through working with you.
