An Invisible Epidemic Of Obstetric Violence Is Stripping Indian Women Of Their Dignity In Childbirth

by pregnancy journalist
Obstetric violence, both physical and verbal, is taken for granted in Indian hospitals, but is an assault on human rights & dignity, leading to a lot of morbidity and mortality. Obstetric violence, was a term I encountered, while researching for a write-up on abortion. It was an unfamiliar term; a term I’d never come across nor experienced the depth of its meaning. And, sadly, a term that, unflinchingly, brought to light, how much my privilege – as an educated, upper-middle-class, urban woman – had cotton wrapped me. I’m confident that many women, hailing from a similar economic stratum may not be […]

Natick Woman Getting Pregnant With 4th Child While 3 Others Are In DCF Care Is Why I Wouldn’t Oppose Mandatory Sterilization For Repeat Offenders

by pregnancy journalist
Some may argue that government forced sterilization for those deemed unable to provide appropriate parenting and child rearing, is an example of government overreach. For those people I present to you Katherine Lanagan, AKA Katherine Jeffs, but better known to turtle riders as the Natick Dumpsterslug. Shes’s been in the news a lot for on Facebook for drug money, losing three children to DCF and making no steps whatsoever to get them back, for criticizing her life choices, unironically  for not maintaining employment, and spending taxpayer money to . She’s one of less than a handful of individuals to appear in more than […]

Childbirth Terms Can Make You Want to Puke :: How To Be A Dad

by pregnancy journalist
Childbirth Terms Can Make You Want to Puke You can turn the most vulgar, scary or embarassing concept into a phrase that you might expect Thumper to say to Bambie. It’s called a euphemism (yoo-fuh-miz-uhm). “The stork” are just two simple words and look how handy they are for some shyer parents as a quick dodge for answering a little child’s question about where babies come from. Some people just can’t face going into an explanation of a penis energetically penetrating a woman’s vagina, squirting fluid inside and then making a tiny body grow inside her belly. Go figure. But, that’s […]

I’ve Been Deeply Terrified Of Getting Pregnant My Entire Life. I Finally Know Why. | HuffPost

by pregnancy journalist
Many women see pregnancy announcements and tenderly reminisce about their own experiences or feel envious of the mother-to-be. Many women see an expecting mother and think of a dream fulfilled. Many women see a pregnant belly and are drawn to it, often wanting to touch it. I see pregnancy announcements and experience a visceral negative reaction related to my overwhelming terror of miscarriages, stillbirths, diseases and illnesses. I see an expecting mother and envision unbearable pain, ripping, bleeding and screaming. I see a pregnant belly and my instinct is to retreat to avoid any possibility of being invited to touch […]

Many Women Feel They Were “Mistreated” & “Threatened” During Childbirth, New Study Reveals

by pregnancy journalist
Childbirth is one of the most difficult, painful, and monumental experiences many women will go through in their lifetimes. So it’s both discouraging and distressing to learn that, in the United States, many women feel they were “mistreated” or “threatened” during childbirth, as a new study called “Giving Voice to Mothers” has revealed. The new study published in the journal Reproductive Health earlier this month found that 1 in 6 women, roughly 17.3 percent, felt that they were in some way “mistreated” while in labor and delivery. Researchers surveyed roughly 2,000 women in the United States, and each reported one […]

How Long It Really Takes To Get Pregnant

by pregnancy journalist
Is there a way to tell when you could get pregnant? Some women conceive as soon as they try to, some women take months while some take a year or longer. Does getting pregnant quicker depend on your fertility or monthly period cycle or climatic conditions? These are the questions that come to every woman’s mind who is trying to conceive. While some believe that having an intercourse a week prior to the start of the monthly period will boost the chances of pregnancy, others believe in letting this happen naturally. There are also some who think that at a […]

Jennifer Carroll Foy Almost Died After Childbirth Because—Like Many Black Women—Her Pain Was Dismissed

by pregnancy journalist
Jennifer Carroll Foy, a public defender and mother of twins who’s running for governor of Virginia this year, was trying to deliver a stump speech via Zoom from her home on Thursday night when one of her 3-year-old sons burst into the room, flicked off the lights and ran off cackling. “It’s 8 o’clock, I’m trying to get the crowd riled up virtually, and suddenly the whole room is dark,” she tells me in a Zoom interview the next morning. “I jumped up from the table trying not to fuss, trying to find the light switch. This is my life.” […]

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Falsely Claims Abortion is Safer Than Childbirth

by pregnancy journalist
The abortion industry has been more successful than many other propaganda groups in making lies take hold in the public imagination through repetition. Examples include: “It’s not a baby; it’s just a clump of cells.” “Thousands of women died every year from unsafe abortion before Roe v. Wade.” “Abortion is health care.” Every one of these assertions is demonstrably false. Yet one of the most pervasive and dangerous lies promulgated by abortionists and their friends in government and the media is that abortion is safer than childbirth. The lie is so deeply ingrained in the pro-abortion psyche that even Supreme […]
