Switched At Birth - Season 5

Fans have been excited after learning that "Switched At Birth" has been renewed. For the first time in the show's history, the TV series will not be premiered in January.The season 4 of "Switched At Birth" ended after Bay, played by Vanessa Marano, and Daphne, played by Katie Leclerc, received a shocking news in China. In the last episode of season 4, Bay received a phone call about some emergency in Kansas. However, the plot where the next season will pick up is still unknown. Bay and Daphne have been living in China for ten months already before they received an emergency call. Fans have been wondering if they will be leaving China and if season 5 will pick up to that story as well. Will they be flying back to Kansas?Crossmap reported that Bay and Daphne will be rushing back to Kansas because John and Kathryn Kennish will be filing for divorce. Fans have also been wondering if John's character will be killed if a divorce takes place since he already has heart problem. Could it be money problems that has been dragging down their marriage? On the other hand, a few episode names have been revealed. International Business Times has recently revealed the names of the first few episodes."Episode 1 will be titled "The Call" and that it will premiere in 2016. The new season will definitely not follow the trend that seasons 2, 3 and 3 set by premiering in January; instead, season 5 episode 1 will be aired in April 2016," International Business Times revealed. "It would mark the debut of 'Switched at Birth' in Freeform TV, which is the new name for ABC Family."Meanwhile, the cast mambers are excited to be working on the series again.WE ARE SO EXCITED TO BE BACK!!! #SwitchedAtBirth Season 5! @Lizzy_Weiss @DWMoffett @gabi_endicott #FirstTableRead Constance Marie (@goconstance) January 8, 2016The release date of "Switched At Birth" has not yet been announced, but it is expected to premiere in April this year.

Switched at Birth - Season 5


Bay also manages to sort out her love life while in China. The season 4 finale showed her sort of running away from a love triangle between her, Emmett and Travis. Ultimately, her time in recovery has helped her decide that it was Travis that she still wanted. He flies out and takes a coaching job to spend that year of time with her in China, and Bay takes a job as a tattoo artist.

Switched at Birth concluded its five-season run on Tuesday in much the same way it started: with a strong sense of family as the Kennish-Vasquez clan laid on their front lawn together, gazing up at a rare comet.

The Hollywood Reporter You mentioned there was a tag you shot at the end of season four that could have served as a series finale. Can you talk a little bit about what it was and why you decided not to use it?

According to "Switched at Birth" season 5 spoilers from Ecumenical News, Bay (Vanessa Marano) will reportedly get pregnant in the coming episodes. It is still, however, unclear if the baby daddy is Emmett (Sean Berdy) or if it was the result of the assault. In the season 4 finale, viewers saw Emmett break up with Bay. If she is indeed pregnant with his child, could Emmet be returning in the coming episodes?

After so much time, effort, dreaming, and longing, Bay finally got to live out her dream of becoming a tattoo artist. We finally saw her give her first tattoo this season, and it was epic to say the least. Her first day on the job was quite eventful considering her parents showed up taking pictures while she was just about to get started with her first customer. She lost the customer as expected.

After a long absence, Switched at Birth returned to television at the end of last month and is now headlong into its final season. The series returned after 15 months on hiatus, something that wasn't easy for fans or showrunner Lizzy Weiss. Weiss recently opened up about the difficulty of the long hiatus and the crew's thoughts and feelings while fans were forced to wait, saying this:

The series was meant to return in March of 2016 but was put on hold, as Freeform was still in its transformation from the old branding of ABC Family. On top of that, fans of Switched At Birth were shocked when Lizzy Weiss announced later the same month that Season 5 would be the final season for the series. That's quite a shot to the gut to take all in one month, and Weiss was concerned that not quite all of the fans were getting the message.

With the series being off the air for so long, Lizzy Weiss was unsure if all the fans would be returning for the final season of Switched at Birth. After having a few older fans reach out to her on Twitter, Weiss began to wonder if perhaps fans outside of the social media demographic were aware of what was happening to their beloved series. Whether they learn about the cancellation now while it runs or down the road makes no difference to Weiss, but she has expressed hope that all fans find out:

As THR mentions, Season 5 is half the length of the previous Switched At Birth seasons. Lizzy Weiss indicates that it wasn't known whether the season would be getting its usual 20 episodes or 10 when production began, but they had planned for 10 in the event that the shorter order happened. Season 5's main focus is race relations on campus, which has been a hot-button issue in the past year. Even though the series has been shortened, the cast still hopes their final season will hit some issues that will grab viewers' attention as well as headlines.

Toby (Lucas Grabeel) and Lily (Rachel Shenton) will be getting engaged in season 5. At the same time, they will be preparing for the future challenges that they will encounter while anticipating the arrival of their child.

Previously in "Switched at Birth," Lily broke the news to Toby that she is pregnant and they both find out that the child Lily is carrying has been diagnosed with Down syndrome. He made the decision to accept the reality and takes responsibility of becoming a father to a child with Down syndrome. Toby did a lot of research, and he even visited a center for children with disorders to help him prepare for the birth of their child.

Meanwhile, Angelo returns to Daphne in a form of a stranger who claims to have received his heart. According to the listing, "A mysterious young woman has Bay (Vanessa Marano) and Daphne (Katie Leclerc) flooded with memories of their deceased father Angelo, and they must decide if they should let her into their lives. Melody (Marlee Matlin) asks her sons to make amends so the family can be together for her birthday, but it might be too late."

For investors in the healthcare sector, such a change could potentially have outsized effects, but nailing down just what those might be gets a bit tricky. This post will focus on the implications OTC birth control could have for drug manufacturers, but hospitals, insurers and even the public sector would almost certainly experience profound changes as well.

Of the estimated 43 million women at risk for unintended pregnancies in 2008, only 68% used birth control consistently, with 18% reporting inconsistent use and 14% reporting non-use or long gaps in use.

Admittedly, these data are not current: the estimated time spent trying to avoid pregnancy comes from 2000, the use patterns for birth control from 2008. Still, they give us an order of magnitude: millions of women who could potentially increase their birth control use, and perhaps do so for decades.

The question is, why do these women use birth control infrequently or not at all, and what would cause them to join the ranks of consistent users? The answer appears to be money. A 2009 study, again by the Guttmacher Institute, found that of surveyed women (947 sexually active pill users with household incomes of less than $75,000 a year, aged between 18 and 34), 25% had used their prescription inconsistently in order to save money. Many had delayed visiting the doctor for the same reason.

Caveats aside, a theme emerges: if birth control is cheap, more women will use it more often. Making the pill available without a prescription would make visiting a doctor unnecessary, reducing both cost and inconvenience.

Another interesting find of the Zyrtec study has to do with cost. The average consumer who switched allergy medications between January and June of 2008 paid an extra dollar, which is almost negligible. Of those who switched to OTC Zyrtec, however, 68% paid more than they had previously, and the average out-of-pocket increase was $11.68.

My first pregnancy was attained easily and progressed normally. I had a normal labor and birth without medication or interventions. Friends surrounded me as I labored in the same birthing center where I worked as a nurse. My husband cradled me in his arms as we watched our perfect daughter come into this world. It was an empowering gift of an ideal birth.
