As a mother and as a physician, I understand there are many unknowns right now for moms as they prepare to deliver their babies. Despite the challenges we face with the COVID-19 pandemic, Barton Health continues to provide compassionate care that puts mothers and babies first. Barton’s practices in place honor the needs of mother and child while upholding everyone’s health and safety.

Barton makes carefully calculated decisions with our patients’ best interests in mind, and we do what we feel is best for our community while following state and federal guidelines for maternity care. Our practices can differ from other hospitals in the state because of this. Allow me to shine a light on our procedures, and offer some reassurance for parents-to-be during these unprecedented times: A support person, as well as a doula can be with the delivering mother at the hospital

Jennifer Birdsall, Ph.D.

What is touch starvation?

Also known as “touch deprivation,” “skin hunger” or “hug deprivation,” touch starvation is what occurs when a person’s exposure to physical contact has been significantly reduced or eliminated, such as during the COVID-19 pandemic and associated social distancing.

I began researching this phenomenon and discovered there was a name for it after a number of psychologists in my organization sought consultation on ways to reduce the added psychological impacts they were seeing in their skilled nursing home patients from the lack of positive human touch. Further, the psychologists were expressing how difficult it was for themselves not being able to offer a needed hug or brief hand holding during their psychotherapy sessions with patients struggling from significant grief, depression and fears.

Shiny skin can be a nuisance. And when you try to alleviate the problem — “Maybe I just need to wash my face again?” — you can unknowingly aggravate already irritated skin.

Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to figure out what’s giving your face a little bit of extra shine. And that makes figuring out how to fix it a little bit more difficult, too.

The good news is, the oil that causes shine isn’t a bad thing. In fact, it’s a perfectly healthy part of your skin’s barrier.

But sometimes, the environment, the products you use, and even your hormones can throw off your skin’s natural balance.

Here’s what exactly shiny skin is, plus how to manage the shine no matter what’s

Unfortunately, that’s too often not the case.

A recent report reveals how the state foster system acts as a secondary criminal justice system, one that targets cannabis consumers—and even medical marijuana patients.
