A Special Delivery with Shoulder Dystocia

You want your baby entering the world in pristine condition, but Shoulder Dystocia can cause all sorts of issue for the child and the mother. SD occurs during labor when the baby's shoulders get stuck as they pass through the birth canal. This can be extremely dangerous because the baby can sustain injuries to their arms or shoulders, the baby's brain could be deprived of oxygen...resulting in brain damage, and the mother's tissues (such as cervix, uterus, or vagina) could tear, causing excessive bleeding.

Don't Have a Hernia, Man

Have you ever had part of your intestines or other tissues bulge through your abdominal wall? Just reading that sentence feels painful. Luckily if this happens, you are likely diagnosed with a hernia, and a doctor fixes it with simple surgery. In most cases, they install surgical mesh that provides support for the weakened tissue. This mesh can be made of animal tissue, which degrades over time while your body naturally heals itself, or synthetic material that acts as a permanent reinforcement to keep the hernia from reappearing. Unfortunately the mesh can be faulty in some cases and result in further pain, infection, recurrence, obstruction (intestinal blockage), or perforation (a hole in nearby tissue or organs).
