- Morbidity and mortality of pregnant women due to COVID-19 and racial biases: an intersectional analysispor Ricardo Bruno Santos Ferreira el agosto 16, 2022 a las 12:00 am
Objective: to analyze racial biases in the context of morbidity and mortality due to COVID-19 of Brazilian pregnant women from an intersectional perspective. Method: an ecological, documental study using epidemiological bulletins intended to monitor the novel coronavirus in Brazil. Data were collected in March and April 2021 and analyzed using descriptive statistics mediated by the intersectional theory-based methodology. Results: Afro-descendant pregnant women presented an average prevalence rate of 65.18% hospitalizations and 70.85% deaths due to COVID-19 in 2020. On the other hand, the average prevalence rate of hospitalizations and deaths among Caucasian pregnant women was 32.32% and 27.23%, respectively. Conclusion: A greater difficulty to access prenatal care, a high prevalence rate of comorbidities, poor working conditions and impossibility to leave work during the pandemic, institutional racism, and necropolitics adopted by the Brazilian government are potential explanations for the vulnerable context faced by this population.
- First hour of life and COVID-19 from the view of obstetric nurses: a descriptive studypor Yasmin Orezu Farias Sampaio Monteiro de Mendonça el julio 28, 2022 a las 12:00 am
Objective: to analyze how skin-to-skin contact occurred in a municipal maternity hospital in Metropolitan Region II of the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, from the perspective of obstetric nurses. Method: a qualitative, descriptive, and exploratory study with seven obstetric nurses. The information was collected via Google Forms® and subjected to the thematic analysis proposed by Bardin. Results: two categories emerged: "maintenance of skin-to-skin contact and medical decision influence" and "evaluation of flu syndromes and COVID-19 at the beginning of the pandemic, interfering in the process of skin-to-skin contact". Conclusion: the maintenance of skin-to-skin contact was linked to the recommendations of official protocols. The power of medicine influenced teamwork, directed by the use of procedures, during labor and birth, which, in a way, limited the respective practice in suspected cases for COVID-19.

- Mothers of premature newborns in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic: a qualitative approachpor Rebeca Silveira Rocha el julio 12, 2022 a las 12:00 am
Objective: To know the perceptions of mothers of premature newborns hospitalized in the Neonatal Unit in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Method: Qualitative research carried out in June and July 2020, involving 12 mothers of premature newborns hospitalized in the neonatal units of a maternity hospital in the state of Ceará during the Coronavirus pandemic. Mothers were contacted via WhatsApp application. For the textual analysis, the descending hierarchical classification performed by the IRAMUTEQ software was used. Results: The mothers’ perception was centered on the difficulties faced in this pandemic period. The word “no” was strongly presented in the corpus of the text, evidencing the impact of the impediment of the visit, of the mothers’ permanence in the units and the fact of not being able to breastfeed. Conclusion: The provision of humanized care in neonatal units should not be limited to the newborn, and emotional support for mothers by the health team is essential.
