Viewer discretion: Caesarean section has become the most common operation in American hospitals, reaching 32 percent in 2007. Therefore, a discussion of pros and cons of cesarian birth should be accompanied by a visual. These 20" x 26" female examination-room anatomy posters illustrate internal human anatomy of mammary glands and infant within the mother from conception. For obstetrics and gynecology professionals and their patients, Pregnancy and Birth shows vaginal canal, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovum, fertilization, implanted blastocyst, trimester and fetal development with embryo ultrasound and amniocentesis. Genetic screening and hormonal changes during pregnancy are discussed. To assist in a safe pregnancy and childbirth, it presents the three stages of labor. Physicians should display both English and Spanish versions of this important poster in their offices. Intended for medical professionals and mature audiences. Consider displaying this poster during August Breastfeeding Awareness Month.
