Walking is the Perfect Pregnancy Exercise

Walking is the Perfect Exercise During PregnancyOne of the most important things you can do during your pregnancy is exercise. If you’ve been online lately, or strolled through your local bookstore, there’s no shortage of Pilate, yoga, dance, or other trendy workouts to consider. We’re not going to say any of them are bad or good, but if you haven’t mastered yoga before pregnancy, and if Pilates was never your cup of tea, don’t forget good old fashioned walking.

It’s June and maybe (hopefully) Michigan weather will stay above 50 degrees for a while and you can get outside and walk, enjoy the fresh air, and get that much needed exercise. You owe it to yourself.

We’ve found a few articles on things to consider, tips, and fun ideas to make your exercise more enjoyable. Read them on the treadmill. Go for a walk.

Postcards from The Medical Outreach Team

Screen Shot 2011-12-04 at 4.03.58 PM

This month we’ll be featuring some e-postcards from our very own Dr. Cathy Stark and her mission team from Durban, Africa, when she and a group of 18 went as part of a Medical Outreach Team. In mid-April, the Michigan leader wrote:

“Hello Family & Friends!

Just want to let you know the team got off this morning.  Lots of excitement and prayers – thank the LORD all went smoothly.  They will arrive in Durban, South Africa tomorrow night and they have an hour drive from the airport to the Mafu’s home.  I may get an email very late tomorrow night and will send out their report as soon as I can.”

Then Dr. Stark included a photo of the team and a calendar of events and prayers.

Da Vinci Robotic Surgery

Do you know about Da Vinci Robotic Surgery?

One in three women in the U.S. will have a hysterectomy before she turns 60. And nobody wants surgery if they can avoid it. But what if there was a way to have a hysterectomy without a large incision and weeks of recovery.

Da Vinci surgery offers an alternative. It’s revolutionary and you should understand you have options. You can read more about it at our website here (link URL: http://www.oaklandmacombobgyn.com/da-vinci-robotic-surgery), or we encourage you to call and visit one of our two conveniently located offices and meet with one of our expert Doctors.

Prenatal Portraits – 3D/4D Ultrasound

It’s been said that a picture is worth a 1,000 words. But we at Oakland-Macomb OB-GYN think a 3D/4D prenatal ultrasound photo is one type of picture that leaves people speechless.

There are no words.

We are happy to be able to offer live pictures of your baby while still in the womb. The images are beautiful, ena- bling you to see your unborn baby stretch, yawn, move and swallow with a clarity much greater than a traditional 2D ultrasound.

Bonding with your baby

We can help to create a keepsake that you and your family will never forget. Our unique packages have different offerings including color photographs and DVD of the entire ultrasound session.

Timing

We recommend scheduling an appointment between 26 and 34 weeks of pregnancy. This time period offers optimal visualization of your baby. (more…)
