What Extra Precautions Need To Be Taken After Cesarean Delivery?

What Extra Precautions Need To Be Taken After Cesarean Delivery?

10 Extra Precautions Need To Be Taken After Cesarean Delivery:

A Cesarean Delivery is unlike normal (vaginal) delivery with fast recovery period. It usually takes four to six weeks for a woman to recover after a C-section.

1. Take Medications for Pain and Discomfort

After the anaesthesia wears off, you will feel pain and discomfort. On first doses, the pain medications will be given intravenously and then after a few days, they will be given orally. Take these medications piously.

2. Get Plenty of Rest and Sleep

Having ample amount of rest and sleep will get your strength back after the Caesarean Delivery. A tip is to fall asleep when your baby falls asleep too. Sleep with your baby especially in the first few weeks of recovery.

3. Ambulate Early

Early ambulation is important after a C-Section. Air may be trapped inside the stomach that causes pain. To relieve the pain and discomfort, mothers should start walking 24 hours after surgery. Sitting, standing and walking should be done in the next 24 hours as well. Fast recovery will be achieved after doing moderate physical activity.

4. Monitor Your Bleeding

Lochia bleeding is important to monitor in the first few weeks after the delivery. The lochia colour, consistency and amount should change over time.

5. Take Fibre-Rich Foods and Know What to Avoid

Fibre-rich foods are important in women recovering from Caesarean Delivery because they relieve constipation and gas formation. Fruits and vegetables are good source of fibre.

6. Learn How to Care for Your Wound

Wash your hands whenever you inspect your wound or change wound dressing. This is the best way to prevent infection. Watch out for signs of infections such as an oozing green discharge or red skin around the wound area. Call your doctor immediately.

7. Avoid Strenuous Activities

All physical activities should be limited in the first few weeks following a C-Section. Even after the sixth week or being fully recovered from the delivery, mothers are advised to refrain from overexertion.

8. Be Warned of Emotional Imbalance

Women are normally emotional after delivery because of hormonal changes. You must watch out if you become overly depressed and hopeless. This may be sign of emotional imbalance and may lead to postpartum depression.

9. Educate Yourself with Right Breastfeeding Techniques

There are different types of baby holding techniques for breastfeeding purpose. It is important to familiarize them and try it on your baby later on. The best advice is to be able to find which ones suit you and your baby the most.

10. Know When To Ring The Emergency Numbers

Secure your Obstetrician and Paediatrician’s numbers in case of emergency. Store them on your phone’s memory. Scribble them down on your notes or pin them on your fridge. You must call for help if you experience fever, flu, skin discoloration and difficulty breathing. Give your OB a ring if you notice green oozing discharges and red flashes on your wound area, smelly vagina, pain when urinating, abdominal pains, severe headache and chest pain.

Hello. If you don’t have any medical condition and if your diet is poor to begin with, it is even more important to make sure you have a healthy diet now. You need more vitamins and minerals, especially folic acid and iron. You need a few more calories during your pregnancy as well. Getting your diet right for pregnancy is more about what you eat than about how much. Limit junk food, as it has lots of calories with few or no nutrients. Eat a variety of foods from these different food groups each day: Milk and dairy products: skimmed milk, yogurt/curd, buttermilk (chhaach), cottage cheese (paneer). They contain calcium. Cereals, whole grains, dals, pulses and nuts: these are good sources of protein if you do not eat meat. Vegetarians need about 45 grams of nuts and 2/3 of a cup of legumes for protein each day. Vegetables and fruits: these provide vitamins, minerals and fibre. Avoid Papaya. Meat, fish and poultry: these provide concentrated proteins. Fluids: Drink lots of fluids, especially water and fresh fruit juices. Make sure you drink clean boiled or filtered water. Carry your own water when out of the house, or buy bottled water from a reputed brand. Avoid packaged juices as they have a very high sugar content. Fats and oils: Ghee, butter, coconut milk and oil are high in saturated fats, which are not very healthy. Hydrogenated vanaspati oil and ghee is high in trans fats, which are as bad for you as saturated fats. A better source of fat is vegetable oils because these contain more unsaturated fat. Foods to be avoided in normal pregnancy: Raw or partly cooked eggs, Raw or undercooked meat, Caffeine, Liver, Cold cured meats, Vitamin/fish oil supplements, papaya.

Hi if you have a plan for baby than you should not take krimson 35. Its oral contraceptive pill which you must stop before planning pregnancy. If you already have taken few pills than continue for this month, do not stop, otherwise your period wil come early. But do not take krimson 35 tablet from your next period. Thanks.

Hi, don't worry. Just wait and observe the discharge. If it subsides on its own nothing to be done. Sometimes ipill may cause menstrual irregularities. If you don't get your periods by 18th, then do blood test for pregnancy.

Hi. Please go for an ultrasound to see if there is pregnancy. Sometimes there can be mild bleeding on and off throughout pregnancy especially in relation to the position of the placenta. Best wishes.

7 Best Foods for Boosting Memory!

Memory is something which runs the world. Memory boosting techniques are most common among the children. All parents would want their children to have good memory. Adults also loose the capacity of remembering things when they are under stress.

Here are some of the foods which would help boosting the memory:

1. Cabbage: Cabbage head is not the insult as you may perceive. It is a good source of folic acid which helps boost memory.

2. Eggs: Eggs are the primary source of protein and are said to increase the memory. A good omelet on any day for breakfast is a good deal to improve your memory.

3. Broccoli: A little sister of cauliflower broccoli is a good source of protein again. Broccoli can be eaten in boiled state as a side or stir fried way as salad. Add some veggies to stir fried broccoli with salad dressing, you get fantastic salad which not only boosts the taste of your palette but also boosts your memory.

4. Strawberries: The favorite most of all, eating strawberries a day would surely improve your memories. Strawberries can be eaten in any way. Shake it up with little milk and chia seeds, you get a fantastic shake which has refreshing taste and goodness of strawberry.

5. Red Wine: Many people swear by this quality of red wine which would help them boost memory. It is said that wine which is older is the better for improving memory powers. Consuming wine with food is the best way to have it.

6. Salmon: Definitely not an option for vegans and vegetarians, salmon is considered to be the best source of protein and hence boosts memory power.

7. Almonds: Indians swear by almonds for their capacity to boost memory. Soaked and eaten as first thing in the morning peeled almonds are the best source of protein too.

Try hard to reduce weight. At the same time, regularize cycle by taking drugs. Don't try pregnancy before regularizing hormones and reducing weight. At the same time, have some basic fertility check up done for you and your husband.

I had sex with unknown person without condom. Now not in touch with the guy. Will I get sexually transmitted disease? Pls help.

You have made a mistake but there is no point in worrying now. It would be better to wait for a week and watch if any urinary symptoms or skin rashes develop. In case there is an unusual symptom, it is advisable to see a physician or skin specialist without delay.

I had sex with 2 girl without protection yesterday I had sex with my wife i am very scared can I diagnose with hiv or hiv western bolt what is that western bolt? How hiv occur how its effect on body? Shall I now sex with my wife in future?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
If the two girls are commercial sex workers, then you must be on guard. Unprotected sex with any unknown partner can be a high risk activity and may result in transmission of hiv infection. As per your saying, you had unprotected sex with 2 girls and also had sex with your wife, this act of yours is very irresponsible one. When a person comes in sexual contact with a hiv infected person, the hiv virus can enter the body. Hiv virus is intracellular virus, it needs a cell to multiply body immunity helps in fighting the hiv virus and can keep the virus destroyed, unless the virus has multiplied in vast quantities and has damaged the" protective" white blood cells. This takes time. If the infection is well controlled then the elisa will be negative. That a person is free from hiv, can be said with confidence only after 2 elisa tests 6 months apart, and both being negative. The earliest marker is hiv viral load. This is in the first weeks after infection (usually from 1 to 6 weeks after exposure). A high viral load is related to seroconversion symptoms. The first hiv protein (antigen) that can be measured is p24 (from 2 to 8 weeks after exposure). Viral load and p24 tests are not accurate for diagnosing early hiv if the results are negative. An hiv antibody response can be detected as early as two weeks in a few people and in more than 99.9% of people by 12 weeks. An antibody test at 4 weeks will detect 95% of infections. Antibody testing at 4 weeks can give you a good indication of your hiv status, but you need a test at 12-24 weeks after the exposure to be considered hiv negative. All this will matter if those 2 girls were hiv positive! if they are negative, there will not be any chances of you or your wife getting hiv also, it would be better to abstain from sex with your wife or anybody for the next 6 months or if that is not possible, then a condom with a spermicidal coating is the best option.
