About the Online Class:
A premature birth is a great danger to a baby’s life and health and is the primary cause of hospitalizations of newborns. New research has led to breakthroughs in identifying the nutritional, immunological and inflammatory processes which can cause preterm birth and is providing insight in how to prevent it. Preterm birth is linked to some specific problems such as pre-labor rupture of membranes, pre-eclampsia, hypertension, intrauterine growth restriction, cervical inflammation, and infections with Group B strep yeast and bacterial vaginosis. Fortunately these conditions can be detected through low technology methods and the remedies are widely available. With knowledge, we can prevent most premature births.We are learning about the role of the microbiome and how to create a healthy vaginal flora to reduce the risk of early labor. Gail will share what we can do as care providers and as mothers, to help babies grow healthily in the womb until term.
This is going to be an information packed class that you won’t want to miss!
