First screening: ultrasound and blood chemistry

Pregnancy screening is a complex of studies. It includes ultrasound diagnostics (ultrasound) and a biochemical blood test. The first screening allows doctors to get detailed information about the health of the fetus and the expectant mother. The doctor makes all the indicators in a special program. It automatically calculates whether there are opportunities for the development of pathologies and the risks of anomalies. With its help, various developmental anomalies are eliminated, and the physiology of the unborn baby is revealed.

First trimester screening

A study is being conducted between the eleventh and thirteenth weeks of pregnancy. There is no point in conducting it earlier. Most of the data will be non-indicative.

The first screening includes two medical tests – ultrasound and hormone analysis. Continue reading

Pelvic Presentation: Flipping Techniques

My name is Anna Batrak, I am a perinatal psychologist, an experienced instructor in exercise therapy for pregnant women with a patent for changing the position of the fetus in the uterus. I would like to cover such a topic as the pelvic presentation of the fetus and methods of inverting it.

Presentation of the fetus is the position of the baby in the womb of the mother. Usually it is examined at 32-33 weeks of gestation. Prior to this period, with incorrect presentation of the fetus, the tactics of expectant observation are used in the expectation that the fetus itself will take the desired position. However, after 33 weeks, the probability of a flip to the correct position becomes lower with each week. In order to help the baby to take the right position, you can use special exercises from corrective gymnastics.

There are several techniques that can help correct the presentation of the fetus in the uterus. Continue reading

Thyroid hormones and which tests to take

In this article we will talk about thyroid hormones. I am often approached with problems: “I have very dry skin”, “Why can my hair roll like this?”, “Why are there often constipations?” To solve these complex problems, we are looking for the root cause of the phenomena. The question arises, are there any thyroid dysfunctions and is everything all right with hormones? It is the thyroid gland that regulates the metabolic processes in the body. An accurate diagnosis, in this case, is impossible without the results of analyzes. Therefore, the specialist will not be able to develop a treatment regimen. Only passing the tests will get rid of the problem that bothers you.

Thyroid hormone tests

There is a basic list of thyroid hormone tests.

TSH (TSH, thyroid stimulating hormone). It is produced in the pituitary and pineal gland. Its function is to influence the cells of the thyroid gland so that they capture iodine and synthesize hormones. TSH affects the pituitary gland, suppressing its function, in case T3 and T4 are at a high level. Continue reading
