Thats Why Its Called a Birth Preference Instead of a Plan "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

I have long-struggled to like myself. I hated my body and lacked self confidence in many areas, so finding out I was pregnant just triggered a heightened sense of anxiety for me. Finding out I was diabetic at my first OB appointment made things even worse. As the doctor rattled off the list of awful things that could result, I sat there expecting each to all happen to my baby, and they would all be my fault. I wondered if I could live with myself if I caused such pain for my beautiful growing baby macrosomia, dislocated limbs during birth, heart and spine defects, respiratory problems One thing I had been told from the beginning I would be induced at 38 or 39 weeks due to an increased risk of stillbirth for infants of diabetic mothers. I strongly opposed an induction but wanted to do what was best for our baby.

As the pregnancy progressed and my education on the issues increased, I became a model patient (the doctors words). My confidence grew as quickly as my sugars and A1C decreased, and for the first time in my adult life, I was actually feeling good about myself and my body. This new-found confidence gave me the ability to try new things (like yoga, which has been life-changing!) And maybe it was my mama bear instincts forming, but I was blessed with a feisty courage that I had not previously known to speak up for myself. Did that cause some tension between my doctors and me? Yes. Was it worth it? YES.

At that point, if I pictured our babys ideal birth, it would be in a peaceful environment outside of a hospital, calm, quiet, in water, with no interventions. My husband and I took a hypnoyoga birth class and hired a doula. I talked to several midwives; however, they couldnt deliver my baby, due to the fact that I was taking insulin. I started researching natural induction methods to encourage baby out on her own. I drank red raspberry leaf tea, walked every day, faithfully attended yoga, saw my chiropractor once a week, got acupuncture, used essential oils on acupressure points, and visualized her calm, peaceful birth every chance I had. And still, the induction date (Sunday) arrived with no sign that baby Samantha was going to come out on her own.

As we walked the short hallway to the antepartum wing, I debated escaping. But I was with my husband and his mom, and really, pregnant ladies cant run that fast. So we checked in, got settled in our room, and I was soon disappointed to learn that I wasnt even ripe! After three doses of Misoprostol throughout the night, Resident S (that I ended up liking the most) tried and failed to insert a Foley bulb. Also throughout the night, our amazing nurse...

Do Your Moles Ever Go Away? "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

By Dr. Mercola

Skin is your body's largest and fastest growing organ, used to protect your body from bacteria and germs, regulate your temperature, get rid of waste products and house a nervous system that allows you to feel and sense your environment.1 Your skin is what others first notice about you, and is an indicator of both internal and external aging.

Skin cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in the U.S.2 Estimates suggest nearly 20 percent of all Americans will experience some form of skin cancer during their life. Non-melanoma skin cancers affect nearly 3 million Americans each year and more than 1 million are living with melanoma. The rates of diagnosis of basal cell (BCC) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCC), non-melanoma skin cancers, have been rising dramatically.

There has been an increase of 145 percent of BCC between 1976 to 1984 and 2000 to 2010, and a 263 percent increase of SCC during the same period.3 Routinely inspecting your skin increases the likelihood you'll recognize changes that may need medical attention, and will help you become more familiar with your unique pattern of moles (nevi), freckles and blemishes.

Monthly self-inspection is done in a well-lit room with the assistance of mirrors to inspect areas that are difficult to see. Your first examination may take longer as you record the location of moles and freckles on your body. This enables you to confirm the location and any changes each month forward. You might notice that a mole suddenly appears where there wasn't one before, or a mole you've had for years may start to disappear.

Evolution of a Mole

Moles are growths on your skin that are usually black or brown, but can be a lighter tan. They usually appear in childhood anywhere on your body, either alone or in groups. By the time you reach your mid-20s it's common to have 10 to 40 moles.4 Moles happen when cells that provide color to your skin melanocytes grow in clumps together instead of spreading throughout your skin. After being exposed to the sun or during hormonal changes, such as your teen years or pregnancy, moles may darken in color.

Not all moles are created equally. The common mole is 5 to 6 mm in diameter...

Prophylactic HPV Vaccines: Current Knowledge of Impact on Gynecological Premalignancies "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Authors: Diane M. Harper and Karen B. Williams

Abstract: Approaches for cervical cancer prevention are changing. Screening still remains the most effective method for cervical cancer prevention. Guidelines are moving to an older group of women to be screened less frequently with combinations of technologies that include biomarkers and cytology. HPV vaccination is an appropriate option for this older group of women as well, should the woman not wish to make her decision about vaccination until 21 years of age, the age of screening. Parents making decisions about HPV vaccination for their young adolescent daughters need to be fully informed that only continued screening prevents cervical cancer. HPV vaccination reduces the possibility of their daughter having an abnormal Pap test by 10% if the vaccines have not waned by the time the young adolescent becomes sexually active. HPV vaccine efficacy must last at least 15 years to contribute to the prevention of cervical cancers. At this time, protection against cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2/3 (CIN 2/3) is 5 years for Gardasil and 8.4 years for Cervarix. The value of the current protection HPV vaccines offer will be viewed differently by different women. Physicians ethical duties are to provide full explanation of the risks and benefits of adding HPV vaccination to the ongoing screening programs, and to support women in their personal choice for cervical cancer prevention.

California Christian Homeschool Family Torn Apart as Children are Medically Kidnapped, Forced into Public School, and Mother is Forced out of Family Home "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Erin This is the shot from the Whidbey Island Bridge ( Point Deception) This is about an hour before he spiked the temp

When the Daugherty family decided to visit Seattle, Washington, for a 4 day whale watching trip to celebrate their sons 10th birthday, they had no idea that a trip to the emergency room would turn into a nightmare that would rip their family apart.

They were more than a thousand miles from home and from their own doctors, when chronically ill Zachary began running a fever and showing signs of an infection.

When his parents took him to the emergency room at Seattle Childrens Hospital, they blindly walked into a web of controversy involving some of the most notorious Child Abuse Specialist doctors in the country, with connections to Medical Kidnap stories we have published spanning from Boston to Arizona, California, and Washington.

California parents Kevin and Erin Daugherty learned that the conflict between Boston area doctors involved with the notorious Justina Pelletier case didnt stay in Boston. It has spread all the way from the East Coast to the West Coast of America. Their son Zachary has been caught in the crossfire of differing philosophies of different doctors.

There is a dangerous trend occurring today involving parents with children with multiple medical issues (medically complex) or children with mysterious conditions that doctors havent figured out how to diagnose yet.

While the concerned parents often have to search for doctors with the expertise to help their children, that very concern is used to accuse them of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy or Factious Disorder, or the more common term now used in child social services Medical Child Abuse a general all-purpose term used by doctors in the relatively new field of Child Abuse Specialists when parents dare to disagree with them.

Shikonin inhibits cell growth and induces apoptosis in different types of breast cancer cells. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  Sci Rep. 2018 Feb 8 ;8(1):2672. Epub 2018 Feb 8. PMID: 29422643 Abstract Title:  RNA-seq transcriptome analysis of breast cancer cell lines under shikonin treatment. Abstract:  Shikonin is a naphthoquinone isolated from the dried root of Lithospermum erythrorhizon, an herb used in Chinese medicine. Although several studies have indicated that shikonin exhibits antitumor activity in breast cancer, the mechanism of action remains unclear. In the present study, we performed transcriptome analysis using RNA-seq and explored the mechanism of action of shikonin in regulating the growth of different types of breast cancer cells. The ICof shikonin on MCF-7, SKBR-3 and MDA-MB-231 cells were 10.3, 15.0, 15.0 respectively. Our results also demonstrated that shikonin arrests the progression of cell cycle and induces apoptosis in MDA-MB-231 cells. Using RNA-seq transcriptome analysis, we found 38 common genes that significantly express in different types of breast cancer cells under shikonin treatment. In particular, our results indicated that shikonin induces the expression of dual specificity phosphatase (DUSP)-1 and DUSP2 in both RNA and protein levels. In addition, shikonin also inhibits the phosphorylation of JNK and p38, the downstream signaling molecules of DUSP1 and DUSP2. Therefore, our results suggest that shikonin induces the expression of DUSP1 and DUSP2 which consequently switches off JNK and p38 MAPK pathways and causes cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in breast cancer cells.

Meet the Leadership: Jen Valencia, ICAN of Colorado Springs "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

ICAN is excited to announce Jen Valencia as our newest Chapter Leader!

I am most excited to help families know and understand they have options; that their birth choices belong to them. I am excited to be able to offer them a place for recovery, support, education, and most of all a voice. ~ Jen Valencia, ICAN of Colorado Springs

Please introduce yourself to ICAN:

I have a Bachelor of Science in Applied Human Behavior from Northern Arizona University, with a focus on childbirth as a life stage and the family unit. I am passionate about family wellness, and strive to build confidence, and provide education, and relational support as a doula, childbirth educator, and owner of Metropolitan Birth Support, a doula agency serving Colorado Springs and Denver. I teach Birth Boot Camp, and I am an Instructor Trainer. I love working with other professionals, knowing that each one I train will go on to benefit a great number of families. I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, and mountaineering. I love to travel and seek adventure in places that challenge me. I have a beautifully chaotic household with 4 chirping birds, 3 rambunctious children, 2 playful dogs, 1 lively rabbit, and an eccentrically introverted husband!

What led you to join ICAN?

When my first birth ended in a cesarean I heard the word VBAC, but I had no idea how challenging that would be to obtain. I had thought it was just like any other birth. Five years later, when navigating birth politics and being turned down by so many places for my VBAC baby, I learned of the struggle. I did not have an ICAN chapter near me and longed for support, information, camaraderie, anything. Having an ICAN would have made a huge difference to that experience. I still had my VBAC, but the path to it felt isolating. When I moved t...

10 Ways Your Mum Might Ruin Your Pregnancy "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

10 Ways Your Mum Will Ruin Your Pregnancy

Youre carrying her grandchild, so its safe to say your mum will take an active interest in your pregnancy. She will make sure you eat enough fruit and vegetables, and worry about your fibre intake. Therell be endless stories, as she regales you with memories from her own pregnancy. But shell also listen to your worries, take you shopping for baby stuff and make sure you feel pampered and loved during your pregnancy. In short, shell do all the things you will also do for your kids one day, when theyre about to become parents. Just like her, youll want to hold their hand every step of the way. And thats lovely, really lovely. Apart from when its not.

10 Ways Your Mum Might Ruin Your Pregnancy

Sometimes, although you might not want to say it out loud, your mothers help feels more like a hindrance. There are days you wish she lived a little further away (in a nice way) or she had something else to distract her. Sometimes, you might even wish she were just a little bit less her. For example:

#1: Shell Keep Talking About Her Haemorrhoids

Whatever your mums worst pregnancy symptom was, youre going to hear a lot about it over the next few months. Shell sift through her memories for all the horror stories of pregnancy just when you need a positive coach to help you through it. If she had haemorrhoids, then buckle up, because shes not going to spare you any of the gory details. And she wont wait until you mention them. Nope, shell be talking about them before youve finished making your pregnancy announcement. Just wait till you get piles, she will say, knowingly.

#2: ... In Public

And dont expect her to keep those TMI conversations private. Shell recount the details of her haemorrhoids, and predict what yours will be like, in front of anyone who will listen. You should expect your partner to hear way, way too many intimate details about your mums pregnancy during the next few months. And so will any waiters unfortunate enough to be serving your table. And so will well, anyone in earshot really. In fact, you should probably avoid inviting her to...

Antibiotics During Pregnancy Increase Infection Risk For Babies "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Antibiotics During Pregnancy Increase Infection Risk For Babies

In media reports this week, new research suggests children whose mothers took antibiotics during pregnancy have an increased risk of being hospitalised for serious infections. The study, published this week in the International Journal of Epidemiology, looked at data from over 770,000 Danish children born between 1995 and 2009.

Antibiotics During Pregnancy Increase Infection Risk For Babies

The risk of infection increased with the number of doses, and with antibiotics being prescribed later in pregnancy. There was no difference in risk between different types of infection whether they were viral, gastrointestinal, lower/upper respiratory tract, bacterial, genito-urinary, skin, or soft tissue.

What Do Antibiotics Do?

Antibiotics have been a boon to modern medicine. They are used against bacterial, not viral, infections, and different types of antibiotics target specific types of bacteria. Although antibiotics can be useful to combat serious infections, they can affect the number and types of healthy bacteria in our gut (microbiome). Changes in the gut microbiome can be extreme, depending on the type of antibiotic prescribed and the length of the course. It takes time to restore healthy gut flora, and it can also be problematic. When it isnt clear which good bacteria have been affected, it can be difficult to restore the balance.

How Does This Affect Pregnancy?

During pregnancy, your baby is protected against infection by the amniotic sac and fluid, and the plug of mucus within the cervix. Until recently, it was believed babies were born with no bacteria at all, and they acquired their microbiome through vaginal birth, skin to s...

Ode to the bin chicken "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

The ancient Egyptians venerated the ibis. Followers of ibis cults would visit temples and purchase mummified ibises for use in votive offerings. The ibis was a sacred bird associated with creation and fertility and knowledge and learning. The ibis cults became so wildly popular that priests began breeding and rearing the birds onsite, specially for mummification.

5 Signs of Evolution You Can Find On Your Own Body "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

While 42% of the American population does not believe in evolution, our bodies tend to tell a very different story. The world around us is stricken with proof to Darwins theory and we all share similar proof through vestigial organs that we have inherited from our ancestors.

Vestigial organs or structures are body parts that over time have reduced or lost their original purpose. They can be discovered in all animals and humans. Have you ever had your wisdom teeth or appendix removed?

Here are 5 ways that your body bares proof to evolution:

The Nictitating Membrane

The third eyelid is a transparent or translucent membrane that protects and moisten the eye without losing visibility. It is common in amphibians, reptiles, and birds. Among primates, it is only functional in lemurs and lorises.

In humans, the plica semilunaris is a remnant of the nictitating membrane. Obviously, we can not move it but still has some lacrimal drainage function and helps in the eye movement.

 The Tailbone

If you touch your spine till the end, you will reach the coccyx or tailbone. It is three to five fused vertebrae, vestige of the tail of our primate ancestors. In fact, when we were in the womb, in the early stages of embryo development a 10-12 tail vertebrae formation is observed.

Subsequently, it is reabsorbed, but not in all cases: it has been reported 40 newborns with a tail.

Wisdom Teeth

35% of people do not have wisdom teeth or third molar. In the rest, its appearance is usually painful and removal is necessary.

Our hominin ancestors had them, much bigger than ours. A recent research explains that when a tooth develops, emits signals that determine the size of the neighboring teeth. Reducing the mandible dentition and the other along evolution has resulted in reduced molars (and eventually the disappearance of the third).

The Third Nipple (Polythelia)

It is estimated that up to 5% of the world population has more than two nipples. These extra nipples can be presented in different ways so...
