Hi everyone, I had a baby recently and want to write an article advising pregnant women on perineal tears, healing, how to avoid them, etc. Since the article will unavoidably contain words related to female anatomy, will it be allowed on HubPages (and hopefully a niche site?) I don't want to spend hours writing an article only for it to be flagged. Anyone have an idea? TYIA!
There's the need for such an article. Your female folks would advice you better. Years ago, I wrote an article on breast-feeding babes when my wife put to bed a babe girl. The only problem with the article is that hubpages refuse to place Ads on the story.
Poppyr, I'd look to see what types of articles are on the niche site(s) you'd like to submit to. That'll give you an idea of what's acceptable.
I had perineal tears when I gave birth to my son, but that's because my midwife wanted me to tear naturally rather than have an episiotomy. The reasoning was that natural tears heal naturally with minimal scarring, if any.
You can always write it, post it, and see what happens.
Congratulations! Every woman deserves the perineal tears naturally.
'Every woman'? Or just the ones who give birth?
Every woman who gave birth, don't birth through the normal process, that is via, the virgina. Do they? Most women have regretted not birthing babes the natural way, which is the normal stage in proving they womanhood. So, every woman whether she's given birth or not will soon likely goes through the process in due time. They naturally deserves it. It's they birth right. But certain will not able to due to complications. And the surgeon knife comes to their aid. Much thanks.
Not all women choose to have children, Miebakagh.
And not all are able to have natural births. I have had three c-sections. Not through choice. I don't regret anything - I am just happy my babies thrived. I don't see it as a 'right'. We are all built differently.
Bev, it seems you're referencing to Catholic Nuns or Mother(Superior) that don't do the sex act. I refused to believe because evidences abound. These excempted themselves to get pregnant and give birth to babes. Interestly enough, these and they male counterparts would like to adopted you and your family(ah ah!?). Plus all other faith...muslem. Pagan, hindus, etc. I don't have those natural euniche here in mind. Now, is it mrmal for argument sake for a woman not to gave birth when she's able to, but to adopted others kids? They're many single mothers with their kids from the sexual intercourse.
Bev may respond to your post, but I have to say that not all women want to have children, whether or not they are nuns. In addition, a woman doesn't need to have a baby the natural way to prove her womanhood. Perhaps the customs are different in your country, but that's the way it is in the countries where I've lived.
Linda, thank you and rightly too. I hope no offense at all? But two months ago, I heard a Western trained nurse newly arrived in my community that she choice to remain single without children. Custom ask who should take care of her in her old age?
Hi, Miebakagh. I'm not offended. In answer to your question, the nurse can look after herself in old age and get help from social and medical agencies if she needs it.
I realize that help from agencies (if the aid is needed) may not be possible in some countries. It would be sad if the only reason that a woman had children was so that they could look after her in old age, though.
Miebakagh, now you're being silly. I've known several married women who have chosen not to have children. It is their "right."
Mizbejabb, perhaps you're referencing to those grown ups who have already childrens and are grown up into adult likewise? I knom these sets will not like to have childrens again. Or it is those with rare medical condition/history that they are unable to bear children? A woman strong, healthy, married, but do not want to have children? Whatever the right and privilege, so be it. Interestly, these are man made laws. Nature did not dictate such. Have you seen the animals or vegetations fail to mate or propagate? Lets think that for a year that should happen. What should be the consequences?
No, I'm not 'referencing Catholic nuns', Miebakah. What do you refuse to believe? That some women **choose** not to have children? I assure you, it's true.
I don't understand this: "Interestly enough, these and they male counterparts would like to adopted you and your family(ah ah!?)." Adopt me?
Yes, it's perfectly normal in our society for a woman to choose not to have children. My sister, for example, decided not to have children because she married a man who already had kids from his previous marriage.
There are many families who choose to adopt or foster children.

Your pointer 3: I've discuss it with Mizbejabbers above. Thanks for a fruitful discussion. Meanwhile, enjoy the weekend.
You mentioned before that you should probably leave the topic to women, I respectfully suggest that you do so.
I suggest writing the article, letting it automatically lose ad revenue (or maybe not), and if you do lose ad revenue contacting the HP team. They do their best to review all content that loses ad revenue automatically, and they will undo that in the case of an educational article. I had this occur on an article about circumcision, and my guess is that even though circumcision is expressly frowned upon by the rules of HP, they reinstated my ad revenue because it was educational and not argumentative and/or disparaging.
There is a chance this article could be served restricted ads. I don't think ads would need to be removed completely. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
By the way, Poppy, congratulations on the new arrival!
Ah, congratulations! And ow, I had an episiotomy and the pain is, I think, similar
I would write it. I'd write it and just be mindful about how often you use certain words, keeping in mind that Google expects medical sites (which, HP has niche medical sites) to use anatomical language.
The TOS only mention that articles can't contain depictions of nudity or sexual activity, so there shouldn't be a problem. I remember we had problems a few years ago with Adsense ads and I know I had a warning on my Google Adsense account referring to a shocking image. So Adsense ads were suspended on an article. On investigation it turned out that I had included an image of a rash on a hand. Presumably AI detects these things and flagged it. I contacted them and told them it was ridiculous and the warning was cleared.
Were you going to use diagrams or medical images? (which could be a problem)
I believe there have been a few issues over the years that I've seen discussed in the forums.
HP/advertisers can be sensitive about certain wording or images, even when it's a responsible and informative piece.
The US generally can be a pretty sensitive place when it comes to body issues (compared to Europe in my experience) and so much can come down to pleasing the advertisers, who seem to dictate things ultimately.
So my advice would be to do what you're doing and try to find out in advance, before you put all the work in. If you get no response in the forums, try emailing, see if they will give you some more specific guides than the vague stuff in the TOS?
The only issues I would see would be that Hubpages shuts down mention of reproductive organs and sex. It would take a little creativity to avoid mentioning either and probably leave out some important information. You would also need to use language that makes it clear you are speaking from your valuable experience and not offering any kind of general medical advice.
Miebakagh if I may offer a scenario, one of thousands of different ones, that occur around the choice to have or not to have children that have nothing to do with taking a vow to be a Bride of Christ.
When we were newlyweds, my wife was diagnosed with lupus, a condition, the doctors advised us, that meant that if she got pregnant she might very well die. I immediately got a vasectomy and we adopted two boys who are now growing into middle age.
And Bev, as you can see, I have experience at adoption so you're on. Why? Because you seem like a lovely person of high intelligence, and you have a boatload of dogs and kitties, and I can always use help with my grammar.
And finally, this gets a bit delicate. Miebakagh I know you mean well when you come on the forum but often your poor English grammar leads to misinterpretations of your comments. Read everything you have written over carefully and run it through a grammar checker before you press send.
