It’s flu season… Time to get that flu shot. If you are pregnant, then this means you especially!!! Pregnant women are at much greater risk when contracting the flu. Don’t be nervous it will only pinch for a second to spare two weeks of misery. Plus, the flu shot might even help protect your baby from the flu once he or she makes their arrival. So stop off at the neighborhood drug store and get that flu shot today.
Check out It’s a Kids World and find out how you can help kids grow and learn.
Congratulations to Dr. Fagbohun for delivering the first set of triplets at Oakbend Medical Center! Mom and babies are doing great.
What is round ligament pain?
During pregnancy, there are several “discomforts” that are a normal part of the body’s changes. One of the most commonly experienced is round ligament pain. It sounds innocent enough, until you have the sudden, sharp, and stabbing pain that stops you dead in your tracks. The round ligament is the ligament that anchors your uterus to the pelvis. Around the start of your second trimester, the uterus begins to grow out of the pelvis. At this time, any sudden twisting or turning (i.e. rolling out of bed) can cause this ligament to be stretched leading to pain.
When is flu season?
Flu season begins on average in October and lasts until spring, typically ending in March.
Why should I get the flu shot if I’m pregnant?
Flu is more likely to cause severe illness in pregnant women than in women who are not pregnant. Changes in the immune system, heart, and lungs during pregnancy make pregnant women more prone to severe illness from flu as well as hospitalizations and even death. Pregnant woman with flu also have a greater chance for serious problems for their unborn baby, including premature labor and delivery.
HOW DOES BREASTFEEDING BENEFIT MY BABY?
- Breast milk provides the perfect mix of vitamins, protein, and fat that your baby needs to grow.
- The colostrum that your breasts make during the first few days after childbirth helps your newborn’s digestive system grow and function.
- Breast milk has antibodies that help your baby’s immune system fight off viruses and bacteria.
- Breast milk is easier to digest than formula.
- Breastfeeding decreases the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
- If your baby is born preterm, breast milk can help reduce the fetal risks associated with preterm labor and delivery.
- Research shows that breastfed babies have higher IQ scores, as well as better brain and nervous system development.
