Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    How many stages are in the childbirth process?

    • A.

      3

    • B.

      4

    • C.

      5

    • D.

      6

    Correct Answer
    B. 4
    Explanation
    The childbirth process consists of four stages. The first stage is the longest and involves the onset of contractions and the dilation of the cervix. The second stage is when the baby is pushed through the birth canal and is typically the most intense and physically demanding stage. The third stage is the delivery of the placenta. The fourth and final stage is the recovery period immediately after childbirth, where the mother's body adjusts and begins to heal.

    What kind of feedback mechanism is engaged in childbirth?

    • A.

      Negative feedback mechanism

    • B.

      Positive feedback mechanism

    • C.

      Feedforward control

    • D.

      Reverse mechanism

    Correct Answer
    B. Positive feedback mechanism
    Explanation
    During childbirth, a positive feedback mechanism is engaged. This means that the initial stimulus (contractions) leads to an amplification of the response (stronger contractions). As the contractions intensify, they stimulate the release of oxytocin, which in turn causes more contractions. This positive feedback loop continues until the baby is delivered.

    Which of these is an alternative to the vaginal passage?

    • A.

      Mastectomy 

    • B.

      Caesarean section 

    • C.

      Laparoscopy

    • D.

      Lopectomy

    Correct Answer
    B. Caesarean section 
    Explanation
    A Caesarean section is an alternative to the vaginal passage for childbirth. It is a surgical procedure in which the baby is delivered through an incision made in the mother's abdomen and uterus. This method is used when vaginal delivery is not possible or safe for the mother or baby, such as in cases of certain medical conditions or complications during pregnancy. Caesarean sections are commonly performed in modern obstetrics as a safe alternative for delivering babies when necessary.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What is the maximum time the second stage of labor expected to last?

    • A.

      2 hours 

    • B.

      2.5 hours 

    • C.

      3 hours 

    • D.

      3.5 hours 

    Correct Answer
    A. 2 hours 
    Explanation
    The maximum time the second stage of labor is expected to last is 2 hours. This stage begins when the cervix is fully dilated and ends with the birth of the baby. If the second stage of labor lasts longer than 2 hours, it may indicate a prolonged labor or complications that require medical intervention.

  • 5. 

    Which of these is not a method of relieving pain during labor?

    • A.

      Administration of spinal blocks 

    • B.

      Administration of opiods 

    • C.

      Administration of normal saline 

    • D.

      Relaxation techniques 

    Correct Answer
    C. Administration of normal saline 
    Explanation
    Administration of normal saline is not a method of relieving pain during labor. Normal saline is a sterile solution of salt and water that is commonly used for hydration or to clean wounds, but it does not have any analgesic properties. It is not used as a pain relief method during labor.

  • 6. 

    Which of these involves making a cut to the opening of the vagina?

    • A.

      Mastectomy

    • B.

      Episiotomy 

    • C.

      Caesarean section 

    • D.

      Laparascopy 

    Correct Answer
    B. Episiotomy 
    Explanation
    Episiotomy involves making a cut to the opening of the vagina. This procedure is commonly performed during childbirth to enlarge the vaginal opening and prevent tearing of the perineum. It is usually done when the baby's head is too large or the delivery is happening too quickly. The cut is made in a controlled manner to allow for a smoother delivery and reduce the risk of severe tears.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of these is not a complication of childbirth?

    • A.

      Emclapsia 

    • B.

      Obstructed labor 

    • C.

      Postpartum bleeding 

    • D.

      Dyspneoa 

    Correct Answer
    D. Dyspneoa 
    Explanation
    Dyspnea is not a complication of childbirth. Dyspnea refers to difficulty in breathing, which is not directly related to the process of giving birth. Complications of childbirth often include conditions such as eclampsia (seizures during pregnancy or after childbirth), obstructed labor (when the baby cannot pass through the birth canal), and postpartum bleeding (excessive bleeding after childbirth). However, dyspnea is typically not considered a direct complication of childbirth.

    What is the medical science of the female reproductive system?

    • A.

      Obstetrics 

    • B.

      Gynecology 

    • C.

      Nephrology 

    • D.

      Neurology 

    Correct Answer
    B. Gynecology 
    Explanation
    Gynecology is the medical science that focuses on the female reproductive system. It involves the diagnosis and treatment of various conditions related to the female reproductive organs, such as the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and breasts. Gynecologists are specialized doctors who provide care for women throughout their lives, from puberty to menopause. They perform routine check-ups, screenings, and provide treatment for conditions like menstrual disorders, infertility, sexually transmitted infections, and gynecological cancers. Gynecology also includes obstetrics, which deals with pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum care.

    How many are the stages of cephalic delivery?

    • A.

      4

    • B.

      3

    • C.

      7

    • D.

      9

    Correct Answer
    B. 3
    Explanation
    Cephalic delivery refers to the delivery of a baby in a head-first position, which is the most common and generally the safest position for childbirth. The process of labor and delivery, in general, can be divided into three main stages:
    The First Stage of Labor - This begins with the onset of true labor contractions and ends when the cervix is fully dilated to 10 centimeters. It includes early labor, active labor, and the transitional phase.
    The Second Stage of Labor - This stage starts once the cervix is fully dilated and continues until the baby is born. It involves the mother pushing and the actual delivery of the baby.
    The Third Stage of Labor - This final stage occurs after the baby is born and ends with the delivery of the placenta.

  • 10. 

    What is the organ through which the baby is delivered called?

    • A.

      Rectum

    • B.

      Clitoris 

    • C.

      Birth canal

    • D.

      Uterus

    Correct Answer
    C. Birth canal
    Explanation
    The organ through which the baby is delivered is called the birth canal. This is the passage that connects the uterus to the outside of the body and allows for the passage of the baby during childbirth. The rectum is not involved in childbirth, and the clitoris is a sensitive organ involved in sexual arousal. The uterus is the organ where the baby develops during pregnancy, but it is not the specific organ through which the baby is delivered.
