"Talk to me, not at me": obese women's experiences of birth and their encounter with birth attendants-a qualitative study.
Conclusion: For the women in our study, being obese meant experiencing challenges as well as opportunities during childbirth and in their encounter with birth attendants. Experiences of preconceptions, alienation, a focus on risk and a loss of autonomy in encounters with birth attendants were found to negatively impact the birthing process. The women desired affirmative and inclusive encounters; these kinds of encounters may improve the birth experiences of obese women.

CONCLUSIONS: Nurses have a variety of experiences regarding maternal postpartum bonding; however, the clinical reality of NICUs limits support for bonding formation. Although nurses face challenges (e.g., institutional policies, insufficient resources, training) when supporting maternal postpartum bonding, they act as the bridge between mothers and infants, becoming advocates for NICU families and taking care of their growth and developmental needs as caregivers.

Participant experiences of change in mindfulness-based stress reduction for anxiety disorders.
CONCLUSION: Participants of MBSR both describe mindfulness as a tool to "fix" anxiety and as bringing about more fundamental change towards acceptance of their anxiety. The complexity of reported change corresponds with better handling of areas representing known transdiagnostic features of anxiety disorder, such as dysfunctional cognitive processes (including attentional biases), emotional dysregulation, avoidance behaviours, and maladaptive self-relatedness. This supports MBSR as a transdiagnostic approach to the treatment of anxiety disorders. PMID: 32543979 [PubMed - in process] (Source: International Jou...
