Preparing For Labor & Delivery
There are some recommendations for pregnant women. Dr. Anna Suarez Davis, Obstetrician and Gynecologist at Baptist Hospital of Miami, says exercise is a huge benefit, because it helps them to keep their posture and strength it. Another tip is to minimize weight gain; no more than 25 to 35 pound weight gain is the recommended amount.
Having a doula is an option to have some support during delivery. "Doula is a labor support person, they are not medical professionals, they don't have training, but they are wonderful support systems for our patients," says Suarez.
