Data on CHD cases and control infants were obtained from the National Birth Defects Prevention Study for the period of 1997 to 2002. Exposure to PAHs was assigned by industrial hygienist consensus, based on self-reported maternal occupational histories from 1 month before conception through the third month of pregnancy. Logistic regression was used to evaluate the association between maternal occupational PAH exposure and specific CHD phenotypic subtypes among offspring ...

Obesity is one of the leading threats to global public health. It is consequent to abnormal energy metabolism. Currently, it has been well established that maternal exposure to environmental stressors that cause inappropriate fetal development may have long-term adverse effects on offspring energy metabolism in an exposure timing-dependent manner, known as developmental programming of health and diseases paradigm. Rapidly increasing evidence has indicated that maternal exposure to ambient fine particles (PM2.5) correlates to abnormal fetal development. In the present study, we therefore assessed whether maternal exposure to diesel exhaust PM2.5 (DEP), the major component of ambient PM2.5 in urban areas, programs offspring energy metabolism, and further examined how the timing of exposure impacts this programming. The growth trajectory of offspring shows that although prenatal maternal exposure to DEP did not impact the birth weight of offspring, it significantly decreased offspring body weight from

New research shows that maternal exposure to a common and ubiquitous form of industrial pollution can harm the immune system of offspring and that this injury is passed along to subsequent generations, weakening the bodys defenses against infections such as the influenza virus.
JUSTIFICATIVA E OBJETIVOS: Vários estudos têm mostrado o peso ao nascer de ambos os pais como preditor do peso de nascimento do descendente, com correlação mais fortemente transmitida através da linhagem materna, sugerindo que exposições desfavoráveis à mãe desde a sua própria vida intrauterina até os períodos de pré-concepção e gestacional, além dos genes herdados, influenciam o tamanho ao nascimento da prole. A preocupação atual se relaciona ao ciclo intergeracional do baixo peso ao nascer ou do peso ao nascer elevado entre gerações, com todos os agravos imediatos e a longo prazo que estão implicados em nascer pequeno para a idade gestacional e/ou baixo peso ou grande para a idade gestacional e/ou macrossômico. O presente trabalho tem o objetivo de estudar a correlação entre o peso ao nascer da criança com o peso ao nascer da mãe, com as condições maternas, em crianças nascidas a termo no Hospital Universitário da USP (HU-USP). MÉTODOS: Foram identificados 773 ...

This study indicates that maternal occupational exposure to solvents may be associated with higher rates of ASD in their children. These results should be interpreted with caution given that this association did not remain significant after correcting the P-values for multiple comparisons. However, these results are consistent with earlier reports that have identified solvents as a potential risk factor for ASD.5 9 28 Research in the non-ASD population has found that solvents can be absorbed into the blood via skin or lungs.29 Water-soluble solvents may be cleared out of the body in urine or faeces, but many solvents are retained in organs including the brain. Solvents can also be metabolised into more toxic secondary substances (eg, methyl-butyl ketone, n-hexane) that are associated with a number of neurological effects and changes.29 In infants, solvents have been found to interfere with the glial guidance process which inhibits neuritic outgrowth.30 Infants of mothers who have been exposed to ...
PCBs are industrial chemicals that have neurotoxic effects, and studies indicate that they interfere with normal functions of the endocrine system. Although the manufacturing of PCBs was banned in the 1970s, they remain a major contaminant of the environment and of human tissues. Epidemiological studies show that exposure to PCBs during intrauterine development is highly associated with measurable neurological deficits in the offspring. In addition, deficits associated with PCBs are inversely associated with maternal thyroid hormone (TH) levels. This suggests that PCBs interfere with TH action in the fetal brain. Using in situ hybridization to measure HES-1 and HES-5 mRNA (direct markers of Notch activity), our laboratory has found that both maternal thyroid status and maternal exposure to PCBs influences Notch signaling in the fetal rat brain. We found that Aroclor 1254 produces a dose-dependent increase in HES-1 expression in the ventricular zone. Recent evidence suggests that Notch signaling ...

I am so sorry things arent going well for your dreams for a second child. I just wanted to offer you a little hope, first of all, I have TWO friends who have the same clotting disorder, it must be very common! One of my best college friends had a son, then tried for her 2nd for several years and I think she miscarried at least 5 times or more. She did get pregnant again once they figured things out and she had to give herself shots almost her entire pregnancy, but she was able to keep the baby that time. So I think there are things that can be done?? You should check with your doctor about it if you havent already. Dont give up hope! ;) Ill be praying for you. Also- maybe you know but Kerigan didnt come easy for us, either. We have infertility (different issues, but still just as frustrating), and she took 2 years and several shots/treatments too. Why cant it just be easy?! Especially for good moms and dads who deserve another baby. It is so hard when it doesnt come easy for people like ...

Also, through pregnancy we discovered the Affiliation to become especially with the third-trimester exposure in products that involved exposure in all trimesters alongside one another. The specificity from the Affiliation for the prenatal period is in line with a number of other lines of proof that propose a prenatal origin of ASD, like data on variances in brain cytoarchitecture in brains of youngsters with ASD (McFadden and Minshew 2013; Stoner et al. 2014) and associations among maternal exposure to teratogens for the duration of pregnancy and ASD (Rodier 1995). Our effects also advise an association predominantly in boys, but this locating ought to be interpreted with warning, given the little number of ladies with ASD inside our sample ...

So this is making me feel like a FTM (first time mom) wll over again... even though I know its probably nothing I cant help but be a bit nervous. I havent had spotting this entire pregnancy. DH (dear husband) and I havent had sex recently (or, because of me, hardly ever this pregnancy) so I know its not that. Last night I wiped and noticed some pink/brown discharge. I have not been having cramping other than random BH yesterday during my normal walk in the afternoon. Thr only pain Ive had is RLP and pain in my vagina since shes been sitting so low this whole pregnancy. I have felt her move afterwards, not doing kick counts but it doesnt feel like more or less than normal) I called my OB last night and am waiting to get in for an appointment this morning at her request. Anyone else have the same thing? To be honest whats making me more worried is our LO (little one) PAPP-A result and that I oftrn have pain in my vagina due to babys position

AMHERST, Mass. - Some studies indicate that early life exposure to pollutants such as PCBs and phthalates can predispose people to disease. Now environmental scientist Alicia Timme-Laragy at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has received a five-year, $1.7 million grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences for a multi-level study of early life exposure to environmental contaminants and aberrant pancreas development, which may predispose one to diabetes.. Disease may result from environmental contaminant exposure in early life via oxidative stress, disrupted signaling pathways controlling embryo growth, or via subtle structural or functional changes to insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells, she notes. Results of this work will be relevant to public health officials concerned about such exposures as well as molecular biologists studying signaling pathways to gain a mechanistic understanding of disease processes very early in life.. The researchers will study toxic ...

A new study of delivery outcome following maternal use of SSRI antidepressants in earlypregnancy has been conducted utilizing the Swedish national registry data. Previouspublished studies utilizing these registry data, and cited in the previous version of theparoxetine Prescribing Information, found no evidence for an increased overall risk ofmajor malformations with maternal exposure to SSRI medications, including paroxetine(Hallberg 2005, Ericson 1999). In this latest study, the population that was investigatedcomprised infants of 6,896 women exposed to antidepressants in early pregnancy(including 5,175 infants born to 5,123 women reporting the use of any SSRI in the firsttrimester). Among them, 815 women reported the use of paroxetine and they delivered822 infants. Rates of malformations in these infants were compared with the generalpopulation experience. No increase in the overall rate of congenital malformations wasobserved in infants exposed to paroxetine (4.9%), compared with the general ...

We did not find out what we were having, but we were quite convinced we were having a boy. We had our girl name picked out for basically my entire pregnancy. We decided on our boy name about 2 weeks before my due date and we still werent totally sold on it. She came out a girl, though, so it all worked out! We wanted a biblical name that wasnt weird for the first name and family name for the middle name. My hubby listens to this radio show called Garage Logic and they talk about foghornable names which are weird names, so we couldnt go with anything weird. I also have a pet peeve about common names that are spelled in weird ways, so that was out. Picking a name is really hard!

Hey all! Long time since Ive been here. I just weaned my 2nd child in January 2012 after 2 years of BF..and had my 3rd child December 7. Ive been exclusively breastfeeding since birth. I pumped some with my 2nd child but dont remember the rules of when or how to pump an occasional bottle.

I had the best 2 hour nap of my life. I seriously hadnt slept this well my entire pregnancy, and I remembered thinking to myself, I hope the nurse doesnt wake me up; I could sleep for another 3 days like this -- maybe we can deliver the baby in three days? It was around 10am at this point, and I told King that Id probably be ready to push around noon (I was 7-8 cm dilated, but babys head was still far up). King thought it would be closer to 3-4pm. The nurse woke me up around 1pm and checked and saw that the baby had descended, and I was fully dilated. So we did our first practice push. At the end of the push, she said to King (who was holding one leg while the nurse had the other leg) See that black part? Thats the top of the babys head. I was really encouraged, I figured, it cant be that far if they can already see the top of the babys head. We did a few more pushes, and I was gaging how it was going based on King & the nurses reactions and expressions. King said to me in Hindi at ...
When I found out that I was pregnant with my first baby, the only thought I had about breastfeeding was Im going to breastfeed and that was it. Simple. I never gave it another thought throughout the entire pregnancy.. But breastfeeding isnt so linear. Its a complex beast thats full of incredible highs and lows. I remember thinking back to my third week of breastfeeding my now 8-month-old son Hudson that breastfeeding is way harder than childbirth itself - and I went through over 20 hours of labour only to end up having an emergency C-Section, but thats a story for another time.. Our nursing journey started off beautifully, with my husband being the person to place our son onto my breast for the first time several hours after my C-section surgery. I was elated that Hudson latched well enough to feed happily. By the third day, my milk had come in and it felt like a surreal high to be able to feed my little boy and soothe him while holding his tiny body up so close against mine. It was, as ...
Once she gets to Childrens, they will do an ultrasound on her to check to make sure all the other internal organs look fine. They will also repeat the fetal echocardiogram to ensure that her heart is strong enough for surgery. She explained that a lot of kids with this issue also have other organ issues, so if they are going to go in and do a repair they want to know ahead of time of any other issues so they can fix them all. An example was to make sure there wasnt any blockage in the esophageal/tracheal region, proper kidney functioning, etc. She said that most of these issues would have already shown themselves on a previous ultrasound, but they will double-check. She also said that sometimes these kids have an extra vertebra or shortened limbs. Im not too considered about the limbs considering this kids limbs have been measuring 2-3 weeks ahead for the entire pregnancy. ...

Results Multivariable analysis showed a strong association with potential maternal occupational exposure to heavy metals with an over twofold increased risk of hypospadias (OR 2.6; 95% CI 1.3 to 5.2), and women exposed to phthalates were more likely to have an affected son (OR 1.2; 95% CI 0.8 to 1.7). Compared with mild or isolated cases, the risks of moderate-severe hypospadias or multiple defects were increased up to two- and fivefold, respectively, with maternal exposure to most types of EDCs. Paternal occupational exposures to polychlorinated organic (OR 1.3; 95% CI 1.0 to 1.8) and bi-phenolic (OR 1.6; 95% CI 1.0 to 2.6) compounds were also possible risk factors. ...
Mounting evidence has shown an increased risk of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in association with elevated exposure to air pollution. However, limited evidence is available concerning the effect of specific air pollutant(s) on GDM incidence. We conducted this case-control study on 6717 mothers with GDM diagnosed in 2006-2013 and 6717 age- and year of delivery-matched controls to further address the risk of GDM in relation to specific air pollutant. Both cases and controls were selected from a cohort of 1-million beneficiaries of Taiwans National Health Insurance program registered in 2005. Maternal exposures to mean daily air pollutant concentration, derived from 76 fixed air quality monitoring stations within the 12-week period prior to pregnancy and during the 1st and 2nd trimesters, were assessed by the spatial analyst method (i.e., ordinary kriging) with the ArcGIS software. After controlling for potential confounders and other air pollutants, an increase in pre-pregnancy exposure of 1 inter
The persistence of racial disparities in low birth weight (LBW) and preterm birth (PTB) is one of the most widely documented problems in public health. Most studies of these birth outcomes have focused primarily on maternal exposure to individual-level risk factors during the prenatal period. That research has resulted in only a partial explanation for the observed disparities. My research, therefore, had two primary aims: (1) to examine the relationship between adverse birth outcomes and maternal exposure to family and neighborhood disadvantage during childhood; and (2) to determine the behavioral, psychosocial, and health pathways through which these exposures affect birth outcomes and translate into racial disparities. Data for this research came from Waves I and III of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health). The sample consisted of 500 Black and 1,077 White females who gave birth in late adolescence or young adulthood. I used structural equation modeling to test ...
A study of published work was carried out in a search for evidence of a causal role for parental occupational exposure in the origin of structural and functional defects of the central nervous system (CNS) in children. Studies that consider this topic are scarce and mostly refer to broad categories of exposures and effects. Non-occupational studies referring to environmental exposure of humans and studies on experimental animals were also reviewed. The studies on animals provided straightforward evidence about morphological and behavioural abnormalities resulting from some agents used occupationally. The studies on humans yielded a scala of defects that could be ascribed to exposure to high doses of various agents in the environment. Evidence for a causal role of occupational exposure has not been found, but a highly probable influence on the developing CNS is hypothesised for lead, methyl mercury, and ionising radiation. Parental occupational exposure to cadmium, organic solvents, anaesthetics, ...

John:. I and other community members are still concerned about chemical exposures to all Kipp factory workers, especially women who are or could become pregnant.. As far as VOCs and exposures via vapor intrusion, TCE is of particular concern because it is more toxic than PCE-it is a carcinogen and also causes neurological, immune system, kidney, liver, reproductive, and developmental effects. Many of the effects from fetal exposures may not show up until adulthood. Vapor intrusion screening levels for TCE are much lower than for PCE-see here.** Also, recently government risk assessors concluded that the weight of evidence indicates that TCE and/or its metabolites could cause cardiac defects in fetuses even if maternal exposure durations are short, one-time, and relatively low dose. Below my name, I pasted a summary from an EPA TCE risk assessment document re TCE and heart defects. You can find the IRIS info on TCE toxicity here and here.. We know Kipp used TCE as well as PCE at least into the ...

2020 Elsevier LtdThe patho-etiology of mental disorders with onset in childhood or adolescence remains largely unknown. We conducted an umbrella review of meta-analyses (MAs) on environmental factors associated with mental disorders with onset in childhood/adolescence. We searched Pubmed-MEDLINE/EMBASE/PsycInfo databases, last search April 29th, 2020. Quality of MAs was measured with AMSTAR-2. Out of 6851 initial references, ten articles met inclusion criteria, providing 23 associations between 12 potential environmental factors and nine disorders (cases: 8884; N = 3,660,670). While almost half of the associations were nominally significant, none of them met criteria from either convincing or highly suggestive evidence. A single association was supported by suggestive evidence (maternal exposure to lithium or antipsychotics with neuromotor deficits), but it was affected by confounding by indication. Ten more associations had weak evidence, and 12 associations were not statistically significant. ...

Hey everyone... So, I went to the doc yesterday. They were really nice and she listened to everything from the very beginning. She said that it could still possibly be hemrroids (I dont believe that one), but she said since the prednisone did improve my symptoms that its indictive of inflammation. They really dont want to do a colonoscopy until after I deliver, so they are going to start me on cesena (spelling???) Its a suppository.... Im really nervous, but she said it comes with directions and everything. So my pharmacy ordered it, and it should get here by Friday. She also wants me to ween off the prednisone in the next two weeks, which Im super glad for cuz I wasnt comfortable being on it anyway. She said if the cesena works theyll keep me on that for the entire pregnancy and then do the colonoscopy. If it doesnt work, theyll do a flexiscope, I think she said, in the doctors office. She said it could be Crohns with my family history, but they arent entirely sure. So, they are ...
