Hello, our mother 🥰
Unfortunately, we are facing an outbreak of unprecedented effects lately.
As a whole world, we’re pretty worried right now. Both for public health and for ourselves. Especially in the minds of expectant mothers may be much more question marks in this process. Our mothers, our mothers, we’re very sorry that you have to go through something like this first🥺
We may be getting pretty confused by the news we’ve read on social media. Perhaps the hardest part of the process we’re in is that we’re still in the learning phase. Even though we can’t find definitive answers to each question, we continue to learn more and more every day. But we want to tell you that even if the process is quite worrying, everything will be beautiful again. As long as you take the precautions you need to take.
Now let’s try to answer some of the questions you have in mind.
A covid-19-positive expectant mother candidate doesn’t infect her baby.
However, the number of research on this subject is not very much. The result of our limited research shows that. Research so far shows that a mother with coronavirus positive has not infected her baby. The results of the research on 4 people in Wuhan, China, are in this direction. Tests of covid-19 positive mothers’ babies were negative and none of the babies showed symptoms of coronavirus.
Then a study of nine women is the same. It is also worth saying that most of the births of these studies were performed by caesarean section to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus. However, this does not mean that all covid-19 positive expectant mothers should have cesarean birth because as we mentioned, not enough research has been done. We find it useful to refocus on this question, which is still not conclusive, the research we have is very limited.
Are there any new cases of coronavirus in newborn babies?
I’m afraid so. Unfortunately, the result of a test of a newborn baby in England has been positive. However, it is not yet known whether the baby was transmitted from the mother of the virus or from covid-19-positive employees at the hospital. All we know right now is that your mother and the baby are stable.
What are the precautions that expectant mothers should take during this outbreak?
The more you learn more about this, the more suggestions are increasing, so the best thing to do is stay in touch with your doctor, who will be able to provide you with the most up-to-date and personalized information. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), i.e. American College of Obstetricians, said:
- If you have recently travelled abroad or have a contact, make sure you consult a center and take the necessary precautions.
- Expectant mothers are prioritized as they will be assessed at risk.
- You will be asked a lot of questions about symptoms, you should answer them in detail.
Your doctor should always be the source where you can get the most accurate information in this regard.
What can you do if you’re afraid to go to hospitals?
Some expectant mothers are currently evaluating home birth options or maternity centers rather than giving birth in hospitals. You can also consider your options by consulting from hospitals and midwives.
If the expectant Covid-19 is positive, what about the birth process?
If a pregnant woman carrying the virus gives birth, she will be treated isolated from other patients in the hospital, and all hospital staff who will assist them will take the necessary precautions during this time.
In such a case, the father candidate should take all kinds of measures to the maximum level. In the process, if the father candidate does not carry a virus, there is no harm in the mother’s care process of reting herself with the baby.
Although breastmilk does not appear to pass the baby with a virus, you can still consider milk milking and feeding your baby in that way as an option.
I’m pretty worried about myself and my baby. What can I do?
Our dear mother, as the My Sweety Baby family, we’d like to hug you and comfort you, but there’s something we need to hug right now🥰
