The nursing of an infant at the breast.
Excess blood loss from uterine bleeding associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR or CHILDBIRTH. It is defined as blood loss greater than 500 ml or of the amount that adversely affects the maternal physiology, such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEMATOCRIT. Postpartum hemorrhage is divided into two categories, immediate (within first 24 hours after birth) or delayed (after 24 hours postpartum).
The behavior patterns associated with or characteristic of a mother.
The three approximately equal periods of a normal human PREGNANCY. Each trimester is about three months or 13 to 14 weeks in duration depending on the designation of the first day of gestation.

Elements of limited time intervals, contributing to particular results or situations.
A major gonadotropin secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Luteinizing hormone regulates steroid production by the interstitial cells of the TESTIS and the OVARY. The preovulatory LUTEINIZING HORMONE surge in females induces OVULATION, and subsequent LUTEINIZATION of the follicle. LUTEINIZING HORMONE consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is common in the three pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH, LH and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity.
The hollow thick-walled muscular organ in the female PELVIS. It consists of the fundus (the body) which is the site of EMBRYO IMPLANTATION and FETAL DEVELOPMENT. Beyond the isthmus at the perineal end of fundus, is CERVIX UTERI (the neck) opening into VAGINA. Beyond the isthmi at the upper abdominal end of fundus, are the FALLOPIAN TUBES.
An aspect of personal behavior or lifestyle, environmental exposure, or inborn or inherited characteristic, which, on the basis of epidemiologic evidence, is known to be associated with a health-related condition considered important to prevent.
Diseases of domestic cattle of the genus Bos. It includes diseases of cows, yaks, and zebus.
The 17-beta-isomer of estradiol, an aromatized C18 steroid with hydroxyl group at 3-beta- and 17-beta-position. Estradiol-17-beta is the most potent form of mammalian estrogenic steroids.
The transmission of infectious disease or pathogens from one generation to another. It includes transmission in utero or intrapartum by exposure to blood and secretions, and postpartum exposure via breastfeeding.
Social and economic factors that characterize the individual or group within the social structure.
Retinol and derivatives of retinol that play an essential role in metabolic functioning of the retina, the growth of and differentiation of epithelial tissue, the growth of bone, reproduction, and the immune response. Dietary vitamin A is derived from a variety of CAROTENOIDS found in plants. It is enriched in the liver, egg yolks, and the fat component of dairy products.
Studies in which variables relating to an individual or group of individuals are assessed over a period of time.
Observation of a population for a sufficient number of persons over a sufficient number of years to generate incidence or mortality rates subsequent to the selection of the study group.
A major gonadotropin secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Follicle-stimulating hormone stimulates GAMETOGENESIS and the supporting cells such as the ovarian GRANULOSA CELLS, the testicular SERTOLI CELLS, and LEYDIG CELLS. FSH consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is common in the three pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH, LH, and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity.
Stress wherein emotional factors predominate.
Public attitudes toward health, disease, and the medical care system.
Predetermined sets of questions used to collect data - clinical data, social status, occupational group, etc. The term is often applied to a self-completed survey instrument.
Products in capsule, tablet or liquid form that provide dietary ingredients, and that are intended to be taken by mouth to increase the intake of nutrients. Dietary supplements can include macronutrients, such as proteins, carbohydrates, and fats; and/or MICRONUTRIENTS, such as VITAMINS; MINERALS; and PHYTOCHEMICALS.

Maternal vitamin A or beta-carotene supplementation in lactating bangladeshi women benefits mothers and infants but does not prevent subclinical deficiency. (1/2013)

The effects of maternal postpartum vitamin A or beta-carotene supplementation on maternal and infant serum retinol concentrations, modified relative dose-response (MRDR) ratios and breast milk vitamin A concentrations were assessed during a community-based trial in Matlab, Bangladesh. At 1-3 wk postpartum, women were randomly assigned to receive either (1) a single dose of 200,000 international units [60,000 retinol equivalents (RE)] vitamin A followed by daily placebos (n = 74), (2) daily doses of beta-carotene [7.8 mg (1300 RE)] (n = 73) or (3) daily placebos (n = 73) until 9 mo postpartum. Compared to placebos, vitamin A supplementation resulted in lower maternal MRDR ratios (i.e., increased liver stores) and higher milk vitamin A concentrations at 3 mo, but these improvements were not sustained. The beta-carotene supplementation acted more slowly, resulting in milk vitamin A concentrations higher than the placebo group only at 9 mo. Irrespective of treatment group, over 50% of women produced milk with low vitamin A concentrations (/=0. 06. We conclude that while both interventions were beneficial, neither was sufficient to correct the underlying subclinical vitamin A deficiency in these women nor to bring their infants into adequate vitamin A status.  (+info)

In oculo transplants of myometrium from postpartum guinea pigs fail to support sympathetic reinnervation. (2/2013)

Sympathetic nerves to the enlarged fetus-containing region of the uterus undergo degenerative changes during late pregnancy and show slow regrowth after parturition. It is not known whether this unusual response of sympathetic nerves to smooth muscle hypertrophy is due to the sensitivity of short adrenergic neurons to hormonal changes, or whether the nerves respond to changes in the neurotrophic capacity of the target. We have investigated this question using in oculo transplantation. Small pieces of myometrium from the uterine horn of virgin guinea pigs, or from the region previously occupied by the placenta and fetus in postpartum guinea pigs, were transplanted into the anterior eye chamber. After 3 wk in oculo, the pattern of reinnervation of the transplants was assessed on whole mount stretch preparations stained for tyrosine hydroxylase. The histology of the transplants was examined in toluidine blue-stained semithin sections. Myometrial transplants from virgin donors and uterine artery transplants from both virgin and postpartum donors became organotypically reinnervated by sympathetic fibres from the host iris. In contrast, sympathetic nerves did not reinnervate myometrial transplants from postpartum donors, although they approached the transplants and became distributed in the surrounding connective tissue. All transplanted tissues showed a normal histological appearance. Both the myometrium and uterine artery from postpartum donors retained a hypertrophic appearance after 3 wk in oculo. We interpret these results to indicate that the degeneration of sympathetic nerves in late pregnancy, as well as their slow regrowth to the uterus after delivery, may be due to changes in uterine smooth muscle rather than a particular sensitivity of short adrenergic neurons to hormonal changes.  (+info)

Effects of twinning on postpartum reproductive performance in cattle selected for twin births. (3/2013)

The effects of twinning, dystocia, retained placenta, and body weight on postpartum reproduction were evaluated for 3,370 single and 1,014 twin births. Females were bred by AI for 40 d followed by 20 or 30 d of natural service with equal numbers bred and calved in spring and fall. Percentage of dams cyclic by the end of the AI period was lower (P<.05) for dams birthing and nursing a single calf (92.4%) than for dams birthing twins and nursing zero (98.7%) or two (94.7%) calves. Whereas the interval from parturition to first estrus was shorter (P<.01) for dams birthing and nursing a single (56.9 d) than for dams birthing twins and nursing one (68.5 d) or two (69.6 d) calves, length of the interval was further reduced by dystocia in nonlactating dams of either twins or singles (type of birth x dystocia, P<.05). Ensuing pregnancy rates were also affected by type of birth and dystocia. Without dystocia, dams birthing and nursing a single calf had a higher pregnancy rate (79.2%) than dams birthing twins and nursing one (61.7%) or two (66.3%) calves, whereas the lower ensuing pregnancy rates associated with dystocia in dams of singles (71.9%) resulted in similar rates among dams of singles and twins with dystocia (type of birth x dystocia; P<.01). Having a retained placenta resulted in a lower incidence of (93.5 vs. 96.4%, with vs. without; P<.05) and a longer interval to (64.7 vs. 59.2 d; P<.01) estrus while reducing subsequent pregnancy rates (X = 9.6%) in 3 of the 7 yr evaluated (retained placenta x year, P<.01). Because all parous females were bred during the same calendrical period, the shorter gestation length for twin calves (275.6 vs. 281.3 d) resulted in a longer interval from parturition to conception for twin births, whereas means for conception date differed by only 2 d between dams of twins and singles. Furthermore, a reduction (P<.01) in the interval to conception occurred with dystocia in dams of singles (89.3 vs. 85.0 d, without vs. with dystocia) and of twins nursed by zero (116.9 vs. 83.5 d), one (100.2 vs. 92.8 d), or two (96.1 vs. 97.2 d) calves. Another detriment to fertility was the higher incidence of fetal mortality or abortions associated with twin vs. single pregnancies (12.4 vs. 3.5%; P<.01). However, despite the lower conception rates for dams of twins, the increased prolificacy provides an opportunity to increase total beef production with a twinning technology.  (+info)

Effects of pre- or postpartum selenium supplementation on selenium status in beef cows and their calves. (4/2013)

The effect of Se supplementation before or after calving on Se status in deficient cows and their calves was studied using 72 beef cows in two experiments. In Exp. 1, cows calving in February or March 1997 were supplemented orally for 15 d in late pregnancy with 13.0, 32.5, or 45.5 mg of Se/d as sodium selenite. Glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) activities were measured in red blood cells (RBC) or plasma of cows and calves at d 15 and between d 17 and 88 after calving. In Exp. 2, cows calving in January 1997 were supplemented orally with .0, 13.0, or 32.5 mg of Se/d for 15 d postpartum, and calves were injected with 1.38 mg of Se when 2 d old and at an average age of 49 d. The GSH-Px activities were measured in 30-d-old calves and in cows and calves between d 77 and 115 after calving. In both experiments, Se supplementation resulted in adequate Se status for the dams. The increase in RBC GSH-Px activity was faster with 45.5 mg of Se/d, and GSH-Px activities remained high for up to 98 d after the end of supplementation. The improvement in Se status in calves as a result of maternal supplementation was greater in Exp. 1 than in Exp. 2, suggesting that the placental transfer of Se is more efficient than milk transfer. Prepartum oral Se supplementation of deficient beef cows with 13.0 mg of Se/d for 15 d allowed adequate Se status of dams and calves, and 45.5 mg of Se/d resulted in a faster improvement of Se status. Parenteral administration of 1.38 mg of Se to newborn calves did not sustain normal Se status in calves issued from deficient cows.  (+info)

Apoptosis in nontumorous and neoplastic human pituitaries: expression of the Bcl-2 family of proteins. (5/2013)

Analyses of apoptosis and of the apoptosis regulatory proteins Bcl-2, Bax, Bcl-X, and Bad were done in 95 nontumorous and neoplastic pituitary tissues by terminal deoxynucleotide transferase-mediated dUTP nick-end labeling (TUNEL), immunohistochemistry, and Western blotting. The apoptotic index was relatively low in all groups but was at least fourfold higher in pituitary carcinomas compared with any other groups. Pituitaries from pregnant and postpartum women had a fivefold higher apoptotic index compared with matched controls from nonpregnant females. Preoperative treatment of adenomas with octreotide or dopamine agonists did not change the apoptotic index significantly. The lowest levels of Bcl-2, Bax, and Bcl-X expression were in pituitary carcinomas as detected by immunostaining. An immortalized human pituitary adenoma cell line, HP75, developed in our laboratory using a replication-defective recombinant human adenovirus with an early large T-antigen, had a much higher level of apoptosis than nontumorous and neoplastic pituitaries. Treatment with transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta1 and protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitors increased apoptosis in this cell line. Analysis of the Bcl-2 family of proteins after treatment with TGF-beta1 and PKC inhibitors showed a 20% to 30% decrease in Bcl-X in the treated groups compared with controls. These results, which represent the first study of apoptosis in pituitaries from pregnant and postpartum cases and in pituitary carcinomas, indicate that 1) the apoptotic rate is low in nontumorous and neoplastic pituitary tissues but is relatively higher in pituitary carcinomas, 2) there are alterations in the expression of the Bcl-2 family of proteins in pituitary neoplasms with a decrease in Bcl-2 expression in pituitary carcinomas that may contribute to pituitary tumor pathogenesis and/or proliferation, and 3) cultured pituitary tumor cells respond to TGF-beta1 and PKC inhibitors by undergoing apoptotic cell death.  (+info)

Impact of diet on lead in blood and urine in female adults and relevance to mobilization of lead from bone stores. (6/2013)

We measured high precision lead isotope ratios and lead concentrations in blood, urine, and environmental samples to assess the significance of diet as a contributing factor to blood and urine lead levels in a cohort of 23 migrant women and 5 Australian-born women. We evaluated possible correlations between levels of dietary lead intake and changes observed in blood and urine lead levels and isotopic composition during pregnancy and postpartum. Mean blood lead concentrations for both groups were approximately 3 microg/dl. The concentration of lead in the diet was 5.8 +/- 3 microg Pb/kg [geometric mean (GM) 5.2] and mean daily dietary intake was 8.5 microg/kg/day (GM 7.4), with a range of 2-39 microg/kg/day. Analysis of 6-day duplicate dietary samples for individual subjects commonly showed major spikes in lead concentration and isotopic composition that were not reflected by associated changes in either blood lead concentration or isotopic composition. Changes in blood lead levels and isotopic composition observed during and after pregnancy could not be solely explained by dietary lead. These data are consistent with earlier conclusions that, in cases where levels of environmental lead exposure and dietary lead intake are low, skeletal contribution is the dominant contributor to blood lead, especially during pregnancy and postpartum.  (+info)

Effect of insulin on fat metabolism during and after normal pregnancy. (7/2013)

Whereas development of resistance to the action of insulin on glucose metabolism during gestation has been recognized, it is presently not known whether there is also resistance to the action of insulin on lipid metabolism. We have, therefore, examined the effect of physiological hyperinsulinemia (during euglycemic-hyperinsulinemic clamping) on free fatty acid (FFA) turnover in seven nondiabetic overweight or obese women during and after pregnancy. Basal rates of FFA release, oxidation, and reesterification and basal plasma FFA concentrations were not significantly different from each other during the 2nd and 3rd trimester of pregnancy and postpartum. During euglycemic-hyperinsulinemic (approximately 500 pmol/l) clamping, however, lipolysis was significantly less inhibited during the 3rd trimester (from 7.0 +/- 0.9 to 4.9 +/- 0.9 micromol x kg(-1) x min(-1), -30%) than during the 2nd trimester (from 8.4 +/- 0.6 to 4.1 +/- 0.9 micromol x kg(-1) x min(-1), -51%) and postpartum (from 8.5 +/- 1.1 to 4.2 +/- 0.6 micromol x kg(-1) x min(-1), -51%). Similarly, fat oxidation was not inhibited at all (from 3.5 +/- 0.3 to 3.8 +/- 0.5 micromol x kg(-1) x min(-1)) during the 3rd trimester but was suppressed by 51% (from 3.9 +/- 0.2 to 1.9 +/- 0.3 micromol x kg(-1) x min(-1)) during the 2nd trimester and by 38% (from 2.6 +/- 0.7 to 1.6 +/- 0.5 micromol x kg(-1) x min(-1) postpartum. These data demonstrated that resistance to the action of insulin on lipolysis and on fat oxidation developed during late gestation and disappeared postpartum.  (+info)

The presentation and management of post-partum choriocarcinoma. (8/2013)

Post-partum choriocarcinoma is a rare complication of pregnancy. We have analysed a series of nine consecutive patients presenting with choriocarcinoma after a full-term non-molar pregnancy. All patients were managed at the Supraregional Trophoblastic Disease Screening and Treatment Centre at Weston Park Hospital, Sheffield between 1987 and 1996. All presented with persistent primary or secondary post-partum haemorrhage. Treatment with multiagent chemotherapy (initially methotrexate, dactinomycin and etoposide) was successful in all cases. Early diagnosis is important because this rare condition is potentially curable with appropriate chemotherapy.  (+info)

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is a mental disorder of which the main feature is persistent and impairing worry. GAD symptoms are common for women during the postpartum period and GAD prevalence rates have been reported as higher in postpartum mothers than in the general population. Currently, little psychometric evidence exists for a screening measure to detect the possible presence of diagnosable GAD for postpartum women. The purpose of this investigation was to gather psychometric information for the Generalized Anxiety Disorder Questionnaire-IV (GAD-Q-IV; Newman et al., 2002) with a sample of postpartum mothers. Factor analyses were conducted to determine the factor structure of the GAD-Q-IV in postpartum women. Receiver-operating characteristic (ROC) analysis was used to determine a range of potential GAD-Q-IV cut-off scores for detecting the likely presence of GAD in postpartum women. Results from this study provided evidence to justify a 1-factor structure for the GAD-Q-IV responses from
Lambert L, et al. Perceived benefits and barriers related to postpartum weight loss of overweight/obese postpartum WIC participants. Top Clin Nutr. Jan/Mar 2005;20(1):16-27.. The purposes of this study were (1) to understand perceived benefits and barriers related to weight loss in a group of overweight/obese postpartum WIC moms and (2) to identify intervention measures that the WIC Program could implement. Researchers identified lack of support and finances, as well as low self-esteem, as barriers to weight loss. They concluded that a support group approach within a weight loss program would be beneficial.. ...

Materials: We performed a retrospective case-control series of pregnant/postpartum women and control women who underwent CTPA from 2008 to 2011. Results: The study included 34 pregnant women, 16 postpartum women, and 50 controls. CTPAs were positive in 2% of pregnant/postpartum women and 16% of controls (P= .003). The main pulmonary artery mean opacification was 271 Hounsfield units (HU) for pregnant/postpartum women vs. 303 HU (P= 12). Radiation exposure was high in both groups but lower in pregnant/postpartum women, 10 vs. 14. mSv (P= 003). Conclusion: CTPA in pregnant and postpartum women had low ...
Maternal mortality and morbidity in the United States are as high as they have ever been. More people are dying from complications of pregnancy or childbirth than ever before. 61 percent of deaths related to childbirth occur in the postpartum period and most of those occur in the first 42 days after birth. The current estimated maternal mortality rate in the U.S. is 23.7/100,000 live births (MacDorman, Declercq, Cabral, & Morton, 2016). There is agreement that we must improve the way we care for people in the postpartum period if we want to be able to reduce the complications and deaths that occur after giving birth. Part of this improvement lies in how warning signs information is provided to families after birth. As it is not possible to identify who will have a postbirth complication, it is imperative that everyone receive information about concerns in the postpartum period that will need to be evaluated by a health care provider. The postpartum nurse or mother-baby nurse is in a unique ...
Summary. Thirty primiparous suckling beef cows were slaughtered on Day 7, 14, 28,42 or 56 after parturition. Some had resumed oestrous cyclicity by the time they were slaughtered on Days 42 and 56. Amongst acyclic cows between Days 7 and 42, pituitary LH concentrations and basal and GnRH-induced release of LH from pituitary explants doubled. Pituitary FSH concentration and basal release in FSH increased only by 15-20%, while GnRH-induced release of FSH in vitro was unchanged. During post-partum anoestrus, overall mean concentrations of serum FSH did not change, whereas overall mean concentrations and pulse amplitudes of serum LH increased. Numbers and affinity constants of GnRH-binding sites in pituitary glands remained constant during the post-partum period studied. We conclude that, under these experimental conditions, numbers and affinity constants of GnRH-binding sites in the pituitary gland of post-partum beef cows do not limit the ability of the anterior pituitary gland to release ...
A postpartum (or postnatal) period begins immediately after the birth of a child as the mothers body, including hormone levels and uterus size, returns to a non-pregnant state.[1] The terms puerperium or puerperal period, or immediate postpartum period are commonly used to refer to the first six weeks following childbirth.[2] The World Health Organization (WHO) describes the postnatal period as the most critical and yet the most neglected phase in the lives of mothers and babies; most maternal and newborn deaths occur during the postnatal period.[3] In scientific literature, the term is commonly abbreviated to Px, where x is a number; for example, day P5 should be read as the fifth day after birth. This is not to be confused with the medical nomenclature that uses G P to stand for number and outcomes of pregnancy (gravidity and parity). A woman giving birth in a hospital may leave as soon as she is medically stable, which can be as early as a few hours postpartum, though the average for a ...
Retention of weight gained in pregnancy contributes to the development of overweight and obesity in middle age, now at epidemic proportions in America. While interventions to reduce weight retention specifically targeting the postpartum period have been few, interventions that promote modest weight loss starting in early postpartum are safe and could be efficacious, particularly for women who were overweight prior to pregnancy. Moreover, postpartum-related changes in cognitive factors (risk perceptions), behavioral factors (physical activity, diet), self concept (self-esteem) and social role (work, food preparation, child care) may make this time a teachable moment that could be capitalized upon by formal interventions. Interventions could leverage natural weight changes to encourage adoption of a healthy diet and increase physical activity, which together could accelerate and/or increase natural weight loss in postpartum. Whether the postpartum period is a teachable moment for weight loss ...

The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) demonstrated that an intensive lifestyle intervention reduced the risk of developing diabetes by approximately 53% in parous women with a history of GDM, whose pregnancies were on average approximately 12 years before enrollment in the trial (37). The DPP lifestyle curriculum was very intensive and required several in-person group sessions, thereby posing challenges for implementation. We adapted the DPP curriculum to be delivered by telephone to meet the needs of pregnant and postpartum women with GDM who may benefit more from early prevention, given their exceptionally high risk of type 2 diabetes, and who juggle the competing demands of having young families. A telephonic intervention also has the potential to be more feasible for implementation in health care delivery settings. Based on evidence showing that excess gestational weight gain is a strong predictor of postpartum weight retention (38) and that postpartum weight retention is linked to type 2 ...

CONCLUSION: The results reveal the potential for plasticity in the adult female brain following pregnancy. They support the assumption that the volume reductions during pregnancy renormalize at least partly in the early postpartal phase. The course of renormalization seems to differ between participants of different ages. Future studies are needed to further investigate inter-individual variabilit...
OBJECTIVE: The goal of this study was to examine the associations of maternal weight status before, during, and after pregnancy with breast milk C-reactive protein (CRP) and interleukin 6 (IL-6), two bioactive markers of inflammation, measured at 1 and 3 months post partum. METHODS: Participants were 134 exclusively breastfeeding mother-infant dyads taking part in the Mothers and Infants Linked for Health (MILK) study, who provided breast milk samples. Pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI) and gestational weight gain (GWG) were assessed by chart abstraction; postpartum weight loss was measured at the 1- and 3-month study visits ...

All women with pregnancy-related cardiovascular risk indicators: In addition to the routine 6-week postpartum visit, we recommend additional postpartum followup visits with a focus on identifying and reducing future CVD risk.29 At 6 months postpartum, we suggest measuring BP, measuring BMI, obtaining a lipid profile, and testing urine to determine the albumin-to-creatinine ratio. It is also important to counsel women on their increased CVD risk, discuss how to optimize their health during future pregnancies, and recommend lifestyle and pharmacologic interventions where appropriate. At 12 months postpartum, we suggest repeating measurements of BP, BMI, and lipid levels (if abnormal at 6 months), reinforcing appropriate lifestyle modifications (increasing physical activity, eating a healthy diet, etc), and considering referral (eg, to a cardiologist, a registered dietitian, or a maternal-fetal medicine specialist) for further assessment or intervention if necessary.. Data suggest that general ...
Background: The occurrence of any leukemia during pregnancy is rare, with an estimated incidence of 1:100,000 pregnancies annually. Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) covers less than 10% of leukemias during pregnancy. The median onset age of CML is in the sixth decade, however about 10-15% of cases occur in women in childbearing age. Possibility of pregnancy is therefore a current topic. The CML...

Even women with AS who remain asymptomatic during pregnancy are subject to additional hemodynamic stress at the time of delivery and the immediate postpartum period. These women may therefore become symptomatic at the time of delivery and should be managed in a team approach, including experienced cardiologists, obstetricians, and anesthesiologists. In asymptomatic patients in good clinical condition with normal cardiac function, spontaneous labor is generally preferred to induced labor (1). By contrast, there is less consensus on the recommended mode of delivery in symptomatic patients. Generally, vaginal delivery carries a lower risk of complications for mother and fetus. Compared with Cesarean section, it normally causes smaller shifts in blood volume, less hemorrhage, the absence of abdominal surgery, decreased thrombogenic risk, and fewer infections. Furthermore, the hypertrophied left ventricle in AS may be sensitive to abrupt changes in pre-load (e.g., from anesthetic agents or ...
The first time I witnessed my child being inflicted with something that was uncomfortable (yes, even painful), was when my first baby was being treated for a septic infection following his birth (probably due to his hospital birth, as I was not GBS+ and germs do tend to hover in hospitals). I was discharged on day 2, and he had to stay another 9 days without my full-time care. I came every three hours to feed him. One time as I was walking into the NICU, I heard Jacob crying. I saw the nurses were trying to hold him down so they could place an IV into his head. A nurse looked at me and said, Mom, you can stay and help hold him, or you can leave until we are done. I jumped right in and helped hold my baby while a bit of his hair was shaved and the procedure was finished; it did help to hear his crying was the same when they were shaving his head as they were when the needle went in :::shudder:::. Still not a pleasant experience for a newly postpartum mother and her first baby. I just felt, ...

The caregiver should be prepared to support the woman in the initiation and practice of breastfeeding (sections 6.3, 6.4), but also in many other problems that arise in the first week after birth, especially if the mother is primipara. The special problems of HIV positive women are discussed in section 8; they include the decisions on HIV testing and on infant feeding. Counselling on contraception should be offered in combination with the advice on breastfeeding (sections 7.2, 7.3, 7.5). Too often these two issues are dealt with separately by different persons, who dont know about the others advice. In case of anaemia, an iron preparation is prescribed to the mother. Rhesus negative women with a Rh positive infant should receive anti Rh-D (section 9.4). If the mother is known to be non-immune to rubella, immunization may be offered (section 9.5).. Nutritional advice and supplementation of pregnant and lactating women is a subject of special importance for those countries and regions with a ...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of dietary patterns (DP) with maternal adiposity indicators, leptin, adiponectin and insulin concentrations during pregnancy. A prospective cohort of pregnant women followed up at the 5th-13th, 20th -26th and 30th-36th gestational weeks and 30-40 d postpartum was conducted in Rio de Janeiro. A FFQ was administered in the third trimester (30th-36th gestational weeks). The reduced rank regression procedure was used to identify DP that explain response variables (dietary fibre and total fat) related to indicators of maternal adiposity (postpartum weight retention and gestational weight gain (GWG) adequacy), and plasma leptin, adiponectin and insulin concentrations ...

:confused: Some background: I am EBF my 3.5 month old baby, I have never supplemented with formula, she will occasionally (couple times a week) take a bottle from my fiance, and I am on Micronor (the mini-pill). Sorry if this is TMI, but need some answers! About 3 weeks ago I had some dark brown discharge that turned slightly reddish but never soaked up even a pantiliner. It lasted for 3 days and I worried that I had already gotten my period back. I also wondered if it was some
Background: Online recruitment is feasible, low-cost, and can provide high-quality epidemiological data. However, little is known about the feasibility of recruiting postpartum women online, or sample representativeness. Objective: The current study investigates the feasibility of recruiting a population of postpartum women online for health research and examines sample representativeness. Methods: Two samples of postpartum women were compared: those recruited online as participants in a brief survey of new mothers (n=1083) and those recruited face-to-face as part of a nationally representative study (n=579). Sociodemographic, general health, and mental health characteristics were compared between the two samples. Results: Obtaining a sample of postpartum women online for health research was highly efficient and low-cost. The online sample over-represented those who were younger (aged 25-29 years), were in a de facto relationship, had higher levels of education, spoke only English at home, and were

Negative energy balance (NEB) is an altered metabolic state in high yielding cows that occurs during the first few weeks postpartum when energy demands for lactation and maintenance exceed the energy supply from dietary intake. NEB can, in turn, lead to metabolic disorders and to reduced fertility. Alterations in the expression of more than 700 hepatic genes have previously been reported in a study of NEB in postpartum dairy cows. miRNAs (microRNA) are known to mediate many alterations in gene expression post transcriptionally. To study the hepatic miRNA content of postpartum dairy cows, including their overall abundance and differential expression, in mild NEB (MNEB) and severe NEB (SNEB), short read RNA sequencing was carried out. To identify putative targets of differentially expressed miRNAs among differentially expressed hepatic genes reported previously in dairy cows in SNEB computational target identification was employed. Our results indicate that the dairy cow liver expresses 53 miRNAs at a
BACKGROUND: Body image (BI) and body satisfaction may be important in understanding weight loss behaviors, particularly during the postpartum period. We assessed these constructs among African American and white overweight postpartum women. METHODS: The sample included 162 women (73 African American and 89 white) in the intervention arm 6 months into the Active Mothers Postpartum (AMP) Study, a nutritional and physical activity weight loss intervention. BIs, self-reported using the Stunkard figure rating scale, were compared assessing mean values by race. Body satisfaction was measured using body discrepancy (BD), calculated as perceived current image minus ideal image (BD,0: desire to be heavier; BD,0: desire to be lighter). BD was assessed by race for: BD(Ideal) (current image minus the ideal image) and BD(Ideal Mother) (current image minus ideal mother image). RESULTS: Compared with white women, African American women were younger and were less likely to report being married, having any ...
Womens experiences of their perineum following childbirth: expectations, reality and returning to normality The aim of the study was to explore the feelings, perceptions and experiences of women in relation to their perineum following childbirth in the early postnatal period. A grounded theory approach was used for collecting and analysing data from eleven diaries and seven interviews with broad questions about how the perineum, following a vaginal birth, affected the way daily living activities were carried out. Initially purposeful sampling was utilised to recruit women but as important issues emerged recruitment continued through theoretical sampling. Following childbirth women expressed a strong desire to get back to normal reflecting the core theme `striving for normality. Normality in this context meant doing normal things and feeling like their normal selves. Much of what the women described doing during the early postnatal period was related to achieving that goal and linked to the ...
AUTHOR: RACHEL RABINOR, LCSW. Im thrilled to share that this September, San Diegos Postpartum Health Alliance will be offering two trainings in Interpersonal Psychotherapy: IPT Level A, and IPT for Group.. I recently had the opportunity to sit down and talk with Dr. Scott Stuart, the Director of the International Psychotherapy Institute (link: https://iptinstitute.com/about-ipt/about-ipt-institute/) and learn more about what sets IPT apart from other modalities. Dr. Stuart has provided training in IPT for clinicians and supervisors in over 30 countries, and has been doing teaching, research and clinical work in IPT for over 2 decades. He has a particular interest in serving the perinatal population, though as you will learn, IPT is an effective modality for working with many presenting issues and populations.. For those unfamiliar with IPT, I want to provide a general overview of IPT and why it is particularly effective for treating PMADS before we dive into our conversation.. What is ...

From the late first trimester to the early puerperium, a smaller dose of local anaesthetic is required to obtain the desired level of spinal or extradural blockade. Physical spread of the solution can be increased by changes in the lumbar lordosis and in the volume and density of the CSF. Cephalad spread is not related to the degree of weight gain during pregnancy, but is greater in twin compared with singleton pregnancies, perhaps due to an effect on intra-abdominal pressure, as discussed or through a progesterone-mediated increase in neuronal sensitivity. During the last months of gestation, approximately two-thirds of the normal dose is adequate. This altered response subsides progressively in the early postpartum period ...
DISCUSSION. Nipple trauma is one of the major breast problems that directly influences the breastfeeding13 experience and is pointed out as one of the main risk factors for weaning. 14 The females surveyed were considered in fertile age in the age bracket. The mean age of postpartum women was similar to data from an incidence study where 2,331 medical records were analyzed, with a mean age of 24.7 years.15 It is noteworthy that the literature indicates that adolescence is associated with a higher occurrence of breast problems,13 among them the nipple trauma,16 however, age did not present statistical significance for the occurrence of trauma in the sample.. More than half of the postpartum women did not exercise paid activities, similar to the percentage found in other studies, ranging from 56 to 75%.9,17-18 The fact of working outside home is still a controversial issue in literature. Working outside home behaved as a protective factor for breast problems.13 However, it was associated with ...
Hemorrhage post partum is bleeding 500 cc or more after the third stage is complete or after the placenta is born. The incidence of post partum hemorrhage increases due to several risk factors, namely: maternal age, parity, birth distance, labor history, anemia, long and gemelli delivery. This study is sequential to determine the risk factors that cause post partum hemorrhage at the Pare Kediri Regional General Hospital.The research design used in this study was descriptive by using a single variable, namely the risk factor for the cause of post partum hemorrhage at the Pare Kediri Regional General Hospital. The sample size of 29 respondents was post partum mothers who had bleeding with complete medical record data from January 2015 to May 2015. The sampling technique used total sampling (saturated sampling). The study was conducted on 5 September-5 October 2015 with 29 respondents. Secondary data collection by looking at medical records. Data analysis with descriptive statistics. Based on the ...
From 34% to 73% of women with GDM completed postpartum glucose screening. Predictors of higher screening rates included older age, nulliparity, and higher income or education. Screening rates varied by race/ethnicity; Asian women were more likely to be screened than were other racial/ethnic minorities. Women who received prenatal care, who were treated with insulin during pregnancy, or who completed a 6-week postpartum visit were also more likely to receive screening. A moderate proportion of women screened had type 2 diabetes (1.2%-4.5%) or prediabetes (12.2%-36.0 ...
OBJECTIVE: We describe a woman who presented with a psychiatric disorder post-partum and subsequently developed seizures and cognitive dysfunction prompting further investigation. A diagnosis of limbic encephalitis (LE) was made and antibodies to voltage-gated potassium channel complex (VGKC) detected. These antibodies are found in many non-paraneoplastic patients with LE. Although antibody-mediated conditions tend to present or relapse post-partum, VGKC-LE in the post-partum period has not been described. DESIGN: Case report. RESULTS: Clinical and imaging data were consistent with limbic encephalitis. High titres of anti-VGKC-complex antibodies confirmed the diagnosis of VGKC-LE. CONCLUSION: The similarities between the psychiatric symptomatology of VGKC-LE and post-partum psychiatric disorders raise the possibility that some instances of post-partum psychiatric conditions are manifestations of immune-mediated, non-paraneoplastic LE.

This study examined the relationship between infants reactivity and mothers emotionality during the early postpartum period, specifically during the first days of life and again by three months of age. The Clinical Neonatal Behavioral Scale (CLNBAS) was used to evaluate the infants. The mothers were evaluated at the same time by responding to questions on the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS). Forty-six mother-infant dyads were recruited from the Logan Regional Hospital childbirth classes for first-time parents. Minimum criteria for participation were that the mother must be married, be at least 18 years of age, have at least a high school education, with the infant must having a minimum APGAR score of 7 on the second APGAR evaluation and being the firstborn. There were 27 male and 19 female infants in the study. After the initial sign-up for participation, the mothers were contacted prior to the babys due date and arrangements were made to visit them for the first evaluation in the home.
RESULTS: Eleven studies were identified measuring health promotion behaviors as an outcome. Nine of the 11 targeted at-risk groups. Methodological problems included incomplete description of the intervention, steps taken to ensure representativeness of the sample, and identification and control of potential confounders. Diverse aspects of health promotion were addressed, the length of participant involvement differed, and the effectiveness of the interventions varied ...
Background: Pregnancy can be considered a predictor of future medical risk. Certain conditions that develop in pregnancy, such as, pregnancy induced hypertension and GDM evolve into chronic forms of the condition in subsequent years. GDM is observed in about 5% of pregnancies, is increasing in prevalence, and is associated with complications to the pregnancy and a long-term risk of diabetes in both mother and offspring. More than 60% of women with GDM develop type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) within the following 15 years. Arterial stiffness is an independent predictor of CV mortality and morbidity, both in low and high risk populations. The link between arterial stiffness and GDM is unclear and debatable with only a handful of small case-controlled studies having investigated arterial stiffness in women with GDM in late pregnancy and in the immediate postpartum period Aim: The overall aims of the work to be presented in this thesis are to examine maternal cardiovascular changes among women ...
A postpartum (or postnatal) period begins immediately after the birth of a child and extends for about six weeks, as the mothers body, including hormone levels and uterus size, returns to a non-pregnant state. Less frequently used are the terms puerperium or puerperal period. The World Health Organization (WHO) describes the postnatal period as the most critical and yet the most neglected phase in the lives of mothers and babies; most deaths occur during the postnatal period. In scientific literature, the term is commonly abbreviated to Px, where x is a number; for example, day P5 should be read as the fifth day after birth. This is not to be confused with the medical nomenclature that uses G P to stand for number and outcomes of pregnancy (gravidity and parity). Upon their entry to the air-breathing world, newborns begin to adjust to life outside the uterus. A woman giving birth in a hospital may leave as soon as she is medically stable, which can be as early as a few hours postpartum, ...
Postpartum interval to estrus and patterns of luteinizing hormone (LH) concentrations in first-calf suckled beef cows exposed to mature ...
Body condition scoring is a tool that can be used to estimate the energy reserves of cattle. In the beef industry a 9-point scale is used, with 1 being emaciated and 9 being obese (Kunkle, Sand, and Rae 1997). Using BCS, producers can estimate the energy balance of their herd, which is critical to reproductive efficiency. Reports have shown that by 80 days postpartum 62% of cows with a BCS of 4 or lower at calving were experiencing estrous cycles compared to 88%-98% that calved at a BCS of 5-6. Experiments have also demonstrated that cows with a BCS of 4 or lower had pregnancy rates of 61%, in contrast to 90% for those cows that calved with a BCS of 5 or greater (Selk et al. 1986).. Females with restricted intake of energy have decreased levels of LH secretion, which is the hormone that signals ovulation. Beef cows with inadequate energy reserves or poor BCS typically have several follicular waves before their first ovulation. Thus, energy reserves and intake affect the length of time until the ...
women suffering from hypertension are at an increased risk of heart failure within the six weeks after delivery, also known as the postpartum period.. Heart failure is a leading cause of maternal morbidity and death, affecting relatively young reproductive-age women, especially among those with the presence of an additional disease or condition, such as hypertension.. The recent clinical research study found that although less than two per cent of all pregnancy-related hospitalisations occurred during the postpartum period, nearly 60 per cent of pregnancy related heart failure hospitalisations took place during the same time.. In the study, published in the journal Circulation: Heart Failure, the team analysed more than 50 million pregnancy-related hospitalisations.. The results showed that there was a 7.1 per cent increase each year in heart failure diagnoses among postpartum hospitalisations.. In addition, heart failure rates during the antepartum period, or prior to delivery, increased by an ...

Review of postpartum procedures and devices. Pomeroy method. Developed in 1930, the Pomeroy method is highly effective and relatively inexpensive, although additional costs are incurred for pathology. This technique is associated with a small risk of postoperative mesosalpingeal bleeding, which often requires reoperation.. In this procedure, the tubes are grasped with a clamp and formed into a loop. A suture is tied around the loop, and the portion of the tube within the loop is cut.1. Filshie clip. The Filshie clip consists of a titanium (nonferrous) clip, 14 mm long, 4 mm wide, and 0.36 g in weight. It is lined with a silicone cushion, which facilitates occlusion of swollen and fragile fallopian tubes characteristic of the immediate postpartum period. The clip construction creates minimal damage to the surrounding structures.2,3 Only 4 mm of tube is destroyed, thus facilitating reanastomosis.4,5 There is no risk from the magnetic effects of future MRI investigations.. The soft silicone lining ...
Prof. Ben-Ami said that the coronavirus and the second wave Israel is currently facing have raised countless questions among pregnant women as well as following childbirth.. Since the first wave more data has accumulated among experts around the world indicating that the disease is more severe in pregnant women, Prof. Ben-Ami said. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released data on 8,200 pregnant women who contracted the coronavirus, and it turns out the hospitalization rate of pregnant women is 5 times higher than that of non-pregnant women. Hospitalization in intensive care and the need for ventilation were also higher. Intensive care hospitalization is 1.5 times higher compared to non-pregnant women. The need for respiration is 1.7 times higher.. On the other hand, there is no difference in the mortality rate, which is 1 in 500 (in women diagnosed with the coronavirus - JP), Prof. Ben-Ami noted.. Cesarean sections have also been significantly affected by the virus, ...

The premature birth of an infant and the following neonatal intensive care cause psychological distress and can have a traumatizing effect on parents. The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) environment has the potential to exacerbate stress for parents of infants admitted to the NICU. Mothers have typically been found to have higher levels of distress than fathers and they experience significant levels of stress and depression in the early postpartum period. Maternal stress can have deleterious effects on mother-infant interaction, particularly on mothers abilities to form an attachment to their baby. Participating in infant care influences the maternal feelings in a positive direction. When the mother is nearby, breastfeeds and takes care of her childs daily care she has a feeling of participation. This situation creates a need for practices that support parents during the acute phase of their infants hospitalization in neonatal intensive care. The facilitation of maternal confidence and positive

Many women have a tear to the skin between the vagina and anus (the perineum) following childbirth. These tears can sometimes involve the muscles that control the function of the anus, and women can suffer for the rest of their lives with difficulty controlling gas, liquid and solid stool. Evidence shows that by properly repairing these tears, complications can be reduced. The muscles can often be difficult to see with the naked eye due to a number of factors including reduced lighting, swelling of the tissues and poor pain relief.. In this review, we investigated whether using an ultrasound probe that is inserted into the anus before repairing the tear could help to identify undetected tears, delineate the extent of the muscle tear and allow for better repair and subsequently reduce long-term problems. We also looked at the use of anal ultrasound in women who had an anal muscle tear repaired and whether this improved these outcomes by influencing their subsequent management.. We found one ...
Abstract in English:. OBJECTIVE Determine the coverage rate of syphilis testing during prenatal care and the prevalence of syphilis in pregnant women in Brazil. METHODS This is a national hospital-based cohort study conducted in Brazil with 23,894 postpartum women between 2011 and 2012. Data were obtained using interviews with postpartum women, hospital records, and prenatal care cards. All postpartum women with a reactive serological test result recorded in the prenatal care card or syphilis diagnosis during hospitalization for childbirth were considered cases of syphilis in pregnancy. The Chi-square test was used for determining the disease prevalence and testing coverage rate by region of residence, self-reported skin color, maternal age, and type of prenatal and child delivery care units. RESULTS Prenatal care covered 98.7% postpartum women. Syphilis testing coverage rate was 89.1% (one test) and 41.2% (two tests), and syphilis prevalence in pregnancy was 1.02% (95%CI 0.84;1.25). A lower ...
Following childbirth and/or breast-feeding, many women find that their breasts have changed, often for the worse, in terms of size, shape and feel. As the skin loses elasticity, the breasts tend to lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. Even without pregnancies, the effects of time, gravity, and alternate weight gain and loss, can all take their toll. A breast uplift or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to reshape and raise sagging breasts without altering the overall volume of the breast.. It is best to wait until you have finished childbearing to have mastopexy. While a mastopexy doesnt usually interfere with future pregnancies, it is important to understand that having an uplift will not prevent the breasts from drooping over the years due to the natural ageing process.. The best results are usually achieved in women with small, sagging breasts. Although breasts of any size can be lifted, the result may not last as long in heavy breasts. It is important to bear in mind that, ...
Im sure she would be pleased to send you the PDF.. The article reports a large, well resourced, NIMH funded study, but I am going to argue that it has serious limitations. Strong claims are made about the value of routinely screening pregnant and postpartum women for depression, the risk of suicide that screening would reveal among these women, the presence of unrecognized and untreated bipolar disorder, and the potential for saving lives with screening.. While the authors did an impressively effective job of packaging the research, getting it published in a high impact journal, and publicizing it in the media, the take away message was simplistic and misleading.. I know, these criticisms are rather harsh. If you have accessed this article through a University library website or successfully obtained a PDF from the lead author, you can read it ahead of time or you can read it as you follow along, and decide for yourself.. As with the last blog post, this study also needs to be situated in the ...

Analysis of the Sinai Health Systems integrated medical database revealed a serious discontinuity of care, frequently observed in underserved communities, for mothers who delivered at the hospital but failed to return on a timely basis for postpartum visits for themselves and newborn visits for their babies. Since the Sinai Health System (SHS) is a fully integrated health system including community-based primary care, a process improvement project to improve rates of return was initiated. Prior to hospital discharge, a staff member visited each new mother and baby to schedule clinic follow-up appointments. Appointment compliance was monitored using the SHS integrated medical database. Results after the first year showed marked improvement. Eighty percent of mothers returned for postpartum care within 4 months of delivery compared to 46 at baseline. Eighty eight percent of newborns were seen in the clinics within the four month timeframe compared to a baseline of 59%. The integrated medical ...

Whats particularly amazing is that theyve instituted all kinds of safeguards to make sure PPD gets noticed, but they dont even make those safeguards work. In our state, you fill out a PPD questionnaire before leaving the hospital and another at your 6-week postpartum visit. In the hospital, mine was in the almost-certainly-depressed range (I wasnt depressed then, the questionnaire just didnt make much sense to ask immediately postpartum - what 40 week pregnant woman *hasnt* cried in the past week, hasnt felt a little out of control, hasnt felt a little overwhelmed or scared? and if her birth went way differently than she expected, hasnt felt responsible one day postpartum?) and then it was the same at my 6-week appointment (where, again, I wasnt actually depressed, but was anxious, traumatized, and dealing with a difficult medical situation). In the hospital the nurse said: I can tell youre not the kind of person whos going to be depressed, so dont worry about your result, it just ...

Has starting exercising at 6 weeks post-partum a negative impact on urinary incontinence and/or prolapse symptoms at 12 months post-partum?
An analysis of published studies indicates that physical exercise during pregnancy and the postpartum period is a safe way to achieve better psychological well-being and to reduce postpartum depressive symptoms.
Results: Among the 533 women in tight (N= 265) vs. less tight (N= 268) control who providedcomments for qualitative analysis, women in tight (vs. less tight) control made fewer positive comments about the amount of medication taken (5 vs. 28 women, respectively) and intensity of BP monitoring (7 vs. 17, respectively). However, this did not translate into less willingness to either have the same treatment in another pregnancy (434, 95.8% vs. 423, 92.4%, respectively; p= 0.14) or recommend that treatment to a friend (435, 96.0% and 428, 93.4%, respectively; p= 0.17). Importantly, although satisfaction remained high among women with an adverse outcome, those in tight control who suffered an adverse outcome (vs. those who did not) were not consistently less satisfied, whereas this was not the case among women in less tight control among whom satisfaction was consistently lower for the CHIPS primary outcome (p,0.001), severe hypertension (p~0.01), and pre-eclampsia (p,0.001 ...
Most of the above will be short lived, such as the perspiration, breast engorgement, gas, and urination problems The rest will be resolved in their own time, such as the Lochia, healing from the episiotomy if you had one, or healing from a Cesarean incision, and emotional highs and lows.. Also, your cervix takes about six weeks to close after a vaginal delivery, so no douching, no tampons, no sex right away, nothing in the vagina that might increase the risk of a vaginal infection. In six weeks after a vaginal birth, 8 weeks for Cesarean, you will have a postpartum check-up with your care provider.. The postpartum period in the hospital is also a very busy time, and a short stay before you go home. You will be visited daily by your obstetrician, and/or Midwife, nursery nurses, dietary, pediatrician, family, friends, the florist, Lactation nurse (if you are breastfeeding) and so on.. Lots of questions will be asked of you to discuss with your partner, such as circumcision, or breastfeedng verses ...
