Different Cultures and Their Beliefs
There are different sorts of pregnancy such as cultures and how the mum has to follow rules and be careful
Asian women suffer the largest proportion of the world’s maternal deaths. To reduce this, policymakers and healthcare providers must encourage women with traditionally low rates of maternal health care utilization to access services to help the women so that there are fewer deaths during pregnancy and birth.
Many Asian women continue to practice a wide range of traditional beliefs and practices during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. More information is needed on the benefits of formal maternal healthcare services; such educational programs should be geared towards not only women but also husbands, parents, and in-laws. By recognizing and appreciating common local beliefs, providers can be better positioned to provide culturally competent care. Instead of reducing the choices available to women during the birth experience, providers should understand, respect, and integrate cultural interpretations of childbirth and the needs of women and their families.
Some cultures after the birth the women go to stay with the women in the family for several weeks, of course there are many different cultures with different types of routines.
There are the gifts for the wives in certain countries the husbands buy after putting their wives through all the pain so they may receive a very expensive gift of maybe a ring or some sort of gold jewelry this is always to thank the wife for the gift of their new arrival.
The way the new mums are treated after differs very much in each and every country also in most hospitals around the world midwives used to be just female now there are male midwives as well, however they may not always be allowed in the delivery room if the women don’t request them and still has to be a female midwife.
Also age range is different when a lot of women finish having babies the average age is about 35 years old but when you go to a country where the women will have babies until they are sometimes past their sixties but sometimes the babies can be very small or have problems but this doesn’t always happen.
So the last part of the pregnancy is always the most exciting but mum is looking forward to the big day and wrapping everything up and finally having the baby in their arms.
A lot of babies can be born premature but this does not mean that there will always be problems, but occasionally baby may need to go to scabu special care baby unit just t be checked out sometimes they may need a short stay.
Other countries work differently with women and the premature babies they may have different remedies to help or cure the baby.
Roughly there are around about one in ten babies born too soon this is very risky and some do not survive because of lack of amenities for treatment which is what every country need to to help prolong the life of a newborn and give a chance to the new baby that was born too early.
