You could search all properties or a selected subset only. Shoulder dystocia. Shoulder dystocia is a specific case of dystocia whereby after the delivery of the head, the anterior shoulder of the infant cannot pass below, or requires significant manipulation to pass below, the pubic symphysis.

Shoulder dystocia

It is diagnosed when the shoulders fail to deliver shortly after the fetal head. Shoulder dystocia is an obstetric emergency, and fetal demise can occur if the infant is not delivered, due to compression of the umbilical cord within the birth canal.[1] Signs[edit] One characteristic of a minority of shoulder dystocia deliveries is the turtle sign, which involves the appearance and retraction of the fetal head (analogous to a turtle withdrawing into its shell), and the erythematous (red), puffy face indicative of facial flushing. This occurs when the baby's shoulder is obstructed by the maternal pelvis.[2] Procedures[edit] A number of labor positions and/or obstetrical maneuvers are sequentially performed in attempt to facilitate delivery at this point, including : Gestational Diabetes: The Emperor Has No Clothes - FROM RONNIE Falcão's MIDWIFE ARCHIVES.

However, this does not mean that blood sugar issues are irrelevant to your pregnancy and birth. It just means that the research is inadequate. In fact, my experience tells me that they are even more important than most midwives and obstetricians generally say.

Harold Buttram, M.D. writes in the Townsend Letter for Doctors about vaccines. He states that there is a serious trend of deteriorating health among North American children. Allergic disorders, such as asthma, are rapidly increasing both in frequency and severity. There is a pattern of sickliness among today's children that was unknown several generations ago. A majority of children are on antibiotics frequently or in some instances continually.

If this adverse trend is in fact taking place, what are the causes? One consequence of childhood vaccinations may be that of the chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), now estimated to afflict some five million young adults, predominantly women. These changes are precisely those which could be predicted from multiple vaccines on the highly immature systems of infants and children. Live virus vaccines require incubation in animal tissues.

Vaccine controversies

(1802) Although medical and scientific evidence surrounding vaccination demonstrate that the benefits of preventing suffering and death from infectious diseases far outweigh rare adverse effects of immunization,[1] there were vaccination controversies almost 80 years before the terms vaccine and vaccination were introduced in 1798–1800. Opponents have claimed that vaccines do not work, that they are or may be dangerous, that individuals should rely on personal hygiene instead, or that mandatory vaccinations violate individual rights or religious principles.[2] These arguments have reduced vaccination rates in certain communities, resulting in epidemics of preventable, and sometimes fatal, childhood illnesses.[3] The success of immunization programs depends on public confidence in their safety.

World Health Organization. Three Habits for Optimal Brain Health. November 10, 2011 by Bill Jenkins, Ph.D Isaac Asimov said, “The human brain…is the most complicated organization of matter that we know.”

Three Habits for Optimal Brain Health

[i] And it’s true. Our amazing brains are both a product of biological evolution and a reflection of the world around us. First, the stuff of the brain – grey matter, white matter, fluids, blood vessels – is made up of nutrients from the plants and animals we consume from the world around us. Second, in terms of brain function, our interaction with our environment has a major impact on both brain structure and brain health. Given that our brains are a product of evolution (which is outside of our control) and environment (which is only partially under our control, and often less than ideal), how can we keep our brains as healthy as possible, from birth all the way through old age? The pathway to optimal brain health comes from the small choices we make every day. Here are three important steps everyone can take toward optimal brain health:
