OBJECTIVE To evaluate the safety and patients delivery experience of the Charité Cesarean Birth (CCB), a modified cesarean section (CS. [] Key Method Trial was conducted at the Charité University Hospital Berlin as a prospectively randomized controlled trial. Parameters of perinatal outcome for both mother and infant were assessed using modified Likert-Scales and a standardized questionnaire. Primary outcome measures were birth experience and satisfaction for parents.

Influence on operative time of immediate skin-to-skin care in low-risk primary cesarean births for breech presentation: Retrospective cohort study.

Immediate SSC following a low-risk cesarean birth for breech presentation neither prolongs the operative time nor increases blood loss during the procedure.

Doulas in the Operating Room: An Innovative Approach to Supporting Skin‐to‐Skin Care During Cesarean Birth

It is demonstrated that volunteer doulas can be prepared to provide supportive care to clients during and immediately after cesarean birth and are perceived as an important member of the maternity health care team by clients and nurses.

Exploring Parental Expectations and Experiences Around “Gentle” and “Standard” Caesarean Section

Overall, parental satisfaction with cesarean section was high, however, women in the standard group felt less involved in childbirth and both groups still preferred vaginal delivery in light of eventual future pregnancies.

Physician and Nurse Perceptions of Gentle Cesarean Birth

How care providers' professional role and characteristics may affect perception about gentle cesarean birth techniques and inform specific concerns about protocol changes is described to describe how patient safety and logistical challenges versus perceived benefits of the techniques are informed.

Cesarean delivery: Preoperative planning and patient preparation

This topic will review preoperative planning and patient preparation for cesarean delivery, which is often cited as the most common major surgical procedure performed in an operating room in the United States.

Data suggest that in women with normally progressing labor and no evidence of fetal compromise, routine amniotomy is not necessary and doctors should consider using low-interventional approaches for the intrapartum management of low-risk women in spontaneous labor.

Humanization of Cesarean Section

In the early 1980s, Professor Romano Forleo was one of the first in Europe to introduce in a Department of Obstetrics the so-called humanized childbirth, which was to introduce the “home in the hospital” rather than reproducing the home-like environment proposed by the birthing centers which sprung up in the USA in the 1970s.



The natural caesarean: a woman-centred technique

A ‘natural’ approach that mimics the situation at vaginal birth is described, allowing the parents to watch the birth of their child as active participants and the baby to be transferred directly onto the mother’s chest for early skin‐to‐skin contact.

Immediate or early skin-to-skin contact after a Caesarean section: a review of the literature.

Some evidence was provided, albeit limited, that immediate or early skin-to-skin contact after a Caesarean section may increase breastfeeding initiation, decrease time to the first breastfeed, reduce formula supplementation in hospital, increase bonding and maternal satisfaction, maintain the temperature of newborns and reduce newborn stress.

Satisfaction with cesarean section: qualitative analysis of open-ended questions in a large postal survey.

Enhanced communication during labor and delivery, and preparation or education on issues surrounding cesarean section, can reduce distress and improve women's satisfaction with birth.

Early Skin-to-Skin Contact and Breast-Feeding Behavior in Term Neonates: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Early SSC did not improve BF behavior at discharge but significantly improved the EBF rates of term neonates, which were significantly higher in the early-SSC group than in the control group.

Maternal and infant outcome after caesarean section without recorded medical indication: findings from a Swedish case–control study

To compare maternal complications and infant outcomes for women undergoing elective caesarean sections based on a maternal request and without recorded medical indication with those of women who

The research that has been performed that attempts to epidemiologically assess the link between lawsuits, malpractice premiums and cesarean section rates is discussed and factors beyond dollars and cents that may lie at the base of the relationship are considered.

Early skin-to-skin contact for mothers and their healthy newborn infants.

To assess the effects of immediate or early SSC for healthy newborn infants compared to standard contact on establishment and maintenance of breastfeeding and infant physiology, 46 randomized controlled trials were conducted.
