This was a prospective cohort study, carried out on mother baby pairs selected randomly from the delivery done at our hospital during the period of June 2009 to Dec 2012. The study protocol was reviewed and approved by Institutional ethics committee on the agreement that patient anonymity must be maintained, the finding would be treated with utmost confidentiality and for the purpose of this research only. A total One hundred and twenty one (n=121) mother infants pairs were followed up at the time of birth and prospectively for the first 30 days of new born life with daily clinical examination. Infants with Rh incompatibility, congenital malformation, major systemic disease evident at birth and any unrelated complications arising during hospital stay were excluded from the
The recommended time for an infection to clear up is 10 days but the parents took their child back only after a couple of days complaining of more symptoms and didn’t allow the full course of medication to be completed. Instead, the doctor gave Rocephin, ceftriaxone, shots and hoped that it would clear up the infection. This seems to work for a moment as Blaire is more comfortable during exams and the ears have less fluid, but another viral infection has caused Blaire to feel more uncomfortable and the doctor reverted to the 10-day course of Omnicef. Again, the parents return short of the recommended 10 days with Blaire and the doctor administers another Rocephin shot. The doctor also recommends an appointment with an ENT specialist for a possible tympanostomy
One month before the event she attended the outpatient clinic and an echocardiogram was performed, which showed: normal left ventricular dimensions, wall thickness mildly increased, normal left atrium and aorta, mild left ventricular dysfunction with an estimated ejection fraction of 50%, hypokinetic basal inferior and mid inferior segments and mitral inflow filling pattern of delayed relaxation (according to her age). Right chambers dimensions and right ventricular function were normal (TAPSE of 20 mm Hg), a calcific trileaflet aortic valve with normal leaflet excursion was observed, with normal gradients and no regurgitation. Mitral valve was normal, without regurgitation, and tricuspid valve and pulmonary valve were also normal. There was absence of pericadial effusion and both septae were
Khalieghya’s family received word when she was five months old that the doctors had found a liver match because another child passed and the family members were generous enough to donate the child’s organs. Without this life saving transplant, Khalieghya would be dead; although, thanks to another grieving family, she is just like every other child. Instead of being locked away in a hospital her whole life, now she can play, run, jump, go anywhere she wants, and only has to take a small dose of anti-rejection medication twice a day (“A Chance to Be Just Like Other Children”). A little girl’s life was saved due to an inevitable accident, no single person can see the future; therefore, everybody should be prepared to give one last gift to another if their life is cut

Effects of Birth Control Margaret Sanger is the woman who created and carried out tests on the birth control pill. A second woman, Katharine Dexter McCormick, funded the creation of the pill with what would be eighteen million dollars today (Planned Parenthood n.pag.). These two women created the birth control pill to stand up for women’s rights and help families around the world. The primary motive for developing a birth control pill was a high number of unplanned pregnancies. According to Planned Parenthood, “In the developing world only one out of five women used a safe and effective method of family planning” (n.pag.).
The evidence to support breastfeeding as the ideal choice for infants is quite overwhelming, and backed by some of the most trusted experts in the healthcare industry. Organizations from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to the World Health Organization (WHO), a health committee formed until the scope of the United Nations, recommend that mothers nurse their infants, as breast milk has been shown to fight off infections, defend against allergies and even ward off a number of diseases and infections. In fact, the AAP believes that mothers should exclusively breastfeed for the first six months of the child 's life, and recommends continuing breastfeeding until the baby reaches 12 months in
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.
