The difference being that they did not have a child to want to smother as many women who end up with postpartum depression do. During my research, I learned that for women who decide that they are not going to keep their child sometime during their pregnancy, open adoptions are better for all of the people involved. It allows closure to the birth mom so that they are not constantly wondering what is going on with the child they birthed. It is also healthy for the adoptive family because it helps them not worry about what happened to the birth mother as well as a way for them to get information on any family genetics that may have them worried. I also discovered that surrogate mothers –women who choose to give birth to a child for another couple– normally do not have any negative emotions after giving birth.

Tay-Sachs Case Study Having a baby is usually a time of great happiness. Unfortunately for some, genetic mutations that are unknown at the time of conception can derail the joy that pregnancy can bring. This case study will take a look at the Trosack family who carry the Tay-Sachs disease and the process that a case manager must go through to assist the family in understanding such a devastating genetic disorder. Mr. and Mrs. Trosack are scheduled to come in for an initial visit and it is the case manager’s job to determine how to best meet the needs of Mrs. Trosack in terms of her pregnancy. Mrs. Trosack, upon finding out that she was pregnant, visited her obstetrician, Dr. Zimmerman, to determine the best course of prenatal care.
Postpartum Depression Jennifer N. Carr Liberty University HSER 500: Introduction to Human Services Dr. Mary Cooper Abstract During a time in a woman’s life that should be filled with joy and excitement, there can be moments that can dampen those emotions and replace them with darkness, a depression. While there has been no definitive cause determined for post-partum depression, research has shown that it affects a new mother and her ability to care for her baby greatly.

Speech and occupational therapy both proved to be helpful treatments with my grandmother. Family education is another great treatment strategy because according to statistics, in 7 out of 10 cases, family caregivers provide the care (Nettina, 1823). In helping care for my grandmother I encountered many of the risks and safety issues associated with dementia. The first and biggest risk and safety issue was her continuing to drive, even though she had reached a point where it was dangerous. Because she didn’t realize how impaired she was and she didn’t want to lose her independence, she resisted mine and my family’s initial pleas, so we had to have her license taken away before she caused a major accident.
Tay Sachs Counseling After several years of marriage, Rita and Peter Trosack began trying to conceive a baby but were unsuccessful for two years. Finally, the news they had been waiting for came and Mrs. Trosack was pregnant. At her initial prenatal visit, the obstetrician recommended chorionic villus sampling (CVS) because of her age. This exciting time changed direction when the CVS results indicated that her fetus was afflicted with Tay-Sachs disease. This long awaited celebratory occasion quickly turned into an emotional nightmare and a high-risk pregnancy.
This part of the poem shows that women really do suffer the loss of a baby and that sometimes some women wish they could take back what they have done. The woman who wrote this poem expressed that she felt like she had created an empty hole by choosing to abort her innocent child. In March of 2002, a retired nurse who had witnessed two full term abortions participated in an interview given by Scott Johnston. The nurse was unsure of what she was in for; she just did as she was told which was to go to the delivery room. For both of the abortions that she had witnessed, her job was to hold the baby in order to keep it in the birth canal.
