People aren’t haven’t kids until around 35 because oh the changing world and
women’s only role isn’t having a child anymore. More women are freezing their
eggs. And there are repercussions to waiting to have children late. More birth
defects and, less fertility rate. But you normally have higher education, and higher
income and better prenatal care.
Rates of adolescents pregnancies decreasing.
There is inequalities in health care and that can be seen with more black deaths
and white deaths in the US. Black babies and mothers die more than white
mothers. Lots of risk factors such as chronic stress, lack of postpartum care etc.
Indigienous populations (IP) in Canada
Hier risk of adverse birth outcome than non indigiounouse populations (NIP)
Infant moratlity rate twice the rate of NIP
Rates of SIDS more thand 7 times higher.
Gender-neutral birth terms because there care many different people have babies now.
Birthing person instead of mom or women
Laboring person or person in labor
Current issues:
Midwifery: better for baby and mom if a midwife is involved
Promoting health and normal birth vs. medicalization
Ethics issues:
Third party payers: any fertility or birthing assistance has to be in the private sector
which is a birth financial strain if they cant do it on their own
Older age pregnancies
HIV positive women seeking assisted preproduction
Induced ovulation and in vitro fertilizations
Promote normal birth within tech environment not the safest and the most expensive so
why are we doing it?? and that is why we want to Promote normal birth within tech
environment
Choose wisely Canada initiative- it shows which tests are not needed and if more tests are
done then it increases their risk if more tests are done.
