Love, Listen and Learn: Grandmothers' Experiences of Grief Following Their Child's Pregnancy Loss.

CONCLUSIONS: Early access to information and guidance, ongoing peer support with flexible delivery options, and involvement in memory making activities could reduce ambiguity and disenfranchisement. Increasing community education and participation in raising awareness was identified as a way for grandparents to honour their loss and support others. Further research could explore grandfathers' experiences, the longer-term outcomes for grandparents and families, and the impact of support strategies.

Since the introduction of the Hostile Environment, hospitals have had to charge undocumented migrants living in the UK for non-emergency medical care. This includes pregnant women. Bills of £7,000 for the basic maternity package (an uncomplicated pregnancy and delivery) are the norm. Often they are much higher. One of the more shocking cases Doctors of the World supported was a woman sent a bill of £9,600 soon after her 22 week miscarriage. A pregnancy is a great undertaking for all women. But time and time again we see pregnant women at the clinic who delay accessing or avoid visiting hospitals altogether for...

Conclusion.Planned pregnancy might be pragmatic in female patients with CML on TKIs. Achieving deep molecular response and, importantly, MMR duration ≥3.5 years were significantly associated with maintaining MMR during pregnancy.Implications for Practice.Female patients with chronic myeloid leukemia on tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) wishing to conceive are currently advised to discontinue TKIs before conception. However, the ideal degree and duration of response before stopping TKI, in addition to whether there will be any adverse effect caused by a short exposure of TKI, is unknown. Data of 17 female patients, who a...

m Ekmekcioglu Birth related complications and comorbidities are highly associated with a poor nutritional status of pregnant women, whereas iron and iodine are among especially important trace elements for healthy maternal and fetal outcomes. The study compares the status of iron, iodine, and related functional parameters in pregnant and non-pregnant women from a developing country and associates the data with pregnancy complications. The concentrations of ferritin, hemoglobin (Hb), total triiodothyronine (TT3), total thyroxine (TT4), and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) were determined in the blood serum of 80 pregna...

ConclusionsThe present drug-free IVA approach may be suitable for POR patients with DOR, as it increased the number of antral follicles. The procedure also eliminated the need for 2-day incubation with drugs and required only one surgery. This approach could allow the retrieval of more oocytes in middle-aged women to achieve higher pregnancy rates and deserves proper evaluation in future randomized controlled trials.
