There are a number of days in your life that you will label as 'the most beautiful days'. The delivery of your children is probably one of them, besides perhaps your marriage, special holidays, the day you finished your house or your graduation. From all these days a whole range of photos is taken except ... of the day of your birth.
Do you suffer from hemorrhoids after delivery? You are not the only one, about 70% of all women suffer from hemorrhoids during pregnancy or after delivery. Besides the fact that they are very annoying, hemorrhoids are not harmful to your health. However, you may suffer from itching, a burning sensation and pain with your anus.
If your pregnancy runs without any strange complications or abnormalities then you have a choice: home birth or hospital delivery. Both deliveries have advantages and disadvantages and the choice is entirely up to you. If you prefer giving birth in your own environment because you can relax more then a home birth is more your thing.
Breech presentation occurs in approximately 3 to 4% of unborn babies at the end of pregnancy (36 weeks). A breech presentation means that your baby is lying down with his or her buttocks instead of the head. Originally it is the intention that your baby is in a head position, this brings the least complications.
A photo of a baby with an IUD in his hand recently went viral on social media. The impression is created that at birth the baby holds the coil of his mother in his hand. It is claimed that the baby was born with the coil in his hand. This post was posted on Facebook by his mother, Lucy Hellein from Alabama, but she never thought that he would be shared so often.
As the weeks and months pass, the moment comes closer. The moment you give birth! Hopefully everything is ready in the house such as the nursery, clothes, diapers, car seat and the buggy. Now only your baby! During pregnancy you will probably have felt the discomfort of hard bellies a few times.
The closer you get to the due date, the more you will get your baby finally in your arms. That is why the last few steps of your pregnancy can sometimes weigh considerably. Especially if you have passed the 40 weeks of pregnancy but still do not have a baby. When you have 42 weeks on it, the hospital takes action and starts giving birth.
During the birth it can happen that the head of your baby does not fit well between your pelvis. The result: an emergency Cesarean section or you get annoying symptoms on your pelvic floor after delivery. To prevent this, it is good to determine in advance whether the head fits between the pelvic floor.
In the last trimester of your pregnancy, the baby's descending begins. Your baby then sinks towards your pelvis. This process can take a number of weeks. It is also possible that your baby does not descend during your pregnancy. There is nothing to worry about, during the delivery your baby will still descend.
During the delivery it can sometimes be necessary for the midwife to make a cut. Usually this happens because the baby is in distress or because you are about to rupture. After a cut has been made, your baby can be born more easily. This is the advantage of it. But cutting in during labor also has several drawbacks.
It can happen that the birth of your child takes too long or that complications occur that make it better for the child to be born. In that case, the choice is made for induction of labor, which means in short: the artificial initiation of the contractions and the birth.
Maternity fever was a disease or infection that used to occur regularly in women who had recently given birth to their little baby. Usually the cause was poor hygiene of the hospital, doctor or medical team. In the past, this disease required many lives. Today, fortunately, it is still very rare because hospitals have strict rules regarding hygiene.
