The purpose of this study was to elucidate what kinds of effects are obtained through birth-review conducted by midwifery students in the midwifery practicum.

Materials and Methods

A qualitative analysis was conducted on the description in "Birth-review contents" sheets and "Assessment contents" sheets recorded by five midwifery students who carried out birth assistance (n=42) in the midwifery practicum. For ethical considerations, the study was conducted after obtaining approval from the Ethical Committee of Toho University, and the data analysis was conducted only after the students had graduated from the university when a subject evaluation of the students finished.


For the birth-review performed collaboratively with the students and the puerperants, seven categories were extracted; [Thinking conceived in the process of delivery], [Delivery scene recalled], [Assessment of birth experience of own], [Feelings for own baby], [Gratitude for family], [Assessment of students] and [Will for new life].

For students' thinking and judgement seen in the "Assessment contents" sheets described by the students based on the "Birth-review contents", four categories were extracted; [Satisfaction level of delivery], [Reasons for satisfaction level of delivery], [Assessment of puerperants' psychological status] and [Assessment from the childrearing point of view].


As learning effects of the birth-review conducted by the students in the midwifery practicum, it was suggested that 1) an understanding toward puerperants and the delivery process is much enhanced, 2) the thinking focused on satisfactory delivery is created, and 3) it becomes a good opportunity to get feedback from puerperants.
