Understanding the guidelines for labor induction

It may seem to some in Annapolis that recent scientific advances (coupled with a better general understanding of the birthing process) have made having a baby seem relatively routine. However, many of the complications commonly associated with labor today are a direct result of the current methods doctors use to deliver babies. In the past, all of those involved in a delivery were seemingly at the mercy of Mother Nature to initiate the process. However, today's providers often rely on induction methods to help faciltate delivery in certain cases. 

FDA rules and resources to help expectant mothers

Expectant mothers and fathers-to-be may find themselves simultaneously eager, nervous, excited and maybe a little scared. It is not unusual to see them portrayed in movies and sitcoms with stacks of books on their nightstands, constantly preoccupied with doing the right things and avoiding the wrong in order to ensure their baby grows and develops in a way they would consider healthy, strong and happy. Despite their best efforts, parents-to-be may find it difficult to navigate the labeling on their prescription drugs. In order to prevent harm to the developing child and the mother, they need to have sufficient information and counsel regarding drug information.

Are you at risk of preeclampsia?

Preeclampsia is a risk that many pregnant women face. It occurs when the expectant mother has high blood pressure and protein in her urine. The condition often develops after the 20th week of pregnancy. Headaches and blurry visions are among some of the symptoms that you might experience. Preeclampsia can be very dangerous for both you and your child, especially if left untreated.

America and the tragedy of pregnancy-related injuries

When it comes to child birth, most Americans don't think twice about the trust they place in the health system. Unfortunately, however, a devastating number of women in the country experience injuries upon birth. In Maryland, victims of birth injuries may seek settlements from doctors who made errors in prenatal care and upon delivery, but there are facts to know about childbirth and the injuries that can occur.

What is cerebral palsy?

New parents in Maryland have more than enough to worry about with a healthy birth. But what can you do if your child is not as healthy as you had hoped? If your child is diagnosed with cerebral palsy, what does this mean for them?
