Station Of Baby In Labor
Depends on GA: When you have in decreased fetal movement, the doctor will have to assess why and depending on the finding may deliver the baby or may set up "testing" weekly or twice weekly.

More MDs and RNs: Two babies requires twice the attention. Additional nurses are brought in to care for you and your babies. In addition, many times twins are born premature (varying degrees). Therefore, a larger pediatric team or neonatologist may be present. Anesthesia doctors will be around as well since twin deliveries have the potential to become a little more complicated and pain control is a major issue. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can having a bunch of braxton hicks contractions all through your 3rd trimester facilitate childbirth?
What are the risks of the mother if the Uterus tries to push out the baby at 5th month of pregnancy giving the mother unbearable mini labor pain.
Minimal : The risk to the mother is minimal most of the time. The risk to the fetus is significant at that gestational age. Prematurity and it's side effects is very serious. ...Read more
Baby movements: At 19 weeks it would be really hard to tell whether you are having truly decreased baby movements or just not feeling your baby move consistently. At 19 weeks even in women who had previous pregnancies, baby movements are not consistently present. I would not get discouraged but would advise you to talk to your obgyn. He may elect to do an ultrasound to assess your baby's wellbeing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Will happen: At 39 weeks you are getting close. There is no way to predict when but you are certainly in good shape to deliver soon. ...Read more
Antibiotic/pregnancy: Absolutely. And that list goes beyond antibiotics. For example, we do not give a mother certain antibiotics, such as sulfa drugs, as it can affect the fetus' development. Tetracycline is a no-no, as it can stain teeth and bones. Other medications also can do that, and this is why medications are classified under different pregnancy categories, from a to d, and x. "a" being safe to "x" being no. ...Read more
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
Hard to say: If you have a marginal previa, only slightly crossing the birth canal, it may move out of the way, but would likely still tear and cause life threatening bleeding.A complete previa is unlikely to move. I would prepare for a c-section delivery at the first sign of any labor. Stay in close contact with your treatment team and have a plan in place. ...Read more
Will light aerobics/light cardio jogging in place with a baby in baby carrier cause shaken baby syndrome?
Pros/cons of c-section vs. assisted vaginal delivery? Baby persistently locked in posterior position, estimated 8lbs+.
Depends: That is a decision that would need to be made in the moment. Many women can deliver vaginally with no problem from the occiput posterior position. If the baby can not be delivered with pushing then options of forceps, vacuum and c section should be considered. The size of the baby, the shape of the pelvis, the position of head and the experience of the doctor are all important considerations ...Read more
It depends: Placental abruption is a condition in which the placenta peels away from the inner wall of the uterus prior to the baby's delivery. When this happens, the baby (and mother) can suffer from excessive blood loss. Additionally, the baby loses its ability to get oxygen. The baby's survival depends on how quickly he can be delivered after abruption occurs. ...Read more
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
