Abstract [en]

Background: The concept of ‘continuous labour support’ is a non-medical support, one-toone support and continuous presence. Aim: The aim of this study is to define the concept ‘continuous labour support’ through the synthesis of texts from literatures and interview data with Bangladeshi health care providers, in an attempt to clarify its meaning enabling comprehension and use of the concept in clinical practice and education. Design: The study design is concept analysis with data consisting of written texts from literature and nine semi structured interviews in nursing institutes, nursing colleges and maternity wards in Bangladesh. Measurements and finding: The result of the fieldwork phase of this study regarding continuous labour support has been categorized according to the midwifery and quality care model developed. The main challenges are staff shortages, heavy workload, and low level of autonomy in medical hierarchy and insufficient and interrupted supplies. Conclusion: Continuous support during childbirth is an important and essential component of midwifery practices, but it is not widely and universally practiced in the Bangladeshi hospitals due to different policy levels and contextual causes. Clinical implications: Practical findings from the concept analysis confirms the relevance of the concept in the midwifery context.
