Starting your antenatal care
Getting pregnant? Congratulations! Have you decided about which doctor to go to for your antenatal care and which hospital you want to deliver your precious baby? Call for an appointment with Dr Sharifah
You can book an appointment with your preferred obstetrician or your GP as soon as you know that you’re pregnant. It’s best to start your care as early as possible so that if you have medical illness, your special health needs and risk of complication during pregnancy could be assessed and anticipated. Early ultrasound to confirm the date of your pregnancy can also be done.
Be cautious with some foods
There are some foods to avoid when you’re in pregnant because they might make you ill or harm your baby. Make sure you know the important facts about which foods you should avoid or take precautions with when you’re in pregnant.
The birthing process is known as labor and delivery. No one can predict when labor will begin. One woman may have all the signs that her body is ready to deliver and the other may have no sign at all. However when the time comes you’re unlikely to mistake the signs of labor but if you’re in any doubt don’t hesitate to contact your doctor.
Considering inducing labor? Understand who makes a good candidate for inducing labor and why the intervention isn’t for everyone. Call for an appointment with Dr Sharifah and get some advice
Nature controls most aspects of labor — but sometimes nature needs a nudge. If your doctor decides you and your baby would benefit from delivering sooner rather than later, she might suggest inducing labor.
Considering the option to deliver by C-Section? Fearful of vaginal delivery? Discuss to your doctor first before you made up your mind. Cesarean delivery — also known as a C-section — is a surgical procedure used to deliver a baby through an incision in the mother’s abdomen and a second incision in the mother’s uterus.
