The language guide midwives should use
The guide, published in the British Medical Journal, also stresses that midwives and obstetricians should never address the pregnant woman as a 'she' when they are discussing the situation at hand.
ConclusionsThere was no evidence that neither short-term nor long-term exposure to meteorological parameters or air pollen counts were associated with self-reported peripartum depressive symptoms in Uppsala, Sweden.

Conclusions Although iodine intakes were excessive and Tg concentrations were elevated, there was little impact on thyroid function. Chronic excess iodine intakes thus appear to be well-tolerated by women, infants and children. However, such high iodine intakes are unnecessary and should be avoided. Careful evaluation of contributions from both iodized salt and groundwater iodine is recommended before any review of iodization policy is considered.

ConclusionsPre-existing diabetes in early pregnancy displays a distinctive F2-isoprostanes profile when compared to other pathologies of pregnancy, such as preeclampsia, as previously assessed in the same cohort.
Conclusion: The pooled prevalence of perinatal depression in Ethiopia is far above most developed as well as developing countries. Hence, to realize the sustainable development goals (SDGs) outlined by united nation, much attention should be given to improve maternal mental health through reduction of identified modifiable factors. Maternal health programs, polices, and activities should incorporate maternal mental health as a core component. PMID: 30018821 [PubMed]
ConclusionsAge of the mother, outcome of the first pregnancy, and treatment factors affect the length of the interpregnancy interval. Because short IPI has been associated with poor outcomes, women who are at risk for short IPI should be counseled about these outcome risks.
ConclusionsAutomated TLI combined with PGS is a useful prognostic tool to identify euploid embryos with the highest potential for implantation and pregnancy. Further, these results provide evidence that a healthy pregnancy does not only depend upon normal chromosomal status.
AbstractFor the development of uterine receptivity, many morphological and molecular changes occur in the apical surface of luminal uterine epithelial cells (UECs) including an increase in vesicular activity. Vesicular movements for exocytosis and endocytosis are dependent on microtubules; however, changes in microtubules in UECs during early pregnancy have received little attention. β-tubulin, one of the main component of microtubules, is distributed throughout the cytoplasm of UECs on day 1 (non-receptive) of pregnancy in the rat. On day 5.5, β-tubulin is concentrated above the nuclei and by day 6 (receptive), ...
