It emphasizes the importance of regular medical checkups and effectively interweaves interviews with nutritionists, physicians, mothers, and expectant women.

#4628 Abortion - Abortion: The Moral Dilemma (Run time 28 min.) DVD $89.95

Caroline and Roger have watched two of their babies die of an inherited disease; they now have one healthy child and badly want another. This program puts their dilemma in very personal terms-Should they risk another pregnancy? If the fetus is found to carry the same fatal gene, should it be aborted? They have firsthand experience of the strains that a severely disabled child puts on a marriage and other children. They are Christians opposed to abortion but feel they could not bear to see another unhealthy child suffer and die. What they should do is the subject of discussion by a Catholic bioethicist, a clinical geneticist, and an Asian woman politician. (28 minutes)


#5788 Fertility & Adoption - Infertility and IVF (Run time 20 min.) DVD $89.95

This program provides an update on in vitro fertilization and the subject of infertility in general, its causes and controversies, and the various ways couples can achieve pregnancy. The program focuses on a young couple who successfully underwent IVF and had a child, and speaks with an infertility specialist who explains the process and what infertile couples can do to increase their odds of getting pregnant. The importance of counseling and what to look for in choosing an infertility clinic are also explained. (20 minutes)


#6389 Fertility & Adoption - Whose Child Is This? (Run time 29 min.) DVD $89.95

Genetic and fertility technologies have far outdistanced society's ability to deal with the consequences. Now that fertilization can occur outside the human body from "component" parts-egg and sperm-how does society deal with the ramifications of children having different, and perhaps unknown, biological and social parents? This program examines the emerging questions of parental ownership and responsibility with Dr. Howard Jones, a pioneer of in vitro fertilization in the U.S.; Elizabeth Bartholet of Harvard Univ. Law School; and George Annas, professor of health law at Boston University. (29 minutes)


#38789 Fertility & Adoption - Overcoming Infertility (Run time 28 min.) DVD $89.95

Difficulty in conceiving a child is becoming an increasingly common problem for many couples. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, infertility affects more than 6 million men and women in the United States. As this program shows, infertility can be frustrating, mysterious, and difficult to cope with-however, advances in assisted reproductive technology are also highlighted, demonstrating that many couples are eventually able to achieve their dream of starting a family. Interviews with renowned infertility experts and patients who have undergone infertility treatment provide encouraging and informative case studies. (28 minutes)


#4586 Neonatal Care - Caring for Premature Babies (Run time 19 min.) DVD $89.95

This program focuses on the effects of prematurity: the risks for pre-term labor, the possible steps to postpone it, and the problems of the premature infant. Foremost among the infant's problems are underdeveloped lungs, but prematurity affects all body systems and puts the infant at risk for other problems, including learning disabilities, cerebral palsy, and eye and ear impairment. The program covers some of the tools now available to save young lives-tools that can also cause damage; it also touches on the ethical issues involved in helping very low birth-weight babies to survive. The program concludes happily as a family leaves the hospital with their healthy baby. (19 minutes)


#1902 Pregnancy & Childbirth - The Twelve-Month Pregnancy (Run time 19 min.) DVD $89.95

This program makes a strong case for treating pregnancy as a process that begins months before conception, since much of the critical development of the fetus takes place before a woman knows she is pregnant, and since the over-all health of the fetus is dependent on the mother's health. The program warns of the risks to the fetus posed by the mother's use of alcohol; describes the possible effects of aspirin, Valium, Accutane, and cocaine; encourages women to undergo a preconception exam; and-by means of a quiz-teaches specifics about planning a successful pregnancy, showing the effects of smoking on the developing fetus, the risks of obesity, and the uses of ultrasound. (19 minutes)


#2631 Pregnancy & Childbirth - Caesarean Birth (Run time 19 min.) DVD $89.95

This program explains what a caesarean section is and under what circumstances a caesarean is performed. It offers testimony from doctors who believe too many c-sections are performed, and from others who believe the number is too small. A mother tells why she needed a c-section; an expectant mother explains why she is requesting one for her second child; and a woman who has given birth vaginally and by c-section compares the experiences. (19 minutes)


#4581 Pregnancy & Childbirth - Preparing for Childbirth (Run time 19 min.) DVD $89.95

This program examines both high-risk and normal, low-risk pregnancy. The former requires a great deal of medical attention and perhaps intervention, with a variety of risks and dangers attendant both on taking and on not taking action. But normal pregnancy, too, requires regular medical care; the program discusses the benefits of a preconception exam and the importance of nutrition and exercise during pregnancy. The program also covers C-sections and the correlation between high malpractice claims and cesarean deliveries. (19 minutes)


#5351 Pregnancy & Childbirth - Miscarriage and Stillbirth (Run time 24 min.) DVD $89.95

Approximately one in four pregnancies in the United States ends in miscarriage, and many babies die at birth or shortly after. This program looks at how bereaved parents come to terms with miscarriage and stillbirth, focusing on a special bereavement unit at a London hospital where parents are helped to cope with loss at any stage of pregnancy. Shock, confusion, and the reactions of family and friends can often lead to anger and depression. The mother may feel guilt and responsibility for her baby's death, which may in turn affect her relationship with the father. The program is becoming a model for other hospitals and support groups. (24 minutes)


#5811 Pregnancy & Childbirth - The Right Way to Be Pregnant (Run time 20 min.) DVD $89.95

This program focuses on a young woman and her pregnancy to explain what women can do to improve their chances for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. An obstetrician and a nurse provide an up-to-date explanation of what a woman contemplating pregnancy needs to be aware of, including pre-conception physicals, the importance of stopping smoking and drinking during pregnancy, medical care, diet and exercise, and high-risk and problem pregnancies. The program stresses the importance of getting prenatal care and following the guidelines that medical personnel set for each patient. (20 minutes)


#29129 Pregnancy & Childbirth - Palpation and Clinical Assessment of the Pregnant Abdomen (Run time 34 min.) DVD $89.95

This timeless program presents a practical clinical examination of the pregnant abdomen while explaining the theory behind this valuable assessment technique.

Medical students and trainee midwives alike can benefit from this thorough introduction. (34 minutes)


#29131 Pregnancy & Childbirth - Epidural Techniques in Childbirth (Run time 21 min.) DVD $89.95

In this program, obstetric anesthetist Dr. Martin Dresner explains the principles and method of epidural analgesia with the aid of an anatomical model and diagrams and then performs the technique on a patient prior to her elective cesarean section. The different uses of epidurals in obstetrics are also covered, as are the common side effects and potential dangers. Misplacement of the needle or catheter is also addressed. (21 minutes)


#8896 Neonatal Care - Perineal Repair after Childbirth (Run time 30 min.) DVD $129.95

This program provides a detailed study of the anatomy of the perineal area, the disruption that occurs from an episiotomy or a tear made during childbirth, and the surgery necessary to repair the damage. In-depth commentary, detailed diagrams, and actual step-by-step reconstructive surgery combine to create an extremely thorough treatment of this subject. (30 minutes)


#9183 Neonatal Care - One Brief Life: The Baby L Case (Run time 40 min.) DVD $129.95

During her eight weeks of life, Leaney Lavea-born prematurely and with medically insurmountable abnormalities-was dependent on machines to live. But were these machines prolonging her life, or were they merely delaying her death? This deeply moving program explores the ethical dilemma surrounding a case that began in a hospital and ended up in court. Interviews with Baby L's parents, the attending physician, the Laveas' legal counsel, and others trace the course of the battle between the parents and the hospital to assert their rights to do what they each believed was morally correct. (40 minutes)


#8587 Pregnancy & Childbirth - Breastfeeding (Run time 33 min.) DVD $129.95

This program presents a close-up view of reproduction, beginning with the fertilization of the female egg, through gestation and the millions of cell divisions, and culminating in the birth of a fully formed individual. Each stage of the development is visualized in sequence: when the heart begins to beat, when the limbs develop, when the child first moves and responds to stimuli, and when it offers its first cry to the world at the moment of birth. Sophisticated computer animation and technical narration are used throughout in an effort to explain the gestation and birth processes for the advanced learner. (35 minutes)
