It was a one-in-a-million miracle when a baby girl was delivered successfully despite growing in her mother’s ovary rather than the womb. This miraculous delivery of the girl was said to be one in 100,000 successfully deliveries in which babies grows outside the womb. The baby spent almost nine months inside her mother’s right ovary and was delivered successfully after a Caesarean.
The doctor Andrew Miller who operated Durga the miraculous baby said, its an extraordinary and unusual delivery which has been successfully taken out, its really very rare if anyone would have seen a ovarian pregnancy as we have here. The baby was born healthy weighing 61b 3oz.
Medical experts also said that such Ovarian Pregnancies are one of the rarest variations of ectopic pregnancies and also have a risk of loss of life for the mother. Due to this undue risk in most of the cases pregnant women opt for abortion. It was shocker for all when doctors found that the baby squeezed into the right ovary and was growing in the ovary. It was a miraculous moment and happy when the baby finally was delivered live and healthy.
If you are an expectant then try to beat your stress before it gets worse. In a new research it was found that stress during pregnancy can double the risk of having a stillbirth. The study has also found that stress may directly lead to stillbirths which have been seen in many cases.
In a test done on monkeys it was seen that stress hormones might reduce the blood flow to the placenta, thereby restricting the supply of oxygen to the foetus. Doctors have suggested that one should give proper attention towards the emotional health of pregnant women’s and always try to keep them in a stress free mood.
Even those women’s who are in the professional front should be given flexible working hours, so that they don’t over stress themselves during pregnancy period. Though in this fast and furious life, stress has become a part and parcel of everyone’s life, but sometimes this stress could ruin one’s dreams and expectations.
What is Stillbirth?
A stillbirth means “quiet birth” which occurs when a foetus which has died in the uterus or during labor or delivery exits a woman’s body. The term is often used in distinction to live birth or miscarriage. Most stillbirths occur in full term pregnancies.
Abortion rates are moving at a great pace in Scotland, last year’s figures have shown a record number of such abortion cases. It is known that in 1968 Britain has legalised abortion, but with the rate at which this trend is moving has soon become a serious issue.
If we look into the figures we can find that about 13,703 cases of abortions were carried out last year, which nears an average of 38 abortions per day. These figures were far more than the figures of previous years. All these figures show how rapidly abortion is becoming a part of the lives for people of Scotland.
The most shocking fact which emerged from these rising abortion cases was that, about 372 patients having abortions were under 16 years of age. Other than that, the rate of abortion was highest among the age group of 16-19 years (24.9 per 1000) and 20-24 years (24.5 per 1000) at the second spot. Among all this, the number of late abortions dropped last year with only 44 terminations carried out at 20 weeks or beyond.
The cases of abortions emerged more in poor areas, with 17.4 per 1000 in such highly deprived areas compared to only 9.6 per 1000 in less deprived areas. Now its a huge ask for the government and health departments to act bravely in order to tackle this growing trend. If this soaring rate of abortion will continue in the same way then soon abortion will become a fashion in Scotland.
The first eco-housing fair in UK which will start on in the month of August will showcase over 50 houses of the future. These future homes will take shape in the outskirts of Inverness; these future homes will not only feature the design of homes in future, but will also exhibit the different styles of interior designing to look for.
In this futuristic fair the builders will deliver their expert skills in giving a new dimension to the construction sector. This fair will feature about 54 show homes, out of which 40% will be affordable while remaining 60% will be available for sale.
It was hardly felt by experts and people to make affordable home more qualitative and well designed. Taking out a key point out, Fiona Porteous (Highland Housing Fair Project Manager) said, “Given fossil fuels are fast running out, and the current housing model we have in the UK is just not sustainable.
She further said it’s the need of the hour to make a change in the way new homes are designed, so that they could be made from sustainable resource in the future and will thus do not require traditional energy resources”. It is thought that this upcoming fair will definitely attract a huge crowd, giving them the chance to have a glimpse of the future homes; it will also give a new dimension to the present construction style which need a makeover.
Scotland is facing a serious drought of epilepsy nurses these days, giving a real tough time for the patients suffering from this disease. Now the situation is such that there is a great need for a better care to these epilepsy sufferers before the situation gets worse.
It was seen that not one health board in Scotland has the required number of specialist nurses. The patients are forced to go for other health boards to get the needed treatment and care. Expressing his views over this serious issue, Susan Douglas-Scott Chief Executive of Epilepsy Scotland said, “Managing epilepsy is hard work and yet Scotland has just 24 nurses who specialises in caring for people with epilepsy”.
These nurses use to treat the epilepsy patients with great care and support when ever a need arises. It is a harsh fact that no health board yet meets the recommended numbers of specialist nurses which is required. These specialist nurses deals with a lot of works relating to epilepsy, from epilepsy management, treatment, pre-conception planning and also deliver training for GPs. As per the Joint Epilepsy Council for the UK and Ireland one nurse is required for a population of 100,000. And to match with this target Scotland would be requiring three times more specialist nurses.
The government and health boards have a big ask on their hands to meet the required number of such specialist nurses.
