It is common practice for pregnant mothers to be warned not to press too early when they are born. However, there is no difference between being a mom when she feels it or when she looks for it - a new research suggests.In practice, it is recommended to press only during the last stage of labor, during which time it is worth keeping the stimulus in order to make the process easier and safer. However, according to a study by Washington University School of Medicine, there is no difference in the outcome when giving birth to the second stage, when the baby is about 10 inches away, "if you are trying to become a pregnant mother." The study enrolled 2,400 women, all of whom were pregnant with their first children. All mothers received epidural anesthesia. At birth, when they reached 10 cm, they were randomly divided into two groups. One group was allowed to press at any time, while the other group was asked not to press for 60 minutes.When can a pregnant woman start to press? The results were almost identical: those in the "immediate-depression" group had a vaginal birth of 85.9 percent, whereas in the "depressed-depression" group, this ratio was 86.5 percent. At the same time, those who were able to immediately begin to exert pressure had a somewhat lower rate of complications, for example, less frequent infections or severe postpartum bleeding. And, on average, birth took 30 minutes shorter than those who were allowed to put on immediate pressure. "Parenting is a very intense, stressful process," he said. Alison Cahill, one of the authors of the study. "Knowledge of our research results will enable nurses and doctors to communicate more efficiently." (Via)You may also be interested in:
