Delivery by cesarean section is one of the predisposing factors of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome, why? And how?

Delivery by cesarean section is one of the predisposing factors of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome, why? And how?

??RDS??: I would agree more cs babies have respiratory pbs than regular delivery but the issue is ttn ( transient tachypnea of the newborn) not rds.A trip down the birth canal helps squeeze some of the lung fluid out before birth, which does not happen for cs. About 10% of cs will have to work hard to clear that fluid & may require o2 & special care in the process.It usually clears in < 48hr. ...Read more

What kind of incision for delivery of singleton in transverse lie with anterior placenta previa? Will low transverse cut risk hemorrhage/uterine tear?

What kind of incision for delivery of singleton in transverse lie with anterior placenta previa? Will low transverse cut risk hemorrhage/uterine tear?

Hyst'omy MANDATED: hello Annie-_777 I am not an OB GYN but I have had a lot of experience which tells me that a lower abdominal incision (Pfannen-Stiel) is a better incision in almost all situations. This situation of a transverse lie and an anterior placenta praevia is a very hazardous situation because you need the baby out and the cord clamped within seconds of opening the uterus so choose a very skilled surgeon. ...Read more

What are the risks of vaginal vault prolapse during pregnancy? 27w pregnant breech baby

Not a problem: Vaginal vault prolapse in pregnancy is not harmful, but can be uncomfortable. Ask your ob/gyn md to place a pessary into your vagina to lift up the cervix and reduce the prolapse problem until after delivery. ...Read more

Describe the features of a breech delivery and its complications.?

Breech delivery: Basically means delivering first the baby butt then the head. It is very risky because head can get trapped inside the uterus and also hypoxic episodes are more prone in this case of delivery. Head is the largest part of the baby so maternal pelvis may not accomodate the head. Today in civilised world no one delivers breech unless the baby butt is out and you can't do a cesarean. ...Read more

What causes breech and malpresentation of baby in the womb, while having fibroadenomas on the breast?

What causes breech and malpresentation of baby in the womb, while having fibroadenomas on the breast?

Breech: Breast fibroid enigmas having nothing to do with your baby's position. Most breech or malpositioned babies are there just by chance. Occasionally an abnormal shape of the inside of the uterus will make breech more common. Also, fibroid tumors in the uterus can alter the shape of the uterine cavity making breech/malpositioned more likely. About 3% of babies will be breech at delivery. ...Read more

Pregnant with triplet.Have history of preterm labor 29 weeks (twins) due to rupture membrane.Is it important to do cervical cerclage? (cervix is fine)

Pregnant with triplet.Have history of preterm labor 29 weeks (twins) due to rupture membrane.Is it important to do cervical cerclage? (cervix is fine)

Hmmmm. : Let's see. You had preterm labor at 29 weeks with twins and are pregnant with triplets? I'd go for cerclage given the risk of an incompetent cervix is present with 3 babies. I'm guessing you see a perinatologist? If that's what she/he is recommending, i'd sign up for it. Good luck. ...Read more

Could low amniotic fluid in utero cause problems for the baby after delivery?

Could low amniotic fluid in utero cause problems for the baby after delivery?

Depends on cause: Babies don't need kidneys much during pregnancy because the placenta does that job.They do make pee that ends up as amniotic fluid. The right amount of fluid creates extra volume in the womb that pushes back against the muscular womb & allows the lungs to develop.(important) Things that stop or limit fluid formation includes absent kidneys or blockage in the outflow. Such defects can be a problem ...Read more

Im 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?

Yes there is!: As the uterus grows your placenta may migrate up, and the baby may turn to the vertex (head down) position. There is no guarantee. You need to be watched closely. If previa still exists and/or baby is still breech at term, you'll need a c section. Avoid intercourse or anything else in the vagina while you have a previa. This could cause severe bleeding. Be seen for any bleeding. Good luck. ...Read more

What are the complications of placenta previa? What risks go along with placenta previa? How serious is the condition?

.

Bleeding risk.: Placenta previa means that the birth canal is blocked by the afterbirth. This can cause severe vaginal bleeding that can threaten the maternal and fetal life. It carries a risk of placenta accreta and hysterectomy with it and must be managed in a large hospital with a blood bank and perinatal anesthesiology round the clock. It is a serious pregnancy complication! seek mfm care. ...Read more

Umbilical cord prolapse caused a 30 second lack of oxygen to the baby during delivery. Will the baby be okay?

Umbilical cord prolapse caused a 30 second lack of oxygen to the baby during delivery. Will the baby be okay?

Only 30 ???: I am reluctant to accept the initial statement as realistic. Once a cord begins to prolapse it can produce an intermittent but complete obstruction to blood flow that may add up to a significant o2 deficit over time.I'm not sure anyone can estimate the insult accurately.If only 30, probably no long term effect. If low 1/5/10 min apgars and seizures in the 1st 24hr,it was longer and more problemat ...Read more

Last ultrasound 33 weeks show cepheric presentation and placenta anterior uper as there any posibilty to move plecenta or the baby change postion?

Last ultrasound 33 weeks show cepheric presentation and placenta anterior uper as there any posibilty to move plecenta or the baby change postion?

Baby moving: At 33 weeks, the placenta isn't likely to move any more, it will stay anterior upper. By 33 weeks, the baby has probably settled in for the term BUT if you've given birth before, there in an increased chance that the baby can still shift around to transverse or breech. This is much less common if it's your first. ...Read more
