    What Does It Mean To Be a Mother?

    in Parents

    In observance of Mother's Day we will talk about what it means to be a mother, including how this meaning is changing over time, or is it really? Dr. Annie Abram will be interviewed by Rondi Charleston.  Dr. Abram is a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst, and holds a PhD in clinical social work. Her practice is in Norwalk, CT.
    Rondi Charleston, a Juilliard graduate, is an award winning jazz singer/lyricist/composer whose work has appeared in film, TV and on stage throughout the U.S. and Europe.
    Her most recent album, Signs of Life, climbed the Jazz Week charts for ten consecutive weeks and has critics raving; Jazz Times proclaims: “she is a songwriter whose poetic, narrative, and compositional skills are comparable to such modern masters as Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon.” Touring in support of Signs of Life, Rondi and her all-star band have given sold out performances from coast to coast – from Yoshi’s in San Francisco, to Mayne Stage in Chicago, to Joe’s Pub in New York. Along the way, Rondi has appeared as a featured guest on such prestigious television – PBS Chicago Tonight, Entertainment Tonight, and ABC Windy City Live. Prior to her jazz career Rondi worked at ABC News as a journalist. She received an Emmy and Peabody Award as a television journalist and investigative reporter for Primetime Live.

    Cut it Out! The Epidemic of Cesarian Sections

    in Parents

    Join me for a rich bold jazzy converstion with Theresa Morris, author of Cut It Out: the C-Section Epidemic in America.  Professor Morris' primary areas of specialization are Organizational Theory, Sociology of Reproduction and Birth, Political Sociology, and Sex and Gender. 
    Theresa challenges most existing explanations of the unprecedented rise in c-section rates, which locate the cause of this trend in physicians practicing defensive medicine, women choosing c-sections for scheduling reasons, or women’s poor health and older ages. Morris’s explanation of the c-section epidemic is more complicated, taking into account the power and structure of legal, political, medical, and professional organizations; gendered ideas that devalue women; hospital organizational structures and protocols; and professional standards in the medical and insurance communities. She argues that there is a new culture within medicine that avoids risk or unpredictable outcomes and instead embraces planning and conservative choices, all in an effort to have perfect births. Based on 130 in-depth interviews with women who had just given birth, obstetricians, midwives, and labor and delivery nurses, as well as a careful examination of local and national level c-section rates, Cut It Out provides a comprehensive, riveting look at a little-known epidemic that greatly affects the lives, health, and families of each and every woman in America.
