Ultrasound scans use sound waves which are considered safe for mother and baby. These scans are commonly used to monitor the growth and well being of the growing baby. Dating scans are usually performed in the first trimester to determine the due date. Down’s syndrome screening scans are usually performed between 11 to 13 weeks and the anomaly screening scan at about 20 weeks.
Many families store their children’s cord blood either in private blood banks or donate to the Singapore cord blood bank. Cord blood is the blood in your baby's umbilical cord. It contains stem cells that can grow into blood vessels, organs, and tissues. Cord blood is a rich source of haematopoietic (blood-forming) stem cells (HSCs). The value of HSCs lies in their unique ability to treat blood cancers, immune deficiencies and even certain genetic disorders. Umbilical cord blood collection has been carried out for over two decades and is only done after the baby has been safely delivered. Once the umbilical cord is clamped, it is wiped with antiseptic and a needle is inserted into the vein in the umbilical cord to withdraw the cord blood into a collection bag.
Following childbirth, both mother and baby will receive a postnatal examination within 24 hours of birth. The postpartum period lasts six to eight weeks, beginning right after the baby is born. During this period, the mother goes through many physical and emotional changes while learning to care for her newborn. Contraception needs will also be addressed during this period.
