Why do people get episiotomies in pregnancy?

Why do people get episiotomies in pregnancy?

Controversial: Most people do not need an episiotomy. In fact episiotomies cause more pain, more blood loss and greater tearing than letting the perineum stretch and tear on its own. There are infrequent situations where the baby may need to be delivered urgently or the shoulders are stuck and performing an episiotomy may be necessary. ...Read more

No worries: Pregnant women do not get negative pregnancy tests at 3 or more weeks after sex. If possibly pregnant, and very worried about tests, a woman can buy 2 different brands of pregnancy tests, and do both tests after reading the instructions carefully. If one or both of the tests are positive 3 weeks after sex, then she is pregnant (or was pregnant and her pregnancy failed within the past few days). ...Read more

How much time do you recommend that a couple waits before trying to conceive after miscarriage? I know these answers vary. I'm trying to get some opinions.

Conception: After miscarriage. You must remember that even though you miscarried you were pregnant and that is a big stress on your body from which you need to recovery. You also need to grieve, both of you. Because of this I generally recommend my patients wait 4-6 months to start trying again. It is normal to feel like it may happen again so you will worry a lot. May your God be with you. ...Read more

Why do you think women give birth at home ?

Why do you think women give birth at home ?

Risky behavior: My wife's pregnancy with our son was textbook perfect until her water broke (in the hospital). Then our son's fetal heart rate plummeted. He was born by emergency c section 5 minutes later and is now a cute, active and bright 4 year old. If we had been at home the delay would have resulted in severe brain damage. This could not have been predicted or prevented, which is why we have hospitals. ...Read more

I'l be 6 weeks pregnant tomorrow and want to know what types of exercises to do to terminate pregnancy?

There are none: There are no exercises or physical maneuvers that will terminate a pregnancy, and any attempt to do so would be very dangerous for you. A pregnancy can be safely terminated with a simple medication at this stage. A local Planned Parenthood or primary care doctor (outside of a religious medical institution) can provide either this service or a timely referral for termination. Don't wait though. ...Read more

After missed period: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. A negative result on a test done too early is not reliable. ...Read more
