“A mother’s care, shall not be conceptualized as a disease or as a single event or series of events, but as a very important source of information for the prevention and the treatment of women in a life-long health” said DR HALIMA NAZAR in live session on “MATERNAL CARE” at the platform of OUR HIKMAT. It centers around the health and well-being of a woman. Especially if she is pregnant at the time of their birth, and raising a child. Unfortunately, our average health care does not bridge the gulf between the mother and the ongoing primary care. The conflict has been devastating for many of the mothers, and the gap in the health care often means the difference between life and death.
That has to be noted that, in spite of the fact that being a mom is a full-featured, natural experience that is emotional, it is, as a mother, and a high percentage of the women have to go through a lot of problems when they are suffering from the point of view of health, and sometimes even death. It is therefore necessary to invest in the health of women. Investments can be made in a variety of ways, among which the most important are financing all of the costs of health care, and education in the areas of maternal health, the promotion of effective family planning and provide a step-by-step monitoring of the health of women and children.
OBESITY-THE MAJOR CULPRIT:
According to DR HALIMA NAZAR, women with a mean pre-pregnancy weight (BMI 18.5-24.9) expect to gain 25 to 35 pounds (11-16 kg) during pregnancy, higher rates of high blood pressure, diabetes, respiratory complications, and infections are prevalent in cases in which maternal obesity can lead to adverse effects on the course of pregnancy. Obesity is a strong risk factor for the development of diabetes in pregnant women. Studies have shown that obese mothers who lose weight (at least 10 pounds or 4.5 kg) in-between pregnancies reduce the risk of developing gestational diabetes in the next pregnancy, whereas mothers who gain weight actually increase their risk. Pregnant women should aim for at least 150 minutes of exercise per week, including muscle-building exercises.
Pregnancy is a stress test in the body of a woman, revealing the tips of your health and well-being in the future. Complications, such as gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, pregnancy, diseases, pre-eclampsia, depression, and substance use disorders fall into the neighborhoods, into the pregnancy. These terms and conditions and play an important role in the health of women over the course of the year of its birth, and the parents of the future of the chronic prevented or improved diseases that can be.
THANK YOU, MOM!
Taking into account the fact that women bear the burden of pregnancy and childbirth, we would like to honor her memory through the development of policies and practices that form a bridge between the mother’s care and well-coordinated primary maternal health care. Men, for their part, cannot speak out in support of the legal and financial initiatives that invest in the insurance policy and a coherent, co-ordinated care of his mother, who have for a long time after their children are born.
The women don’t have to go out and have to opt for a C-section, there is a need to have a good knowledge of the pregnancy planning and counseling in the event of complications. Diet and exercise regimen should be included in the care of the skin during pregnancy as well as during the trimesters. Women’s participation in awareness-raising campaigns, and to all the mal-practice should be presented in order to prevent the mortality rate (MMR).
OUR HIMAT would like to pay gratitude to DR HALIMA NAZAR for the delightful knowledge she shared which helped spreading awareness on maternal care and the DO’s and DON’Ts during this challenging time of women’s life.
