  • General anaesthesia during caesarean sections: implications for the mother, foetus, anaesthetist and obstetrician. [Journal Article]
    Curr Opin Obstet Gynecol 2019Ratnayake G, Patil V
  • CONCLUSIONS: This review will outline the different stages of a general anaesthetic and highlight the risks. This summary will allow a better understanding of anaesthetic risks. This will allow obstetricians to have a more informed conversation with an anaesthetist as to form of anaesthetic required (general anaesthetic versus spinal or epidural top-up). The review will also allow obstetricians to give more informed consent to mothers and be aware of the postoperative risks.
  • Comparison of Midwifery and Obstetric Care in Low-Risk Hospital Births. [Journal Article]
    Obstet Gynecol 2019Souter V, Nethery E, … Caughey AB
  • CONCLUSIONS: In low-risk pregnancies, midwifery care in labor was associated with decreased intervention, decreased cesarean and operative vaginal births, and, in multiparous women, an increased risk for shoulder dystocia. Greater integration of midwifery care into maternity services in the United States may reduce intervention in labor and potentially even cesarean delivery, in low-risk pregnancies. Larger research studies are needed to evaluate uncommon but important maternal and newborn outcomes.
  • An Analytical Mobile App for Shared Decision Making About Prenatal Screening: Protocol for a Mixed Methods Study. [Journal Article]
    JMIR Res Protoc 2019; 8(10):e13321Abbasgholizadeh Rahimi S, Archambault PM, … Légaré F
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study will result in a validated analytical app that will provide pregnant women and their partners with up-to-date information about prenatal screening options and their risks and benefits. It will help them clarify their values and enable them to weigh the options to make informed choices consistent with their preferences and values before meeting face-to-face with their health care professional. The app will be easy to update with the latest information and will provide women with a user-friendly experience using their smartphones or tablets. This study and the resulting app will contribute to high-quality SDM between pregnant women and their health care team.

  • Healthcare professionals' perspectives on identifying and managing perinatal anxiety: a qualitative study. [Journal Article]
    Br J Gen Pract 2019Silverwood V, Nash A, … Kingstone T
  • CONCLUSIONS: Awareness and understanding of PNA among HCPs is variable, with debate over what is 'normal' anxiety in pregnancy. HCPs suggested that PNA can be challenging to identify, with mixed views on the use and value of case-finding tools. Opportunistic identification was noted to be significant to aid diagnosis. Care for women diagnosed with PNA was reported to be fragmented and interprofessional communication poor. Potential solutions to improve care were identified.
  • Universal access to contraception: women, families, and communities benefit. [Journal Article]
    Am J Obstet Gynecol 2019Rice LW, Espey E, … Lockwood CJ
  • Universal access to contraception benefits society: unintended pregnancies, maternal mortality, preterm birth, abortions, and obesity would be reduced by increasing access to affordable contraception. Women should be able to choose when and whether to use contraception, choose which method to use, and have ready access to their chosen method. State and national government should support unrestric…
