Bring a Change- curb poverty🌻

This month February is all about love spending on luxuries all that you want to give your partner,the love of ur life but have u even thought there are people who are not able to get the basic necessities in life do you even realise they sleep empty stomach every night, I believe I as a community as a society could create an impact on these social issues, and one such I would like to address is poverty.

The world’s poor are at disproportionate risk of torture, arrest, early death and domestic violence, but their civil and political rights are being airbrushed out of the picture.

The Primary causes of poverty are unemployment, poor management of resources, under education, mental illness.

Poverty increases :-
⚠The risk of Slum-dwellers, who make up a third of the world’s urban population, live in a poverty no better, if not worse, than rural people, who are the traditional focus of the poverty in the developing world.
⚠Many women become victims of trafficking, as a means of survival and economic desperation.
⚠Deterioration of living conditions can often compel children to abandon school to contribute to the family income, putting them at risk of being exploited.

People in lower socio-economic classes are much more likely to get killed, tortured or experience an invasion of their privacy, and are far less likely to realize their right to vote, or otherwise participate in the political process.

When asked why young people joined gangs and rebel groups in half a dozen countries, two thirds of the respondents said that unemployment was their main reason, only one tenth cited a belief in the cause. so to totally remove poverty we have to get together n help n support the poor,provide jobs employ them,support pay equity, provide medical aids, education n help to maintain a proper n equal work atmosphere with proper wage system n paid sick leaves n as an individual we should make sure not to look at a poor wit an eye of less privileged,help them financially Wen required try to help dem get education or initiate educating them giving or sharing your knowledge free of cost,

voluntarily conduct free education classes for d poor or lower income groups, as a doctor make sure to conduct free health checkups, health camps for the less privileged n also as a employed person give them guidance on how to use their strength with capability n increase their income…

Hope this post would actually bring a change in the society n the way people look at the ones with less privileges n become more responsible towards helping out n reaching out the ones in need.

Cleft Awareness…🌼

🌌Hola peeps how are you all? I’ve been busy with my baby Tas 1st bday preps and celebrations(full blog post will be up soon😊) Today’s blog post is abt Cleft in babies, before 3 years I’ve not known wat Cleft was until someone in my family got diagnosed of it, Are u aware wat cleft is? Cleft are openings or splits in the upper lip, the roof of the mouth (palate) or both. Cleft lip and cleft palate result when facial structures that are developing in an unborn baby don’t close completely.

Cleft lip and cleft palate are among the most common birth defects. They most commonly occur as isolated birth defects but are also associated with many inherited genetic conditions or syndromes.

Firstly we thought tat this will b cured naturally as the baby grows the tissues will form n things will b fine💮 but after doing a lot of research we got to kno tat it occurs one in 700 babies annually, and is the fourth most common birth defect in the U.S and More than 1 million cases per year in India n needs a medical attention and requires a medical diagnosis.

We felt like why this happened to our baby wat was the cause of it, went to several doctors n got consulted n finally concluded

📌these are due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

📌Another cause may be related to a medication a mother may have taken during her pregnancy. Some drugs may cause cleft lip and cleft palate. Among them: anti-seizure/anticonvulsant drugs, acne drugs containing Accutane, and methotrexate, a drug commonly used for treating cancer, arthritis, and psoriasis.

📌And also due to d consumption of tobacco and Alcohol.

Its DIAGNOSIS is done through a Prenatal ULTRASOUND in an unborn child. If the clefting has not been detected in an ultrasound prior to the baby’s birth, a physical exam of the mouth, nose, and palate confirms the presence of cleft lip or cleft palate after a child’s birth.

The child in our family had to undergo many problems due to clefting like,
EATING problems as food and liquids can pass from the mouth back through the nose, EAR👂 infections as they are more prone to fluid build-up in the middle ear. If left untreated, ear infections can cause hearing loss, SPEECH👄 problems as the voices don’t carry well, the voice may take on a nasal sound, and the speech may be difficult to understand, DENTAL Problems as number of cavities and often have missing, extra, malformed, or displaced teeth🕊.

TREATMENT:
Having a baby born with a cleft can be upsetting, but cleft lip and cleft palate can be corrected. In most babies, a series of surgeries can restore normal function and achieve a more normal appearance with minimal scarring.

A cleft lip may require one or two surgeries depending on the extent of the repair needed. Surgery to repair a cleft lip usually occurs in the first few months of life and is recommended within the first 12 months of life. Surgery to repair a cleft palate is recommended within the first 18 months of life or earlier if possible.Repair of a cleft palate often requires multiple surgeries over the course of 18 years. The initial surgery creates a functional palate, reduces the chances that fluid will develop in the middle ears, and aids in the proper development of the teeth and facial bones.

Many children will need additional surgical procedures as they get older. Surgical repair can improve the look and appearance of a child’s face and might also improve breathing, hearing, and speech and language development. Children born with orofacial clefts might need other types of treatments and services, such as special dental or orthodontic care or speech therapy.

After all tat research work on cleft, There are certain things to be taken care of during pregnancy.No wonder why our grannies say to take proper care of us during pregnancy.
📍Cleft occurs in pregnant women who smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol or take certain medications.
📍Having diabetes.There is some evidence that women diagnosed with diabetes before pregnancy may have an increased risk of having a baby with a cleft lip.
📍Being obese during pregnancy. There is some evidence that babies born to obese women may have increased risk of cleft lip and palate.

FOLIC ACID Supplements:
I remember d time Wen I was pregnant how my mums(Mom n MIL) put a lot of emphasis on folic acid supplements, i hated taking medicines during pregnancy but they wre so keen tat tey used to enquire my husband did i take tat particular tablet or not.. YES, FOLIC ACID IS THAT IMPORTANT!! During d initial stages of pregnancy it’s important to note that all the birth defects happen during the first 28 days of the pregnancy, which is crucial, because this is the time when the woman mostly does not even know that she’s pregnant! This is the reason why most women who are of child-bearing age should make sure to consume enough folic acid, especially if a pregnancy is being planned.
Folic acid works to form healthy red blood cells, which are imperative for good health. A lack of folic acid in the body can lead to Folate-deficiency n causes birth defects in the baby. Folic acid reduces the risk of anemia, spine disorders, pre-mature growth ,poor growth in womb n even cleft palate. Proper intake of folic acid supplement provides a healthy body to d mother n her baby in the womb.

PREVENTION For the second baby:
After a baby is born with a cleft, parents are understandably concerned about the possibility of having another child with the same condition. While many cases of cleft lip and cleft palate can’t be prevented but can lower your risk:

📝Consider genetic counseling.
📝Take prenatal vitamins like Folic acid, which is actually really important during pregnancy.
📝Don’t use tobacco or alcohol. Use of alcohol or tobacco during pregnancy increases the risk of having a baby with a birth defect.
📝Avoid Smoking―Women who smoke during pregnancy are more likely to have a baby with an orofacial cleft than women who do not smoke.

Understanding the factors that are more common among babies with a birth defect will help us learn more about the causes n one such work of http://anamayaindopacific.org/ and their FB page – https://www.facebook.com/Anamayaindopacific/ is so commendable whose vision is to create a CLEFT FREE INDIA.

My baby is not chubby!!

Hello everyone, it’s been a while I wanted to share this, and I’m sure many of u cld relate to this..😀 So before tat I wld like to ask u all a few questions..How do You feel when ppl around say, maybe your friends, relatives or any random person you meet say, ur baby looks weak, she isn’t chubby… How should you feel??.. If u ask me, I feel really terrible, I worry way too much on their questions..

I ask myself, why is my baby lean? Am I not feeding her properly? Does she require any extra vitamins or proteins? Am I not lactating enuf? Am I lacking behind something?… I felt, i purposely want her to look so, I intentionally don’t give her food to eat.. Is that true?

.
NO… SO HERE’S WHAT I HAVE TO SAY:
◾My baby is way too active and burns more calories than she consumes, should I worry how she looks..?? NO.
◾My baby is reaching all milestones, should I worry about her weight in kg/pounds..? NO.
◾My baby is very fussy to eat, should I crib about it every single day? NO.
.
.
Every baby is different and born with different body structure, please don’t worry and start comparing your baby with others.. Not every baby has to be chubby and fat.
.
.
I never spared my paediatrician too wit this question😂 Wen asked him y baby Tas is not chubby or bubbly, he understood my eagerness to kno, so he took it in another way n asked a few questions,
👶Is ur baby cranky d whole day..?
👶Does she take her feed properly..?
👶Does she pass her motions normally..?
.
N tadaa,tats it!!he says ur baby is healthy… It is not necessary to make ur baby look chubby, all u shld b concerned n worry abt is tat to make ur baby healthy n her immune system strong… So next time if someone says ur baby looks weak/lean just tell dem THANKS FO NOTICING,my baby is healthy n I take care of her well.. I kno her better than u (sure v mumma knows better about our kids)😎
.
.

PS: Do follow this mantra…

Every baby is healthy n beautiful in their own sizes and forms, so tell ur baby every single day you are beautiful and healthy and I love you the way you are…🌼🌌

To d new mommies abt Breastfeed

Hello all…❤ so how y’all doin..? Btw Happiee breastfeeding week☺ to those spl mommies who chose to breastfeed their babies; breastfeeding is a super amazing way to connect or share a spl bond wit ur baby.. Breastfeeding is not only gud fo d baby but fo d mothers too as it decreases d chances of cervical cancer n many such life-threatening diseases. A baby who is breastfed is found to b more healthy than d formula fed ones, mother’s milk provides lots of nutrients n antibiotics to d baby which helps in strengthening n in d growth of d baby. IMG_20180814_231919I personally as a mother prefer breastfeeding over any formula milk, I exclusively breastfed my baby till 6 months, ppl used to advice me a lot make her eat badam, ghee n many such things but I was very clear no means no❌..So I wld like to share a few benefits of breastfeeding for all our new mommies whose first concern is their baby😊:-

👶Improved face muscle development through sucking.
👶Changes in d taste of breast milk prepares them to accept variety of solid foods.
👶Less risk of respiratory infections, wheezing, pneumonia.
👶Gud IQ level
👶Easy for a baby to digest n doesn’t cause indigestion or stomach pain.
👶High visual acuity in breatsfed babies
👶Less diarrhea, n fewer gastrointestinal infections
👶Strengthens d immune system
👶Responds better to vaccinations.
👶No risk of childhood cancer n other acute infections.

So as a mother I wld definitely recommend u new mommies to breastfeed ur babies atleast till 6 months n simultaneously take gud care of ur health too. Drink lots of fluids, milk, semolina,fish, fresh vegetables n fruits n as i always say stay healthy,happiee n positive…🤗🤗☺
