Pregnancy and Their Stages
Presentation Transcript

  • Slide 1 - Pregnancy and their STAGES
  • Slide 2 - Pregnancy is a wonderful and exciting time in a couple’s life. They both want the best for their baby and want their baby to be healthy.
  • Slide 3 - Pregnant women are always worried what to do and what not to do, is this food healthy or not?
  • Slide 4 - Pregnancy Overview Pregnancy occurs when sperm cells swim up the fallopian tube and only one enters into the ovum. Some kind of mechanism occurs in the egg which makes sure that no other sperm enters and this is known as fertilization.
  • Slide 5 - During pregnancy, women experience 3 different stages, they face problems or discomforts, they should consume a healthy diet, they must have prenatal care and doctors should recommend their medications, if any. Stages of Pregnancy
  • Slide 6 - The first stage is known as the “1st Trimester”. During this stage, the baby’s length is about 7 and half centimeters long and weighs about ½ an ounce (15 grams). It’s eyes move closer together to its normal position and the ears too. The liver starts producing bile and the kidneys secrete urine into the bladder. Pregnancy Fist Stage : 1st Trimester
  • Slide 7 - The second stage is known as “2nd Trimester”. By about 6 months, the baby weighs almost 1 kg and is about 33 cm long. It’s arms, fingers, legs, toes, and feet are formed and essential organs are formed like the heart and lungs. The baby will start moving by this time. Pregnancy Fist Stage : 2nd Trimester
  • Slide 8 - The third stage is known as the “3rd Trimester”. During this stage, the baby’s height will double and it’s weight will multiply 5 times. At 9 months, the normal baby will weigh 3 to 4 kg and it’s height will be about 50 cm. The baby will start to move to birth position and will start moving to the lower abdomen. Pregnancy Fist Stage : 3rd Trimester
  • Slide 9 - Problems and Discomforts During Pregnancy Pregnant women often experience heartburn, constipation and hemorrhoids. To avoid these problems, they have to eat less fats and drink a lot of fluids. Another problem they face is “Edema”. This happens when pregnancy hormones produce a lot of fluids and these extra fluids causes a swelling on the skin.
  • Slide 10 - A third problem is “morning sickness” which is accompanied by an increased sense of smell. About 75% of women experience this problem during the early stages of pregnancy. To control this, they should stop eating fried foods. The last problem is “Anemia” which is a lack of iron in the red blood cells. Iron is essential in the hemoglobin because it transports oxygen to the cells. In general, pregnant women has a low percentage of red blood cells which is normal (physiological anemia). But, when there is a deficiency in consuming iron in the diet, then they should consult a doctor. Problems and Discomforts During Pregnancy
  • Slide 11 - Pregnant Woman and Weight Gain Weight gain is expected during pregnancy. A normal pregnant woman gains 11.5-16 kg and a woman carrying twins will gain about 15-20 kg.
  • Slide 12 - A pregnant woman should eat healthy diet for her and the baby’s as well. She should eat from all the different nutrients including, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals but should not exceed the amount. She should avoid fried foods, Alcohol, smoking etc. during pregnancy. Pregnant Women should Consume a Healthy Diet
  • Slide 13 - Nutrients that should be eaten during pregnancy Folate or folic acid is important for cell division and organ formation. Food sources are, green leafy vegetables, nuts and whole grain breads. If there is a deficiency, this will cause a birth defect known as “spina bifida” – a problem with the spinal cord of the baby. Calcium is important for the bones of the mother and baby too. Food sources are, milk, cheese, yoghurt and green leafy vegetables.
  • Slide 14 - Iron is important for hemoglobin in which transports oxygen to the cells of the body. Good food sources are, meat, poultry, fish and green leafy vegetables. Proteins are also important to take during pregnancy and good sources of proteins are, meat, fish, poultry, nuts and eggs. Nutrients food eaten during pregnancy
  • Slide 15 - Drink plenty of fluids. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Exercise on a regular basis. Limit coffee, tea and fizzy drinks, because of the caffeine – as it may cause birth defects. Avoid spicy foods. Get plenty of rest. Doctor checkup on regular basis Recommendations during pregnancy
  • Slide 16 - Pregnant Women Should Have Prenatal Care During the first 6 months, she should visit once a month, during the next 2 months, she should visit every 2 weeks and when near delivery , she should visit weekly.
  • Slide 17 - Most of the time, medicines don’t enter the fetus or the baby but in some cases it does enter the fetus and causes damage or birth defects, so it’s better not to take the risk. Herbal can be much better than other medications - but be sure it’s a doctor’s prescription.
