Can using a home fetal doppler harm my baby and is there a limit of use to be safe i'm 16 weeks preg?

Can using a home fetal doppler harm my baby and is there a limit of use  to be safe i'm 16 weeks preg?

Unlikely an issue: The past studies of doppler use have shown no negative effects.If repeated studies take up your time and take you away from other productive activities, i would consider it more a negative to your lifestyle than a problem for baby. This pregnancy will pass and there are many more issues to deal with than watching baby float around in the womb. ...Read more

While bleeding after a miscarrage can you use a tampon?

While bleeding after a miscarrage can you use a tampon?

You can use it: Often a miscarriage results in heavier bleeding than usual, so you will likely need to change it more often. Miscarriage during early pregnancy may not differ from normal period so use of tampon should not matter. Later in pregnancy, a miscarriage may result in passing of the abortifact and tampon cannot absorb that. If so, you may not want to use that. Sorry for your loss. Consult your doc. ...Read more

Is riding a street bike during pregnancy safe for the baby?

Is riding a street bike during pregnancy safe for the baby?

Wouldn't recommend: When you say street bike i assume a motorized bike. (although i feel the same about either late in pregnancy). Early in pregnancy (first trimester), the fetus is well protected and it would take a pretty significant blow to the abdomen to cause miscarriage. However, for the remainder of the pregnancy the fetus could be severely injured or killed by a fall from a bike (even a peddle bike). ...Read more

Is the use of a hand held sports vibrating percussion massager safe to use on back during pregnancy? My wife is currently only 7 weeks pregnant.

Is the use of a hand held sports vibrating percussion massager safe to use on back during pregnancy?  My wife is currently only 7 weeks pregnant.

Best avoided: It may be safe, but probably better to avoid it. It's almost impossible to do studies of these sort of things. I doubt it would strike hard enough to do damage, but it's never a good idea to subject a pregnant woman to too many vibrations or hard knocks, due to a very small chance of tearing the placenta. Odds are, she would be fine, but why take unnecessary risks? ...Read more
