Congenital defects of closure of one or more vertebral arches, which may be associated with malformations of the spinal cord, nerve roots, congenital fibrous bands, lipomas, and congenital cysts. These malformations range from mild (e.g., SPINA BIFIDA OCCULTA) to severe, including rachischisis where there is complete failure of neural tube and spinal cord fusion, resulting in exposure of the spinal cord at the surface. Spinal dysraphism includes all forms of spina bifida. The open form is called SPINA BIFIDA CYSTICA and the closed form is SPINA BIFIDA OCCULTA. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, p34)
A common congenital midline defect of fusion of the vertebral arch without protrusion of the spinal cord or meninges. The lesion is also covered by skin. L5 and S1 are the most common vertebrae involved. The condition may be associated with an overlying area of hyperpigmented skin, a dermal sinus, or an abnormal patch of hair. The majority of individuals with this malformation are asymptomatic although there is an increased incidence of tethered cord syndrome and lumbar SPONDYLOSIS.

Graphic monitoring of labour. (1/1242)

The parturograph is a composite record designed for the monitoring of fetal and maternal well-being and the progress of labour. It permits the early recognition of abnormalities and pinpoints the patients who would benefit most from intervention. Observations are made from the time of admission of the mother to the caseroom and recorded graphically. Factors assessed include fetal heart rate, maternal vital signs and urine, cervical dilatation, descent of the presenting fetal part, and frequency, duration and intensity of uterine contractions.  (+info)

Cortisol in fetal fluids and the fetal adrenal at parturition in the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii). (2/1242)

Glucocorticoid hormones may play a critical role in initiating parturition in tammar wallabies. In this study, we investigated the concentration of cortisol in fetal fluids and cortisol production by fetal adrenals over the last 3 days of the 26-day pregnancy and within 24 h postpartum. The fetal adrenals almost doubled in size between Days 24 and 26 of pregnancy, and their cortisol content increased over 10-fold during this period, from 10 pg to over 100 pg per adrenal pair. After birth, neonatal adrenals continued to grow, but cortisol content fell dramatically to 20 pg. The prepartum increase in adrenal cortisol was reflected by a substantial rise in cortisol concentrations in yolk sac fluid, allantoic fluid, and fetal blood, which were below 10 ng/ml on Day 24 and rose to over 40 ng/ml by Day 26. Cortisol concentrations in neonatal blood decreased postpartum, mirroring decreased cortisol content in neonatal adrenals. Cortisol production by the fetal adrenal was stimulated in vitro by ACTH and prostaglandin E2, suggesting that the in vivo increase may be stimulated by release of ACTH from the fetal hypothalamic-pituitary axis and prostaglandin E2 from the placenta. These results indicate that increasing cortisol production by the fetal adrenal is a characteristic of late pregnancy in the tammar wallaby and support the suggestion that fetal cortisol may trigger the initiation of parturition in this marsupial species.  (+info)

Desensitization of oxytocin receptors in human myometrium. (3/1242)

In the present study, we investigated the possible mechanisms by which oxytocin might regulate oxytocin receptor (OTR) density. Exposure of cultured myometrial cells to oxytocin for a prolonged period caused desensitization: the steady-state level of oxytocin binding was 210 x 10(3) binding sites/cell, but this was time-dependently reduced to 20.1 x 10(3) sites/cell by exposing the cells to oxytocin for up to 20 h. In contrast, Western blotting data showed that the total amount of OTR protein was not affected by oxytocin treatment for up to 24 h. Flow cytometry experiments demonstrated that OTRs were not internalized during this treatment. However, RNase protection assays and Northern analysis showed that in cultured myometrial cells OTR mRNA was reduced by oxytocin treatment to reach a new low steady-state concentration. Analysis of this mRNA in myometrial biopsies from 17 patients undergoing emergency Caesarean section showed how it decreased with advancing labour. Samples obtained after 12 h of labour contained approximately 50 times less OTR mRNA than samples obtained from patients in labour for less than 12 h. We speculate that this decrease in OTR mRNA represents in-vivo OTR desensitization.  (+info)

Control and assessment of the uterus and cervix during pregnancy and labour. (4/1242)

Preterm labour and resultant preterm birth are the most important problems in perinatology. Countless efforts have failed to establish a single effective treatment of preterm labour, partly because the mechanisms regulating the uterus and cervix during pregnancy are not well understood. New knowledge is needed to inhibit early progression of labour (uterine contractility and cervical ripening), and adequate quantitative tools to evaluate the uterus and cervix during pregnancy are lacking. In this review, we outline studies showing that the uterus (myometrium) and cervix pass through a conditioning step in preparation for labour. This step is not easily identifiable with present methods to assess the uterus or cervix. In the uterus, this seemingly irreversible step consists of changes in the electrical properties to make muscle more excitable and responsive to produce forceful contractions. In the cervix, the step consists of softening of the connective tissue components. Progesterone appears to have a dominant role in controlling both the uterus and cervix, as antiprogestins induce early, preterm conditioning leading to preterm labour. Apparently, nitric oxide (NO) also controls conditioning of the uterus and cervix. In the uterus, NO, in concert with progesterone, inhibits uterine contractility. At term, NO production by the uterus and placenta are decreased and allow labour to progress. In contrast, NO in the cervix increases at the end of pregnancy and it may be the final pathway for stimulating cervical ripening by activation of metalloenzymes. The progress of labour can be assessed non-invasively using electromyographic (EMG) signals from the uterus (the driving force for contractility) recorded from the abdominal surface. Uterine EMG bursts detected in this manner characterize uterine contractile events during human and animal pregnancy. A low uterine EMG activity, measured transabdominally throughout most of pregnancy, rises dramatically during labour. EMG activity also increases substantially during preterm labour in humans and rats. This method may be used one day to predict impending preterm labour and identify control steps and treatments. A quantitative method also assesses the cervix, using an optical device which measures collagen fluorescence in the cervix. The collascope estimates cervical collagen content from a fluorescent signal generated when collagen cross-links are illuminated with excitation light of about 340 nm. The system has proved useful in rats and humans at various stages of pregnancy, and indicates that cervical softening occurs progressively in the last one-third of pregnancy. In rats, collascope readings correlate with resistance measurements made in the isolated cervix, which may help to assess cervical function during pregnancy, and indicate control and treatments.  (+info)

CD9 is expressed in extravillous trophoblasts in association with integrin alpha3 and integrin alpha5. (5/1242)

The CD9 molecule is a 24-27 kDa cell surface glycoprotein, which may be related to Schwann cell migration and adhesion. In this study, we examined the expression of CD9 in human extravillous trophoblasts, which invade into the endometrium during implantation and placentation. CD9 was detected immunohistochemically on the extravillous trophoblasts in the cell columns of first trimester placentae, but not on villous trophoblasts. In the second and third trimester, CD9 was highly expressed on the extravillous trophoblasts in the basal plate of placentae, and in the chorion laeve in the fetal membrane of term placentae. The molecular mass of CD9 in the chorion laeve was shown to be 27 kDa by Western blotting. The mRNA of CD9 was also detected in the chorion laeve by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Proteins were purified from chorion laeve by affinity chromatography with anti-integrin alpha3 and alpha5 monoclonal antibodies and Western blotting, revealed that CD9 was associated with both integrins. These findings indicate that CD9 is a differentiation-related molecule present in the extravillous trophoblasts. Since it is associated with integrin alpha5 which has been proposed to regulate trophoblast invasion, CD9 may be implicated in trophoblast invasion at the feto-maternal interface.  (+info)

Myometrial constitutive nitric oxide synthase expression is increased during human pregnancy. (6/1242)

Nitric oxide (NO), derived from L-arginine by the action of nitric oxide synthase (NOS), is a mediator of many diverse biological activities, including vasodilation, neurotransmission and inhibition of platelet adhesion. A role for NO in the maintenance of rat and rabbit pregnancy is supported by a variety of studies. A recent study in women demonstrated that myometrial inducible NOS (iNOS) expression was greater in the early third trimester than either the late third trimester or in the non-pregnant condition, suggesting that increased iNOS expression is involved in the maintenance of human pregnancy. Constitutive NOS (cNOS) expression was not determined. The aim of this study was to compare constitutive NOS (both eNOS and bNOS) expression in the human non-pregnant uterus, preterm pregnant uterus (25-34 weeks gestation) and term pregnant uterus (>37 weeks gestation) using immunohistochemistry and Western blotting. Preterm pregnant samples were taken from women with a variety of pathologies necessitating early delivery. We found that eNOS and bNOS protein concentrations were greater in the preterm pregnant myometrium than non-pregnant myometrium. eNOS, but not bNOS, protein concentration was lower in myometrial samples obtained at term compared with those obtained preterm. We conclude that the constitutive isoforms of NOS are also up-regulated in human pregnancy and may play a role in the maintenance of myometrial quiescence.  (+info)

Comparison of urinary 6beta-hydroxycortisol/cortisol ratio between neonates and their mothers. (7/1242)

AIMS: To assess CYP3A enzyme activity in human neonates by measuring the urinary 6beta-hydroxycortisol/cortisol (6beta-OHF/C) ratio. METHODS: Fifty-six mature male neonates with normal delivery, seventeen of their mothers and twenty-four healthy non-pregnant young women participated in this study. Urinary 6beta-OHF/C ratio was determined on the day of birth in neonates and their mothers. In addition, changes in the ratio after birth were determined in neonates. RESULTS: On the day of birth, the urinary 6beta-OHF/C ratio of neonates was significantly higher than that of their mothers (20.5 vs 6.9). In contrast, no significant difference was observed in the mean ratio of urinary 6beta-OHF/C between women with and without pregnancy (6.9 vs 9.0). The urinary 6beta-OHF/C ratio after birth was decreased day by day in neonates. CONCLUSION: These results indicate that the high urinary 6beta-OHF/C ratio in mature neonates on the day of birth is independent of the activity of CYP3A enzyme in their mothers.  (+info)

A double-blind comparison of 0.125% ropivacaine with sufentanil and 0.125% bupivacaine with sufentanil for epidural labor analgesia. (8/1242)

BACKGROUND: This study intends to evaluate the benefits of the administration of intermittent bolus doses of ropivacaine (0.125%) compared with bupivacaine (0.125%) after addition of sufentanil for analgesia during labor. METHODS: One hundred thirty American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status 1 or 2 parturients were studied. The 90 initial patients were assigned randomly to receive 10 ml bupivacaine, 0.125%, plus 7.5 microg sufentanil (initial bupivacaine 0.125% group) or ropivacaine, 0.125%, plus 7.5 microg sufentanil (ropivacaine 0.125% group). Forty additional patients were recruited and received 0.125% bupivacaine plus 7.5 microg sufentanil (additional bupivacaine 0.125% group) or 0.100% bupivacaine plus 7.5 microg sufentanil (additional bupivacaine 0.100% group). The duration of analgesia, visual analogue scores for pain, motor blockade (using a six-point modified Bromage scale), patient satisfaction scores, nausea, pruritus, heart rate, and blood pressure were recorded. RESULTS: Bupivacaine 0.125% and ropivacaine 0.125% coadministered with sufentanil provided rapid and complete analgesia. Onset of analgesia occurred after +/-15 min and lasted +/-90 min. After the third epidural injection, patients in the ropivacaine group experienced significantly less severe motor blockade than patients in the initial bupivacaine 0.125% group. At this point, 93% of the patients in the ropivacaine group were free from motor impairment versus 66% in the bupivacaine group (P<0.05). Comparable levels of motor blockade were obtained in both additional groups. Patients' evaluation of their analgesia was worst in the bupivacaine 0.100% group. CONCLUSIONS: Ropivacaine 0.125% with sufentanil affords reliable analgesia with minimal motor blockade.  (+info)

Webcat Plus: Effect of labor on plasma concentrations and postpartum clearance of cell-free, pregnancy-associated, placenta-specific microRNAs, Objective: This study aimed to investigate the effect of labor on plasma concentrations of cell-free, pregnancy-associated, placenta-specific microRNAs (miRNAs) before and after delivery. Method: In the non-labor group (32 women), cesarean section (C/S) was performed before the beginning of labor. In the labor group (32 women), C/S was performed after the beginning of labor. Plasma concentrations of cell-free, pregnancy-associated, placenta-specific miRNAs (miR-515-3p, miR-517a, miR-517c, and miR-518b) were measured by real-time quantitative PCR. Each miRNA concentration was compared between the non-labor and labor groups. Results: Before C/S, plasma concentrations of cell-free, pregnancy-associated, placenta-specific miRNAs in the labor group were significantly higher than those in the non-labor group (P=0.001 for 515-3p, P=0.002 for 517a, P=0.001 for 517c, and
I am a long early-labourer - with two of my babies I niggled and contracted for days before labour finally kicked in. With my first it was for just a day - it was exhausting, sometimes frightening and I felt like I was in this off no-mans land because I wasnt officially in labour and so it was just me and my husband and my trusty Sheila Kitzinger book.. Nothing much is written about early labour - and in pregnancy we might not seek this information because we mainly want to know about full-on labour and managing those big contractions.. But it can be early labour that throws us the curve ball, that knocks our confidence and takes us by surprise by being hard to manage.. Early labour can be brief and manageable but it can also last for 2-3 days with discomfort, pain, tiredness, frustration and thats before labour properly kicks in.. It can often be caused by the position of a baby in the womb - lying on the right, lying back-to-back or just not quite lined up on the left can create a back ...
This study was undertaken to evaluate the relationship of progesterone and 5α-pregnane-3,20-dione (5αDHP), a major progesterone metabolite, to human parturition. The serum concentrations of 5αDHP prior to, during and following parturition were to be established, as well as its maternal and fetal concentration in different modes of delivery. Some of its effects in vitro were also to be studied. Progesterone was included primarily as a reference substance. 5α-pregnane-3α-ol-20-one (3αOH-DHP), a potent CNS depressant progesterone metabolite, was included in the in vitro study.. Progesterone: The maternal serum concentration of progesterone is stable during the last three weeks of pregnancy preceding spontaneous labor and through labor. The various modes of delivery studied were elective cesarean section; ocytocin resistant fuctional dystocia; normal, effective, induced labor; and normal, effective, spontaneous labor. The serum progesterone concentrations in dystocia and at elective cesarean ...
This is the first and longest of the three stages of labor. It involves three phases which are early labor, active labor, and transition into delivery.
It is not uncommon at all for a woman to feel nauseous during labor. This is particularly true during the active phase of labor. However, nausea can occur at any time during labor, and should be considered as being relatively normal.. One of the important things to remember about labor is that you need to stay well nourished during labor, and to avoid dehydration. Eating small and frequent meals or snacks during labor can help you to load complex carbohydrates, such as pasta and grains, into your system. These will give you a steady and slow release of energy that you will need during the physically difficult portions of labor. Late in labor, you will want to switch to simple carbohydrates, such as fruits, honey, and juices or even energy bars. Many mothers feel at least a little nauseous during labor, and dont want to eat. They may find food to be unappetizing. To help with this, make sure to bring foods that are friendly to your stomach, and that are easy to digest. Keep away from fatty or ...
Induction of labor is being increasingly used to prevent adverse outcomes in the mother and the newborn.This study assessed the prevalence of induction of labor and determinants of its use in Africa. We performed secondary analysis of the WHO Global Survey of Maternal and Newborn Health of 2004 and 2005. The African database was analyzed to determine the use of induction of labor at the country level and indications for induction of labor. The un-met needs for specific obstetric indications and at country level were assessed. Determinants of use of induction of labor were explored with multivariate regression analysis. A total of 83,437 deliveries were recorded in the 7 participating countries. Average rate of induction was 4.4% with a range of 1.4 - 6.8%. Pre-labor rupture of membranes was the commonest indication for induction of labor. Two groups of women were identified: 2,776 women with indications had induction of labor while 7,996 women although had indications but labor was not induced.
Downloadable! This paper reviews the theoretical arguments for and against linking international labor standards to trade. Based on theory alone it is difficult to generalize about the effect of labor standards on efficiency and equity. Some economists have argued that international labor standards are merely disguised protectionism. An evaluation of determinants of support for legislation that would ban imports to the United States of goods made with child labor provides little support for the prevailing political economy view. In particular, members of Congress representing districts with relatively many unskilled workers, who are most likely to compete with child labor, are less likely to support a ban on imports made with child labor. Another finding is that the prevalence of child labor declines sharply with national income. Last, an analysis of compulsory schooling laws, which are often suggested as an alternative to prohibiting child labor, finds a tremendous amount of noncompliance in developing
This weeks One Born Every Minute was a little better than last weeks in that it showed women who had regained a certain amount of control over their labour. The birthing pool labour was particularly nice as it showed how women should be in labour, relaxed and in control. This attitude helps keep everything normal and instrumental and operative births can be avoided. The women who coped the best kept themselves upright and did not do what most women automatically do when in labour - lie down on the bed. This is the worse thing that you can do as your uterus has to work against gravity and the contractions have to get stronger and so can cause the sensation of pain. Its nice when the guys cry when their baby is born. Awwwwww. If you want a pool birth then a birthing centre is your best bet. Your normal labour ward may have a pool but they are usually so busy that they will say it is unavailable even if it is not. Make sure the unit where you are booked have a good record for pool use and state ...

Today is a federal holiday in the United States, the one we call Labor Day. In most countries the labor movement celebrates on May 1 (May Day), but the origin of the US holiday ironically was in Canada where the fight for the nine-hour working day in the 1870s was celebrated at the end of summer. American labor leader Peter J. McGuire saw one of these celebrations and organized the first one in New York in 1882. After US soldiers and marshals put down a peaceful strike at the Pullman plant in bloody fashion in 1894, a fear of escalating labor unrest (the depression of 1893 was in full swing) led Grover Cleveland and a terrified Congress to make Labor Day a federal holiday, thereby separating it from the international workers day in May and throwing a sop to labor. By law, it is always the first Monday in September, so today is officially Labor Day in the US. For most people - ordinary people - it marks the end of summer. But for many ordinary people this year, it is not a holiday from work ...
OBJECTIVE: To study patterns of induced labor at term in hypertensive women. STUDY DESIGN: We performed a retrospective cohort study using the Consortium on Safe Labor database; a multicenter study of labor and delivery practices from electronic medical records in 19 hospitals. 55,572 women were studied: 28,254 nulliparas and 27,318 multiparas, undergoing induction of labor at term without a prior cesarean with a singleton vertex live born fetus. Four hypertensive groups were defined: chronic hypertension (n=1164), gestational hypertension (n=1861), preeclampsia (n=1513) and superimposed preeclampsia (n=655), compared to controls (no hypertension, n=50,379 ...

Important tips for not hindering the progress of labour, and comfort measures for dealing with the sensations of labour.
Reason #2 Its all in Your Head*. Welllllll heck, reason number two that labor doesnt start is that there is an emotional or mental block that is keeping your baby from getting in synch with your natural going into labor rhythm. Whats that you say I didnt know that I could mind block my labor?! Well sure you could, just like if your hang out up in your head to much you can stop (or significantly slow) other things, you know, that use that same general area. Just think about that for a minute. Ever tried to get dowwwwwnnnnn but your mind wouldnt let you? Same thing with birth, but now instead it looks like anxiety about birth, or the postpartum period or work stuff, or Can you wait to have the baby? Today is not a good day. Anxiety will stop a labor in its tracks, so when control type A peeps get wound up because birth and labor arent carrying on according to their time lines, that in surging adrenaline stops oxytocin cold. Think Ice Ice Baby…. If we hop over to the emotional side of ...
This is easiest to see with regard to labour markets. While spot markets for labour have existed, they tend to be relatively rare. Generally, people providing goods and services they do not make or provide themselves need to use labour with some regularity, and labour with specific skill sets and characteristics (such as reliability). A contract offers income to the provider of the labour on the basis of providing particular skill sets and personal characteristics. The promise of future income (to the labour provider) and future use (to the hirer of the labour) gives the hirer of the labour reason to engage in necessary training (even if only in the procedures of the firm) and a reasonable expectation of the labour being available. The hirer can then have a reasonable expectation of providing the goods or services he can then offer to customers ...

by David Talbot. The NHS is on the ballot paper in May declared the Labour leader at Prime Ministers Questions as he sought to solidify his partys clear advantage on this most important, and emotive, of issues. That the NHS is set to be centre stage at the forthcoming general election is partly due to naked politicking, and partly due to the dire forecasts for our health service. Both main combatants are well aware of the financial and demographic peril the NHS is in, but both continue to besmirch the debate with clichéd attacks on how the Tories cant be trusted on the NHS or, a new variant of the same line, Labour are ruining the NHS in Wales.. It is essential that politicians are honest with the public about the scale of the challenges facing the NHS. This is particularly true of the Labour party who are prone to nostalgia and playing on sentiment, invoking the spirit of Nye Bevan and having a nonagenarian address party conference, for instance, but specifically because the party is ...
I was talking to a co worker about going into labor at work and she responded with an- oh dont worry about it, your last labor started in the evening so this one will too. Is that true (cant say Ive heard it before)? If you have gone into labor on your own more than once did it start at similar times of the day? If yes, what time? If no, what was the difference?

Social and Working Conditions. Child Labor. Hershey is committed to the elimination of the worst forms of child labor, as defined by ILO Convention 182, from its supply chain. We expect our suppliers to support and participate in industry efforts aimed at the elimination of such practices wherever they exist in the supply chain.. Forced/Prison Labor. Suppliers must not utilize or benefit in any way from forced or compulsory labor, nor utilize factories or subcontractors that force unpaid labor. The use of official prison rehabilitation programs is not a breach of the Code.. Working Hours and Wages. Suppliers should provide wages at least equal to the applicable legal minimum wage and any associated statutory benefits. If there is no legal minimum wage, suppliers must ensure that wages are at least comparable to those at similar companies in the local area or to prevailing industry norms. Working hours should reflect applicable legal norms and overtime hoursshould be paid at the legally ...

AR Brown, a former Labour voter who bitterly resents the partys stance in the 2014 referendum, says Scotlands radical progressives will be in a knife-fight with the UKs radical conservatives over the next two years, and Scottish Labour needs to pick a side.. So, heres the thing. For a long time I voted nothing but Labour, but I stopped doing that, and in 2014 I not only voted Yes but, for the first time in my life, I knocked doors in that campaign. Its likely that Ill be even more involved if theres ever another chance to secure self-government for Scotland.. I dont doubt that a fair proportion of Labour Hames readership after reading that first paragraph arent reading this one. We all know that theres an impressive set of fortifications separating the Labour Party from those who voted Yes, and the guns on that bastion point both ways. Maybe theres even a few people who will doubt my right to write anything on a site dedicated to progressive politics when Im clearly a small-minded, ...

A typical human childbirth will begin with the onset of contractions of the uterus. The frequency and duration of these contractions varies with the individual. The onset of labour may be sudden or gradual. A gradual onset with slow cervical change towards 3 cm (just over 1 inch) dilation is referred to as the latent phase. A woman is said to be in active labour when contractions have become regular in frequency (3-4 in 10 minutes) and about 60 seconds in duration. The now powerful contractions are accompanied by cervical effacement and dilation greater than 3cm. The labour may begin with a rupture of the amniotic sac, the paired amnion and chorion (breaking of the water). The contractions will accelerate in frequency and strengthen. In the transition phase from 8cm-10cm (3 or 4 inches) of dilation, the contractions often come every two minutes are typically lasting 70 - 90 seconds. Transition is often regarded as the most challenging and intense for the mother. Some mothers say things ...
Like any expectant mother, Suzanne Altomare was excited about the imminent birth of her second child. But eight days after her due date in November 1995, the 34-year-old was informed by her obstetrician, Dr. Thomas Kahan, that he wanted to induce labor. There is typically no medical necessity to induce healthy moms until they are at least two weeks overdue, but Kahan considered it the safer course. Altomare trusted her doctor, and she went along with his recommendation. To jump-start her labor, Altomare was given two doses of Cytotec, a drug known to soften the cervix and cause uterine contractions that are more frequent and powerful than normal labor. What Altomare did not know was that Cytotec has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in pregnant women. The drug, made by G.D. Searle Corporation, is approved only for treating peptic ulcers. Its package insert explicitly warned that Cytotec may cause the uterus to rupture (tear) during pregnancy if it is used to ...
Now, lets take another leap of thought. Think about your choices about childbirth, what assessments, monitoring and procedures your birth professional is speaking with you about, your concerns about pain, possible pain relief options and even possibly having a non-labouring birth, or your health issues that might affect your birth choices and think about your Birth Plan. When you learn the skills in The Pink Kit, you can take those skills with you into whatever birth you find yourself having. Regardless of where or with whom you will birth or whatever is happening to you or around you, you will have another contraction. If you are having a non-labouring c/s then you can use these resources to prepare for the birth of your child anyway , thus giving you a deep sense of connection to the process of childbirth. If you are going to labour and give birth, you can learn the truly universal skills, which work. Youll still be breathing, so why not learn the Directed Breathing (the most natural way ...

19 months later I was in labor with #2. I found someone who would take me as a VBAC, which was no easy task. Even more fun considering that I was overdue. I found myself in labor at 41 weeks 4 days. They were getting ancy, but I wouldnt give in! Finally got things going along on my own and was psyched to be in natural labor. Went in knowing a lot more, but not much more about OP. With their VBAC nervousness, the policy was in this VERY small hospital (3 total patient rooms for OB!) that the OR had to be cleared and ready to go, staff on campus and docs waiting - the entire time I was in labor. No pressure!! Since I was sort of on a timetable, the OB requested to break my water (about 3cm) and I let him. I spent most of my time squatting in the hallway willing the baby to come down. After many hours, they checked me and I was at 5cm. Midwife wanted to check during a contraction (UGH!) and I was STILL at 5. And she broke the bad news. She could stretch me to fully dilated but the babys head ...
We wish to extend our congratulations to OSullivan et al on the content of their paper. However, we would like to add a note of caution to the broader conclusions that might be made following a reading of the PICO version.. The paper demonstrates that feeding obstetric patients did not alter the incidence of vaginal delivery. We believe that it is important to emphasise that feeding parturients is not without risk.. The successful reduction in maternal morbidity and mortality is a triumph of modern medicine. One turning point in this reduction was the recognition and subsequent prevention of Mendelsons syndrome. Aspiration of gastric contents and resulting chemical pneumonitis occurs in 1 in 3216(1) all general anaesthetics , has a mortality of 30 percent and accounts for up to 20 percent of all deaths attributable to anaesthesia(2). The obstetric population has a tenfold risk of failed intubation when compared with the general population. This translates to a frequency of 1 in 250 and a ...
ANSWER: First Stage of Labor: The whelping mother will then go through occasional minor contractions for several hours, before active labor with intense contractions take place. You will notice your dog panting rapidly, moving restlessly, whining and sleeping deeply during the first stage of labor.
Decided to start a new comment because that one was getting ridiculous long. Thought you might like to hear about a nice upright birth I attended an hour and a half ago. Second baby, spontaneous labor at 40 weeks 4 days, no augmentation, no IV, no AROM, just labor. Mama did a lot of laboring in bed because she was tired, but at the very end of labor, she got up. She had been grunting a bit with contractions, but not really pushing, and she thought she needed to pee. We went to the bathroom, but she wasnt able to get comfortable and wasnt able to go. She hopped up and down from the toilet several times, and then squatted on the floor holding on to the sink for a bit. Finally, she said forget it and we headed back into the labor room. At this point, she stopped at the end of the bed and squatted down on the floor holding on to the end of the bed. This felt good to her, so we spread some pads on the floor, and over the next few contractions she would go from kneeling to squatting, to kneeling ...

I REFER to Dont take away rights of employees (The Star, April 27). It is surprising that the writer, a former labour officer and presently a management consultant, feels that the proposals aim to cause inconvenience to employers and remove the rights of employees.. I do not see any basis for his statement. I also do not see any basis for his claim that former officers of the Human Resources Ministry (MOHR) have a better understanding of the labour law than the current serving officers.. His claim that the 2007 amendments were bulldozed through Parliament without proper discussion is a misstatement. All amendments to labour laws are discussed at the National Labour Advisory Council (NLAC) which consists of representatives from workers, the ministry and employer organisations.. Discussion does not mean agreement, because whatever that is agreeable to the employers will invariably be disagreed to by the workers and vice versa.. It is also not true that the 2007 amendments resulted in erosion of ...

Are you in labour? Have you been labouring under the wrong impression? We celebrated Labour Day in Canada and Labor Day in the United States on September 5th., the first Monday of September. This was a day to celebrate and honour working people. I appreciate the holiday but believe we should celebrate labour every day.. In Canada, as opposed to America, we spell labour with the u in it. It got me thinking about the u in labour. Are you in labour? Do you personally engage fully with your work or are you stuck in false labour with the contractions of cant and wont?. On one hand, labour is defined as the process of childbirth while it also means to work hard and make great effort. Can you work hard and make strong effort to give birth to your own health and wellbeing experienced through work, not something done after work or outside of work?. I think many of us have a false notion of loving our work. We think it is an effusive emotion and hold onto an unrealistic ideal. At times work is ...
For years I have seen womens membranes artificially ruptured. Most of the time, I suggest before labor that moms try to avoid it. Rupturing the membranes doesnt hurt, directly. But it does take away the cushion of water that usually helps make the birth more comfortable. The question is: why do care-providers suggest artificial rupture of membranes (AROM)?. Some care providers suggest that it will make the labor go faster. Studies show only a 30-60 minute decrease in labor length. Sometimes, when a labor medically needs to be managed (because the mother is ill or during an induction which could overwhelm the mothers resources if it goes too long) AROM is the next logical step to getting a mom into active labor. The idea is, if rupturing the membranes is the only intervention needed to put the mom into fully active labor, it isnt a big intervention. Keep in mind that once the membranes are ruptured, the clock is ticking on the birth. The longer the membranes are ruptured, the greater the ...
Researchers from the Universities of Birmingham and Leicester found that women were willing to let go their ideal of choice when unanticipated complications occurred. Published in the journal Health, the NIHR-funded study is based on interviews with 18 women. These women were all involved in a pilot study, led by Dr Sara Kenyon at the University of Birmingham, which compared different doses of a drug used when a womans contractions are not frequent and/or strong enough for labour to progress. When this kind of delay occurs, women may have greatly reduced choices about how the labour and birth will go. By examining womens experiences of their labours not progressing as they would have wished, the study was able to reveal what was important to women about retaining choice compared to other outcomes. It showed that a simplistic model of patient choice is not always applicable to the complex and uncertain reality of some healthcare situations: women may not always prioritise choice, and they may ...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this prospective study was to identify latent phase predictors of active labor duration. DESIGN: Prospective clinical study. SETTING: Two delivery units in Sweden. SAMPLE: Healthy nulliparous women with a normal pregnancy, spontaneous onset of active labor at term, and a cervical dilatation of 4 cm or more on admission to the delivery ward (n = 2,072). METHODS: The women were asked to answer questions concerning their food and fluid intake, amount of rest and sleep during the preceding 24 hours and to assess their labor pain, sense of security and expectations of the childbirth on a visual analog scale (VAS). Duration and intervals of contractions, cervical dilatation, and position of the fetal head were noted by the midwife. A multiple regression analysis was performed with active labor duration as the outcome variable. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Predictive factors of active labor duration. RESULTS: Normal food intake during the preceding 24 hours was associated with short labor

Background: This research studied the relationship between anti-peroxidase anti-body in euthyroid pregnant female and miscarriage, preterm labor and IUGR in Egyptian patients. Patients and Methods: This prospective study was carried on patients who attended to the Obstetrics and Gynecology department of Tanta University Hospital for routine antenatal care from January 2016 to November 2016. 80 women enrolled in the study and were divided into four groups, 20 cases for each group, a control group, recurrent unexplained abortion group, preterm labor group and IUGR group. A Thyroperoxidase (TPO) antibody was measured in all cases. Results & Discussion: The eighty patients were randomly enrolled into 4 groups, 20 patients in each group. Their age ranged from 20 to 35 years and BMI ranged from 18 to 35. The percentage of +ve TPO Ab of the control group was 5% and of the recurrent abortion group was 20% and of the preterm labor group was 15% and of the IUGR group it was 5%. (P value 0.026) indicating
The individual meaning of a pain experience is a dimension of pain that has not been greatly explored in the existing pain literature, and yet it is an implicitly accepted dimension. The placebo effect - a phenomenon that is routinely controlled for in much clinical research - is a striking example of how context can change a persons pain experience [32]. Moseley and Arntz [17] demonstrated experimentally that a change in the context of a noxious stimulus resulted in a change in the perceived intensity and unpleasantness of the subsequent pain experience. This correlates with the findings from the present study where the context of a womans labour experience reflects the perceived intensity and the qualitative characteristics of pain. Our previous work demonstrated that women describe their labour pain experience using either positive, negative or ambivalent terms [3] suggesting that not all labour pain feels the same. This relates to Lundgren & Dahlbergs [2] findings that labour pain can be ...
We determined the prevalence of obstructed labour in our sample to be 10.5%. Our findings showed that obstructed labour was associated with individual factors such as age, parity and socio-demographic factors such as occupation and place of residence and with particular health facility at which the woman gave birth. The association between low age, lower parity, district of residence and obstructed labour remained statistically significant even after multivariate regression analyses.. The proportion of women with obstructed labour who developed complications was 8 times that of those who did not have the condition. Thirteen women (1.2%) died from obstructed labour, compared to thirty eight (0.4%) in the non-obstructed labour group. We also found that adverse outcomes of obstructed labour, such as perinatal death, were associated with older age, high parity, occupation, district of residence and particular health facility. The association between old age, other districts and high risk of ...
The Mayo Clinic websites article Labor Induction, accessed August 31, 2010 points out reasons why an induction of labor is necessary. If a woman is past her due date, often an induction becomes an option. Inadequate amniotic fluid can also be a reason to induce labor, as well as a medical condition that is adversely affecting the mother and/or baby. Another scenario that can indicate induction is if a pregnant womans water has broken, but labor has not progressed from there, meaning contractions have not begun.. As with any medical procedure, the induction of labor carries certain risks, and should be carefully discussed with the doctor providing care. In the article Trends and Controversies in Labor Induction from MCN, The American Journal of Maternal/Child Nursing, Jan/Feb 2009 edition, Vol. 34, No. 1, pages 40 - 47, Carole Ann Moleti MS, MPH, CNM,.

AU - Nelson, Scott M.. AU - Myatt, Les. AU - Bennett, Philip R.. AU - Johnson, Mark R.. PY - 2012/1. Y1 - 2012/1. N2 - Both human preterm labor (PTL) and term labor are consistently associated with a chemokine-induced inflammatory infiltration of the myometrium. However, what regulates myometrial chemokine expression and whether the increase in expression precedes the onset of labor, and so may have a role in its causation, or occurs after, and is simply a consequence of labor, is uncertain. Therefore, we assessed 1) chemokine expression in nonlaboring and laboring myometrial samples obtained at and before term and 2) the factors that regulate myometrial chemokine expression. We found that term labor was characterized by an increase in CXCL8 and CCL2 in both upper and lower segments, whereas PTL ...

Purpose: Synthetic oxytocin for labor augmentation during birth has been linked to negative neurodevelopment effects in children. We examined whether maternal labor augmentation was associated with lower cognitive ability in young adulthoods. Patients and methods: We identified 330,107 individuals (96.6% were men), with noninduced labor and with a cognitive ability test score, the Børge Priens Prøve (BPP) score, from draft board examinations in 1995-2015 (mean age, 18.8 years). Information on maternal labor augmentation was ascertained from the Danish Medical Birth Register, and we calculated mean differences in the BPP score according to maternal labor augmentation. We repeated our analyses in a sub-sample of siblings to control for unmeasured familial confounding. Results: Maternal labor augmentation was not associated with any noticeable decline in cognitive ability. However, the difference in the mean BPP score for exposure to maternal labor augmentation varied according to maternal ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper describes how the composition of the labor force changes with economic development. It considers recent trends in womens labor force participation and the type of jobs held in various sectors as national per capita income increases. The paper notes that women are more likely to work in the family or informal labor market if the labor costs to firms exceed the opportunity costs of female labor to family enterprises. Firms are at a relative disadvantage compared with families in the employment of less experienced and less skilled labor, presumably because their labor costs are affected by such regulations as minimum wage, social insurance premiums and limits on firing. In Asia and Africa, an increase in the proportion of employment in firms within the major sectors accounts for most of the rapid growth in womens overall share of wage employment. In Latin America, however, growth in the proportion of firm employment has been slower than elsewhere, and the

Bonded labour is widespread in Pakistan. This paper is an attempt to illustrate the nature of bonded labour in the agricultural sector and the brick kiln industry in the country. Despite the introduction of Bonded Labour System (Abolition) Act 1992, bonded labour thrives because of the power and influence of big landlords in rural and factory owners in urban localities. It is argued that without effective land reforms or land distribution bonded labour cannot be eliminated. In additional to land reforms, effective governance based on strong democratic culture free of the influence of big landowners is essential to address the issue of bonded labour in Pakistan.

I already said, that Prof. Shaikh is not a neo-Ricardian nor a post-Keynesian. He prefers to call himself a classical economist, he wants to rescue the important insights of that tradition. I can write a few things here. I do not argue, that Marx believed that the value of inputs is equivalent to the value of outputs, or that he believed the labour on the input side is identical with the labour on the output side. I regard such identities as econometric constructs or accounting constructs, based on aggregated expenditures, revenues and a system of transactors, which may be useful for certain analytical purposes. Surplus-value is not an input. The value of living labour on the output side, cannot be equated with the value of labour power on the input side. The concept of value transfer is not well-understood, it needs to be worked on more (just like the theory of depreciation).. I do not really agree with your assessment of Sraffas theory. I do not have the time right now, for an in-depth ...
ok so in these verses God is actually pointing out how the nation of Israel was birthed, and how God did it miraculously. But what spoke to me today about these verses is the OTHER thing that God is pointing out in the background: normally in life, things dont just happen with no labor or effort. Sometimes we expect results without putting forth any prayer or effort or labor into the process. Sometimes we expect answers or results immediately, right when we want them. But God is pointing out that this isnt how things happen! (unless of course He miraculously makes it happen) Hes pointing out that usually there is a painful time of labor before delivery happens! But then He points out that we dont have to be discouraged, because even though there may be a painful time of labor, He is faithful!!! Delivery happens!!! Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery? When its time for the baby to come out and your joy to overflow, does He all of a sudden shut the womb and make the baby ...

Tracy McPhillips PCD(DONA), LCCE: The instructor is key to helping parents understand what its like to progress from early labor into active and when its time to leave for the birth place or call the midwives to come. Ideally, class members develop patience for how labor unfolds and appreciate the need to learn and use skills to cope with a longer early phase of labor.. Focus on teaching coping skills and comfort techniques to increase parents ability to confidently cope with labor pain intensity, regardless of the phase of labor.. Instead of creating false expectations that the latent phase of labor will be the easiest phase of labor and last until 6 cm, childbirth educators must prepare parents to confidently cope with whatever intensity they feel whenever they feel it. Says Penny Simkin (PT), If we dont prepare people to cope with early-to-active labor, we are not doing our job..

A Saatchi & Saatchi ad featuring a pregnant man is such an enduring cultural icon that the U.K.s Conservative Party borrowed it to slam Prime Minister Tony Blair and his Labour Party in the run-up to U.K. elections June 7. In the 1971 ad for the Health Education Council, a glum pregnant man is pictured above the caption, Would you be more careful if it was you that got pregnant? In the new version, aimed at broken Labour promises, Tony Blair holds the same pose, next to the headline Four years of labour and he still hasnt delivered. The Conservatives agency is little-known local shop Yellow M, based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne ...
If this uterine activity persists while you are resting, then you may be in preterm labor and you should contact your provider. Remember, it is often not possible to determine true labor from false labor over the phone, so you may be asked to come into the clinic or hospital for observation and/or to have your cervix checked. Adapted from: Preventing Preterm Birth: A Parents Guide, Editors: Michael Katz, Pamela Gill, Judith Turiel (Pages 28 - 32) ...

During active labor, your contractions will be stronger and more rhythmic than with early labor. They peak and subside like waves. They may happen 3 to 5 minutes apart and last about 45 to 60 seconds. This part of labor can be hard work. But it is often shorter than early labor. When you reach active labor, exams and tests will be done to see how you and your baby are doing ...
Labor and delivery nurses have the same general skill set as all registered nurses, but also need some additional specific skills for the obstetric specialty.. Medical Skills and Knowledge: Nurses need to have detailed medical knowledge from an accredited educational program. Labor and delivery nurses also need to have additional knowledge of obstetrics, gynecology, and childbirth in general.. Bedside Manner: Labor and delivery nurses work with patients in very vulnerable and high-stress situations, so a good bedside manner (including empathy and patience) is essential.. Problem Solving Skills: Because of the high stakes of working with laboring and delivering patients, these nurses need to be prepared for everything that can possibly go wrong-and be able to troubleshoot or have a plan in place for things that cant be anticipated. Labor and delivery nurses are responsible for monitoring patients through every stage of childbirth, helping to ensure safety at every stage.. Communication Skills: ...
If you have an epidural, it is important that you keep your body moving as much as possible during labor. Staying mobile during your labor encourages your body and baby to work with gravity and movement, helping your baby to descend and progressing your labor. Usually, your nurse will be in charge of helping you rotate/flip every 30 minutes to an hour. It may help to set your own timer to ensure that you keep moving regularly. You can enlist help from your nurse, your partner, and your doula to move. But how do you move with an epidural? Renowned author, doula, childbirth educator, and birth counselor Penny Simkin, PT, created what she calls the Rollover technique (shown in the image below and explained in detail here at Spinning Babies) to help women stay as mobile as possible during labor with an epidural. The positions used in this technique make use of an adjustable hospital bed and props like pillows and a yoga ball to move your body and open your pelvis, both of which help progression of ...

Induction of labour has an impact on a womans labour and birth experience. It should be employed only as a medical necessity. Induced labour may be more painful than spontaneous labour, and epidural analgesia and assisted delivery are more likely to be required.
by David Talbot. The NHS is on the ballot paper in May declared the Labour leader at Prime Ministers Questions as he sought to solidify his partys clear advantage on this most important, and emotive, of issues. That the NHS is set to be centre stage at the forthcoming general election is partly due to naked politicking, and partly due to the dire forecasts for our health service. Both main combatants are well aware of the financial and demographic peril the NHS is in, but both continue to besmirch the debate with clichéd attacks on how the Tories cant be trusted on the NHS or, a new variant of the same line, Labour are ruining the NHS in Wales.. It is essential that politicians are honest with the public about the scale of the challenges facing the NHS. This is particularly true of the Labour party who are prone to nostalgia and playing on sentiment, invoking the spirit of Nye Bevan and having a nonagenarian address party conference, for instance, but specifically because the party is ...
The NLRA was enacted by Congress in 1935. It was hailed at the time and for many years after as the Magna Carta of America labor. Previously, employers had been free to spy on, interrogate, discipline, discharge, and blacklist union members. But in the 1930s workers began to organize militantly. A great strike wave in 1933 and 1934 included citywide general strikes and factory takeovers. Violent confrontations occurred between workers trying to form unions and the police and private security forces defending the interests of anti-union employers. Some historians believe that Congress adopted the NLRA primarily in the hopes of averting greater, possible revolutionary, labor unrest.. The NLRA guaranteed workers the right to join unions without fear of management reprisal. It created the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to enforce this right and prohibited employers from committing unfair labor practices that might discourage organizing or prevent workers from negotiating a union ...
In 1999, the official estimate of the total economically active population was 1.7 million. In that year, the labor force was distributed as follows: services, 43%; agriculture, 42%; and industry, 15%. However, according to some estimates, more than 50% of the workforce remains unemployed or underemployed. Officially, unemployment was at 23% in 2001. Nicaragua became a member of the ILO in 1919, withdrew in 1938, and rejoined in 1957. The former labor code, effective January 1945, was patterned on Mexican labor legislation. In establishing and protecting the rights of workers, emphasis was placed on law rather than collective bargaining. A new code, effective as of 1996, allows all public and private sector employees to form and join unions and legally recognizes cooperatives, as well as the right to strike. However, administrative requirements make it difficult for a union to engage in a legal strike. As of 2001, approximately 15% of the labor force was organized. Children may not work until ...
In those first 2 incredibly stressful weeks, we ended up back at labor and delivery 3 times. The first time, Laurie woke up at 3 AM about 5 days after the surgery, shaking uncontrollably and hyperventilating. Our doctors were concerned it could have been signs of an infection, but it turned out to just be a completely understandable panic attack as the emotions and stress of the week came crashing down on Laurie. One of the nurses at labor and delivery told Laurie she needed to just get over it during that visit. A few days later, our OB was concerned that the antibiotic regimen used after the cerclage was placed had given Laurie C Difficile, but once again it was a false alarm as the tests were negative (though we also were given incorrect instructions on how to collect the stool sample for testing, and Laurie ended up having to do that multiple times). Finally, exactly 2 weeks after the cerclage was placed, Laurie had a suture come out in the toilet when she went to the bathroom. We went ...
