by pregnancy journalist
What’s A-Parent is a series highlighting those who get real about the hardships that come with raising kids. These often untold stories help show parents they are not alone in their struggle, and are doing an amazing job. “Normally I have one million projects at the same time,” Gerhardsen tells A Plus in an email. This can include exhibitions, murals, and beyond. “But when it was about time to do the paternity leave-disco with my second child, I put all my other projects down for four months. Put everything on hold, just focusing on my son. I knew that [raising my […]

‘Difference for working mums’: Free kinder, more after-school care on the way

by pregnancy journalist
“Labor should not be taking 10 years to implement this funding,” she said. “The government should halve this target so that all three-year-olds can have access to quality early education.” Julie Sonnemann, acting program director of school education at the Grattan Institute, said the package would “make a big difference to working mothers who have taken a hit in 2020 due to COVID”. Ms Sonnemann said while she hoped the announcement would go some way to increasing participation rates among disadvantaged children, cheaper kinder probably wasn’t enough to result in big rises.

When’s the best time to start buying maternity clothes? – MadeForMums

by pregnancy journalist
When we asked our mums at what point in their pregnancy they started wearing maternity clothes – we were surprised at how early on lots of them started buying. ‘I think I was about 9 weeks when I started wearing some maternity bits, mainly jeans,” MrsKP told us. And Snugglenush said: “I went in to work in maternity trousers at 10 weeks – just for the comfort of it!” If you are kitting yourself out in the early stages of pregnancy, though, maternity clothes may seem HUGE – but try not to buy too small: you could even use a small […]

Hormonal Used in Place of Chemotherapy for Ectopic Pregnancy

by pregnancy journalist
PHILADELPHIA — Ectopic pregnancy can be ended just as effectively with letrozole, an aromatase inhibitor, as with methotrexate, a chemotherapeutic agent, according to a small study that generated excitement here at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine 2019 Scientific Congress. “This has never been shown before” and, if confirmed, “could be huge,” said investigator Mohamed Mitwally, MD, from the Odessa Reproductive Medicine Center in Helotes, Texas, who presented the findings at the congress. In contrast to methotrexate, letrozole works hormonally, “so this is potentially a huge breakthrough, in that you wouldn’t need a chemotherapy regimen to treat an ectopic pregnancy,” […]

Group of women claim “self stimulation” is the key to getting through childbirth

by pregnancy journalist
The Divinyls sang back in the 80’s about the fine line between pleasure and pain. Somehow I don’t think they were talking about metaphors for masturbation and childbirth, but I’ve been wrong once or twice before. I never thought I’d see those two bloody words in the same sentence, but Melbourne based Doula Angela Gallo recently wrote a post about the benefits of mum’s-to-be, ah… diddlin’ the ol’ skittle during labour as a form of natural pain relief. Credit: Skittles via YouTube About giving birth to her second kid, Angela said: “As I neared transition, near the end of labor, I was feeling very […]

Martha McSally: Women in the military get pregnant to “skirt” deployment | Salon.com

by pregnancy journalist
Arizona Republican senator and former Air Force combat pilot Martha McSally once published an academic paper in which she said military servicewomen should be counseled against the “foolishness of entering into a lifetime commitment (motherhood)” to avoid deployment, and called for the Pentagon to repeal the policy that allows women to use pregnancy as an excuse to “skirt” their commitment. The article, titled “Women in Combat: Is the Current Policy Obsolete?” appeared in a 2007 edition of the Duke Journal of Gender Law & Policy. At the time, McSally, the first female combat pilot in U.S. history — and the first-ever losing Senate candidate to immediately receive a Senate seat — was […]

Getting Fit With Maternity Clothes – Escrito Mum

by pregnancy journalist
There are women who are able to get fit even though they are pregnant. These are the women whom I wish to emulate but fail to. I love tights. I can just put on a loose tunic or long blouse and I am ready to go out. A good bra fits us and it should be comfortable. Once you have recovered your body, another pair is just right for you. I love long sleeves. Never mind that the weather is hot on most days. So, what do you like to wear? This content was originally published here.
