VAZQUEZ-LARA, Juana Mª et al. Imminent out-of-hospital birth assistance. Actions during this process and care for the mother and the newborn. Rev. Esp. Salud Publica [online]. 2018, vol.92, e201809063.  Epub Sep 04, 2018. ISSN 2173-9110.

Assisting an unexpected birth that occurs quickly in a setting that is not a specialized health center is always a stressful situation, basically for two reasons; firstly, because the people involved in this type of care, although they are used to urgent health care, are not usually specialists in obstetrics and the management of the same and, secondly, because an imminent delivery within such a scenario involves a potential risk for both the life of the mother and the newborn if there is no quick and safe action; hence the usefulness of an updated guide for the assistance and administration of care to pregnant women who give birth outside the hospital environment, both to her and the newborn.
