cuts, Less Imperial, less artificial inseminations and, above all, much less the dam-sections In Switzerland have decreased in the last years, medical interventions in the natural reproductive and birth process.
most significantly, and that shows in the episiotomy, the expansion of the birth canal through an incision between the Vagina and Anus. In the 1980s, the intervention in hospitals was a Routine almost. In 2012, he was for a quarter of the natural births, 2017 to only one-sixth, which represents a decline of almost 8 percentage points. According to new Figures from the Federal office for statistics BFS.
the results confirmed what experts have emphasized for decades: the dam-sections are unnecessary in most cases. Although considerably less dam-sections were made, did not experience severe complications namely. Although it came to cracks in 2017, with just over half of all natural births the Dam, but in 95 percent of the cases were of low severity.
caesarean section is not always indicated
caesarean sections have declined in 2014, by 1.4 percentage points. In an international comparison, the Swiss Emperor is a rate cut with around a third according to the BFS, but still "very high". Women with private insurance choose even in almost half of the cases, the most convenient, because easily term inierbare and low-pain birth by caesarean section.
most frequently the Emperor are indexed cuts but medically, for example, in the case of multiple births (80 percent), or if the child is in a seat of the trousers or any other abnormal situation (72-94 per cent).
Artificial insemination on low
Before the birth of the pregnancy, and also this will help becoming increasingly rare in Switzerland. Treatments for medically assisted reproduction are gradually decreased since 2010. Between 2016 and 2017, they fell by 3.2 percentage points. You are now at the lowest level since 2007.
the average age of the women who have started a first-line treatment, was around 36 years and remained in the last ten years. The In-vitro-fertilization resulted in 44 percent of the women treated in pregnancy. A total of 2188 alive, were registered in the reporting year births after artificial insemination, 1.2 percent more than in 2016. 15.9 percent of births due to reproductive medical treatment, it was multiple births.
mothers are getting older
the age of the mothers has been increasing since 1970. The proportion of women who are 35 years old or later, the mother, has eight since then, from 11 to about 32 percent, almost tripled. Negligible, the share of Teenagers is pregnancy: in 1970 they accounted for 3.6 percent, 2017 is only 0.4.
Although the increased age of the primipara, medical risks, and is the maternal mortality rate in Switzerland consistently low: Between 2007 and 2016 have been annually counted in an average of five deaths per 100'000 successful deliveries.
in Total, were carried out in the reporting year, 85'990 deliveries in health institutions, 98.3 percent in hospitals, the Rest in the birth houses. More than half were non-deliveries, instrumental vaginal, a third caesarean births, and a tenth of a suction Cup or forceps births. This distribution is comparable with that in the year 2012.
