The fact that venomous snakebites during pregnancy result in a high fetal wastage and that both venomous snake and spider bites may cause maternal mortality, makes this an important, albeit uncommonly encountered, entity in obstetrics. Perhaps the most difficult aspect of dealing with this clinical situation is that care must ...
Foster S F - - 1996
The aim of this study is to make a preliminary examination of the relationship between body satisfaction, maternal fetal attachment, and breast or bottle feeding plans in pregnancy. Thirty eight women between 32 and 38 weeks pregnant were examined by means of the Maternal Foetal Attachment Scale, the Eating Disorders ...
Hosking D J - - 1996
The demands of fetal growth lead to an adaptation of maternal homeostasis in order to provide the required calcium from enhanced intestinal absorption rather than from mobilization of maternal skeletal reserves. In large part this adaptive process depends on the interrelationship between PTH and 1,25(OH)2D which shows quantitative rather than ...

The maternal phenylketonuria (PKU) syndrome refers to the teratogenic effects of PKU during pregnancy. These effects include mental retardation, microcephaly, congenital heart disease, and intrauterine growth retardation. In untreated pregnancies wherein the mother has classic PKU with a blood phenylalanine level > or = 1,200 microM (20 mg/dl), the frequencies ...
Haig D - - 1996
Pregnancy is traditionally viewed as a harmonious collaboration between mother and fetus. From this perspective, viviparity poses a series of problems that maternal and fetal genes work together to solve and the many complications of pregnancy are interpreted as evidence of the malfunctioning of an evolved system or of the ...

Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) does not appear to cause excessive maternal risk, but the potential for fetal complications is of great concern. In general, operative intervention should be delayed until at least the second trimester. When this is not possible, ethical issues arise and a clash of maternal autonomy versus "fetal ...
Montemagno R - - 1995
A cross-sectional study of 64 women and their fetuses undergoing cordocentesis at 18-25 weeks showed no significant correlation between maternal and fetal Hb or MCV and no relationship between these measurements and fetal abdominal circumference. We found no evidence for a nutritional or physiological association between maternal and fetal haematological ...

Most mammals display an immediate onset of maternal care towards their offspring at parturition. In contrast, inexperienced, nulliparous females are often slow responders and show less intensity in their maternal responses. The transition from a slow responder in non-parous females to a rapid response at parturition is facilitated by the ...
Rosenblatt J S - - 1994
Psychobiological studies of maternal behavior among non-primate mammals have arrived at several general conclusions that may aid in our understanding of human maternal behavior and in the clinical treatment of parenting disorders. The hormonal basis of maternal behavior arises during pregnancy and consists of a hormonal priming phase, extending over ...

Pregnancy has commonly been viewed as a cooperative interaction between a mother and her fetus. The effects of natural selection on genes expressed in fetuses, however, may be opposed by the effects of natural selection on genes expressed in mothers. In this sense, a genetic conflict can be said to ...
