Herbs Pregnancy: Midwifery Consideration

Across the globe there is widespreaduse of herbs during pregnancy and birth though there is variability in both prevalence and the nature of the user.Research suggests that herbal medicines are most often used to complement all opathic pharmacotherapeutics rather than strictly as an alternative. While well over 100 herbs have been reportedly used by pregnant women, including Echinacea, raspberry, ginger, and cannabis, multinational research has demonstrated that women commonly use informal information sources and typically do not discuss with their primary obstetrical provider when deciding for or against use.This presentation describes evidence for use of select commonly ingested herbs,strategies for approaching pregnant women about herb use and documenting that use, perinatal considerations for safety and efficacy, and sources for up-to-date information. Particular emphasis will be on those herbs commonly used in late pregnancy to stimulate cervical remodeling and labor progress. At a time where medical labor induction rates are excessive and few women experience physiologic labor across all stages, the use of herbs may play an important role in the promotion of improved perinatal outcomes.

Marijuana in Pregnancy

Twenty U.S. states and the District of Columbia have laws that allow marijuana to be used for medicinal reasons; two of those states have also passed laws for recreational use. Pregnant women may resort to using marijuana to alleviate nausea and vomiting, for other medical conditions, or recreationally. It is important for providers to understand the characteristics of marijuana for a woman and her fetus, including therapeutic effects, potential side effects, drug interactions, various dosage forms, and patient safety issues. Providers need to know how to communicate with patients about the effects of using marijuana in pregnancy.

Diabetes and Pregnancy Translating Research into Practice: Care of the Women with Diabetes in the Childbearing Year, A Multidisciplinary Approach

Diabetes profoundly affects pregnancy.  Near normal glycemic control is key to optimizing outcomes.  Preconceptual care with emphasis on glycemic control and intensified perinatal care throughout the antepartum, intrapartum and postpartum period is key to optimizing maternal and newborn outcomes. Some women experience challenges in achieving glycemic control despite frequent and intensified care, and may perceive self-care as complex, and overwhelming. Midwifery care in an interdisciplinary team approach benefits the maternal newborn dyad, the health care system and the maternal experience.  This session with provide the learner with current evidence for practice.

This presentation will describe findings from a systematic review of the literature through April 2014.  The purpose of the review was to identify and analyze previous research that gave sufficient information to be compared to the current2009 IOM recommendations for obese women stratified by class of obesity by varying amounts of gestational weight gain or gestational weight loss.  The outcomes described are large for gestational age (LGA), small for gestational age (SGA) and cesarean birth. Findings suggest that the current IOM recommenations for gestational weight gain in pregnancy do not optimize outcomes for all obese women. This session with provide the learner with current evidence for practice.
