I delivared 2 babies through c sec in 2 years gap.both the c sections are done in same place(abdomen).why both will be done in same place?

Read on please: It is the decision of the OB usually, to minimize scarring, as long as you have healed well. The C/S site is pretty standard on the abdominal wall and uterine wall. Scar tissue can affect healing. Do ask your doctor for further clarification. I am just giving you a general answer and guide. Good luck and stay well. ...Read more

College Fund: Save the money for your college fund! There is no evidence to suggest that these things work to improve colicky behavior.

My babies umbilical cord fell off today(baby is 1 Week Old). Do I put anything on it to help it heal faster?? The belly button is also outie.

My babies umbilical cord fell off today(baby is 1 Week Old). Do I put anything on it to help it heal faster?? The belly button is also outie.

Not necessarily: The umbilical stump is made to fall off - after it does there is often very little needed to facilitate it completing its healing. You can use a small drop of liquid soap (not antibacterial) to aid in the remainder drying out - but if you do nothing it will likely be just fine! If it is not healed by the 2 week visit - your provider will take care of the rest. ...Read more

What does white spot in babies stomach mean during 20 weeks ultrasound.?

Usually nothing.: Echogenic material in the fetal stomach is sometimes seen in prenatal ultrasound, but is usually of no clinical significance. This may be swallowed vernix caseosa, desquamed epithelial clumps, or metabolic products of subchorionic blood after a hemorrhagic episode. In the latter case, the fetal gastric debris is still not a problem in and of itself, rather a marker of a previously existing problem. ...Read more
