\nIf the scar is completely healed I do not see a problem, but I don't think it will honestly help with it's appearance. As a general rule of thumb, ethanol should not be used of open sores/puncutres/cuts/scrapes and especially surgical incisions. It not only kills the bacteria, but also the...

To keep it simple and not get too technical, fraternal twins arefrom two eggs and two sperm that independently combine to produce ababy. Identical twins come from a single egg and sperm that divideto create two separate children. Gender is controlled by the malessperm and whether it contains the...
Call your obstetrician's office first, unless they provided otherparameters in advance. They will likely want to know what thetiming is between cramps and they will advise you about when tohead to the hospital. Labor doesn't always start with the water breaking. For me, laborlasted only 6 hours and...

There's really no way to tell. You can be slightly dilated for weeks before going into true labor. On the other hand, you might not be dilated at all and then go into labor closer to your due date. It's oddly not a very reliable way of telling when you'll deliver, until you are in active labor.
Women may start menstruating Seven to nine weeks after caesareanoperation.
The bleeding should lessen after the first few days but can continue about 6weeks. It will get lighter and lighter till it's just pinkish discharge.

OB-GYN, OB-GYNs are doctors who have completed four years oftraining in the field of obstetrics and gynecology.
Labor pain is felt in the abdomen ( think "cramps" while menstruating, lasting 30 sec. to 2 minutes, with intervals), as the uterus contracts. One can also have pain in the lower back region. Back labor can indicate that the baby's head has not yet turned into the best position for delivery.
I don't know about individual doctors, but the Johns Hopkins Hospital has a clinic that specializes in modifications of abnormal people - popularily called Freaks. This does not imply the prestigious University Hospital is some kind of Carnival Freak House!
No, they are not. The umbilical cord is an actual cord that connects the baby to the placenta. The placenta is the lining of the uterus that is developed over the course of the pregnancy. The placenta is a "filter" through which the baby's food and oxygen is delivered via the umbilical cord. Once...
Some say perineal massage is helpful, from 36 weeks onwards.. Slow delivery of the head etc is advised to prevent perineal rips, listen to your body and go slow and allow the head to emerge as god intended.. Epidural takers will not be able to be fully in control of the above and therefor should...

Actually, it's best to think about when is the best time to finish your classes! Aim for a class that finishes about a month before your due date. This allows you a few weeks in case you are early, but not too much time ahead that you will forget everything you have learnt! Most antenatal teachers...
Have sex, I have friends and family that swear by that approach.
First contractions start, then the frequency increases. Your water breaks, followed by the urge to push. This may last some time before the final process called "crowning" the the child's head has started to show through the birth canal.
They say 40 is full term because contraception which is like two weeks counts as part of your term. But in all actuality it is 38. Anything over is getting dangerous because your placenta stops producing the neccesities for the baby.
We just push when we feel it it is hard because you will be very tired and weak so we have to just try to relax and push

Ob-gyn. They are usually your regular obstetrician that you were seeing during pregnancy.
It can be, especially the first time when you have no idea what to expect. It helps to fully embrace the fact that your body knows exactly what to do. I had one hospital birth then a home birth. The home birth was the greatest experience of my life but I know it's not for everyone. Read a lot of...
Answer . I would say trust your doctor. He/she can not do anything that would harm either of you. If the doctor does you then have a malpractice suit.. It depends on his reasoning. Although the baby is considered full-term it is best to let them come when they are ready. Most doctors will wait...
You and if you want a person to hold your hand
that totally depends from person to person. Every birth and every pregnancy is different. Generally speaking though, if your waters break, your labour is a lot quicker but that is no guarantee either. I was 2 cm dilated for a month before my son was born and when my water did eventually break it...

Yes. The physical strain of childbirth causes pressure on the lower bowel, and flatulence is possible. In many cases the woman may also need to urinate and or excrete at some stage during the labour, after all this can be quite a long time period. When the baby's head is near delivery, it...
Hi there well speaking from experience - I have had 6 children and after my 6th the community midwife came around to my house after I left hospital about 1 1/2 weeks after delivery and did the normal checks on the baby and then checked to see if my uterus had gone right down - and when she pressed...
How long labor lasts really varies depending on so many factors. It really has not changed much over time.

Some advantages to using a nurse midwife are being at home andrelaxed and allowing the family to be involved. Of course the majordisadvantage, would be a problem that would arise and couldn'treally be managed by the nurse midwife.
A certified midwife is not a doctor, but a person who has undergone training and met educational requirements to care for a mom-to-be, and the newborn. There is a requirement for birth attendance and supervised deliveries. Then the certificate and independence.

Absolutely! If a baby is born at just 38 weeks, its considered full term. A baby born at 37 weeks should be just fine! From about 26 weeks can a baby survive. I have already seen a baby who was born at 25 weeks and who has survived.

The uterus contracts to help expell the baby. The cervix also dilates (opens) for the baby to pass through.
