Brazilian women rebel against cesarean births

first_imgBecause a C-section entails major abdominal surgery, risks for the mother include infections, complications from anesthesia, hemorrhage and dangerous clots, and a longer recovery. For the baby, the procedure is linked to increases in premature births, breathing problems, and generally lower health scores related to depriving babies of the stimulation they normally experience as they travel through the birth canal.The reasons behind Brazil’s high rates are many. Experts say a longstanding interventionist approach to vaginal births made them more painful and stressful than necessary. All this gave C-sections a reputation as being a more predictable, safe, painless and modern way to deliver.Brazil’s statistics worry Maria do Carmo Leal, a researcher at the National Public Health School at the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation. She is analyzing a survey of 24,000 birthing mothers across the country and said the high C-Section rate reflects an extreme manifestation of a medical culture that treats delivery as a health problem and not as a natural process.“Here, when a woman is going to give birth, even natural birth, the first thing many hospitals do is tie her to the bed by putting an IV in her arm, so she can’t walk, can’t take a bath, can’t hug her husband. The use of drugs to accelerate contractions is very common, as are episiotomies,” she said. “What you get is a lot of pain, and a horror of childbirth. This makes a cesarean a dream for many women.” “We’re making a big effort now, offering good prenatal care, a place women trust, information that’s pertinent, so women can make their decision,” said National Health Care Secretary Helvecio Magalhaes. “We’re creating incentives for natural birth.”The program’s broad approach creates maternity hospitals focused only on pregnancy, delivery and post-partum care, reaches out to private health care plans to discuss birth options, proposes curriculum revisions in medical schools, and launches educational campaigns aimed at informing mothers of the pros and cons of surgery versus natural childbirth, Magalhaes said.In the city of Rio, a similar program invites all mothers delivering through the public health system to visit the hospital where they’ll give birth. The question _ C-sections or natural birth? _ came up in a group of 10 pregnant women during a recent tour of a brand new public maternity hospital.“I never wanted a natural child birth, no way!” said Zelia Leite Alves, who was accompanying her pregnant daughter on the visit. “I wasn’t born to feel that kind of pain.”She did her best to talk her daughter, Claudia Larissa, into following in her footsteps. To her surprise, the 20-year-old was determined to have a natural birth, as long as it was safe. 5 ways to recognize low testosterone In response, women organized marches in 13 cities. In Sao Paulo, they bared their breasts and carried posters reading “Our Children, Our Decision” while chanting “Brazil, don’t follow Rio’s example.” They enacted natural births using dolls covered with Portuguese words reading “Born Free.”After the resolution was reversed by court order July 30, about 200 people gathered in Rio to celebrate, with yet more banners and painted bellies defending women’s freedom to choose how their babies are born. Similar marches took place in 28 other Brazilian cities, where women also defended their right to reject episiotomies _ cutting the vaginal opening to prevent tearing _ and to have company during the birth. A 2005 law says women should have a companion of their choice during labor, but it’s frequently not respected.The World Health Organization warns against unnecessary surgeries, saying that while there is no ideal C-section rate, the percentage should hover between 10 and 15 percent. In China, which also has a very high cesarean rate, 46 percent of babies were delivered via the surgery in 2008, the latest year for which data is available. In the US, more than a third of births are by C-section. Private clinics are often happy to make that dream come true by turning delivery into something akin to a weekend retreat in a birth-themed five-star hotel.At the Perinatal Clinic in Rio de Janeiro, mothers can get free hairstyling, manicures and makeup sessions, and for a fee, can have their rooms decorated in a safari or teddy bear motif. Once the new mom is ready for visitors, a catering service complete with waiters can also be arranged.“There are patients who absolutely refuse to have natural childbirth, well-informed patients who maintain this position out of fear,” said Paulo Marinho, the medical director at Perinatal. “It’s a cultural situation. I’ve seen it develop over generations.”From the doctors’ perspective, the issue comes down to familiarity and economics, said Moraes Filho, of the Brazilian Gynecologists and Obstetrics Association.Brazilian women expect the doctor who sees them throughout their pregnancy to be the one who delivers their baby, not whoever happens to be on call. Second, health care plans generally pay practitioners the same for a C-section taking 30-40 minutes as for a natural birth that can last an entire day. Associated PressRIO DE JANEIRO (AP) – From the day Mariana Migon discovered she was pregnant, she knew she wanted a natural birth. So just weeks before her due date, the first-time mother abandoned her obstetrician, her health plan and her private hospital room for the free public hospital in downtown Rio _ where she had a real chance at a vaginal birth.“If I’d stayed with my health care plan and my doctor, I would have had a C-section,” said Migon, as she sat beside the incubator holding her baby girl, who was premature.

As patients in doctors’ offices and street protesters reject the pressure to have surgical births, the federal government is investing billions of dollars into a natural childbirth campaign, including the building of hospitals devoted to maternal care.“We need to have a serious discussion in this country to see what can be done to change this culture,” said Olimpio Moraes Filho, one of the head doctors with the Brazilian Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. “Women are starting to rebel, and they should.”A tipping point came in July, when a medical regulating agency in Rio de Janeiro forbade doctors from doing home births and labor coaches known as doulas from helping out in hospitals, saying “there are many complications possible during labor that require immediate medical attention.” New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Comments   Share   “I have to admit, I’m not calm at all. It’s my first time and I’m anxious. I’m very afraid of the contractions. But this helps,” she said of the visit. “I can see this was made for us, this space is for mothers. I know the staff will be here for me.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) “We have to change this culture, and get women comfortable having their child with the doctor or nurse on duty,” Moraes Filho said.In public hospitals doctors are paid R$150 ($74) for a C-section, and R$175 ($86) for a natural birth. Three-quarters of Brazilians rely on free public health care. Private doctors receive between R$ 200 ($100) and R$400 ($200) per birth, depending on the health care plan and the procedure.“It’s not that doctors are mercenaries, but what they earn to be present for a very important moment is little more than what a television repairman gets who shows up on his schedule,” Moraes Filho said. “This doctor-patient connection where the woman wants her doctor present, the poor remuneration for doctors, their need to juggle several jobs _ all this makes it impossible for a practitioner to reconcile his work schedule with unpredictable vaginal births.”In an effort to reverse the trend, Brazil’s federal government has invested $1.3 billion over the last year and a half, with another $3.36 billion allocated in a program called “The Stork Network,” aimed at “humanizing” the birth experience and educating mothers and health care practitioners on the benefits of natural childbirth. 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debateslast_img read more

Attention All Mortgage Servicers

first_img in Daily Dose, Data, News July 12, 2017 503 Views Share 2017-07-12 Staff Writercenter_img Attention All Mortgage Servicers Every month, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau releases a consumer complaint report about financial services and provides a regular update on the most prominent problems consumers face.As of June 1, more than 1.2 million total complaints have been received and handled by the agency since 2011, according to the report.To put that number into perspective, the report provides a national overview, a state-level overview, and highlights narratives submitted by consumers regarding their experience with the CFPB’s complaint process.“The Bureau’s ability to receive and process consumer complaints enables us to hear directly from people about their concerns and helps us prioritize our work to protect others against similar problems,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray. “This report provides valuable information to the CFPB and the public about issues and trends we are seeing from each state.”Nationwide, debt collection and mortgage-related complaints make up 50 percent of the complaints received.Debt collection remains the most complained about product or service, CFPB noted, with approximately 316,810 total complaints to date, or 27 percent by volume, since the Bureau began accepting debt collection complaints in July 2013.CFPB reported that since it began taking mortgage complaints in December 2011, approximately 272,153 mortgage-related complaints have been received. Making this product the second highest of complaints by volume at 23 percent. Complaints include problems about consumers’ experiences dealing with their servicer when they are struggling to make payments.Credit reporting, credit cards, and bank account or service make up the rest of the top five products or services the Bureau receives the most complaints about.When consumers submit a complaint, they have the option to share publicly their explanation of what happened. The monthly report spotlights that over 50 percent of the complaint narratives, or detailed consumer descriptions of problems experienced, have been published since 2015.CFPB accepting consumer complaints not only helps consumers express themselves, but it also helps companies adjust to their consumer needs. The data shows a 7 percent increase in complaints handled, and 97 percent of companies have timely responses to complaints since 2011.last_img read more

Chronicling Californias Affordability Issues

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Origination, Secondary Market California is no stranger to affordability issues, but a new report by The Mercury News reveals that today’s buyers pay nearly nine times the median annual income—$100,000—for a home in the Bay Area. The report, which is compiled of stats by Clever Real Estate, said San Jose, California, is the least affordable metro in the nation, requiring nearly 10 times the median income to buy the average home. The typical Bay Area home buyer in the 1960s paid about twice the median annual income for a house, while home hunters today pay nearly nine times the median annual income, according to a new study by Clever Real Estate. The region’s median annual household income is roughly $100,000.“It’s a crazy disparity in some parts of the country,” said Thomas O’Shaughnessy, head of research at the St. Louis-based discount real estate website. Although affordability has declined in most major cities, he said, “it’s really the most noticeable in San Francisco and San Jose.”Home prices nationally have taken off so far in 2019, but home prices have leveled off in California after peaking at $928,000 in May 2018, according to data from CoreLogic. CoreLogic also found that California’s housing market in recent months has turned around. The report states that existing homes sales increased by 10.6% month-over-month in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, Ventura, San Bernadino, and Orange Counties.While this is an increase from April, home sales are down 2.7% from 2018, and the 22,300 homes sold for the month was the lowest for that month since 21,754 were sold in May 2015.Homes sold in the San Francisco Bay Area saw an increase of 18.9% from April 2018, but still down 2.7% year-over-year. The Mercury News, though, states real estate agents say prices may be soaring past the budgets of most would-be home buyers, as affordability remains an issue for potential buyers who have trouble saving $200,000 for a down payment on a median-priced home.  2019 Housing Market Affordability california 2019-07-30 Mike Albanese 3 days ago 136 Views center_img Share Chronicling California’s Affordability Issueslast_img read more

Paper boarding passes could become a thing of the past after bmi became the first UK carrier to trial a new text-message boarding card system.Customers who check-in online will be sent SMS messages to their mobile phone displaying a unique barcode that will then be scanned by airport officials at security and during boarding.The initial trial will take place over the next three months on flights from London Heathrow to Edinburgh and flights to Belfast City from Manchester International Airport.If the pilot proves successful, bmi has suggested the system could be introduced on other routes in a bid to limit the amount of time passengers have to spend at airports prior to departure.Airlines in other countries are already making use of similar technology. Lufthansa rolled out text message boarding passes on flights from Hamburg to Munich and Air France has announced that all tickets will become electronic in the future.The airline will follow recommendations from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and phase out traditional paper tickets making way for text messages with boarding information, starting in June.

Zolotas to be tried along with others in Focus case

first_imgIn an interim ruling on Thursday the Nicosia criminal court said Greek businessman Michalis Zolotas would be tried along with the other defendants in the case involving the alleged bribery of the former head of the Central Bank.Zolotas’ lawyers had earlier filed a motion for their client to be tried separately from the rest of the defendants, arguing that, unlike the other accused, Zolotas faces only a single charge – that of money laundering.They had also filed a motion that Zolotas’ name should be removed from the text of the charge sheet detailing the charges faced by the other defendants.The court rejected both motions, finding that Zolotas’ inclusion was integral to the case as a whole.This, the court said, is because the whole case hinges on the transfer of €1m – the transfer itself not being disputed – made from Focus Maritime Corp, a company owned by Zolotas, to a consulting firm (AC Christodoulou Consultants Ltd) run by the daughter of Christodoulos Christodoulou, the former governor of the Central Bank.Zolotas’ inclusion on the charge sheet does not impinge on the presumption of innocence, the court noted.The case is based on the suspicion that the €1m transfer from Focus to the consulting firm was actually made on behalf of former Laiki Bank boss Andreas Vgenopoulos in exchange for Christodoulou’s collusion during the Greek financier’s 2006 takeover of Laiki.The other defendants – Christodoulou, his daughter Athena Christodolou and her ex-husband Andreas Kizourides, former Laiki official Michael Fole, and companies Focus Maritime Corp, AC Christodoulou Consultants Ltd and Marfin Investment Group (MIG) – face charges including corruption of a public official and abuse of power.Also on Thursday the court accepted a motion by the prosecution to amend the charge sheet. Zolotas will be now facing two counts of money laundering, from one count previously.The amended charge sheet is to be filed in court on January 18.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

Government generates €255m surplus in January

first_imgThe government generated a fiscal surplus of €255m on a cash basis in January, compared to €168m in January last year, as the increase in revenue outpaced that of expenditure, the finance ministry said.The increase in revenue in January was mainly on a €54m increase in value added tax (VAT) revenue to €191m, compared to a year before, while overall indirect tax revenue rose by €52m, to €296m, the ministry said in a statement on its website. Direct tax revenue rose by €44m, to €257m. Total revenue rose in the first month of the year by €119m, to €730m.Total expenditure rose in January to €479m which is €32m more compared to government spending in January 2017, the ministry said. The higher public expenditure was mainly on a €13m increase in spending on goods and services, to €23m, €8m on interest payments, to €25m, and €7m on wages and salaries, to €135m. The increase was partly offset by a €6m drop in current transfers, to €119m.The primary surplus, which is the difference between total revenue and spending excluding interest payments, rose to €279m in January, from €185m the previous year, the ministry said.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
