Maternal Depression

Maternal depression is a risk factor for cognitive and socio development in children. Maternal depression mainly occurs after the baby birth. It can be mainly due t the etiological factors such as  Poverty, Marital Conflict, lack of natural resources.  Post partum disorder is serious illness beginning with hallucinations, illusions and impairment in functioning. The association of maternal behaviour, depression and child outcomes are complex. Research suggests that poor Maternal health may be a risk factor among the young children.

Transmission of Diseases from Mother to Child

Mother to Child Transmission is called vertical transmission or perinatal transmission. It occurs when HIV is transmitted from mother to child during pregnancy, labor and delivery. Many Infections can be transmitted from mother to child which include Congenital Infections, Perinatal and Postnatal.  For a HIV woman, there will be a chance of spreading the disease from mother to child .A new drug was discovered which prevents the spread of disease from mother to child.

Breast Diseases

Fibrocystic breasts are characterised by lumpiness and discomfort in the breast. The lumpiness is due to breast cysts. The condition mainly affects women and is the most common cause of lumpy breasts. It is very common and benign condition. Hormonal variation is the major factor for fibrocystic breast disease. Breast self examinations are not recommended for the patients who are not at a risk of breast cancer. However, women aged from 40-50 years have to consult doctor and should have mammogram once in two years.

General Care Taken for Mother and Child

Mother needs to take care of herself and the baby so as to rebuild the strength. Mother has to learn that the babies have different biological clocks. A mother's body has undergone many changes during pregnancy, as well as with the birth of her baby. She needs to heal and recover from pregnancy and childbirth. In addition to rest, all mothers need to maintain a healthy diet to promote healing and recovery. Folic acid, Vitamin D supplements are helpful for Mother and Child in nutrition. Physical activity of mother during pregnancy can improve the Child Health. Smoking and drinking must be avoided during pregnancy.

Physiological Changes during Pregnancy

Pregnancy is associated with normal physiological changes. Some of the changes are increase in maternal blood volume, Changes in Cardiovascular system, Changes in the respiratory system, Renal and Gastro Intestinal System. Drug metabolism is altered due to elevated secondary sex hormones. Increased estrogen levels, Progesteron can be significantly detected during pregnancy. Some women experience the symtoms of Hypotension. Pregnancy is diabetogenic. Insulin levels increases during pregnancy and the levels fall down after pregnancy.

Care to be Taken for New Borns

Taking care of a newborn is both the simplest and most difficult thing you have probably ever done in your life. Know that your baby will sleep much of the time. Newborns generally sleep up to 20 hours a day the first few weeks. The sense of responsibility, particularly after years of being responsible only for yourself, can be overwhelming. Before handling a new born baby, it should be noted that the person should wash the hands as they are more susceptible to infections because they have poor immune system. They should not be shaken vigorously for making them sleep as it causes bleeding in the brain and even death.

Caesarean Section

A Cesarean section(C-section) is surgery to deliver a baby. The baby is taken out through the mother's abdomen. The surgery is relatively safe for mother and baby. Still, it is major surgery and carries risks. It also takes longer to recover from a C-section than from vaginal birth. After healing, the incision may leave a weak spot in the wall of the uterus. This could cause problems with an attempted vaginal birth later. C- section is somewhat riskier than the vaginal delivery. Injuries to the bladder and bowel are rare.

Post Partum Haemorrhage

Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is the leading cause of maternal mortality. All women who carry a pregnancy beyond 20 weeks’ gestation are at risk for this disease. Uterine atony is a failure of the uterine myometrial fibers to contract and retract. This is the most important cause of PPH and usually occurs immediately following delivery of the baby, up to 4 hours after the delivery.

Asphyxia in Neonatals

Perinatal asphyxia is the name for when your child doesn’t breathe normally just before, during, or after birth. Asphyxia is a condition that describes a decreased or discontinued level of oxygen, and perinatal is the period that describes just before, during, and after delivery. Perinatal asphyxia, or neonatal asphyxia, is a birth injury it is an initial birth injury that–if gone untreated–could expose your child to a whole network of related birth injuries.

Maternal Psychology

Maternal psychology aims to study the transition to motherhood, or “matrescence,” as a unique developmental phase within the female lifespan trajectory. Qualitative and quantitative research methods are used to examine aspects of adaptation to pregnancy and parenting.  Individual differences in psychological strengths that increase resilience are measured alongside clinical indicators of risk for psychological distress.

Preterm Birth

A preterm birth is a birth that takes place more than three weeks before the baby is due. In other words, a premature birth is one that occurs before the start of the 37th week of pregnancy. Normally, a pregnancy usually lasts about 40 weeks. Premature birth gives the baby less time to develop in the womb. Premature babies, especially those born earliest, often have complicated medical problems.

Late Pregnancy Issues

Preeclampsia, fetal growth restriction (undernourished baby) and spontaneous preterm birth are the major complications of late pregnancy. They are leading causes of illness and death in mothers and newborn babies. Fetal growth restriction is usually due to placental problems leading to inadequate nutrition of the baby and overall affects 1 in 10 pregnancies.

Newborn Illness

Newborns are at increased risk for infections, especially during the first 7 days of life. The most common causes of neonatal deaths are preterm birth complications, newborn infections and birth asphyxia. Delay in identification of the problem or in providing the correct management may be fatal.

Hormonal Changes during Pregnancy

Pregnant women experience sudden and dramatic increases in estrogen and progesterone, as well as changes in the amount and function of a number of other hormones. These changes can not only affect mood, they can also create the “glow” of pregnancy, significantly aid in the development of the fetus, and alter the physical impact of exercise and physical activity on the body.

Major Disease Statistics

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2016 then, impact factor = Y/X
