  • Running Just 5 Minutes a Day Can Help You Live Longer

    28 Jul 2014 | 12:30 pm
    “This study encourages inactive people to participate in more physical activity including running,” Dr. D.C. Lee, lead researcher and assistant professor of kinesiology at Iowa State University, told Yahoo Health. He noted that the two big surprises of the study, published Monday in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, were that “we can get significant mortality benefits by running even 30 to 60 minutes per week, which is below the recommendations by the World Health Organization and the US government,” and also that the benefits matched those of the longer-distance…
  • Fist Bumps More Hygienic Than Handshakes, Say Scientists

    28 Jul 2014 | 11:58 am
    Photo by LONDON (AFP) - Fist bumps are more hygienic than handshakes and drastically reduce the risk of spreading infectious diseases, researchers in Britain have found. The study discovered that a handshake transfers 10 times as much bacteria as a fist bump, following a series of tests at Aberystwyth University on the west coast of Wales. Doctor Dave Whitworth, who led the research, said the study could have a serious impact on public health. The results of the research, published in the American Journal of Infection Control, showed that handshakes passed on far…

  • Florida Hospital Forces Woman to Undergo C-Section Against Her Will

    28 Jul 2014 | 11:19 am
    Jennifer Goodall of Cape Coral, Florida, got a letter earlier this month from nearby hospital Bayfront Health Port Charlotte, where she had been planning to give birth naturally, saying that it would not allow her to try to have a vaginal delivery because she had had C-sections in the past. A VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarian) is a controversial procedure for some doctors, who think it’s too risky to pursue.

    I was watching Bachlorette with some girlfriends, and it must have been the episode where the guys do a little striptease for Andi because somehow we got on the topic of pole dancing. Leah was all “Oh, you’ve gotta see this video of this chick pole dancing, she’s amazing!” Then we huddled around her cell phone watching in amazement as a woman much larger than myself did all kinds of acrobatics on a pole. In one word, it was inspiring. You know how it goes when you’re chatting with your friends. One things lead to another and next thing you know you’re searching Yelp to see if…

    I hope I don’t bore you to tears with what I’m about to say. Trust me, before last week I was in the same boat. Whenever one of my friends started going on about dieting, or counting calories I’d put on my enthusiastic face when really I’d be thinking about what kind of delicious snack I wanted to devour when I got home. I’ve never been a calorie counter. I’ve always found the idea daunting, exhausting and time consuming. I have, however been working out almost daily for the last several weeks. A friend of mine kept telling me I should download MyFitnessPal. I didn’t want to…

I didn’t even take a moment to ask you or apologize for the fact that my son whacked you with a pencil… Or at least that’s what I assumed happened after seeing the disgusted look on your face. I tried to act like I didn’t see him with the pencil as you yanked it from his hands but really, I wanted to say thank-you. Thank you for peeling it from his death grip. I would have done the same except for two things: 1. My son finding that pencil was the best thing that had happened to me since we arrived at the library. Before then he was…

Part of me is sad to be nearing the end of this motherhood experience, but a greater part of me is feelin’ all “see ya!” Photo by Rebecca Loren Photography. The benefits are great. My children get nourishment and comfort, I burn calories (allegedly) and a get a lower risk of breast cancer. Win-win. But let’s just be honest, there are some downsides that come with breastfeeding too. Here are three reasons I’m excited the end is near: 1. I think it’ll help…

When trying to sort them out with the hubs, we seemed to be talking about different theme parks it went something like this: She says: We should start planning our trip to Disney, I hear you can get good deals if you book in advance. How about we go this fall? He says: Fall? We are going for Spring Break. She says: When everyone else is going to be there? Bad idea! Disney World will be so crowded. He says:…

  • The NT Scan: Should You Do It?

    2 May 2014 | 4:00 am
    Before you’ve probably shared your pregnancy news with the world (aka Facebook), your doctor may offer you a NT scan, or the nuchal translucency screening. This screening is performed towards the end of the first trimester in two parts – a blood test and a specialized ultrasound. The results are then evaluated by a physician and your baby’s risk for several different chromosomal abnormalities is calculated. So, should you do it? There are several things to consider. 1. It may not be covered by your insurance. As an optional test, you may be footing the bill. Always check…
  • 5 Fabulous Cloth Diaper Tips (No, You Haven’t Heard Them All!)

    3 Apr 2014 | 6:10 am
    1. The sun is your friend. Most of the time, even with the ickiest baby poop, my diapers would come out of the wash looking brand new (having a sprayer helps, I think). But, if your diapers come out of the washer looking less than perfect, just hang them up outside and let the sun do its thing. Seriously, the sun will bleach the stains right out of your diapers! 2. You might have the wrong type of washing machine. It’s true, you can wash cloth diapers in a high efficiency front loader, but you’re more apt to have issues with detergent build-up, ammonia stink, and other fun things. A good,…

    In the weeks before my now-10-month-old daughter, Julie, was born, I tried to learn as much as I could about labor and delivery without forming any expectations for my own experience. I hoped for the best, but mentally prepared myself for all sorts of worsts, just in case. Then, in the final moments of my nearly 24-hour labor, I ended up having a thing I didn’t even remember reading about: chorioamnionitis, or “chorio” (like Oreo with a hard C sound at the beginning), for short. It wasn’t as bad as many of the other “worsts” I’d prepared myself for,…

    The process of human reproduction is remarkable in its complexity. Broadly divided into the stages of ovulation, fertilization and implantation, human reproduction embodies multi-levels of challenges and medical wonders. Ovulation The human ovary comprises of millions of follicles, hundreds of which will develop during a woman’s lifetime. During each menstrual cycle, the release of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) triggers the growth and development of several ovarian follicles. Upon stimulation by the luteinizing hormone (LH), one mature follicle releases an egg into the reproductive…

Although many of these cases may benefit from IVF treatment, in my practice, I have seen many couples back away from the same.

Also, suggestions may be sought from a couple’s Ob/Gyn doctor for a good fertility clinic. However, it is advisable to do one’s research by visiting the clinic.

  • Tubal Reversal Surgery: Getting Your Fertility Back

    Deborah Smith
    14 Jul 2014 | 10:03 am
    Tubal ligation is a method of birth control for women. The Fallopian tubes are blocked by clamping or sealing to prevent pregnancy. A woman’s egg needs to pass through the Fallopian tubes to meet the sperm, and thereafter enter the uterus following fertilization. Once the Fallopian tubes are “tied”off, the passage of egg is blocked, leading to sterilization. Women, who have previously undergone tubal ligation, may later decide to conceive. Tubal reversal surgery is an option through which this is possible. A tubal ligation reversal rejoins the blocked segments of the Fallopian tubes,…

    Oocyte or egg cryopreservation is the process of extracting and freezing eggs until the time is ready for their use. During assisted reproductive technology procedures, the frozen eggs can be thawed out, fertilized in vitro and transferred to the recipient’s womb for pregnancy to ensue. Egg cryopreservation can benefit women with varied fertility concerns. Women diagnosed with cancer, but have not started treatment, can cryopreserve their eggs for later use. In addition, women who are planning on having a child later on in their lives can freeze their eggs when their fertility is at its…
