Is a Natural Birth Recommended After a Cesarean Section?

Nowadays more and more women are having children by C-section. Cesarean section is a preferred method whenever doctors think that the health of the mother or her baby is at risk.

It allows the medical team to get the little one into the world in less time and with fewer complications at that time, than a vaginal delivery. Some women have a C-section when they give birth to their first child. This raises a number of issues afterwards.

For example, if the couple decides to have another child, what are the risks of doing a vaginal birth? Both doctors and mothers are concerned about the stress that their abdomen would be subjected to during birth. Men are concerned about the health risks associated with a natural birth after a woman has been through a major surgery of that nature.

The womb must go through several changes and a lot of pressure is put on the muscles when the mother has to push a baby out. This is why several doctors are unwilling to have a mother give birth vaginally after having a C-section or a myomectomy.

A vaginal delivery is not generally recommended after this procedure in roughly 50% of patients because of the risk to the mother and child. Doctors may do a “trial of labor” and only do another C-section if it appears that a vaginal delivery will not be the better choice.

High Off Nutmeg – This Spice’s Essential Oils Make It Operate As a Drug

Some people have reported that consuming a whole nutmeg produces effects similar to what one would experience after drinking alcohol. Apparently, the effects aren’t noticed as quickly, as the nutmeg can take as long as five hours to make its presence felt. Also, nutmeg delivers an unpleasant experience, which probably explains its lack of popularity as a narcotic.

Nutmeg is a member of the Myristicaceae family. It is shaped like an egg, only smaller. It is about an inch long and is very popular as a spice. It can vary in color from brown to grayish-brown. The nutmeg tree is an evergreen. It is native to the East Indies.

Freshly ground nutmeg for baking or drinks can be produced by using a nutmeg grater or a nutmeg mill. The nutmeg mill produces nutmeg in large quantities. The nutmeg mill also stores the freshly ground nutmeg easily. Even two tablespoons of nutmeg will produce a noticeable effect.

Nutmeg contains myristic acid, which causes its narcotic effects. Taken in large amounts, nutmeg can produce the feeling of ‘cottonmouth’ that marijuana users sometimes experience. Myristic acid is white in color. It is crystalline and fatty and is used as a food additive and is also added to soaps and cosmetics.

Through time, nutmeg has been used to enhance dreams and as an aphrodisiac. In fact, in the early 20th century, some young women used large quantities of it to induce abortion and became delirious afterwards. Nutmeg can also produce bloodshot eyes and feelings of unease.
