An expectant mother can feel like a specimen and not like a person with legal rights and individual preferences. Expectant mothers do have the right to control their medical care, to make choices based on information and to refuse care. Learning what your legal rights are will help you feel more in charge.
With over half of all pregnant women falling in the plus-size category, plus-size pregnancy is something that can no longer be ignored. But being plus-sized doesn't mean you can't have a wonderful, healthy pregnancy and a beautiful, healthy baby if you get the information you need and receive good medical care.
Pregnancy is a time of exciting change. Your body is changing and soon your family life will be joyously altered forever. Getting ready for a new baby can be stress-free if you take the time now to plan ahead.
1.25 million babies (one third of all births) are born each year in the U.S. to unmarried parents. Many people just assume these babies are born to single teen moms, when in fact 41% of these births are to unmarried cohabiting couples.
