She visited Planned Parenthood multiple times before making a final decision on whether she would terminate her pregnancy. I asked Gina what the biggest reason was for wanting to get an abortion was and she replied, “I was very young and felt unprepared to bring another life into this world when I didn’t feel my life had even started. Plus, I was living with my parents and working two part-time jobs, as was my boyfriend. We just weren’t ready at all.” Much like Gina’s scenario, many young men and women cannot afford primary health care, especially prenatal and postnatal care, so they go to Planned Parenthood where they are provided with affordable reproductive opportunities. When I asked Gina how she was treated at Planned Parenthood, she said, “It was scary at first going in there because I didn’t know what I wanted yet or how much it would cost or anything.
As I got older the questions always got more about college and less about curiosity. I remember a particular nurse that made me realize this is what i wanted, that I wanted to be a nurse. I was at my regular check up, it was time for me to get my vaccinations. My regular nurse wasn 't able to give me them so they had another nurse give me them instead. The only problem was my regular nurse knew i would start crying if she wasn 't
Stephanie Keene was born at Fairfax Hospital in Virginia, the United States. At the time of her birth, she was missing most of her brain, including the cortex; only the brainstem, the portion of the brain responsible for autonomic and regulatory functions, such as the control of respiration, the heartbeat and blood pressure, had developed during pregnancy.Keene 's mother had been notified of her condition following ultrasonography,and was advised to terminate the pregnancy by her obstetrician and neonatologist but chose to carry the child to term because of "a firm Christian faith that all life should be protected. "The hospital believed that care provided to the baby would be futile,while the mother believed mechanical breathing support must
Afterwards, the patient was transferred to the Recovery area to be monitored while waking from the anesthesia. The recovery nurse attempted to locate the patient’s mother by calling the waiting room and paging but received no response. Once recovered from the anesthesia and fully awake, the patient was transferred to the post-op area for the discharge process. The recovery nurse informed the discharge nurse that he was unable to locate the child’s mother in the waiting area or by page. The discharge nurse was unsure what to do since no one could locate the patient’s mother.
However, on the second day the next doctor removed the child from the ventilator and she started to sporadically breath on her own, proving that she was not completely brain dead. By seeing this the mother refused to give up hope that one day her child will be able to recover. Since the mother is very religious and believed this was an act of God sparing her child she decided to keep her on life support and bring her home to be cared for. This is where my journey starts with this patient and her family. Once this
Kate had been through multiple surgeries, and she always tried to put her best foot forward although there were a few times that she felt angry, and she started acting unlike herself by doing things like drinking alcohol. It came a time in Kate’s life when she knew her situation was not getting better, so she wanted to stop all the medical operations. She informed her sister that she needed to petition the court for medical emancipation which in return she will gain control over her body, and the family could move on. This caused their mother to be really upset knowing that the younger sister will allow the older sister to die because she wanted to stop donating. Kate situation also caused a conflict of interest between her mother and father because the father just wanted Kate and Anna to be happy and comfortable, and the mother want her to be at the hospital to get better.
Some classes are not offered for some semesters, which delays her from finishing that program. On top of that, she needs to take an exam to be a certified medical assistant, which probably another few years. This really led me to think that community colleges cannot take you anywhere. I knew that I did not want to end up like her. I was clear in what I wanted.
I think that this film is informative about the different struggles women go through during their pregnancy. However, what is even more interesting is the documentary that we watch in class, The Business of Being Born (2008), and the guest speakers who tell us about their stories. The documentary included many pregnancies and birth processes, but it did not show mothers who abuse alcohol and drugs and the consequences that the children have to bear. The first time that I was exposed to women giving birth is from the documentary that we watched in class. Honestly, I was not prepare to those many births because I did think that the documentary would explicitly film women giving births.
The unborn child future is in a dilemma earlier on in the text as the mother contemplate whether to maintain the pregnancy or abort it. Some might argue that the unborn child is human and have rights that must be respected. The Pharmacist: A key player in the plot of the text, the pharmacist refused medication to the pregnant young girl because she did not have a prescription. She emphasized on obeying the law to latter. Question
I had to get on the phone and say in an adolescent voice that was not very convincing, ‘This is Mrs. Tan’”(10). This shows how her mother affected her childhood in the way that she even had to talk for her so that other people would understand and take her seriously. The way Tan includes this quote shows that as a child she had to help her mom in many major ways. With this quote Tan affects the audience in the way that just because she was ashamed of her mother doesn’t mean that she didn’t care for her and that other people should do the same. “My mother had gone to the hospital for an appointment, to find out about a benign brain tumor a CAT scan had revealed a month ago.

Goal 2: Kayla will comply with the treatment recommendations of her medical and mental health providers. • Kayla 's mother accepted praised from the QP and shared, "I am going to do what I have to for my kids." • Kayla 's mother reported, "when I was in foster care it was a horrible experience because I was put on a bunch of medication, so I want my kids out of foster care as soon as possible." • Kayla 's mother reported, "I have given one screen that came back negative I still have 2 more to do before court." • Kayla 's mother shared, "we are trying to move into a bigger place, but we don 't have the money due to my husband not working because of his ankle surgery."
Surprising, the messages I got out of the experience are relevant to this topic. The mothers in particular had chosen to birth their baby outside of the hospital and without any trained physicians nearby. They all chose to have their babies at home. I found each of the mothers repeating a similar line to the camera crew about the reason behind the decision to have a child in such an unorthodox and non mainstream manner. Each stated that at the hospital with the births of previous children, they had lost control.
Today in society there have been so many young women who have had unplanned pregnancies and have been undecided on what they are going to do with their babies. Apparently, most women plan on keeping their babies other on the other hand prefer to get an abortion. Today in society we have only have early abortions for women that are not close to having their babies and that they are still in their early trimester. Women who are in their late trimester are unlikely to get an early abortion because their babies have developing well in every trimesters . Also we have women who are already mothers go through these kinds of situations as well.
