The Danger Of The Fetus Being Stressed Due To The Fall Of The Mother?
, if the fetus is stressed because the parents fall, is it dangerous or not the fetus?
Hello, Theresia11, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Falling during pregnancy definitely makes parents feel worried and it's a natural thing. However, please note that during pregnancy, the fetus in the womb has a lot of protection, such as amniotic fluid, thick uterine muscles, abdominal muscles and mother's fat pads, to the pelvis. So, not all falls can have a big impact on the fetus. Some of these things can affect the magnitude of the impact of the fall on the fetus, such as gestational age (the older the risk), the position when falling (falling with a hitting position has a high risk), the height of the surface when falling (higher the risk), and the age of the mother when falling (older is more at risk).
What to watch out for after a fall are the danger signs below:
1. There is severe abdominal pain or strong contractions of the uterus
2. Bleeding / spots / mucus blood from the birth canal (vagina)
3. The water breaks or is seeping
4. If the fetus is able to move, there is a decrease in fetal movement
5. Shortness of breath, weakness, fainting
If you experience the danger signs above, you should immediately consult a doctor to confirm their condition. The doctor will perform a pregnancy check and ultrasound.
The bigger the pregnancy, the more difficult it is for the mother to maintain a balanced body, the higher the risk for the mother to fall, and the greater the impact that can be on the fetus if it falls in late gestational age. For that, mothers must always be careful and vigilant. Stay focused when walking or driving to prevent falls. Staying focused and alert must be balanced with adequate nutrition and fluids every day.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
