'cause my video has been mike delayed intermittently during the day. You look fine so far. Good big part of the silence around pregnancy loss. The failure to acknowledge that loss is that we don't always have a shared understanding of what it is or how it shows up. There are lots of ways that people described pregnancy loss. We're using that phrase here but some people describe it as a miscarriage for an example in the medical field. We describe it as a spontaneous abortion. All of those mean the same thing that pregnancy stopped growing Typically in the first trimester but not always. Dr parents says that most of the time it's unclear why pregnancy loss happens.

The Role of DHA in Infant Nutrition
"Today. We look at the long jane. A mega three fatty acid d. h. a. plays an important role in supporting pregnant and breastfeeding women. In our first story we discover how d h improves the development of infants. One of the reasons breastfed infants may have better cognitive. In visual development is because human milk contains long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids like the mega three d. h. a. almost available in formulas did not were infants given control formula without. Dha didn't do as well as those given dha fortified formula. Neither did as well as the breastfed infants. Who serve as the gold standard but this was enough to convince formula manufacturers to start adding dha to their infant formula. Starting back in two thousand to the question then became how much to add easy right just add however much is naturally found in breast milk however the dha level in breast milk is extremely variable. Depending on what the mama's eating for example there's all these healthy populations that don't eat any seafood and have much lower levels in their milk and they seem fine so that makes it difficult to determine the optimal amount to add to formula or for that matter what to recommend for pregnant and breastfeeding women consensus guidelines recommend that women should to consume an average of two hundred milligrams a day of dha during

How To Work Through Pregnancy And Menopause.
"Hi and welcome to help each other hurt a podcast dedicated to uncovering many of the women's health issues many of us are wondering about but few of us are talking about my mission is to expose the current gaps in knowledge and Care on all things Women's Health. Enjoy. Welcome back to the show. So today's episode is going to be all about pregnancy and how conditions may may have affected your pregnancy can come back to play a role in perimenopause and menopause. So you may think these two are completely unrelated and I am here to let you know. There's actually some really interesting themes that we may be able to gleam from our pregnancy that we can use when we look forward to or as we're entering into perimenopause and menopause. Before we get into that let's hear a word from our sponsor from Pharma. Thank you so much for sponsoring. Today's episode film Pharma is a woman's health care company the focuses on putting women first off then Farm was established to help women who are often forgotten about the pharmaceutical industry their products address vaginal and Volvo dryness itching and pain. We're always told how important it is to moisturize our face, but our intimate areas just as important many women have trouble talking about dryness with their doctors and do not know where to turn them far. My mom is here for you. This company feels women should feel comfortable making intimate skin hydration a part of their daily skincare routine try their products today for relief from vaginal and Volvo, dryness wage and pain check them out at fem pharma.com. That's, you are not going to be disappointed. All right, so here comes a fun job. Moment of Truth one of the reasons I wanted to do this episode today is because I am expecting and I've been hiding this fact for a pretty long time. I am in my third trimester and so far pregnancy has gone just fine. I'm not one of those people who really enjoys being a pregnant. I know many women who do simply not one of them. So I have been trying to hide it and I guess that's my way of not focusing so much on it. Thankfully. I'm lucky to be pretty healthy during this pregnancy. And this will be my third child is a surprise. We don't know yet if it's going to be a boy or a girl so it'd be really fun if you want to stick around and see I'm due in early June and not anything like my last baby. This baby might be a little early. So if there is a little break in podcast episodes, it's probably because I just had a baby now you also log I love working and I love what I do is I'll probably be back pretty quickly. And at this point I've gotten really efficient at getting podcast episode out to you. So I wanted to let you know because I do not feel like I was being honest hiding this any longer and I am really excited but it really led me to think about let's talk about how pregnancy relates to. Pause and menopause now. I just said I'm one of those people who loves being pregnant. That's mostly because I'm uncomfortable a lot. However, I have been really blessed to have healthy pregnancies, but every single pregnancy can be thought of as a stress test. So do you know what a stress test is if you don't we typically think about cardiovascular stress tests where they put the little leads you and you have to walk or run on the treadmill and they're looking at the EKG to see when you're under stress what happens to your body and this is gleaming information about future cardiovascular or current call log. Vascular risks that you may have and pregnancy is a very similar. It's a, you know, forty weeks stress test to see when we put your body under a little bit of stress or conditions that arise that may play a role in your health as we go down the line and we're starting to clean so much more information about what we can take from our state and as pregnant women into our health as we go forward, for example, if you had gestational diabetes or gestational hypertension preeclampsia, a preterm birth postpartum depression off or any of these other complications, and I'm going to talk to you about what all those could mean and we're still Gathering a lot of this data. So more and more is to come now what you've never had a baby or you haven't had a pregnancy in your lifetime. I think this episode will still be really interesting because we're learning so much about maternal health and female birth. Factors that are completely independent or different from the traditional and I'm saying those are question. You can't see me risk factors, which is based on the mail system. So thinking about these is also really interesting as well as if you have a friend or a daughter or a niece who's going to be pregnant. This is such a really interesting information to know about first. I'm going to walk you through some soft findings and soft findings means. This is just what I see clinically and I don't really know how it's going to go on to apply but one of the things that I do see a very common basis is women who have had a postpartum depression seemed to have an increased risk for either pmdd, which is severe PMS or mood symptoms in perimenopause and into
Women Share Why They Fight For Reproductive Justice
"Welcome back to ordinary equality. I'm jimmy wilson a writer editor and feminist activist. And i'm kate. Kelly human rights attorney and feminist activist. Today we're talking about an issue that has been undercurrent of a lot of what we've covered so far reproductive justice it's a framework created by black women to center our needs in the midst of a movement that has ignored us for far too long. This episode we're going to discuss some of the reproductive injustice. That continued post emancipation. And how it spurred the founding of a movement bill to address the inequity and the mistrust caused by centuries of reproductive oppression at the end of the episode will learn white folks myself included can do to better center marginalized and underrepresented voices in this conversation. And what organizations are doing on the ground to ensure reproductive justice the slave breeding industry we discussed in episode three left a painful and persistent legacy in this country. Professor jennifer morgan talked about how the historic commodification of black bodies set the stage for ongoing mistreatment of folks embedding generational trauma that persists today that shamas sits beneath much more recent oppression of reproductive rights throughout most of the twentieth century. Eugenics campaigns flourished in the united states quickly becoming the dominant scientific view. The goal was to exterminate all so-called undesirable qualities in society through often-forced selective breeding and sterilization mental illnesses criminal records unwanted racial traits low intelligence levels and even poverty were considered undesirable indicators leading scientists. Believed that all these traits could and should be selectively bred out of the human population by any means necessary as we now know all of these ideas have since been proven to be as false as they are immoral. Time and time again. In the heyday of eugenics thirty-three states allowed involuntary sterilization on groups lawmakers claimed were unfit have children in california mental institutions. Alone about twenty thousand for sterilizations between nineteen o nine and nineteen seventy-nine unsurprisingly. People of color in immigrants were far more likely to be selected as an undesirable group worthy for sterilization mainstream. Scientists pushed these views. As fact margaret sanger the founder of planned. Parenthood got involved in the eugenics movement as she tried to promote reproductive rights. On october sixteenth. Nine hundred sixteen sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the united states. In order to push the idea of birth control rights forward. She consorted with leaders in the ever growing eugenics movement. She even personally advocated for selective breeding herself in one thousand nine hundred ninety one article. She wrote quote. The most urgent problem. Today is how to limit and discourage the over fertility of the mentally and physically defective as damning as that is. There's more to the story. Here's loretta ross. A professor at smith college and former national coordinator of sister song women of color reproductive justice collective on sanger's legacy her involvement in movement. But i also contextualized wbz devos was vaulted with the jenex movement. And so because it was a popular pseudoscience at that time a lot of people were involved in it. And so to single out margaret sanger as the demon is trying to eliminate the black race is just bad historical research because in fact. She was far ahead of her time. Even i called in a sectional list one day because in nineteen teams retired nineteen sixteen. She about poverty. She wrote about racism she wrote about all the inner sexual issues. We're talking about now. One hundred years later she was so ahead of her time and so she was an accident. Early intersection analyst. Who made some mistakes. But then everybody i know. Who's a human being makes. Mistakes if i wanted to do an analysis of everything dr martin luther king junior it wrong. It's an attention. But maybe they demonize him as they do margaret sanger. Many anti-choice advocates claim. That singer sought to eliminate black people from america altogether. That couldn't be less true. She focused the spread of birth control on poor communities many of which were largely populated with people of color. But it's because they were more likely to be susceptible to unwanted pregnancies and she wrote in one thousand nine fourteen enforced. Motherhood is the most complete denial of women's right to life and liberty. It's definitely disturbing to read about many of sanger's eugenic spaced beliefs. Today though she later repudiated everything. About the idea of selective breeding we still have to contend with the damage her involvement in the movement when a well known figure participates in such a harmful ideology it may provide others the justification to do the same. Her language may also have sowed increased wariness and communities of color after atrocities committed by nazi germany on earth. The terror born from the disgusting ideology of eugenics the vocal public support for the movement fizzled and most sleep died in the united states. But for sterilization continued behind the scenes for decades and still takes place today as we'll discuss later in the
Miami-area pregnant woman vaccinated against COVID-19 passed antibodies to baby
"Doctors say pregnant women who get covert 19 vaccine can pass those antibodies onto their unborn Children. This comes after a Florida woman received her vaccine at 36 weeks pregnancy. Three weeks later, she gave birth to a baby girl with antibodies to our knowledge. This was the person in the world that was reported that baby being born with everybody's after a vaccination, Dr Patrick Ramsey, with UT health says. So far, mothers and their babies have only been tested for covert 19 and not the antibodies, he says. As they conduct more studies. I'll know more in the next few
Who Will Be Banned From Cruising When Restarts?
"Unwittingly and very easily added to that crews ban list crews boundless that has got longer due to post pandemic cruising rules. I'm gary bambridge. And i'm going to share with you. The nine ways you can be banned from cruising. Let's start with three new bands that will apply basically because of all the post pandemic cruising rules not having a code. Vaccination will like it or not mean. You're likely to be banned from some. If not eventually all almost cruising although it still evolving your light banned from cruising without a vaccine in the following situations first of all you want to work as crew on the ship or even work as guest speaker entertainer or even talk guide. More lines are making this a condition of employment with royal carribean group norwegian cruise groups. One lennick victory and american steamboat. Already saying that this is going to be the case and other lines are actively discussing it. Secondly if you want to cruise lines that have made a requirement for passes so far that includes at the time of according crystal cruises saga cruises american steamboat and victory cruz. Who have an older passenger profile. No-doubt more cruise lines will follow. Thirdly if you're cruise 'cause on any country that requires a vaccination as a condition of entry. This in my view is inevitable and this is going to become much more widespread in cruising. We're seeing many countries in the european area like greece spain and cyprus there pushing for all of the eu to adopt the rule. They already put in place to allow people in without containing and putting no limits on exploring if you've had a vaccine linked to that irrespective of what happens on vaccines cova. Testing is a key part of the returned crews protocols and looks like it will be that for a while. You will be bad if you test positive before boarding of course but also importantly you will also be banned from cruising if you've been in close contact with anyone testing positive for fourteen days before the crews and that's according to various updated crews contracts that i've read and seen so far another new band has come into place through the return to cruise protocols where lies are building into the cruise terms conditions and contracts. The right that they can ban anyone who breaks any of the new guidelines and rules that are being put in place. You agree to these rules. When you book your cruise you ultimately agree to the cruise contracts so for example in the carribean cruise contract. It now says the following quote this any non-compliance by passenger or members of passengers traveling party with carriers coveting policies and procedures shall be grounds for refusal to board refusal to re board after going ashore. Quarantine onboard the vessel disembarkation reporting to cover mental or health authorities or steps deemed necessary so pretty strong ruling. So if you don't wear masks for example you're not honest in the health. Screenings you wander off the cruise line excursions. Your refused to go and do the onboard temperature checks or testing maintaining social distancing steam to the capacity limited venues staying current cavern of asked to do so. And all those kind of things you will be banned and without compensation so now. Let's look at the six other reasons beyond those new rules. We could find yourself subject to accrues ban. Now you can't be banned for simply the wrong age i will. There are a number of adult only cruise lines which banned travelers that are basically two young which is unusual but true so for example saga cruises requires their passengers to be over. Fifty years of age virgin voyagers required guests to be over eighteen and pino crews has some ships for example in their fleet that early open to of eighteenth and so on secondly lines actually banned people under eighteen or twenty one out of the us and canada travelling without an adult now. There are some exceptions to this. So for example. If you're a couple and your age sixteen eighteen or sixteen to twenty one in the case of the united states are married and could prove it when booking. You're allowed to travel or in fact if you're under eighteen or twenty-one and in the military you're able to travel without an adult is also with noting that most lines banned under eighteen hundred twenty once again in the us from sharing a cab with someone also under those ages and the way you get around. That is the adults. You have to be an adjoining cabin next door or right across the hall lines also banned people under eighteen again under twenty one from the. Us her not traveling with their parents or legal guardian without any sort of written permission and also have been banned from taking part in cruises in the us which are quite the cdc as part of their framework for return of cruising but again. That's kind of a bit of an exception now. Thirdly although it varies a little bit byline many band babies age six months or less for shorter cruises and the sheet increases to twelve months or longer for exotic cruises like transatlantic crossings sending any crews. That has three or more consecutive days. Bands kids twelve months or younger in a really obvious one and not surprisingly if you create trouble act in a dangerous way. Break the law or threaten or abuse a crew. You will also be banned by the line and for life. So for example there have been passes. Who'd been trying to create crazy social media viral shots by doing stupid things like climbing of railings. Climb between cabins. They've been banned for life or carribean australian group. Mass brawl on carnival. They were disembarked and they banned for life passes have even been bad after being caught mugging drugs on the ships and other kinds of tax so basically being bad being causing trouble you will be banned one thing. I haven't been able to find out though is if the lion's share that information and if you're then banned by everyone will just that line. Pregnant women are also on the banned list. Anyone who enters a twenty four weeks of pregnancy during the cruise is also bad and this is because the medical team to have no expertise in pregnancy and childbirth however. The band does not always apply for river cruising. So if you are getting later your pregnancy or we'll be late in your pregnancy and your decrease that could be an option. This of course is because river. Cruise ships are always close to medical care and hospitals. The lines also hold the rights and their contracts to deny boarding and banu if you try and bring a pretty wide range of items on board so that includes recreation drugs guns stun devices knives explosive devices swords or the ultimate could be used as a weapon fireworks drones hover boards balloons and it goes on and on but in practice other than for illegal items like recreational drugs. The lies are more like confiscate them. And hold them until the end of the cruise. But beware backpacking choices particularly recreational drugs. Could have you banned. The cruise lines have pretty few bands or exclusions for medical conditions and they are able to accommodate most with notice although they do say in the contracts. And i'm going to quote this. You must ensure that you are medically and physically fit for travel and that such traveling will not endanger yourself or anyone else so you do need to check before boarding as they may required to do things like higher cookman cabin if you need any own let you travel with all bring a carrot assist you and some also restrict or limit support dogs other than guides visually impaired guests. So it's a bit of a mindful that you need to check around the cruise contracts. Say things again. On a quote this guess affected by a disability or medical condition must be self sufficient or travel with someone you can provide all the necessary assistance. So if you can't do that you will be banned
First baby born with COVID-19 antibodies to vaccinated mother in Florida
"Baby in Florida is believed to be the first in the world born with covert antibodies after her mother is vaccinated during pregnancy. The mother is a health care worker who was given the first dose of the modern, a shot three weeks before giving birth to Palm Beach County pediatricians tested the umbilical cord and saw that the antibodies had passed from mother to child. Reporter Sarah Bartles says it's still not known how effective the protection is for the baby or how long it
Fauci says Trump should urge Republicans to get vaccinated
"Little dirty worm. This Fauci, you know what they call him in Washington behind his back. He's known as Tony Baloney that zoom in Washington D C. Tony Baloney. This guy is such a fraud. Such a weasel this worm found to use on all the Sunday shows. If only Trump would endorse the vaccine. It would be, it would seems like an intrinsic contradiction. that you had a program that was started during his pregnancy, and he's not out telling people to get vaccinated. I wish he would. He has such an incredible influence. Over people in the Republican Party. It would really be a game changer if he did know what is he saying if Trump would only endorse the vaccine That would be a game changer. Isn't that what he just said? Yes on If you don't believe me, I have this up on Twitter. You can see it. On March, 4th. Dr. Anthony Fauci publicly thanked Donald Trump for endorsing the vaccine. Remember the one big speech that Trump made was cpac? That was the speech that everybody saw the 30 million people. That was the speech and certainly all of his followers saw that. In the middle of that speech, he endorsed the vaccine. And if you check my Twitter if you think I'm kidding. It was March the fourth doctor Fauci after that speech, thank the president for endorsing the vaccine. So yesterday, he said. Why can't the press endorsed vaccine about you could save? Maybe he forgot. It's only 10 days. Do you think he forgot? He's just a con man. That's why behind his back in Washington. Everybody calls him Tony Baloney. Uh, Trump not only endorsed the vaccine. He created the vaccine. That's like saying a JFK. Why can't you endorse this base program? He's the one that created it and pushed it. What endorsed the vaccine. He's the one that created Operation Warp speed. He's the one that set up the program to get the vaccine. Fauci, his own boss. Said, watching Trump run operation Vaccine. Exact words was breathtaking and miraculously a watch. So this phony baloney. Fauci has gotta go
Philadelphia health official addresses fertility questions and concerns with the COVID-19 vaccine
"Despite claims circulating on social media, there's no evidence that approved covert 19 vaccines cause fertility loss. Although clinical trials did not study the issue, loss of fertility has not been reported among thousands of trial participants nor confirmed as an adverse event among millions you have been vaccinated. In fact, some of the vaccine trial participants got pregnant. In early February, Reproductive Medicine groups released a statement assuring patients that there's no evidence that the approved Cove in 19 vaccines can impact the capacity to conceive Children. Quote, loss of fertility is scientifically unlikely. Another document prepared by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine in December said there was no reason to delay pregnancy attempts because of being vaccinated since the vex Scene is not a live virus. Multiple false claims tying the Fizer by on tech and modern vaccines with infertility have been in circulation both in English and Spanish for months. Scientists have already debunked a false rumor that baseless. Lee claimed the vaccines could train the body to attack a protein vital for the formation of the placenta. Dr. Paul, often a pediatrician and vaccine expert at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, said people shouldn't be worried about covert 19 vaccines causing infertility. He said. It is very hard for a vaccine to do something that natural infection doesn't do. And fertility loss has not been reported. Even after roughly 67 million people in the U. S have been infected with SARS cov too. And that's my fact check for this week. I'm Lori Robertson, managing editor of Fact,
The mental health impacts of the pandemic one year later
"To be with you today. Tomorrow. It'll be one year that World Health Organization director Ted Rose get Racists made the official declaration pandemic. Is not a word to use lightly or carelessly for 12 months. We've been living with the word pandemic, and it's reality more than 2.6 million people dead and 117 million infected because of the Corona virus. Planet continues to battle the acute phase of the pandemic and what get braces recently called mass trauma. As we hear from the world's Alana Gordon. Psychologists say the trauma will have impacts for years to come. Christie Douglas, He's a paradox. Collectively, we're experiencing this very much together in this moment. However, we are also doing so when we are all socially isolated in distance, collectively together and yet collectively, totally alone. Dangler is a clinical psychologist and global health researcher at Harvard. She says. The pandemic has even disrupted how we mourn. People grieve very differently. Everyone grieves so differently. Some people grieve very publicly. Some people grieve very privately. Sometimes we do a little bit of both. It's a mixed process, so there's really no one right way to do it. Douglas says rituals are essential to be able to begin to acknowledge the reality of the losses. Ah, lot of that has gone virtual this year. She says it's too soon to understand the impacts. But she is worried digitally connecting doesn't replace in person connections. Reef alone is very painful and were not meant to grieve alone, and we're forced now to grieve alone. Oftentimes in isolation. It's a lot. There's the losses from the pandemic and then other losses were grieving was interrupted by the pandemic itself. In the U. S. Black, Latino and other vulnerable communities are already carrying a bigger weight of these losses. This is happening against the backdrop of compound it stressors. So we're sort of in a perfect storm. We worry for downstream, clinically impairing conditions. And what I really worry about is the impact on the most vulnerable among us All. This means the impact of the pandemic and the collective trauma could last for years. Wh o. Emergency operations manager Mike Ryan recently stressed that this sense of loss can't be anyone Individuals burden to carry mental health systems are maxed out. I think there's a point Where it just becomes unethical to continue to call something out as an issue but not actually focus on solutions. Solutions for joy. means re imagine the whole system for addressing bereavement, making it more holistic. She's director of ever more a nonprofit that focuses on improving conditions for families, You know, brief siblings, right higher risk of premature death, dropping out of high school or teen pregnancy. Brief Children experience higher rates of depression. There's a lack of understanding that the systems around the families you can facilitate Helpful, coping, functional, coping or make coping all that more difficult and complicated. Mulherin says. Policies can make a difference like employment and housing protections. Benefit transfers. Psychosocial supports things that just aren't a guarantee right now. Christie Dangler at Harvard is deeply worried, too. She also says it's important to remember when you're into this pandemic that humans are resilient, acknowledging the loss and stress is the first step. And yet, she says, there also might be another paradox. In this moment, perhaps a more optimistic one. It's almost psychologically impossible to truly process and absorb. This without hindsight, without some distance, Douglas says, many maybe feeling none to the magnitude of losses in this moment, and some instances that can actually help it can provide a buffer. It can help us get through a very demanding time. And then when we have the space, we might go back and start the process. But in the meantime, she really hopes that these overdue collective conversations about grief and loss Lead to long term support for everyone who's grieving for the world.
The Problem of Gestational Diabetes With Dr. Elizabeth Boham
"We're gonna be talking about conditions pretty common This one hundred percent preventable. A hundred percent reversible that is managed often in very weird ways by traditional medicine and something that's called just station diabetes which is essentially diabetes of pregnancy. So liz tell us how common is this problem. And why should we even care. Be worried about it. Yeah well thanks mark. thanks for having me. It's great to be on with you again and It's really common actually say up to ten percent of women have diabetes which means their blood. Sugar is too high during pregnancy and as a result. What happens when their blood sugar too high during pregnancy is the babies grow too big right so they will get. They will get over weight when they're born so they can grow big. Those offspring often have increased risk of insulin resistance and diabetes and waking when they're adults so when women have just diabetes during their pregnancy. It makes it harder for that baby to maintain healthy weight. When they're an adult so it's trans-generational absolutely not only. Is it dangerous for the baby. During that pregnancy they have a higher rate of of problems with birth. They've increased rate of c-section but their metabolism is damaged. So they have a harder. Time with maintaining normal weight as an adult. They have an increased risk of obesity. They have an increased risk of insulin. Resistance and For that mother to if they had just stations diabetes they have a much higher rates of diabetes post pregnancy. Both type one and type two which is interesting. So they also have a higher rate of cardiovascular disease. they say that a third will develop metabolic syndrome when the within the next five years. So you know it's it is definitely a risk so if if you were told during your pregnancy that you had just diabetes or you you're at risk for just station diabetes. It's important that you are paying attention to your blood sugar to your insulin level to that waist to hip ratio postpartum. Because because you don't want you wanna be be picking this up early. 'cause it's really much easier to reverse if you pick it up early. Imposed ten percent of women who have pregnancies have this problem which is a lot At but when you think about the fact that one and two americans has prediabetes or type two diabetes. You know that's pretty significant. And the question i am is if ten percent have actual just diabetes which means your blood sugar is over a hundred forty after a glucose tolerance test one hundred. Twenty six fasting. How many have prediabetes. Who are pregnant. Yeah because it might be the same ratio as with regular dhabi might be like ten percent and another forty percent of the population might have prediabetes pregnant and that also comes with risks.
Substack Newsletters Are Unbundling the News Industry
"Week there was a A twitter thread by a professor named sarah roberts who is the co leader and co founder of the ucla center for critical internet inquiry. Who stated goal is quote strengthening democracy through culture making and she went on this tirade about sub stack. Which is obviously where i you know. I work you're gonna work and the threat is kind of amazing. And it's it's the reason. I think it's worth talking about is because this is becoming a thing now There have been a number of features in places like the new yorker and and the new york times wrote about some And there's this increasing like Message that sub stack is like. It's not just annoying but it's dangerous. And so she. She wrote a series of tweets. The first one says some is a dangerous direct threat to traditional news media of more importantly it's threat to journalism. And here's the argument. Journalists make their name doing reporting This is governed by norms and practices in ethics flawed and not always achieve true but president and guiding. What newsrooms do in every way. Yes people not inside. Journalism or media may not know the specifics but they often have a nebulous sense that there are norms independence disclosure of compromise editorial oversight and vetting of the reporting. That's what makes them trust enough to buy or read or watch. What's less obvious is when there is a reporter who makes her name in the newsroom. Traditional paper or fully online outlet then leased for subject or any analog taking that name reputation earned from work done in the context. I just stated in this way and investigative reporter who has earned her bona fide in a newsroom and underbush strict editorial and journalistic principles has just cashed out and turned herself into an opinion writer. She likes it because she's finally got her independence from an editor. Please do not writer or pay sub stack. I have to say it. I believe it's dangerous. Take keyed you read it here. I
BBC Three is Coming Back to TV
"Let's talk about tv and bbc. Three which will be returning to the fusty old fashioned airwaves. After an absence of nearly six years. It's going to be back on. Tv sets in january maggie Will you be watching things target demographic but will you be watching your the target demographic but i'm very piece it's coming back I think he shouldn't've gone away in the fest place. I also like the fact that it's also going to be a following on from cbc so the one of the aims of the bbc. One of the failures of the bbc has been fantastic children's programming. The seabees thought graduating through to see bbc. So we can think of horrible histories strict sonko great great shows but then they lost that advantage and i think now that they're going to take an hour of cbc and move into bbc straight. And i think this is actually a potentially good way of rebuilding interest because they can actually put forward some some grapes. Some great shows whether they'll be watched. I didn't know they can be caught up with but the thing is really spoiled for choice now and to actually just rope a group of a tv channel. Just seems to me to have been a very bad idea. But on the other hand what she see is that the regulators have been nagging away the producers because on the exec because that losing the younger views in but it's a very competitive market so the more outlets you have the best staff is. It's been obvious to real professionals in television including the control of bbc. Three that the decision five years ago it was wrong and so they're finally Reversing it may be too late. But i'm glad that june yes interesting. Jake look back actually or listened back. I should say to what our panelists said here on the media. Podcast when the move was announced that bbc's be bbc three would be moving online because we were on abbott van in two thousand fifteen Leon wilson said on the show to me. It's a huge mistake. It will probably be a qualified. Success will be one or two programs that pumps through online. But it'll be harder for us to be seen and for asthma and said this is nonsense. I can't believe this is happening. Television has an important canvas. That young people under served in time has proven right really. Hasn't it was always a mistake to put bbc three on mine. Can we just say that. Now i think the fact that the bbc's made this decision is a tacit acknowledgement that. It was a mistake. But i also don't think that it was a failure. Bbc three unshackled from the jill did reasonably. Well did very well. In fact some fantastic shows came through within online environment. I'm thinking that alexa flee back which has gone on to huge international success and won emmys and landed phoebe waller bridge a huge deal with amazon. And then you look at things like normal people which came last year plasma successful show Austria and beyond. I think ever Things like this country just quality quality programming now that that's not to say that those shows would not been commissioned if bbc. Three's on television. But i do think there was a creative freedom that came with being online and i hope that that remains that creative freedom continues and the bbc three doesn't have to spend money on shedule filling content like family. Guy like eastenders repeats because that you know that comes with a cost it still comes with. The cost is all repeats but they they still come with a cost shows. So why don't save the cash because all of those shows that jake just listed. Maggie had outings bbc one obesity too anyway. So they did get linear outing. And arguably would have been commissioned even bbc three haven't been an existed somewhere else on the bbc. I'm sure of course feedback with a bit of. The thing is really that that they had a late slot. Which is off to a the news helpless ten which is fine. I suppose but if a peanut the younger teenage area maybe it's better to be a bit more funky roundabout survey to talk of people who've had softened the home what they're looking for some entertainment secondly even if this is a qualified success. It's not you're not saying that. The programming copy shot on another channel. What you'll saying is going to premiere on bbc. Three and the seats will have its own form of promotions. General Ambience and i think that that shows the bbc has about the singer. Bob this past yet really opinion is that we really do well. What what is really happened is despite all channels. Having a terrible television broncos mutawa time in order to make programs have if you had to tear up hills the shadows. I didn't know how they will manage to keep going. It's been a very very very difficult. But they have performed. I think really well. And one of the aspects of it is the the Regulations and the quotas and on the agreements that they strike can have a run the channels what we put in the amount of circle public service will costing lawyers moods of of quotas and measurements to us forty two inches ready test channel phone over a hundred for the for the. They been relaxed because they had to. They had to be what they could be given the circumstances and i think they've done brilliantly and so i do think that another kind of channel to pay rounded up trusting. The bulk custos is at this point. Really good thing. I think that if you look at the energy is gone into some of the changes in just the the kind of logos and all the rest of that using the gen will the bits between the programs. they advertise that pregnancy will be very jazzy. I'm very keen an above all to. They've they've understood what the nation wants so we want more outdoor kind of things. We've had the the devon's on the komo's in the countryside programming that you could possibly drum up and it's been like that too with children Having the the bbc by sesame the government didn't say to bbc in in february across Help children home educate. They just did the juicy and they came up by april with with a complete scheme and then they re extended it. They used radio for Things so i think. Now it's the bbc is about to be besieged on despite order the gloom about since fees advertising and blah blah blah off broke custos. Domestic focuses are ashamed themselves to be foot of grits. And and. I'm beijing
Mother Wit With Certified Nurse Midwife Tanya Tringali
"Tanya thank you so much for joining me on the woman today. I'm so excited to speak with you. Happy to be here tiny. I think you are our first midwife on the podcast. You very cool yeah. I've had a couple of different fertility. Experts instead steph combat now knowing that's a certified nurse midwife so welcome as my first day. That's so cool. I always knew that you know women and children were going to be the focus of my nursing career. But before i fell into the nikki world i was definitely researching the nurse midwife route. 'cause berth itself is just so cool it is it is. I don't think anyone really gets it unless they're actually a delivery room. I i totally agree. And there's so much you just don't think about ever until you're pregnant. I mean i. I have a twenty year old at this point so my birth and i only have one child. Mike was a long time ago. But i am definitely one of those people that didn't think midwives existed when i was first pregnant. I really thought that you only heard midwife. In historical novels such And so such a learning curve for me to be pregnant. I was young. I was pregnant. But i was notably unhappy with my experience from the very first visit. There's gotta be a better way. And then i was in prenatal yoga class and heard somebody say midwife and my ears perked up it was like what is going over there and before you knew it. I was like sitting in the corner arms and noble reading every book. Get my hands on and kind of knew where i was going to go. Navigating a pregnancy and a new career path essay in time. But it's amazing. How many people. That don't know what a midwife is or if they do they think we only attend home births like all those minds of misconceptions that are you know fun to answer all this questions. So is that kind of what drew you into. Midwifery where are you a nurse. I already at this point or not. I went to performing arts high school. I moved to new york with the state. Can hundred bucks. When i was seventeen years old and then i was pregnant at nineteen years old. It was very sort of meant to be kind of situation. Like i never doubted the moment i was pregnant. I never doubted that thing never crossed my mind to do anything else. I've no judgments about what anybody does ever but for me it felt right even though it was really strange. I didn't think it was supposed to feel right. And you know very quickly. I realized that these two experiences. We're going to be very late to figure it out about midwifery. By the time. I was twelve weeks pregnant. And i was on a hat so like i was my first birth as a dula when i was six weeks postpartum and i went to a few births and i said screw it and i was a nursing school and then i got through nursing school with the sole intention of being a midwife by ban i needed to come up for air for a minute. Yes i waited. I worked for two years. The labor and delivery nurse waiting for my kid to be old enough to go to kindergarten and i went to midwifery school while she was intended artem in first grade. So that's that's how it all happen. So those two journeys were intimately linked for me. I'm going to sound just like alexis on shits creek. But i really loved this journey. Well kids. I can't say i know the reference because i tried to watch a few episodes of ships creek like when it first came out and for whatever reason i didn't get into it and everyone says how amazing it is and how the pandemic has changed the way the show comes across and i feel like i have to give it another. Go definitely definitely give it another go. I think the first time. I watched the whole season through or like the whole first thing like shits creek as a as a whole i am. I watched it all the way through. It wasn't really until the second season that i was like. Okay yeah i really get it. And then i just started rewatching watching it all again because it's sometimes need to turn on those. Those calming lake funny shows like parks and rec is gone off netflix. Now and i still have shits creek and meant just. It's great to have on during the day. And i'm just laughing but off now so i'm gonna have to give it another go with all my free time i would. So what was midwifery school like for you. Like what's all involved in that so midwifery school kind of ties into another big piece of my life. I think i guess. I tend to Dotson things at the same time. I so i went to nyu new york university for nursing. Okay and when it came time to go to midwifery school. I wasn't super excited about going to one of the campus based programs in new york like it wasn't about that i thought i wouldn't get a good education at all the new york based schools. But i knew that they would put me in a clinical site and that it wouldn't be my choice and i had really clear beliefs about time to wipe. I wanted to be and where i wanted to train. I had i gave for a free standing birthing center and i was really interested in doing center. Work home birth. Were all of that. And i just at the time did not really want to be in the hospital understandable. I figured out that there were some distance education programs. And that at some of the distance. Ed programs you actually had to find your own clinical site and while that might be a deterrent for some people for me gave me the freedom to figure it out

The most efficient and speedy worker who has no needs right to obeys the clock absolutely in body and mind and spirit, and so living with someone who's misfit on those temporal standards has just reminded me how actually the time of of industry is not really set up for anyone. So I introduce the reader to an idea long held in disability studies by disabled people called crypt. Time. Sierra Ip. which is short for cripple and crypt time and Christmas, and general is like one of these terms that used to be a derogatory term, nobody would want you to call them a cripple right. But crips is has been away to reclaim that language make a term of empowerment but crip time isn't just the longer time that can take to get through. The world in a wheelchair or something else crip time is this diagnosis of the exacting you know and punishing even standards of economic time by which each human is measured as an index of are worse and that really is what's at stake here right.

It's like you fail if your risk for developing having a down syndrome is too high, right? Like that's like considered failing the test which was really interesting. Yeah it is and I know what people mean of course you know and but in you have to have experienced differently disorder, see it with a critical eye and yet I do hope that people will ask those those critical questions with which are like, what Oh what is, what is it desirable life for any of my children?

We'll make sure we get that information out to you again before we wrap up the mom show today, but we're talking about some The postpartum tips will move into some social distancing tips, but I think it's I I'm always appreciate it appreciate the fact that we do hear more stories about helping people navigate postpartum depression and Them. Encouraging people and de stigmatizing that whole process so that people feel more likely to go out and get help and know that it's okay to not be okay during that particular time in their life. Absolutely. And I encourage women encourage people If you Are experiencing extreme anxiety. If you have lots of anger if you're sad if you're crying every day. Those are reasons to reach out to a professional, right, And that could be us. That could be a mental health professional. That could be your primary care provider. But those are the reasons to really reach out. Everybody talks about sadness. But there's all of these other big emotions, too. And so when I check in with women at our clinic We do I ask those things every visit. How are you doing As things changed. I feel really anxious. They're really angry or really sad. He crying every day because some people are someone that'll say. Yeah, I am crying every day and it's okay for me to say wow. That's not so normal, maybe right to think about that. And and what either we could help you, dude it tio change may be what's making that happen? O R to really see if those emotions if those hormones If that depression or anxiety, whatever that is, if we can help in other ways, right, and so it is OK to pick up that phone, you know, and get on that zoom call or find somebody new and I know that they have actually changed. A lot of Some of those guidelines so you can get some of those initial meetings taken care of, so you can get resource is get resource is and I think the most important thing is to what I am hearing a lot of people. A lot of pregnant people in a lot of women saying is They're having these things going on that really are affecting their emotional health. But the phrase I hear is I don't know how I'm going to connect her. I don't want to connect their start care with somebody over zoom rides. I hear you. Yeah, it's hard. However. Um Try and kind of get over that piece. Try it. Try it once tried twice. This isn't changing any time soon on, And if you're having those big emotions that is definitely a reason to not await right weeks months. You know, to talk with somebody right now. This is not the time to swallow those things and say we can get there on our own. Right go Absolutely So you know when we're thinking about just kind of that postpartum period and getting ready for postpartum in that babymoon, it actually really starts in your pregnancy. So late in the pregnancy. You know what your health is like, has a profound effect on your postpartum period. Okay? So it's kind of like preventative health. If you're not healthy, leading up to something you can't expect to be healthy on the other end, right, right. And so the few things I think that are really important to talk about are in that third trimester. Really understanding that rest is okay. You know, really taking time. To rest reduce stress. But what does that look like? So that might mean you feel like you are done at five or six a night. Or sooner. Sometimes, yes, and want to go to bed, So do it. So do it. You might feel like you need one whole day of the weekend to just rest and laze around and then be up and doing things the other day of the weekend, all normal. I mean, we always say, you know, in the early pregnancy Generally, women start experiencing pregnancy fatigue, and it's unlike any other fatigue that really you've had in your life because you can't really push through it. No. And you really just I remember sitting on my parent's couch visiting them, and I remember just sitting there and I must have closed my eyes. And then all of a sudden I open my eyes and I think a couple hours passed and my mom looked at me and kind of chuckled and I'm like, Oh, my gosh, I have gotta scare your story. I remember there was one time I think I dozed off at a stop light on and I was like, Oh, my gosh. How long have I been here? And I'm like you need to sleep or this's not just Yeah, it's OK, and we're so used to pushing through. Through. This isn't the time to push through it like it's a badge of honor. Like, however, that going, you know, trying to reframe the way I thought about rest and sleep. Yes, you're going. Look, I can get by on this. That shows that I'm tough. No, no, no, that'll just cause problems. Later on comes down, Teo. And so that early, you know, pregnancy fatigue comes back between around 28 to 32 weeks. So just kind of putting that in the back your mind and thinking, Okay, I'm gonna have that tiredness come back and know that it's okay. It's normal because I think a lot of People are a lot of women come in to the practice, and they almost look like why can't I do mow our ride? And it's kind of like, Well, you're not supposed to be able to do more. You're growing up and growing a little human. That's a lot of work. Your body is doing happening on its own. Just work. Yes. So really rest, you know, And I know this is a stressful time for everyone but trying to find little ways to reduce stress. And, you know, I found I'm I'm guilty of it right. I'm guilty of being busy and pushing through. But the one thing I've really found that doesn't take a lot of time but could be really helpful is just stopping and taking breath fried. I realize it sounds so easy, but that that advice is coming to us from a lot of different source. Oh, yeah. And I know our watches or phones Ding and they tell us to get up or take a breath. And I think for a long time, I thought, Oh, my gosh. Just quit digging at me. But you know, once you start actually just pausing and taking those couple breaths. You feel better, right? Try it. What have you got to lose? Exactly, And it doesn't take a lot of time. But, um, the other thing that we talked a lot about in that third trimester and we focus a lot on is women's iron status. And I know I've talked about iron in the past and the importance and pregnancy But Knowing what your hemoglobin and Farren levels are in pregnancy are important, okay? Hemoglobin is ah, a blood test, and it tests your circulating iron kind of what's readily available. Your ferret nose, your iron stores. And so that's just what started our body and then what our body pulls from, Okay when we need more, and what is iron do for us, So the biggest so let's talk about symptoms things women would experience if their irons low. So you might feel really winded, walking up a small flight of stairs or walking period, you might feel really fatigued. And the interesting thing is is we test hemoglobin and feared him for everybody in our practice. And even sometimes women's hemoglobin is normal. That's circulating, but there ferreting is so low. Even if your hemoglobin is normal, your fair it's really low. You could still have a lot of fatigue. And so I find as women are just used to operating at whatever they think this normal is, yes. And then we identify these levels and we start supplementing with adequate iron. And then it doesn't take long. You know, in a couple of weeks, all of a sudden this new normal means Oh, my gosh, I feel better. I feel better. I feel less foggy. I've got more energy. I don't feel like I'm dragging and breathing better. That means oftentimes, then that like, okay, Now I feel like I could go out for a walk. Okay? Or I can you know these little things that that make can make a difference. And so no, your iron status is important. And then the type of iron that you take makes a difference, Okay? So we talk about a plant based iron. Um, aps instead of more like a synthetic iron. Okay, so because generally, when people think Oh my gosh, I have to supplement with iron. I'm going to be constipated or my stomach's gonna hurt And yes, the synthetic iron If you're taking too much, or some women are more sensitive to it. It does cause constipation. Plant based iron, though, however, doesn't and it tends to be better absorbed. So we see those iron levels elevate more quickly. Okay, so and then always remembering. You know when you're taking your iron to take it with a vitamin C source and away from calcium..

"Your benefits and your risks. It's like everything has advantages disadvantage. Everything has some things about it. That are great. And some things about it that aren't great that is the education. I provide women I teach them how to take into account all the advantages of each option and all this advantages of each option, and you know, everything has both. Everything has both advantages and disadvantages, and the problem is people tend to think of everything we try to. We a label things. Good or bad. We tend to see things in black or white colors as far as whether they're good or bad, right or wrong, better or worse. And when you try to classify things like that. At in kind of an all or none fashion. All good or all bad. It doesn't serve you will. Because you're missing the point first of all nothing. Nothing is good for everybody. Everyone has to realize that they are unique. And they have to find out what's best for them. So when it comes to your Minna pause. The goal is to know the basic advantages and disadvantages of each and every option each and every product each and everything what it can do what it cannot do periods from a scientific basis. You have to cert- yourself into the equation. In other words, you apply that information to you? If you don't apply it to you. It doesn't make any difference. Nothing matters unless you're plying it to you because you're the only person who matters nothing means anything if you don't coordinate with what your needs are. And so what I do with this education. What I spend my time doing with women is I teach them all these things in a language that they can understand us props on us models. I use very tales. I use whatever it takes to help you really learn it and really understand it in a down to earth manner. And once you understand the fax, then you say, okay. Well, my situation is one which I have this going on to that going on. And what we do is. We take your situation, and we. Match it to the information and decide how your best options lineup.
