Desire to Have a Deaf Baby CONSENSUS on this page seems to be: 1. Deaf parents wanting to adopt a deaf baby (one already born deaf) is ethical and probably advantageous, laudable. 2. Deaf parents wanting to create a deaf baby (removing its ability to hear through genetic manipulation or othe…r means) is unethical, because it reduces choice and opportunity for the child. * * *individual opinions * * * Assuming you are talking about adopting a deaf child, I think that would be a wonderful thing for a deaf couple to do. So very many special needs children are in need of loving homes, yet get passed over for numerous reasons. A deaf couple who adopts a deaf child would be in an excellent position to love, raise and teach a deaf child because they have their own experiences to draw from. On the other hand, if a you mean you want to have a biological child and hope your child is deaf? I think that is very selfish and you may be too immature at this point to be considering having a baby. While deafness is a disability many people not only live with but overcome it to live fulfilling lives - successful business people, celebrities, etc., why would you wish for your child to be anything less than perfectly healthy in every way like any normal prospective parent does? And if your child is born with perfect hearing, will you still be able to love him or her the way you should? Or will you feel disappointment? I don't think ethics have anything to do with it. It's more a matter of maturity and selflessness. No matter whether you adopt or have biological children, no matter whether your child has disabilities of any kind or whether he is perfectly healthy, being a parent means you must very often be selfless and make sacrifices - and be mature enough accept this and to deal with what nature hands you. I think you already know the answer to your question, don't you? In you heart you know you are not GOD. And don't forget all of those beautiful, and otherwise healthy deaf children who are just waiting for a loving family. . I think there is nothing wrong with it. If you feel that it is what you want to do, then it is ethical. Only you can determine the ethical value of the decision you decide to make. Do what you feel is right by you. . And how about the rights of the child ? If I grew up, and found out that my parents went out of their way to have a baby that was deaf, I would be angry at them. Deafness is a huge challenge to over-come, even when it happens naturally. If it was part of a parental plan, I'd feel ilke some kind of a freak, the result of some twisted idea of "equality". . What do a child's rights have to do with this? If a child is already deaf or is destined to be born deaf, rights or even fairness have little to do with it. I don't think it is possible to deliberately choose to give birth to a deaf child. Unless I've missed something genetic researchers are trying to find a way to do away with birth defects, not create them. What would be unethical, in my opinion, would be for a geneticist (if the technology were commonly available) to help create a child with a 'birth defect.' Then I would have to agree with the above argument. Just imagine the sticky legal issues that would be involved if such things were possible: the child's rights, the parents' rights', womens' rights; ethics, religion, politics...it's enough to make one's head spin. I don't exactly think it's right for a couple to hope their baby is deaf, but since I am not deaf, I can't look at this from their point of view. Perhaps they feel unsure of their ability to raise a child who can hear? I still don't think that is a good reason, but I think I could, at least, understand it. I don't know that I would be up to properly raising and teaching a deaf child. Nevertheless, it would be MY child and I'd do anything and everything I could to the best of my ability to give that child a normal life. As for adoption, every child deserves to have a loving family. If a couple, deaf or otherwise, chooses to adopt a child with a disability, then, more power to them, I say. Not everyone has the ability, strength, patience, or compassion to do this and I admire those who do. . There is nothing wrong with hoping for or wanting a Deaf child. Although I do agree with statements above about genetically manipulating your baby to be Deaf, I don't think that this would be right in any way, such as trying to give your child blue eyes or any other specific characteristic. I am Deaf myself, but was born hearing. I became Deaf at the age of 2 due to meningitis, so it is no more likely for me than for anyone else to have a Deaf child. I plan to adopt, because I want at least one Deaf child in the family. Wishes and hopes are not unethical. . I have a feeling the above answers have gone in a different direction than the questioner intended? Presumably, you're asking if it's okay to seek specifically to ADOPT a child who is deaf? In answer to that, it's not only ok, it's wonderful! Any adopted child struggles with feeling a sense of differentness and "unbelonging" with regard to their adoptive family. Any way that the adoptive family can truly relate to and understand the child's needs is valuable. Adoption workers and agencies (especially those dealing with children with special needs) struggle to find families that are, for example, racially similar to the children they're trying to adopt. Naturally, many people (myself included) have adopted children of a different race than they are, but it is in many ways easier for the child to be adopted by a family of the same race as they are. I'm given to understand that the deaf community is strongly bonded as a "sub-culture," and I can only imagine how helpful it might be to a deaf child to be adopted by deaf parents. Somewhere in my research, I think I've seen an organization specifically geared toward helping to place children with hearing loss ... but I can't remember where. Perhaps a web search of "deaf child adoption agency" might help? . I'm an interpreter married to a Deaf man who may or may not pass on his deafness. We have no intention of doing anything to intentionally create a Deaf baby, but we know the odds and it is entirely possible that we may do so and that's fine with us. We have as much of a right to have a child as anyone else and if this child is Deaf, we know what to do and will be thrilled to pass on the knowlege of ASL and Deaf Culture. It will more than likely be hearing, and that's great too. . If you want to adopt a deaf child, I think that's great. It's not unethical because a deaf couple has more knowledge and could better help a deaf baby. . The child will be well served with parents who are able to "speak" ASL and understand where they are coming from. You would be the perfect parents for a deaf child. . Deaf parents adopting deaf children sounds like a great idea, they'd likely be especially well-equipped for it. . As for deliberately choosing to create such a child (which is not only possible, but has now happened. Copy/paste this address for news story : http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2002/04/08/1017206314691.HTML )â¦ Well, the clearest single-sentence definition of a good parent is one who wants her/his child to have a better life than he or she had. *Not* the same - *better*. This includes hoping her/his child will be born with more advantages and fewer weaknesses and vulnerabilities -of *any* kind- than he was. To wish anything less for your child -especially if you act on it- is child abuse. Its more subtle than a black eye - and much more damaging. The couple who deliberately caused their baby to be born deaf have committed a clearly unethical act and should be prosecuted for child abuse, and the child should be taken out of that home by Child Protective Services before any further harm comes to it, and placed with a loving family who would never knowingly bring harm to their child. Well, this is just my personal opinion, no medical advice or psychological answers. I have never really been around many deaf people but I can understand both sides of it seeming like a good thing and a bad thing. It could be a good thing because both of you are deaf and might find it easier to communicate with your child and your child may be able to appreciate things that those who can hear may take for granted. But I am sure you and your spouse have had difficulties with being deaf and have at some point wanted to have the ability to hear and as a parent is your responsibility to want the best for your child. If you are wanting a deaf child so that he/she may be able to appreciate things in life that others take for granted it is not a bad reason in my opinion. But if you are wanting a deaf baby so that you can communicate better or so that your child does not have something from life that you and your spouse never had that can be seen as kind of a selfish reason in my opinion. I wish you the best of of luck with your baby. In my opinion, yes. I find it very unethical to want a child with a disability. I understand your reasoning, and I am not condemning wanting a tie to your child. I understand that you want to be able to communicate with your child and have something in commong. However, my issue is why would you want your child to have a disability? Why would you want your child to go through so much more suffering? I am pretty sure that after a certain amount of time, your child will get used to it, and I understand that life is hard, but still. Is that what you want for them? ( Full Answer )
Answer . There is no feeling that comes with conception. Most conception actually happens a day or two after you have sex. Sperm, no matter how much you clean yourself afterwards, can live in the body for up to 3 days. Meaning you could have sex tonight and not be pregnant until tomorrow or the d…ay after tomorrow.

Giving birth can be painful but it pays off in the end its like taking ur bottom lip and streching it over ur head to the back of ur neck! It really hurt for the first baby but inproves for the second as the survix is already streched but it is worth it to have little boy or girl !! good Luck… x ( Full Answer )

The man puts his man hood in to the women's hood and the man release white sticky stuff that makes the babies.

I had a vacuum delivery, and the pain of the baby coming out was like hell on earth.
First time Mums usually feel the baby moving from about 20 weeks, second time around you may feel it earlier, 16-17 weeks. Slender women will probably feel it before their better padded sisters.
No at 8 weeks the baby is about the size of a raspberry. It would not be possible to feel the baby move that early.
when i was pregnant my son would only move for certain people he would never move for his daddy so i depends on the baby really but my sister felt my son at 61/2 months
Not necessarily. Only if the deafness was obtained genetically. For example, I am a deaf person, but it was not hereditary. Therefore, I will not have deaf children. However, if a deaf person is deaf from hereditary factors - (i.e. the mother is deaf or the grandfather is deaf) - it indicates that t…here is a gene that carries the deaf factor, which means that it is possible for a deaf person to have deaf children.

Giving birth is different for each person doing it. There isusually some amount of discomfort or pain, although some postsurgical patients sometimes experience much less pain than others.Contractions happen at regular, shortening intervals, resulting inthe dilation of the cervix and the expulsion of… the baby. As thebaby moves down the birth canal, the pain often diminishes almostentirely, replaced by the need to push, similar to during a bowelmovement. After pressure from the baby's head is gone from thenerves serving the perineal area, the pain usually returns,although it is much less than that felt during active labor. Afterbirth, the perineal area is often numbed up for sutures if therewas tearing. Moms who give birth via cesarean are either "put to sleep" duringdelivery, or given a spinal anesthetic so that birth isn't feltother than pulling or pressure type sensations. Recovery pain isoften rougher on C section moms. ( Full Answer )
Painful, but a nice pain. once you have had the baby, you forget about the pain!
That is not always the case, because most mothers want their baby to hear. If they do want their baby to be deaf, it is because they want their baby to be just like them, suffer like them, or understand the way their mother is.. It may also be because she wants to be able to communicate well with h…er child, in sign language, as opposed to having a hearing child, who would have to use sign language to talk to her, and it might seem to her that she would feel more comfortable if the child were also deaf and didn't have to use sign language just because of her.

Is it selfish for a deaf person to want their child to be deaf. Son is hearing impaired and girlfriend is deaf. Their baby can hear but she said she wishes the baby was deaf.?
It is more of a feeling that you want your child to be like you: there is honesty in stating the fact. Many deaf people do not see an advantage to hearing; in fact there is quite a controversy over the collinear implant solution that would restore hearing for some deaf people. However, the child …will have an advantage in learning sign language to communicate with her deaf parent. Having access to language as a toddler aids learning skills. ( Full Answer )
Of course. Being Deaf doesn't mean that you can't laugh, giggle, or smile. The baby wouldn't be able to hear herself/himself laugh obviously, but he/she has no limitations expressing amusement. Unless a mental retardation is associated with the deafness, Deaf people are just like hearing people with… one exception. They can't hear. =] They drive cars, go to work, earn degrees, get married, etc. ( Full Answer )
First time moms, not usually until 19 wks. Second time mommy's however, it begins as early as 15 wks. That's usually because the first time around you might be confusing your bubbling hungry belly for baby movements, where as the second time you know exactly what it feels like and you can tell if it…s just hunger bubbles. :) ( Full Answer )
In the beginning it feels like muscle spasms in your uterus. Later it becomes a little more intense like someone is nudging you from the inside. Yea it almost feels like a twitch it is annoying me at the minute lol :)
around 24 weeks, give or take a few. Baby can be felt a lot earlier with a bit of patience. Have the mother lie on her back and relax for 10-15 mins, then place your hand between the bellybutton and top of the pubic area. Then you want to add a firm, constant pressure hard enough that it just dose…nt cause any pain, then wait. Eventually you'll feel slight flutters, or sometimes a bit of "rippling" under your touch as your baby tries to get comfortable under the added pressure of your touch. Mother can also help you by letting you know when your feeling movement from baby, and not just a bubbly stomach. We're 14 weeks at the moment, and I have been able to feel our baby for about a week now, and it was the same with our older lad as well. The propper kicks and bumps will happen round 20+ weeks.

Yes. My son was in breech position until 38 weeks, I felt him kick a lot. Often he would kick my cervix. He would also punch and push his head under my ribs. Breech babies move just as much as non-breech babies.
a baby can feel as soon as its born remember that they are still like you and me
haha no its still very small and not large enough to kick against you its like the size of your index finger or even less depending.
You can fell it in 18-23 weeks if this is your first time, if not your first time you might fell it earlier then that.
If you hold Shift while clicking your pregnant Sim there is an option to *feel baby*. The mother then feels the baby.
Probably. They are human beings. They can't express it very well, and it's not a very sophisticated form of anger...more akin to frustration.
Typically after birth, the doctor will perform tests to see how the baby responds to various noises. When no response is triggered by any noises made, the baby is presumed deaf until further tests are conducted.
You probably won't feel your baby kick until around week 16 and 22, even though the baby has been moving since week 7 or 8. You may have already witnessed these movements during an ultrasound. This is often felt as a fluttering feeling or a grasshopper walking across your belly during the first m…ovements. ( Full Answer )
Sometimes the baby can move up and make you feel a little short of breath because your lungs can't properly expand. This is temporary. However, as the baby grows and begins running out of room he or she can kick as far as the ribcage. My daughter gave me a kick in the 7th month that felt like it hit… my lung. I lost my breath and dropped to my knees from intense pain. Babies have been known to bruise a rib. ( Full Answer )
You probably won't feel your baby kick until around week 16 and 22, even though the baby has been moving since week 7 or 8. You may have already witnessed these movements during an ultrasound. This is often felt as a fluttering feeling or a grasshopper walking across your belly during the first move…ments. At first, you will not notice many kicks, and this is okay. One day you may notice the baby is quite active and feel no movement at all the next day. It is nothing to worry about until you have movement on a regular basis and should keep track. If you notice a lack of movement, you should contact your doctor soon (don't panic this doesn't mean you are having a miscarriage, just room for concern and you doctor may want to induce you early to protect the health of you and your baby).

Some expectant mothers feel the first kicks about 16 weeks into the pregnancy, although first-time mothers will often not sense the small movements.
normally around 16 weeks, but they say it depends whether its your first or second pregnancy, as on your first you don't really know what you are looking for.
it can be felt, but not all women feel it... some mistake their own heartbeat for the baby's...
Sound is universal.Humans share sound waves.Sound explained in four ways by Indian scientists.Para (pure) pasyanthi (attached with air) madhyama (In the vocal chords) Viechari (word spoken and written).Pasyanthi may be shared as an emotion with baby.
They do it because they love you. Give them time and you will see that as you become more mature they will eventually start treating you as an adult.
Gently and carefully! To tell if your female rabbit is pregnant, gently press your fingers along her belly. Within as little as one week after fertilization, you should be able to notice several small, marble-like lumps in her abdomen. But be careful; pressing too hard can damage the babies.
Wonderful. Amazing. When the baby gets bigger and starts to kick, you can actually see it.In the beginning , it just feels like flutters, then like something rolling under your skin. Sometimes it's a bit uncomfortable , the baby can press on your bladder, or press up against your diaphragm and make …you feel alittle out of breath , or cause you to have heartburn. It should not be really painful. ( Full Answer )
Yes :) it normally happens with second child because your more intune with you body I felt my second child at 8 weeks prego they thought I was crazy then I proved them wrong in a ultrasound lol
It depends what is meant by baby talk and it is really important to discourage one type of baby talk but definitely not the other. There is a type of baby talk called " parentese " or " motherese" which is the way you hear most parents talk to their young babies. It is the natural way adults an…d older children talk to babies using a special high pitched sing song voice which glides up and down, exaggerates the vowel sounds and repeats sounds. It seems that all around the world there are versions of baby talk. Something like "Coochy coochy coo" would qualify as 'baby talk'. It is useful to babies because . babies love it . it grabs their attention . they find it entertaining . prefer it to adult-type conversation . they can see the shape the speaker's mouth makes to say "oo" . adults doing baby talk tend to smile too and exhibit happiness . babies pick up on the deep emotional connection Research by Dan Theissen and others has shown that babies spoken to in this way learn new words quicker that babies who only hear adult-type talk. Also babies seem to love to be talked to in that way. So this type of baby talk is great for babies under 12 months, to get the process of talking started. The next type of baby talk is where adults talk to their babies using the 'baby words' that babies say while they are learning to speak, like 'na-na " for banana. This is the type of baby talk parents should avoid using themselves, especially after baby reaches 12 months. By then baby should be saying sounds and short words he's picked up during the the infant months. It's okay for the baby to say na-na until his mouth muscles are mature enough to pronounce Ba-na-na , but the parents and carers should always be using the correct pronunciation as a good model for the baby so he doesn't think the 'baby words" are the correct way to speak.

The male needs to stick his penis into the female's vagina and deliver sperms to the female's egg. The egg then must be fertilized.
Every woman and every pregnancy is different. Most women will begin feeling movement around 14 to 18 weeks.
Feeling your baby move for the first time when you are pregnant is very exciting. Your baby started moving around around 7 weeks, but you won't be able to feel him until 16 - 22 weeks. If you have already had a baby, you might be able to feel it a little earlier because you know what the movement fe…els like. Mothers have described the movements as butterflies or even popcorn popping in your stomach. Once you feel the movement more frequently you will be able to tell without a doubt that it's the baby moving and not gas or hunger pains. The movements start out fairly weak, but late in your pregnancy they will get much stronger! ( Full Answer )
Babies do not breathe in the womb, as the womb is filled with fluid and to breathe in utero would be like drowning.

You can feel your own heart beat in the neck, but you can't feel your baby's heart beat in your neck. A baby's heart beat is very difficult to feel and is usually picked up by ultrasound Doppler or with a stethoscope
You will worry or be alarmed.Stimulate the baby to move by giving her a snack ,touch your tummy, let him be awake with a sound or try to repositioned yourself in bed.
Many young girls fantasize (think about, imagine) what it would be like to be pregnant, give birth, and have a baby. But truthfully, pregnancy is one of the hardest conditions for a woman's body to go through. Labor and delivery hurt badly. Your body is never the same afterward. And raising a ch…ild for 18 years at minimum is expensive and hard work. Just be sure you know these facts and modify what you think it might be like to be pregnant. ( Full Answer )
