Pregnancy Health

If you are now pregnant (or are trying to get pregnant), prenatal care in pregnancy, with special attention on your health, is of utmost importance.  

Find out more about how to prepare your body for pregnancy and about how to stay healthy once pregnant.  For example, did you know that you not only need to take folic acid while pregnant--you should really start to take this and a full prenatal vitamin prior to pregnancy in order to ensure the right health and nutrition for your growing baby?

I am 27 weeks pregnant. Broke up with baby daddy when I was like 3 weeks pregnant. I used to wonder what's the fuss all about sex drive heightening the past five months until about three weeks ago when I would just pick up my phone and call baby daddy (whom I am not dating and months go by without hearing from him) just for sex. As I am typing this I am sitting in the office, and I feel like I am about to explode, I just can not help it. I desperately want to have sex. How long will this go on? Because I hate it, I hate being that girl that calls out on her ex for sex. I feel so dependent, weak ad cheap to him.

Pregnancy is a natural process. However, there is a certain amount of care and attention that needs to be provided to a pregnant woman. A thorough health check-up is absolutely essential during pregnancy. This is important not just to determine the health of the mother, but also that of the growing fetus. Leading women and child hospital like Rainbow Hospital provides comprehensive tests, which include genetic scans.
