Your sister has to take thyroid medicine throughout pregnancy and after delivery also. Please follow the doctors advice and during pregnancy thyroid test will be repeated few times and dosage adjusted. After delivery depending on the TSH value doctor will advice whether to stop and when to stop. The important thing she should continue the medicine during pregnancy and should not stop without doctors advice.

Prenatal, Antenatal And Postnatal Care - An Intro!

Prenatal, Antenatal And Postnatal Care - An Intro!

There are three stages of caring for an expecting mother: prenatal, intranatal, postnatal care. This is essential to ensure smooth pregnancy and labour and to keep the mother healthy after giving birth. This care is a combined effort between the doctor and the expectant couple. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you are expecting an addition to your family.

Prenatal care from the moment you realize that you are pregnant, a woman must start taking extra care of her body. This reduces the risks in your pregnancy and at the time of labour. But even before planning a pregnancy, it is important that couples should consult with the doctor, in order to avoid any complications in future. Thus you should ensure that regular check up not just during the pregnancy, but also before the pregnancy is equally important, so that your doctor can rule out complications arising due to factors, such as Thalassemia, Thyroid, Blood Sugar and PCOS, etc.

The main objectives of prenatal care are:

  1. To maintain the health of the mother
  2. Detect high risk cases
  3. Foresee complications and find ways to prevent them
  4. Reduce anxiety associated with delivery

Thus, an important part of prenatal care is to visit your gynaecologist regularly. These visits will be scheduled according to your age and stage of pregnancy. A few other points to keep in mind are:

  1. Stop smoking and stay away from passive smoking as well
  2. Stop drinking alcohol
  3. Take folic acid supplements and multivitamins
  4. Avoid contact with toxic chemicals like insecticides etc.
  5. Ensure your vaccination is up to date
  6. Avoid X-rays
  7. Do not start or stop any medication without informing your doctor first
  8. Eat healthy food and drink plenty of water
  9. Exercise regularly for half an hour daily
  10. Get plenty of rest
  11. Avoid stress
  12. Educate yourself about childbirth

Intranatal care refers to care given to the mother and baby at the time of delivery. The main objectives here are:

  1. Cleanliness
  2. Smooth delivery without injuring mother or baby
  3. Preventing complications
  4. Delivery resuscitation for the baby

There are a number of ways to deliver a baby and whatever you choose, you must ensure the presence of a doctor at your side, while delivering a baby. Your doctor will determine the position of the fetus and help you through your delivery.

Postnatal care is essential for 6-8 weeks after the baby is born. During this period, the mother goes through a number of physical and emotional changes and thus requires rest, nutrition and vaginal care. The main objectives here are:

  1. Prevent postpartum complications
  2. Restore mother to optimal health
  3. Ensure problem free breastfeeding

Sharing responsibility is essential for the health of the mother, after delivery. Get as much sleep as possible and pay attention to what you eat. Do not try and lose your pregnancy weight instantly. Schedule a checkup with your doctor six weeks after delivery to ensure your vagina has healed properly. Additionally abstain from intercourse at this time. With proper care, every stage of your pregnancy can be a beautiful experience.

Hello, gestational diabetes during pregnancy is common in south india more than in north india and makes her pregnancy a high risk pregnancy. She has to maintain a diabetic diet and keep her sugar levels in control from first trimester itself. Please visit your obstetrician for a detailed opinion as there are set protocols to manage such cases.

Placenta anterior is again normal to have but the only concern is if there is a c-section then doctor may have to go through th placenta to reach the baby and there can be excess blood loss. This may also cause difficult / obstructed labour sometimes. Regards.

Hi. As you have taken the pill within 24 hrs it's very unlikely that she would get pregnant as it's success rate is around 98-99%.
