Challenging the biomedical model of childbirth 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. First published on Mon, 29 Feb 2016 as Challenging the biomedical model of childbirth. To find out more visit The Open University's Openlearn website.

Substances and baby weight

Description

A simple interactive graph to illustrate the idea of confounding and why scientists must check for it before announcing a result. The example uses real data from Children of the 90s (http://childrenofthe90s.ac.uk), a large longitudinal study which is also known as the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children. The graph initially shows a negative relationship between mothers' coffee consumption and baby weight, and invites the reader to interpret this relationship. The format is an interactive web page with embedded scripts and style sheets. It requires a modern web browser but no other software. The software libraries are included in the package so that the graph can be used without needing to be online.

Early development

Description

This unit 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.
