The Birth of my Niece
Being able to be in the delivery room while my sister was in labor was an amazing experience. When my sister found out she was pregnant we were all upset. She was only 17 at the time and I still couldn’t believe it. I was very disappointed in her because I thought she knew better. There was not much I could do but support her. She needed my support as well as my family’s support. I just kept telling myself this all happened for a reason, and a baby is a blessing. As each day went by I became more and more excited. The disappointment was gone, and all that was left was happiness and excitement.
My family and I were really curious and excited to find out what my sister was going to have. My dad was hoping for a boy because there were no boys in the house besides himself and my grandpa. The rest of us were hoping for a girl. As the day quickly approached for when she finds out what she is having, we all became happy and nervous. That day my mom had went with my sister to her doctor’s appointment, and shortly after I received a text saying, “It’s a Girl!!!” Her due date was October 28, 2011. Words could not explain how happy I was, and that same day I started shopping for my niece.
As my sister was just about done with her first trimester she could finally hold food down. She couldn’t even hold a smoothie from Jamba Juice down. It was a rough time for her. I felt bad because every time I would be eating she would want to eat, but she knew it would just come back up. She was so happy that she was finally over the morning sickness stage. Time was flying by before we knew it she was in her second trimester.
While being in her second trimester everything was going smooth. She was finally eating and exercising every day. As the time was getting closer we started making a list of all the necessities she was going to need for when…...

Home Birth vs. Hospital Birth

...Home Birth vs. Hospital Birth Delivering a baby in the home and in the hospital both provide comfort to some, but homebirth offers decreased cost and hospital births offer more options. Some women have different birthing methods in mind when it comes to delivering a child. Some women feel that it is more convenient to stay home to deliver their child. Mothers-to-be will choose to have a hospital birth because they may feel safer or more secure knowing that if something is not right or if she has had complications, the doctor is there and she is in a hospital and everything will be okay. Are you a mother-to-be? Are you having trouble trying to figure out whether to have a homebirth or a hospital birth? I sure hope that this paper will help you make your final decision. The reason women choose to have a homebirth is because it is more convenient to stay home. She has no bags to pack, long and uncomfortable rides to the nearest hospital, and she does not have any paperwork or registration. Her chosen midwife (a person trained to assist women during childbirth) comes to her when she is ready for her. Of course, it is more convenient after the baby is born as well. She will have all of her own baby items there and there would be no need for her husband to drive home to get the baby clothes or anything. The reason women choose to have a hospital birth is because it is usually more convenient for them. They feel as though all they have to do is pack a few things and head to the...

The Birth of Venus

...The Birth of Venus Roaming through the many halls and floors of the metropolitan museum of art is an interesting and eye opening experience, especially for someone unexposed to the beauty of art. Although there were many beautiful paintings and sculptures waiting to be uncovered by wandering eyes, one painting in particular captured my attention like no other the instant I happened upon it. As if it were entrancing me and calling me towards it, the vibrant colors and elegant aura of Alexandre Cabanel’s “Birth of Venus” resonated with me, and that was the moment I knew which piece of art had chosen me. Leaving the tour group behind and unable to look away, I became enamored with this piece and urged myself to learn anything I could about the artist and his creation. According to a biography written by Jim Lane, Alexandre Cabanel was an extraordinary French painter born in the year 1823, who is known for his academic style of painting. At that time, academic art was defined as art and artists influenced under the Neoclassicism and Romanticism periods, drawing inspiration from the ancient artistic styles of Greece and Rome. The painting that strongly exemplified Cabanels Academic style most famously would be his “Birth of Venus” painting, conceived in 1863. The painting itself depicts a nude woman, a theme frequently visited in other paintings of the Romanticism movement, sprawled across a calm ocean underneath many angels, depicted as children. At the time of......

Birth Assessment

..."Birth Assessment" Throughout history there have been many ways medical and non-medical people have modified and enhanced the effectiveness of child birth. Some have made the experience more positive while others have caused physical and emotional harm to women. There are different ways that women can give birth: natural, cesarean, and hypno-birthing. Of these ways women can deliver I feel some of the most important aspects are in the advancement of men in the delivery room. It is wonderful to see the great accomplishments and improvements our culture has made through the years. In many years before men were not allowed to witness the birth of their child because it was considered inappropriate. Now men are allowed to be there in the room and most men chose to be there in the room to support their partner and witness the birth of their child. When a woman gives birth without the help of surgical or medical helped it is called natural childbirth. Many women chose to give birth this way and they do this to feel more in tune or at ease with the natural way. Just because a woman may give birth naturally it does not necessarily mean that they are not in a hospital or under the supervision of a medical professional. Any woman that chooses to go the natural childbirth route can choose where they give birth and what doctor they choose to be there for the event. Another positive is that a natural childbirth can allow the mother to be in control of every aspect of the labor......

Birth of a Nation

...Racism has been around since the beginning of time. Basically if you had a skin tone darker than the shade of white, you were inferior. Times have now changed, but there are remnants of this subject everywhere, even in film. The movie Birth of a Nation is considered one of the greatest films of all time, even with these themes. AMC’s Filmsite even has it listed within the 100 Greatest Films of All Time. Another movie with the some of the same themes is Blazing Saddles. Blazing Saddles does not have the same stature as Birth of a Nation, but it does deserve to be higher in the canon. I do believe that Blazing Saddles does not have the same stature because it is a comedy with crude humor and because it has a black sheriff as the protagonist. The D. W. Griffith film was considered controversial and is still considered controversial to this day. Basically it paints the story of the rise of the Ku Klux Klan. Of course the KKK members were the heroes of the story and saved everyone from harm. The film uses white actors painted in black face to portray freed slaves. It also portrays them as savages and rapists. There was not one “black” person in the film that wasn’t considered a villain. During the voting scene, blacks were seen taking over the polls while the whites had their votes taken away. One quote in the movie when talking about a village says, “In the villages the negroes were the office holders, men who knew none of the uses of authority.” The freed slaves were just......

Birth of a Civilization

...Birth of a Civilization An analysis of “The Negro Speaks of Rivers” by Langston Hughes 5/26/2008 American Literature 2328-8448 Deah N. Mitchell The violation of the African civilization that is known as slavery is defined as “a submission to a dominating influence” by Merriam-Webster. There are many accounts of this practice, and many more attempts to rectify its toll on African-Americans and its long-standing consequences. One such effort is the rhythmical reflection of ancestry through artistry- specifically poetry. During the Harlem Renaissance era several African American writers emerged. One of the most prominent and successful authors was James Mercer Langston Hughes. “The Negro Speaks of Rivers” was written by Hughes at the tender age of 19. This poem is reflective of four central topics: African-American ancestry, racial pride, slavery and spirituality. The most obvious use of literary art, symbolism, plays a tremendous role in this poem and is effortlessly laced throughout the seams of this intricate ode. “I've known rivers: I've known rivers ancient as the world and older than the flow of human blood in human veins.” According to the most widely accepted theories on the origins of man, homo sapiens’ appear to have originated in Great Rift Valley in Africa. Above the “rivers” can be interpreted as ancient African ancestry. The writer knows from handed down accounts the story of his people’s lineage. If Africa is home to all of our births......

His wife has a birthmark on her cheek. It is a small birthmark shaped like a hand. The husband even though he does love his wife he can’t help, but to be bothered by the birth mark a little bit. Her husband told her that she came nearly perfect, but the birthmark is keeping her from perfection. Georgiana’s husband is a renowned scientist. Her husband wishes to remove the birthmark from his beloveds face. Her husband has had a dream of him removing the mark. In his dream he is trying to remove it from her face, but the harder her tries the further and further it digs itself into her face.

His wife is taking everything he has in there. She finds a potion that is quite strong to remove freckles from ones face. She kindly asks her husband is this what you are going to use on me to remove my mark, he replies no you’ll need something much stronger. So he does the procedure and he is successful in removing the mark, but since he removed the mark his wife died soon after it was removed.

Birth of Eli

...The Birth of Eli It all started on a warm June morning. It was time to go to the hospital. Excitement was in the air. This was one of the happiest days of my life. This was the day I met my son for the first time. The time was 5:00 AM when we arrived at Huntsville Hospital. The pregnancy was a planned c-section. We walked onto the elevator and pressed the button for the baby floor. When we reached the nurses desk we did the paper work and were instructed to have a seat in the waiting room. Ten minutes after our arrival the process began. While they took my wife back to prepare for surgery, I put on the hair net and scrubs. Eventually the nurse came back to direct me toward the operating room. Because I was nervous, I did not enter into the operating room right away. Since I was afraid of what was on the other side of the door I waited in the hallway. I calmed myself as much as I could; then, I stepped into the room. I knew once I walked through that door my life would never be the same. As I watched the doctors pull my son from his mother, the tears started falling from my face; I could barely see, for a moment. I followed him to the table where he was wiped off and checked for abnormalities. The nurse looked at me said, “Congratulations.’ His mother carried him for nine months and three weeks, and now he was finally here. He weighed seven pounds six ounces and was nineteen inches in length. When my eyes hit his angelic tiny body, they froze and I......

My Birth

...hospital in Homestead, FL. My older sister and I were born at the same time in the same hospital, what are the odds? My heart felt mother Lucy Esposito gave birth to an awesome, wonderful, amazing son in me had to be born with a c-section. My mom says that I had head full of hair and looked like a fur ball. With that, I was a 6lb 7oz baby. My parents named me John Esposito after my father John Michael Esposito which gives us the same name; however my middle name is different so I’m not a junior. My middle name is Robert which came from my uncle Robert, so that is how I got my full name in John Robert Esposito. Nine months is a long time and especially was for my mother, who was a twig at only eighty seven pounds. She barely gained any weight what so ever, but got up to a hundred pounds towards the end of the pregnancy. My mom and father conceived me back in February of 1991, valentine’s baby I was! My mom says she really didn’t have any certain cravings, but that she always was craving food and never gained the weight she should of with the amount of food she ate. She said that one time she woke up in the middle of the night and was craving tacos, so my dad went out and bought some taco bell for her, and once he came back she didn’t want it anymore and wanted Chinese. My dad went out and got it for her and then once he came back my mom was sleeping and didn’t eat any of it. That would have made me so angry if I was in my dad’s position. As my mom was in labor the whole...

Zambia - My Land of Birth

...Zambia, my country of birth where I spent a significant part of my childhood, got its name from the Zambezi River, the largest river flowing into the Indian Ocean. It is a landlocked country located between the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania and Zimbabwe (Holmes & Wong, 2009, p. 7). Zambia’s population has been steadily increasing from 7.8 Million in 1990 (City Population Zambia, 2007) to 12.9 million in 2009 (US Department of State, 2009). At the forefront of Zambia’s economy is its ability to mine for great natural resources such as emeralds, aquamarines, amethyst and tourmalines (Dickovick, 2008, p. 320). It also produces 6% of the world’s copper, making it the fourth largest producing copper nation (Holmes & Wong, 2009, p. 44). Lusaka, the city I grew up in and the capital city of Zambia is one of the fastest growing cities in central Africa. Lusaka has changed dramatically from the time I left in 1990 to the time I visited it a few years ago. The changes in society, economic infrastructure and human condition have been dramatic. Zambia has changed so much over a span of 19 years. All the activities that I remember doing with my family and friends, such as safaris and picnics at the Kafue River, on the weekends and holidays have been closed. The zoo which used to be filled with amazing wildlife, which I frequently visited, does not exist anymore. All the animals which once resided there died or escaped because they were not fed properly or looked after...

Birth Order

...Birth order is defined as a person's rank by age among his or her siblings. Birth order is often believed to have a profound affect on ones distinctive character, behavior and intelligence. For our culminating task I chose the topic of birth order because it birth order has a direct relation with the family and is vary relatable topic to everyone. I thought it would be interesting research and learn more about this theory; because it gives insight on to why people the way they are. The research question I sought to find out was: Does birth order effect the combination of characteristics and qualities that form an individual's personality, behavior and intelligence and if so, how does it affect a person's distinctive character? To begin my research I first formed a hypothesis based on my general knowledge and inquiry on the subject. My hypothesis was that the chronological placement of siblings within a family would affect the combination of characteristics and qualities that form an individual's distinctive character, behavior and intelligence. My thinking was that in General, parents are excited and anticipated about their first child and hence, tend to be overly protective and pay more attention, investment, as well as expectation on this child. However, parents’ attention, investment, and expectation vary across children. As the second child arrives in the family, the firstborn may experience dethronement and the same happens to the second born once a third child......
