  • MCC::Events::Conferences::Session 1::Session 1 Summary
    Midwifery Graduate Program at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing discussed 21st Century American Birth and posed the question Are We in the Midst of a Cultural Change In the United States today some childbearing families have less access to services and poorer quality care Others however have embraced the changes in OB care and are happy with their experiences Why do we face this discrepancy Bill McCool In the United States there is a new birth culture Women are relinquishing their power in exchange for pain free births and the avoidance of perceived health care risks down the road In the US today practitioners focus on biomedical statistics and the physical health of the mother and baby They see themselves as the protector of the mother and baby from a number of healthcare and financial dangers There are two pervasive topics in US childbirth culture that Bill addressed The first was epidurals The use of epidurals has risen dramatically over the past 15 years yet many concerns remain over adverse effects of epidurals and it is not clear that women are informed about these effects There are also socio cultural concerns why do women in the United States believe that childbirth has to be a completely pain free experience Bill believes that feminism has led to this belief Women now demand to have multiple choices in their childbirth experiences and have the right to choose a pain free birth Also in this society people now clamor for a pain free existence and are seduced by the wonders of technology The second topic that Bill addressed was the prevalence of elective c sections From 1991 to 2001 there has been a 67 increase in the primary C section rate Bill discussed that women now believe that C sections are better for their pelvic floor and that women want to have control over the time of birth The scheduling of births also eases the schedules of obstetricians and enables them to work on a 9 5 schedule There are concerns with the alarming rate of C sections there are always risk when having major surgery C sections can lead to newborn respiratory problems and Bill is doubtful that there is true informed consent around C sections Childbirth must be viewed in its cultural context Bill argues In the US childbirth has emerged as a medical surgical event But where are we headed We need to be aware of all the cultural forces that affect the childbirth experience and women need to examine where they want birth in the 21st century to be Paula Bussard Senior Vice President of Policy and Regulatory Services at The Hospital Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania presented next on the perspective of hospitals Hospitals in Pennsylvania deliver 140 000 births annually In Pennsylvania there has been a decline in the number of licensed hospitals and licensed beds From 1997 2005 there has been a decline in the number of OB units from 148 to 129 with the

    only 9 of births Typically obstetricians standardize pathology and midwives normalize uniqueness Robbie supports a holistic model of medicine which views science and technology at the service of the individual and places authority and responsibility with the person In this model there is not a standardization of care care is based on the individual and there is a normalization of the uniqueness of individuals Today we are fortunate to be able to combine the best of technocratic medicine a humanistic philosophy holistic modalities and the knowledge systems of ancient and indigenous cultures With this we can transcend the limitations of paradigms creating new rituals that enact the most comprehensive and effective knowledge system about birth to keep open the full spectrum of choices in childbirth for women Our Bodies Ourselves in a New Era Judy Norsigian Executive Director Our Bodies Ourselves Judy Norsigian began by congratulating Maternity Care Coalition as one of the country s great resources for talking and thinking about positive birth experiences One of the new things in this 8 th edition of Our Bodies Ourselves is the inclusion of younger women in the Judy Norsigian leadership of the project There is also a new companion website at www ourbodiesourselves org The first edition of Our Bodies Ourselves was written in angry response to the lack of education being provided to women about their bodies Today the Our Bodies Ourselves message is reaching around the world There have been more than a dozen translations or cultural adaptations of the book and in each instance the book is an outgrowth of the women s community in that country Judy hopes that with the cultural and linguistic adaptations of Our Bodies Ourselves a transnational dialogue will begin Our Bodies Ourselves has been a springboard for activism and Judy urged that we should all be more active in the communities in which we live We must help facilitate a collaboration of various disciplines so that we can learn what evidence needs to be collected and what options women want Daughters Becoming Mothers Feminism History Childbearing Options in Our Bodies Ourselves Elizabeth Sarah Lindsey Maternity Care Coalition Elizabeth Lindsey is 25 years old and identifies as a queer black woman of mixed race heritage queer She is of childbearing age and is author of the on gender identity in the new edition of Our Bodies Ourselves Elizabeth s goal in her presentation was to examine previous editions of the book to better understand were we are now and how we got here Our Bodies Ourselves has provided women an environment to learn more about themselves and their bodies for decades It is important to recognize women s experiences in childbearing in the past and how feminist struggles in our communities have impacted the choices that we have today In the 1971 edition of Our Bodies Ourselves the chapter Pregnancy raised consciousness about the intense societal pressures women were experiencing to become pregnant The same chapter also detailed the demands that women
