Technical Brief: 2018 WHO Intrapartum Care Guidelines for a Positive Childbirth Experience

More than a third of maternal deaths and a substantial proportion of pregnancy-related, life-threatening conditions are due to complications that arise during labor, childbirth, or the immediate postpartum period. Improving quality of care around the time of birth is essential for reducing stillbirths and maternal and newborn deaths. This technical brief from MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership reviews 26 new recommendations from the WHO’s 2018 recommendations on intrapartum care for a positive childbirth experience, and recommends policy and program considerations for countries adopting, adapting, and implementing the recommendations.
