Expert Panel Roundtable: Improving Equitable Outcomes in Maternal Care

“Most women in the U.S. are not dying during childbirth because of the complexity of their health conditions, but because of the barriers they faced in accessing high-quality maternal care—particularly those who were poor or faced racial discrimination.”⁠

2010 Amnesty International report ; Deadly Delivery: The Maternal Health Care Crisis in the USA⁠

According to Harvard Public Health:⁠

Starting in 2008, human rights groups around the world began calling on the U.S. to do more to keep its mothers from dying. The United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) expressed concern about inequities in maternal mortality and recommended that steps be taken to improve access to maternal health care, family planning, and sexuality education and information.⁠

⁠A 2012 Amnesty International report declared that these steps weren’t enough: “Preventable maternal mortality can result from or reflect violations of a variety of human rights, including the right to life, the right to freedom from discrimination, and the right to the highest attainable standard of health.” Having ratified two key international treaties guaranteeing these rights, the authors wrote, the U.S. government should be held accountable.⁠

******⁠

We have a system that is not adequately caring for our mothers, particularly black mothers. This is a fact that needs to be heard far and wide, and we need all parties to take part in a conversation to figure out the best way to deal with this crisis.⁠

Parenting a Child with Special Needs

Most mothers adore their children and will make whatever sacrifices are necessary to ensure that their child’s needs and wants are met, but mothers who have children with special needs are different. The selflessness these mothers often exhibit can become problematic in a myriad of ways.

Sister Act: The Story of E&P

The intricate dance between estrogen and progesterone in our menstrual cycles is a delicate balance. When that balance is lost we can see it’s impact play out in various ways in our day to day life.

The Power of Poo

Constipation is defined in many ways, but it is typically seen as having fewer than 3 bowel movements a week. Constipation may also make itself known through harder than normal stool, difficulty passing stool, decreased appetite, pain, abdominal distension, and foul body odor (especially in children).

Healing a Cesarean Scar

The body is a self-healing, self-regulating unit. It’s pretty incredible. But wound closure isn’t the only thing that needs to heal after a Cesarean delivery, so there are a few extra things to consider that I encourage all of my patients to do.

Expert Q&A: Improve Your Posture

Whether standing, sitting, walking, driving, breastfeeding, or carrying a child we all have improvements that can be made in our posture.

Poor posture can negatively impact a persons health. Back problems are an obvious result of poor posture with back pain being the most common problem. Poor posture can affect our health in other ways too. For example, slouching can give rise to jaw pain and headache. Poor posture places more strain on the muscles and joints and can lead to arthritis. Poor posture can also affect breathing, and impair both the circulatory and digestive systems.

Most people have poor posture and it is visible in a variety of different activities we do every day. Join us for an Expert Q&A with Dr. Lindsay Mumma as she offers tips on how to improve your own posture during various everyday activities.
