1 UNDERSTANDING THE CONCEPT OF PREVENTIVE AND COMMUNITY MEDICINE IN OBSTETRICS AND IMPLEMENTING IT IN ANC OPD DR. ASHA JAIN MBBS, MS Gynecology and Obstetrics SENIOIR GYNECOLOGIST NEHRU HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICAL COLLEGE AND HOSPITAL

2 Obstetrics is largely a preventive medicine
Obstetrics is largely a preventive medicine. the aim of both is the same which is to ensure the good health of mother through out pregnancy and puerperium so that every pregnancy may culminate in a healthy mother with a healthy baby.

3 SOCIAL OBSTETRICS This concept has recently gained popularity which is defined as the study of interplay of social and environmental factors and human reproduction going back to preconceptional and even pre marital period.

4 SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS
1. AGE OF MARRIAGE 2. AGE OF CHILD BEARING 3. CHILD SPACING 4. FAMILY SIZE 5. LEVEL OF EDUCATION 6. ECONOMIC STATUS 7. CUSTOMS AND BELIEFS 8. ROLE OF WOMEN IN SOCIETY

5 contd. All socia and environmental factors are interrelated like early marriage is a social custom in third world countries especially in Indian BIMARU states. Mean age of marriages Is 17.4 years, it is even lower in above states. 20% of all pregnancies are teenage pregnancy forced by families and society. Pregnancy below 16 years leads to high precentage of risks like PIH, anaemia, small pelvis, immature perineum with injuries, preterm births and high perinantal and maternal morbidity. MONSTERS OF OUR SOCIETY ARE IGNORANCE, POVERTY, ILLITERACY AND GENDER DISCRIMINATION.

6 CONTD… Gender discrimination is quite prevalent in Indian families. Best and good food goes to the father and the sons. Very few realize that nutrition and health of adolescent girl forms most important step for the health of future pregnant woman. It is not wrong to say that nutrition and health care of the pregnant woman starts at the age of 10 and not when she becomes pregnant.

7 Contd… Ignorance, poverty and illiteracy results into unplanned sexual activity and pregnancies. Though society is divided on the issue of sex education, it must be started at the school level which should consist of: Physiology and anatomy of reproductive sysem Genital hygiene and care during menstrual cycle Harmful effects of premarital and unsafe sex Should be taught about STD, HIV and contraception

8 Contd… Best way to educate and influence people in villages and town is to involve religious leaders who can during their discourse point out the importance of sex education, family planning and care of girl child. School teachers can also be educated. Posters and mass media like radio and TV can also propagate the idea and importance of above factors. Various NGO’s and medical societies can also help in changing the attitude of people towards size of family, care of adolescent girl and pregnant mother and use of family planning devises.

9 MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTH
Mother and child must be considered a single unit because: 1. During antenatal period fetus is a part of mother and obtains all the building material and oxygen from mother’s blood. 2. Child’s health is closely related to maternal health, a healthy mother brings forth a healthy baby. 3. Certain conditions and diseases are likely to have their effect on fetus e.g.. DM, infections etc. 4. After birth child is dependent on mother. 5. In the care cycle of women there are few occasions where service to the child is simultaneously called for eg. Post partum period care which is inseparable from neonatal care. 6. Mother is first teacher of child.

10 Contd… MCH care refers to promotive, preventive and rehabilitative health care for mother and child. It includes: Maternal health Child health Family planning School health Health care of special cases like adolescent girls, handicapped children and care of children in special settings like daycare centers

11 Antenatal care Care of woman during pregnancy is called antennal care. The aim is to achieve healthy mother and a healthy baby at the end of pregnancy. In recent years there has been a mass reduction in maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. Apart from other factors proper antenatal care has bought about remarkable results.

12 Objectives of antenatal care
Promote, protect and maintain helath of mother during pregnancy Detect high risk cases Foresee complications and prevent them To remove anxiety and dread related to pregnancy and delivery To reduce MMR and IMR related to delivery Teach mother the elements of childcare, nutrition, hygiene, environmental sanitation etc. Sensitize mother about family planning To attend under five children accompanying the mother

13 MCH PROBLEMS Main health problems affecting the health of mother and child revolves around: 1. Malnutrition 2. Infections 3. Consequences of unregulated fertility 4. Scarcity of health and other services with poor socioeconomic conditions.

14 ANTENATAL CARE General history
Family history regarding history of TB, HT, DM, congenital anomalies, hereditary diseases. Personal history: H/O medical and surgical problems and H/O deficiency Mestrual history: LMP, EDD Obstetric history: Previous pregnancies- abortions induced or spontaneous Normal deliveries Operative deliveries- instrumental or CS Any complication during pregnancy Complications of labor Third stage complications Puerperium Condition of child

15 General and medical examination
Height and weight Stature and nutritional status Gait Medical examination: Respiratory, cardiac, endocrinal and abdominal examination Examination of oral cavity Examination of breast BP, edema feet, cyanosis, clubbing etc.

16 Obstetric examination
Height of uterus Presentation, lie and position Fetal heart rate

17 Vaginal examination EARLY PREGNANCY To confirm diagnosis of pregnancy
To rule out extra uterine pregnancy Any adenexal pathology LATE PREGNANCY To rule out CPD At the time of labor and Any other obstetric indication

18 Laboratory examination
Hb, ABO Rh, blood sugar, urine analysis, HIV, VDRL, HbsAg ICT in Rh –ve if husband is positive

19 Advice Impress upon her need for regular attendance at the clinic and assure her that pregnancy and labor would be smooth and safe. Ideal number of visits: First visit in 1st 3 months Once a month till 28 weeks Twice a month till 36 weeks Weekly till delivery As it is difficult for the mother coming from low socio economic group minimum 3 visits during entire pregnancy is a must. 1st visit earliest < 20 weeks 2nd visit at 32 weeks 3rd visit at 36 weeks Further visits justified by the condition of the mother. Home visits are also paid by the health worker. All records are propely maintained in the ANC card.

20 Advice At this time the mother is more receptive to the advice concerning herself and the baby. She must be advised for: Diet Personal hygiene Drugs Warning signs Radiation Childcare

21 Dietary advice A daily intake of about calories meet the total energy needs of the average pregnant woman. Wt gain is directly related to healthy and adequate diet Balanced and nutritious diet required is as follows: high protein, high roughage and rich in iron content. She is instructed to take such diet home resources available in the budget. She may be provided a diet chart keeping in mind 3G formula. 1G for grains e.g. chapati 2G for gram e.g. dal 3G for green leafy vegetables and fruits.

Childcare classes should be held Education on labor and child birth

24 Contd… Lack of proper communication during ANC and non compliance on the part of female and her relatives leads to poor results. Therefore health worker has to take pains to communicate health education ot pregnanct woman and her attendants at each visits.

25 supplementation Iron and folic acid 1 cap 60 mg elemental iron
500 mg of folic acid Ca mg with vitamin D Immunization Two doses of TT 4-6 weeks apart after 16 weeks of pregnancy

26 Identify high risk cases
Elderly primigravida > 30 years Short strature < 140 cm Malpresentation, breech etc. APH, threatened abortion, repeated abortion PET, eclampsia Anaemia Twins, hydramnios, Previous IUD, MRP, CS Elderly grand multipara Post dated pregnancy Pregnancy and medical problems e.g. DM, HT, TB etc.

27 Warning signs Vaginal bleeding Swelling of face and fingers
Continuous headaches Dimness of vision Abdominal pain Persistent vomiting High fever Dysuria Passage of fluid per vaginum Marked changes in fetal movement or no movement

28 INTRANATAL CARE Aim of good intranatal care is achieved by:
High asepsis Delivery with minimum trauma to the mother and child Readiness to deal with impending complication like PET, prolonged labor, PPH Care of newborn at birth like resuscitation, care of cord, care of eyes etc.

29 INTRANATAL CARE Every pregnant woman is educated to have child birth by trained birth attendant 85% pregnancies terminate into normal delivery though incidence varies from place to place In India incidence of home delivery is 65% and 35% hospital delivery in comparison to western countries where hospital delivery is 95% Hospital delivery is safer and reduces maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality

30 Management of first stage of labor
Admission- MCH record Examination Preparation of the patient Enema Frequent urination Proper posture Food during labor Pain relief in labor

31 Monitoring of 1st stage of labor
Vital signs Progress of labor Graphic recording of labor can be done BP, Pulse, uterine contraction, descent of presenting part, fetal heart rate, leaking PV PV examination whenever indicated Total duration of 1st stage is hrs I primigravida and 5-6 hrs in multigravida

32 Monitoring of 2nd stage of labor
High asepsis Delivery with minimum trauma to the mother and child Readiness to deal with impending complication like PET, prolonged labor, PPH Care of newborn at birth like resuscitation, care of cord, care of eyes etc.

33 DOMICILIARY DELIVERY Home conditions should be satisfactory
Delivery conducted by trained dai or LHV Advantages include: familiar surroundings, less cross infection, mother can take care of other children Disadvantages include: less nursing supervision, inadequate rest, place may be unsuitable for the delivery LHV of ANM should know when to refer the case to the hospital

34 CARE OF BABY Cleaning airway APGAR score Care of cord Care of eyes

35 CARE OF MOTHER Objectives is to prevent postnatal complication
Adequate breast feeding, child immunization Provide family planning

36 BREAST FEEDING Should be initiated in ½ hour of normal delivery
4-6 hours of CS Helps to establish bond between mother and child Colostrum Rich in proteins and other nutrients Antibodies which provide protection to the newborn to various diseases and diarrhea Demand feeding No feeding bottles Exclusive breast feeding for 6 months

37 ADVANTAGES OF BREAST FEEDING
Safe clean, cheap and readily available Fully meets nutritional requirement of infant Contains antimicrobial factor e.g. macrophages, lymphocytes, secretory IgA etc. prevents against various infections Easily digested by normal premature infants Promotes bonding between mother and child Suckling helps in development of jaw and teeth Prevents malnutrition and infant mortality Helps in spacing of child birth Helps in involution of uterus

38 ARTIFICIAL FEEDING Artificial feeding and weaning started at 4-5 month. Supplementary food like cow’s milk, cooked rice, dal, vegetables etc. should be given.

39 IMMUNIZATION PROGRAM At birth – BCG, OPV 0dose 6 weeks – 1 DPT, OPV

49 SIDE EFFECTS OF ORAL PILLS
Nausea and vomiting Breakthrough bleeding Pill amenorrhea Leucorrhea Candidiasis Weight gain HT Alters carbohydrate and lipid metabolism

50 CENT CHROMAN (SAHELI) It is a non – steroidal low estrogenic compound
30 mg tab is taken twice a week for 3 months and then weekly Contraindication: same as pills Failure rate is 4 per 100 woman year Side effects: delayed cycle in 8% of cases otherwise quite safe

FAILURE RATE OF IUCD IS 2 – 5 PER 100 WOMAN YEAR

58 PERMANENT CONTRACEPTION
Male sterilization It is safer, easier, less expensive with low failure rate 0.1-1% Female sterilization post partum within seven days Interval anytime after menses Late post partum when uterus is fully involuted At the time of CS FAILURE RATE DEPENDS ON THE METHOD OF TUBAL LIGATION. LAP STRILIZATION, FAILURE RATE %
