A group of surveyors from the Royal Women's Hospital and La Trobe University has concluded after a recent study that women who prefer assistance and care by a midwife during the pregnancy period are at a lesser risk of giving birth by caesarean section.
A trial named the Comparing Standard Maternity care with One-to-One Midwifery Support was carried out by the team, which has shown extreme benefits of taking a one-on-one midwife care. It has disclosed that standard care preferred by low-risk women makes them to lose the chance of being profited by almost 22%.
Since the rate of caesarean births has risen in past years and the same increases one's risk of infection or asthma. The team is thus largely emphasizing on the need for midwifery care. It has told that there is evidence that not only the baby is born healthy, but the possibility of occurrence of episiotomies and epidurals also turns minuscule.
Alongside it, women are less likely to stay in hospital for long, with those without the midwife model spending some 60.5. hours and midwife assisted women staying for 55.4 hours only.
"The relationship established between midwives and women appears to build a woman's trust and confidence before, during and after the birth, helping women have a more positive birth experience", said Professor Helen McLachlan.
