In case you are wondering about the questions you should ask or the areas you should touch upon during your discussion with the doctor, here I'm giving you some pointers that will help you get relevant information regarding your pregnancy and help you make more informed choices.
• What Are The Right Kinds Of Exercises Recommended For You?
✓ Exercise is a great way of toning and keeping your body fit during pregnancy. However, you need to consult your doctor before you take up any exercise. While swimming and walking are generally considered safe all through the term, other forms of work-outs like yoga, aerobics or gym activities have to be undertaken only under expert supervision. The exercise regime has to match your pregnancy trimester and your body type as well. If you have medical conditions like asthma, bleeding or cervical issues, then you should avoid any form of strenuous activity.
• What Are The Right Foods For You?
✓ If you have some medical conditions like gestational diabetes or anaemia, then your diet would need certain modifications or supplementation. Therefore, planning your food chart after consulting your health practitioner would be an ideal thing to do.
• What Are The Recommended Pregnancy Vaccinations?
✓ Pregnancy vaccinations like the influenza vaccine or the Tdap vaccine protect your body and foetus from any untoward complications that may occur due to the viruses.
• Which Pain-Management Choices Are Best For You?
✓ Depending upon the hospital policies and your condition during labour, you can be provided with a number of pain-reducing aides like gas and air, analgesics, topical anaesthesia (epidurals) etc. However, you must have a discussion with your doctor regarding the pros and cons of each technique, so that you can make an informed choice.
• What Are Your Chances Of Having A Caesarean?
✓ There are certain factors that increase the chances of a caesarean delivery – like age, weight, placental complications, gestational diabetes etc. Consult your doctor to understand the details of a caesarean birth in case you have to undergo the surgical procedure. Also, take guidance regarding post-operative precautions and care.
