Recent Complicated Childbirth Aid Protocol Inspired by Luba-Kasai Therapeutic Practice
Improved maternal health remains a major priority for the United Nations in general and the World Health Organization in particular, both of which have prioritised it in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDO). Surprisingly, physiological rather than psychosocial deaths are more commonly cited as causes of complications during childbirth and pregnancy, whereas in our least developed countries, where maternal mortality is high, cultural and psychological issues expose women to unwanted pregnancies and psychic traumas that manifest themselves during parturition in the form of complications. As a result of eclampsia, haemorrhage, and work defects, the woman and her baby are at risk of death. In this paper, we propose a protocol for assisting childbirth that is based on the therapeutic practises of our African cultures. Indeed, our forefathers were able to solve delivery difficulties through speech. The interview with the woman who had problems with her life and relationships created a catharsis in her, and her childbirth labour and delivery returned to normal. The protocol is made up of three parts: prophylactic psychodynamic interview Psychoeducation and psychological support are two terms that are often used interchangeably. This protocol is based on the humanistic theories of Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow, as well as Alfonso Caycedo’s sophrology, and involves subjecting the parturient to a relaxation exercise involving alternate breaths and haptonomy in a helping relationship in order to allow communication between the woman and her unborn child. This study will demonstrate the value of incorporating our complex birthing aid protocol into the existing psychotherapy arsenal in order to improve maternal health during childbirth.
