Early development Early development

Description

This free course, Early development, looks at the human being in the context of an individual life cycle, examining some of the processes that contribute to the formation of a new person. After a brief discussion of historical ideas about human conception, and about contraception to the present day, we look at the cells involved in the conception and development of a new individual. Gamete production (that is, production of mature cells able to unite with another in sexual reproduction) in both men and women is introduced and the role gametes in fertility and, when things go wrong, infertility is explained. We then discuss the early development of a new individual, along with some thoughts on women's experience of pregnancy. First published on Thu, 24 Mar 2016 as Early development.

Challenging the biomedical model of childbirth

Description

Health means different things to different people and this is reflected in the experiences of pregnancy and childbirth in this free course Challenging the biomedical model of childbirth. People's views on health and disease are often influenced by official discourse which today just as in times past has projected authoritative messages about what should be considered important. Such official accounts contain judgements about health emphasising some ideas and practices while marginalising others. In childbirth there have been many challenges to these official ways of seeing and doing and this course focuses on some of them.
