Prevent Brain Injury to Infants During Pregnancy, Labor & Delivery

Traditional birthing classes, best selling books and medical professionals talk about the technical—and even loving—aspects of childbirth, but I have never seen one mention the serious complications that can happen and what parents need to know to prevent infant brain injuries. This article provides a beginning for this information.

Is a Gynecologist or Internal Medicine Specialist Best for Me?

I am 4-5 weeks pregnant and my doctor is specialized in internal medicine. Once I told her that I took two pregnancy tests and that I missed my period she asked me to come for a blood tests and to start taking folic acid.

My doctor is very good doctor but since I am pregnant, I should switch to a gynecologist or should I continue with her?

Thank you.
