Safety body highlights ‘devastating impact’ of missed ectopic pregnancy

by pregnancy journalist
Prompt referral to early pregnancy services can make the difference between life and death in the diagnosis of ectopic pregnancies, a report reveals today. An investigation carried out by the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch found that differing levels of provision and a mismatch between capacity and demand in early pregnancy units (EPUs) heightens the risk that the diagnosis of the time-critical condition is delayed or missed. Ectopic pregnancy occurs when the fertilised egg implants outside the uterus, usually in the Fallopian tube. If it’s left untreated, it can rupture and cause internal bleeding putting women at risk of severe harm […]

How Women Over 50 Are Getting Pregnant

by pregnancy journalist
Maria Lancaster had already suffered through a handful of failed pregnancies in her late 30s and early 40s, and she remembers the despair she felt after she miscarried at 46, but she was determined to try again. Wanting a baby more than ever, Lancaster purchased a white wooden cradle and placed it next to her bed. Around the same time, her husband — a fan of Christian talk radio — heard the story of a woman who had just given birth through a radically new approach to fertility. When he got home, he burst into the kitchen to tell Lancaster […]

Maternity leave: ‘Women need more support from schools’

by pregnancy journalist
Maternity coaching is not a new concept – it has been a growing industry for over 10 years in the private sector. So how did it come about? What are the benefits? And why should schools care?   Having a baby is a major life transition. It offers a new perspective and raises questions about both personal and professional identity. Supporting women as they negotiate this new territory is not simply a way of making them feel valued and promoting well-being (as important as these things are), it also makes good business sense. As well as providing personal support, maternity […]

My Green Pregnancy #9: Second Hand Maternity Look without Maternity Clothes! – Conscious Lifestyle of Mine

by pregnancy journalist
– Advertisement/Werbung – No matter, if pregnant or not, second hand clothes are always a wonderful option for a sustainable and eco friendly wardrobe! Wearing second hand pieces during pregnancy is very common, however in today’s post I want to show you how I styled an outfit that consists of only non-maternity second hand pieces and yet fits my belly perfectly. Why I do that? Because I believe that we do not need to buy a ton of maternity clothes that will be worn for a maximum of six months and then never again. All clothes that I wear during […]

August 26, 2020 8 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. “And who stays with your son in the afternoon?” the nurse had asked, furiously pecking away at the keyboard as she captured all the answers to her questions at that annual physical checkup. What is he eating these days? Does he nap in the afternoon? When is he starting school full time? “With our nanny,” I had replied, helping him put his shoes back on. “Not with you?” the nurse had asked, surprised.  “Umm, no, I work and so….” “Ohhh.” A long pause. Her eyebrows arched high, and a judgmental smile slowly […]

Maternity Clothes REVIEWS: Affordable Denim, Tops, Sweaters, and the BEST Dress

by pregnancy journalist
Wow, this post is much overdue as I’m 27 weeks right now and almost in the 3rd trimester and only now getting around to posting these reviews for maternity clothes!  Part of it was due to the holiday posting schedule and part of it was launching the PMT Winter 2018 Challenge.  But a large part of it is because I haven’t bought that many maternity clothes, so until recently there wasn’t even a whole lot to review.  That said, a few of these pics are from November when I was 18 weeks pregnant while the rest are from a couple […]
