  • Comments Off on What Are the Social and Ethical Issues Related to Surrogate Motherhood?

Whether or not Surrogate motherhood is ethical and ought to be supported is actually a tricky and hot subject in the current society.

It is one particular issue that can actually draw a line between the modern and the conservative. The issue has been a center of debate in many of the law making institutions in the world. America has been a place for rights, and has actually not been left behind in embracing the rights of women to choose not to give birth and contract the responsibility to others at a fee.

There are many reasons that may actually be given to justify the surrogacy contract. In many societies, there is actually that respect that is given to the process of procreation. At least in most of the religious institutions like Islam, Christianity, Hindu Sikhism Judaism and many others, there is a sanction that is actually given in the holy books. That actually means that there is a justification that marriage as a union should bring forth human beings. There is therefore a good justification that it may be a right of a family to have kids. When that reason is given, a woman who is not fertile can justify it if she turns to a surrogacy contract to have a child of her husband instead of adopting one. There may be other justifications which may include a possibility where a woman giving birth may actually result to risking her life due to some medical complications.

The debate for the surrogacy contract is rather healthy at this time in most societies. Considering the societies where there are very conservative religion laws or strict traditional practices, the mention of surrogacy may not even be entertained. In such societies, it is purely against the faith, beliefs and the traditions.

The child rights activists in both developed and underdeveloped countries will also question the surrogacy arrangement. The argument is that it may purely deny a child many of its rights. Depending on the contract that is made between the contracting couple and mother, there may be or not a role that the surrogate mother may play after birth. Where laws to protect the interests of the child are silent, the child may be denied some of the basic things that he or she may require. Good time for breastfeeding may actually be denied. A child may require still that emotional attachment to the mum. This may also go in the same way for the mother. At times the surrogate mother develops an attachment to the baby and often has nothing to do about it.

There are those morality crusaders who also question the role of money in this. It is said that it is just like making money the center stage of life. They actually claim that the contract is just tantamount to giving money a higher standing in a serious matter off life. They question the integrity of women who lend their bodies for cash.

The main opponents of the surrogacy law are religious bodies. They claim that it is really going to kill the sacred institutions of the family.

  • Comments Off on Maternity Sleepwear Will Feel Better Than A Regular Pair Of Non-Pregnancy Pajamas

Getting a good night’s rest is not always the easiest thing, especially when you are pregnant. Suddenly your pre-pregnancy pajamas and nightgowns no longer fit like they used to with restricting waistbands and tops that are tight in the bust and tummy. Soon even your husband’s undershirts cannot cover your belly and hardly look sexy on your changing shape! But before you dive into a sleep deprived depression, refresh your wardrobe with some comfortable and flattering maternity sleepwear picks that can ease your ride through pregnancy and motherhood!

MJs maternity and nursing pajamas are cute, hip, comfortable and flattering. These maternity pajamas are great for early pregnancy and perfect for after the baby with easy nursing access. You can wear these pajamas any season. The pajama pants are full length and fit under the belly. The short sleeve cross over style nursing top is super stretchy and has some bust support.

Pajannaman nursing and maternity pajamas are very similar to the MJ but have a cropped pant.

Smart Choices Single Use Nursing Pads- 48 Count Review

These nursing pads are by far my favorites and I’ve tried them all – from the unbelievably awful Johnson & Johnson (unusable) to the great Lansinoh and Medela nursing pads (work very nicely). These have a fabric feel to them which I found most comfortable and natural. They absorb very well, are unnoticeable under even skin-tight clothing and the only nitpick I would have is that if you readjust them or remove/reinsert them, the adhesive will not work very well anymore and they will shift on you. But most of the time, I will only remove them when I’m exchanging for a new pair, so no trouble for me. I nursed one daughter to 1 year and 5 months and am currently nursing my second daughter 10 months and counting (I nurse exclusively, so get lots of practice :)).
