6th Annual Midwifery Seminar

17 April 2019 8:00 am - 4:30 pm IMC Subang Jaya

Course Description

Obstetrical conditions such as gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and preeclampsia have serious effect on the mother and the fetus during pregnancy. Quality management of GDM with multidisciplinary treatment approach helps to prevent the development of type-2 diabetes mellitus which leads to micro and macro vascular problems, neonatal jaundice and unexplained fetal death. Preeclampsia on the other hand causes generalised endothelial damage and multi-organ impairment in the mother.

Pregnant mothers are also vulnerable to harmful infection such as HIV. The Progress report on HIV/AIDS 2018 Malaysia revealed that there was 70% of HIV new infections happened among people aged 20 to 39 years in the year 2017. It is alarming even though Malaysia has eliminated mother-to-child transmission of HIV (WHO 2018).

Both antepartum depressive symptoms (ADS) and antepartum anxiety symptoms (AAS) are prevalent in expectant mothers and fathers, and largely an undetected problem in Malaysia. After delivery these mothers are at risk of puerperal depression and psychosis due to rapid drop in hormones, lack of sleep, fatigue and inadequate support system. Therefore, the concept of husband friendly should be welcomed to provide support and care to mothers during antepartum, intrapartum and postpartum.

The issues faced by childbearing women during antepartum, intrapartum and postpartum are endless. Hence the knowledge you obtain from this seminar would enhance service provision of high quality midwifery care and greater job satisfaction.
