    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.

    in Parents

    Often times we play a role in the lives of our children as athletes.  Whether they are boys or girls, football, baseball, basketball, softball, volleyball, or any other sport, our role doesn't change.  Hopefully our role is a positive one that will impact their lives and the lives of those teammates without.  There are sometimes when it appears we have over shadowed the situation.  If so, please charge it to his heart and not his head, because we don't know the full impact of this game when dealing in the sports industry.  Because “We Are Dads, Fathers, Pops, Old Man, Padre, whomever” and we must be our child’s BIGGEST ADVOCATE.
