Hospitalization in hospital during pregnancy: what you need to know

Let's start with the fact that hospitalization can bePlanned, for example, if the results of the next study showed that the state of health of the future mother or fetus requires constant medical supervision, while the general condition of the woman does not suffer and the threat to her life or the life of the baby is not there. In this case, the doctor of a woman's consultation issues a referral to a hospital at the place of residence. But you can apply to any in-patient hospital of your choice for a fee. It is possible to postpone hospitalization for 1-2 days, if family and other circumstances do not allow you to go to the hospital immediately. In this case, the future mother signs a paper in which it is said that she is warned about possible complications.

Emergency hospitalization is necessary in case ofThe occurrence of complications of pregnancy, requiring urgent medical intervention. Such complications include bleeding from the genital tract, severe pain in the abdomen, sudden loss of consciousness, etc. In the latter case, the directions of the attending doctor are of course not required - you need to call an ambulance or call the nearest maternity ward without delay.

Prepare the documents!
In the event that hospitalization is planned and youIn advance stipulated its date with the attending physician, you have the opportunity to prepare for hospitalization thoroughly. If you need emergency hospitalization, when you need to go to the hospital in the shortest possible time, as a rule, there is not enough time for collection. Let us list the necessary minimum of documents, which is always required when hospitalization in a hospital.

In the purse of the future mother mustTo attend a passport and a compulsory medical insurance policy. Without them, as a rule, there is not a single reception by a doctor, and even more so, they will be needed during hospitalization, whether it begins labor or the need to go to hospital if there is a threat of termination of pregnancy. Another important document that should be in the purse is the exchange card, which contains all information about the current pregnancy, the results of tests and all surveys. The exchange card is issued to the woman in the 28-32 weeks of pregnancy. According to the agreement with the doctor, the exchange card will be given out after the 12th week of pregnancy, especially if it is necessary for any accompanying pathology or complicated course of pregnancy itself. In this case, if you need emergency hospitalization, the exchange card will be at hand with the necessary minimum of research (general analysis of blood and urine, RW, HIV, hepatitis B and C). At each visit to the doctor of a woman's consultation, you must present him with an exchange card for entering into it new data - examination and survey results that will be needed by the doctor of the admissions department for a preliminary assessment of your condition. Without an exchange card at the time of hospitalization, you run the risk of getting into the observatory of the maternity hospital, in which there are unexplored women who have arrived urgently and without documents, which means that they are potentially infectious infectious mothers and newborns, as well as women who suffer from various infectious diseases.

Before the exchange card is on hand,It would be good to have copies of all tests and ultrasound. In addition, along with the documents, it is necessary to keep all hospital extracts with you if you are not hospitalized for the first time.

Emergency hospitalization always involvesMinimum time for collection. Therefore, the most important item on your list is the availability of documents (passport, insurance policy, exchange card), especially when an unforeseen situation that requires urgent medical assistance has originated outside the home. In this regard, it is recommended that all these papers be kept in one place and always have them with you when you go out into the street.

Necessary things
If an emergency situation occurs at home,The arrival of an ambulance car has a couple of minutes to put in the bag a toothbrush, soap, a towel, change shoes, a nightie and a robe. All the rest will be taken by relatives.

If an antenatal (planned)Hospitalization (in case of necessity of carrying out of planned cesarean section, and also at the complicated course of pregnancy - delay of fetal growth, chronic intrauterine hypoxia of fetus, placenta previa, etc.), you have time to deliberately collect a bag with everything you need. For convenience, you can make a list of items that will be required in the hospital, and delete items from it as the bag fills.

We give a more complete set of necessary things,Which you can prepare for the day of planned hospitalization, when you have several hours, or even days, to think things over and forget nothing. In addition to these documents, you need to have easy to wash slippers, you can take two pairs of sneakers: one home - in them you can walk in the ward, and the other rubber - you can go to examinations, in the treatment room, in the shower. In the department of pathology, you need comfortable removable clothing - a dressing gown or light sports kit, 1-2 nightclubs or cotton T-shirts, underwear, socks. Do not forget to take items for hygiene - toothbrush and toothpaste, towel, roll of toilet paper, paper napkins, soap, shampoo, loofah, as well as deodorant (if possible, odorless), comb and hair band. Do not be afraid to put something superfluous: it is better then to lay out an unnecessary thing and give it to relatives than to be without the usual and necessary things.

Every woman wants to be beautiful even inHospital, for which you should not forget about caring for yourself. So do not forget to bring a jar of your favorite face cream with you. If you are supposed to be in the hospital before the birth, then focus on the postpartum period. For example, hand cream with caution should be used when dealing with a newborn: the smell of perfumes that make up the cream may not appeal to the baby. The same can be said about soap or shower gels, the smells of which can have an irritating effect on the child. Therefore, choose these care products if possible without perfumes. If you use makeup, then take it: your appearance depends on your mood. Do not forget to bring a manicure set with you to keep your hands well-groomed.

The hospital always has a lot of free time toFill it with benefit, take with you an interesting book, a cognitive journal or reference book for expectant mothers. The latter probably became your reference book. Or maybe you are preparing a dowry for your baby-tie him a hat or blouse, embroider a pillowcase? In this case, do not forget your handiwork at home: it will help you pass the time. You can take a player or even a laptop with you - an interesting leisure will be provided to you. That's it! The bag is assembled. All captured? Oh yeah, the mobile phone (and the charger to it), without it at all. Now, it seems, really took all the essentials.
