What Health And Safety Risks Do Birthing Livestock Pose To Pregnant Women?

Some personal injury claims involve pregnant women who have come into contact with animals, such as sheep or other livestock, that are giving birth or have just given birth. These animals can carry infections, which can put the health and safety of pregnant women and their unborn children at risk.

Written About Nancy

My grandmother’s Armenian Bible is falling apart—its cardboard covers are worn, the spine is broken, the first 48 pages are missing, and until recently it was held together by a thick rubber band. When the rubber band cracked and crumbled, I tied a bright satin ribbon around it to hold it…

A Song To Remember

Thinking of you,I waited and waited into the stillness of the night,

Until dawn came and covered me with a mantle of golden light

It washed away all my wishes,hopes and prayers of last night

 Along with a hundred things I wanted to confide.

I walked.I walked for miles.

Although I tried but in vain, your thoughts gently swept in.

All those moments, all those memories-

Flashed across my mind.…

Since the program launched in 1965, it has since been revised to extend coverage to few more of the nation's residents that meet the necessary requirements. The additional qualified groups include…

Motivation, where are you?

You know those type of people that say they're going to do something, multiple times, like, "Oh yeah I'm going to start exercising tomorrow" or "I'm totally planning to get into sewing" but then that day never actually comes? I'm one of those people. I start hobbies - lots of them - and I never seem to follow through with any of them. It is my greatest flaw, to be a jack of all trades but none of which I am a master of. 

Why is technically why I'm here at SheWrites. I desire to be a…
