Immuniteit na geboorte
Hi Dr.

Wanneer kan ek verwag dat my immuniteit sal terugkeer na normaal na my baba se geboorte? Ek is nou 37 weke swanger, en het gehoor dat mens se imminuteit gedurende swangerskap versleg, en met die risiko' s van varkgriep vermy ek soveel as moontlik mense deur eerder nou by die huis te bly as om erens heen te gaan.

Ook, indien dit sou lyk asof my ' mucus plug'  uitgekom het, moet ek onmiddellik hospitaal toe gaan? Net sodat ek voorbereid kan wees!

Dankie

Tania

The pregnancy changes are back to normal 6 weeks after delivery.
You do not have to go to hospital if you lose the mucus plug, only if you have contractions or the waters break.
