    Medical Imaging in Pregnancy

    Why do pregnant women require special care in medical imaging. Around 10 million patients benefit every day from X-ray or nuclear medicine procedures used to diagnose diseases and guide treatment. One million of them are women in childbearing age. Some of them may be pregnant. In medical imaging there is a group that requires special attention and that is female patients who may be pregnant. It is very important to know whether a woman is pregnant or not because the fetus has a high sensitivity to radiation, especially in the first three months of pregnancy. Health professionals need to identify a potential pregnancy before the exam. They ask the patient…

    UN steps up efforts to reduce childbirth deaths, a key development goal

    Every year more than 500,000 women die from causes related to pregnancy and child birth. 50 percent of those deaths occur in Sub-Saharan Africa where maternal mortality is the leading cause of death for young women. In Ethiopia alone, some 20,000 women die each year while giving birth, and thousands face life-long disabilities. Five weeks ago, 27-year-old Samuni Kitoh gave birth to a stillborn – her eighth child. She was lucky to survive. “My husband thought that the heavy work I was doing was the reason for the stillbirth.” Samuni and her husband are subsistence farmers. They depend on their own crops to feed their family. Barely surviving off the…

    Surprise babies: the women who didn’t know they were pregnant

    I had heard of people having kids in that surprise sort of way but I never thought that it would happen to me. A lot of people have nine months to prepare for a baby, whereas we had two weeks at the most. I went to the bathroom, and there was like just a weird pain and he just like came out. My name’s Lara and I’m 23 and 15 months ago I had a surprise baby. I was always super-ambitious with my career and I wanted to own my own business. I was just studying and going out with friends and I was planning a year of trip. The…

    #Momsplaining with Kristen Bell: Babies, Babies Everywhere, Part 1

    Hi, I’m Kristen Bell. You might remember me from the movie Pootie Tang. Speaking of pootie tang, I’m here today in a labor and delivery room. Because what’s more beautiful than bringing a brand new slimy, squished up little person into the world? Nothing. That was rhetorical. I’ve done it twice, so I feel pretty confident I can help another mama do it. Plus, I’m hoping she’ll share her epidural. Let’s go catch some babies. [MUSIC – “CHARGE”] (SINGING) To all you moms out there, keep doing it right. [MUSIC PLAYING] This is good. This is me. Passing out prizes. [MUSIC PLAYING] Hi, everyone. Hi. Look what you did. I…

    The linguistic genius of babies | Patricia Kuhl

    I want you to take a look at this baby. What you’re drawn to are her eyes and the skin you love to touch. But today I’m going to talk to you about something you can’t see. What’s going on up in that little brain of hers. The modern tools of neuroscience are demonstrating to us that what’s going on up there is nothing short of rocket science. And what we’re learning is going to shed some light on what the romantic writers and poets described as the “celestial openness” of the child’s mind. What we see here is a mother in India, and she’s speaking Koro, which is a…
