My thoughts of these two questions are two fold – my emotional response due to experience, and my intellectual response due to research. First the emotional response - both my children and myself, needed medical interventions either during pregnancy, or immediately post-partum. With my first daughter I had a very uneventful pregnancy and had every hope to breastfeed and be the perfect natural mom. I first noticed something was off while trying to nurse in the hospital. My daughter did great latching on at first, but started to grow frustrated and fussy.
Although my grandmother did have her first born delivered at home, this was not by choice and she reports that she was scared for the health of her and her baby and would not do it again. While we chose the safe, medical approach with anesthetics our babies were all born healthy. The hospital stay varies in days with mine and my mothers deliveries. She had her babies delivered via caesarean delivery so her healing process took more time.
It is clear by reading Jane Black’s case that she has many issues that could possibly affect her pregnancy, along with her own life. Other than the obvious problems listed in her chart, such as drowsiness, difficulty focusing, weakness in her right side, inability os full use of her hand, and constant thirst, as a social worker, I have potentially found other issues. It is stated that Mrs. Black has three young children, one who has Cystic Fibrosis. Mrs. Black must have a lot of stress on her as she is the one who constantly ensures that her child’s lungs are clear. Mrs. Black most likely is the parent who spends the majority of time taking care of her other kids as well.
Emily initially spoke to me about the reasons she didn’t attend school however whenever I asked her about her relationship with her mother and the reason she does not go home she often change the subject. Speaking with Emily further she was able to express
Of course with each option there will never be a 100 percent guaranteed of pregnancy taking place. I feel it’s important to have conversations with both parents about not only about the procedures, but the psychological effects that infertility treatments can have in the long run for both parents. As a social worker discussing infernality treatments with a family can certainly be challenging in many ways. I feel that it’s important to be mindful, and supportive of the decision making process. Offering guidance to both parents is something a social worker can do to help sort through the many options couples may have.
It is obvious to anyone speaking to her for more than a few minutes that something is wrong with her ability to think. Her dementia may also limit her ability to communicate. Your family member requires daily supervision if not constant supervision to make sure that she is safe. She needs assistance with the activities of daily living such as bathing and dressing and can no longer live
In attempts to encourage breastfeeding it was found that many women discontinued breastfeeding due to a lack of support during the early months of trying to breastfeed. (Grummer-Strawn p.107). This response from women is why it is vital that proper, supportive postpartum care is given to both mother and child. Successful breastfeeding mothers require “early breastfeeding initiation, no formula supplementation during the hospital stay, rooming-in, on-demand feedings, no pacifiers, and provision of information about breastfeeding upon discharge” (Grummer-Strawn p. 107). These six points are representative of everything it takes to initiate and stabilize breastfeeding.
At first you may think it unheard of for a woman to eat her own placenta after her baby is born. However, this practice is a growing trend among new mothers who hope to get rid of postpartum depression, restore energy levels and recover faster from childbirth. One out of every seven women develops postpartum depression. This condition occurs as a result of hormone levels decreasing after birth.
When I think about different cultures, their beliefs in health care my culture and emergency room (er) visits come to mind. This past week I had two er visits with close family members. My granddaughter’s visit which was an ordeal with needles waiting, and the fear of the unknown and what is to come. Then the next day my mother fell her face a bloody mess. Same thing needles testing, and waiting.
My Grandmother suffered serious health concerns this year and we were all very worried. When we arrived to visit her, nothing was more evident than the impact that togetherness has on human behavior and interaction. Years pass, people change and age but togetherness
These belief systems are a great concern to parents who follow the compulsory vaccination schedule. Dr Karen Plant said, “The low rates mean a loss of ‘herd immunity’ which exposes those too young or ill, such as babies to be vaccinated, to disease and infection, which Mullumbimby has already been exposed to in the past” of the risks of low vaccination in communities. Mullumbimby mothers Toni Mcaffree both lost a child, to the Whooping Cough after an outbreak in the between 2009- 2013. Mother and Health Care worker Kalee Suthers, “They were to young to be vaccinated, so they relied on the rest of the community to be vaccinated to offer protection, but numbers wernt high enough” said when speaking of the deaths of the two babies.
Postpartum depression is something some mother 's get after having a baby. Postpartum needs to be more talked about to mother 's. There are many mother 's who go diagnosed with postpartum because they don 't know what it is. Postpartum can happen right after birth, although some mother 's don 't notice until around three weeks after the baby. This is a very common disease through out mother 's. You can actually get post partum with second birth, even though you never had it after your first. With postpartum you can feel hopeless and worthless as a mother.
It 's Your Choice We are not all perfect and we don 't live in a perfect world. What 's good for one, does not mean it is good for everyone. It is rather quite sad when it comes to nursing, some women will ask should I breastfeed? Rather than being asked, "let 's try breastfeeding, and if you feel in any way you are not coping.
Feeding in the hospital, right after birth, helps to keep a healthy and trusting relationship between the mother and the infant. There is a great deal of learning in the first few hours of life. Latching as soon as possible is the best and most advised way to prevent from having issues with latching in the future. There are some cases where the milk ducts can become plugged, something that happens if the baby is not feeding very well. Breasts can become infected.
In the virtual simulation, I was faced with multiple unexpected challenges such as my daughter’s diagnosis of ADHD and her temporary drug use and felt uncertain of what to do. So like most new parents, I took it one day at a time and accepted the fact that I might not get it exactly right every time. I also took advice from professionals, close friends and family when it was necessary. As long as I was putting my daughter’s well-being first and continuously showing her how much I loved her, I was satisfied with the decisions I made. My ultimate goal was to guide her and make sure she grew into a responsible, mature, and intelligent woman.
