Influence of gender roles and rising food prices on poor, pregnant women's eating and food provisioning practices in Dhaka, BangladeshDownload
Background Maternal malnutrition in Bangladesh is a persistent health issue and is the product of a number of complex factors, including adherence to food 'taboos’ and a patriarchal gender order that limits women’s mobility and decision-making. The recent global food price crisis is also...
Barriers, motivators and facilitators related to prenatal care utilization among inner-city women in Winnipeg, Canada: a case–control studyDownload
Background: The reasons why women do not obtain prenatal care even when it is available and accessible are complex. Despite Canada’s universally funded health care system, use of prenatal care varies widely across neighborhoods in Winnipeg, Manitoba, with the highest rates of inadequate prenatal...
Probiotic supplementation during pregnancy or infancy for the prevention of wheeze and asthma: A systematic review and meta-analysisDownload
Objective To evaluate the association of probiotic supplementation during pregnancy or infancy with childhood asthma and wheeze. Design Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials. Data sources Medline, Embase, and Central (Cochrane Library) databases from inception to...
Adverse uterine environments experienced during fetal development can alter the projected growth pattern of various organs and systems of the body, leaving the offspring at an increased risk of metabolic disease. The thrifty phenotype hypothesis has been demonstrated as an alteration to the...
Adequate adaptation of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is important during pregnancy to ensure that the increased metabolic demands by the developing fetus are met. These include changes in surface area mediated by villus hypertrophy and enhanced functional capacity of individual nutrient...
The focus of this article is on access to sexual and reproductive health care, an essential aspect of reproductive justice. Although the scope of the problem is unknown, there are reasons to question whether Canadian women are able to access reproductive and sexual health services such as...
Comparing the feasibility, acceptability, clinical-, and cost-effectiveness of mental health e-screening to paper-based screening on the detection of depression, anxiety, and psychosocial risk in pregnant women: A study protocol of a randomized, parallel-group, superiority trial.Download
Background Stress, depression, and anxiety affect 15% to 25% of pregnant women. However, substantial barriers to psychosocial assessment exist, resulting in less than 20% of prenatal care providers assessing and treating mental health problems. Moreover, pregnant women are often reluctant to...
Pre and postnatal maternal distress and infant gut immunity in the Canadian Healthy Infant Longitudinal Development (CHILD) birth cohortDownload
Introduction: Secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA) plays a critical role in gut mucosal immunity and is a marker of immune maturation in early life. Delayed IgA production is associated with increased risk of allergic diseases. Animal models of stressful events before birth and during infancy show...
High fructose intake during pregnancy adversely affects insulin resistance, lipid profiles, and affects placental gene expression of nutrient transporters and angiogenesis in rat dams and their pregnant offspringDownload
Fructose intake has increased over the past several decades due to high consumption of sugary foods and drinks. In non-pregnant humans and animals, high fructose intake results in hyperlipidemia, insulin resistance and weight gain, although its effects on metabolic adaptations to pregnancy and on...
In this article, the author explores the jurisprudence surrounding a contentious area of tort law: wrongful life claims. These claims focus on the situation in which the physician’s negligence lies in the failure to provide the child’s parents with the opportunity to prevent the birth of the...
