midwife muse -- a community midwifery bulletin board
Saturday, 3 January 2004
Want the latest link for Neonatal Resucitation ?

Parenting Magazine . They have a nice page with images of the baby in the womb.

Here are wonderful pictures of a lovely

breech birth!

Worried about a big baby? Thinking you might need to induce? WOnder what ACOG thinks about inducing to prevent macrosmia? Here's the dope on that sticky subject.

It almost seems to be some sort of secret that ACOG does NOT advise elective induction or ceserean for big babies. In thier "practice guidline" they reason that diagnosis of fetal macrosomia is imprecise, and that ultrasound is no more accurate than palpation or external estimates, and that induction isn't warranted since it doesn't improve fetal or maternal outcome.
As long as mom doesn't have diabetes -- and baby is expected under 5 kg (11 pounds)-- then a spontaneous vaginal delivery "is not contra-indicated". But read it yourself.

Here's an intersting site. Ever hear of Mayan Massage? It's one of those old folk wisdoms, and seems pretty neat!

Well,ok, this one is a political link and not related to midwifery link. But it's still pretty cool!

Post your "cool links" here!Add a "comment"!
