According to the WHO, the continuity of care during pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding is one of the most important factors when reducing maternal, fetal and newborn mortality and morbidity, as it increases the chances for a low-risk pregnancy, a healthy childbirth and higher success in breastfeeding.
We intend to create 3 groups of midwivesm abd each group will be responsible for a number of clients, ensuring the continuity of care in pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. Each pregnant woman (or couple) will have a designated midwife who will be close to the other two who integrate her group, so as to ensure the continuity of care should any impediment arise for the first midwife.
Assistance will be available 24h/day, 7 days/week, during pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding.
Among the functions of the responsible midwife/group are the vigilance og the pregnancy (in cases of low-risk pregnancies – high-risk pregnancies are taken to the adequate health services), prenatal education, supervision of birth labor, attention to the parturient and newborn, counseling and supervision during breastfeeding. It includes homecare services whenever necessary.
