Pregnancy Complications

Rh Factor

When the mother is Rh-negative and the father is Rh-positive, the fetus can inherit the Rh factor from the father. This makes the fetus Rh-positive too. Problems can arise when the fetus's blood has the Rh factor and the mother's blood does not.

How Can I Get Rid of a Yeast Infection?

Cynthia Flynn's picture


Dear Midwife,
I have had a yeast infection throughout my entire pregnancy. My doctor has tested me for STD's and all are negative. He has prescribed metro gel to me. I have used this every few months. I am now on my 32 week and am using this prescription every other week.

Is there something stronger I can use or something I can change or do differently to help?
