Natural Labor and Birth An Evidence Based Guide to the Natural Birth Plan Book Excerpt:

The first evidence-based book covering natural childbirth practices written by an obstetrician Natural birth plans have emerged as a battle cry of resistance among women who are dissatisfied with today’s medically-aggressive model of maternity care and high cesarean section rates. However, natural birth does not need to be a source of controversy or conflict between women and their nurses and doctors. Natural Labor and Birth: An Evidenced-Based Guide to the Natural Birth Plan seeks to broaden the medical community’s understanding of the motivations and needs of naturally laboring mothers, while also exploring why natural birth is often so difficult to achieve within our current system and what can be done to change that. It is a complete resource on the topic of natural childbirth, teaching healthcare providers and other birth workers the skills necessary to assist a woman through an unmedicated birth and reviewing the compilation of medical evidence in support of those methods. It demonstrates how natural birth can exist within the framework of traditional antepartum care and hospital deliveries, and offers alternative solutions to common challenges that often disrupt the physiologic birth process. Natural Labor and Birth: An Evidenced-Based Guide to the Natural Birth Plan is also an unbiased resource for pregnant women seeking a more thorough and scientific understanding of unmedicated birth. This guide will help women and their partners make their own birth plans from a truly informed place. It will help women understand the barriers they may face when seeking a natural birth and give them the ability to better communicate their needs and preferences. By creating room for natural birth within our maternity system, this book will help readers build a community of care where all women feel respected, acknowledged, and empowered during their birth experience.

Evidence based Recommendations for Return to Running for Women Postpartum Book Excerpt:

ABSTRACT: In the USA today, running is a very popular recreational activity. With the majority of runners being female, it is important to understand how physiological changes during and after pregnancy may affect a woman’s return to running. 1 Over the duration of pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes several physiological changes that can last several months after delivery. 2 In 2018, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) updated guidelines which introduced a fourth trimester revolving around the care of females directly following delivery. 3 This suggests that postpartum care should be addressed on multiple occasions following childbirth. While weight gain and lower extremity edema may be the most noticeable changes during pregnancy, almost every system is affected. 4 Changes that occur range from ligament laxity and muscular weakness, to cardiovascular and pulmonary decline. 4 Specifically, the pelvic floor muscles (PFM) undergo significant modifications including stretch weakness from the increased weight gain, and possible tearing during childbirth. 2 These changes may cause decreased trunk stability, pelvic floor weakness, and urinary incontinence, especially with strenuous activities such as running. 2 When running, intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) naturally increases from ground reaction forces acting on the body. 2 The abdominal musculature and PF act to prevent IAP from further increasing. If an individual has weakened PFM, urinary incontinence and altered mechanics may ensue when running. 2 Analysis indicates that women’s participation in exercise programs severely decreases after childbirth. 5 Although the postpartum period is an opportunity for women to return to exercise, most have been recommended to avoid exercise until at least six weeks postpartum. 5–7 Exercise is defined by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists as 30 minutes or more of moderate intensity per day, and women should participate most or all days. 8 Exercise consists of both aerobic cardiovascular training and musculoskeletal resistance training. 5 Recommended exercises during the immediate postpartum period involve restoring strength and function of the pelvic floor muscles. 6 This may include performing Kegel exercises and various abdominal contraction exercises. 9 Kegels are isolated pelvic floor muscle contractions that are held for a few seconds. 9 Research states the most prominent risk factors for injury while running include history of previous injury, being a novice, and overtraining. 2 Women who begin or return to running for the first time postpartum are considered novice. This is due to recent physiological and physical changes in their bodies, lack of sleep, fatigue of having a newborn, and physical recovery after childbirth, all of which puts them at a higher risk of injury. 2 Currently, there is little evidence for women in the postpartum period regarding intensity, duration, frequency, or pre-running strengthening activities. 10 To date there are no national or international guidelines for postpartum women to follow when initiating or returning to running. 10 It is paramount to provide women with evidence-based recommendations regarding a safe return to exercise following childbirth. Therefore, the following manuscript reviews evidence-based activities and protocols for women to return to running during the postpartum period.

Musculoskeletal Health in Pregnancy and Postpartum Book Excerpt:

Providing clinicians with a comprehensive, evidence-based summary of musculoskeletal health in pregnancy and postpartum, this is the first book of its kind to describe the physiologic changes, prevalence, etiology, diagnostic strategies, and effective treatments for the most common musculoskeletal clinical conditions encountered during this phase of life. Lumbopelvic pain, upper and lower extremity diagnoses, labor and delivery considerations, including the impact on the pelvic floor, and medical therapeutics will be discussed. Additionally, the importance and influence of exercise in pregnancy, the long-term implications of musculoskeletal health in pregnancy and current and future directions for research will be addressed. The childbearing period is a time of remarkable reproductive and musculoskeletal change, predisposing women to potential injury, pain, and resultant disability. Musculoskeletal Health in Pregnancy and Postpartum offers musculoskeletal medicine specialists, obstetricians and any clinicians involved in the care of pregnant or postpartum women the tools necessary to prepare for, treat and prevent these concurrent injuries during an already challenging time.
