Tips For A Normal Birth At 17 Years Old?
I want to ask what are the tips for a normal delivery without sewing at the age of 17
Hello Vanessa, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
First of all, you need to know that the skin condition in the perineum in every woman can be different. There are women who have more elastic skin and others who have stiffer skin. Tears will tend to occur in the skin that is stiffer. Tears can also occur if the baby is born large. Often times these tears are unavoidable. In some women it is sometimes necessary to perform an episiotomy to help dilate the birth canal to expel the baby's head.
Here are some things you can do:
Perform massage on the perineum since pregnancy entered the last months. You can ask your obstetrician or midwife to perform this perineal massage technique. Do exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles (Kegel exercises) Eat nutritious foods to ensure the health of your body and skin as well. Watch your weight gain well, avoid excessive weight gain so that the baby does not overweight When you give birth, pay attention to instructions from your doctor or midwife. Don't take it prematurely and take it the right way. If your place of delivery allows, do the labor in an upright position (not lying down)
You can discuss these methods with your midwife or obstetrician.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
