Pregnancy

This isn’t a case of drink driving – surely this is something much worse?

A pregnant woman who fled police after being stopped at a checkpoint on her way home for a night out drinking was “grossly intoxicated”, police say.

The 24-year-old woman, who was also a disqualified driver, failed to stop at the checkpoint in central Nelson, resulting in a short pursuit at about 3.20am, Sergeant David Lauer said.

The woman fled through a 50kmh residential area near Nelson Hospital at speeds of 70kmh for about a kilometre, before being pulled over by police.

She produced a reading of 938 micrograms of alcohol per litre of breath – almost four times the new blood alcohol limit.

The woman was three months pregnant and “grossly intoxicated”, Lauer said.¬† Read more »

Woman needs inducing. Husband climbs on top to get the process started

Wait for the interesting bit, where it mentions a “Do not disturb” sign.

A heavily pregnant woman and her partner were caught having sex in a hospital bed while waiting to have their baby induced.

The mother and father were discovered by a cleaner who heard moaning coming from a private room on the maternity ward.

The worker told hospital bosses what she had found but was informed there are no rules against having sex on the ward at St Michael’s Hospital, in Bristol.

The hospital’s policy is for frisky couples to put a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on the door

There you go.   Apparently having sex in the hospital, whether for medical reasons or not, is accommodated by having a sign that can go on the door.  Do not disturb Рoccupiers are at it.

A hospital source said: ‘Other patients on the unit heard the commotion and were upset. The cleaner was utterly shocked.

‘She was amazed to be told it was OK. The hospital’s advice appears to be just to put a sign up – amazing.’

A hospital spokeswoman said: ‘Staff work hard to ensure privacy and dignity is maintained for all patients. Read more »

Pregnant West Coast mums need bribes to stop smoking

Man was it hard not to put “feral” in that headline. ¬†Check this out

The West Coast District Health Board has offered to pay up to $350 in petrol and fuel vouchers to smoking pregnant women in a bid to get them to quit the habit.

To check they do not cheat, they will have to blow into a carbon monoxide detector once a week.

The programme has been trialled by Counties Manakau DHB with a quit rate of 65 per cent for those who stay the course. Regular quit programmes normally achieve 30 to 40 per cent success.

The West Coast DHB is not sure yet how many women will participate, so the exact cost is unclear, but the organisers point out it costs $3000 a night to look after a premature baby, and smokers are more likely to go into labour early.

After one week smokefree, the reward is a $50 voucher, with $25 rewards up to week 12. Mothers still smokefree two weeks after the baby’s arrival — a time when some women relapse — will earn a $50 pharmacy voucher. Read more »

Face of the day

A baby smiles inside the womb.

A baby smiles inside the womb.

The Greens have brought Abortion back into the light and are making it an election issue. I feel that it is only fair to make the face of the day the face of those that the Green’s feel should be more easily disposed of. If you have been hiding under a rock the past few days you may not be aware of a law change that they are proposing that will take away the few weak restrictions that we have left that stand in the way of a Mother having Abortion on demand for any reason whatsoever.

I could try and shock by showing you horrific, graphic photos of aborted children. Many people are not aware of how they are killed or how late term abortions are performed. If you want to face the nasty reality do a Google search. I warn you now that only the seriously deluded will be able to look at those photos and maintain that they are a) Not babies b) Part of a woman’s body.

Greens fighting battles past, this time it is abortion

embryo

For some reason the Greens have decided that abortion should be a defining issue of this campaign.

They have decided to have as a policy a change to abortion law to streamline the killing of children faster.

The Greens have ratified a policy on abortion, which would get rid of a process a certified consultant says is “perfectly workable”.

Abortion is a crime under the Crimes Act, and is legal only if two consultants agree that the pregnancy would seriously harm the woman’s physical or mental health, or that there is a substantial risk the child would be born seriously disabled.

The Greens want abortion removed from the crime statutes, saying it would reduce stigma and judgment surrounding the procedure. This would mean a woman seeking one would not need external approval.

“The Green Party trusts women to make decisions that are best for them and their whanau/family,” women’s spokeswoman Jan Logie said.

That’s nice…they make a decision that another kid isn’t wanted, so reef it out…never to be part of a family so someone can decide what is best for them. ¬† Read more »

Update on Josie Cunningham – the NHS free boob job lady

You remember Josie don’t you? ¬†She was the one that got the government to pay for her boob job, then supposedly felt guilty about taking tax payers’ money, so she decided to go into prostitution to earn enough money to pay for the boob job herself.

Here’s her photo, just to jog your memory, post-op.

If you are keen on gay babies then smoke while pregnant

Apparently smoking fags while pregnant increases the likelihood that your kid will turn out gay.

Not sure I believe this but it is interesting nonetheless.

A neuroscientist has claimed a woman’s lifestyle during pregnancy is directly linked to the development of their children, influencing whether they may be gay and having an impact on their IQ.

Women who smoke or lead a stressful life during their pregnancy can influence their child‚Äôs sexuality and IQ, a neuroscientist has claimed.¬† Read more »

Affair ends marriage

An older man, in a working relationship, with a younger woman, taking advantage of her vulnerability.

A Bay of Plenty lawyer allegedly acted for a vulnerable teenage client the day after he had sex with her, a tribunal has been told.

Craig Horsley, 55, appeared before the Lawyers and Conveyancers Disciplinary Tribunal in Auckland yesterday to face allegations of “disgraceful and dishonourable” conduct and misleading the law standards committee.

Mr Horsley admitted lying to the committee on numerous occasions, first denying the relationship with the young woman and then lying about when their relationship began. He said he did not want his wife to suspect the baby the teenager was pregnant with was his.

Dressed in a black suit and purple tie, Mr Horsley put his head in his hands and wept after confirming the affair had ended his marriage.

People are losing their jobs, destroying their marriages and their family. ¬† Read more »

Oh the outrage, pregnant mother lifting weights

Some people find the most unimportant things to express outrage over. Like this woman, a mother of two, weightlifting two weeks before her due date.

Lea-Ann Ellison lifting weights while heavily pregnant.

Lea-Ann Ellison lifting weights while heavily pregnant.

It’s the picture that has people thinking: should a heavily pregnant woman really be doing that?

Fitness fanatic and female bodybuilder Lea-Ann Ellison has caused a neo-natal storm after she posted photos of herself lifting heavy weights¬†on her gym’s Facebook page.

Ellison, who is eight-and-a-half months pregnant and due to give birth in two weeks, believes her dedication to weight lifting poses no risk to her unborn baby.

Pregnancy, she says, is not an illness, but “a time to relish in your body’s capabilities to kick ass”.

Not everyone agrees with the 35-year-old Californian.

Here’s a sample of the outrage her picture has provoked:

“Actually not a good thing to do at 8 months. The added intrabdominal pressure isn’t safe and its not good to promote this. Weights are fine but this is just plain silly.”¬† Read more »
