An Exhaustive List of All the References We Could Find in Mother!

Warning: spoilers for the movie mother! follow. Eliza: So the movie mother! was…something else. Eliana: I am shook. Eliza: I am…confused? Infuriated? Discombobulated? Eliana: I’m coping by Googling as many references as possible: there’s the Genesis story, and I kept thinking about The Giving Tree, which is already depressing for a kids’ book. But this movie takes things to a whole new, bloody level. Eliza: Yeah, and it was nearly impossible to avoid chatter in the ether that the whole thing is a warning about our present path to destroying the environment. Eliana: Yes, the director, Darren Aronofsky, has been very clear that our big takeaway should be “We are all doomed — unless we stop effing up the Earth.” Eliza: After two viewings, though, I’m struggling to keep the metaphors straight. Is Jennifer Lawrence the Virgin Mary, or Mother Earth, or just a girl standing in front of a boy asking him not to be a monstrous piece of sh-t to her all the time? Eliana: Yes and yes. And also a muse. I cannot shake the feeling that, intentionally or not, this movie is all about the casualties of fame culture. Lawrence has been picked apart for years, and is literally picked apart in this movie. And Aronofsky is both the writer and her real-life beau… Eliza: Perhaps a deep, deep, deep dive will allow us to rest easier at night? Eliana: Let’s do it! Note: We refer to the characters as they are listed in the credits: Lawr...

For more than a year, Shannon injected herself hundreds of times. They tried several rounds of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Nothing worked. “You would get really hopeful and optimistic, then it would crash. The results came back negative every time,” Shawn told WBZ-TV.

Infertility treatment is always elective, which is why I try to offer as many treatment options as possible to patients, so they can pick and choose which the right one is for themselves .For example, patients with unexplained infertility can choose to do either IUI or IVF. Now, when I offer the patient a choice, they get very confused , because they don't know what they should do . They want a doctor who will make the decision for them.While I'm happy to offer guidance, I don't want to be paternalistic , and I remind them that I'm not a mind reader – I don’t know what your personal preferences are.The tru...

Many infertile patients get major heartburn when they realize that they aren't able to afford test tube baby treatments because they are so expensive.

This includes: consultations, blood tests, ultrasound scans, egg collection, and embryo transfer.However, the heart of the IVF treatment is the IVF laboratory, and the patient doesn ’t get to see what goes on behind the scenes in ...

Recurrent pregnancy loss ( repeated miscarriages or habitual abortions) is one of the most frustrating problems in medicine. It is hard for patients , because getting pregnant , and then losing the baby again and again is traumatic. It's bad for doctors, because patients have so many questions , and we don't have any answers ! The truth is that our tests are not very good, and there is little we can do to make n accurate a diagnosis. This is why, in about 80% of patients with recurrent pregnancy loss , inspite of extensive testing, we will not be able to find an underlying cause.Based on experience over many years, the one...

Conclusion: To address the many challenges posed by EDCs, we argue that Africans should take the lead in prioritization and evaluation of environmental hazards, including EDCs. We recommend the institution of education and training programs for chemical users, adoption of the precautionary principle, establishment of biomonitoring programs, and funding of community-based epidemiology and wildlife research programs led and funded by African institutes and private companies. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1774 Received: 16 February 2017 Revised: 22 May 2017 Accepted: 24 May 2017 Published: 22 August 2017 Address correspond...

This is a guest post from Dr. Sai, Chief Embryologist, Malpani Infertility Clinic Pvt. Ltd.The biggest dilemma in IVF today is whether to transfer on day 2 or day 5, when we have only one embryo in the incubator.When we have lots of embryos, the decision is very easy. We can sit back, culture the embryos beyond day 2/day 3, let the embryos compete and select the best ones for Embryo Transfer on day 5.It keeps everyone happy - the patient, the doctor and the embryologist - since state of the art care has been provided.On the contrary , when we do the transfer on day 3, we have a hard time selecting the best embryos for tran...

Everyone understands that healthy eggs and sperm are required to conceive, right? So, it shouldn’t be a surprise when couples have trouble starting a family that male fertility plays a role – more often than most people realize. In fact, male factor infertility is the primary medical issue in about 25% of infertility cases and a contributing factor another 25% of the time. For years, it has often been assumed that problems getting pregnant were all about the female half of the couple. Thanks to extensive media coverage of research, sperm issues and the role of male infertility are now mainstream topics. Still,...
