What is Fentanyl? It is a drug that is a powerful pain reliever (narcotic). It may be offered to you to help you cope better with the pain of labour. Some women say it takes the edge off the pain and helps them to cope better. It will take the most of the pain away but not all of it.
Health and Nutrition
Whether you are pregnant or have just had a baby there will be a lot of advice regarding your health and nutrition. Regular check ups and visits to your doctor or midwife are important parts of your pregnancy. How many calories should you be consuming? Do you need more calories if you are breastfeeding? Can you eat fish and how much? You may succumb to your cravings but as long as you eat a well-balance diet and get some exercise you will be able to stay in great shape throughout your pregnancy and get back into your pre-maternity clothes after.
