Why holiday babies are becoming less common

Could it be possible that the diminishing number of holiday babies has to do with the increased likelihood of a baby being born from a cesarean section delivery? Absolutely. What is the reason for the increase in cesarean sections? Is that because we have the advancements in medicine that allow us to save more babies and thus, we opt for surgical births instead of natural? Some may be, but according to researcher estimations, nearly half of the cesarean deliveries performed now are done for other reasons, when there was no reason to suspect a natural birth would be problematic.

When gross negligence speaks for itself

Nightmares should remain in the dark. They should be something you wake up from, to the comfort of a soft pillow and the relief that it is already receding into the shadows as the sun comes up on your day. But what if your nightmare doesn't recede? What if the man or woman or medical team that has taken an oath to heal has become so desensitized to the gravity of their role that they make mistakes? What if the mistakes they make are so obvious in nature that even an untrained eye can spot the error?

What recourse do I have if I think my baby has cerebral palsy?

Cerebral palsy. While the term itself is a bit general and covers a broad array of malfunctions by the brain and body, the cause is often related to birthing complications. The issues that may arise might also not be immediately apparent. Things such as weakened muscle tone, uncontrolled movements, slow development in specific areas and vision and hearing problems may not readily present themselves for a period of time.

When medicine hurts you

We've all been there at some point. Sitting in a doctor's office, attempting to relay all the symptoms of our illness over a timeline that is hazed with sleeplessness and an achy fatigue. The doctor turns to type, recalls a humorous story that stems from one of your symptoms, pops a head out in the hall to relay something to a nurse or focuses on one aspect of your relay but seems not to absorb the remainder of what you describe.
