Why babies die?

Image
It is very infrequent for a baby to die in late pregnancy these days because women are in good health and good antenatal care is available. However, regrettably, some babies do die, sometimes without threatening and despite women doing all the right things. Some babies die in the uterus before they are born called an intrauterine fetal death. It can happen during the last half of pregnancy or during the labour and birth, when it is known as intrapartum death. When the baby has died during labour and birth is born, this is called a stillbirth. If a baby is born alive but dies in some weeks of life, this is called a neonatal death.
Many people think that stillbirths happen because of a growing or genetic problem that means the baby could not survive. In detail, this is the case for less than one in ten stillborn babies.For as several as 6 in 10 stillborn babies, the cause of death is not known.

The pessimistic effects of environmental exposure during pregnancy on fetal growth and children development have been confirmed. It has been found that environmental exposures during pregnancy have a great influence on the growth and development of fetus, birth outcomes and children's psychology, behavior and neural development. In this review, according to different types of environmental exposures, we focused on the key issues of the fetus or children induced by four aspects of environment exposure, including environmental chemicals, unhealthy life styles and behaviors, stress and other risk factors, and discussed the adverse effects of environmental factors on the growth and development of infants, children's psychology, behavior, social and cognitive, such as birth defects, autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, emotional problems, learning disorder and intelligence development and so on. We also suggested that the researches on mechanism of t…

Preconception Health:
Preconception health refers to the health before pregnancy. Maternal lifestyle in the period prior to conception, as well as during pregnancy, is an important determinant of healthy pregnancy and normal fetal development. By the time most women have realised that they are pregnant and have taken the first contact with antenatal care, the fetal organs have already been developed. Interventions aiming to prevent adverse pregnancy outcomes related to organogenesis are thus often too late. Risk factors include insufficient nutrition, low levels of folate, overweight/obesity, medical conditions and its treatments, alcohol and tobacco use, and high age.
Maternal nutrition both preconception and during pregnancy can affect growth, development and later health outcomes of the fetus. To reduce the risk of neural tube defects (NTDs) in the fetus, women are advised an intake of 400 μg folic acid daily in good time before conception and up to 12 weeks after. As an increasing …

Hope during High risk Pregnancy!

High-risk pregnancies affect a notable number of women each year. Around 22% of all pregnant women are classified as having high-risk pregnancies. A high-risk pregnancy is defined as any pregnancy in which there is evidence of actual or potential threat of harm to the life or health of the mother and/or the baby because of a disorder or situation coincidental with or unique to pregnancy. Women who were suffering through high-risk pregnancies may require complex care involving lifestyle modifications, pharmacological and technical support and even hospitalization. As a result, these women may experience feelings of vulnerability because they have a high-risk pregnancy and thus be more exposed to stressful feelings. Research into the social and psychological aspects of high-risk pregnancies has focused on the concerns, stressors and needs of women with high-risk pregnancies during the antepartum period.
