The following crossed our desk recently and we thought you would find them of interest:

  • Yoga May Be Right Move Against Urinary Incontinence
  • Obesity and cancer susceptibility
  • Lung Cancer is Now More Common Among Young Women Than Men
  • Optimizing Postpartum Care:  ACOG now recommends that postpartum care should be an ongoing process, rather than a single encounter and that all women have contact with their ob-gyns or other obstetric care providers within the first three weeks postpartum. Timely follow-up is particularly important for women with chronic medical conditions.  Initial assessment should be followed up with ongoing care as needed, concluding with a comprehensive postpartum visit no later than 12 weeks after birth. This visit should serve as a transition to ongoing well-woman care and the timing of the visit should be individualized, woman-centered and the follow-up should include a full assessment of the following:
    • Mood and emotional well-being
    • Infant care and feeding
    • Sexuality, contraception, and birth spacing
    • Sleep and fatigue
    • Physical recovery from birth
    • Chronic disease management
    • Health maintenance
