As Puerto Rico rapidly industrialized from the late 1940s until the 1970s, the social, political, and economic landscape changed profoundly. In the realm of heath care, the development of medical education, new medical technologies, and a new faith in science radically redefined childbirth and its practice. What had traditionally been a home-based, family-oriented process, assisted by women and midwives and "accomplished" by mothers, became a medicalized, hospital-based procedure, "accomplished" and directed by biomedical, predominantly male, practitioners, and, ultimately reconfigured, after the 1980s, into a technocratic model of childbirth, driven by doctors' fears of malpractice suits and hospitals' corporate concerns. Pushing in Silence charts the medicalization of childbirth in Puerto Rico and demonstrates how biomedicine is culturally constructed within regional and historical contexts. Prior to 1950, registered midwives on the island outnumbered registered doctors by two to one, and they attended well over half of all deliveries. Isabel M. Cordova traces how, over the next quarter-century, midwifery almost completely disappeared as state programs led by scientifically trained experts and organized by bureaucratic institutions restructured and formalized birthing practices. Only after cesarean rates skyrocketed in the 1980s and 1990s did midwifery make a modest return through the practices of five newly trained midwives. This history, which mirrors similar patterns in the United States and elsewhere, adds an important new chapter to the development of medicine and technology in Latin America.

This book explores how conditions for childbearing are changing in the 21st century under the impact of new biomedical technologies. Selective reproductive technologies (SRTs) - technologies that aim to prevent or promote the birth of particular kinds of children - are increasingly widespread across the globe. Wahlberg and Gammeltoft bring together a collection of essays providing unique ethnographic insights on how SRTs are made available within different cultural, socio-economic and regulatory settings and how people perceive and make use of these new possibilities as they envision and try to form their future lives. Topics covered include sex-selective abortions, termination of pregnancies following detection of fetal anomalies during prenatal screening, the development of preimplantation genetic diagnosis techniques as well as the screening of potential gamete donors by egg agencies and sperm banks. This is invaluable reading for scholars of medical anthropology, medical sociology and science and technology studies, as well as for the fields of gender studies, reproductive health and genetic disease research.

Millions of women suffer from obstetric fistula, a catastrophic childbirth complication that exists today mainly in the world's poorest countries. Fistulas are created by the prolonged pressure of the fetal head in the birth canal during obstructed labor, which grievously injures a woman's bladder, leaving her incontinent. With a fistula, a woman's life revolves around futile attempts to control her condition and the stigma associated with it. Abandoned by their loved ones, ostracized from their communities, and cut off from modern surgical care, which can repair fistulas and return patients to full health, these women suffer wretchedly.Based on over 20 years of personal experience with fistula patients in multiple African countries, Dr. L. Lewis Wall's Tears for My Sisters describes the ancient history of obstetric fistula, tracing it as far back as ancient Egypt. An expert in repairing obstetric fistula, Dr. Wall explains how these injuries occur and how Western medicine developed the technical capacity to overcome obstructed labor and repair fistulas. Arguing that obstetric fistula results from a general disregard for women's human rights and reproductive health around the globe, he lays bare the obstacles that poor women face in getting emergency obstetric care. Finally, he presents a solution to this problem based on the inspiring story of Drs. Reginald and Catherine Hamlin, who created a hospital system in Ethiopia to care for fistula patients, improve health care, and eradicate these injuries.Providing these women with a much-needed voice, this compassionate book is the first to tell the comprehensive story of this tragic but preventable condition. It is compelling reading for everyone interested in women's health, reproductive rights, the history of medicine, and social justice.

Advances in assisted reproductive technology are producing a new world whose boundaries and implications have yet to be fully explored and understood. New advances are announced and hit the headlines with dizzying regularity, triggering the hopes and aspirations of some, and the fears of others. What is possible? What are the implications? What should be permissible? Who should decide?Medically assisted reproductive techniques were developed to treat sterility and infertility. However, in parallel this has created a demand for applications outside the fields for which these technologies were originally intended. This book explores the issues that surround medically assisted reproduction by addressing them from the perspective of four key areas: the mystery of procreation and the enigma of origin and where we come from; the question of difference and alterity in procreation (be it the breaking down of the notion that one comes from two in heterologous procreation to the aspirations for same-sex procreation, or the blurring of chronology and generations through cryoconservation); the place of destiny, including how to think about individual destinies in an age of increasingly accessible gene sequencing paired with a growing link between procreation and prediction; and an exploration of how clinicians and professionals can respond to the subjective experiences of those who resort to medically assisted reproduction, and the singularity of each person's response to the difficult and complex questions it raises.

Biopsychosocial factors are integral to all aspects of healthcare but perhaps nowhere more so than in obstetrics, gynaecology and women's health. This is probably because so much of what occurs in the specialty involves dramatic, life-changing events - from pregnancy and childbirth to menopause and malignancy. This text was planned to inform clinical care and improve the psychological element of women's healthcare. The content covers a wide spectrum of care, including chapters on all the major subspecialties. The two editors, between them, have long-term and broad experience of writing and researching the areas covered in this text. Obstetricians, gynaecologists, midwives, psychiatrists, psychologists and those in many other areas of healthcare, including healthcare managers, should read this book. It is hoped that a distillate of its content will be incorporated in general and subspecialty training curricula to optimise the future care given to patients, partners and offspring.

Women who experience postpartum mood disorders may feel that they are all alone, but postpartum depression actually may affect as many as one in five new mothers. Janice first experienced extreme anxiety attacks about three months after her delivery; the first time was after a family party: 'Out of nowhere I felt like a freight train came through the house and knocked me down.' Monique didn't share her feelings with her family, and felt that it was unacceptable in the black community to seek therapeutic help. 'I was taking everything to the extreme. I thought I was going nuts inside ... I was pretty much being held hostage by my obsessive compulsive need to monitor him.' Thomas recalls that after a difficult birth and recovery his wife Carol grew distant and seemed uninterested in her baby. But neither he nor the professionals they consulted realized that she had become suicidal--she eventually hung herself.

The interplay between mind and body is a rapidly developing area of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, growing in prominence as many areas of medicine recognise the importance of understanding the physical, mental, and social aspects of complex conditions. Clinical Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology: A Patient-Centred Biopsychosocial Approach is the fundamental work facilitating the management of women's disease conditions resulting from psychosomatic or mind-body interactions routinely encountered by clinicians. Authored by a world-renowned group of contributors who have led a transformative approach to the way services to women are approached, Clinical Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology comprehensively addresses the biological, psychological, social and cultural factors leading to disease manifestations. Including methods for prevention, detection and treatment, the text is supported by thirty case studies taken from real-life situations to support learning and guide clinical practice. Including detailed chapters on the scientific basic of the clinical psychosomatic concept, prevention of morbidity and mortality from cancer and obesity, pregnancy, premenstrual disorders, sexuality and psychosomatic implications of migration and cultural issues, this title is a highly topical and much-needed guide to addressing clinical conditions that compromise women's health as well as their mental and social wellbeing.

The identification and interpretation of the signs of breast cancer in mammographic images from screening programs can be very difficult due to the subtle and diversified appearance of breast disease. This book presents new image processing and pattern recognition techniques for computer-aided detection and diagnosis of breast cancer in its various forms. The main goals are: (1) the identification of bilateral asymmetry as an early sign of breast disease which is not detectable by other existing approaches; and (2) the detection and classification of masses and regions of architectural distortion, as benign lesions or malignant tumors, in a unified framework that does not require accurate extraction of the contours of the lesions. The innovative aspects of the work include the design and validation of landmarking algorithms, automatic Tabar masking procedures, and various feature descriptors for quantification of similarity and for contour independent classification of mammographic lesions. Characterization of breast tissue patterns is achieved by means of multidirectional Gabor filters. For the classification tasks, pattern recognition strategies, including Fisher linear discriminant analysis, Bayesian classifiers, support vector machines, and neural networks are applied using automatic selection of features and cross-validation techniques. Computer-aided detection of bilateral asymmetry resulted in accuracy up to 0.94, with sensitivity and specificity of 1 and 0.88, respectively. Computer-aided diagnosis of automatically detected lesions provided sensitivity of detection of malignant tumors in the range of [0.70, 0.81] at a range of falsely detected tumors of [0.82, 3.47] per image. The techniques presented in this work are effective in detecting and characterizing various mammographic signs of breast disease.

Dead Mums Don't Cry documents one woman's remarkable struggle to stop mothers in her country from dying. She's Grace Kodindo--an obstetrician in the poverty-stricken central African country of Chad. Women in Chad have a 1 in 11 chance of dying during pregnancy or in childbirth. The risk for women in the UK is 1 in 5100. Cutting maternal mortality by 75% by 2015 was one of the eight Millennium Development Goals set by 189 countries in 2000. Five years on, progress is far behind schedule--and this film reveals it's slowest on the goals that affect women and children.

"Protéger l'homme "au moment où il arrive au port de la vie", telle est la mission que les gouvernements français, de l'Ancien Régime à la IIIe République, assignent aux sages-femmes. Accompagnatrices des mères et désormais membres du corps médical, les sages-femmes se sont constituées au cours du XIXe siècle en profession scientifique, détentrice d'un savoir riche et varié. Partout en France, leur formation a occupé administrateurs et médecins, faisant naître des dizaines d'écoles départementales, dont le dynamisme n'a souvent eu que peu à envier à l'école de l'Hospice de la Maternité de Paris. Du cours hospitalier à la véritable école-maternité, les institutions de formation ont accueilli en un siècle des dizaines de milliers de jeunes femmes qui, leur diplôme en main, se sont faites dans les campagnes les "institutrices du système de santé" français. Lettrées, compétentes et respectées, les sages-femmes ont ainsi fait bénéficier leurs patientes d'une qualité de soins acquise aux meilleures sources du savoir obstétrical. Légitimées par leur formation et le monopole que l'État leur accorde face aux matrones, elles ont mis au monde l'essentiel de la population française, ont vacciné des générations de nouveau-nés et se sont faites les chantres de l'hygiène pasteurienne dès ses débuts. L'histoire de l'émergence de ce corps professionnel, né d'une volonté politique et du consentement des accoucheuses, est riche d'enseignements pour les enjeux contemporains de la naissance et de ses acteurs."--Page 4 of cover.

There is a documented link between fetal nutrition and the development of disease risk in adult life. Including the early postnatal period, during which a newborn continues to grow rapidly influenced by environmental factors, suggests that individuals are subject to risks for more than just the fetal period. Fetal and Early Postnatal Programming and its Influence on Adult Health focuses on interrelated aspects of cellular programming related to early nutrition and this potential global health problem.
