The second trimester abortions are called D&E, which stands for dilation and evacuation. These are preformed up to the twenty-fifth week of pregnancy, and usually take ten to twenty minutes. The way they are preformed is the woman is given absorbent dilators, which open up the cervix and absorb the fluids. After this is left in overnight the woman then is ready for the evacuation stage. The fetus is easily removed with instruments and suction.
Ectopic means “in an abnormal position” (Ectopic). An ectopic pregnancy is when the ovum is fertilized and begins to develop somewhere other than the uterus. Diagnosis of an Ectopic Pregnancy In order to know if a women’s pregnancy has become ectopic the doctor will do a few different things, such as, a pelvic exam, a blood test, or an ultrasound. A pelvic exam would determine the size of your uterus and feel for growths in the stomach. The doctor would notify a woman of any abnormalities, although, the doctor would also have to pass the woman through more exams to be positive.
Although you do have a risk of running into this problem, how likely is it for your child to encounter them. Invitro fertilization is an effective means of getting pregnant for many women. Birth Defects Birth defects are the most common issues that face while conduction In-Vitro fertilization. The Controversies are whether this process contributes to sick babies or malformed babies. “Women who give birth after IVF treatment are up to five times as likely to suffer from serious complications, researchers have found.” (Macrae, 2014).
Older pregnant women who usually have more complications during pregnancy benefit from genetic screening. Doctors usually recommend “more invasive procedures” in which actual fetal cells are collected from the womb’s amniotic fluid or placenta . (Golden) Receiving the results from the tests, she can determine whether it is safe for her to continue with the pregnancy, especially since some tests provide accuracy as high as ninety-nine percent. (Golden) Unfortunately, not all test results come out positive. Approximately ninety-five percent of couples who receive “bad” news from genetic scr... ... middle of paper ... ...nsequences, especially because of genetic screening.
Pregnancy is the fertilization and development of one or more offspring, known as an embryo or fetus, in a woman’s uterus. Pregnancy occurs when the ovum released from the female reproductive organ is fertilized by the sperm from the male reproductive organ. Based on several studies conducted in the United States, it has been proven that about 10% of women age range from 15-44 facing difficulties in getting pregnant or in another word suffering from infertility. However, development in the medical technologies such as in-vitro fertilization, surgery and drugs to stimulate ovulation, have the capability to overcome these problems (Simon, 2013). Even though nowadays there is huge range of development in medical field, there are still some pregnant woman suffers due to pregnancy related diseases that resulted from inappropriate prenatal care.

Furthermore, a woman would not know the baby’s health, including the amount of amniotic fluid surrounding the baby. Woman all over the globe faced problems with pregnancy, until the Ultrasound was introduced. Ultrasound is an imaging technique that use high-frequency sound waves, inaudible to the human ear, to produce somewhat precise images of the insides of the abdomen. A device called the transducer is used to transmit the sound waves through the abdomen. Specifically Prenatal and Fetal ultrasounds, which view the inside of a pregnant woman’s abdomen and the fetus.
What communicative strategies do sonographers draw upon to offer reassurance to pregnant women during the first stage/booking encounter (see Chapter 5)? 3. How are reassurances of normal foetal features communicated by sonographers to pregnant women during the 20-week gestation stage (see Chapter 6)? 4. How do sonographers provide explanations about risk and uncertainty and respond to questions raised by pregnant women during the ultrasound scan encounters (see Chapter 7)?1.4 Overview of chapters The rest of this chapter provides an outline (context and scene setting) of the research area that is followed by a background of the U.K. maternity care provision.

In the egg retrieval process females receive blood and ultrasound testing is completed every 1-3 days to check the development of the follicles in the ovaries. In this process the women has minor surgery. This surgery is called follicular aspiration. Follicular aspiration occurs to remove the eggs from the women’s body. The doctor inserts a small needle through the vagina.
