Need to research ?

  1. I believe some of the nurses here are into research. Is there a research corner?

    heres my question

    We know that there are sensory nerve cells in the soft tissue and pain can be felt if you cut a piece of a tissue. Okay, I have been thinking, during the birth of a child the umbilical cord is part of the fetus' body, does it hurt the fetus during cutting the umbilical cord?

    The second important questions is
    "Does men have Post natal depression?" and is this question been researched I would love to see the study?

    Calling on to the research nurses.

    I didn't know that the nursing research corner sure does exist.

    What can I do to move this thread over to that corner ( pointing) there.

    Yes there have been studies re fathers experiencing post partum depression.

    I can't answer on fathers' post-partum depression, sorry.

    There aren't any nerves or pain receptors in the umbilical cord, so cutting it does not hurt the baby.
