Tiffany Robbins Professor Gillespie English 101 October 25, 2012 Breast Lumps in Women under Forty is Not a Reason to Panic When a woman is in the shower, at least once a month she supposed to do a breast self-exam. As she slowly palpitates in a circular motion, she stops, she can feel a lump. Panic immediately sets in. Every Lifetime movie she has ever seen flashes through her head. According to the Canadian Medical Association only 1 out of 100 women under the age of 40 learns she has breast cancer (Heisey, Ruth, McCready, David).
Obstetric and gynecological sonographers examine the babies being developed in a mother’s womb. When performing an ultrasound on someone there are steps that should be followed. First of all, before starting an ultrasound put some jelly on the woman’s stomach. Secondly, make the woman’s uterus easier to visualize by pushing any loops of her bowl up and out of the way, especially during early pregnancy. The bowel contains air or gas and ultrasound waves do not travel well through air.
Mercedes Kim Mrs. Eckhart Child Development November 2, 2012 Ambiguous Genitalia Male? Female? Approximately one in one thousand babies are born with ambiguous genitalia. This report will explain the birth defect in details and tell what can be done to treat those with this condition. I will also tell you about ways to help to deal with the problems that can go along with this birth defect such as identity problems.
Researches say pervasive development disorders occur in about five to 15 children per 10,000 births. PDDs are most common in boys than in girls, with the exception of Rett's syndrome, which occurs almost always in girls. How are pervasive development disorders diagnosed? If a child is showing signs of having a Pervasive development disorder, the doctor will do an evaluation by doing a medical history and physical exam. There are no laboratory tests to diagnose a PDD, the doctor may use different tests such as X-rays and blood tests to determine if there is a physical disorder causing the
Following an intensive screening and selection process the donor endures a few weeks of invasive medical procedures. First the donor and the woman who will carry the child must coordinate their menstrual cycles. Typically the donor and the recipient take birth-control pills, followed by shots of a synthetic hormone such as Lupron; the combination suppresses ovulation and puts their cycles in sync. After altering her cycle the donor must enhance her egg supply with fertility drugs in the same way an infertile woman does when trying to conceive. Shots of a fertility hormone are administered for seven to eleven days, to stimulate the production of an abnormally large number of egg-containing follicles.
Lots and lots of babies in this time period. Pregnancies started young, and often came back to back not allowing mothers to have much time to heal from the previous. This movie portrays it as Loretta Lynn has her first early in her marriage to Oliver and having four children by the age of twenty (20). This is definitely a stand true stereotype that I can understand. Working in the emergency department of our local hospital, I see so many young girls ranging from fourteen (14) and older having babies while still being babies themselves.
Neonatal lupus occurs in infants whose mothers have lupus (New York Times Health Guide). When a pregnant woman has lupus, she can pass it on to her son or daughter, and if the child gets neonatal lupus he or she could have skin problems, rashes, liver problems, or low blood cell counts, and some could even have serious heart defects (New York Times Health Guide). The only good news about neonatal lupus is that it is very rare, so the chances of having a child with it are very low (New York Times Health
Abortion is the termination of the entire pregnancy yet selective reduction is performed to improve the survival rate of the remaining fetuses and also the mother. Selective reduction is performed early in the pregnancy, normally between weeks 9 and 12, it is most often performed when there are four or more fetuses present, can be used to reduce triplets to twins, and with a fetus with severe defects (www.webmd.com). Infants born part of a multiple pregnancy are at increased risk of prematurity, cerebral palsy, learning disabilities, slow language development, behavioral difficulties, chronic lung disease, and death (Multifetal Pregnancy Reduction, 2013). These risks play an important role in a mother’s decision to utilize selective reduction. Maternal risks of a multi-fetal pregnancy include hypertension, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, and postpartum hemorrhage (Multifetal Pregnancy Reduction, 2013).
Outline the stages of development of attachment’s in babies and behaviours what can be observed in stages. Evaluate the evidence provided by psychologists in defining the stages. The first real attachment a baby will have would be the mother as this is the first person the baby would have seen. Human babies are not mobile immediately after birth as they are helpless. They have a relatively long period of immaturity and only begin to crawl at about 8 months.
Some babies are born with growth deficiencies due to the alcohol consumption during pregnancy. They are short in length, under weight, and have small heads (Wong). Facial abnormalities include small eye openings, drooping eyelids, skin folds across the inner corners of the eyes, a flattened or missing bridge of the nose, underdeveloped philtrum, thin upper lip, cleft lip, and cleft palate (Wong). There are major organ defects, especially of the heart such as septal defects, tetralogy of Fallot, and patent ductus arteriosus (Wong). They may have problems with their respiratory system such as apnea, pulmonary hypertension and SIDS.
