Most support at birth is requested during walking…
The study highlights the necessity of a wide range of prenatal preparation programs for providing primipara women with education and skills needed to confidently navigate to the journey of having a baby. Asst. Prof. Dr. Dilek Sarpkaya Güder, Professor Mesut Yalvaç and Professor Gülşen Vural investigated the effect of prenatal preparation education programs on primipara women’s birth plans and the effect of birth plans on the birth process. In order to acquire the most reliable and accurate outcomes, a sample group consisting of 70 women was selected among primipara (giving birth for the first time) women from the antenatal polyclinics of the two most comprehensive hospitals located in the center of Nicosia in North Cyprus. A quasi-experiment design was preferred to ensure that both the experimental and control groups are equivalent in number. 35 women in the experimental group engaged in a pregnancy pilates-supported prenatal education lasting 8 weeks and a childbirth program was prepared. 35 women in the control group were not subjected to any intervention. Investigations on the experimental group revealed that before coming to the hospital for the delivery, the women could fulfill most of their preferences such as having a shower, consuming energy food and drinks, and going to hospital when they have contractions in every 5-10 minutes. The study presents statistical data that 80.6 percentage of women in the experimental group prefer the accompanying-support of the person they want, during the delivery and 90.3 percentage of them need support in walking/changing position. Besides, the study reveals that the experimental group prefers normal delivery rather than caesarean delivery despite the labor pains and the need for more techniques to overcome the pain during delivery. The study unveils that this preference grounds on the fact that normal delivery provides not only an earlier touch with the newborn baby but also earlier breastfeeding.

10% to 20% pregnancies across the world end with Spontaneous Miscarriage…
In their other study on “”Interpersonal relations psychotherapy and preconception care after perinatal loss”, Asst. Prof. Dr. Dilek Sarpkaya Güder and Specialist Doctor Tülay Demiray presents data that perinatal losses such as abortion, therapeutic abortion, miscarriage, sudden infant death syndrome and fetal deaths affects roughly 30% of pregnancies. Globally, the infant mortality rate is 19 deaths per 1000 live births in 2015 and roughly 15% to 20% of pregnancies end with spontaneous miscarriage.

The effect of Skin-to-Skin-Contact on the Newborn and Father…
Asst. Prof. Dr. Serap Tekbaş from the Department of Birth and Women’s Health Nursing of the Faculty of Nursing of Near East University made a verbal presentation titled “The effect of Skin-to-Skin-Contact on the Newborn and Father”. In her study, she underlines the importance of kangaroo care (holding the infant in skin to skin contact) in adapting the infant physiologically and psychologically to the external environment, initiating parents-infant bonding and relation, and making it easier for parents to accustom themselves to their new roles. The study presents data that skin-to-skin contact initiates the bonding process between the parents and infant in a shorter time and provides contribution to the physical, emotional and mental development of the newborn babies.
