Induced Labor

 

If your labor doesn’t begin on its own, many times your practitioner will use medication and various other techniques to induce contractions.

Tuesday Thoughts ~ Delayed Cord Clamping

cordclamping

 

There has been an increasing number of studies published with regards to the timing of cord clamping, including a 16-month study which was published in 2006. It was conducted at Hospital de Gineco Obstetrica in Mexico City, where over 350 mother/baby pairs were part of the study.

This study, consistently with many others, has provided solid evidence of the benefits of delayed clamping. The main benefits being:

Increased levels of iron

Lower risk of anaemia

Fewer transfusions, and

Fewer incidences of intraventricular hemorrhage.

MonthlyCollage

 

Have you, or are you planning to, do a monthly photograph and milestone update with your little love until his or her first birthday?

I adore the idea of using props in the photograph, like the balloons above, to make things fun and unique!

Will you only do updates for a year, or will you continue long after that 1st birthday? Share with us! 🙂
