It's the doctor's responsibility, not the nurse's! ...Read more
Was talking to a nurse friend and she says generally, female fetuses are often miscarried than males. True? So if miscarriage happens, it's a girl?

Chromosomal defects are seen in many when tissue is analysed. Males and females are both miscarried. Since the material is often not available for study, exact male/female ratio is not known. ...Read more

I have worked with several psychotherapy patients who appeared to "outgrow" their stuttering. ...Read more
