The UN health agency said it was revised to benchmark used by health professionals worldwide because it has caused a surge in interventions like sections that could be unnecessary
The UN health agency said Wednesday it has been revised to a benchmark. Since the 1950s, a woman progressing through plowing has been considered “abnormal”, said Olufemi Oladapo, a medical officer with the World Health Organization’s department of reproductive health.
When doctors and other care providers, the “tendency to work”, or “the tendency to work”, leads to a higher rate of labor, leading to the “increased medicalization” of work, he said. In new guidelines unveiled Thursday, the WHO called for the elimination of the one centimeter per hour benchmark. “Oladapo told reporters in Geneva.” “The recommendation is that we should not be used to identifying women at the risk of adverse outcome,” he added. While rates of interventions vary from region to region. Interventions that were once used to manage commonplace, the agency warned. “Pregnancy is not a disease and child is a normal phenomenon, where you expect the woman to be able to accomplish that on her own without interventions,” Oladapo said. “However, we have been in the process of becoming more and more involved in the medical profession, and we have had many situations in which we are not required.” Whereas one of the benchmarks, the new WHO guidelines say that for a woman delivering her first child, it should not be a normal practice. For a subsequent pregnancy, the figure drops to less than 10 hours.
