There are ups and downs in daily life as researcher. For me I got a ketchup effect lately which led to that three research papers were published as a result of good research teamwork. The papers concerns: childbirth experiences in slow labour, midwifery childbirth care, and midwifery education, regulation and association.
Childbirth experiences in slow labour
As part of a randomized controlled trial, we concluded that there were no significant differences in childbirth experiences between primiparous women with slow labour progress who had received early versus postponed oxytocin augmentation.
Midwifery childbirth care
Furthermore the situation of midwifery education, regulation and association in six South Asian countries were reported. Data were collected via three questionnaires constructed by the International Confederation of Midwives and United Nations Population Fund.
Midwifery education, regulation and association
We also, finally, succeeded to develop a midwifery model of woman-centered childbirth care based on a synthesis of findings from 12 of our own published qualitative studies performed in Sweden and Iceland.
