Proper Care in Preparation for a Safe Delivery

Motherhood perhaps is one of the greatest gifts to all the women out there. It is the source of a new life. It is the start of the new hope that we wish could make a difference in this world that we live in today. However, it does not always come expectedly. There are times when it even comes to those who have not even prepared for such a situation yet, like those companies that claim we buy houses fast Texas. As such, there are times that the need for proper care is overlooked, giving way to a dangerous delivery.  


When it comes to pregnancy, the actual delivery should not be your immediate concern. What you should be prepared for is strengthening your health and the health of your unborn so that you are can have a good chance of successfully delivering your baby. There are many ways to do this and we have set some tips below: 


Eat the Right Nutrition. This is already a given fact even if you are not pregnant but just in case you are, you need to be in the top of your game in providing the right nutrition for you and your child. Remember, you are not anymore eating for one. It doesn’t mean that you have to binge eat, but nonetheless, you need to get into a healthy diet that will not just strengthen your mind but your body as well. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Drink milk because this will help your bones get stronger all throughout the pregnancy. 


Undergo Regular Check-Ups. Especially if you are a first-time mother, you need to have a doctor constantly at your beck and call. Your pregnancy may not as easy and as less dangerous as others so you need to have yourself constantly checked. By going to your gynecologist on a regular basis, you will lessen the possibilities of complications and problems that may occur on your pregnancy. 


See A Therapists. During a pregnancy, you may suffer from intense emotions that sometimes would render you depressed and dull of negative thoughts. During this case, you may want to see a therapist to help you go through this phase. This is especially needed for those who are going through an unwanted pregnancy. You should be able to reconcile your expectations especially after the child is born. First-time mothers are prone to postpartum depression. You can help prevent this by seeing a specialist.  


Do Some Exercises. Contrary to what many people think, doing some minor exercises won’t endanger your baby. In fact, this would even keep you in optimal condition for the delivery. Check out with your doctors regarding the extent of the exercises you can do. Follow these steps and you are good to go. 


Take Vitamins. Your doctors will give you medical prescriptions which include the right vitamins for you. This will help keep away unwanted illnesses and will keep your health in a good condition.  


Pregnancy is one of the best things that could happen to a woman. By taking care of your health, you are ensuring that not only you are healthy but your baby as well.

Importance of Midwives

In a world where the advancement of technology is something to be proud off – digital marketing, mobile banking, robotics, and technological breakthroughs – it is a debilitating to know that there is still a high rate of mortality existing to some countries pertaining to child birth. Among the reasons for these are the lack of access to pre-natal and post-natal care for mothers, and the insufficient number of midwives to countries which need it the most. If there are even midwives in existent, they do often do not have enough experience and knowledge to follow through with a successful child delivery. This often results to now only to problems on the newborn child, but the mother as well. This problem could lead to something as fatal as death.

Sad to hear, but nonetheless true.

Midwife International, to address this problem, came up with a solution – to partner with establishes clinics and professional midwives to be able to create more midwives equipped in handling this type of problems competently. Such partnership created opportunities to midwives out there to gain more knowledge via a 3-year course program provided by several accredited schools. And this is just the start, because as we go through the process of ensuring that there will be more than enough midwives available during childbirth, we also wanted them to have access in modern facilities, and technology that would make their jobs easier. Everything is kept in proper condition. We only hire the best technicians from keeping the AC system in service to regular garage door repair in Las Vegas.

“Woman is the first environment. In pregnancy our bodies sustain life. At the breast of women, the generations are nourished. From the bodies of women flows the relationship of those generations both to society and the natural world. In this way the earth is our mother, the old people said in this way we as women are earth.”

— Katsi Cook, Mohawk Midwife

The Need

Thriving mothers create thriving children, and ultimately, a thriving world. Yet nearly 800 women die every day from pregnancy and birth related causes, causing community trauma and adversely impacting the nutrition, education, and overall well-being of families. Further, ten million infants and children die each year before their fifth birthday; 99% of these deaths occur in developing nations. Infant mortality takes away society’s potential physical, social, and human capital.
