Pregnancy Care

Homeopath, Chennai
Pregnancy Care

Pregnancy care

Getting good care before, during, and after your pregnancy can help your baby grow and develop and keep you both healthy. It is the best way to be sure your little one gets a head start on a healthy life.

Prenatal care

Good prenatal care includes good nutrition and health habits before and during pregnancy. Ideally, you should talk with your health care provider before you start trying to become pregnant. Here are some things you will need to do:

Choose a provider: you will want to choose a provider for your pregnancy and childbirth. This provider will provide prenatal care, delivery, and postpartum services.

Take folic acid: if you are considering becoming pregnant, or are pregnant, you should take a supplement with at least 400 micrograms of folic acid every day. Taking folic acid will decrease the risk of certain birth defects.

You should also:

Talk with your provider about any medicines you take. This includes over-the-counter medicines. You should only take medicines your provider says are safe to take while you are pregnant.

Avoid all alcohol and drug use and limit caffeine.

Quit smoking, if you smoke.


Go for prenatal visits and tests: you will see your provider many times during your pregnancy for prenatal care. The number of visits and types of exams you receive will change, depending on where you are in your pregnancy:

    First trimester care
    Second trimester care
    Third trimester care

Talk with your provider about the different tests you may receive during your pregnancy. These tests can help your provider see how your baby is developing and if there are any problems with your pregnancy. These tests may include:

    Ultrasound tests to see how your baby is growing and help establish a due date
    Glucose tests to check for gestational diabetes
    Fetal echocardiography to check the baby's heart
    Amniocentesis to check for birth defects and genetic problems
    Nuchal translucency test to check for problems with the baby's genes
    Tests to check for sexually transmitted disease
    Blood type testing such as rh and abo


Depending on your family history, you may choose to screen for genetic problems. There are many things to think about before doing genetic testing. Your provider can help you decide if this is right for you.

If you have a high-risk pregnancy, you may need to see your provider more often and have additional tests.

What to expect during pregnancy

Your provider will talk with you about how to manage common pregnancy complaints such as:

    Morning sickness
    Backaches, leg pain, and other aches and pains during pregnancy
    Problems sleeping
    Skin and hair changes
    Vaginal bleeding in early pregnancy


No 2 pregnancies are the same. Some women have few or mild symptoms during pregnancy. Many women work their full term and travelwhile they are pregnant. Others may have to cut back on their hours or stop working. Some women require bed rest for a few days or possibly weeks to continue with a healthy pregnancy.

Possible pregnancy complications

Pregnancy is a complex process. While many women have normal pregnancies, complications can occur. However, having a complication does not mean you will not have a healthy baby. It means your provider will monitor you closely and take special care of you and your baby during the remainder of your term.

Common complications include:


    Diabetes during pregnancy (gestational diabetes).
    High blood pressure during pregnancy (preeclampsia). Your provider will talk with you about how to care for yourself if you have preeclampsia.
    Premature or preterm changes in the cervix.
    Problems with the placenta. It may cover the cervix, pull away from the womb, or not work as well as it should.
    Vaginal bleeding.
    Early labor.
    Your baby is not growing well.
    Your baby has medical problems.


It can be scary to think about possible problems. But it is important to be aware so you can tell your provider if you notice unusual symptoms.

Labor and delivery

Talk with your provider about what to expect during labor and delivery. You can make your wishes known by creating a birth plan. Talk with your provider about what to include in your birth plan. You may want to include things like:


    How you want to manage pain during labor, including whether to have an epidural block
    How you feel about episiotomy
    What would happen if you need a c-section
    How you feel about forceps delivery or vacuum-assisted delivery
    Who you want with you during delivery


It is also a good idea to make a list of things to bring to the hospital. Pack a bag ahead of time so you have it ready to go when you go into labor.

As you get close to your due date, you will notice certain changes. It is not always easy to tell when you will go into labor. Your provider can tell you when it is time to come in for an exam or go to the hospital for delivery.

Talk with your provider about what happens if you pass your due date. Depending on your age and risk factors, your provider may need to induce labor around 39 to 42 weeks.

Once labor begins, you can use a number of strategies to get through labor.

What to expect after your child is born

Having a baby is an exciting and wonderful event. It is also hard work for the mother. You will need to take care of yourself in the first few weeks after delivery. The type of care you need depends on how you delivered your baby.

If you had a vaginal delivery, you will likely spend 1 to 2 days in the hospital before you go home.

If you had a c-section, you will stay in the hospital for 2 to 3 days before going home. Your provider will explain how to care for yourself at home as you heal.

If you are able to breastfeed, there are many benefits to breastfeeding. It can also help you lose your pregnancy weight.

Be patient with yourself as you learn to breastfeed. It can take 2 to 3 weeks to get the hang of it. There is a lot to learn, such as:


    How to care for your breasts
    Positioning your baby for breastfeeding
    How to overcome any breastfeeding problems
    Breast milk pumping and storage
    Breastfeeding skin and nipple changes
    Timing of breastfeeding


If you need help, there are many resources for new moms.

When to call your health care provider

Call your provider if you are pregnant or think you are pregnant and:


    You take medicines for diabetes, thyroid disease, seizures, or high blood pressure
    You are not getting prenatal care
    You cannot manage common pregnancy complaints without medicines
    You might have been exposed to a sexually transmitted infection, chemicals, radiation, or unusual pollutants


Call your provider immediately if you are pregnant and you:


    Have a fever, chills, or painful urination
    Vaginal bleeding
    Severe belly pain
    Physical or severe emotional trauma
    Have your water break (membranes rupture)
    Are in the last half of your pregnancy and notice the baby is moving less or not at all.

I am suffering from polycystic ovaries syndrome for the last 8 years. I have consulted many doctors too. Now I have child of 3 years and I also had 3 abortions. I am vex of this. I want to know is there any home treatment or diet plan for pcos instead of regular allopathic treatment? Please let me know.

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Yes pcos can be managed with lifestyle and dietary measures. Regular exercise, a healthy diet, weight control, and not smoking are all important parts of treatment for polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos). You may also take medicine to balance your hormones. Healthy lifestyle: if you are overweight, weight loss is the treatment you need. A small amount of weight loss is likely to help balance your hormones and start up your menstrual cycle and ovulation. Eat a balanced diet that includes lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. Get regular exercise to help you control or lose weight and feel better. If you smoke, consider quitting.

I've had vaginal itching for around two years now, as with most posts I've read I've been told it's just thrush but then I've been tested for that twice now and both tests came back negative. The GUM clinic said it could just be an allergy or thrush of the vulva (if that is even possible?). I have.

Apply candidb cream twice a day and keep your private parts absolutely clean and dry vaginal infections can come again and again you have to treat them every time.

Breast milk is the most important and best nutrition you can give to your baby. Breast milk secretion and excretion is controlled by a complex neuro hormonal mechanism. A relaxed and confident brain is all that you need for adequate milk production. During hot summer months take a glass of water before feeding and have a balanced and nutritious diet. If your baby is passing urine regularly and gaining weight then he or she must be getting enough milk.

That tablets never cause delayed period. Period may be delayed due to pregnancy or other reasons (hormonal problems, problems in thyroid, uterus etc). So, first get urine pregnancy test done and then consult doctor.

Govardhan Puja - How Cow Dung is Beneficial for Your Health?

BAMS, MD Ayurveda
Sexologist, Lonavala
Govardhan Puja - How Cow Dung is Beneficial for Your Health?

The fourth day of Diwali is celebrated as Annakut to thank God for his benevolence. Govardhan Puja is one of the primary rituals associated with this day. The legend behind this festival is centred around a hillock named Govardhan which Krishna lifted to shelter the people living there from torrential rains. Thus, it is celebrated by making small mounds of cow dung that symbolize the hillock and prayers to Lord Govardhan.  Cow dung in India is not treated as mere excrement, but has a number of uses. Primary amongst them is the burning of dried cow dung cakes as fuel to cook food in rural households and provide heat. Cow dung is also an excellent fertilizer. In many places, cow dung is also added to mud bricks so as to strengthen the brick and prevent disintegration. 
  
According to Ayurveda, cow dung is germicidal and has healing properties. To this effect, cow dung is mentioned a number of times in ancient Indian scriptures. 
1. Cow dung’s antibacterial properties make it a good natural disinfectant. Using cow dung to disinfect an area involves coating the floor with a paste of fresh cow dung. This practice is followed in many rural households throughout India. Burning cakes of dried cow dung are also said to repel insects and mosquitoes. 
2. Cow dung is also said to have mood enhancing properties. It contains bacteria named Mycobacterium vaccae which is responsible for activating neurons that produce serotonin. Seratonin is a neurotransmitter that contributes towards making a person feel happy. 
3. Dried cow dung is also used to make disinfectant soaps. Some of the ayurvedic practitioners also use cow dung to treat skin ailments. However, you must keep in mind that cow dung does contain bacteria and hence should not be applied on skin that is cut or raw. 
4. Even the ash produced by cow dung has beneficial uses. This ash when added to pond water is also said to balance the acidity in the water and regulate pH levels. Dry ash absorbs oil and fat and hence is also used as a cleaning agent. 

Here are some other medicinal uses of cow dung: 
1. According to some ancient scripts, cow dung ash can be used to strengthen gums and clean teeth. 
2. Cow dung is an excellent disinfectant and mosquito repellent. This is the reason why the walls of the houses were coated with cow dung in the ancient times. 
3. The cow dung can be used a body back in order to detoxify the body. 
4. It is also said to be very helpful in preventing pimples. 
5. Cow dung is also known to improve blood circulation. 
6. It also helps in keeping the infections from spreading. 
7. Ayurvedic medicines made out of cow dung also work wonders in treating indigestion problems. 

However, if one chooses to use cow dung to treat an ailment or cleanse the body in any way, it should be done only under the supervision of an Ayurvedic doctor.
