The moment one discovers she is pregnant it is natural to be bombarded with advises of all nature. What was an allergy cause for your cousin would actually benefit you. Similarly the weight of the new born differs in each case. Milestones are different too. Breastfeeding has to be self learnt and only the mother knows when the baby is hungry. Traditional beliefs of massaging oneself and the baby are to be done only after consulting the doctor. Many of these questions will be easily answered if one enrolls into a prenatal class.
Primarily let your gynecologist guide you to a prenatal class. This will help you convey better to your doctor about the problems you are facing. Prenatal classes explain about conception, the typical structure of twins, abnormalities in pregnancy, the latest methods and process used to induce pain and lessen the delivery time. They also educate you about yoga and pilates classes and one may enroll only after seeking your doctors approval. Many pre natal classes include sessions which can be attended by your spouse.
Use a diary and a list out your apprehensions. Patience is the key as you will discover the magic in conception, formation of the physical aspect of the baby in each trimester, how your diet and mental balance helps secret the best hormones and how the child is ready for delivery. Cases of C section and breech babies are also articulated with supported pictures or videos.
Breathing technique is vital during the delivery process and this is taught here. Also the last trimester has a pressure on your diaphragm and finally as the baby goes head down breathing seems difficult. This is when these breathing techniques come handy. Much knowledge about the science behind breast feeding, breast pumps, and how milk is generated is talked about in these sessions.
