What to expect 20 week ultrasound
GIVING all pregnant women an ultrasound scan at eight months would prevent 15,000 breech births annually, a study reveals. It would also save eight newborn lives each year, experts estimate. A breech birth is when a baby’s bum or feet emerge first rather than the head, raising risk of complications. Research on 3,900 expectant mums by Cambridge and East Anglia universities reveals midwives and doctors failed to spot the problem half of the time. If picked up, medics could try to turn the baby head first, or organise a caesarean section. Dr Ed Wilson, of UEA, said: “Routine scanning could prevent around 15,000 undiagnosed breech presentations, more than 4,000 emergency caesarean sections and between seven and eight baby deaths per year.” Sex Secrets Prostitute who earns £2,000 a week reveals the average penis size ... and how much she enjoys work NOT JUST SPOTS!

Sarah Elizabeth Richards, The Washington Post Published 9:52 am PST, Monday, January 7, 2019 During Carrie Wells'sfirst OB/GYN visit after learning she was pregnant this summer, the 30-year-old was surprised when her doctor suggested a blood test that could detect her baby's risk of Down syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities as early as 10 weeks. At her age, she hadn't been worried about conceiving a child with a genetic disorder. Wells's obstetrician/gynecologist explained that the test, called a "cell-free DNA" screen, analyzes the fetal genetic information that travels from the mother's placenta and poses no risk to the baby. The doctor had been routinely prescribing it for her patients who were older and higher risk, now she was prescribing it to younger women, as well. The doctor's reasoning: women under 35 had more babies overall and account for 80 percent of country's 6,000 annual Down births, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. … [Read more...] about An early, safe prenatal test gains popularity
