The project ”Family Friendly Maternity Care” (FFMC) within the Barents Health Programme 1999-2003 was primarily initiated as a follow-up of a previous project ”Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative” (BFHI). While the BFHI project focused on feeding routines in maternity wards in Northwest Russia, the main objective of FFMC has been care of women and mothers during pregnancy, delivery and the immediate postpartum period.
A large number of activities, such as conferences and seminars for doctors and midwives, and production of teaching material have been undertaken. Two questionnaire surveys ”Voices of Women in the Barents Region” were carried out in 2000 and 2002. The results showed an ongoing process of change in Russian maternity wards for the benefit of mothers and babies.
