About the Project

Aim and purpose

The aim of the project is to obtain information that can produce documentation and evidence for the most preferable of two methods used for the delivery of the baby`s shoulders during birth which causes the least vaginal and perineal damage.

The purpose of the project is to reduce the degree and number of vaginal and perineal tears by at least 10% by supporting the baby continuously in the direction of the birth canal during the birth and thus delivering the posterior shoulder first – Willer`s method.

How the project is carried out

The project is drawn up as a randomized control study where women who have not previously given birth vaginally, are randomly chosen by lot, for either delivery of their baby`s anterior shoulder or posterior shoulder first.

The main objective is to determine whether or not there is a difference in the number and degree of vaginal and perineal tears sustained by the mothers when these two methods are used.

Project Organization

The control group is made up of: Senior Midwife Anne Fabricius, Consultant Obstetrician Lone Krebs and project leader, midwife Hanne Willer.

The project is approved by the Regional Scientific Ethical Committee for Zealand, Denmark, and adheres to Department`s regulations for god ethics in connection with both patient contact and patient confidentiality.
