Technology is amazing. It seems just when you think things can’t possibly get any better, there is a brand new advancement to put us in our place. When it comes to health, technology is important. It is what keeps us living longer than ever and able to take care of our bodies more than in the past. Especially if you are pregnant, there are more ways than ever to simplify your life. We understand just how scary pregnancy can be. Your body is going through what feels like a million changes at once and anything that can help you track your baby’s health as well as your own is important and going to help you and your loved ones sleep much better at night.
Foetal dopplers are something more and more people are using. In the past, you had to go to the doctor in order to track your baby’s heart beat but these days, you can do so from the comfort of your own home. This is especially nice for mothers who are having tough pregnancies because you want to do anything in your power to keep both you and your baby safe.
There are also downsides to this device and that is that it can make mothers paranoid about what is happening to their baby. Little changes in heart beat may occur and this can cause you to worry that something is going wrong. Make sure you talk to your doctor so you aren’t constantly feeling as though you need to rush to the hospital because this can be something that can cause more harm than good. You do not want to spend your days analyzing every little thing your baby is doing. That’s stressful and extremely overwhelming. Make sure you know what is normal and what isn’t so you never have to question what is going on and can keep calm.
If you thought 3D ultrasounds were cool, then you are going to fall in love with the new 4D technology. This technology is just like 3D but with a new twist; everything you are seeing is happening in real-time so you can literally feel as though you are spending those first moments with your baby even though they are still in the womb. This is important because it can better help to track your baby’s health and growth. We are excited to see what comes next because we thought 3D was as good as you could ever get. Technology has a way of amazing us and upping the ante when we never thought it was possible.
Prenatal Learning Systems
More and more companies are coming out with new and improved prenatal learning systems. These include music that is going to help to stimulate your baby’s mind. You’ve probably heard the fact that classical music helps to improve your baby’s brain power and these devices offer that but also take it a step further. While many people are skeptical, we can’t help but want to give it a try because what could it possibly hurt? It’s hard to prove whether or not they work since you can’t compare how smart your newborn baby is compared to how smart they would have been but many people are jumping on the bandwagon.
NASA Technology that Helps Expecting Mothers
We never thought we would say this but there is actually technology that has been created by NASA that is helping mothers to be in an unexpected way. The technology was originally created to measure the surface of plane wings but is now being used to track your baby’s health. The material is extremely flexible and can be bent to fit the unique shape of each mother’s belly and can help to monitor things such as the baby’s heart beat to make sure things are looking and sounding normal. This device is something that can even be used from the comfort of your own home; which we were very excited about. Again, be sure not to overreact about the things you find along the way and discuss your findings with your doctor closely so you’re both on the same page at all times.
Pregnancy Tests More Affordable Than Ever
Have you ever wondered whether or not you were pregnant but were intimidated by the high price of pregnancy tests? The great news is there is a new option out there that anyone can afford. It isn’t on the market yet but it shows promise of coming out very soon. Basically what researchers are doing is replacing the expensive paper used in test kits with standard office paper. Not only is this change going to help with pregnancy testing but also with other things such as diabetes testing because it will be able to stick to many various chemicals.
