Is it safe to… during pregnancy?

I know when I was pregnant with my two daughters I often came across this question during my 9 months. Is it safe…?

This article from answers many of the questions you may have.

Pergnancy Brain is REAL!! Science backs up confused Preggo’s everywhere.

Your skin is glowing, you look radiant, but somehow you feel a little…dim. Uh-oh! Maybe you’re starting to worry just a bit: does being pregnant make you dumber? Of course not…but scientific research published in the American Journal of Neuroradiologyhas shown a definite link between brain cell volumes and pregnancy.

One of the symptoms of pregnancy that comes as a surprise to first-timers is the effect hormones can have on brain cells. While your women friends who’ve been through the pregnancy drill may warn you about the discomforts of pregnancy and gleefully share terrifying stories of giving birth, more often than not they’ll neglect to mention that you’re about to become more forgetful.

Research shows that the flood of hormones released during pregnancy actually decrease brain cell volume in women. The result? Pregnant women forget things more easily, so they are frequently less organized and more frustrated in the initial months of carrying. For normally responsible women, this can be especially annoying: losing their keys, forgetting appointments, and generally feeling like a scatterbrain. The good news is the brain cells do come back after giving birth, returning to their normal higher volume.

This pregnancy symptom is actually very common, and medically there’s not much that can be done about it. The best way to combat it is to always put necessary items like your cell and keys in the same place so you’ll easily find them, and to write notes and reminders to stay on track with your must-do’s. There’s nothing wrong with making lists when you need a little memory boost! Just like morning sickness and swollen ankles, pregnancy-induced forgetfulness will eventually pass.

Reviews and New Arrivals

I can not thank you enough for being the person to introduce Sean and I and our parents to our little baby boy.

I could never have imagined that this would be as great of an experience as it was. I will never forget the moment you congratulated us on our son, those words left me speechless in the best way possible.

To have a glimpse of our little guy and what he’s been up to in there was so amazing to see and I never thought it would mean so much to me.  He looked like a tiny version of Sean’s face and for that, I now look forward even more to meeting our little guy.

Thank you again, I know I have promoted you in the past but now experiencing this first hand I will be sure to keep telling every woman I know what a great experience this was.

The way the office is set up so that our parents could be there without interfering with the moment for Sean and I is well planned and the perfect set up for someone like myself who wanted the moment to still feel private between my husband and I but also wanted to share this with our very loving and very excited first time grandparents.

I feel like most office visits while pregnant can be overwhelming or make a pregnant woman feel anxious. This was the first visit during pregnancy where the focus is on the joy of being pregnant, this is a true gift you give to women and something I now feel is worth doing even just to gave a positive and exciting connection between parent and baby at this stage
