Gestational Diabetes and Treatment Options

Gestational diabetes, which occurs during pregnancy, is marked by high blood sugar levels that might be due to hormone changes, and insulin resistance. In fact, moms with this type of diabetes may need up to three times as much insulin during pregnancy than before or after.

Women who develop gestational diabetes are likely to face the same issue with future pregnancies. These women also tend to develop type 2 diabetes later in life— the link may be explained by the similar risk factors for both type 2 and gestational diabetes.

Being more than 20 percent overweight increases the risk of diabetes. Losing weight can help avoid diabetes altogether, though pregnant women should not attempt to lose weight unless under the direction of a health care professional.

Fear of Childbirth and Elective Cesarean

Why Women Choose Cesarean?

Cesarean birth is a major abdominal surgery with or without medical condition. Elective cesarean is the choice of the mother/couple to have their baby at specific date and time of delivery. This question has disturbed me for quite some times. I realised that people choose delivery through cesarean have lots of Fear. These fears are due to fear of childbirth pain, fear of not being able to give birth due to carrying a “big size baby”, fear of the unknown-uncertainly of how birth will turn out to be, the fear of jeopardising the safety of the baby and that of the mother puts woman to think of a definitely outcome. i.e. elective cesarean birth.  There are other fears that are not mentioned here which not everyone can accept.

Milli Hill, the Founder of The Positive Birth Movement, in her post Should We Be So Very Scared of Giving Birth? is based on research finding that as many as one in 10 women suffered from tocophobia, leading to more women elect for cesarean birth due to extreme anxiety and fear of giving birth regardless of how joyful her pregnancy had been.

Top 6 Reasons Why you need Preconception Cleansing/Detoxification

Getting pregnant can be exciting, for some women it can be a distress. Often getting pregnant is just so natural that it did not occur to most people that preconception cleansing is essential. Neither nor they know that pregnancy is actually a process of detoxification. Here are 6 reasons why you need to know about preconception health and why our body needs preconception cleansing.

1. Pregnancy is a process of detoxification

Have you wonder why women must past first trimester to be confirmed that her pregnancy continues? When a woman found out she is pregnant, she may experience sign of morning sickness as early as 6th weeks in her pregnancy. Morning sickness such as vomiting and nausea are signs of natural physiological changes enabling the removal of toxin from the woman’s body commonly occur during the first trimester. Detoxification takes place more intensely during this period so that the womb can provide a safer place to nurture the little life.

The body is intelligent. It does what is necessary to protect both the expectant mum and the baby.Should the woman’s health is deem not fit to nurture this baby, pregnancy will be terminated, miscarriage occurs. If pregnancy happen to continue despite a poor nurturing environment, baby’s development may be compromised. Healthy couples give birth to healthy baby. Preeclampsia happens to women with underlying health condition. Wonder why some women experience swollen feet, excess protein in their urine and high blood pressure during pregnancy, others done?

2. Possibly to Prevent Birth Defects

Birth Defects are broadly defined as functional and metabolic disorders that although present but may not necessarily recognisable at birth. Birth defects cause physical and mental disability. Birth defects severely impact the quality of life of the children and their mobility some can be fatal. The causes of birth defects may be due to genetic when one or more genes do not work properly or a part of the genes is missing.
