TL;DR: Emerging themes from the first stage of ethnographic research investigating pregnancy and loss in Qatar suggest that Qatari women are expected to be calm vessels for their growing baby and should avoid certain foods and behaviours.
Abstract: This article explores emerging themes from the first stage of ethnographic research investigating pregnancy and loss in Qatar. Issues around the development of foetal personhood, the medical management of the pregnant body and the social role of the pregnant woman are explored. Findings suggest that Qatari women are expected to be calm vessels for their growing baby and should avoid certain foods and behaviours. These ideas of risk avoidance are linked to indigenous knowledge around a mother’s influence on a child’s health and traits. Motherhood holds a particularly important place in Qatari culture and in Islam, and women are ultimately responsible for protecting and promoting fertility and for producing healthy children.

Abstract: Background: Anemia during pregnancy is a major nutritional problem that can cause health problems for mothers and their fetus. Prevention of anemia has been done but many obstacles are perceived by pregnant women. Families need to provide support to improve the prevention behavior of anemia. Objective : This research aims to explore the effect of educational intervention on family support for pregnant women in preventing anemia. Methods : A quasi-experimental design was carried out on 60 pregnant women who had done pregnancy check ups at Community Health Centre and had received iron supplement, in which 30 women were in the experimental group and the rests were in the control group. This study was conducted from December 2016 to January 2017. Family support was measured using questionnaires before and after educational intervention. Results: After educational intervention, there was a significant change from the pretest score to the posttest score in the experimental group (p<0.05). There was an increase in the average score in the experimental group, 14.47 ± 2.89 becomes 16.83 ± 2.32. Conclusion: Educational interventions can increase family support for maternal behavior in preventing pregnancy anemia such as improving adherence to taking iron supplements and high intake of food containing iron.

TL;DR: The objective of this review is to highlight the specific challenges of pregnancy management and to discuss why establishing specialist pregnancy clinics for women with rheumatic disorders could be an effective solution.
Abstract: Pregnancy in women with rheumatic disorders is known to be associated with risks for both the mother and fetus; however, these risks can be minimized with proper planning and careful management of the disease In the Middle East, there are specific cultural challenges that may have a negative impact on the care that women with rheumatic disorders receive There is a need for cross-collaboration between specialist physicians, improved awareness of rheumatic disorders among the general public and more open discussion with patients about the potential complications of pregnancy Women in the region are often unwilling to discuss their disease with their partner and are even less likely to seek advice regarding family planning from their physician The objective of this review is to highlight the specific challenges of pregnancy management and to discuss why establishing specialist pregnancy clinics for women with rheumatic disorders could be an effective solution Such clinics can provide high quality care before, during and after pregnancy as shown in several European and US centers Additionally, such clinics could be useful for the collection of pregnancy outcomes data from the Middle East, which may currently be lacking in the region, in order to highlight where further improvements can be made With specialist care and analysis of pregnancy outcomes, the standard of care for women with rheumatic disorders in this area could be significantly improved
