Help her weigh the pros and cons as you see them. Part II:

For example, why do pregnant women need extra calcium, iron, and folic acid? 2. In cases of severe morning sickness, are prescription medicines advised?

When is an amniocentesis warranted and how is it analyzed? 5.

Distinguish between gestational diabetes and Type 2 diabetes in terms of cause, management, and consequences/outcomes.

Diagram the anatomy of the urinary tract from kidney to urethra. 3. What are the common causes of premature births? What sort of medical care in the hospital immediately post birth is necessary for a premature baby, one born much earlier than Andrea? 4. Research the incidence rates of the more common birth defects. How common are ureteroceles? What is the long-term outcome for surgical treatment to repair a ureterocele? 5. Yvonne is faced with making a decision on behalf of her infant that would involve surgical treatment. There are inherent risks with surgery, regardless of age.
