Mothers’ Satisfaction with Midiwifery Care During Second Stage of Labour at University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital Complex, Akure (Published)

The midwife’s care of the woman during the second stage of labour entails guiding the labour process, offering physical comfort, emotional support, and keeping a positive relationship while ministering to the woman. Gaining the patient’s trust during the labour process requires a strong nurse-patient connection. Midwives play a crucial role in ensuring the best possible pregnancy outcome by establishing rapport with expectant mothers and their families prior to, during, and after labour. At the University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital Complex in Akure, the study evaluated mothers’ satisfaction with midwifery care during the second stage of labour. The study employed a descriptive research design. The respondents were chosen using a purposive sampling technique. Respondents included only 199 mothers who gave birth vaginally and gave their assent to the study. The majority of respondents (130(65.3%) had a positive experience with their care throughout the second stage of labour, whereas (69(34.7%, had a negative experience. The majority of respondents (127(63.8%) expressed positive satisfaction with midwifery treatment, while 72 (36.2%), expressed negative satisfaction. Finally, it was noted that a p-value of 0.05 (0.000, 2=24.705) exists between maternal satisfaction and the type of midwifery care received by the mother during the second stage of labour. It was recommended among others that Government should provide adequate facilities, staffing and conducive environment for quality health care delivery.
