Marion’s Message: Shoulder Dystocia: Midwifery Care

Shoulder dystocia (SD) is a complication that is rare, hard to predict, and potentially fatal to the birthing baby. Baby and mother can sustain lasting damage. No wonder it is commonly feared by birth practitioners.

From the Editor: Complications and Fear

A midwife is responsible for knowing and recalling all she is able about any complication that may arise. We have lives in our hands, so we want to know as many techniques for any given situation as we can. Most do not happen very frequently. Shoulder dystocia is one of our big ones; learning all we can and reviewing our knowledge base often is very important. Read more…. From the Editor: Complications and Fear

Resolving Shoulder Dystocia with the Gaskin Maneuver or McRoberts Maneuver

Looking out of the door of my hut in Acholiland, northern Uganda, I could see a tree spreading its branches out underneath a cloudy sky. The red earth was wet, everything was green and growing, and cheeping chicks were trailing around after mother hens as roosters crowed. It was the rainy season.

PostPartum Care in the Context of a Developing Country

In past articles I wrote in this series, I mentioned that while visiting Thailand years ago, I found that they have a charming expression that translates in English to “same same but different” (vendors in the market will say this to you repeatedly as they show you different products in the same basic grouping).

Using Quinton Hypertonic for Postpartum Issues

First, I believe that a midwife who serves a pregnant woman needs to educate herself, to prevent any excessive bleeding. However, in my experience, many women called late in pregnancy and communication was not always good. Fortunately, I discovered Quinton Hypertonic through an amateur midwife from the UK, who had just settled in southern France to set up a clinic and asked me to be her elder midwife.

A Unique Midwifery Pathway

When I was 12 years old, I lived in Naples, Italy. My dad was in the Navy, and we were stationed there for a few years. I grew up with my mother telling stories about birth as a terrible thing to go through. One day the oldest kid of a family living down the hall knocked at our apartment door. I followed him down the hall, at his request.
