I'm a PhD student at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and also teach at BryanLGH College of Health Sciences. THe course I teach is called Global Community: Cultural Diversity in Health and Illness. Now before you think what kind of Diversity do they have in Nebraska? You need to know that Lincoln was ranked 5th in the United States per capita for resettlement of refugees and we have over 60 languages spoken by children in our public school system.
I watched the movie the Business of Being Born in my Medical Anthropology class and was quite fascinated by the content. I'm showing the movie to my students...who are mostly Sophomore and Junior Nursing students and we are having a person from the Nebraska Midwives group come and dialgoue with the students about this.
I'd like to ask you all a question though...how many of you who have had your babies the natural way have had your children diagnosed with ADD or ADHD? My guess is this rate would be reduced in babies whose Mom's chose natural childbirth as opposed to those who had medication enduced child birth. But I'm not sure...share your thoughts with me.
It's been a long time since I was pregnant. My babies are 23 & 19!
Looking forward to hearing from you all.
