Uterus and Premies
Body Changes
Ectopic pregnancy
Not So Fun Facts of Pregnancy
Affects of Drugs and Alcohol
Welcome to Childbirth 100. Class is on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 1pm-2:15pm. In this class you will learn all the different aspects of pregnancy. Quizzes and tests will be large part of your grade. You are allowed to miss 3 days of class, but be sure to get the assignments/information that you missed.
Month by Month Growth: Here's a video that shows the growth of a baby during pregnancy
What happens in the Uterus:
During pregnancy the uterus grows and changes shape to accommodate for the growing fetus.
The uterus will grow upwards, shifting out of the woman’s pelvis. It can expand up to twenty times its normal size during pregnancy.
The uterus is held in place by ligaments, which stretch as the uterus grows, acting like an anchor, particularly when the uterus leans slightly towards the woman’s right side, as it will often do during the later months of pregnancy.
A premature baby is born too early, before 37 weeks. Premature babies may have more health problems and may need to stay in the hospital longer than babies born later. They also may have long term health problems that can affect their whole lives. Nearly half a million babies are born prematurely each year in the United States.
Body Changes Inner: Here's another video that shows obvious changes within the inner body: http://www.msichicago.org/whats-here/exhibits/you/the-exhibit/your-beginning/make-room-for-baby/interactive/
Body changes outer: these are just a few things your outer body goes through while pregnant body aches, breast changes colors, constipation, sleep problems, morning sickness
This week we will discuss some fun facts about pregnancy. Exmples:
You could be pregnant for over a year
A male fetus can get erections in the womb
Contractions don't stop after birth
You'll most likely poop yourself
During pregnancy, the average woman's uterus expans up to 500 times its normal size
We will look at how drugs and alcohol can affect babies in the womb and after birth.
Affects of Drugs: example
Fetuses can become dependent on the drug(s) the pregnant mother is using and may experience withdrawal symptoms after delivery and low birth weight places babies at increased risk for illness, disability, and death.
Affects of Alcohol: example
Facial abnormalities include small eye-lid openings, low-set ears, and a thin upper lip. Dental malformations and frequent ear infections are also common in children with FAS

Pregnancy 100
Vaginal Birth vs C-Section
This week we will discuss ectopic pregnancies
An ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy that occurs outside the womb (uterus). It is life-threatening to the mother
1 in 50 pregnancies will be an ectopic pregnancy
Most often, ectopic pregnancy happens within the first few weeks of pregnancy. You might not even know you're pregnant yet, so it can be a big shock. Doctors usually discover it by the 8th week of pregnancy.
The baby probably can't survive -though in extremely rare cases he or she might.
This week we will discuss vaginal birth vs. C-Sections
A Caesarean Section Is Quick In Comparison To Most Labors
A Caesarean Section Is Perceived As Pain-Free.
Vaginal Birth:
Generally painful
Can be dangerous for the baby
Can take a very long time
Stages of Labor
This week we will discuss the stages of labor
The first stage begins when you start having contractions that cause progressive changes in your cervix and ends when your cervix is fully dilated. This stage is divided into two phases:
Early labor: Your cervix gradually effaces (thins out) and dilates (opens).
Active labor: Your cervix begins to dilate more rapidly, and contractions are longer, stronger, and closer together. People often refer to the last part of active labor as transition.
The second stage of labor begins when you're fully dilated and ends with the birth of your baby.
The third stage begins right after the birth of your baby and ends with the delivery of the placenta.
This week we will discuss the placenta
Connect fetus to uterine wall
Can cause problems in pregnancy
Can be eaten
Fights off postpardoum depression
can be eaten raw or cooked
Class will split into two groups of 4
Each group will look up placenta recipe
After finding a recipe, the students will make the recipe with an alternative to placenta provided by the instructor
Class will have a buffet style show and tell
