This is a video on prenatal screening, fetal testing, and other tests and methods of evaluating mom and baby during pregnancy. I created this presentation with Google Slides. Images were created or taken from Wikimedia Commons I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor. ADDITIONAL TAGS: Prenatal screening, fetal testing, and other tests during pregnancy Used in 1st trimester to confirm intrauterine pregnancy, gestational age, singleton vs multiple births GA by measuring crown-rump-length (CRL), most accurate between 7 and 10 w 3rd trimester to assess fetal well-being with BPP, position/orientation, an/oligo/polyhydramnios Fetal anemia screen (transcranial doppler) after 20 w High velocity means baby Bb is low Cardiotocography for fetal monitoring uses Doppler u/s: see NST, CST, BPP Benefit: no risk to fetus and no complications 2 15 bpm accelerations lasting 15 sec (15 for 15, or 10 for 10 32 wks) Baseline heart rate of 110 to 160 bpm Moderate variability (6-25 bpm) No late or variable decels A typical CTG output for a woman not in labour. A: Fetal heartbeat; B: Indicator showing movements felt by mother (caused by pressing a button); C: Fetal movement; D: Uterine contractions Assessment of how fetus will handle contractions of childbirth Induce contractions with oxytocin or nipple stimulation to achieve 3 contractions (strength of 200+ Montevideo units) in 10 minutes Assess for Bradycardia: fetal heart rate less than 110 bpm Decelerations: Contraction stress test is positive if at least half the contractions are followed by late decelerations Type Timing and shape Indicative of Intervention Early decel. Mirrors contractions Head compression None Variable Abrupt, V-shaped, random relation to contractions Cord compression None unless recurrent Late Begin when contractions peak Placental insufficiency Immediate delivery Combines NST with ultrasound measurements. Score based on 5 criteria (2 pts each) for total of 1-10: (APGAR for fetus) Defined as: diagnosis of diabetes 20 weeks gestation. Risk factors: BMI 30; history of prediabetes; family hx of DM; age 25; history of stillbirth, polyhydramnios, macrosomia, hypertension, steroid use, PCOS Diagnose as follows: One hour glucose tolerance test: Give 50 g glucose, measure blood sugar at 1 hr If above 140, proceed to three hour test Three hour glucose tolerance test: Give 100 g glucose, measure blood sure at 0, 1, 2, and 3 hrs If above 90, 190, 155, or 140, respectively, then diagnosis is gestational diabetes mellitus. Other findings: High glucose or prediabetes before pregnancy High HbA1c T1DM has anti-insulin or anti-islet cell antibodies Treat GDM first with diet and exercise; postprandial insulin if refractory; and metformin and glyburide if insulin is contraindicated. Premise: Alloimmunization is a concern if mom is Rh Ag negative and baby is Rh Ag positive. If there is blood mixing, she can develop anti-Rh antibodies. Her immune system can then attack Rh Ag positive fetus, causing fetal anemia. To screen… For Rh Ag negative mom, check for Rh antibodies If mom is Rh antibody negative If baby can be Rh Ag + (dad is + or unknown), use RhoGAM at 28 weeks and at delivery If mom is Rh antibody positive (specifically for type D) Perform transcranial doppler to assess for fetal anemia High blood velocities can be indicative of fetal anemia (less viscous blood flows faster) Consider intrauterine blood transfusion or early delivery (if after 36 weeks) RhoGAM = Rho (D) Immune Globulin Hgb = RBC mass / plasma volume Screen moms at 28 weeks with CBC or H&H. If Hgb 10 or Hct 30, perform iron studies Iron def anemia: low ferritin, low MCV, high RDW Most common cause of anemia in pregnancy Add iron supplement (30 mg/day, which is a 100% increase) Sampling of small amount of amniotic fluid through transabdominal needle aspiration; after 16 weeks Used to diagnose NTDs and genetic disorders, including down’s syndrome Risk: fetal loss (1/200 to 1/300); chorioamnionitis; fetal injury; alloimmunization; ROM Replaced with quad screen (measure maternal proteins) and cell-free DNA (detect fetal DNA in mom’s circulation) dilutional anemia Ultrasound Nonstress test Contraction stress test Biophysical profile Diabetes screen Rhesus screen Anemia screen Amniocentesis Chorionic villus sampling Percutaneous umbilical cord blood sampling Procedure: blood is collected from umbilical vein to detect fetal infections, fetal anemia, Rh sensitization, or chromosomal defects. Performed after 18-20 weeks and before 34 weeks (for late detection) For fetal anemia, perform transcranial Doppler to confirm Unique benefit: creates vascular access; can transfuse baby → fix fetal anemia

When a child dies at birth, nothing is routine. Tests and medical procedures suddenly stop. Instead of the wailing of a newborn, there is silence. Years ago, this was also where the patient’s care ended. Today, nurses are realizing this is a critical moment when the standard of care should strengthen. This is the beginning of the family’s journey to healing, and as health care providers, nurses are a vital component in that journey. The perinatal loss program, offered through UT Health San Antonio’s nursing school, teaches students how to communicate with families who have pregnancy loss.

Perinatal asphyxia, more appropriately known as hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), is characterized by clinical and laboratory evidence of acute or subacute brain injury due to asphyxia. The primary causes of this condition are systemic hypoxemia and/or reduced cerebral blood flow (CBF) (see the image below). Birth asphyxia causes 840,000 or 23% of all neonatal deaths worldwide. Now, a new cooling therapy is set to help these babies. The treatment takes advantage of a therapeutic window that occurs after a newborn baby suffers oxygen shortage. By cooling the body (a technique called therapeutic hypothermia) to reduce brain temperature, doctors can alter the chemical processes that lead to brain damage. As soon as possible after birth, and with strict controls in place, the baby is cooled with a purposemade cap or with a special blanket or mattress. After about three days, the baby is gradually warmed again. This videography was made in the presentation of Maternal and Child Nursing in Dr. Sulaiman Al Habib Medical Group Arrayan Hospital with the Neonatal Intensive Care Nurses.

Parents who experienced the loss of their baby shortly after birth discuss the impact of the Perinatal Palliative Care and Bereavement Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). In this panel discussion, families cared for by the program, housed in CHOP’s Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment, share their feelings about what it was like preparing to deliver their baby with a life-limiting fetal diagnosis. They talk about how a coordinated Perinatal Palliative Care and Bereavement Program helped them prepare for an anticipated perinatal loss, and how the medical, nursing and psychosocial services provided at Children’s Hospital supported them through an extremely difficult time. Specialists from the Hospital briefly discuss the different roles team members provide for the pregnant patient, her partner, and their family. The CFDT’s Perinatal Palliative Care and Bereavement Program focuses on supporting families expecting babies diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses from the point of diagnosis, throughout the pregnancy, at the time of delivery, and beyond the death of their baby. At CHOP, obstetricians, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, neonatologists, nurses, chaplains, social workers, child life specialists and clinical psychologists are available to support families when coping with a fetal and/or neonatal death. Our Perinatal Palliative Care and Bereavement Program offers pregnancy options counseling, prenatal care services, guidance through the medical choices available at birth, palliative care birth planning, direction and access to community resources to help with the grieving process, coordination of spiritual support, sibling preparation, family memory-making opportunities, and more.

Necrotizing Enterocolitis is the most common cause of GIT problems in preterm. It is a mucosal or even trans-mucosal necrosis which can often times cause perforation. Incidence and fatality increases with prematurity. Pathogenesis is related to three underlying factors. First factor of necortizing enterocolitis is intestinal ischemia, enteral nutrition, and finally bacterial colonization. Enteral Nutrition of the preterm infant is still premature therefore there is decreased motility and function. Since it is not being absorbed there is increased amount of bacteria. Therefore aggressive enteral feeding of preterm infant can predispose to necrotizing enterocolitis. Therefore in preterm you don't want to overfeed them. Human milk tends to be better formula milk. Most likely becuase protective affects of IgA. Bacterial growth in newborn with Necrotizing Entercolitis is due to immature barrier and immature immune system. Also the pH is still high and therefore it is difficult to tackle some of the bacteria. Common organisms are the coagulase nigative staph, e.coli, klebsiella, clostridium perfringens, rotavirus. Antibiotics for more than 5 days also increases likelihood. Term infants don't get necrotizing entercolitis, but if they have congenital heart disease, perinatal asphyxia, respiratory condition, polycythemia can predispose to necrotizing enterocolitis. Indomethacin is associated with this because it causes contraction of splanchnic vasculature. CLINICAL FINDINGS Initially patient will be doing okay until the first or second week, however, it can be up to 30 days later. The greater the prematurity the later in gestational age will be seen. Presentation begins with decreasing feed tolerance, distention and vomiting and diarrhea. Diarrhea is generally bloody. Pateitns with necrotizing entercolitis can develop sepsis, DIC, and perforation. Management of Necrotizing entercolitis is to first do an abdominal x-ray to confirm the diagnosis. If pneumoperitoneum is suspected the patient needs to be left lateral decubitus position and you can see air in the abdomen. Pneumatosis intestinalis which is gas in the small intestines. There will also be dilated loops. Abdominal ultrasound will show the same picture, but there is also fluid collection and there will be bowel wall thickness. Hepatic ultrasound may show portal venous gas. Labs of necrotizing entercolitis can't confirm necrotizing entercolitis, but it can help rule out other causes and establish a baseline value. If there is severe neutropenia less than 1,500 than that is a poor prognostic sign. Coagulation is suspected DIC, and serum markers and electrolytes which can suggest necrosis and sepsis. Respiratory problems associated with Arterial Blood Gas. Sepsis workup is related to blood culture, stool culture, and CSF culture. Stool culture you may want to look for occult blood. Differential Diagnosis is obstruction, rotavirus, but this will be more clustered. Cow milk protein allergy. Spontaneous intestinal performation may mimic necrotizing entercolitis, however, there will be a bluish discoloration rather than reddish discoloration. Management of necrotizing entercolitis is supportive. This includes bowel rest by giving TPN, Nasogastric suctioning, If there is Cardiovascular or respiratory issue than that also needs to be addressed. IV Fluids must correct for loss of fluids. Anti-Biotics you need to go broad spectrum. Empirical treatment you have every hospital has its own protocol. Pediatric Surgeon needs to be invovled especially if there is any sign of perforation. They can't really handle surgery. Laparatory of necrotic bowel and resection, but this can lead to short bowel syndrome. Primary Peritoneal Drainage at bedside they can make a stab wound at McBurney's Point. Preferred if they are Extremely Low Birth Weight. Complications of necrotizing entercolitis can be divided into Acute and Chronic. Sepsis, DIC, CVS, Resp, Metabolic acidosis and hyoglycemia are the acute complications. Chronic complications may be strictures and worsening symptoms. If they undergo surgery there may be Short Bowel Syndrome and the infant can't absorb enough nutrients and they need to be on TPN. Generally, 50% have not sequelae, but mortality is between 20-40%. The more pre-term they are, then the higher the mortality. Prevention of necrotizing entercolitis is breastfeeding and if they are Very Low Birth Weight then minimize enteral feeding, but there needs to be judicious volume advancement. Probiotics also has shown some benefits in treating necrotizing entercolitis.

My baby is diagnosed with HIE, did medical malpractice cause this? When parents are told about this medical condition they are usually confused at first, at least in my experience talking with parents, a lot of the confusion comes from the fact that many people have not heard of this term. HIE is short for Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy. The medical condition essentially deals with a reduced level of blood and oxygen in the baby which can lead to a brain injury. When a child is diagnosed with HIE parents will generally have a lot of questions, with one of the main questions dealing with whether medical malpractice is the case of the child’s HIE diagnosis. MY BABY IS DIAGNOSED WITH HIE After a parent tells me that my baby is diagnosed with HIE, the next question is usually did medical malpractice cause my baby to be this way? To be able to answer that question, a full review of facts and medical records must ensue. One of the common fact patterns we see and read about is where the mother has a pretty normal pregnancy. Mom takes the time to follow up with all of her doctors and keep current with any and all medical orders. The day mom checks into the hospital, the doctors do a sonogram and everything will in some instances look fine. However, as time goes on through the delivery, problems will arise which demand that the doctors and nurses take emergency action for the wellbeing of the baby and mom. THE IMPORTANCE OF THE FETAL HEART MONITOR The fetal heart monitor is a device that helps the doctors to, among other things, determine how well a baby is tolerating a vaginal delivery. One key area of analysis with the fetal heart monitor is the baby’s heart rate. On average a normal heart rate for a baby in this situation is between 120-160 beats per minute. As a baby’s heart rate climbs above 160 bpm and below 120 bpm for a considerable amount of time, problems can occur. Not only is the heart rate important, things such as early vs late decelerations are important. The variability in the strip is also very important. DID MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CAUSE MY BABY’S HIE DIAGNOSIS? When a parent says my baby is diagnosed with HIE, did medical malpractice cause this, one of the areas of serious review will be the fetal heart strips. If flags are present in the strips, and flags are ignored, the baby can suffer a life-altering brain injury. HIE can be the result because essentially the baby has gotten an insufficient amount of blood and oxygen during the delivery. Doctors and nurses have to move towards an emergency C-section when the child is no longer tolerating a vaginal delivery. Again, this is because the baby can suffer a serious brain injury if left to use up all of the baby’s fetal reserves. DID YOUR BABY DEAL WITH HYPOXIC ISCHEMIC ENCEPHALOPOTHY AND NOW HAS A CERBRAL PALSY DIAGNOSIS? Cerebral Palsy is a physical impairment. It is marked by spastic movements of the arms and/or legs. It is a result of a brain injury or brain malformation. The brain can be injured by: bleeding in the brain; lack of blood flow to the brain; lack of oxygen to the brain; and traumatic injury at birth; among some of the causes.

Pick up the phone and give me a call. I can be reached at 301-850-4832. I answer birth injury questions like yours all of the time and I would be happy to listen to your story. Marcus B. Boston, Esq.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Hi, my name is Christina Ronai. I'm one of the Cardiology Fellows at Boston Children's Hospital and I'll be talking to you today about the cardiac history and physical exam when evaluating children for possible cardiac disease. Our objectives today are to understand the clinical history relevant to heart disease in children, recognize the features of the clinical exam in heart disease, understand the basics of auscultation and characterization of cardiac murmurs, and understand the features of pathologic versus benign murmurs. Clinical History. From a history standpoint, there are three important categories: gestational and perinatal history, especially if evaluating an infant, postnatal and present history, and then family history. We're going to go through each of these. The gestational and perinatal history is really important when evaluating an infant. Specifically, you're going to want to ask about the maternal history. Were they healthy while they were pregnant? Did they receive prenatal care? And did they have regular ultrasounds during pregnancy? And if so, did those show anything of concern? When you're asking about maternal infections, you're referring mostly to the TORCH infections, but any infection is also important to note. Finally, you're going to ask if mom took any medications. Specifically, phenytoin, lithium, retinoic acid, and warfarin have all been associated with cardiac malformations. The postnatal and present history is our next category. Most importantly for infants and young children is are they growing along their growth curve? And if they're not growing along their growth curve, have they at least continued to consistently gain weight or have they been losing weight? Are they meeting their developmental milestones? Have there been any feeding problems? Is there any cyanosis? Decreased exercise tolerance. Specifically for young children, you're going to want to ask, as they run around on the playground, are they able to keep up with their peers or are they falling back? Have they ever fainted or felt as if they were about to faint? Have they ever experienced chest pain or palpitations? When you're asking about palpitations, I usually pose the question to children have they had any extra beats or skipped beats? The most important thing to remember when evaluating an infant is that feeding is really an exercise test for them. And if they are able to feed and grow, there's usually not a major cardiac issue. Family history. You're going to want to ask if anyone has ever been born with a heart problem. And that'll be your screening for family history of congenital heart disease. Has anyone passed away suddenly or from an unexplained cause? Often I will also ask about unexplained car accidents or drownings, because those can be indicative of electrical problems with the heart. Does anyone have hypertrophic or dilated cardiomyopathy? And does anyone in the family require a pacemaker or an implanted defibrillator?

The expectation and arrival of a new baby is supposed to be a joyful time in a family’s life, but many parents are left reeling when they receive the heartbreaking news that their baby likely won’t live long. Four families share their experiences of loss in Johns Hopkins Children's Center's NICU, and staff speak about the services available through Johns Hopkins’ Perinatal Palliative Care Program to support parents facing the unimaginable: the death of their baby. As medical technology continues to advance, we are more able to discover serious anomalies prenatally, and to sometimes keep babies alive who are born extremely premature and/or with devastating medical conditions. Parents in these situations often have to make difficult and heartrending decisions about their child’s care. The Johns Hopkins’ Pediatric Palliative Care Team provides support to these families in a variety of ways and works hard to make sure that even the shortest lives are infused with sacredness and dignity.

Speaker: Tarasoff, L.A. This research presenttion is from the 2 minute segment of the Women's Xchange Spring Event 2015, Women's Health Research: Reaching the Hard to Reach Abstract: Background:Although equivalent data is not available in Canada, research from the U.S. indicates that women with physical disabilities give birth at similar rates to non-disabled women (Iezzoni et al., 2013) and that disabled and non-disabled women have similar fertility desires (Shandra, Hogan, & Short, 2014). Despite the growing number of mothers with physical disabilities, many report encountering barriers to perinatal care, including negative attitudes, inaccessible care settings, and a lack of knowledge about the interaction of pregnancy and disability among service providers (Signore et al., 2011; Tarasoff, 2015). Objective:To better understand the unique perinatal care experiences women with physical disabilitiesin the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Methods: Women with physical or mobility-limiting disabilities who have become mothers in the last five years and live in the GTAwere recruited via online networks and relevant community organizations and health care settings. Eligible participants completed a socio-demographic survey and participated in a 60-120 minute, in-person, in-depth interview. A constructivist grounded theory approach (Charmaz, 2006) is being used to analyze the data and generate common themes. Results:To-date, 9 interviews have been completed. Some common themes that have been identified thus far include inaccessible care settings; lack of information and knowledge on the part of both mothers-to-be and service providers concerning the interaction of pregnancy, labour, disability and medication, and as such participants report having to educate providers and advocate for particular types of care; the push for increased intervention in labour and birth (i.e., the assumption that disability equals high risk); the importance of social, partner, and financial support; parenting challenges and use of adaptive devices; chronic pain; breastfeeding challenges; and worries about loss of custody.

In this video, we look back at the last year and how - thanks to your support - we were able to help thousands of premature and scick babies and their families in 2013. We focus on three key areas of our work and how we are making a really positive impact on the care and treatment of special care babies. Bliss Nurses have supported thousands of anxious parents and families and enabled them to play a key role in the care of their baby. Our work with doctors and nurses in neonatal units across the country has improved the care that is delivered to babies and their families. And thanks to the growth of our volunteering programme, thousands of parents are receiving direct support, both on unit and after their baby has gone home. Thanks to your support we've achieved a lot in 2013, but there is still so much more than needs to be done.

Health care and political systems are deeply intertwined, with implications for the quality and equality of access to health care. This symposium explores the political dynamics of health care laws and the way they affect people not only as patients but also as citizens. Health professionals, policy and public health experts, economists, sociologists, and political scientists draw on comparative politics and policies of the states—alone and as part of a federalist system—and on international perspectives to explore the relationships between citizens and their health care.

Cerebral palsy is a movement disorder caused by abnormal developments or brain damage before, during, or after a baby’s birth. Cerebral palsy affects movement, posture and muscle tone, reflex and balance. It causes abnormal reflexes, floppiness or rigidity of the limbs and trunk, involuntary movements, unsteady walking, or some combination of these. People with Cerebral Palsy (CP) could have issues with speaking and swallowing. There are more than 100,000 cases of Cerebral Palsy in Nigeria with most affected individuals in need of care due to CP’s effect on functional abilities. Though symptoms and severity differs for individuals, most affected with the condition go on to live fulfilling lives. CP is mostly congenital but it could also be acquired during infancy. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS CP affects coordination and movement, though the signs and symptoms may vary but the most common signs of cerebral palsy include Problems with movement on one side of body Stiff muscles Exaggerated or jerky reflexes Involuntary movements or tremors Lack of coordination and balance Drooling Problems swallowing or sucking Difficulty with speech (dysarthria) Seizures Contractures (shortening of muscles) Delayed motor skill development Incontinence Gastrointestinal problems CAUSES The common causes of CP include: Mutations in genes that lead to abnormal brain development Maternal infections that affect the developing fetus Bacterial and viral infections that affect the brain Bleeding in the brain (hemorrhaging) A lack of oxygen to the brain before, during or after birth (asphyxia) Prenatal exposure to drugs and alcohol, mercury poisoning from fish and toxoplasmosis from raw/undercooked meat Head injuries sustained during birth or in the first few years of infancy PREVENTION Most cases of cerebral palsy can’t be prevented, but steps can be taken to reduce the risks. The best shot to some measure of prevention is for women to avoid pregnancy complication. Ensure you are vaccinated. Vaccination against diseases such as rubella may prevent an infection that could cause fetal brain damage. Stay healthy. The healthier you are heading into a pregnancy, the less likely you’ll be to develop an infection that may result in cerebral palsy. Early and continuous prenatal care. Regular visits to your doctor during your pregnancy are a good way to reduce health risks to you and your unborn baby. Seeing your doctor regularly can help prevent premature birth, low birth weight and infections. Prevent head injuries by providing your child with a car seat, bicycle helmet, safety rails on beds and appropriate supervision. CURE Cerebral palsy is incurable, as the damage to the brain cannot be fixed. However, treatment and therapy can help manage its effect on the body. Surgery, medications and assistive technology can also help maximize independence, increase inclusion and thus lead to an enhanced quality of life.

SOUNDBITE: (English), Professor Vivette Glover, Professor of Perinatal Psychobiology, Imperial College London "The foetus is normally protected from the mother's stress hormones, particularly cortisol, by the placenta. The placenta acts as a barrier. And in the placenta there is an enzyme called (11B-2HSD)2, which breaks down cortisol so that the foetus is protected. But under conditions of stress, in animals, it's been shown the level of this enzyme is reduced, so this allows more cortisol to pass from the mother to the foetus. And we don't yet know if that happens in humans, but we're actively studying it that's one of the things we're doing research on right now." 20. Various of student dissecting placenta 21.

Paleolithic Diets and Blood Pressure Control: How Do We Think It Works? Paleolithic (Paleo) diets differ from modern diets in many ways, among these being that Paleo diets are often much lower in sodium salts (mainly sodium chloride or table salt) and higher in potassium salts. Both higher sodium chloride intakes and lower potassium intakes are associated with higher blood pressure and poorer blood pressure control. We will review what metabolic changes, such as lipid levels and insulin resistance, have been seen in clinical trials altering dietary intakes of sodium and potassium, and some potential pathophysiologic mechanisms.

More Than Bones: Muscle Strength, Physiology, and an Ancestral Approach to Back Pain Chronic low back pain (CLBP) is one of the most common reasons to visit a physician. This condition is often disabling to the patient and it is an enormous economic burden secondary to both direct and indirect costs. While CLBP is very common, diagnosis of its etiology is often difficult. It is widely known that there is not a one to one correlation with anatomic pathology as seen with radiographic imaging of the spine and CLBP as experienced by the patient. Surgery, percutaneous image-guided procedures, oral medication, and traditional physical therapy are widely used to address CLBP, though often with limited success. Yet, there has been little clinical attention to date on the therapeutic effect of improved physical strength and hypertrophy of the muscles surrounding the spine. Nonetheless, there is ample evidence in the literature that hypertrophy of the muscles that support the spine is inversely correlated with CLBP. There is also evidence that a wide variety of factors, physiological and otherwise, are major determinants of the nature and severity of this condition. It is thus proposed that many of the structural abnormalities commonly attributed to CLBP are only a relatively small part of its overall etiology. This implies that a normalization of muscle strength and the adoption of behaviors promoting the optimal physiological milieu of the spine may be the optimal treatment for the vast majority of individuals with CLBP. Thus while CLBP is a condition endemic to both modern and ancestral societies, there appear to be mechanisms innate to human physiology that we may better utilize to combat this condition.

Dr. Brogan’s program is a soundly welcomed bright light in a world otherwise focused solely on pharmaceuticals.” — David Perlmutter, MD, author of #1 New York Times bestseller Grain Brain and Brain Maker To learn more, please visit http://kellybroganmd.com. Depression is not a disease. It is a symptom. Recent years have seen a shocking increase in antidepressant use the world over, with 1 in 4 women starting their day with medication. These drugs have steadily become the panacea for everything from grief, irritability, panic attacks, to insomnia, PMS, and stress. But the truth is, what women really need can’t be found at a pharmacy. According to Dr. Kelly Brogan, antidepressants not only overpromise and underdeliver, but their use may permanently disable the body’s self-healing potential. We need a new paradigm: The best way to heal the mind is to heal the whole body. In this groundbreaking, science-based and holistic approach, Dr. Brogan shatters the mythology conventional medicine has built around the causes and treatment of depression. Based on her expert interpretation of published medical findings, combined with years of experience from her clinical practice, Dr. Brogan illuminates the true cause of depression: it is not simply a chemical imbalance, but a lifestyle crisis that demands a reset. It is a signal that the interconnected systems in the body are out of balance – from blood sugar, to gut health, to thyroid function– and inflammation is at the root. A Mind of Your Own offers an achievable, step-by-step 30-day action plan—including powerful dietary interventions, targeted nutrient support, detoxification, sleep, and stress reframing techniques—women can use to heal their bodies, alleviate inflammation, and feel like themselves again without a single prescription. Bold, brave, and revolutionary, A Mind of Your Own takes readers on a journey of self-empowerment for radical transformation that goes far beyond symptom relief.
