Abstract [en]

Background: Along with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 3 and 5, the global effort is highly focused on evidence-based practice and respectful maternity care to reduce maternal and newborn mortality and morbidity. In Bangladesh disrespect and abuse against mothers during intrapartum period is common and the midwifery profession was introduced in 2013. The aim of this study is to define the concept “Respectful Care during labour and birth” through the synthesis of text from literature and interview with Bangladeshi health care providers. Methods: The study was done through a concept analysis from the literature and 10 semi-structured interviews with third-year midwifery students, clinical midwives and midwifery faculty. Results: The study found that in low-income countries women are more vulnerable to disrespectful care in various ways like physical and verbal abuse. Midwives provide only non-harmful care, due to poor salary, and lack of quality higher education. Private hospitals and midwife led-care centers provide better service than government hospitals. Conclusion: Midwives play a vital role to ensure respectful care for a mother during labour and childbirth. Clinical implications: The findings could be helpful to develop the profession for countries where the midwifery profession is new, like in Bangladesh
