After the ultrasound results were in, they produced some level of surety that the pregnant mother was caring a discordant foetus (quote).
Even though members in the team deemed this proof as evidential enough to start treatment, it was insisted that some more test be carried out.
But there seem to be a generalised consensus when a difference of 15 to 25 percent or more is recorded in the weights of the two babies (quote).
A similar case of discordant growth in twin pregnancy was recorded in the Messiah Hospital where the writer practices as a midwifery student.
It is for this peculiarity that the writer finds this experience worth sharing, especially to make known the steps that were taken both at a personalised level and those taken at the organisational level, including successes that were achieved and challenges that were faced.
Personal action taken At a personal level, there were two major forms of actions that were taken.Critical Incident Analysis: Definition, Models and Frameworks A critical incident analysis is defined as “an observable human activity that is sufficiently complete in itself to permit inferences and predictions to be made about the person performing the act” (Flannagan 1954, p 332).It is “snapshot, vignette, brief episode, a situation or encounter which is of interest” (Minghella & Benson, 1995, p.
