Northern Samar midwives hold scientific session

By Teresita B. Cardenas

Catarman, Northern Samar (12 October) -- To enhance their knowledge and skills, the Northern Samar Midwives held recently a scientific session at the Farmers' Training Center, University of Eastern Philippines here in Catarman.

With its theme "Empowered Midwives - Strong Partners in Delivering Health Services in the Community", the session also sought to develop positive attitudes among the health workers particularly the midwives.

According to Anunciacion L. Garabel, the president of the Philippine League of Government and Private Midwives, Inc., Northern Samar Chapter, among the topics discussed during the session were pre-natal care and nutrition.

Garabel said that pre-natal care is a comprehensive care program that involves a coordinated approach to medical care and psychosocial support that optimally begins before conception and extends throughout the antepartum period (before delivery).

She further added that pre natal care is very important to ensure an uncomplicated pregnancy and the delivery of a live and healthy infant.

They were also trained on: (1) how to identify complications developed during pregnancy, (2) promote good practices, (3) educate women on the danger signals of pregnancy and (4) help the pregnant women and the family prepare for childbirth.

According to Mead Johnson - Family Beginnings, prenatal care is needed to: define the health status of the mother and fetus; determine the gestational age of the fetus (age of the baby in the womb); initiate plan for continuing obstetrical care - the doctor will be able to help the mother and guide the same through all the stages of pregnancy, and finally, to prepare the mother for a safe and successful delivery.
