hi moms.. many of you have read my previous post on TORCH infection.. thanks a lot for all your love, support and wishes.. although I m not a doctor but wanna share some symptoms, effects and precautions of TORCH infection whatever I came to know during this period..
There are essentially two ways of transmission of this infection..
1} across the placenta- the fetus depends on ur immunity..so it has no resistance against the Virus that crosses the placental boundary..
2} during childbirth- this infection may pass through body fluids and maternal blood too during or after birth.
some of the general signs are fever, rashes on skin(small red or purple spots), jaundice and flu.. these signs may not b taken so seriously.. but they create havoc in fetus..
*proper hygiene should b maintained
*stay away from pets like cats..these can cause toxoplasmosis
*don't ever eat raw meat or eggs
*avoid insects such as flies
*do eat nutritious foods
*avoid contact with people suffering from torch
*perform tests before pregnancy and do get vaccinated such as MMR vaccine to prevent rubella..
guys do take proper care of urself in the first trimester especially so that u don't have to suffer any of these infections..stay healthy..stay happy.. 😊
