Both expectant families and childbirth professionals alike would like nothing more than pregnancy and birth to remain uncomplicated and proceed normally. We can celebrate when that happens but we have a responsibility to also teach and share about some of the variations from normal that may come up during pregnancy and birth.
Cara Terreri, the Community Manager for Lamaze International’s parent blog, Giving Birth with Confidence, is looking for women’s input on pregnancy complications for a new series that she will be running in the coming months.
If you have had personal experience with one or more of the following (or know students, clients or patients who do) and would like to participate, please contact the blog manager, Cara Terreri at email@example.com.
- Preeclampsia/eclampsia & HELLP
- Placental abruption/hemorrhage
- Placenta previa/accreta
- Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR)
- Incompetent/weakened cervix
- Hyperemis Gravidarum
- Preterm labor
I look forward to reading this upcoming series and sharing the stories with my students and clients. Thank you for any help you might provide.
