Transitional Statement – All of these complication and effects would make any parent try their best to carry out a full term pregnancy, unfortunately, the cause for preterm labors are often unknown. However, there are some things that increases the chance of preterm labor.
Birth is commonly called the “miracle of life”, and while it is, it can come with negative life-changing side effects for both the mother and child. Postpartum Depression is the depression, anxiety, etc. that could happen post-birth. It is caused by a drop in hormones, including progesterone and estrogen. Postpartum depression is not a confined to a set amount of time; this is one of the many misconceptions about this type of depression. Like many forms of the disease, it can last long after a mother gives birth. One example of a woman who was affected for decades is Bonnie Clutter from In Cold Blood, a nonfiction work by author Truman Capote. After the birth of her first child, Bonnie suffered from postpartum
It is often said that a new definition of a woman arose in the 1920s. But is that true? While most women experienced many newfound freedoms in the 1920s, black women could not explore these freedoms as easily as white women. In the novel Passing by Nella Larsen, Irene Redfield and Clare Kendry grew up in Chicago together and are now both two wives and mothers in New York City during the 1920s, but there is a big difference between them. The novel’s title refers to light-skinned black women masquerading as white women for social benefits. Irene and Clare are both light enough to “pass”, but only Clare chooses to pass everyday. Irene passes in trivial situations like getting a cab, buying movie tickets, or getting a table at a restaurant, but
In the article, “What Makes a Woman?”, American journalist, Elinor Burkett, addresses the topic of transgender females and natural females, along with their contrasting views. The article argues that transgender women can not transition and automatically generalize the entire female population. The purpose is to show that there is more to a woman than just her physical anatomy which is accomplished by Burkett. The rhetorical feature that influences the audience the most is pathos, such as when she talks about the struggles of changing from a young lady into a woman, and how a transgender can never truly understand this transformation. Another rhetorical feature that influences the audience is the use of ambiguity since the words “female”
I personally think that the film should include more risks that a woman takes or goes through during her pregnancy, such as drinking alcohol, or HELLP syndrome. A guest speaker, Jennifer Deane, mention that she used to smoke, and she often sobered herself up at a local bar. I thought it was brave of her that she told the whole class the truth of what she did during her pregnancy. Many women share limited about their pregnancy of what substances they put to feed their fetuses. The textbook mentioned that alcohol and tobacco are the some of the most harmful substance to the fetus. Smoking increased the likelihood of abortion, premature birth, and low birth weight, whereas drinking alcohol can cause the child to have a disorder called fetal alcohol syndrome (Levay and Baldwin, 2014). This part is also correlated with one of my classes, which I will talk
Throughout the article Are hospitals the safest place for healthy women to have babies? obstetrician, Neel Shah addresses the topic with ease. Dr. Shah not only brings awareness to different arguments, but he expands on them in a way to aid his opposition. Shah doesn’t only provide details and evidence, but he brings an insight to an obstetrician’s point of view. Doctor Shah develops his argument by personal credibility. Shah is an obstetrician, and an assistant professor of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive biology at Harvard Medical School. Not only does Shah mention his view on c-sections and hospital views, but he credits other obstetricians and scientists as well. In the article, he credits guidelines made by UK’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence(NICE) and how they believe women should ‘’go back to the way things were.’’ NICE proposes that there are ‘’significant benefits’’ to this and it’s even safer. Shah even correlates these guidelines to the US and UK’s healthcare systems. He takes notice to the quality of healthcare in the United States and the rebuttal received from the guidelines of NICE. ‘’I soon realized that this rebuttal largely hinged on flaws
Many believe that the parents of the Sandy Hook victims conspired to murder their children, but what they fail to realize is that all their “ evidence” is just circumstantial. In court all types of various evidence is presented to the jury. According to Citizens Information “ The general rule is that circumstantial evidence is admissible. However, the courts are careful when the only evidence in a case is circumstantial evidence. Circumstantial evidence must be closely examined and it must be looked at cumulatively. In other words, a court would be very slow and unsettled to convict a defendant on the basis of a few pieces of circumstantial evidence” ( 4). In court the Sandy Hook Conspiracy would have trouble being found true due to the giant amount of
Susan Cahill lives in Flathead Valley in Montana and was the only person in the area providing abortions to woman. Since Susan opened her clinic in 1976 she has been harassed by the local populace that do not condone abortions and her building was even burned down once, but she rebuilt it.

Since it was the only abortion clinic in Flathead, woman now need to drive to the 120 miles to Missoula just to get an abortion. Susan explains that the teenagers and the underserved population are the ones that lose the most from the clinic being destroyed because most of them can not afford to
The underlying heartbeat of this book is, as my heroine Margaret Sanger, said: “No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother.” Well said, Maggie. And, of course, that same sentiment applies to men and fatherhood as well.
So, we prepared and painted a room, bought a crib and decorated it with whales, sea creatures and rubber duckies. This felt neutral, safe and prepared for anything. Boy did we have little clue what was to come. The next several weeks I watched my wife flow through a range of emotions as anxious as I was I had no choice but had to stay calm for her benefit. Here I thought the emotional rollercoaster was for the pregnant
I first found out I was pregnant two months after turning eighteen. Looking at that positive pregnancy test, I was terrified. I had countless emotions running through my head at the same time. The first question was, am I going to be able to do this? Of course, abortion was never an option. From that moment on, I decided I needed to find the courage inside me to step up and become a parent at such a young age.
When baby is born and a woman enters motherhood, her maternal instincts come naturally, either right away or over time. The one major problem with that is that becoming a mother comes with somestereotypes and misconseptions to be a perfect one. Stereotypes and misconceptions are both opinions about a group of individuals. Misconceptions, however, are lies made up about a group. Mothers, especially new ones, are pressured so much in their lives, because they have a child to take responsibility for. All of these presumptions may add stress that a new mother is already dealing with from learning how to take care of her baby. Family members and even community members put these mothers to shame by telling them how to do something the “correct”
From the first sight adoption seems to be simple as there are many children who are in need of loving parents and there are a lot of people who desire to have full-grown family and bring up a child. But each case of adoption is unique, depends on a large amount of factors and circumstances. There are a lot of reasons why one or another person takes a decision to use adoption. Commonly it is associated with infertility. Surely, many couples come to adoption after years of unavailing attempts to have a biological child. Kelly J. Welch (2014) wrote that “each year, over 6 million couples in the United States face difficulties becoming pregnant”.
I Feel Bad About My Neck and Other Thoughts On Being A Woman is a humorous nonfiction written by Nora Ephron. Nora wrote about the things that she hates and the struggles of being a woman. As she has gotten older in time she has realized that being a woman is not that easy. Being a girl, I liked it because it is something that all women at some point in their lives will be able to relate to and it suggests that women deserve more credit for what they do.
Becoming a father in my life was the best thing that has ever happened to me. Living for someone else and not just yourself is a special feeling. Knowing that it is your sole duties in life are now to love, provide, teach, mentor, discipline and love some more. I always hear people say “ Im don 't think I 'm ready to be a parent.” and to be honest I do not think anyone is ready to be a parent. I can still remember like it was yesterday the day my son was born. The feelings leading up to the day he was born were the most nerve racking days of my life.
