While talking to your doctor and reading pregnancy related literature, you may come across a number of terms and expressions you never heard of before. And since most pregnant women automatically think the worst when they hear a strange sounding term, you can experience a great deal of stress which in turn can negatively influence your baby just because you are poorly informed. To help you avoid the unnecessary stress, our Basic Terms/Knowledgebase offers explanation of common terms and lots of useful information about a variety of pregnancy topics such as pregnancy hormone levels, mucus plug, Braxton Hicks contractions, fetal movement, dilation, amniotic sac and other things you should be familiar with if you want to understand how you and your baby are doing, and how your pregnancy is progressing.
By informing yourself about common terms and expressions, you will not only avoid the unnecessary stress but you will also avoid a potential misunderstanding. Rather than asking their doctor for additional explanation, many women try to interpret the meaning of a strange sounding term from the context or/and browse the web when they get home. However, it is not difficult to misinterpret the meaning or not remembering the expression correctly which in turn can make you think that you are not receiving appropriate prenatal care.
Due to the above mentioned reasons, we cannot stress enough how important is to be well informed. So please feel free to use our Knowledgebase and be sure to ask your doctor for additional explanation if there is anything you are unsure about.
