Why Are So Many Pregnant Mothers Dying in D.C.?
"Maternity Desert," a new documentary from The Atlantic, follows Amber Pierre, a 24-year-old African-American woman living in southeast D.C. Pierre is pregnant with her second child. After two previous miscarriages, she is navigating a high-risk pregnancy that, combined with her Medicaid coverage, requires she visit a hospital every two weeks to be seen by an Ob-Gyn. Pierre lives in Anacostia River, the area of D.C. most affected by the closures. In these neighborhoods, the population is 93 percent black and 32 percent below the poverty line. Across the U.S., black mothers are three times more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications than white mothers. In the nation’s capital, where the maternal mortality rate is already twice as high as the national average, two recent hospital closures have the potential to make this disparity much worse.

The US medical system is still haunted by slavery
Black women's history matters in medicine. Read ProPublica's feature piece on how the US is the most dangerous industrialized country in which to give birth, and racial disparities in maternal mortality make it even worse for women of color: https://www.propublica.org/article/nothing-protects-black-women-from-dying-in-pregnancy-and-childbirth And they're seeking your help in understanding the problem. If you nearly died during pregnancy or know someone who died due to childbirth related causes, check out this page for more information: http://propub.li/2Ae5RMi At 0:54, a previous version of this chart mistakenly said "deaths per 1,000 live births," but it is "100,000" instead. The error has been fixed. UPDATE: On Tuesday, April 17, 2018 — New York removed the statue of J.

Medical Minute- Pregnancy
A child's health starts before birth. A healthy pregnancy is important for the overall health and wellness of the mother and child. Women who are pregnant, are trying, or may become pregnant should establish prenatal care with a trusted doctor. Establishing early prenatal care improves the chances of a health pregnancy, and reduces the risk of complications. It can also help women take the steps to a safe and health pregnancy prior to conception. Healthy practices like prenatal vitamins, a balanced diet, and regular exercise are important to incorporate into daily routines. Take the time to speak to your doctor about any health concerns and review any current medications you are taking. Your doctor may advise modifications while pregnant. Community Health Plan of Washington members can receive rewards for getting at least 2 prenatal check ups during their pregnancy but enrolling in the Children First program. Community Health Plan of Washington, taking care of your health for life.

Why Rural Health Care Is Failing New Moms
A lack of maternity services and specialists in rural America is putting pregnant women at risk. In Louisville, Ga., certified nurse midwife Linda Randolph is the only medical professional providing basic prenatal care within a 60-mile radius, two days a week at the small local hospital.

Improving Coverage & Care for Pregnant & Postpartum Women
Women and families have experienced tremendous health coverage gains since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, yet pregnant women still face a complex landscape when it comes to insurance. Pregnancy may trigger overlaps in eligibility for private and public insurance programs, causing women to “churn," or move between plans. Access to insurance is critical during pregnancy – uninsured women access fewer prenatal care services and experience more adverse birth outcomes, including preterm birth and low birth weight. Co-presented by the Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP) and the National Institute for Health Care Management Foundation (NIHCM), with support from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, this webinar is designed to help state-level public health and MCH professionals understand ways to help women and families navigate their health insurance options to improve women’s overall health and birth outcomes. Speakers included: Dania Palanker, National Women's Law Center; Karen Shea, Anthem, Inc.; and Todd Slettvet, Washington State Health Care Authority. Broadcast Date: October 26, 2015 For more information, please contact Emily Eckert at eeckert@amchp.org.

Washington State Department of Health - Sneeze
Vaccination is the best protection against the seasonal flu. Everyone can benefit from a flu shot; however, it's crucial for many people at high risk for complications. This includes children and young adults, pregnant women, and anyone with a chronic medical condition. Washing your hands, coughing and sneezing into your sleeve, and staying home when you're sick are also important ways to stay healthy this flu season.

10 Curious Things That Have a Logical Explanation
There are around 5.5 billion Google searches done per day. In 2012, this number was 2 times lower. People are constantly learning new things and are working on making their outlook broader. But sometimes, even the most ordinary questions can confuse us: for example, why is low-quality journalism called “yellow” and how did Professor Dumbledore manage to do magic without his wand? Why do tears taste salty? Why do we get good ideas in the shower? Humans can take a lot of things at face value, but we are also wired to discover the meaning behind things. Even the most random and ordinary questions can have truly intriguing answers! We at Bright Side decided to find answers to questions like this. As it turns out, even the strangest things can be explained. TIMESTAMPS: Why do we get “butterflies” in our stomach? 0:52 How can a pregnant woman conceive again during pregnancy? 2:04 Why do we sometimes get amazing ideas in the shower? 3:13 Why are tears salty? 4:36 Why is autocorrect called T9? 5:29 Why do wizards need a wand to do magic? 6:10 Why is low-quality journalism called “yellow”? 6:52 Why do old photos show people with their hands on each other’s shoulders? 7:59 Why do iPhone pictures show the time 9:41? 8:39 Why are there no toilet plungers in many American homes? 9:14 #strangefacts #curiousthings #yellowpress Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - When your body feels stress, whether it’s positive or negative, the limbic brain activates the vagus nerve, which runs from your brain to your gut. It’s because of this direct link that you feel the “butterflies” in your stomach. - It’s supposed to be something that doesn’t happen, but getting pregnant while already pregnant can happen. This can happen if there’s not one but 2 eggs in the female body. The first is fertilized during sex; the second is fertilized at a later date. - When you’re showering, you are going through a monotonous task. According to R. Keith Sawyer, a Washington University psychologist, taking your mind off the problem might be just what you need to find a solution. - Tears are made of water and salt because your body is made up of about 60% water. 0.4% of your body is salt. The amount of salt in your tears depends on the state of your body and the reason why you’re crying. - The name T9 meant “Text on 9 keys” because for many non-smartphones, 9 keys were all you could work with. - The great wizards in the world of Harry Potter, such as Albus Dumbledore, could sometimes do magic without their wands because they can handle a more sophisticated approach. - In 1895, American artist Richard Outcault posted a series of frivolous pictures in The World. Among them was a picture of a child wearing a yellow shirt that said funny things. American readers loved the pictures, and the boy was called “The Yellow Kid.” - Unlike today, it took between several minutes and an hour. People had to remain absolutely still during this time to make sure the photo would look good. - On Tuesday, January 9, 2007, Steve Jobs was on the stage of the Macworld Conference & Expo talking about the new technologies of the future. He said that he’d been looking forward to that day, and at 9:41, he presented the iPhone. - Inside US bathrooms, it may be hard to find toilet plungers. The drain system is way more powerful in the US than in many other countries. They use washdown toilets, which use a good amount of water. So whatever goes into the toilet gets flushed down the drain with the water.

Delta Flight Makes Emergency Landing For Woman In Labor
An expectant mother onboard a Delta airlines flight from Amsterdam to Atlanta recently went into labor on the plane. The aircraft, which was carrying 230 passengers and crew, was forced to make an emergency landing in Ireland. For women who are in the final months of pregnancy, making travel plans is a gamble. An expectant mother onboard a Delta airlines flight from Amsterdam to Atlanta recently went into labor on the plane. The aircraft, which was carrying 230 passengers and crew, was forced to make an emergency landing in Ireland. It had been flying over Blackpool, England when airline staffers declared a medical emergency. The crew feared the woman would give birth mid-flight, as her contractions were getting ‘closer’ during the journey. Right before the plane touched ground, her contractions were about a minute apart. The plane landed safely at Shannon Airport, where paramedics were waiting to check her over. After that, she was transported to a local university hospital by ambulance. The woman, who was almost full term, gave birth shortly after she arrived at the facility. Both mom and baby are said to be doing fine. Many airlines require a doctor’s note to allow pregnant woman within four weeks of their due date to travel. Delta does not need any medical certification for them to fly. However, the airline does advise expectant moms talk to their doctors before hopping on a plane.

Justices weigh bias claim of pregnant UPS driver
YOUR DESCRIPTION HAS REACHED THE LIMIT OF CHARACTERS ALLOWED AND WAS CUT. WASHINGTON (AP) -- Two of the three women on the Supreme Court vigorously questioned a UPS lawyer Wednesday over the company's refusal to give lighter duty to a pregnant worker, a closely watched case with potentially broad impact for female workers and their employers. Questions from several justices during arguments suggested the court could be searching for a middle ground in the dispute between United Parcel Service and former driver Peggy Young. UPS declined to give the woman temporary light-duty work so she could avoid lifting heavy packages after she became pregnant in 2006. Young was in the courtroom Wednesday to hear the justices talk about employers' responsibilities under the 36-year-old Pregnancy Discrimination Act. With some of their male colleagues unusually quiet, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan repeatedly pressed UPS lawyer Caitlin Halligan over the Atlanta-based package delivery company's refusal to find a temporary assignment for Young. The anti-discrimination law "was supposed to be about removing stereotypes of pregnant women as marginal workers. It was supposed to be about ensuring that they wouldn't be unfairly excluded from the workplace. And what you are saying is that there's a policy that accommodates some workers but puts all pregnant women on one side of the line," Kagan said. Defending the company's actions, Halligan said UPS did not provide light-duty work to any employees unless they were injured on the job, had a condition that was covered by the Americans With Disabilities Act or lost their federal certificate to drive a commercial vehicle. Ginsburg challenged Halligan to come up with an example of someone who asked for lighter duty but didn't get it, other than pregnant women. "Is there an employee who asked for a dispensation because of a medical condition that restricted her ability to lift, to any single employee?" Ginsburg asked. Halligan replied, "There's not a name provided in the record because one was not elicited by (Young) whose burden it was." Young's dispute with UPS arose after she gave her supervisor a doctor's note recommending that she not lift packages heavier than 20 pounds. Young said she dealt almost exclusively with overnight letters, but UPS said its drivers must be able to lift packages weighing up to 70 pounds. Young left the company in 2009. UPS has since changed its policy and says it will voluntarily offer pregnant women light duty starting in January. Halligan noted that nine states now have laws that require an accommodation for pregnant workers, and she urged the justices to let elected lawmakers make these kinds of policy decisions, rather than federal judges. "I want to point out that this is an area where the democratic process is working as it should," Halligan said. The states are: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey and West Virginia. More than 120 congressional Democrats are backing legislation that would change federal law to make explicit the requirement to accommodate pregnant women. Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey said the bill is modeled after the landmark Americans With Disabilities Act. "It would make sure that pregnant workers have the same measure of protection," Casey said before the start of a rally outside the court in support of Young. The Obama administration and an unusual array of liberal and conservative interest groups are supporting Young, who lives with her 7-year-old daughter, Triniti, in Lorton, Virginia. In court on Wednesday, Samuel Bagenstos, Young's lawyer, ran into early trouble from Justice Anthony Kennedy. "You make it sound%

US: Poor Medical Care Linked to Deaths in Immigration Detention
(Washington, DC, June 20, 2018) – US government records summarizing investigations of the deaths of 15 people in immigration detention support a conclusion that poor medical care contributed to at least eight of the deaths, a group of research and advocacy organizations said in a report released today. More people died in fiscal year 2017 in immigration detention than any time since 2009. Human Rights Watch analyzed, with the help of independent medical experts, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) death reviews from late-2015 to mid-2017 and finds evidence in nearly all of them of substandard and dangerous medical care practices including unreasonable delays in accessing care, botched emergency responses and poor-quality practitioner care. One of the 15 cases involved the suicide of a person with psychosocial disabilities who was inappropriately placed in isolation.

Zika Outbreak: CDC Advises Pregnant Women To Avoid Travel To Miami-Dade County
While the concerns over the Zika virus have mainly focused on the health of pregnant women and their babies, new research from the journal Cell Stem Cell is finding evidence that suggests adult brain cells critical to learning and memory may be susceptible to the virus, according to the Washington Post. In a developing fetus the virus attacks neural progenitor cells which is what an early stage brain is filled with which then disrupts brain growth. These same cells are present in adults only far less but still significant to learning and memory. The researchers found the cells in adult brains are equally as vulnerable to the virus.

How Trans Kids And Their Parents Decide When To Start Medical Transition | VICE on HBO
As the debate continues over which bathroom transgender people should use, a more complex question is emerging about how early the medical transition begins for trans kids. Families and doctors are rewriting the rules as they decide when and how to start medical intervention before transgender youth hit puberty. About 1.7 percent of American youth identify as transgender, and that estimate is conservative since the population is likely underreporting. “I feel comfortable saying that any survey of LGBT identity likely underestimates the full population because it only accounts for one part of sexual and gender minority status, ‘identity’,” said Bianca Wilson of the Williams Institute, a national think tank at the UCLA School of Law that advances sexual orientation and gender identity law. In addition to fighting for acceptance, transgender children and their families are faced with medical questions that could be life-changing. These decisions are even harder for those young trans and gender nonconforming people who don’t have family support. Estimates show that about 40 percent of homeless youth identify as LGBT. VICE News explores the emotionally charged and rapidly evolving issues faced by trans youth and their parents in a time of drastic political and societal change.

OBGYN Travels to Provide Care in Wash. Co.
YOUR DESCRIPTION HAS REACHED THE LIMIT OF CHARACTERS ALLOWED AND WAS CUT. WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ala. (WPMI) - There is relief for pregnant moms in Washington County. In February we learned there is no full time practicing OBGYN in the county. Many expectant mothers traveled more than 60 miles to see a doctor and to deliver their babies. Following Local 15's Modupe Idowu story, a local university came to the rescue. The University of South Alabama's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology has partnered with Washington County Hospital to provide care to pregnant women. Those who benefit from it the most are those with high risk pregnancies. USA Professor and Gynecologist Dr. Frankie Bodie came from Mobile to work in Chatom to see expecting moms of Washington County. "I really like him," said high risk pregnancy patient Melanie Garcia, "He is concerned about me." Garcia lives in Chatom. She is expecting her second child, but this pregnancy is different. Garcia said, "Well I had a stroke at 25, and I didn't think I would be able to get pregnant again but I have." Garcia‚„s pregnancy is considered high risk. This is her third visit with Dr. Bodie and the clinic is only three miles from home. ‚“It's a lot easier to see a doctor close by my home in case something goes wrong,‚ said Garcia. Nearly a quarter of the county‚„s population does not receive the proper prenatal care according to the Department of Health. There are no full time practicing OBGYN‚„s in the county which has forced a lot of pregnant women to travel more than an hour and half to the Port City for care. The University of South Alabama‚„s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology has agreed to provide a clinic once a month in Chatom and once a month in Clarke County‚„s Jackson, Alabama to help. ‚“Certainly if you've approached the patient who has a complication that justifies limiting activity, it really makes no sense to have them travel for an hour and a half in a car,‚ said Dr. Bodie. Douglas Tanner runs Washington County Hospital. It is the sole facility for the county. ‚“We don't do OBGYN at Washington County Hospital, but as I was telling you earlier statistics shows that over half of the babies born to women that are residents of Washington County fall into a high risk category which is a significant health issue,‚ said Tanner. Tanner said the more visits for a high risk pregnancy patient, the less chance they have of having a complicated delivery. This rings true for those patients suffering from Placenta Previa. It is a condition where the afterbirth covers the opening of the uterus. ‚“The contractions can cause the afterbirth to break loose from the uterus and can cause devastating bleeding to both the infant and the mother.
