Background & Aim: The quality of support a mother receives from a companion midwife during labor plays an important role in maintaining the health of all family members. Therefore, the present study aimed to evaluate the relationship between the attendance of a companion midwife (DULLA) and maternal and neonatal consequences.
Materials &Methods: This research implemented during 2013-2018. The research population included mothers referring to the maternity wards of hospitals in Saveh, Iran. The participants were selected based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria related to the maternal and neonatal consequences of childbirth. In addition, data analysis was carried out using descriptive and inferential statistics.
Results: In this research, no significant difference was observed between the groups in terms of demographic characteristics. However, there was a significant difference between the groups in terms of the type of childbirth, and the number of natural deliveries was higher in the case group (P=0.001). Moreover, the duration of the active phase of the first and second stages of labor was less in the control group, compared to the other group (P=0.001). Similarly, post-partum delivery was lower in the control group and there was a significant difference between the groups in this regard (P=0.001). Nevertheless, no significant difference was observed between the groups regarding the initiation of lactation within one hour of birth (P=0.08).
Conclusion: According to the results of the study, the attendance of a companion midwife improved some of the childbirth consequences. Therefore, it is recommended that more research be conducted in this field of the health system and the necessary corrective interventions be carried out in this respect.
