It’s important to take care of your baby, even before he or she is born. You can do this by living a healthy lifestyle and keeping doctor’s appointments while you’re pregnant. This is called prenatal care. You’re more likely to have a healthy birth if you maintain a healthy pregnancy.

After your first visit, you will have a prenatal visit every 4 weeks. In months 7 and 8, you will have a visit every 2 weeks. In your last month of pregnancy, the visits will occur weekly until you deliver your baby. At each visit, the doctor will check your weight and blood pressure and test your urine. The doctor will listen to your baby’s heartbeat and measure the height of your uterus after the 20th week. You should always discuss any issues or concerns you have with your doctor.

Breast Feeding : benefits both baby and mom

BREAST MILK IS THE BEST MILK . The best time to start breastfeed is immediately after the delivery, if possible before the umbilical cord is cut . Breastfeeding has health benefits for both babies and mothers. Breast milk provides a baby with ideal nutrition and supports growth and development. Breastfeeding can also help protect baby and mom against certain illnesses and diseases. Breast milk is the best source of nutrition for most babies. It is a balanced diet for the baby . As the baby grows, the mother’s breast milk will change to meet her baby’s nutritional needs.

Breastfeeding can help protect babies against some short- and long-term illnesses and diseases. Breastfed babies have a lower risk of asthma, obesity, type 1 diabetes, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). They have fewer ear infections, especially those that damage hearing , fewer episodes of bacterial meningitis. They have better vision and less retinopathy of prematurity . They have lesser incidence of diarrhea, constipation, gastroenteritis, gastroesophageal reflux, and preterm necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). Fewer colds and respiratory illnesses like pneumonia, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and whooping cough are seen . Breast milk shares antibodies from the mother with her baby. These antibodies help babies develop a strong immune system and protect them from illnesses.

Breastfeeding has health benefits for the mother too! Breastfeeding can reduce the mother’s risk of breast and ovarian cancer, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure. Promotes faster weight loss after birth, burning about 500 extra calories a day to build and maintain a milk supply. Stimulates the uterus to contract and return to normal size; also results in less postpartum bleeding. Breast feeding moms have fewer urinary tract infections, less chance of anemia, less risk of postpartum depression and more positive mood. Breast feeding moms have lesser incidence of osteoporosis during their post menopausal years. Good for emotional status of the mother. Breastfeeding produces the naturally soothing hormones oxytocin and prolactin that promote stress reduction and positive feelings in the nursing mother. It instills increased confidence and self-esteem, increased calmness.

Breastfed babies cry less overall, and have fewer incidences of childhood illness. Breastfeeding can support the wellness of body, mind, and spirit for the whole family. Breastfeeding makes travel easier. Breast milk is always clean and the right temperature. Physical/emotional bonding between mother and child is increased. Breastfeeding promotes more skin-to-skin contact, more holding and stroking. Many feel that affectionate bonding during the first years of life help reduce social and behavioral problems in both children and adults. Breastfeeding mothers learn to read their infant’s cues and babies learn to trust caregivers. This helps shape the infant’s early behavior.
