Miami Dade College Biology Fertility Issues Prenatal Discussion


Prenatal Discussion (Discussion 2)

Option 1:  As you have read in your textbook, infertility is on the rise for a  number of reasons. Please share your own personal experiences with the  process of “getting pregnant” (you are not required to share any  information that makes you uncomfortable, only what you are willing to  disclose).

If  you have not had any personal experiences with the process of  conception, then ask your mothers, sisters, or any of your friends who  have.

Option 2: Females:  Describe your own experiences with the birth process, if applicable. If  you haven’t had any personal experience(s) with the birth process, ask  your mothers, sisters, or friends what their experiences were like and  share those. Males:  Describe your own experiences as fathers, if applicable. What was the  birth process like for you? If you have no experience, you may ask your  family members to describe theirs, or you may discuss what you think  will be your role based upon what you have learned in this course. What  is the role of a father during the pregnancy and during the birth  process?


My mother had fertility issues while she was trying to have  children. She tried for months without success and none of the doctors  she had seen could figure out the underlying issue of why she couldn’t  get pregnant. Eventually she ended up having to take medication to help  her get pregnant and had me, her first child, 

I don’t have any personal experience with preganacy as I am a man,  but I have witnessed several stories on the struggles of conceiving a  child, as well as the labor and delivery process. There are several  factors that apply with having a child to ensure the baby’s health and  it’s a sacrifice both the mother and father have to make in order to  ensure the health of their baby by making sure the mother is healthy  enough to carry a child.  If a mother is exposed to drugs, smoking  and/or liquor, and/or generally has a diet with poor nutrition, the baby  could have a low birth weight and even other possible birth defects.  But even if the mother is healthy, couples have to remain open to the  possiblilites of risks such as stillborns and any other unexpected  situation that is emotionally distressing.
