Birth Mothers Rock

Birth Mothers Rock

I just had one of my favorite discussions about adoption. It’s the one that usually starts something like, “What about the… mother?”

I smile sweetly and say, “I am the mother. Are you asking about the birth mother?”

And inevitably they are. Inevitably they’re asking, “What’s her story? How can she give her baby away? Why doesn’t she want it? Is she on drugs? If she didn’t want a child why did she let herself get pregnant? What’s wrong with her?”

I don’t mind those questions. Well, I’ve gotten used to them, anyway, and I believe that most people ask out of concern… concern for the baby, concern for my family, concern driven by the media’s sensationalized presentation of the occasional adoption-gone-wrong.

But still, I’m working for the day when “What about the (birth) mother?” means “How is she doing? Did she have any medical complications? Is she with her family or the birth father? Does she have a post-adoption support system in place? Is she at peace with her decision? Is she OK?”

That would be awesome. Because birth mothers are as much mothers as any other women who have delivered children. Birth mothers get pregnant and share their bodies to give life the same way other women do.

Some birth mothers smoke during pregnancy and some don’t.
Some do drugs and some don’t.
Some have multiple partners and some don’t.
Some use contraception and some don’t.
Some receive regular pre-natal care and some don’t.
Some text while driving and some don’t.
Some get heartburn and hemorrhoids and morning sickness and gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia and migraines and some don’t.

But all birth mothers love their babies.

All birth mothers love the life within them enough to publicly admit their own shortcomings.

All birth mothers risk shame, judgement, grief, loss, misunderstanding, and physical pain to carry a child for someone else.

All birth mothers deserve respect for choosing to give life when it is clearly not the easy choice.

I sometimes wonder what I would have done if I had gotten pregnant as a teen or unmarried young woman. I wasn’t ready to be a mother, and I like to think I would have had the courage and selflessness to make an adoption plan for my baby, but I’m not sure. I’m not at all sure.

So, what about “the mother”? I’ve jumped right back into the routine of parenting an infant. I’m high on the blessings of two fantastic kids, and with my husband’s help (he’s fantastic, too) I’m slowly catching up on my sleep.

As for the birth mother, she’s healthy, certain, and loved by her family and friends. She’s moving forward, and she’s very OK.

Thanks for asking.

Inflammatory Breast Cancer

Inflammatory Breast Cancer

The symptoms of cancer will appear and grow rapidly day by day, week by week. Women with inflammatory breast cancer often have no idea that they have breast cancer because IBC does not usually form a lump in the breast. Instead, this cancer forms ‘sheets’ of cancer cells making your breast feel thicker or heavier than usual. Other symptoms of IBC include swelling and tenderness of the breast, discoloration (usually red to purple) of the breast, itching or pain in the breast, dimpled or rough looking skin on the breast, swelling or crusting of the skin on the nipple and flattening or retraction of the nipple. Many of these symptoms mimic those of a breast infection, or mastitis. Mastitis usually causes a fever and usually occurs in younger breast-feeding mothers. Mastitis will respond to antibiotics. IBC, which has been documented in breast-feeding women, does not cause a fever nor respond to antibiotics.

Because the symptoms of IBC are so similar to mastitis and because inflammatory breast cancer is so rare, many doctors misdiagnose this cancer as mastitis. Patients are often prescribed multiple rounds of antibiotics because it doesn’t clear up after the first round. If you have these symptoms and your doctor wants you to take more than one round of antibiotics, ask for a biopsy or referral to a breast specialist. You may have to be very aggressive to get the proper diagnosis. This is vital because the earlier this is diagnosed, the sooner you can begin treatment and the better your survival chances.

A proper cancer diagnosis usually results from elimination of mastitis as a culprit, with the symptoms still present and possibly getting worse. Your doctor may schedule you for a mammogram or a breast sonogram to confirm the diagnosis, but these are not very reliable with this cancer because the affected area may not show up. A biopsy is the most effective way to confirm diagnosis of this cancer, however it may still be wrong if your doctor biopsies the wrong area of your breast. Because this cancer does grow very rapidly, your doctor may also schedule other tests to determine if your cancer has spread to other organs in your body. This will affect your course of treatment.

Your treatment depends largely upon whether your cancer has spread to other organs of your body. You will most likely have a team of doctors talking with you, trying to determine the best course of treatment for you. You will receive aggressive treatment because inflammatory breast cancer is a late stage cancer. This means you will most likely receive chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy. You will most likely receive chemotherapy first because this cancer makes performing surgery first risky due to the skin changes it causes. Chemotherapy also works to shrink the size of the cancer, making it more likely that surgery will remove all of it. The surgery that most women choose with this cancer is a mastectomy, or complete removal of the affected breast. This is because the cancer is often widespread throughout the breast, making a surgery that preserves breast tissue highly unlikely.

During surgery, your surgeon will probably remove the lymph nodes under your arm to examine them for cancer. After surgery, you will most likely receive radiation therapy. Radiation therapy is used to kill any cancer cells that the surgeon may have missed and to help prevent the cancer from returning. Inflammatory breast cancer has a high incidence of recurrence, so your doctor may prescribe additional rounds of chemotherapy if you responded well to the previous rounds or hormone therapy if your cancer was the type that grew in the presence of estrogen.

General Foot Health

General Foot Health
A Biological Masterpiece, But Subject to Many Ills

The human foot is a biological masterpiece. Its strong, flexible, and functional design enables it to do its job well and without complaint—if you take care of it and don’t take it for granted.


The foot can be compared to a finely tuned race car, or a space shuttle, vehicles whose function dictates their design and structure. And like them, the human foot is complex, containing within its relatively small size 26 bones (the two feet contain a quarter of all the bones in the body), 33 joints, and a network of more than 100 tendons, muscles, and ligaments, to say nothing of blood vessels and nerves.

Tons of Pressure


The components of your feet work together, sharing the tremendous pressures of daily living. An average day of walking, for example, brings a force equal to several hundred tons to bear on the feet. This helps explain why your feet are more subject to injury than any other part of your body.


Foot ailments are among the most common of our health problems. Although some can be traced to heredity, many stem from the cumulative impact of a lifetime of abuse and neglect. Studies show that most Americans experience foot problems of a greater or lesser degree of seriousness at some time in their lives; nowhere near that many seek medical treatment, apparently because they mistakenly believe that discomfort and pain are normal and expectable.


There are a number of systemic diseases that are sometimes first detected in the feet, such as diabetes, circulatory disorders, anemia, and kidney problems. Arthritis, including gout, often attacks foot joints first.

Specialized Care


Your feet, like other specialized structures, require specialized care. A doctor of podiatric medicine can make an important contribution to your total health, whether it is regular preventive care or surgery to correct a deformity.


In order to keep your feet healthy, you should be familiar with the most common ills that affect them. Remember, though, that self-treatment can often turn a minor problem into a major one and is generally not advisable. You should see a podiatric physician when any of the following conditions occur or persist.

Athlete’s foot is a skin disease, usually starting between the toes or on the bottom of the feet, which can spread to other parts of the body. It is caused by a fungus that commonly attacks the feet, because the wearing of shoes and hosiery fosters fungus growth. The signs of athlete’s foot are dry scaly skin, itching, inflammation, and blisters. You can help prevent infection by washing your feet daily with soap and warm water; drying carefully, especially between the toes; and changing shoes and hose regularly to decrease moisture. Athlete’s foot is not the only infection, fungal or otherwise, which afflicts the foot, and other dry skin/dermatitis conditions can be good reasons to see a doctor of podiatric medicine if a suspicious condition persists.

Blisters are caused by skin friction. Don’t pop them. Apply moleskin or an adhesive bandage over a blister, and leave it on until it falls off naturally in the bath or shower. Keep your feet dry and always wear socks as a cushion between your feet and shoes. If a blister breaks on its own, wash the area, apply an antiseptic, and cover with a sterile bandage.

Bunions are misaligned big toe joints which can become swollen and tender. The deformity causes the first joint of the big toe to slant outward, and the big toe to angle toward the other toes. Bunions tend to run in families, but the tendency can be aggravated by shoes that are too narrow in the forefoot and toe. There are conservative and preventive steps that can minimize the discomfort of a bunion, but surgery is frequently recommended to correct the problem.

Corns and calluses are protective layers of compacted, dead skin cells. They are caused by repeated friction and pressure from skin rubbing against bony areas or against an irregularity in a shoe. Corns ordinarily form on the toes and calluses on the soles of the feet. The friction and pressure can burn or otherwise be painful and may be relieved by moleskin or padding on the affected areas. Never cut corns or calluses with any instrument, and never apply home remedies, except under a podiatrist’s instructions.

Foot odor results from excessive perspiration from the more than 250,000 sweat glands in the foot. Daily hygiene is essential. Change your shoes daily to let each pair air out, and change your socks, perhaps even more frequently than daily. Foot powders and antiperspirants, and soaking your feet in vinegar and water, can help lessen odor.

Hammertoe is a condition in which any of the toes are bent in a claw-like position. It occurs most frequently with the second toe, often when a bunion slants the big toe toward and under it, but any of the other three smaller toes can be affected. Although the condition usually stems from muscle imbalance, it is often aggravated by ill-fitting shoes or socks that cramp the toes. Avoid pressure on the toes as much as possible. Surgery may be necessary to realign the toes to their proper position.

Heel pain can generally be traced to faulty biomechanics which place too much stress on the heel bone, ligaments, or nerves in the area. Stress could result while walking or jumping on hard surfaces, or from poorly made footwear. Overweight is also a major contributing factor. Some general health conditions—arthritis, gout, and circulatory problems, for example—also cause heel pain.

Heel spurs are growths of bone on the underside of the heel bone. They can occur without pain; pain may result when inflammation develops at the point where the spur forms. Both heel pain and heel spurs are often associated with plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the long band of connective tissue running from the heel to the ball of the foot. Treatments may range from exercise and custom-made orthotics to anti-inflammatory medication or cortisone injections.

Ingrown nails are nails whose corners or sides dig painfully into the skin, often causing infection. They are frequently caused by improper nail trimming but also by shoe pressure, injury, fungus infection, heredity, and poor foot structure. Toenails should be trimmed straight across, slightly longer than the end of the toe, with toenail clippers. If the ingrown portion of the nail is painful or infected, your podiatric physician may remove the affected portion; if the condition reoccurs frequently, your podiatrist may permanently remove the nail.

Neuromas are enlarged, benign growths of nerves, most commonly between the third and fourth toes. They are caused by bones and other tissue rubbing against and irritating the nerves. Abnormal bone structure or pressure from ill-fitting shoes also can create the condition, which can result in pain, burning, tingling, or numbness between the toes and in the ball of the foot. Conservative treatment can include padding, taping, orthotic devices, and cortisone injections, but surgical removal of the growth is sometimes necessary.

Warts are caused by a virus, which enters the skin through small cuts and infects the skin. Children, especially teenagers, tend to be more susceptible to warts than adults. Most warts are harmless and benign, even though painful and unsightly. Warts often come from walking barefooted on dirty surfaces or littered ground. There are several simple procedures which your podiatric physician might use to remove warts.


Top Ten Foot Health Tips

Diseases, disorders and disabilities of the foot or ankle affect the quality of life and mobility of millions of Americans. However, the general public and even many physicians are unaware of the important relationship between foot health and overall health and well-being. With this in mind, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) would like to share a few tips to help keep feet healthy.


1. Don’t ignore foot pain—it’s not normal. If the pain persists, see a podiatric physician.

2. Inspect your feet regularly. Pay attention to changes in color and temperature of your feet. Look for thick or discolored nails (a sign of developing fungus), and check for cracks or cuts in the skin. Peeling or scaling on the soles of feet could indicate athlete’s foot. Any growth on the foot is not considered normal.


3.
Wash your feet regularly, especially between the toes, and be sure to dry them completely.

4. Trim toenails straight across, but not too short. Be careful not to cut nails in corners or on the sides; it can lead to ingrown toenails. Persons with diabetes, poor circulation, or heart problems should not treat their own feet because they are more prone to infection.

5. Make sure that your shoes fit properly. Purchase new shoes later in the day when feet tend to be at their largest and replace worn out shoes as soon as possible.

6. Select and wear the right shoe for the activity that you are engaged in (i.e., running shoes for running).

7. Alternate shoes—don’t wear the same pair of shoes every day.

8. Avoid walking barefooted—your feet will be more prone to injury and infection. At the beach or when wearing sandals, always use sunblock on your feet just as on the rest of your body.

9. Be cautious when using home remedies for foot ailments; self-treatment can often turn a minor problem into a major one.

10. If you are a person with diabetes, it is vital that you see a podiatric physician at least once a year for a check-up.

Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle While Pregnant

Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle While Pregnant

Although you may hear of pregnant women who crave ice cream and only want to subsist on that while pregnant, this is not always the best decision for a woman and her baby. It is as important-if not more so-to maintain a healthy lifestyle while pregnant, by way of a nutritious diet. This article will outline the basics of a lifestyle beneficial to both you and your baby.

First, let us look at the amount of food you should eat while pregnant. Sure, you are basically “eating for two,” but this does not always mean that you need to eat double of your regular portions. It is estimated that you only need to consume 300 more calories per day than usual. Also, it is not good to starve yourself while pregnant. Don’t think that being on a low-calorie diet is a good thing-this may cause your body to break down your stored fats, which produces ketones throughout the mother’s blood. Ketones can be carried from the mother to the child and result in mental retardation in the fetus.

To get your 300 extra calories each day, don’t reach for those Twinkies. The consumption of beneficial vitamins and minerals is hugely important for a pregnant woman and her unborn baby. Three nutrients that pregnant women should be sure to ingest are folic acid, calcium, and iron. Luckily, these three ingredients are prime members of prenatal vitamins.

Folic acid is important because it helps protect the baby from neural tube disorders, most commonly spina bifida. Spina bifida is when the inside of the spinal column is exposed, resulting in anything from paralysis to incontinence. Taking calcium supplements is a great idea for a pregnant woman because the formation of your baby’s bones leaches calcium from your own body. Consuming extra calcium can help repair your bone density as well as provide the mineral for your child. Also, an abundance of iron aids your body in carrying oxygen-saturated blood. As your baby basically breathes through the oxygen contained in your bloodstream, it is important to provide your child with highly oxygenated blood.

To take in your extra calories yet maintain a healthy lifestyle, you should take in at least seven portions of fruits and vegetables daily. These produce items tend to have high amounts of the vitamins and minerals you and your baby need. You should also take in whole wheat or enriched grain products. Things like bread and cereal, if enriched, hold a good amount of folic acid. Also, dairy items such as milk and cheese can provide you with calcium for bone density. Lastly, pregnant women should eat 10 more grams of protein than they usually do when not pregnant.

Living a healthy lifestyle by way of maintaining a nutrient-rich diet is beneficial for both you and your unborn baby. However, not all health issues in newborns can be prevented with healthy eating. Sometimes, a tragic accident caused by medical malpractice can bring harm to your precious newborn. For more information on birth injuries, check out this birth injury specialist law firm.

Resveratrol and Cardiovascular Health

Resveratrol and Cardiovascular Health

It has been previously mentioned how Resveratrol was believed to be found only in red wine. Well, red wine is notorious for its contributions in keeping one’s heart healthy, and Resveratrol is known to have multi-modalities of heart-tending actions.

Have you ever heard of “The French Paradox”? If you haven’t, well, it is a widely used expression to mean the direct association between alcohol consumption and fatty diets. See, most French people smoke and their diets contain high levels of saturated fat. However, they are also lovers of red wine, in fact a part of their daily drill, and red wine is known to protect our bodies from cardiovascular diseases. The secret is in their consumption of red wine which contains resveratrol. Resveratrol is a phytoalexin produced by some plants to ward off pathogens like bacteria or fungi. Recent advances in technology allow Resveratrol to be synthesized chemically.

Since red wine already contains high levels of Resveratrol, what makes this cardiovascular disease prevention all the more rapid is the presence of flavonoids, working hand in hand with Resveratrol.

Red wine contains more Resveratrol than regular grape juice because of the fermentation process it undergoes. Grape skin contains the highest natural concentration of Resveratrol. Other sources of Resveratrol include peanuts, eucalyptus leaves and Japanese knotweed with Japanese knotweed being the primary source for supplement extracts.

Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant which means it rids the body of harmful free radicals that might cause cancer. Aside from that, it also helps keep cancer cells and phytoestrogen from fast food at bay. But perhaps it’s most beneficial effects include the strengthening of cell tissue and lean muscle. In relation to this of course is the cardiovascular system.

The cardiovascular system for the transport of nutrients, gases, hormones, blood cells, nitrogen waste products and so on, to and from cells in the body to keep it in homeostasis. In layman’s terms, it is responsible for the circulation of blood around the body. The cardiovascular system is also very susceptible to disease. Heart disease in particular is the leading cause of death in the United States, England, Canada and Wales and is quickly becoming a pandemic due to the nature of our daily dietary consumption. Statistics show that heart disease claims the life of one person every 34 seconds in the United States alone.

Aside from better muscular function, resveratrol also serves as a blood thinning agent, minimizing system damaging clots that form because of impurities in blood. This in turn helps in avoiding damage to the blood vessels that are common in occurrence when blood clots break free and circulate.

Resveratrol is indeed a wonderful discovery in the field of medicine. Although its benefits are certainly worth noting, its effects are best supplemented with proper exercise and a controlled diet. Taking resveratrol through wine and supplements while maintaining or perhaps even maximizing your diet will not assure you the benefits. Neither will it benefit if you overcompensate your existing diet with a bigger dosage. Everything in life is best in small doses and this includes the most nutritious food, and the best medicine.

There is a big difference in cardiovascular health protection among alcohol drinkers. When those who preferred liquor, wine and beer were cross referenced, studies found out that those who preferred wine lived the longest lives. The answer is quite simple: liquors and beers do not contain as much Resveratrol as wine, especially red wine. Also, liquors and beers are harmful to the gastrointestinal tract; they abuse our livers and kidneys when not taken in moderation.

However, there are also confusions regarding this. A lot of people still associate the presence of Resveratrol with other alcoholic drinks (not just wine). And that is the reason why the more recent pills and capsules developed to compact Resveratrol were flooded with information on how Resveratrol originally comes from grapevines and not from the alcohol content.

Child Nutrition Books

Child Nutrition Books

There are many child nutrition books out in the market today. Parents who want to provide healthy food and make sure that their children are getting proper nutrition are a very susceptible market for books like these. While many books provide good information, it usually isn’t as complicated as many of the book covers and teasers lead a consumer to believe. Parents end up spending a lot of money for some pretty basic information.

When purchasing child nutrition books, try to get books that address your questions. Sometimes books go in depth into good, but unnecessary information for the typical parent. For example, some books discuss healthy eating and how it helps your children’s immune system, and then write chapters and chapters about child diseases, even rare diseases. While it’s good to know about illnesses, you may not have gotten your money’s worth in terms of the information you wanted.

Get child nutrition books that present their content as matter of fact, and make sure the price of the book is practical for your budget. You don’t want to spend too much on books and not have anything else for healthy food, right? So stick to a book that presents the basics. One that is easy to read is also advisable, as you don’t want to get too caught up in technical terms.

A good child nutrition book should make you really understand what healthy eating is, and not just tell you what it is you should eat. While giving recommendations or food suggestions are definitely good bonuses, after reading the book you should be able to know what would make a healthy and balanced meal for your child. If you encounter a book that says it presents the children’s food pyramid inside, you’re very likely to have a section of that book that discusses the ins and outs of healthy eating and how to follow the pyramid.

Good child nutrition books point you in the right direction of healthy eating, and they should help you understand your children. Healthy eating can change depending on age and developmental stages, and a good book should be able to help you understand this aspect as well. It should also discuss the challenges and health issues some children face, and how to prevent these issues from arising.

Finally, do your own research on child nutrition books. Read book reviews or ask friends who have the book if they can leaf through it first. That way you will know if it is really something worth spending money on!

Sports Betting

Sports Betting

Whether you are at your local track, playing online, or just betting a group of co-workers or friends on a game, there are several factors to keep in mind.


With so much sports betting being done online these days and sports betting online being so accessible to everyone, money management is a must! Unless you own a bank, and even if you do, you can’t afford to throw your whole bankroll on a game and if you lose, just grab another. You need to limit yourself to what you can and will bet. Be stingy! Allow yourself only enough to equal to what you can afford to lose over the entire season. Typically you need to spend only 5% of that stash. This is probably the hardest thing about being successful at wagering over a period of time. Sure, every once in a while spurge and double your bet if it is on a strong play and not what you want to be a strong play. Two things do not exist in the real world…. locks and ‘sure things’.


You must have discipline, as this is the foundation you must have in order to properly and successfully manage your money and place wise wagers. You lose discipline you lose your money. Example: You have an excellent winning streak, 8 wins and 1 loss. You are now 7 units up. Whoops! Now you lose 3 in a row, but you are still up 4 units. Ah, but now it is easy to lose your focus and forget your previous wins. It is easy to just double up on a couple of bets to try and recoup your losses, but what if you lose those bets, too? You’re only human and you will want to chase those losses, but if you stick to your original budget and plan, it will pay off and it will all make sense at the end of the season. Go ahead and try it. Stick to your plan, but write down all the times you wanted to chase your losses through the season. You can see what your bankroll would have been if you chased. Profits do speak volumes.


So, go ahead and visit your favorite online sports betting site. Just remember to stay in control of your money.
