Pregnancy

Pregnancy is typically divided into 3 trimesters. The first trimester is from week 1 through 12. During the first trimester, the possibility of miscarriage is at its highest. The second trimester is from week 13 through 28. At 28 weeks, more than 90% of babies can survive outside of the uterus if provided with high-quality medical care. The third trimester is from 29 weeks through 40 weeks.

Overview

Prenatal care improves pregnancy outcomes. Prenatal care may include:

  • Taking extra folic acid
  • Avoiding drugs and alcohol
  • Regular exercise
  • Blood tests
  • Regular physical examinations.

Complications of pregnancy may include:

  • Disorders of high blood pressure
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Iron-deficiency anemia
  • Severe nausea and vomiting

In the ideal childbirth, labor begins on its own when a woman is "at term". Pregnancy is considered at full term when gestation has lasted 39 to 41 weeks.

Great question. This is a complex discussion that requires the input of both your gastroenterologist and IVF doctor. Current evidence states that the transmission of viral hepatitis in assisted reproduction is possible, but the degree of risk is unknown. Your partner who is n...

Please do not worry. If you are afraid of pain there are many good pain relief options that are available to women in labour. The contraction forces in labour can be very intense. Some mums are able to manage this well without pain relief with breathing techniques and keeping calm ...

Different people have different levels of pain thresholds. Some women are able to go through natural childbirth without asking for any form of pain relief. The majority of women however will ask for something to relieve their discomfort. Entonox (laughing gas) is a colourless, odour...

The only painful part of the whole IVF process is the Oocyte retrieval and this is very often done under a light General Aneaesthetic. The daily injections of the stimulant are very often bearable-like an “ant-bite”.
