The Danger Of Pressing The Stomach While Being 6 Months Pregnant?
danger of not pressing the stomach for 6 months? what effects to the fetus?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, the baby in the womb has multiple layers of protection. The baby is in amniotic fluid which protects the baby from collisions, is protected in the uterus which has strong and flexible muscles, is also protected in the pelvic bones and abdominal muscles and strong pelvic muscles. Therefore a mild collision (including also pressing the abdomen) on the stomach will not cause any complications in pregnancy and also the fetus.
However, if the impact on the abdomen is hard enough (for example due to falling in the stomach position below, the stomach is hit or cornered hard), you experience symptoms such as severe abdominal pain, blood or liquid discharge from the vagina, immediately check yourself into obstetrician to make sure your pregnancy and fetus are okay.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
