Postnatal preventive care is as important as prenatal care. The postnatal period lasts for 6-8 weeks after the baby is born. During this period a new mother goes through several physical and emotional changes while learning to care for her newborn. The most important elements of postnatal care are enough rest, good nutrition and vaginal care. At about six weeks post-birth, you may have a postnatal screening where your doctor will check for general physical and mental well-being.

Water birthing process has gained a lot of appreciation in the recent few years. We at WIF Hospital provide you the choice of this beautiful yet safe birthing option. Water birthing is the process of giving birth in a tub of warm water under medical supervision. The unborn baby labours its way naturally from the wombs watery environment into a similar environment of the birthing tub. It is considered gentler for the baby and less stressful for the pregnant mother. There has been very little research undertaken on birthing in water and even less on using water in the early (latent) stage of la

HYPNO BIRTHING You may find hypnobirthing helpful. While every labour and birth is different, about 40 per cent of women plan to use natural pain relief in labour, including hypnosis. What is hypnobirthing? Hypnobirthing techniques aim to teach you ways to stay in control and calm during labour and birth, whatever happens.

WEEKLY CALENDER

The process of pregnancy marks a pivotal change in the life of any new mother, both physically and mentally. Physically, you will be faced with some changes, ranging from swollen and tender breasts, fatigue and increased urination. Emotionally, you may be faced with rapidly changing moods, ranging from excitement and joy to anxiety and agitation. To ensure that you are well equipped to manage this, it is important that you research as much as is possible about the different stages that go into pregnancy, as well as what you can expect from each one.

Pregnancy is broken up into three distinct phases, or trimesters, across which foetal development can typically be mapped. Find out what each trimester holds for you and your newborn come through our week by week pregnancy calendar.

First Trimester:

  • Week 1 & 2:
    Conception typically occurs about two weeks after your last period begins. While calculating your due date, doctors count ahead by 40 weeks from the start of your last period.
  • Week 3:
    During this stage, you will begin ovulating, and one of your eggs will be released, travelling from your ovary into a fallopian tube. During the next 12 to 24 hours, your egg will be fertilised by a sperm that managed to penetrate it. During the next 10 to 30 hours, the sperm’s nucleus will merge with that of the egg. Over the next three to four days, the fertilised egg, or zygote, will move down into your uterus or womb, and also begin to form a cluster of cells, called the morula.
  • Week 4:
    By the time the rapidly dividing cluster of cells, now called a blastocyst, reaches your uterus, it will have split into two distinct sections. While the inner section will become the embryo, the outer section will begin burrowing into the lining of your uterus, so that your body can start nourishing it. This process is called implantation. In tandem, your placenta, which will nourish your baby during the months of pregnancy, has also begun to form.
  • Week 5:
    The fifth week begins the embryonic period, where your baby’s brain, spinal cord, heart and other organs begin to form. Comprising of three layers, the embryo’s top layer, called the ectoderm, will form your baby’s outermost layer of skin, central and peripheral nervous systems, as well as the eyes, the inner ears and other connective tissues. The middle layers, called the mesoderm, will form your baby’s heart and a primitive circulatory system. This layer will also form the basis of your baby’s bones, muscles, kidneys and much of the reproductive system. The inner layer, also called endoderm, will form a simple tube that is lined by mucous membranes. The lungs, intestine and bladder of your baby will begin developing here.
  • Week 6:
    This week marks a significant amount of growth for your baby. The neural tube along the back of your baby is closing, and your baby’s heart has begun to pump blood. The body begins to take a C-shaped curve and begins to form small buds that will become arms and legs. Rudimentary facial features have begun to form, with passageways that will eventually form into the inner ears and arches that will form the jaw also starting to take shape.
  • Week 7:
    At this stage, the brain and face of your baby begin to grow quickly. The arm buds that developed last week begin to take shape, forming into paddle-shaped appendages. Tiny nostrils, as well as eye lenses, begin to form.

    The eighth week sees your baby begin to form longer arms and legs, with fingers also beginning to form. The baby’s upper lip and nose also begin to form here. Your baby’s ears are also taking form, and the trunk of the body also begins to straighten.

  • Week 11:
    In this week, your baby’s eyes are widely separated, with the eyelids fused and the ears being low set. Red blood cells begin to form in the liver, and by the end of this week, your baby’s external genitalia start developing either into a penis or a clitoris and labia majora.

    At week 13, your baby’s intestines return to the abdomen from the umbilical cord. Your baby also begins to form urine and discharge it into the amniotic fluid. Tissues also develop around your baby’s head and within the arms and legs which will later become bone.
