Breastfeeding is the best for babies and a healthy diet / maternal nutrition is important when breastfeeding. A decision not to breastfeed can be difficult to reverse. Infant formula is suitable from birth when babies are not breastfed. It is recommended that all formula milks be used on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian, pharmacist, or other professional responsible for maternal and child care and the financial implications should be considered. All preparation and feeding instructions should be followed carefully as inappropriate preparation could lead to health hazards.


How To Induce Labour Naturally & Is It Advisable To Do So?



Jenny answered:

"There are no proven non-medical ways for inducing labor naturally. The only safe and reliable methods for inducing a labor involve medications given at the hospital, under the doctor's care and supervision. Some people on the other hand, try to & induce labor by having sex (In which an orgasm can definitely cause the uterus to contract). There are also some research suggests that acupuncture and acupressure done by certified practitioners may help to induce labor by stimulating the energies in your body. For all these methods, it is always recommended to discuss with your doctor. In any case, your baby will come out when he is ready to see the world."

"To induce birth naturally, you may want to try having sex, brisk walking (and it means lots of brisk walking), nipples stimulation or apply petrolum jelly such as vaseline during sex. If not, your gynae may prescribe a pill for you to insert into vaginal to increase dilation so that your cervix will open. Your gynae will inform you if there is a need, common reasons being your cervix has already dilated, baby's weight has not been increasing etc."
