This week on The Mommy Labor Nurse Podcast you’ll hear an Ask Me Anything style episode, where I give in-depth answers to a few labor and delivery questions left on the podcast hotline.
I’m covering questions about extra placental lobes, timing an epidural to potentially avoid blood pressure-related side effects, postpartum hemorrhages (particularly if you’ve had one before!), and if there are any specific things that moms can do in their second pregnancies to prepare for birth.
If you have a burning question about pregnancy, birth, or postpartum that you’d like me to answer on the show, all you have to do is call 919-213-8719 and leave a voicemail!
If you enjoy episodes where it’s just me answering questions about labor and delivery (and more!), I recommend listening to Episode 168 next.
Just as a disclaimer, next week’s episode will be about a very triggering topic: black maternal death. It’s an extremely important episode that I’m very proud to put out, although it’s a heavy one. So stay tuned!
Questions covered in this episode:
- Is it normal to have some extra lobes on the placenta?
- What complications can the additional lobes on the placenta cause?
- Is there a better timing for epidurals to help avoid a C-section?
- How to reverse the blood pressure drop after you receive an epidural?
- What causes postpartum hemorrhage?
- What can you do to prepare for a potential postpartum hemorrhage?
- What can you do during your second pregnancy that might be beneficial to you and your children?
Have an even better birth!
