Էլ-փոստ Տպել PDF

We have initiated the establishment of Maternity school within the department of Antenatal consulting aimed at intensive preparation for the childbirth (5 lessons a week) enforcing the efforts of the department’s specialists and general staff who will be immediately involved in providing support while labor.

Prenatal preparation as a precondition for healthy childbirth:

Giving birth to her child is one of the most important, glorious and yet challenging missions in a woman’s life. The better a woman is prepared for a childbirth the brighter her emotions, the more controllable the newborn baby’s behavior    and the more delightful the reunion of the mother and child are.  Moreover, the absence of complications leads to normal physiological childbirth which has natural origins and is peculiar for any healthy woman.

Getting prepared to childbirth is as important as to pregnancy either in physical or psychological aspects. That way women may face so called “soft childbirth” when the memories about this event are not shaded with pain, sense of unsafety and humiliation. Thus, the time provided for prenatal preparation is never too much.

The prenatal preparatory classes are essential for all couples without exception. This regards not only the couples who are going to become parents for the first time. Before the birth of the second and following children future parents may also feel apprehension and concern. Some of the relatives may not understand that pregnancy is not an ordinary state and demands intensive attention and care, moreover in some cases the woman faces aggression particularly when it regards to the birth of the third or the forth baby. The elder children as a rule demand more attention and care from mother, in fact,  depriving her of  time to devote to herself and concentrate on her current state and care about the future baby.

Despite the abovementioned facts a woman should understand that it is crucial to prepare her body and soul for the most important event in her life. In order to achieve this, doctors recommend a complex of exercises to develop and improve flexibility of the muscles involved in labor process. Exercises implemented  in the swimming pool are essential for helping women to hold breathing,  stretch and relax muscles involved in labor process.

A pregnant woman should strictly control her eating and drinking regime, walk and have a lot of active pastime. Besides the physical training, a woman needs relevant psychological support to become a happy mammy. It is crucial for her to be treated carefully  at home by her family members, firstly her spouse and elder children. The more tenderly and caring are the relationships with people surrounding the future mother and her baby, the more comfortable she feels, the more relaxed is the uterus, the better it is fed by blood which is crucial for the development of the baby.

The experience has revealed that psycho-physical preparation of the couples should be strictly systemized. It provides for work with groups of pregnant women and their spouses, including the following three steps: awareness raising, educating and healthcare.

Educative program helps to develop sense of maternity through creating psychological nets between the parents and the future baby.  In the framework of this program the classes involve not only pregnant women but future fathers as well.  As a result, the awaiting period and birth of a child is viewed as a common interest and joint effort for both parents equally, which positively affects their relationship and the pregnant woman doesn’t feel lonely and confused.

The healthcare program provides for a complex of measures: assessment of the health state, prognosis of obstetric complications and the mere healthcare activities. The health state assessment is based on the clinical check-up results which allows to individualize the clinical diagnose and select the best complex of exercises for each woman. The classes are delivered according to well-developed system of gymnastic exercises including elements of massage and self-massaging. Meanwhile, the pregnant women and their partners are provided opportunity to implement special breathing and relaxing exercises. To achieve optimal efficiency these exercises are implemented in the swimming pool where they practice breath holding techniques, imitating various phases of labor, as well as muscle stretching exercises. Completing the main healthcare program the pregnant women may attend the classes up to the day of childbirth.

The awareness raising program is aimed at providing information to the future parents about the physiological peculiarities of childbirth, specific regimes, diets, hygiene rules while pregnancy, labor and postnatal period as well as essential information on childcare and breastfeeding.

Frequently, the psychological pain factor prevails over the physical one. Thus, in a result of well organized psycho-physical preparation the pain may be transformed into feeling of excitement without medicinal pain relief.

As a rule,  after  physiological labor newborns breath without screaming and even smile 5-10 minutes after birth. It certifies the successful pass of the “critical period of life” and creates preconditions for future childbirths highlighting the social significance of the preparatory program.
