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.

Labour, or the process of birth is divided into three stages, which are: Dilation Delivery of the body Delivery of the placenta Dilation: this is where the strong uterine contractions cause the cervix to dilate until it is wide enough for the mother to bead to pass through- usually about 10 cm. this stage can take up to 2-24 hours. Delivery of the body: this is where the baby is expelled through the birth canal, to the outside world. The mother pushes down to expel the body. The bluish colour of the body quickly starts to turn pink as he/she starts to breathe.
Meconium Aspiration Syndrome by Bonnie Smith Neonatal Pediatric Respiratory Therapy Instructor Amy Rausch Meconium Aspiration Syndrome Meconium is a newborns first bowl movement. It is the stool that a baby passes before they have digested any breast milk or formula. Sometimes when a baby is still in the uterus, stress can cause them to pass the meconium into the amniotic fluid. The baby can then breathe the meconium into the lungs blocking the airway. When the baby is delivered the first breath can then drive the meconium even further into the lungs.
OUTLINE AND EVALUATE THEORIES AND RESEARCH on the factors influencing our attitudes to food and eating behaviour. 24 marks A'level psychology AQA A SPECIFICATION Womb A01 Theory One factor that influences attitudes towards food is thought to start before an individual is even born. The food a Mother eats during pregnancy is thought to be detected by the unborn foetus. Basically it is hypothesised that a baby can taste what its Mother eats via the amniotic fluid (a baby continually swallows amniotic fluid throughout its gestation).

What they do not realize is that it is a real, living baby inside them that can feel everything that is being done to it. A baby is only in the womb for nine months, which means that the baby`s organs, nerve receptors, brain, and limbs all develop and mature very quickly. Although some people do not realize it as true, life begins at conception. As soon as the sperm fertilizes the egg, a new life has begun.
Is it possible to detect sickle cell disease in an unborn baby? There are three ways of finding out if your unborn baby has sickle cell: Amniocentesis: Your doctor will test the amniotic fluid surrounding your baby when you’re between 15 and 18 weeks pregnant.

Fetal blood sampling: Your doctor will take a sample of blood from the umbilical cord. This can be done from 16 weeks of pregnancy.
After the doctor has completed the aspiration abortion he/she will then give the woman an ultrasound or the vacuum to be sure the procedure has been completed in the proper manner.
