Kremena Miteva, Zdravka Atanasova

Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Midwifery care is an essential factor on which the optimum completion of labor depends. Therefore, the correlation between the quality of the professional activities of midwives in the delivery room and the level of satisfaction of patients is of great importance.

AIM: This scientific study is conducted in order to explore and analyze the opinion of patients on the role of the modern midwife during normal birth.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study includes 76 patients /women who have given birth/ from the Univer­sity Hospital for Active Treatment `Stoyan Kirkovich` - Stara Zagora in the period January-June 2016. A cri­terion for inclusion in the study was a definitive diagnosis - vaginal delivery. A sociological method was used - anonymous questionnaire. The data were processed with the statistical package SPSS.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: The results allowed us to draw the conclusion that there is a tendency to neglect the integrated approach in the implementation of obstetric care at the expense of instrumental care. Also, pa­tients define the work of the midwife as a significant factor for the optimal flow of the process of birth.
