Did you go through a difficult pregnancy? With health scares for her and bub along the way, Cathy shares her story for other mums to find hope!
Q&A: I have been diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes. It will need to be diet control first with 4 daily finger pricks and low GI Diet. Who else was diagnosed with this? And did it turn into insulin injections?
Q&A: Im 24 weeks and I just seen my obstetrician and she said that my 20 week scan has shown 2 cysts on my babies brain. She said it is common and most likely will go away, if not it could lead to my baby having Down syndrome. Did anyone else have this? I have no idea what to think!
The moment your waters break is usually a signal for women that they will get to meet their baby soon. But sometimes baby doesn’t come straight away or it happens before full term. Our midwife, Caroline May, explains what PROM and PPROM are, and what you can expect if you experience it.
Q&A: I went to my doctor today for my checkup. I am currently 38 weeks along. He said to me he would recommend a c section as it is a big baby and because I am small with narrow hips it could make a mess of things if I give birth naturally. As this is my first I am very nervous about a c section and normal delivery, getting a nit anxious. Basically I’m just wondering if anyone else’s situation was similar and what they chose to do as I would rather the safest option for myself and my baby.
Q&A: I would love some advice on complete placenta previa. I’m 20 weeks and My Dr has just told me that my placenta is centered over my cervix and in her opinion when she sees it like this it doesn’t move. I do go back for a scan at 32 weeks just in the off chance it does move.
