Eating well when you are expecting doesn’t have to be overcomplicated.
We are here to debunk those myths and let you know the facts—the “do’s and don’ts” of pregnancy.
Many moms will tell you they think working a full-time job is easier than being a full-time stay-at-home mom.
When I was pregnant with my first, I had my hospital bag loosely packed somewhere around 35 weeks. With my second, I had very little packed at 38 ½ weeks. (What a shame since a surprise home delivery left no one time to pack anything else!) I landed somewhere in the middle with my third, packing my bag around 37 weeks. No matter where you are in your pregnancy, there is no right or wrong time to pack your bag—but there are definitely items to include on the “must-have” list.
The birth of your baby is a special time, but if your new little one requires a stay in the neonatal intensive care (NICU), that time may become stressful. According to Dr. Kathleen Weatherstone, HCA Midwest Health’s Neonatal ICU Program medical director, 10 percent of all babies born need some type of special care at delivery and that may include the NICU.
