Critical Thinking

  1. As noted, regulations for certified midwives who are not also nurses varies from state to state. Explore the difference between regulations between two or more states with different regulations. What are the advantages of each set of rules?
  2. It is sometimes difficult to rid ourselves of nomenclature that might not be as useful as in the past. For instance, the last two editions of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) eliminated the diagnosis of postpartum depression in favor of depressive disorder with peripartum onset. This change recognizes that symptoms of depression that occur after delivery may have more to do with preexisting conditions rather than strictly the events following childbirth. How useful do you think this change is for scientists, mental health professionals, and the public?
  3. What are some steps that can be taken to reduce the incidence of low-birth-weight infants?
  4. Refer to Figure 4.2 and Table 4.1. What are some reasons for such a widely differing rates of cesarean deliveries worldwide?

(See the PDF at http://www.who.int/bulletin/volumes/83/6/449.pdf.)
