    Woman Claims Hypnosis for Childbirth Works

    Kathryn, welcome, and you are someone who used this hypnotherapy. Tell us about it. I actually didn’t run into hypnosis for birth until I was in my third trimester. My whole birthing process, I had some kind of crazy experiences. I was very nervous, I suffer from anxiety and I happened to come across hypnosis for birth, and come across Grace, who was able to send me a bunch of information on it and it helped me understand what I was doing, understand what I wanted, what I needed, and what a lot of the fears and a lot of the anxiety was stemming from and address it. And then…

    How Can Childbirth Be Easier? | Darwin, MD #2

    A woman who is in her eighth week of pregnancy sees her family medicine doctor for her first-ever prenatal visit. She and her partner spent months trying to conceive. Now, she is excited but stressed. Her sister successfully gave birth at home using the water birth method. Meanwhile, her best friend chose to have a planned C-section and now wants her to do the same. Our pregnant friend doesn’t want to make the wrong decision and is counting on her family doctor for advice. What should she do? And how can we incorporate evolutionary medicine into the mix? My name is Florence Yuan, and this is Darwin, MD. [Darwin, MD…

    Ectopic pregnancy | NHS

    An ectopic pregnancy is any pregnancy that implants outside the uterus or womb which is where a normal pregnancy implants and grows. The majority of ectopic pregnancies develop in the fallopian tube which links the ovary to the womb. My husband and I were trying for a baby. We tried for about six months without any real success. I had what I thought was a period after two weeks, although it was light and it was a strange colour as well. The symptoms are pain and bleeding. Often it’s just spotting, so very light bleeding when the woman goes to the loo, or it could be heavier bleeding like a…

    Why we need to talk about childbirth in the U.S.

    My name is Patrisse Cullors and I am a senior fellow at MomsRising. Phew. So many women across the country, especially Black women, face some of the most horrific circumstances when showing up to the hospital to give birth. Here is my story.

I knew that my baby’s feet were turned down. I knew that I had a high-risk pregnancy, but I was still determined to labor and give birth to my…

    Should pregnant women avoid using shower gel?

    Should pregnant women avoid shower gel? A recent report from the royal college of obstreticians and gynaecologists highlighted the challenges of dealing with potential but unproven risks to child health during pregnancy. The report’s authors acknowledge that most exposures to environmental chemicals experienced by pregnant women probably pose minimal risk. To be on the safe side though, they suggested a “safety first” approach that includes, amongst other things, minimizing the use of shower gel, using fresh food whenever possible and not purchasing new cars whilst pregnant. The report is based on growing concerns that the cocktail of chemicals we are exposed to may present risks we are currently unaware of.…

    Who delivered your baby? | Ashley Greenwald Tragash | TEDxUniversityofNevada

    Translator: Madison Shirley Reviewer: Hélène Vernet There is a difference between something that you do and something that is done for you.

She’s working hard through the contractions. As a contraction breaks, Erin has just enough time to whisper to me, “Ashley, I don’t know…
