I just had a preterm baby of 35weeks, I'm a second-time mom. how do I care for her at home? thanks
At home, temperature regulation is still very important. So babies should be kept warm. Socks, Caps and mittens should be worn for them. They should not be exposed especially immediately after baths. Nevertheless, they should not be excessively overwrapped as this might also increase their temperature. Mothers can also practice KMC- kangaroo mother care as this would have been appropriately demonstrated by the nursing staff before discharge.

Jaundice is actually due to high level of a substance called BILIRUBIN in the blood of the Newborn. It is this Bilirubin that is actually yellow in colour…..and it is the staining of the eyes and skin by bilirubin that causes the yellowish discolouration known as Jaundice. In fact another name for jaundice in newborn is Neonatal Hyperbilirubinaemia…..too much bilirubin. Remember this bilirubin, because all problems from Jaundice is the bilirubin and all treatment for jaundice in the newborn is to remove bilirubin or at least to make it safe because bilirubin is toxic or poisonous to the brain of a newborn

Test results show you're pregnant. Early cyesis means the state of being pregnant (An Early Pregnancy Scan (sometimes also called a Viability Scan or Dating Scan)); the period from conception to birth when a woman carries a developing fetus in her uterus. You will need to do a scan in 2 weeks to confirm the pregnancy. All the best

I will advise you to do a blood pregnancy test in 7- 14 days to be sure. From your description, you spotted for 2 days before your period flow. If it was pregnancy, the light blood would have probably stopped in 2 days Maximum. I would have argued it was implantation Bleeding. Read more about implantation bleeding online.

it depends, how old is your pregnancy? I bit will advise you to wait a little bit if the pregnancy isn't up to 30 weeks yet.
Good morning every one pls help a sister I went for 20 weeks scan yesterday to know the sex of my child so that I can start buying...
At 20 weeks, scans are more likely to be accurate by then. At that time, you’ll get an ultrasound, and the technician should be able to tell the baby’s gender but not that it's only about 90 - 95 per cent accuracy. The biggest reason for the error is that it’s simply too early for the technician or doctor to see the gender clearly. So you may want to wait a bit to rule out doubts

How much sperm can cause pregnancy?Can a little bit of sperm impregnant a woman?
Sure thing, even Pre-ejaculate (pre-cum) can also have a tiny bit of sperm in it, so pre-cum may cause pregnancy if it gets into the vagina.
I'm pregnant and am still seeing period pls what is the cause? is it normal?
No. Since your period stops after your body starts producing hCG — also known as the pregnancy hormone — it isn't possible to experience a true period during pregnancy. During the early stages of pregnancy, however, some women experience spotting or light bleeding — and it's usually normal.
Pls my last period was 11 July wen is the best time to go for scan?
An ultrasound is a painless diagnostic test that relies on sound waves, and most women will have at least one during pregnancy. Your first ultrasound will typically be done between 18 and 20 weeks, but you may have one before 12 weeks to confirm your due date.
Good evening, please, my sis went for clinic and she was told that she has fibroids and she is 4 month pregnant. Hope all is well...
Most women will experience no effects from fibroids during their pregnancy. However, 10 to 30 per cent of women with fibroids develop complications during pregnancy. So you have to make sure you get expert advice from your doctor

Do not give gripe water. It is completely unnecessary. Just continue to breastfeed exclusively
