#Baby #Health : Read this Very Educative #Article on ‘DELAYED CORD CLAMPING’


Reposted from @monmartt_kids DELAYED CORD CLAMPING 💫
“After baby is born we usually think of the umbilical cord as a relic – part a life support system that is no longer needed. But the reality is that the cord has one last job to do, and it’s a big one.

The cord and placenta are a sort of external circulation system: one vein carries oxygen and nutrient-rich blood from the placenta to the baby, and two arteries carry carbon dioxide rich blood and waste away from baby to the placenta for purification. When baby is born, about 1/3 of its blood is in the external part of the circulation system, but quickly makes it’s way to the baby via the umbilical cord. Unless of course, the cord is cut before the transfer is complete.

Delayed umbilical cord clamping (DCC) allows more blood to transfer from the placenta to the baby, increasing the baby’s blood volume by up to a third.

The iron in the blood increases the newborn’s iron storage, which is vital for healthy brain development.

Some new studies have found that DCC can have a positive effect on both preterm and full-term babies. These benefits include an increase in placental transfusion, a 60% increase of RBCs and a 30% increase in neonatal blood volume.

Another advantage of DCC is the decreased risk of iron deficiency anemia.
The extra blood at birth helps the baby to cope better with the transition from life in the womb, where everything is provided for them by the placenta and the mother, to the outside world. Their lungs get more blood so that the exchange of oxygen into the blood can take place smoothly.

Delayed clamping also results in an infusion of stem cells, which play an essential role in the development of the immune, respiratory, cardiovascular, and central nervous systems, among many other functions. The concentration of stem cells in fetal blood is higher than at any other time of life. ICC [immediate cord clamping] leaves nearly one-third of these critical cells in the placenta.

Stem cells may also help to repair any brain damage the baby might have suffered during a difficult birth”Reposted from @milkitivity_ ✨𝐖𝐎𝐌𝐁 𝐖𝐄𝐃𝐍𝐄𝐒𝐃𝐀𝐘✨

from @chrissyteigen This is me and my body, just yesterday. Even though I’m no longer pregnant, every glance in the mirror reminds me of what could have been. And I have no idea why i still have this bump, honestly. It’s frustrating. But I’m proud of where this entire journey took my body and mind in other ways. I love being pregnant, so so much, and I’m sad I never will be again. But I am lucky to have two amazing little ones who are transforming into big little people more and more every single day.

#Miraculous : A 104-year-old WWII #Veteran beats #Covid19


from @balleralert 104-Year-Old WWII Vet Released From Hospital After Beating COVID-19⁠

Blogged by @pistolwhippedya ⁠

Won’t he do it! An elderly man won his battle against the coronavirus as he was released from the hospital days before his 104th birthday.⁠

MajorWooten is a #WWII survivor who was admitted into the Madison Hospital in Madison, #Alabama last week after he tested positive for the virus.⁠

He was cleared to go home and recover by doctors on December 2. As he was wheeled out, he was sent off with a friendly farewell by hospital staff that sang “happy birthday.”⁠

“We are just so blessed to have him home with us… and he is going to make it through it,” said his granddaughter Holly McDonald, who also told ABC News that Wooten is doing well.⁠

Wooten, is now a great grandfather, but before that he was a private first class in the U.S. Army. He helped rebuild trains overseas during the war. This isn’t his first time being put in the spotlight either, last year Wooten joined “World News Tonight on a trip back to the Normandy beaches in honor of the 75th anniversary of D-Day.⁠

“Even at 104-years-old, he is fighting off this coronavirus just like so many other things that he’s fought off in his life,” said Hogan. “He served our country and we are so grateful for that. It’s just a reminder that every day we need to wake up and fight coronavirus just as hard as Mr. Wooten,” nurse Shelby Hogan said of him.

#Health : #KekePalmer reveals she has been #suffering from #PolyCysticOvarianSyndrome without knowing it


from @keke Hey you guys, for some of you this may be TMI, but for me my platform has always been used for things much greater than me. Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome has been attacking me from the inside out my entire life and I had no idea. My acne has been so bad that people in my field offered to pay for me to get it fixed. I tried EVERYTHING. I did Accutane TWICE. People say drink water, have a better diet, but I did all that, I ate all the “right” things, my blood tests were fine. But it took ME taking a personal look into my family that has a history of diabetes and obesity, to understand what was ACTUALLY happening with me. And unfortunately doctors are people and if you don’t “look the part” they may not think that’s your problem. They may not even suggest it if you “look healthy” whatever that means! I came to a doctor in tears once and all they offered was a measles vaccine… Exactly.

I’m posting this to say that it’s okay and we can help ourselves. My skin has made me sad many nights but I do not give up on myself. I know this is not me and my body has been looking for help. I do not have a medical degree but I did the research and took what I learned to a doctor and that led them to a proper diagnosis. I’m not saying trust web md for everything haha but what I am saying is no one can help us like we can help ourselves.

This especially makes me sad because my family struggled for years and no doctor could help them, they actually mislead them and just took their money. It’s only because of what my family sacrificed that allows me to even have the resources to share the information I’m sharing with you! Their fight out of poverty gave me a better life and I just want to share what I learn 🙏🏾

The least harmful thing PCOS can bring is acne. To all the people struggling with this please know you’re not alone and that you are still so fucking fine! MY ACNE AINT NEVER STOPPED ME. But we don’t have accept this. Now I can really help KEKE! And I love her so it’s ON.

Pray for me on this journey and I will pray for you too. I’m not afraid to show myself to the world and you shouldn’t be either ❤️

#IrokoTV #CEO Jason Njoku and Wife Mary Njoku test #positive for #Covid19 and blame it on their #Enemies


Nigerians and the enmity mindset. Why will any who tests positive for Covid19 go ahead to Blake it in his enemies? Leave it to Nigerians and their ‘Someone is behind it ‘ mentality. I wish the husband and wife a quick recovery from Covid19. I thought the Country had moved past the era of testing positive for Covid19.

Reposted from @maryremmynjoku Every test in our life makes us bitter or better, Problems come to break or make us. Choice is yours. Are you a Victim or a Victor? Choose wisely.
Good morning ✌️.

Too good not to share 💕 As we grow older, and hopefully wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a $1,000 or a $10 watch — they both tell the same time. Whether we carry a $500 or a $50 wallet/handbag — the amount of money inside is the same. Whether we drink a bottle of $100 or $10 wine — the hangover is the same. Whether the house we live in is 100 or 1,000 sq. ft. — loneliness is the same . You will realize, your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world. SIX UNDENIABLE FACTS OF LIFE: . 1. Don't educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be Happy. So when they grow up they will know the value of things not the price. 2: “Eat your food as your medicines. Otherwise you have to eat medicines as your food." . 3: The One who loves you will never leave you because even if there are 100 reasons to give up he or she will find 1 reason to hold on. 4: There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few really understand it. 5. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, You have to give as much love as you can back to the world. 6: If you just want to Walk Fast, Walk Alone! But if you want to Walk Far, Walk Together! . SIX BEST DOCTORS IN THE WORLD: 1. Sunlight 2. Rest 3. Exercise 4. Diet 5. Self Confidence and 6. Friends! Maintain them in all stages of Life and enjoy a healthy life. The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for. – unknown If you agree, share it!
