Ante natal care

Detailed Answer:
Hello
thanks for the query,
Ideally 3 scans are mandatory,
1. USG for DATING SCAN AT 6-8 WEEKS OF GESTATION.
2. LEVEL 2 SCAN AT 18-20 WEEKS.
3. USG for foetal growth parameters + placental localisation and foetal echo at 32-34 weeks of gestation.

Nextly for the first trimester, only folic acid tabs + antiemetics and progesterones to be started.
Iron and calcium supplements are to be started after 14 weeks of gestation.

Climbing stairs is not proffered only for first Trimester or for all trimesters?

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
The aim to avoid climbing stairs is to to avoid a fall or injury of any kind, so that precaution is mandatory during pregnancy.
Secondly , i do not prescribe or advise any ayurvedic preparation for control of vomiting during pregnancy at all. You must stick to one type of treatment modality. Follow what your gynaecologist advises.
