International Symposium on Maternal Health » International Symposium on Maternal Health will take place in Dublin in September 2012 » About us. The Committee for Excellence in Maternal Healthcare is organizing this event.
This Committee is a group of physicians and other health care providers who are committed to achieving excellence in healthcare for mothers and babies. We strive to provide best-practice care to all women who may experience difficulties in their pregnancies and wish to further develop the expanding practice of treating illness during pregnancy to allow for a healthy and happy gestational period for both mother and baby.

Research on medication safety in pregnancy often utilizes health plan and birth certificate records.
This study discusses methods used to link mothers with infants, a crucial step in such research.We describe how eight sites participating in the Medication Exposure in Pregnancy Risk Evaluation Program created linkages between deliveries, infants and birth certificates for the 2001-2007 birth cohorts. We describe linkage rates across sites, and for two sites, we compare the characteristics of populations linked using different methods.Of 299,260 deliveries, 256,563 (86%; range by site, 74-99%) could be linked to infants using a deterministic algorithm.
At two sites, using birth certificate data to augment mother-infant linkage increased the representation of mothers who were Hispanic or non-White, younger, Medicaid recipients, or had low educational level. 90 seconds to change the world: Alan Greene at TEDxBrussels. BBC Breakfast delayed cord clamping very interesting... - July 2013 Birth Club. Cutting cord too early puts babies at risk, NHS warned. Childbirth experts are urging the NHS to reverse the policy it has pursued since the 1960s of clamping and cutting a baby's umbilical cord as soon as it is born, citing mounting evidence that this may leave newborn babies deprived of vital blood from the placenta.
Medical bodies, senior doctors and the National Childbirth Trust (NCT) want maternity staff to stop routinely clamping the cord within seconds of the baby's arrival and instead leave it untouched for anything from 30 seconds to whenever it stops pulsating naturally, usually within two to five minutes. They believe that infants may be at risk of becoming anaemic by being denied the chance to receive as much as a third of their blood volume from the placenta through the cord. Anaemia can later be associated with brain development and can affect cognitive ability. Mother sings praises of delayed clamping of umbilical cord. Denise Roche vividly recalls the worrying colour her son Callum was when he was born in 2006 after a 43-hour labour.
"He was fully alert but looked pretty blue and it was a good while before his hands and feet began looking pinky and normal," she says. Happily, when her daughter, Millie, arrived in 2008, "she looked a lot better when she came out – very, very pink", the way parents want their newborns to be.
When Callum underwent Apgar tests, which assesses physical and mental function one and five minutes after birth, he scored just five out of 10. Millie, though, scored nine both times. Relevant initiatives. Today, we are a group of motivated individuals and organizations who have the ambition to break down pregnancy taboos and build an infrastructure where experts, medical professionals, academics, companies, NGOs, and patients can come together to share their knowledge and experiences, effectively bringing this issue to the forefront of healthcare priorities.
Having been involved with TEDxBrussels since its inception five years ago, we are frequently inspired by the impact that new thinking – and new collaborations between passionate people – can have on old problems. And it is precisely with a new way of thinking and collaboration that we will bridge the data deficit gap. Currently, we are discussing with key stakeholder and experts to build a coalition dedicated to breaking pregnancy taboos.
Next steps are to build our first task force and begin our journey towards shattering pregnancy taboos. Do you want to be with us from the beginning? Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Merck for Mothers.
