Both mother and baby were doing well “and nothing was expected to go wrong”.Ms Delahunt (34) from Borrisoleigh Co Tipperary, wept as she recounted the events leading up to the stillborn birth of her daughter Mary Kate Kelly at the Maternity Hospital in Limerick, on May 28 2013.Before she started her evidence, Ms Delahunt asked if she could pass around a photo of Mary Kate “so everyone knows why we are here”.Ms Delahunt was a patient with consultant gynacologist Dr Mark Skehan in Limerick but on May 21, 2013, she was working in Portlaoise when she sought help regarding her concerns over her baby’s reduction in activity in the womb.She learned of four previous infant deaths at the same hospital in Portlaoise after watching a Prime Time investigation programme.Ms Delahunt told the inquest how she and her partner Oliver Kelly had been trying for many years to start a family and were overjoyed when they finally conceived with the help of fertility treatment.The pregnancy continued as normal until 34 weeks, when Ms Delahunt became concerned about lack of foetal movement. Dr Skehan said that he had seen Ms Delahunt one month earlier and all was well and “nothing was expected to go wrong”.On May 21, 2013, she went to the Maternity Assessment Unit (MAU) in Portlaoise hospital, five minutes from the school where she works as a secondary teacher as she was worried about her baby.She was monitored on CTG, a cardio monitor which gives a trace or graph of the baby’s foetal movements and an ultrasound was carried out.Registered midwife Sally Hanford told the inquest how she aired her concerns to the on-call Registrar Dr Chuck Ugezu about three unprovoked decelerations in the baby’s heart rate as picked up in Ms Delahunt’s CTG trace.Dr Ugezu said it was unnecessary to repeat the trace which he said was normal for this period of pregnancy and he performed an ultrasound scan which he said was fine.Ms Hanford said she told Dr Ugezu that he could not stand over the trace and they needed to contact consultant obstetrician Dr Miriam Doyle who was on duty in the maternity ward to review the trace.Ms Delahunt was subsequently discharged and told to keep a check of foetal movements overnight, ahead of her scheduled anti natal appointment in Limerick, the following morning.When she went for the appointment, she was told by midwives in Limerick that they could find not find a heartbeat on the scan, and that’s when she knew her baby girl was gone.“I just wanted them to deliver the baby straight away. I didn’t want to be carrying around a baby bump with a dead baby inside and people thinking I was going to have a healthy baby.”She had to wait six more days before she finally gave birth to baby Mary Kate.Dr Chuck Ugezu, a former registrar at The Midland Regional Hospital in Portlaoise, apologised for the “understandable upset caused”. He also acknowledged he should have insisted she be admitted on the day she presented at Portlaoise, for further observations and for steroid injections and further CTG traces.Consultant Obstetrician Dr Miriam Doyle said she had no recollection of Ms Delahunt on May 21, 2013 or speaking to midwife Hanford about her case. She said that Ms Delahunt should have been admitted.She also agreed that if she had been kept in hospital, the baby would have born been alive, although it was uncertain how healthy.During the second day of evidence, Dr Skehan said he agreed that Amy Delahunt should have been immediately admitted to Portlaoise hospital.Many of the staff in Limerick were in tears over the death of little Mary Kate and all they could do was “help the mother and try and get through the situation. It is terribly sad and quite difficult in the hospital when there is such an occurrence”.Pathologist, Dr Peter Kelehan, said the cause of death was uncertain but delayed maturation of the placenta, a lateral insertion and hyper coiling of the coil could have contributed.The jury returned a verdict medical misadventure and a number of recommendations were made including that HSE promote lifelong learning amongst medical staff; maternity medical staff should receive adequate and ongoing CTG trace training; the HSE national policy on open disclosure should be implemented in full; there should be clear written instructions on the escalation of care; that patients with non-reassuring CTG traces or with concerns over foetal movements should not be discharged from hospital unless done so by a consultant; expectant mothers discharged from hospital should be given clear written instructions on monitoring foetal movement and that the HSE should publish and be obliged to adhere to adequate staffing levels in all hospitals.Speaking afterwards, the parents of Mary Kate Kelly had these comments.

Earlier this week, we shared a playlist with you that featured the debut performance of every single Grateful Dead song, spanning the bands prolific 30 year career. As popular as their originals were, the Grateful Dead almost always added a few covers into their setlists over the years. Some would get played more than others, including the traditional “I Know You Rider,” the Buddy Holly classic “Not Fade Away,” and Johnny Cash’s “Big River,” but almost all of them felt right at home within the confines of a Dead show.Thanks to the mastermind Osty Gale, we now have a definitive playlist that not only catalogs each cover, but shares their debut performances as well. There are some interesting entries on the list, including a number of Beatles songs, a Miles Davis song, some Rolling Stones, and a lot of traditional numbers in the folk/blues genres.The full playlist can be streamed below, with 183 different tracks culled from 30 years of Grateful Dead shows via Eyesoftheworld94. The full listing, with showdates and original artists, is listed at the bottom. Enjoy!It’s worth noting that this playlist doesn’t include songs that were debuted with guest musicians… perhaps those will be in the next playlist?1966: I’m a King Bee [orig.

The Guardian 13 May 2019Family First Comment: A thought-provoking article about the vaccination and parental consent issue – written by a public health professor at a major Australian university…“All the parents in our research made a conscious and (for them) logical choice not to vaccinate, questioned the science underpinning vaccinations and undertook a number of health-promoting practices for the wellbeing of their children. Parents engaged in an ongoing search for information about how best to parent their children, which for many led to questioning of traditional scientific knowledge. Parents practised health-promoting activities which they saw as boosting the natural immunity of their children and protecting them from illness (reducing or negating the perceived need for vaccinations), including breastfeeding, eating organic and/or homegrown food, cooking from scratch to reduce preservative consumption and reducing exposure to toxins. Parents actively sought to take agency and responsibility back from the state and replace what they regarded as the negative consequences of vaccinating their children with positive consequences of health-promoting parenting. This lens reframes the act of not vaccinating from being deficit-based (parents doing something wrong) to being assets-based (parents having a particular logic and perceiving their parenting as health promoting).”Rather than simply blaming parents we should try to understand them.It’s often quite easy, but not necessarily useful or fair, to fall into the trap of blaming individuals for some of their choices in life. We continue to witness the unfair attribution of blame and stigma, often funnelled through particular types of media, on individual behaviours deemed “bad”. In the media and some political discourse, negative stereotypes tend to be attached to people undertaking a variety of “bad” behaviours, such as eating too much junk food, drinking too much alcohol, not practicing safe sex or not doing enough exercise. Parents who reject vaccinations for their children are also negatively stereotyped and constructed as bad parents and bad citizens, which simply leads to further polarisation and distrust.Evidence shows that it is very difficult to change behaviour among parents who actively refuse vaccination. Providing the correct information on vaccines improves knowledge but does not improve intent to vaccinate, indicating that simply correcting myths about vaccines in information campaigns or public health interventions may not be effective in changing vaccination behaviours.The assumption underpinning negative stereotyping is that bad behaviours are simply individual choices, which can be changed via health education and government policy. In other words, if people are educated that their behaviours are health damaging, and they choose to ignore the advice, they are seen as culpable for the outcomes of their behaviour.In my field of public health, we actively aim not simply to blame people for their behaviours, but rather to understand the social, cultural, economic and cultural reasons that underpin their behaviours in the first place. This approach has been called “the causes of the causes”. We can then advocate for changes to the underlying factors which create the reasons for the behaviours, which moves the focus away from the individual and on to the social and political determinants of behaviour.Rather than simply blaming vaccine-rejecting parents and carrying on the “anti” and “pro” vaccination stalemate, I am part of a research team trying to understand the reasons why some parents decide not to vaccinate their children, focusing on their trust or distrust in childhood vaccinations.The times when we were simply, even blindly, expected to trust people because they were in positions of power has gone. This is not to say that people in power should not be trusted, but simply that people are expected to question such authority, access other sources of information and perform the role of the “informed citizen”. Across many countries and cultures, this unquestioning of power has been somewhat eroded, and in some cases broken. Nevertheless, most of social life could not happen without trust – as humans, we cannot personally perform every function ourselves, and therefore we need other humans to perform those functions for us. There are all sorts of uncertainties and contingencies built into the decision to trust (or not), but trust is ultimately based on cooperation – if we trust, we believe that the other person will do their best for us, and we will cooperate in a social relationship on that basis. Trust is a judgment, not a decision based on facts. We gather as much information as we need and then use that as our guide, but it is not fail-safe. Neither is it based on full information, mainly because we are trusting something which has not happened yet.Trust is an emotion which is based to an expectation about the future – if you trust a doctor to diagnose an illness or provide childhood vaccinations, you expect that they will be able to do this properly. Our research found that while parents tended to trust complementary and alternative practitioners, they had a distrust in doctors (in general), pharmaceutical companies (en masse) and even science as an institution. The central question for public health around ethical and effective communication with non-vaccinating parents is: if the messenger is distrusted, how do we get the message in an appropriate manner and what message will be accepted?All the parents in our research made a conscious and (for them) logical choice not to vaccinate, questioned the science underpinning vaccinations and undertook a number of health-promoting practices for the wellbeing of their children. Parents engaged in an ongoing search for information about how best to parent their children, which for many led to questioning of traditional scientific knowledge. Parents practised health-promoting activities which they saw as boosting the natural immunity of their children and protecting them from illness (reducing or negating the perceived need for vaccinations), including breastfeeding, eating organic and/or homegrown food, cooking from scratch to reduce preservative consumption and reducing exposure to toxins. Parents actively sought to take agency and responsibility back from the state and replace what they regarded as the negative consequences of vaccinating their children with positive consequences of health-promoting parenting.This lens reframes the act of not vaccinating from being deficit-based (parents doing something wrong) to being assets-based (parents having a particular logic and perceiving their parenting as health promoting).As a public health academic, I do not wish to promote the decisions of parents not to vaccinate their children, since I fully believe in population-level vaccination programs. However, I am not simply trying to change what I see as the wrong decision – I seek to understand the logic and moral position of parents so that two-way communication can occur in a socially, culturally and ethically appropriate way.• Paul Ward is professor and head of public health at the College of Medicine and Public Health, Flinders Universityhttps://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/may/13/labelling-anti-vaxxers-as-bad-parents-doesnt-help-it-just-leads-to-more-distrust-in-scienceKeep up with family issues in NZ.

CICERO — After Mike Washington stiff-armed the final Fayetteville-Manlius defender, he became the running back that head coach Dave Kline needed. The junior’s feet kicked through turf as he sprinted into the end zone untouched, a 30-yard score in the second quarter that put Cicero-North Syracuse up 15-0. The offense exchanged high-fives and chest bumps, but they weren’t done celebrating.A dozen Northstars walked over to the sideline and perched around a black cart with wheels, a common occurrence for C-NS during its games. They rewatched the previous scoring drive on a small TV screen in the center of the cart, and once Washington’s touchdown run flashed across the screen, cheers resounded again. Friday night marked the breakout game for Washington in his second game as the Northstars’ full-time back. His three touchdowns — including two on 50 and 60-yard runs — kick-started an overall performance that, aside from a fumble on the first possession and one strong scoring drive by F-M to close out the first half, C-NS dominated. Two weeks ago, Washington was a wide receiver, not a tailback. But in C-NS’ 29-8 win over F-M, he showed signs of being a backfield cornerstone. “This game put C-NS back on the map,” Washington said.Before the victory, however, C-NS was headed in the opposite direction of previous seasons. The Northstars had lost only two games in the last four seasons combined, but lost two of their first three games this year. Jeremiah Willis and Jaiquawn McGriff, the two-headed backfield that led C-NS to the state semifinals less than a year ago, had both graduated. Entering the season, tailback depth was thin.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWashington is listed on the team’s roster as a wide receiver and cornerback, but started playing running back last week. Kline said the move came after a 10-0 loss to Liverpool, a game when the C-NS running game was non-existent. He had his players do a full-equipment practice the Monday after that loss, something that rarely happens. It was then when he found his newest tailback. Midway through the third quarter against the Hornets, Washington again gave the Northstars points. After calling a timeout on fourth down, Kline decided to go for it — a decision that paid off as Washington took the handoff and sprinted down the left sideline for his second touchdown of the night. “The coaches put me in that position, they wanted to get me the ball,” Washington said.And though Washington was responsible for three of the four touchdowns, the offensive line’s consistency allowed Washington to find holes and break free — he credited his six runs for 20 or more yards to his blockers up front.Their protection also allowed quarterback JJ Razmovski to have a quiet but effective night commanding the C-NS offense. He threw a 20-yard touchdown early in the second quarter to give the Northstars a 9-0 lead, a slant route on the left side, and converted on other short passes when needed. Kline said after the game that his junior quarterback, the replacement to longtime starter Connor Hayes, was more relaxed than previous weeks. “JJ started to feel confident, he was pressing things a little bit,” Kline said. “(He) finally relaxed and started going with the flow of the O.”With F-M starting quarterback Zak Conley out with a knee injury from last week, the Hornets were without a single quarterback on their roster. Alex Dauksza, listed as a safety and defensive back, stepped in. Though the majority of his Dauksza’s role was handing the ball off in F-M’s running-based offense, he manufactured a scoring drive at the end of the first half. A 30-yard dime down the right sideline found a streaking Jordan Leuze on 4th-and-15, and Leuze stuck his left hand out and raced into the end zone. A two-point conversion off a play-action fade followed and cut the deficit to seven points before the half. But CNS’ defense did well to hold Dauksza to just that. Even with the game out of reach in the fourth quarter, the Northstars continued to make tackles for losses and apply constant pressure. “That’s a hard offense to adjust to,” Kline said. “The guys just came out and understood the game plan.”After two more touchdowns followed Washington’s run and after players from both sides branched out to their respective end zones after shaking hands, a few C-NS coaches pulled out a black bag for the TV and began to disassemble. They zipped up the bag, turned it vertically to fit in the cart and pushed it off the field toward the locker room. Next week against West Genesee, C-NS’ players will gather around it once again. They’ll continue to reflect on their best and worst plays from the previous drive. Continue to sit down with assistant coaches to figure out what went wrong. And, if Kline’s vision flourishes, continue to re-watch Washington touchdowns.
