    Maintaining Your Relationships During Pregnancy Part 3

    in Family

    In the first show and second segment, I discussed the positive and negative strategies couples use to maintain a relationship and stay close during pregnancy.  An example of positive behaviors to keep the relationship close is being open in a relationship.  An example of negative behaviors explained in the second show is using avoidance or deception (which is not always bad) as a way to make sure the relationship is as normal as possible during pregnancy.  In this third segment, I will have a female guest (who just gave birth) explain her experiences with the positive and negative ways she and her husband maintained their relationship during pregnancy and offering tips for future pregnant partners.  Please join me and call in to share your feedback.

    in Family

    In the first show, we discussed what the positive strategies pregnant couples used to maintain a relationship that makes them satisfied and committed.  In this second show, we’ll focus on the dark side/negative behaviors couples use in trying to maintain the relationship during pregnancy.  As I notice in some couples, partners may use these behaviors as ways to manipulate and control the other person to keep the relationship close.  Join me as I share some of my observations with friends and participate in this discussion as we focus on the dark side of maintaining the relationship during pregnancy.

    Unexpected Pregnancy?

    in Dads and Family

    On today's show we discuss Unexpected Pregnancy with Renee Culbertson of Esperanza Women’s Center.  An unwanted pregnancy can bring up a lot of challenges and concerns for young women. Even if you’ve always wanted to be a mother, you didn’t expect to become pregnant right now, and it probably wasn’t part of your plans for the immediate future. You might be worried about how your life is going to change if you have a baby, and whether you can even afford to raise a child.

    Teen Pregnancy

    in Social Networking

    Even though the teen pregnancy rate has declined over the past few decades, the fact of the matter is that the United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate of the Western industrialized world. It is true that the teen pregnancy and birth rate was much higher prior to 1980 (and especially in the 1950s and 1960s), but at the time young women were getting married and having children before the age of 20. Most of the teen pregnancies occurring before 1980 were to married women; now most of today's teen mothers are unwed.
