Something so natural and beautiful may be just too controversial for the society we are currently living in. Breastfeeding is a natural and beautiful thing, it’s simply amazing what a woman’s body can do, but is there a looming cloud of controversy for women when it comes to breastfeeding and educating the public is the only way to put an end to breastfeeding discrimination. When a woman has a baby, she is immediately faced with many tough decisions. These decisions can include, what pediatrician to go to, what type of diapers to use, or daycare options. Menu probably isn’t at the top of the list, but there are mothers who are set on the idea of breastfeeding.
* How did the speaker address arguments and counterarguments? -The speaker addressed both arguments and counterarguments by explaining why birth control is beneficial but on the other side why people think we should remove it completely. However, she would state the opposite side but then blow that out of the way by adding something to go against it. She showed that her argument for birth control was able to outweigh the side arguments against it. Some of her arguments were to the effect that if we take away birth control, girls will end up with more diseases and it won’t stop them from having sexual intercourse.
Water Versus Love: An Analysis of Breastfeeding vs Formula Feeding Many mothers are still questioning which method of feeding is best for their infant as nutrition is essential. According to Gloria Leifer’s Introduction to Maternity and Pediatric Nursing, during the first few months of a newborn’s life, nutrition is especially important in the involvement of brain growth (221). In addition, Leifer states energy consumption is high because of the rapid growth of the infant (221). Coupled with the fact mentioned in the article “Breastfeeding and Formula Feeding” by Melissa Conrad Stӧppler, the majority of weight gained by the infant depends on the milk that he or she drinks. According to Stӧppler, whether to use formula or to breastfeed should be decided prior to delivery, because production of milk in the breasts diminishes after childbirth due to the non-stimulation of breastfeeding (“Breastfeeding and Formula Feeding”).
With reference to relevant research evidence, discuss the potential effects of alcohol consumption on pre-natal development. Drinking during pregnancy may have devastating lifetime consequences on child's health and development. Any alcohol consumed during pregnancy will soon reach the baby through the placenta and may cause harm. Foetus is very vulnerable to alcohol during the whole nine months of pregnancy with greater risks during the first trimester. Many mothers do not know that they are pregnant during the 1 trimester, and they may drink heavily.
To breastfeed or bottle feed may not be an easy decision and should not be taken lightly by moms. When deciding to bottle feed or breastfeed, there are a lot of decisions to take into consideration. To decide if you want to bottle feed or breastfeed is to do some research on both methods of feeding. Breastfeeding provides the best nutrition for a baby, but formula feeding a newborn can also produce a highly healthy, happy child. The decision to breastfeed or bottle feed is up to the mother, her comfort level, her ability to produce milk, and her religion/culture.
Breastfeeding vs. Formula. Many health associations, such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), suggest breastfeeding is the best choice for newborn babies as it “helps defend against infections, prevent allergies and protect against chronic conditions”. (Hirsch, 2008) Not all women are able to breastfeed and many decide not to. For these women, formula is the next best option.
Breastfeeding is a healthy act for both mother and child for their well being. However the way in which a nursing mother conducts herself in public can alter the act of breastfeeding from a natural necessity to being viewed as a controversial obscenity. Breastfeeding is a precious bond shared between mother and child. It is appalling that many public places in our modern day Australia still discriminate against women breastfeeding in public. In some cases women are even asked to leave the premises because they are
If there are financial situations that occur that will make it difficult for a woman to care for a baby properly, she should have the choice to abort the baby. Pro-choice activists argue that if a woman knows she will not be able to go through a childhood of inadequacy and pain. Not only would the woman be ruining the life of the baby but also he own. It is not very easy for a person to say whether they are pro-life or pro-choice until they are faced with the decision to abort or not themselves. A serious problem that should be addressed is women using abortion as a method of birth control; sometimes women go to clinics 2-3 times a month to have abortions.
If a woman gives herself some time and remembers why she made the decision she did, she may come to see her situation from a different perspective. Abortion how does it relate to my life? Well I decided to choose this topic not because I have a set opinion in this issue. I find teen pregnancy and abortions very interesting because of how much it affects our society. I know of a few women who have gone through this process.
I feel at this point when a woman has her third abortion a device such as the inter uterine device also known as the I.U.D should be considered I even think depending on a womans situation and circumstances such as how many children she may already have at home should be considerd and feel that some women should be required to have their tubes tied ( Tubal Ligation). I also feel that after the third abortion that it should be illegal to have any more than three procedure. I believe as long as the proper procedures and preventions take place that abortions can be monitored and used for REAL emergencies only. I feel this will not only help pregnancy prevention but if introduced properly can also help bring
