Chores to Forgo: Tips for a Healthy Pregnancy
(http://ow.ly/C3dp30mG603)

If you're expecting, it's time to rethink your chore list. Due to the nature of harsh bathroom cleaners, it's advisable for you to skip the bathroom cleaning. If you must clean the bathroom, wear a face mask and switch to green or non-toxic cleaners. Another surprisingly chore you need to reassign: changing the kitty litter due to the risk of toxoplasmosis.

(http://ow.ly/ctZU30mG602)

A miscarriage can be heartbreaking, and it's important to take care of yourself during this time. Your doctor may examine your uterus to make sure you are healing, but it's equally important to take care of your mental health too! Don't underestimate the importance of support, which can come in the form of your partner, your doctor, a support group, or an online support group.

Is a VBAC Right For You?
(http://ow.ly/QM3w30mG601)

Many factors affect your ability to be cleared as a candidate for a VBAC. One factor is how recent your last C-section was. Ideally, most providers like to see that at least 18-24 months have elapsed since your last C-section. This ensures that your uterus and incision area has had plenty of time to heal. This length of time also reduces your risk of uterine rupture.

Tips for Managing Endometriosis
(http://ow.ly/G0MR30mG600)

Studies show that consuming omega 3 fatty acid-rich food can help ease your symptoms of endometriosis. Omega 3 fatty acids help to reduce inflammation, which is why this nutrient helps relieve pain. Good sources of omega 3 fatty acids include fish oil, fatty fish like salmon, chia seeds, and walnuts. You might also find that peppermint or ginger tea ease other symptoms of endometriosis (e.g., nausea).

Hand Washing—A Powerful Antidote to Illness
(http://ow.ly/59W630mG5ZW)

If you haven't already, make a habit of washing your hands. It's easy to forget or dismiss but it's incredibly important to wash up—especially during the winter months when the flu and colds seem to be the most prevalent. Do you know when you should be washing your hands? Yes, after using the restroom is a must, but it's also suggested any time before you are eating foods with your hands, after petting your household animals, and if you are out and about with friends.

Are Fibroids Affecting Your Quality of Life? A Hysterectomy May Help
(http://ow.ly/P2rU30mG5ZV)

Uterine fibroids can cause heavy periods, but they can also severe pelvic pain, constipation, and pain during intercourse. Although a hysterectomy isn't the first line of defense against fibroids, it can be a good solution for severe fibroids that affect your ability to enjoy life. If you aren't ready for a hysterectomy, you might be a good candidate for a myomectomy, which is when just the ford is removed.
