    ‘I Love The GMAT’: This GMAT Doctor Has Diagnosed More Than 4,000 Test Takers
    Posted on Monday, June 17 @ 00:00:10 PDT (5 reads)
    College Guide ‘i love the gmat’: this gmat doctor has diagnosed more than 4,000 test takers john a. Byrne june 17, 2024 at 4:58 am · 14 min read link copied chris kane, gmat tutor chris kane, head of test prep and a vice president of menlo coaching in his 20 years of coaching people on the gmat, chris kane has more than met malcolm gladwell’s popular dictum that it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert at something. Having guided and coached nearly 5,000 gmat test takers, he boasts the accumulated knowledge and experience of a seasoned doctor treating health problems. “think of me as the gmat doctor who can figure out what a person is doing wrong on this test,” says kane, the 53-year-old head of test prep and a vice president at menlo coaching . “When i get my knee replaced in five years, i am going to the person who has done the most knee replacements. It is the doctor who is in that sweet spot of having a lot of experience but is not set in his ways. He is not too old, and he is not too young.” that would be kane, who first entered the business of test prep in 2004 with veritas prep in new york city. “I have tutored brilliant people from all over the world, and i have seen every way you can think about these test problems,” he says. “People don’t get to learn from their students the way i have. The volume of tutoring is where i became an expert. That is the 10,000-hour business.” ‘i am the sum total of the thousands of people i tutored’ kane is that rare person whose eyes light up when talking about standardized tests, even more so when it’s the gmat which he considers one of the best-designed standardized tests that anyone can take. “It is my job to diagnose what you need, prescribe the right drugs for improvement, and choose the problems that are going to help you the most,” he says, as if he were a practicing md. “I am the sum total of the thousands of people i tutored.” from an idyllic perch in bar harbor, maine, a place known for its natural beauty in acadia national park, he tutors his students via zoom. Though he spent nearly a decade tutoring students in their apartments and in new york’s investment banks, kane is most at home in maine where he has spent the last seven years in a house he built with his own hands. when it comes to the debate between the gmat and the gre, kane has a clear preference. He has a deep belief that the gmat yosemite national park is an exquisite test. “I love the gmat,” he says emphatically. “I love what it assesses. I know there are problems with standardized tests, but it is less true of the gmat. When i think about the best standardized tests, it comes down to the gmat and the lsat. I have done this for 20 years because i believe what the gmat is testing is very valuable. I see many false positives in standardized tests: people who did well and got lucky. But with the gmat, i can think of literally a few cases.” if you grew up in a lower socioeconomic neighborhood, you are at a disadvantage with the gmat chris kane of menlo coaching chris kane of menlo coaching of course, he has heard all the complaints about whether standardized tests in general are biased against women, minorities and international students who read and speak english as a second language. Kane agrees that there are unfair biases in the tests. “There are people who don’t do well but should be admitted to the top programs,” he believes. “let’s imagine you are a brilliant kid growing up in a difficult school system in a lower socioeconomic neighborhood and you get a really bad education. You are at an immediate disadvantage with the quality of your underlying education. To some degree, a standardized test is an assessment of your education broadly. It is pretty hard to re-learn a lot of the underlying math for a test like this, even if you are an incredibly brilliant person. It can be a little unfair in that regard.” regardless, he strongly believes that the gmat, including the most recent shorter version of the test, is a superior exam to the gre. “I have always said that a lot of the complaints with standardized tests are valid because they are poorly made,” believes kane. “There is nothing worse than a poorly made standardized test, like state assessment exams. Teachers are frustrated because they have to teach to a test that is poorly made. When you have a well-made standardized test like the gmat, that makes you think the right way, it’s great.” why he thinks the gmat is superior to the gre kane turns thumbs down on the gre which has gained significant market share over the gmat for business school admissions. “The gre is too general a test in my opinion,” he says flatly. “It’s a test for people going to get mfas in poetry and this huge range of graduate education so it’s a weird test that way. You are competing against people who are going on to do very different things. The quant section is less difficult to be sure and it feels a little bit more like a math test. There is less reasoning. When people struggle with the gmat quant they can often do better on the quant gre. The verbal is different. However, i am not sure how important that is for predicting a person’s success in business school. At its core. Some of the gre content like geometry is so far removed from anything you do in business. So it is a weird choice for solving business problems.” “the gmat,” he continues, “predicts who is going to perform well in business school and who you want to sit next to in the top mba programs. What they are assessing is the way you think. Are you hyper-vigilant and good at being critical? Can you deal with problem-solving? And at the same time, it is a test to make sure you have the requisite skills to get through a rigorous mba program. “ there’s only one thing about the updated gmat that he finds perplexing. The change in scoring has made it much more difficult to score above 750. A 750 on the old gmat, which put a test taker in the 98th percentile, will convert to just a 695 on the new gmat focus edition. Instead of a top score of 800, the new gmat now has a top score of 805. what this gmat tutor doesn’t understand about the gmat focus edition “it’s the one part of this shift to the gmat focus edition that i have a hard time understanding.,” He says. “To get to that elite 49, you have to get an 84 on the new scale system and there are still six points above that to differentiate. You can take a little bit less time to prep and focus more on problem-solving skills. Data insights are still evolving. I am getting reports from students who say that the questions differed greatly from the practice tests. So that is still changing and they made some big changes in their question distribution. More data sufficiency now than before. It won’t settle into what it is going to be until the end of this year.” one thing is certain: a mistake on the new test is more costly than ever before. “They are definitely using a new scoring algorithm with the new test that allows them to score you with fewer items,” says kane. “You can’t make mistakes on this new test. You’ve got 21 questions on the quant side and if you miss easy or moderate questions it is really punishing because there are fewer items to assess. In chess, when you lose to a bad player, it really hurts you. When you lose to an easy-to-moderate question, it hurts you on a computer adaptive test. Your floor is much more important than your ceiling.” another big difference in his view? “Before yo had to nail two sections, quant and verbal. The writing didn’t matter that much. Now you need to nail it on three different sections and if you have a bad day on one section your score is going to be negatively impacted. I am seeing more variability in scoring than before.” kane, who does one-on-one tutoring at $450 an hour as well as gmat prep classes with menlo’s director of tutoring hailey cusimano, says it doesn’t take all that much work to help a client achieve his or her goals. “I can usually provide what i need in no more than 14 hours of tutoring,” he says. “This is with a lot of self-study provided. As soon as a session is done, clients get their recording and i assign them a to-do list until the next session. Tutoring should have a super high-value takeaway. A great challenge is always trying to figure out how can i get the score up for this one person. I am going to work very hard to get you where you need to go. I am very confident in my approach.” how to take a gmat prep course or get kane as a tutor don’t miss: advanced gmat preparation for top percentile scores chris kane, menlo coaching chris kane on tangerine trip, el capitan, yosemite national park ‘i just took the gmat cold’ like so many professionals, he sort of stumbled into the field. An avid mountain climber, he spent half his time in yosemite national park while an undergraduate student at stanford university. Kane worked on the search-and-rescue team, an experience that naturally led him to guide climbers. After earning his ba in 1993, he sat for the gmat, thinking that business school might be an option. At the time, the exam was still a paper-and-pencil test. “i just took the gmat cold,” recalls kane. “I got high scores all my life in standardized tests. I just like the way you have to think for these tests. I got a 760 the first time taking it, a 99th percentile score.” despite his impressive showing on the test, he rejected the idea of an mba and decided to follow his passion. Kane launched a guiding business at the age of 23, ultimately spending a full decade guiding climbers up and down the rocky cliffs of acadia national park in maine. an experienced rock climber who became a gmat tutor kane moved to new york city and concedes he was “a little lost about what to do” so he finally applied and got into business school. before starting his mba, however, he spotted an ad from a firm called veritas prep and decided to answer it. Given his gmat test score, his stanford undergraduate degree, and his experience as a guide, kane was quickly interviewed, in part because the father of a veritas co-founder, marcus moberg, was a climber. “he saw my resume and said, ‘i got to talk to this guy.’ Marcus and i really hit it off. hired to teach some of the larger gmat classes in new york. Kane was a natural teacher. “I loved it and took right to it,” he remembers. “It was the same job as guiding and rock climbing. It is taking people and getting people through something that is very uncomfortable. I did a lot of one-on-one guiding.” ‘test prep companies prey on the fact that we are used to content tests’ he loved it so much, in fact, that he decided not to go for that mba. “That was in 2004. I was never one to work in corporate america. I was lucky to start doing it in new york where i got to work with so many smart people. I learned so much about preparing people the right way.” kane left veritas in 2019 after 15 years of tutoring after the firm was acquired by varsity tutors. He built his own curriculum and began teaching online courses and tutoring on his own until joining up with mba admissions consultant menlo coaching in 2020. not surprisingly, perhaps, he does not have a favorable view of most test prep companies. “They really prey on the fact that we are used to content tests,” he says. “People think if they beat this test into submission by practicing they will do well. I don’t believe that is true. You have to solve the right problems and get the right takeaways. If you are not getting the proper takeaways to solve each problem, you are not going to improve” (see kane’s how to create a realistic gmat study plan ). the cons and traps in the gmat exam higher education flows deeply in his veins. His father first moved to maine to help start a liberal arts college in the state back in the 1970s. His cousin’s husband has a phd in education from harvard. “He is just fascinated by this whole part of learning and what is missing from improvement in education. Everyone i teach is a college graduate and these people are scoring in the 90th percentile among highly educated people. It is what has kept me in this game for so long because it is always intellectually engaging. The fact that i get to teach these brilliant people fills me with gratitude.” what he discovered in tutoring some 5,000 people is that most are more comfortable preparing for a content test with rote memorization. “They think that if they just memorize these things, they will do well. One woman i tutored was one of the most brilliant math minds i ever had in a class. She went through the course, took the test, and didn’t perform that well in the quant. What i quickly realized in tutoring her was that she wasn’t dealing with that con component of the math. There is a lot of critical thinking. She was not focusing on that. She focused on the math. What it proves is that just having the quant doesn’t get you to the elite level and sometimes it doesn’t get you to the gold standard of a 49.” in another instance, kane recalls tutoring a student in new york. “He knew everything. A week before the exam, i saw him for the last session and he looked like he had the flu. If he had taken it one more time, he would have gotten a 750 but he got a 690 and it was all test day anxiety. Because he didn’t do well the first time. He ended up going to booth. I did help him but it was hard and it took a few tries.” the gmat; a question of a thousand brilliant cons yet another client who already was enrolled in a phd program and had exceptional math skills struggled on the gmat. “It was because the person treated it as a math test when it is a quantitative reasoning test,” explains kane. “A great challenge is always trying to figure out how can i get the score up for this one person. You are not always going to have success. Some of that can be test day anxiety. We use a few mindfulness coaches and that is helpful.“ in tutoring clients, kane unravels what he calls the “cons” and “traps” in the test. “For the quant,” he says, “you need to know what you need to know and very few people come in knowing what they need to know. If you haven’t done math since fifth grade, you need a refresh. It’s not hard math but you need to know it well. I am not doing a lot of rote repetition. I focus on what a person is most likely to make mistakes on. I give them smart drills that elicit the errors they would make on a gmat question. “by doing the right problems,” kane adds, “you are improving your know-how but more importantly you are seeking the tricks and traps. If you want to use an analogy, it’s a question of a thousand brilliant cons. How does a con work? If you think about a great con man, you think about something that happens that you get a dopamine response. You find something clever that leads you to what you think is a correct problem. Because everyone is satisfied that they found the trap, they let down their guard.” kane coaches clients not to fall for those gmat cons. It’s something he greatly enjoys and forsees doing for many more years. “i am an experienced doctor now, and i will always tutor,” he says. “You’ve got to be in the game. how to take a gmat prep course or get kane as a tutor don’t miss: advanced gmat preparation for top percentile scores the post ‘i love the gmat’: this gmat doctor has diagnosed more than 4,000 test takers appeared first on poets&quants . view comments

    Kansas City Chiefs’ Isaiah Buggs arrested in Alabama over alleged burglary charg
    Posted on Monday, June 17 @ 00:00:10 PDT (50 reads)
    College Guide Kansas city chiefs’ isaiah buggs was arrested sunday in connection with a burglary charge in tuscaloosa, alabama, where he is already facing charges of animal cruelty after police seized two malnourished dogs. According to jail records, buggs was arrested on a charge of second-degree domestic violence burglary and posted a $5,000 surety bond. A photo of the 27-year-old defensive tackle was included in the records. Trey robinson, an agent for buggs, did not immediately return a request for comment. Alabama law states that a domestic violence burglary charge .Pdf) is issued when the victim of the alleged crime is a parent, child, a current or former romantic partner of the suspect. The charge may also apply if the victim shares a child or a household with the suspect. A representative for the tuscaloosa police department said buggs was charged after officers responded to a residence after getting a 911 call at 5:28 a.M. Sunday. He was held on a 12-hour domestic violence hold before being released on bond. Court documents were not immediately available. Buggs received his super bowl ring along with the rest of the chiefs on thursday. His instagram account currently only has one post, which is a series of images from the ceremony. He also posted a selfie video on his instagram stories on saturday, writing that he was proud of his “growth as a man & as a father.” Buggs is already facing misdemeanor animal cruelty charges after the tuscaloosa police officers were called to a residence and found two dogs on a screened-in back porch surrounded by feces with no access to food or water. Both dogs, a pit bull and a rottweiler mix, were found “severely malnourished, emaciated and neglected,” according to court documents. Neighbors said the dogs had been out on the porch for at least 10 days. One of the two animals, a gray and white pit bull, was euthanized over increasing aggressiveness and failure to respond to heartworm treatment. Witnesses told police that buggs rented the residence until mid to late march 19 and the documents state the agreement was terminated in april because more than $3,000 in back rent was owed. Robinson said at the time that his client “vehemently denies” the allegations. He added that the dogs do not belong to buggs and his client was not aware they were at still at the property. “Under no circumstance does mr. Buggs condone the mistreatment of any animal,” robinson said in an emailed statement. The chiefs, who recently won their third super bowl in four years, have had an off-season filled with controversial headlines. Buggs’ teammate, rashee rice, had his own legal struggles following the team’s championship win in february. He surrendered to police in april on charges including aggravated assault after driving a speeding sports car that allegedly caused a chain collision in dallas. Rice was also suspected in an assault that injured a man in dallas last month . Rice is still under investigation by police, though the man declined to pursue charges. Chiefs kicker harrison butker was the subject of internet outrage after he made a divisive commencement speech at benedictine college in atchison, kansas. Butker railed against abortion, pride month and covid-19 lockdown measures. He also told the women in the graduating class that they have been told “diabolical lies” about their futures and that one of the “most important” titles a woman can hold is homemaker. Women flooded the comment sections of the chiefs’ social media posts, either directly calling on the team to condemn butker’s comments or making sarcastic cracks about a woman’s role. Franchise stars patrick mahomes and travis kelce individually addressed butker’s comments after the backlash, distancing themselves from the essence of the controversy while defending butker as a teammate. Both players essentially said that while they do not agree with much of the speech, they each respect butker’s right to his own opinions. This story originally appeared on nbcnews.Com.

    I felt like a criminal: Record number of women facing illegal abortion investiga
    Posted on Monday, June 17 @ 00:00:10 PDT (4 reads)
    College Guide Sarahs front room is filled with pictures of her smiling baby. Hes now 18 months old. But for almost a year, she was investigated on suspicion of illegally trying to abort him. In january 2023, sarah (not her real name) had just delivered her baby prematurely. She called 999 but before paramedics turned up, police came knocking at her door. the front room was just full of police, sarah tells sky news. I felt like a criminal. her pregnancy was unplanned and she had considered a termination. She went to an abortion clinic but was told she was three days over the legal limit of 24 weeks. i wasnt expecting to be that far gone, she says. I was hardly showing. It was a massive shock. when she got home, she panicked and started searching adoption, and adoption to friends and family, online. She even put abortion pills in her online shopping basket - but never bought them. after a few days, sarah came to terms with the pregnancy. But on the monday morning, she wasnt feeling very well and called in sick to work. throughout the day, id had back pain and wasnt getting any better, she says. And then at about seven in the evening, eight maybe, i went upstairs to the toilet... And he was here. i rang my husband who was downstairs to say i think ive just had a baby. he was born at 25 weeks, almost three months premature. He wasnt breathing. His parents wrapped him in a towel and took him downstairs. he was blue in colour, there was no movement. It was horrible, sarah says. when her husband rang 999, the paramedics gave cpr instructions on the phone. But before they arrived, the police came. it was the start of an investigation that would last a year. the police force involved said it attended to assist medical professionals and ensure necessary statutory processes were followed - as they would with any involving the potential for the sudden unexplained death of a baby or a child. it was quickly identified that there was information to suggest a criminal offence may have been committed, the force added. sarahs case was dropped earlier this year and is no longer active. her story comes as the british society of abortion care providers and the british pregnancy advice service (bpas) - one of the main licensed abortion clinics - today issue a statement saying women under investigation on suspicion of illegally abortions are incredibly distressed that a vote on abortion law wont take place this parliamentary term. as soon as the new parliament returns in july, it must urgently act, bpas says. before the general election was called, mps were due to debate abortion law. amendments to the criminal justice bill aimed at stopping women facing criminal sanction for ending their pregnancy had been proposed. a national scandal theres an increasing number of women who are facing investigation and suspicion that they have had an illegal abortion, says jonathan lord, an nhs consultant gynaecologist and co-chair of the british society of abortion care providers. anecdotally, he knows of up to 100 women who have been investigated in the last year, which he says is unprecedented. what these women are going through and the horrific way theyve been treated... Its a national scandal, he adds. dr lord says hes seen a rise in police approaching abortion providers for records and information about women who had considered an abortion. responding to police inquiries has become a major part of his job. in no other field of medicine would you expect the police to ask for medical records, they are confidential for a reason, he tells sky news. the official numbers are lower than what dr lord reports, but still at record levels. between 2022 and 2023, 29 people in england and wales were recorded as under police investigation on suspicion of procuring an illegal abortion - the highest in two decades. and freedom of information data for sky news shows theres been a rise in the number of people taken to court for this offence. between 2010 and 2019, 17 cases reached court in england and wales. Only six of those cases resulted in a conviction. Thats about a third. but in just a few years, between 2020 and 2023, 11 cases went to court. Almost half of those (five) resulted in a conviction. an illegal abortion is any attempt to procure a miscarriage where its not signed off by two doctors, or the medication hasnt been prescribed. experts cant fully explain what is fuelling this but suggest a combination of factors might be at play, including increased police awareness of the ease of at home abortions. prosecutions not in public interest in england, wales and scotland, it is legal to terminate a pregnancy up to 24 weeks in an nhs clinic or approved abortion provider, with the permission of two doctors. In northern ireland, abortion was fully decriminalised in 2020. women can have a surgical abortion or they can take two pills - known as a medical termination. since covid, the pills by post scheme became a permanent measure. It means both pills can be taken at home in the early stages of pregnancy following an online telephone consultation. having a termination outside of these circumstances in england and wales is illegal under the 1861 offences against the person act. The maximum penalty is life in prison. i think abortion care should come under the umbrella of healthcare, says lucie baylis, an unplanned pregnancy nurse at royal cornwall nhs hospital. i dont think there is any public interest in prosecuting women who seek abortion outside of the legal parameters. earlier this year, new guidance was issued by the royal college of obstetricians and gynaecologists urging medics not to report patients if they suspect a woman of illegally ending their own pregnancy. in the first official guidance issued of its kind, it says a healthcare worker must justify any disclosure of patient data or face potential fitness to practise proceedings. ms baylis said it seems mad women should be passed to police or authorities rather than handled as a healthcare patient. law should follow the science but others think moves to change the law are irresponsible and would only have the impact of incentivising women to have late-term abortions by themselves, with no medical oversights, says calum miller, a doctor and medical ethics professor at the university of oxford. the current law acts as a deterrent to stop this, he says. data from other countries is very clear that when you make a certain kind of abortion legal, it does become more common. as an example, in new zealand, there was a 43% increase in abortions after 20 weeks, he says. dr miller feels proposed amendments have the aim of legalising abortion up until birth, which isn’t in step with british public opinion. in an october yougov poll, 25% of people said they thought the current 24-week legal limit was too late and should be reduced, while 49% said it was about right, and 6% believed it should be extended. abortion laws should follow the science. And it should say at the very least that if a baby is potentially viable, abortion should not be an option, says dr miller. while sarah accepts why she was investigated - for looking for pills online - she is still struggling with the impact the investigation has had on her life. it never leaves your mind, she says. having to live with it for 50-odd weeks… you think am i going to get a knock on the door? Are we going to get taken away? read more: inside social medias illicit abortion trade new law for abortion clinic buffer zones backed by msps the police force involved with sarahs case told us: immediate action was taken to secure evidence to ensure that a thorough investigation could take place. this was a complex investigation, requiring extensive forensic and medical evidence, and unfortunately these kind of enquiries take time. the national police chiefs council and the crown prosecution service also say these investigations are rare and would only be initiated where there is credible information to suggest criminal activity... Often as a result of concerns raised from medical professionals. they say they come with unique factors and personal circumstances that are carefully considered.

But before they arrived, the police came. it was the start of an investigation that would last a year. the police force involved said it attended to assist medical professionals and ensure necessary statutory processes were followed - as they would with any involving the potential for the sudden unexplained death of a baby or a child. it was quickly identified that there was information to suggest a criminal offence may have been committed, the force added. sarahs case was dropped earlier this year and is no longer active. her story comes as the british society of abortion care providers and the british pregnancy advice service (bpas) - one of the main licensed abortion clinics - today issue a statement saying women under investigation on suspicion of illegally abortions are incredibly distressed that a vote on abortion law wont take place this parliamentary term. as soon as the new parliament returns in july, it must urgently act, bpas says. before the general election was called, mps were due to debate abortion law. amendments to the criminal justice bill aimed at stopping women facing criminal sanction for ending their pregnancy had been proposed. a national scandal theres an increasing number of women who are facing investigation and suspicion that they have had an illegal abortion, says jonathan lord, an nhs consultant gynaecologist and co-chair of the british society of abortion care providers. anecdotally, he knows of up to 100 women who have been investigated in the last year, which he says is unprecedented. what these women are going through and the horrific way theyve been treated... Its a national scandal, he adds. dr lord says hes seen a rise in police approaching abortion providers for records and information about women who had considered an abortion. responding to police inquiries has become a major part of his job. in no other field of medicine would you expect the police to ask for medical records, they are confidential for a reason, he tells sky news. the official numbers are lower than what dr lord reports, but still at record levels. between 2022 and 2023, 29 people in england and wales were recorded as under police investigation on suspicion of procuring an illegal abortion - the highest in two decades. and freedom of information data for sky news shows theres been a rise in the number of people taken to court for this offence. between 2010 and 2019, 17 cases reached court in england and wales. Only six of those cases resulted in a conviction. Thats about a third. but in just a few years, between 2020 and 2023, 11 cases went to court. Almost half of those (five) resulted in a conviction. an illegal abortion is any attempt to procure a miscarriage where its not signed off by two doctors, or the medication hasnt been prescribed. experts cant fully explain what is fuelling this but suggest a combination of factors might be at play, including increased police awareness of the ease of at home abortions. prosecutions not in public interest in england, wales and scotland, it is legal to terminate a pregnancy up to 24 weeks in an nhs clinic or approved abortion provider, with the permission of two doctors. In northern ireland, abortion was fully decriminalised in 2020. women can have a surgical abortion or they can take two pills - known as a medical termination. since covid, the pills by post scheme became a permanent measure. It means both pills can be taken at home in the early stages of pregnancy following an online telephone consultation. having a termination outside of these circumstances in england and wales is illegal under the 1861 offences against the person act. The maximum penalty is life in prison. i think abortion care should come under the umbrella of healthcare, says lucie baylis, an unplanned pregnancy nurse at royal cornwall nhs hospital. i dont think there is any public interest in prosecuting women who seek abortion outside of the legal parameters. earlier this year, new guidance was issued by the royal college of obstetricians and gynaecologists urging medics not to report patients if they suspect a woman of illegally ending their own pregnancy. in the first official guidance issued of its kind, it says a healthcare worker must justify any disclosure of patient data or face potential fitness to practise proceedings. ms baylis said it seems mad women should be passed to police or authorities rather than handled as a healthcare patient. law should follow the science but others think moves to change the law are irresponsible and would only have the impact of incentivising women to have late-term abortions by themselves, with no medical oversights, says calum miller, a doctor and medical ethics professor at the university of oxford. the current law acts as a deterrent to stop this, he says. data from other countries is very clear that when you make a certain kind of abortion legal, it does become more common. as an example, in new zealand, there was a 43% increase in abortions after 20 weeks, he says. dr miller feels proposed amendments have the aim of legalising abortion up until birth, which isn’t in step with british public opinion. in an october yougov poll, 25% of people said they thought the current 24-week legal limit was too late and should be reduced, while 49% said it was about right, and 6% believed it should be extended. abortion laws should follow the science. And it should say at the very least that if a baby is potentially viable, abortion should not be an option, says dr miller. while sarah accepts why she was investigated - for looking for pills online - she is still struggling with the impact the investigation has had on her life. it never leaves your mind, she says. having to live with it for 50-odd weeks… you think am i going to get a knock on the door? Are we going to get taken away? read more: inside social medias illicit abortion trade new law for abortion clinic buffer zones backed by msps the police force involved with sarahs case told us: immediate action was taken to secure evidence to ensure that a thorough investigation could take place. this was a complex investigation, requiring extensive forensic and medical evidence, and unfortunately these kind of enquiries take time. the national police chiefs council and the crown prosecution service also say these investigations are rare and would only be initiated where there is credible information to suggest criminal activity... Often as a result of concerns raised from medical professionals. they say they come with unique factors and personal circumstances that are carefully considered.

    Who will Donald Trump choose as his running mate? - Gorgeous Radio
    Posted on Monday, June 17 @ 00:00:10 PDT (4 reads)
    College Guide Donald trump needs to choose a running mate for the 2024 election, and rumour has it hes treating it like his old tv show: the apprentice. After a rather high-profile falling out with mike pence, the republican nominee is deciding who could be his next vice president. He is expected to reveal his choice at the republican national convention next month. Lets take a look at who the candidates are... And why each of one might hear those famous words: youre hired!. Doug burgum north dakota governor doug burgum hoped his small-town values would appeal to republican voters enough to choose him as the presidential nominee. It didnt work, but does it make him an appealing pick for vp? The 67-year-old former software company executive has stressed his humble origins and previously said the next us president should be someone whos held jobs where you shower at the end of the day, not at the beginning. Youre hired: burgum might be a safe pair of hands due to his experience in the worlds of politics and business, and his independent wealth (north of $100m) could be useful campaign funds. Youre fired: north dakota is as red as they come, so picking burgum doesnt come with the advantage of moving the dial in a swing state. Marco rubio one of floridas two republican senators, marco rubio is the son of cuban immigrants who fled to miami during the batista dictatorship. He ran for the republican presidential nomination in 2016 but dropped out after losing the florida primary to trump, who relentlessly mocked him as little marco. Youre hired: he brings strong foreign policy credentials, having served on the senate foreign relations and intelligence committees, and has a track record of attracting latino voters. Youre fired: rubio has drawn criticism from the maga (make america great again) movement in the past for his immigration reform legislation which could pose a problem for him, even though he has since renounced his own deal. Theres also the wrinkle that the us constitution appears to possibly prohibit electoral college electors from voting for inhabitants of their states for both president and vice president. Jd vance a us marines veteran, jd vance rose to become senator for ohio after growing up in poverty. He once described himself as a never trumper but has since u-turned into being a reliable supporter of the donald, even attending court in new york to support him at his hush money trial. Youre hired: vance aligns with trumps populist mindset and would likely be palatable to the maga base - perhaps even as a potential successor one day. Youre fired: ohio hasnt voted democrat since 2012 so appointing vance likely doesnt give trump a second-in-command pick who could help get him over the line in a swing state. Tim scott the only black republican us senator, tim scott launched a bid to become the republican presidential nominee but later withdrew from the race. He has since been name-dropped by trump himself as a possible vice presidential pick. Scott has accused president joe biden and the radical left of attacking every rung of the ladder that helped me climb. Youre hired: scott is seen as a potential asset to trump both on a policy front and in helping to cut democratic margins, particularly with black and hispanic male voters. Youre fired: scott has been outspoken about his support for a federal abortion ban in the aftermath of the fall of roe v wade, whereas trump has said the decision should be left to individual states. Byron donalds in terms of having a similar name to trump, byron donalds certainly has the edge over the other potential vp candidates. Donalds, 45, is a congressman from florida who has been a supporter of the former president since he entered congress. He voted against the certification of electors from arizona and pennsylvania and is a 2020 election denier. Youre hired: donalds is a strong debater with experience on tv who could help the trump campaign reach out to black voters. Youre fired: donalds has a limited national profile and could face a similar constitutional predicament as marco rubio as he also lives in florida. Elise stefanik a republican congresswoman from new york, elise stefaniks profile has been on the rise in the gop (grand old party) for years. She shot to fame after her questioning of university presidents about antisemitism led to a huge outcry and fallout. In may, she addressed the knesset in israel and lambasted the biden administrations approach to its ally. Youre hired: one of the few women thought to be on the vp shortlist, stefanik could help shore up trumps support among female and suburban voters as well as bring youth to the ticket. Youre fired: stefanik hails from new york, a solidly blue state, so her inclusion on the ticket is unlikely to help bring more electoral college votes to trumps side. Ben carson ben carson, 72, served in trumps administration last time around as secretary for housing and urban development. His time in government came after he briefly ran for the republican nomination in 2016 before eventually pulling out of the race and endorsing trump. Youre hired: carson hails from michigan, a battleground state that is likely to be among the most crucial races to watch on election night. Youre fired: though well-known, if trump is looking for an attack dog vp then carson might not be the right candidate. Hes not considered to be the most outspoken or charismatic pick.

She was elected to congress in 2020 and quickly became a powerful - and vocal - player in the republican party.

As time has gone on she appears to be an increasingly unlikely choice for vp. Youre hired: noem brings experience as a state governor and fits in with trumps maga crowd. Youre fired: she has been a supporter of the abortion restrictions in her state, where there is a near-total ban except when necessary to save the life of the mother. This hardline stance could make her a liability in a general election where public support for abortion access is high.

Featuring an ensemble cast, the film is about a young white woman, eugenie skeeter phelan, and her relationship with two black maids during civil rights era america (the early [1960s](/wiki/1960)). Skeeter is a journalist who decides to write a book from the point of view of the maids (referred to as the help), exposing the racism they are faced with as they work for white families. set in jackson, mississippi, it stars [emma stone](/wiki/emma_stone), [viola davis](/wiki/viola_davis), [octavia spencer](/wiki/octavia_spencer), [bryce dallas howard](/wiki/bryce_dallas_howard), [jessica chastain](/wiki/jessica_chastain), sissy spacek, mike vogel, [mary steenburgen](/wiki/mary_steenburgen), and [allison janney](/wiki/allison_janney). Produced by dreamworks pictures and distributed by [walt disney studios motion pictures](/wiki/walt_disney_studios_motion_pictures) under the [touchstone pictures](/wiki/touchstone_pictures) banner, the film opened to positive reviews and became a box-office success with a gross of $211.6 million against its budget of $25 million. in february [2012](/wiki/2012), the film received four academy award nominations including best picture, best actress for davis, best supporting actress for chastain, and a win for best supporting actress for spencer. On [january 29](/wiki/january_29), 2012, the film won the screen actors guild award for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture. plot aibileen clark (viola davis) is a middle-aged black maid who has spent her life raising white children and has recently lost her only son. Minny jackson (octavia spencer) is another black maid and aibileens best friend whose outspokenness has gotten her fired a number of times; she has built up a reputation for being a difficult employee, but she makes up for this with her phenomenal cooking skills. eugenia skeeter phelan (emma stone) is a young white woman who has recently moved back home to her familys plantation after graduating from the university of mississippi[4] to find that her beloved childhood maid, constantine (cicely tyson), has quit while she was away. Skeeter is skeptical, because she believes constantine would not have left without writing to her. unlike her friends, who attended university to find husbands (and are now all married and having children), skeeter is single, has a degree, and wants to begin a career as a writer. Her first job is as a homemaker hints columnist in the local paper. With constantine gone, skeeter asks aibileen, the maid to her good friend elizabeth (ahna oreilly), for her help in answering domestic questions. Skeeter becomes uncomfortable with the attitude her friends have towards their help, especially hilly holbrook (bryce dallas howard) and her home help sanitation initiative, a proposed bill to provide for separate toilets for black help because she believes (as she puts it) that black people carry different diseases to white people. Amidst the era of discrimination based on color, skeeter is one of the few who believe otherwise, and she decides to write a book based on the lives of the maids who have spent their entire lives taking care of white children. the maids are at first reluctant to talk to skeeter, because they are afraid that they will lose their jobs or worse. Aibileen is the first to share her stories, after she overhears hillys initiative, and realizes that the children whom she has been raising are growing up to be just like their parents. Her friend minny has just been fired as hillys maid as a punishment for minny using the bathroom during a thunderstorm (revealed by aibileen to have spawned a tornado and killed eighteen people: ten white, eight black), instead of going to use the separate outdoor toilet. Hilly poisons all the other families against minny, making it impossible for her to find other work, and her daughter is forced to drop out of school to find a job as a maid. Minny initially declines to participate in skeeters book research, but later agrees to share her stories. Aibileen helps her find work with celia foote (jessica chastain), who is married to a rich socialite (mike vogel), but is an outcast from the other society ladies (as influenced by hilly), because she was born into a working-class family and her husband is hillys ex-boyfriend. Also, unlike hilly, celia treats minny with respect. skeeter writes a draft of the book, with minny and aibileens stories in it, and sends it to miss stein (mary steenburgen), an editor for harper & row in new york city, new york. Miss stein thinks there may be some interest in it, but requires at least a dozen more maids contributions before it can become a viable book. Believing that the book will only be publishable during the civil rights movement, which she believes is a passing fad, stein advises skeeter to finish the book soon. No one comes forward, until medgar evers is assassinated in jackson, mississippi, and hillys latest maid is brutally arrested (for attempting to pawn one of hillys rings, to pay for her twins college tuition, after hilly had refused to give her a loan). With racial tensions running high, the maids realize that skeeters book will give them an opportunity for their voices to be heard, and skeeter suddenly has numerous stories to include. Minny shares one last story with skeeter and aibileen, which she calls the terrible awful, to ensure that no one will reveal that the book was written about jackson, mississippi. As revenge for being fired and accused of stealing, minny bakes a chocolate pie and delivers it to hilly. After hilly has finished two slices, minny informs her that she has baked her own feces into the pie. Minny tells aibileen and skeeter that if they add that part into the book, hilly will try to prevent anyone from figuring out that she made her eat human feces and will convince the town that the book is not about jackson. The book is almost finished, except for skeeters own story of being brought up by constantine. Skeeter manages to find out what had happened to constantine, when her mother, charlotte (allison janney), finally explains that she reluctantly fired her in order to save face during a reception. Soon afterwards, feeling guilty about the incident since the phelans are quite close to their help, charlotte had sent skeeters brother to bring constantine home from chicago, illinois, where she was living with her daughter rachel, but he discovered that she had died, not long after leaving jackson. However, constantines daughter forgives them knowing that the family they served genuinely love them. the book is accepted for publication and is a success, much to the delight of skeeter and the maids. She shares her royalties with each of the maids who contributed, and is offered a job with a publishing company in new york city. She tells her boyfriend about the job and the book. Revolted by her ideas of racial equality, he immediately breaks up with her. Later in the afternoon, hilly hatches a plan to get rid of aibileen as elizabeths help, by falsely accusing her of stealing silver. Elizabeth tries to defend aibileen, but to no avail. Aibileen denounces hilly as a godless woman and tells her that she will never have peace if she continues her vindictive ways, leaving her in limbo. As aibileen tries to convince hilly and elizabeth of her innocence, elizabeths daughter, mae mobley, arrives and pleads with her not to go. Elizabeth is forced to accept the firing of aibileen, and mae mobley cries by the window, shouting for aibileen as she leaves to start a new life. cast [emma stone](/wiki/emma_stone)as eugenia skeeter phelan, a college graduate and aspiring writer.

Parts of the film were also shot in the real-life jackson, as well as in nearby clarksdale and greenville. One of the few locations that existed in 1963 jackson, the book and the film is jackson landmark brents drugs, which dates to 1946. Other locations that can still be found in jackson include the new capitol building and the mayflower cafe downtown. Scenes set at the jackson journal office were shot in clarksdale at the building which formerly housed the clarksdale press register for 40 years until april 2010. the help was the most significant film production in mississippi since o brother, where art thou? (2000) honestly, my heart would be broken if it were set anywhere but mississippi, stockett wrote in an e-mail to reporters. In order to convince producers to shoot in greenwood, tate taylor and others had previously come to the town and scouted out locations; at his first meeting with dreamworks executives, he presented them with a photo album of potential filming spots in the area. The states tax incentive program for filmmakers was also a key enticement in the decision. music the original song is the living proof by mary j. Blige.

On june 30, 2011, the films release date was rescheduled two days earlier to august 10, 2011. reception critical response the help received positive reviews from critics. Review aggregators rotten tomatoes reported that 76% of 197 professional critics gave the film a positive review, with an average score of 7/10. The sites consensus stated, though arguably guilty of glossing over its racial themes, the help rises on the strength of its cast—particularly viola davis, whose performance is powerful enough to carry the film on its own. Metacritic, a review aggregator which assigns a weighted average score out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, gives the film a score of 62 based on 41 reviews. Cinemascore polls reported that the average grade moviegoers gave the film was an a+ on an a+ to f scale. tom long from the detroit news remarked about the film: appealling, entertaining, touching and perhaps even a bit healing, the help is an old-fashioned grand yarn of a film, the sort we rarely get these days. Connie ogle of the miami herald gave the film three out of four stars and said it will make you laugh, yes, but it can also break your heart. In the dog days of august moviegoing, thats a powerful recommendation. more on the mixed side was karina longworth of the village voice: we get a fairly typical hollywood flattening of history, with powerful villains and disenfranchised heroes. Rick gloen of the globe and mail, giving the film two out of four stars, said: typically, this sort of film is an earnest tear-jerker with moments of levity. Instead, what we have here is a raucous rib-tickler with occasional pauses for a little dramatic relief. Referring to the film as a big, ole slab of honey-glazed hokum, the new york times noted that save for ms. Daviss, however, the performances are almost all overly broad, sometimes excruciatingly so, characterized by loud laughs, bugging eyes, and pumping limbs. some of the negative reviews criticized the film for its inability to match the books level of greatness. Chris hewitt of the st. Paul pioneer press said about the film: some adaptations find a fresh, cinematic way to convey a books spirit but the help doesnt. many critics praised the performances of davis and spencer. Wilson morales of blackfilm.Com gave the movie three out of four stars and commented, with powerful performances given by viola davis and scene stealer octavia spencer, the film is an emotionally, moving drama that remains highly entertaining. David edelstein from new york magazine commented that, the help belongs to viola davis. ida e. Jones, the national director of the association of black women historians, released an open statement criticizing the help in an open statement to the fans of the help. The letter stated that despite efforts to market the book and the film as a progressive story of triumph over racial injustice, the help distorts, ignores, and trivializes the experiences of black domestic workers. The group of scholars accused both the book and the film of insensitive portrayals of african-american vernacular, a nearly uniform depiction of black men as cruel or absent, and a failure to acknowledge the sexual harassment that many black women endured in their white employers homes. Jones concluded by saying that the association of black women historians finds it unacceptable for either this book or this film to strip black womens lives of historical accuracy for the sake of entertainment. roxane gay of literary web magazine the rumpus articulated reasons the film might be offensive to african americans, mentioning the films use of racial hollywood stereotypes like the magical negro and gone with the winds mammy. box office the film grossed $169,708,112 in north america, and $41,900,000 in other territories, for a worldwide total of $211,608,112. in north america, on its opening day (wednesday, august 10, 2011), it topped the box office with $5.54 million. It then added $4.33 million on thursday, declining only 21 percent, for a two-day total to $9.87 million. On its first weekend, the film grossed $26.0 million, coming in second place behind rise of the planet of the apes. However, during its second weekend, the film jumped to first place with $20.0 million, declining only 23 percent, the smallest drop among films playing nationwide. The film crossed the $100 million mark on its 21st day of release, becoming one of only two titles in august 2011 that achieved this. On its fourth weekend (labor day three-day weekend), it became the first film since inception (2010), to top the box-office charts for three consecutive weekends. Its four-day weekend haul of $19.9 million was the fourth largest for a labor-day weekend. Notably, the help topped the box office for 25 days in a row. This was the longest uninterrupted streak since the sixth sense (35 days), which was also a late summer release, in 1999. to promote the film, takepart.Com hosted a series of three writing contests. Rebecca lubin, of mill valley, california, who has been a nanny for nearly two decades won the recipe contest.

    I felt like a criminal: Record number of women facing illegal abortion investiga
    Posted on Monday, June 17 @ 00:00:10 PDT (4 reads)
    College Guide Sarahs front room is filled with pictures of her smiling baby. Hes now 18 months old. But for almost a year, she was investigated on suspicion of illegally trying to abort him. In january 2023, sarah (not her real name) had just delivered her baby prematurely. She called 999 but before paramedics turned up, police came knocking at her door. The front room was just full of police, sarah tells sky news. I felt like a criminal. Her pregnancy was unplanned and she had considered a termination. She went to an abortion clinic but was told she was three days over the legal limit of 24 weeks. I wasnt expecting to be that far gone, she says. I was hardly showing. It was a massive shock. When she got home, she panicked and started searching adoption, and adoption to friends and family, online. She even put abortion pills in her online shopping basket - but never bought them. After a few days, sarah came to terms with the pregnancy. But on the monday morning, she wasnt feeling very well and called in sick to work. Throughout the day, id had back pain and wasnt getting any better, she says. And then at about seven in the evening, eight maybe, i went upstairs to the toilet... And he was here. I rang my husband who was downstairs to say i think ive just had a baby. He was born at 25 weeks, almost three months premature. He wasnt breathing. His parents wrapped him in a towel and took him downstairs. He was blue in colour, there was no movement. It was horrible, sarah says. When her husband rang 999, the paramedics gave cpr instructions on the phone. But before they arrived, the police came. It was the start of an investigation that would last a year. The police force involved said it attended to assist medical professionals and ensure necessary statutory processes were followed - as they would with any involving the potential for the sudden unexplained death of a baby or a child. It was quickly identified that there was information to suggest a criminal offence may have been committed, the force added. Sarahs case was dropped earlier this year and is no longer active. Her story comes as the british society of abortion care providers and the british pregnancy advice service (bpas) - one of the main licensed abortion clinics - today issue a statement saying women under investigation on suspicion of illegally abortions are incredibly distressed that a vote on abortion law wont take place this parliamentary term. As soon as the new parliament returns in july, it must urgently act, bpas says. Before the general election was called, mps were due to debate abortion law. Amendments to the criminal justice bill aimed at stopping women facing criminal sanction for ending their pregnancy had been proposed. A national scandal theres an increasing number of women who are facing investigation and suspicion that they have had an illegal abortion, says jonathan lord, an nhs consultant gynaecologist and co-chair of the british society of abortion care providers. Anecdotally, he knows of up to 100 women who have been investigated in the last year, which he says is unprecedented. What these women are going through and the horrific way theyve been treated... Its a national scandal, he adds. Dr lord says hes seen a rise in police approaching abortion providers for records and information about women who had considered an abortion. Responding to police inquiries has become a major part of his job. In no other field of medicine would you expect the police to ask for medical records, they are confidential for a reason, he tells sky news. The official numbers are lower than what dr lord reports, but still at record levels. Between 2022 and 2023, 29 people in england and wales were recorded as under police investigation on suspicion of procuring an illegal abortion - the highest in two decades. And freedom of information data for sky news shows theres been a rise in the number of people taken to court for this offence. Between 2010 and 2019, 17 cases reached court in england and wales. Only six of those cases resulted in a conviction. Thats about a third. But in just a few years, between 2020 and 2023, 11 cases went to court. Almost half of those (five) resulted in a conviction. An illegal abortion is any attempt to procure a miscarriage where its not signed off by two doctors, or the medication hasnt been prescribed. Experts cant fully explain what is fuelling this but suggest a combination of factors might be at play, including increased police awareness of the ease of at home abortions. Prosecutions not in public interest in england, wales and scotland, it is legal to terminate a pregnancy up to 24 weeks in an nhs clinic or approved abortion provider, with the permission of two doctors. In northern ireland, abortion was fully decriminalised in 2020. Women can have a surgical abortion or they can take two pills - known as a medical termination. Since covid, the pills by post scheme became a permanent measure. It means both pills can be taken at home in the early stages of pregnancy following an online telephone consultation. Having a termination outside of these circumstances in england and wales is illegal under the 1861 offences against the person act. The maximum penalty is life in prison. I think abortion care should come under the umbrella of healthcare, says lucie baylis, an unplanned pregnancy nurse at royal cornwall nhs hospital. I dont think there is any public interest in prosecuting women who seek abortion outside of the legal parameters. Earlier this year, new guidance was issued by the royal college of obstetricians and gynaecologists urging medics not to report patients if they suspect a woman of illegally ending their own pregnancy. In the first official guidance issued of its kind, it says a healthcare worker must justify any disclosure of patient data or face potential fitness to practise proceedings. Ms baylis said it seems mad women should be passed to police or authorities rather than handled as a healthcare patient. Law should follow the science but others think moves to change the law are irresponsible and would only have the impact of incentivising women to have late-term abortions by themselves, with no medical oversights, says calum miller, a doctor and medical ethics professor at the university of oxford. The current law acts as a deterrent to stop this, he says. Data from other countries is very clear that when you make a certain kind of abortion legal, it does become more common. As an example, in new zealand, there was a 43% increase in abortions after 20 weeks, he says. Dr miller feels proposed amendments have the aim of legalising abortion up until birth, which isn’t in step with british public opinion. In an october yougov poll, 25% of people said they thought the current 24-week legal limit was too late and should be reduced, while 49% said it was about right, and 6% believed it should be extended. Abortion laws should follow the science. And it should say at the very least that if a baby is potentially viable, abortion should not be an option, says dr miller. While sarah accepts why she was investigated - for looking for pills online - she is still struggling with the impact the investigation has had on her life. It never leaves your mind, she says. Having to live with it for 50-odd weeks… you think am i going to get a knock on the door? Are we going to get taken away? Read more: inside social medias illicit abortion trade new law for abortion clinic buffer zones backed by msps the police force involved with sarahs case told us: immediate action was taken to secure evidence to ensure that a thorough investigation could take place. This was a complex investigation, requiring extensive forensic and medical evidence, and unfortunately these kind of enquiries take time. The national police chiefs council and the crown prosecution service also say these investigations are rare and would only be initiated where there is credible information to suggest criminal activity... Often as a result of concerns raised from medical professionals. They say they come with unique factors and personal circumstances that are carefully considered.

    13 Medications You Should Avoid While Pregnant
    Posted on Monday, June 17 @ 00:00:10 PDT (3 reads)
    College Guide Wellness reproductive health pregnancy 13 medications you should avoid while pregnant by lindsay curtis lindsay curtis lindsay curtis is a freelance health & medical writer in south florida. Prior to becoming a freelancer, she worked as a communications professional for health nonprofits and the university of toronto’s faculty of medicine and faculty of nursing. Healths editorial guidelines published on june 16, 2024 medically reviewed by peter weiss, md medically reviewed by peter weiss, md peter weiss, md, is a practicing ob/gyn and former assistant clinical professor at the ucla school of medicine. Learn more in this article view all in this article unsafe medications other therapies to avoid safety considerations damircudic / getty images taking medications to treat new or existing health conditions during pregnancy is common—about 90% of pregnant people take over-the-counter (otc) medications, and 70% take prescription medications. Many medicines are safe during pregnancy, but some can pose serious risks for you or the fetus, such as pregnancy loss, preterm birth, and congenital disorders (previously known as birth defects). Knowing which medications to avoid while pregnant is essential for protecting your and your babys health and well-being. Talk to a healthcare provider before taking any medications, including prescription and otc. They can discuss the safest and most effective medication options for managing your health conditions or concerns during pregnancy. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids) nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids)—such as advil (ibuprofen), aleve (naproxen), and ecotrin (aspirin)—help reduce pain, inflammation, and fever. Nsaids can cause serious kidney problems in a fetus, especially after 20 weeks (5 months) gestation. After 20 weeks, the fetuss kidneys produce most of the protective amniotic fluid surrounding the fetus, which is essential for developing the lungs, muscles, and digestive system. While nsaid use is most dangerous after 20 weeks of pregnancy, you may want to avoid the drugs throughout your entire pregnancy. Some evidence suggests nsaids increase the risk of miscarriage and birth defects when taken in early pregnancy. Statins statins are prescription medications that lower blood cholesterol levels in people with high cholesterol. They work by reducing cholesterol production in the liver and helping the liver remove low-density lipoprotein (ldl)—bad cholesterol—from the blood. In 2021, the u.S. Food and drug administration (fda) removed the strongest warning against statin use during pregnancy after acknowledging research evidence that shows statins do not cause birth defects. However, statins are associated with other risks during pregnancy, including a higher risk of low birth weight and preterm birth. Retinoids retinoids, such as zenatane (isotretinoin), are prescription acne medications associated with a high risk of severe birth defects. These medications affect how cells grow and divide, disrupting the normal development of an embryo or fetus. Retinoid use during pregnancy is associated with malformations (e.G., Cleft lip or palate; abnormal head shape), heart defects, intellectual disabilities, and developmental delays. Although oral retinoids are particularly dangerous for a fetus, there is not enough research to determine whether topical retinoids (creams and lotions) are safe. Some experts recommend avoiding them entirely during pregnancy. Warfarin (blood thinner) blood thinners, or anticoagulants, are prescription medications that help prevent blood clots. Coumadin (warfarin) is a blood thinner that passes through the placenta to the fetus and increases the risk of miscarriage, stillbirth, and congenital disorders. Warfarin use in the first trimester is associated with fetal warfarin syndrome (fws), which causes skeletal problems such as shortened limbs, skull and facial differences, intellectual disability, and heart defects. In the second and third trimesters, warfarin use increases the risk of hemorrhage (excessive bleeding) and stillbirth. Fortunately, there are blood thinners that are safe to take during pregnancy, such as heparin, that do not pose health risks to a developing fetus. Anti-seizure medications anti-seizure medications (acms) help reduce the frequency of seizures in people with seizure disorders, such as epilepsy. Some acms, particularly valproic (valproic acid), increase the risk of congenital disorders. Valproic acid exposure in the first trimester is associated with a high risk of babies born with neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, cleft lip, and heart defects. Exposure in the first trimester is also associated with an increased risk of intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, facial differences, and limb defects. The decision of whether or not to take acms during pregnancy involves weighing the risks of uncontrolled seizures for both the pregnant parent and fetus against the potential birth risks. Your healthcare provider can advise you based on your specific health needs. Tetracycline antibiotics tetracyclines, such as monodox (doxycycline), are antibiotics that treat many bacterial infections, including respiratory tract infections and skin, eye, intestinal, and urinary tract infections. During pregnancy, these medications can affect bone growth and cause permanent staining of a babys teeth. While less common, tetracycline may slow bone growth in the developing fetus. However, this effect appears to be reversible once the pregnant parent stops taking the medication. High-dose tetracyclines also pose a health risk for pregnant people, increasing the risk of acute fatty liver in pregnancy (aflp), a rare but possibly life-threatening disorder. Healthcare providers can prescribe safer antibiotics to treat bacterial infections during pregnancy. Benzodiazepines benzodiazepines (like valium) are sedative medications that treat anxiety and insomnia. Some studies suggest a possible link between first-trimester exposure to benzodiazepines and an increased risk of heart problems. The risk may be dose-dependent, meaning a higher dose could lead to a greater risk. Long-term use of benzodiazepines throughout pregnancy may affect the developing fetuss central nervous system and increase the risk of preterm birth and low birth weight. Newborns exposed to benzodiazepines may experience respiratory distress, low muscle tone, and poor feeding and require admission to the neonatal intensive care unit (nicu). Decongestants decongestant medications containing sudafed (pseudoephedrine) can help relieve nasal congestion from allergic rhinitis (hay fever). Some evidence suggests there is a link between pseudoephedrine use in the first trimester and an increased risk of congenital disorders, including gastroschisis (an opening in the abdominal wall), small intestinal atresia (underdeveloped small intestine), and hemifacial microsomia (smaller than usual facial features). Pseudoephedrine acts as a vasoconstrictor, meaning it narrows blood vessels. This may reduce blood flow to the uterus and fetus, especially during the first trimester when organ formation occurs. Ace inhibitors angiotensin-converting enzyme (ace) inhibitors, such as lotensin (benazepril) and zestril (lisinopril), are prescription medications that treat hypertension (high blood pressure), heart disease, and kidney problems. These medications pose potentially serious risks for a fetus, particularly in the second and third trimesters. Ace inhibitors can cause low levels of amniotic fluid in the womb, increasing the risk of congenital disorders, including lung and kidney problems, skull deformities, and, in severe cases, fetal death. Methotrexate trexall (methotrexate) is a medication that blocks the growth of cells and decreases immune system activity to treat autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and certain types of cancer. Methotrexate poses serious risks during pregnancy. Exposure in the first trimester is associated with congenital anomalies such as craniofacial (face and skull), finger and toe, and spinal defects. Exposure to methotrexate in the first trimester also increases the risk of lung, heart, and kidney problems. Studies suggest that low-dose methotrexate may increase the risk of miscarriage, preterm birth, or intrauterine growth restriction (iugr) that may stunt growth through infancy and childhood. Cannabis cannabis (marijuana) is a plant that some people use to treat anxiety, insomnia, nausea, and pain. Cannabis contains tetrahydrocannabinol (thc), a psychoactive compound that crosses the placenta and affects fetal development. Smoking, vaping, or ingesting cannabis edibles during pregnancy can lead to adverse outcomes such as low birth weight, preterm birth, and developmental delays. Some studies suggest the effects may continue throughout childhood—some children whose gestational parents used cannabis while pregnant have behavioral and learning problems. Lithium lithium, a mood-stabilizing prescription medication for treating bipolar disorder, poses potential risks during pregnancy. First-trimester lithium exposure increases the risk of heart defects in developing fetuses, such as ebstein anomaly, which affects the positioning and function of a heart valve. Some studies suggest lithium use during pregnancy may increase the risk of preterm birth and low birth weight, though the risk appears to be small. However, lithium use is associated with neonatal complications, such as respiratory distress, poor feeding, and low muscle tone, requiring longer hospital stays after birth. Many people with bipolar disorder who take lithium during pregnancy deliver healthy babies. However, your healthcare provider may recommend lowering your lithium dose to prevent adverse outcomes. Talk to your provider before stopping or reducing your medication. Opioids opioids, such as buprenorphine, codeine, and oxycodone, are powerful pain medications that help manage moderate to severe pain. Opioid use during pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of miscarriage, stillbirth, and congenital disorders, including heart defects, neural tube defects (e.G., Spina bifida), and eye problems like glaucoma and blindness. Opioid exposure can lead to neonatal abstinence syndrome (nas) when a baby goes through withdrawal from the drug after birth. Babies with nas may cry excessively, have body shakes or seizures, breathing problems, diarrhea, fever, or have trouble eating and gaining weight. Other therapies to avoid while many natural remedies and supplements are generally safe, some can pose significant risks during pregnancy. Herbs herbs to avoid during pregnancy include: black and blue cohosh: these herbs can cause uterine contractions and induce preterm labor. High doses of blue cohosh herb are associated with stroke, heart attack, and respiratory distress in infants.Dong quai: this increases the risk of miscarriage or preterm birth due to its blood-thinning properties and ability to stimulate uterine contractions.Goldenseal: this contains a chemical called berberine, which can cross through the placenta and may cause brain damage called kernicterus in infants exposed to goldenseal during pregnancy. Essential oils essential oils are popular for aromatherapy and topical use, but some can be unsafe during pregnancy. Essential oils to avoid include: anisesagefennelpennyroyalwintergreenmyrrhoreganoyarrowwormwoodmugwort high doses of vitamins prenatal vitamins are important for a healthy pregnancy, but excessive intake of certain vitamins may be unsafe during pregnancy, especially in high doses. For example, excessive intake of vitamin a during pregnancy increases the risk of birth defects and miscarriage. Also, high doses of vitamin e during pregnancy are associated with an increased risk of intrauterine growth restriction, premature rupture of membranes (water breaking early), placental abruption, preterm birth, and stillbirth. How to know if a medication is safe to take navigating medications and their safety during pregnancy can be confusing. In the united states, prescription and over-the-counter (otc) medications have information on the packaging or medication insert regarding the medicines safety during pregnancy. This information includes: risk summary: a summary of research findings about the potential risks of exposure to the medication during pregnancy, including known birth defects and the risk of miscarriageclinical considerations: additional information on the risk-to-benefit ratio and dose adjustments during pregnancydata: a brief summary of the evidence supporting the information included in the risk summary section always consult your healthcare provider before taking any medications, including otc drugs and supplements, while pregnant. Your provider will consider your medical history, the medications purpose, and the stage of your pregnancy to determine if a medication is safe. A quick review pregnancy requires extra attention and consideration before taking medications and supplements. In the first trimester, certain medications can cause congenital disorders or lead to miscarriage. Other medications may be harmful in the second and third trimesters, increasing the risk of preterm birth, low birth weight, or developmental delays in infants and children. When it comes to your pregnancy and the health of your developing baby, prioritize erring on the side of caution and avoid taking any medications without your healthcare providers approval.
