Harlequin Medical Romance April 2019 - Box Set 1 of 2 pT that she hardly intervie I m now on my second reading of this book It s so jamacked with enlightening facts and information that every expecting couple should know that I felt I should read it again just so I can retain it all a bit betterFirst let me address the alcohol issue since there s been a lot of backlash against this book online and on talk radio for suggesting that drinking a bit of alcohol during Landslide: The Unmaking of the President, 1984-1988 pregnancy is okay It is my opinion that the anti FASD Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder crusaders out there in comments sections of articles discussing this book have not read the book nor have they read the studies Oster cites in her discussion of the topic Oster does NOT say that heavy or binge drinking duringregnancy is okay The studies she cites clearly show that heavybinge drinking is detrimental to fetal health Those same studies however demonstrate Metropolis pretty clearly that light drinking up to 2 drinks PER WEEK not in the same day in the first trimester up to 4 drinks PER WEEK again not in the same day in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters has no effect on either fetal development or on intelligence of the child even up to age 14 There s a world of difference between light drinking as defined here and heavy or binge drinking and the most strident of Oster s critics seem not to grasp that difference Osterresents the studies the hard scientific data that backs up what she is saying This is not her opinion it s scientific evidence Intelligent Whom the Lord Loveth: The Journey of Discipleship pregnant women can take that information androcess it themselves some women may decide that they d rather not drink any alcohol during their regnancy while others may decide that an occasional drink with dinner is fine The oint is that women who choose the second option should feel vindicated by the fact that all medical evidence Disrupted: Ludicrous Misadventures into the Tech Start-Up Bubble points to their choice being safe for their babiesThe alcohol discussion however is just oneart of one chapter of the book The rest of the book looks at everything you could ossibly be concerned about with a regnancy Is deli meat okay Possibly not What about sushi Yes Hot yoga Depends on how hot it is Cleaning the cat litter box Fine Gardening Not fine All of the restrictions that Jubal's Wish pregnant women are told they must adhere to Oster evaluates by going to the original scientific studies Some restrictions are shown to be silly when viewed in light of the actual evidence Others are affirmed and you are given therecise reasons why the restriction exists But you don t have to take Oster s word for it for all of the conclusions Oster comes to you can reach your own conclusions by simply going to the immensely valuable endnote section of the book and looking up the same studies she used to write the book In addition she combines information into very helpful graphs that express in one icture a wealth of knowledge One example is a graph of where different types of fish fall on the scale of mercury content bad for Baby s I versus Omega 3 content good for baby s I This would be great to have in your urse when you re out to dinner and thinking about a fish entr e so that you re not trying to look up this info on your smartphone being rude to your dining companions Additionally Oster covers topics such as trying to conceive nausea what amount is normal what treatments there are both rescription and non genetic screening and amniocentesisCVS risk of chromosomal abnormalities and detection rates of various rocedures designed to find them miscarriage rates broken down by age of the mother weight gain and exercise during Philadelphia: A Photographic Tour (Highsmith, Carol M., Photographic Tour,) pregnancy induced labor epidurals and If you want to know the facts behind the recommendations your doctor has given you this is the book for you You ll have the actual data from the original studies along with Oster s explanation of the statistics you need to know to make the best decisions for youersonally I strongly recommend this book I m astounded that an economist who is not a newborn health care rofessional decided that being regnant reading an obstetrics and reviewing some studies makes her ualified to decide she can tell women to ignore reputable health organizations
Guidelines For Instance TheFor instance the hysicians midwives and other health care rofessionals are reviewing the SAME research information as Emily Oster is and have concluded that there is not enough uality or conclusive evidence to say that drinking any amount of alcohol during Vater und Sohn unterwegs pregnancy is safe I m not saying that new research doesn t come out guidelines aren t reevaluated and recommendations don t change but I am saying that a non medicalrofessional like Emily Oster is NOT ualified to speak with such authority on these issues This Gesturing Toward Reality: David Foster Wallace and Philosophy puts women and newborns at serious riskFor instance the risks and inconvenience of avoiding deli meat and alcohol are tiny compared to the conseuences if one contracts listeria duringregnancy or if it turns out that low dose alcohol does cause FASD or other health roblems for newborns The major health organizations like the World Health Organization and the American Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists say that there is not enough uality research to ensure that drinking of any amount during regnancy is safe so why would we uestion that until the research is clearerTL DRLONG STORY SHORTPLEASE if you are a regnant woman or know someone who is be smart and don t listen to an economist who is NOT a health care rofessional and thinks her interpretation of the research is somehow superior to large groups of maternal newborn health care ASGAROON - Weltenbrand professionals and researchers looking at the same data It is better to be safe than sorry The author of this book is committing child endangerment I did my graduate studies on fetal alcohol syndrome my family has members afflicted with fetal alcohol syndrome and between graduate and medical school I believe I have the authority to contradict the author and state uneuivocally that no amount of alcohol is safe duringregnancy None Not during the first trimester not during the second not during the third The effects of alcohol on babies tear apart families and ruin lives I m not sure how she manages to come to this conclusion given the enormous amount of evidence stating the clear teratogenic effect of alcohol on the fetus and even the molecular mechanisms behind this It s not like we ve merely found a correlation between alcohol and birth defects We know the exact mechanisms behind these effects It is fact and a great disservice is being done to rospective mothers who read this book and think
THEY CAN DRINK AND STILL PROTECTcan drink and still rotect child. Face an endless stream of decisions from the casual Can I eat this to the frightening Is it worth risking a miscarriage to test for genetic defects Expecting Better resents the hard facts and real world advice you’ll never get at the doctor’s office or in the existing literature Oster’s revelatory work identifies everything from the real effects of caffeine and tobacco to the surprising dangers of gardeningAny expectant mother knows that the health of her baby is aramount but she will be less anxious and better able to enjoy a healthy regnancy if she is informed and can have the occasional glass of wine. Iple thrown Vom schwarzen Revier zur neuen Welt: gesammelte Gedichte pregnancy books I wanted to like this I was attracted to the concept of applying decision makingrinciples to regnancy It s a great concept and not enough regnancy literature emphasizes the risk and tradeoff model or if it does The Black Calhouns: From Civil War to Civil Rights with One African American Family presents inaccurate risks The book has already gotten a backlash for daring to suggest that the zero tolerance approach to alcohol inregnancy is not backed by evidence Shadows in a Timeless Myth prompting 1 star reviews accusing the author of not caring about FASD Thisarticular criticism is in my opinion overblown Unfortunately the book itself doesn t measure up to the concept A full treatment of the C++ Primer problem would be a weighty tome akin to Henci Goer s Obstetric Myths and Research Realities only less biased and up to date To her credit Oster doesn t evenretend to have attempted that Even so the treatment verges on the cursory and would have benefited from closer collaboration with an OBGYN The book is structured as a journey through regnancy using Oster s own regnancy low risk with an unmedicated vaginal delivery as a base narrative This makes the book easy to follow but also has its itfalls Given that a large number of women will have a relatively low risk regnancy and delivery this isn t entirely invalid Many of the things she covers especially in early Zees Story pregnancy are common to all the true risks of cat litter and tuna and therobabilities used in renatal screening have widespread relevance However it also means she completely ignores almost anything outside of her experience Rightly she decided that most of the complications of regnancy are between you and your doctor although she rovides some bullet oints but this also means that C sections get no discussion at all Strangely VBACs do and her discussion is surprisingly skewed She leans towards VBACs being too risky while not mentioning the most freuently discussed concern uterine rupture and doesn t mention the downsides of lanned repeats at all At times it comes off as actually slapdash There s a short discussion of non stress testing in the section about later regnancy and the All Lost Things potential value for delivery but never mentions theossibility that a biophysical rofile will be done There s no discussion of the actual risks involved of routine induction at 40 vs 41 vs 42 weeks which is a fairly common topic of discussion and a natural fit for the chapter Her treatment of home birth is sure to rise some hackles Nor is it helped by a throwaway comment about higher home birth rates and lower infant mortality rates in Europe although on the next age she discusses the difference between erinatal and neonatal mortality Wherefore art thou editor The section on drug classifications is helpful but not entirely so the otential benefits of Category D medications aren t really mentioned It s a short breezy read and A Little Hotel On The Side provides some interesting food for thoughtarticularly with the early Heute Ziehst Du Aus: Roman pregnancy risks but is of limitedractical use As heard on Planet MoneyThe New York Times appears to also have a review but they seem to have completely missed the oint102013 I m only artway through this book but I cannot contain my exuberance This is finally the book that I had just assumed other regnancy books would be but was sadly disappointed to discover they were notFor a given risk factor such as caffeine alcohol or tobacco she lays out the studies that have been done highlights the strengths and weaknesses of each study shows what they found and then leaves the reader now armed with data to decide her own appropriate course of actionFor example caffeine There are a number of studies linking caffeine to miscarriages which have led different doctors to #Give Their Different Recommendations #their different recommendations doctors say up to three cups of coffee er day is ok others say two still others say absolutely no A little background I m 29 weeks The Magnanimous Heart pregnant for the fourth time so Irobably have interest in regnancy than your average JoeWhen economist Emily Oster decided to have a baby she wanted to make informed decisions and assumed the medical community would offer her the statistic based information she is used to finding Instead she received a lot of robably fine and low risk vagueness Since her and her husband s Over Mintmarks and Hot Repunched Mintmarks profession is to find and analyze research she started reading studies aboutregnancy and drawing conclusions The result is an easy to read story of her

After becoming regnant I uickly learned that there are two types of Something Wicked pregnant women ok there are a lot than this but keep reading The first type says Show meroof that this will NOT hurt my baby and I will do it The second type says Show me Velvet Ropes (Club Undercover proof that this WILL hurt my baby and I won t do it It turns out I am the second type which causes many of my friends and coworkers to be absolutely horrified at some of my behaviors most of which involve ingesting things Thankfully my husband and I are on the sameageAs an example a few months ago much earlier in my Freud and His Followers pregnancy I went to lunch with some ladies from work and I ordered a roast beef sandwich One lady gasps in horror and says You aren t actually going to eat that are you To which I look at her like uh der no i just ordered it so i can throw it in the trash can over there Yes of course I waslanning to eat it She says Aren t you worried about listeria From the deli meat and cheeseHere s the thing about listeria Yes it would suck to get it honestly it would suck even if I weren t Pjesme pregnant but no one ever seems to worry about it then And it s very risky duringregnancy because it can cause miscarriages even when the mother shows no symptoms But the last two US listeria outbreaks were in Ice cream bluebell and caramel apples source cdc and the biggest outbreak in recent history was in cantelope in 2011 But you don t hear anyone freaking out if I want to eat some ice cream or apples or melon do you The way I figure it I take much of a risk driving to work every day on I 95 than I do by eating a roast beef sandwich So yeahWhen eople started telling me all the things I cannot do or eat while regnant my first uestion was always why not And 9 times out of 10 they didn t really know Everyone knows you can t have coffee while regnant Everyone knows you can t get massages while regnant Everyone knows you can t have sushi while regnant Says who What are the reasons for thisIf you are like me and ask these kinds of uestions this book is definitely for youOster explains the reasons for all of the no no things during regnancy as well as looking into their validity based on scientific studies And she A'dan Z'ye Yaşar Kemal provides all of the references so you can go look up theapers yourself if you want to draw your own conclusions which I did in a few cases She also looks into Nacht preregnancy things timing conception trying for a specific gender etc non no no regnancy things like genetic testing and medications for non regnancy related illness and labor things The Da Vinci Cod: A Fishy Parody pros and cons of things like VBAC epidurals and episiotomies While she says she tries to be neutral and justrovide the facts so the reader can make their own decisions I don t think she does a great job at this I mean she does The Collaborative Habit: Life Lessons for Working Together provide the facts but she also tells us exactly what she decided to do based on these facts In most cases I came to the same conclusion but there were a few things which of course I don t remember off hand where I made a different decision And that s okAnyway I thought this book was excellent It answered a lot of uestions both directly and indirectly through the resources I had at the beginning of thisregnancy journey and made me feel a lot comfortable with the decisions I am making Highly recommended As a Curse of Rocky Colavito physician I was curious about this book after a few of my friends read it during theirregnancy First of all I found much of the data that she Captive presented was uite interesting and I learned some of the specific aspects ofrenatal care However importantly her tone smacks of rivilege and she falls rey to many of the biases she criticizes doctors and ACOG for She skews how she discusses the research based on whether
or not she agrees with it She appears to be critical of hysicians not knowing the exact data ofnot she agrees with it She appears to be critical of hysicians not knowing the exact data of hundreds of articles she resents without taking into consideration how little time we have to keep up with medical literature Most importantly she seems to universalize her experiences and those of other upper middle class friends to the entire US She rojects her own belief that everyone should have access to minutia to make their own medical decisions regardless of their ability to comprehend this level of detail I am glad I
read this book for the information it had but I m gladthis book for the information it had but I m glad m familiar with being able to detect cognitive biases and see through them for the actual data But she s not writing a Sons of Brahma peer reviewed article she s writing a book for layeople I just hope no one out there relies on this book than they do their hysician I icked this one up after reading several reviews describe it as if you read a single book about regnancy this is the one you should read And I completely agree THERE ARE SOURCES I swear it never occurred to me that the vast majority of regnancy books would cite no sources whatsoever I don t care if you re a doctor Lots of eople call themselves doctors and I m not going to take their advice On top of that the books often say things like Ask your doctor I m reading regnancy books so I can go to my doctor s appointments informed about all the different Tocqueville pros and cons andossible issues with things So that I can then talk to my doctor in an informed way Don t just tell me to talk to my doctor Why bother reading a book thenAnyway Expecting Better is written by an economist Seem odd Sure But she was similarly frustrated by the lack of evidence given in Rebel Girls pregnancy advice books or even by her doctors So she decided to research all the main uestions so she could make informed decisions In each chapter sheresents multiple case studies and weighs all the different decisions new A Treason of Thorns parents can make Herremise is that arents need to make informed decisions She doesn t tell you whether you should or shouldn t get on epidural or drink coffee etc but rather what research shows so arents can make their own decision She argues that there s no right or wrong answer only informed decisions Thus based on her research she decided against an epidural Based on the same research I m going with an epidural Neither of us are wrong in our decisions we re making the choices that are best for us after researching the effects of that choiceI wish everyone did this with everything waited to make an opinion about something until they d researched multiple scenarios So far this is the only Martha, du nervst!: Von einem anderen Umgang mit Demenz pregnancy book I ve read worth reading She didn t research all my uestions aboutregnancy but thankfully I have access to medical research journals through the university I teach at so I m conducting my own research455 After 2 moderately complicated regnancies and mult.
