Facts About Reproduction
The anatomy of the female reproductive system consists of the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix and vagina. The working of your reproductive system is mainly controlled by the female sex hormones, which are secreted by your ovaries and adrenal glands.
The human reproductive system is a fascinating entity. Did you know that the ovum that is released by your ovaries every 30 days or so is the largest cell in your body? At approximately 120 micrometer in diameter, one ovum is about the size of a pen dot on a piece of paper. Although the average uterus is only three inches long and two inches wide, it is able to expand up to 20 times its size during pregnancy. If you want to give your uterus a nickname, Mrs. Incredible is in order!
Schedule an appointment with us and let us walk you through more facts about your sophisticated reproductive machine. We promise that you will not take your periods for granted after that.
Dear Mommy, welcome to the wonderful world of motherhood! You are about to embark on one of the most exciting journeys of your life. Lucky for you, we are here to help.
If you are a first-time mother, we cannot stress enough on how crucial prenatal care is, especially in your first trimester. Prenatal care comprises routine checkups from your doctor, nurse or midwife throughout your pregnancy. This is in order to keep your health in check and ensure that both mother and baby are healthy.
Prenatal care enables your trusted healthcare provider to monitor your growing baby’s development and implement steps to take should there are health risks identified. There are many factors to be taken into consideration before we can administer proper prenatal care for your unique needs. Get in touch with us or walk in for an appointment to know more. The sooner you care for your growing bundle of joy, the better!
Congratulations, Mommy! Your motherhood journey is about to culminate and begin for real with the arrival of your baby.
There are many important decisions to be made prior to the arrival of your child. By now, you should have made some important decisions: who’s your chosen midwife, natural or C-section delivery, etc. You can also prepare for your delivery by signing up for a childbirth class. This class will help you identify the five signs of labour, episiotomies, pain management options and more.
If you’re an expectant mother and almost reaching your due date, be sure to pack your ‘delivery care package’ ahead of time to avoid rushing when the time finally comes. Below are the list of labour essentials to have in your delivery package:
- Your identification documents (driver’s license and photo ID)
- Your birth plan (if you have one planned); if you haven’t, do schedule an appointment with us
- A towel, pyjamas, bedroom slippers and socks
- Phone charger, your favourite drama series, a good book and anything else that helps you relax and feel comfortable
- Snacks — labour, as the name would suggest, is an energy-consuming task!
- Comfortable bras/nursing bras
- Maternity underwear
- A going-home outfit
- Baby essentials (towel, blanket, onesies, diapers, etc.)
We look forward to sharing this amazing motherhood journey with you!
