I have twins and want to have full anesthesia delivery.Will it be harmful for babies in any way?

Possibly: The risks to the mother are increased (doubled) with a general anesthetic. Most anesthesiologists will strongly suggest that you have a regional anesthetic for your operation. The risk to your children is that they will be exposed to more chemicals, as well as the increased risk to yourself will affect them. Good luck. ...Read more

If a patient wanted to be induced early to avoid a difficult delivery of a large infant, how unusual will it be to induce at less than 36 weeks?

If a patient wanted to be induced early to avoid a difficult delivery of a large infant, how unusual will it be to induce at less than 36 weeks?

Extremely: No doctor should consider this based on current guidelines. You should be evaluated for causes of a large infant. Elective delivery should not be performed prior to 39 weeks. Estimated size is not an appropriate indication for early delivery due to the inaccuracy inherent in estimating fetal weight. Size may be considered when deciding the route of delivery. ...Read more

Late 30s. Can i somehow avoid C-section for this and the 2 next pregnancies i'm hoping for? Really want to labor & have vaginal delivery for my babies

VBAC: If you've never had a c-section, then unless there is trouble during delivery then vaginal birth should be expected. If you've had a previous c-section then there is controversy about following deliveries and the safety of a vaginal birth. Many obs will default for repeat c-sections because the risk of uterine rupture and other serious complications are high in subsequent pregnancies. ...Read more

Are simple finger foods safe for nine to twelve month old babies?

Are simple finger foods safe for nine to twelve month old babies?

Yes: Try to avoid foods that often trigger allergies in babies. Egg whites and chocolate should be avoided until after one year. Orange juice, tomatoes, peanut butter and strawberries are often hard on babies. This is also a good time to begin massaging babies gums with a soft cloth so a toothbrush will be accepted later. I will do a blood check for anemia. ...Read more
