Hello I was wondering .
Is it safe to wear scented panty liners?
I have a holiday booked for the 5th of May this year to which I'll be 2 months pregnant, it's agadir in morrocco, is it safe to travel here?
Many thanks Tiffany
Yes: Scented panty liners are safe but they do irritate the skin of a lot of women. The safety of Morrocco on the other hand is open to question for all travelers in the current political enviroment. The usual travel precautions about food and water still apply and u need to check with your doctor about vaccinations or prophylaxis against malaria, etc. Some of those may b contraindicated in pregnancy. ...Read more

My baby girl is 3 and a half months old... It is difficult to make her sleep during day time. Any tips?
Watch her rhythms: You can't make a child sleep, just make them want to sleep, or give them opportunity to sleep. Those whose children sleep routinely in the day get them to do so by watching their daily rhythms, and starting calming behaviors around that time, making sure there is a bed nearby. Some children simply do not nap, but start by watching daily rhythms and work to time nap time accordingly. ...Read more

I sleep on my back all the time. Any other pose makes me uncomfortable. Is it good or bad sleeping on back? Which sleeping pose you advise?
Most comfortable: There is no "best" position for sleeping. But if you have snoring or sleep apnea, it will probably be worse when you are sleeping on your back. People with neck pain may have trouble when they sleep on their stomachs. The best position for people with lower back pain is to sleep on their backs with a pilliw under their knees. ...Read more

I don't know: I'm not sure what determines that in India. Tiffa scans are known as Ultrasounds in the states and are very safe in pregnancy or at any time since there is no radiation exposure. The question here would be insurance coverage or patient's willingness to pay and the doctor's willingness to order it. Another alternative would be quantitative HCG levels 2 or 3 days apart. With a missed abortion they fall ...Read more

Baby full bladder: Most likely if the kidneys look normal and the amniotic fluid is normal, all is well. Usually we'd repeat the ultrasound again later to see if the baby emptied in the meantime or not. If there was a blockage of the urine outflow from the bladder, the amniotic fluid level would not be normal, it would be very low. ...Read more
