What Every Pregnant Mom Needs to Know About Shoulder Dystocia

Posted on May 3, 2010 at 11:18am 0 Comments

Although most pregnant women anticipate a normal, uncomplicated delivery, there are exceptions to the rules. A shoulder dystocia is one of the more frequent complications in the delivery room and unfortunately there is no sure-fire way to predict it.

A shoulder dystocia means that extra maneuvers must be done to deliver the baby’s shoulders. If not managed properly, the baby could sustain permanent injuries to its neck and arms. The most… Continue

A Dog and a Baby

One of the most phenomenal stories regarding babies that I ever heard was reported on CNN in May 2005 and in the May 30, 2005 edition of Jet Magazine.

This baby girl was dressed… Continue

I love my local dollar stores. It’s one of my favorite places to shop when I want to reward my sons inexpensively and have fun in the process. My husband often calls me the “queen of the deals” because saving money always gives me an adrenaline rush. So imagine the rush I felt when I discovered that dollar stores now sell pregnancy tests and are giving name-brand competitors a run for their money.

According to the August issue of Ob.Gyn. News… Continue

Fetal Sex Determination: Is It a Right or Privilege?

Posted on December 7, 2009 at 1:12pm 0 Comments

When Padma Lakshmi, the celebrity host of the cooking show, Top Chef, declined to reveal the gender of her unborn baby on a talk show, she represented an exception to the rule among pregnant women: most want to know what they’re having and share the news with the rest of the world.

Women under age 30 still have a difficult time believing that pregnant women once had children without knowing the gender of their baby until birth. In the age of 4-D ultrasounds performed in strip malls,… Continue

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
