The World Health Organization in 2005 stated relative to childbirth that “every minute one woman dies from the complications linked to pregnancy and childbirth.” How incredible!
Pregnancy and childbirth are viewed as particularly natural, normal and essentially trouble-free occasions, in American society. American women do not die unnecessarily from infections or the complications of infection that plague third world countries. Because regard, American women own it pretty good.
But, American women die in appalling numbers from murder at the hands of these spouses and/or significant others. American women die in childbirth in the process of having a baby and in the postpartum phase from heart related disorders, such as for example postpartum idiopathic cardiomyopathy, along with other factors!
I propose seeing the fetus that the woman carries to fruition as a parasite. Because regardless of the Johnston & Johnson’commercials, the infant showers, the cute little clothes, and the glamourization of childbirth (and rightfully so) the fetus is a parasite upon the woman’s body! And even though we’ve the accouterments for childbirth, they need to be, WE have to be in prime condition to ensure that what to go well or at the least as expected.
As well with this specific parasitic relationship, the lady becomes a lot more vulnerable as she carries a child she needs to protect or seeks to protect. The man or spouse soon realizes the vulnerability of a pregnant woman! Some men act on this knowledge and exert control, become jealous, yet many do not, and welcome the opportunity to act being an expectant parent.
Usually, women enter into pregnancy not knowing initially they are pregnant. I am conscious of the in the home pregnancy tests. Yet, pregnancy still comes as a shock to numerous women. Unless a female aggressively and vigorously prepares her body for the demands of childbirth (and these demands are real and dangerous) she is creating her body to fail’her. حوامل‘ NOT the fetus, necessarily, but the lady herself is put behind the eightball and essentially her body struggles to catch up with the increasing demands placed upon it.
WHY? Because the fetus, that delightful little parasite will literally take whatever it needs from the mother to survive. The fetus can take nutrients from wherever in order to survive. If a female becomes pregnant, yet she is malnourished, and by malnourished I mean how we as Americans normally eat; on the go, not necessarily three nutritious meals a day, no vitamins or supplements, etc., and so forth, the lady has nutritionally compromised herself.
By the full time she discovers she is pregnant, the fetus is ahead in pilfering nutrients from the mother body, thus inducing the mother’s body to work harder and her heart to work harder, along with her other organs, to generally meet the wants of not merely the host (Mommy) but the infant (parasite!)
With the escalation in blood volume as a result of creating a person, the mother’s heart attempts, for the most part successfully, to work with this specific increased volume. When the heart gets’stretched’to the level whereby it loses it functional ability, this is called idiopathic cardiomyopathy or cardiomyopathy.
As a cardiothoracic RN, I’ve witnessed women who have delivered in the OR and then required a heart transplant just after! I have also witnessed women who because of the nature of pregnancy and their assumption that pregnancy is so’natural’a situation of affairs for girls, ignore or even their OB-GYN doctor may ignore their constant complaints and presenting symptoms! I’ve witnessed these sets of events resulting in the deaths of young AMERICAN women!
All this is to say that women should be in their best optimal health before attempting pregnancy. Women of childbearing age should especially know about the necessity for nutrition, vitamin supplementation always, along with being conscious of if they first become pregnant.
When a female learns that she is pregnant it is very important to fortify yourself first and then your baby. It is exactly the same rationale as when on a plane and the oxygen mask falls down, placed on yours first and then your child. If you don’t, you die or become compromised and therefore cannot help anyone!
