Lesson 17 – Reducing The Risk Of Birth Defects
I dedicate these songs to those who are preparing to be small and have great happiness ...
I borrowed from Jean-Louis Fournier in the famous work, "Daddy, where are we going?" * To start this article:
“... For those who have never been afraid of having an abnormal child, raise your hand.
Nobody raised their hand
Everyone thinks of it as an earthquake, like an apocalypse, .
If someone desires their children to be smart, beautiful, and endowed with many talents, I honestly wish that each child will be born with all the parts and functions of nature, capable of sensing joys and sorrows - sad in life, able to learn something (not need to be good) and grow up every day.
Before continuing reading, I urge you not to expect too much of the following things to guarantee what the child you conceive, because, there are things almost "destiny". Is it reasonable, if you know, to think, I will reduce the wrong decisions and attitude.
Every mother has a 3-5% chance of having a baby with a birth defect (US statistics). The causative agent of birth defects (teratogen) is a factor that increases this risk
Chemicals and toxic substances like mercury
Alcohol and some banned substances
Vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin A overdose
Medications, such as warfarin used to prevent blood clots (blood clots)
Mother has an infection, such as chicken pox
Maternal medical condition, such as untreated diabetes
Naturally, every mother was at risk of giving birth to an abnormal child, not to mention the countless things she ate, drank, and exposed every day.
Some chemicals and toxic substances are "labeled" to cause birth defects, the rest, people still do not dare to confirm the true cause of the abnormalities of a child.
What should I do to reduce the risk of birth defects for my baby before birth?
Prenatal examination: this section I had a separate article in detail. In short, you and your doctor will review what is relevant to you that may affect your child (for example, medications being used to treat acne, existing conditions that require long-term treatment. .).
Look for genetic risk factors: some diseases go on from parent to child and generations to come. You need to have a plan in place to find and determine whether your child is likely to have high or low, treat or not.
Take a daily vitamin supplement, most importantly 0.
4mg of folic acid before and during pregnancy. Folic acid is a form of viatmin that helps reduce the risk of neural tube defects in children. To be effective, you need to take folic acid supplements at least 1 month before getting pregnant. If you have ever had a neural tube defect, you need to maintain it during the first 3 months of pregnancy.
Use medication with caution: do not buy any medications yourself if you are going to and are pregnant. Tell your doctor if you intend or are pregnant when prescribed by your doctor. Don't think that medicine is harmless, because medicine is an ever-changing industry. Today, a certain medicine is proven safe in pregnancy, suddenly a beautiful day, "they" say affects the development, behavior of children later (for example, this is a popular drug, buy more easily than candy - Paracetamol).
Maintain a healthy lifestyle and ideal weight: only one element of maternal obesity, naturally your child will be at greater risk of malformations, the risk of congenital heart disease than other babies. Moreover, obesity reduces the accuracy of ultrasound screening for birth defects, increasing the risk of missing defects during pregnancy monitoring.
Do not drink: alcohol has been shown to cause malformation, mental retardation. There is currently no recommendation on how much alcohol it will affect, so it's better to stay away.
Preventing infections: by getting vaccinated, by staying healthy, avoiding crowded places, avoiding going to epidemic places.
Find out more about your surroundings and some harmful agents like lead, mercury, radiation ..
Avoid saunas or hot baths for too long.
If taking a hot bath, just soak up to the shoulders, the water is not too hot and the time does not exceed 15 minutes.
Periodic pregnancy examination and full implementation. This section will reschedule a separate article about current tests and diagnostic values.
I can not advise anyone if unfortunately not discovered fetal deformities, just thinking, every child has the right to be born whole and healthy. In addition, there are conditions that are difficult to detect during pregnancy, or more tired, manifested only very late. Just recently, I was amazed to see an emotional video clip of a baby with Down syndrome hugging his dad after many days apart. I asked myself, "What defect stops love?". .
