Abstract:

Research shows that Hypnobirthing (HB) techniques allow the birthing process to progress naturally. HB mothers require less drugs during birth, are calmer and can therefore process information and make decisions more efficiently in cases intervention is required. HB mothers also show lower rates of premature births and low birth infants. However, despite the increasing awareness in the world (and in the Netherlands where I live and work) to the existence of Hypnobirthing, I feel there is room for improvement in the inclusion of this method as a mainstream practice in the delivery room. Teaching Hypnobirthing techniques as part of the mainstream childbirth preparation courses and especially when combined with other relaxation techniques and prenatal yoga, can dramatically improve and facilitate the work of the midwives and the doctors, resulting in calmer mothers whose bodies work with the birthing process in harmony rather than against it (due to stress and pain).

Australia Nigel Lee, BHlthSci, MMId, PhD

Nigel is a Midwife with clinical, education, research and policy experience. The main focus of his research has been on optimising care during childbirth. His PhD research explored the use of sterile water injections for the relief of back pain in labour. His work in this area is ongoing and has contributed to the increased use of this novel, simple and effective analgesic technique in Australia and the United Kingdom. Nigel has also published in the area of normal labour progress, including a randomised trial of labour documentation and management incorporating practice recommendations from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, and retrospective studies into strategies for preventing severe perineal injury. Nigel is currently a Midwifery researcher and lecturer for the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work at the University of Queensland and an Honorary Research Fellow with the Mater Research Institute.

Abstract:

Up to 30% of women experience severe back pain in labour. In qualitative studies women have described how labour back pain limited their mobility and altered their plans for analgesia use. Injections of small amounts of sterile water into the skin of the lower back are used to alleviate back pain for up to two hours. Whilst much research supports the effectiveness of the technique critics suggest a placebo effect or dismiss the procedure as ‘midwifery voodoo’. This presentation will examine the causes and physiology of back pain in labour, examine and critique the research into sterile water injections and describe the techniques, benefits and limitations for use in clinical practice.

Abstract:

This offering will introduce learners to the use of sterile water injections as an alternative pain relief method for lower back pain during labor. A review of lower back anatomy and causes of lower back pain during labor will provide a solid knowledge base before learning the principles of intradermal analgesia, including how to place intradermal sterile water injections for lower back pain management in labor. Participants must be willing to actively participate in hands-on practice on one another of intradermal injections in both the arm and lower back.
