This examination is completely painless for you and your baby.

Hemorrhoids

I have hemorrhoids, what should I do?

Pregnancy can lead to hemorrhoids. They are due to the compression of the uterus on the large blood vessels, a hormone (progesterone) and constipation. Hemorrhoids can be painful and can result in bleeding, but they do not represent a risk to your baby.

Talk to your physician.

Practical advice:

  • Avoid constipation
  • Your physician may prescribe a hemorrhoid cream
  • Avoid prolonged standing

Hiccups

My baby hiccups often, what can I do?

Hiccups in babies are common and normal. They are due to feeding too rapidly from the breast or bottle. Caused by a spasm of the diaphragm, they often disappear on their own. If they persist, you can put your baby back to the breast briefly or give him/her a little water.

Weaning

I have to return to work, what should I do about breastfeeding?

Returning to work depends on your contract and your employer. Depending on your wishes or your options, you can continue breastfeeding, for example the morning and evening milk can be stored. You can express your milk and keep it in the fridge to provide meals for your baby during the day. The alternative is weaning, either by spacing feedings to reduce milk secretion, or by using appropriate drugs. Prepare for your return to work by contacting a breastfeeding professional.
