Coolsculpting London – Post Pregnancy – Double Chin Treatment

Childbirth is a wonderful and thrilling experience. However, in addition to the joys of parenting, moms may face physical changes, such as stubborn excess weight. While nutrition and exercise are excellent places to begin, even the most health-conscious mommy may face some challenges. CoolSculpting is an excellent option for those who want to avoid invasive procedures and lengthy recovery times.

What is CoolSculpting and how does it work?
CoolSculpting is a body contouring procedure for those who have persistent fat pockets. There are no incisions, stitches, or scars in this treatment, and there is little to no downtime, so you can get back to taking care of your baby straight away.

Targeted cooling technique, also known as cryolipolysis, is used in this treatment to freeze away recalcitrant fat cells while leaving surrounding tissues undamaged. The body will normally digest these fat cells once they have died.

CoolSculpting can be utilised to treat practically any part of the body, including the double chin, upper arms, belly, flanks, and inner and outer thighs, to name a few. Treatment is only 35 minutes long for 1 Advantage cycle, 45 minutes for 1 Cool Mini cycle or 75 minutes for 1 Cool smooth Pro cycle, so you’ll be in and out in no time!

Who is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a fantastic option for people who have stubborn pockets of fat within 30 pounds of their target weight. It’s crucial to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment for obese people. A consultation with one of our CoolSculpting professionals is the best way to find out if this procedure is right for you.

If you’d like to learn more about whether CoolSculpting is suitable for you, give our Cool Clinic a call today! We’d be delighted to set up your introductory consultation.

Post Pregnancy – EMsculpt London – Diastasis Recti Treatment

Electromagnetic energy is used by Emsculpt. This electromagnetic energy compresses core muscles, assisting in the area’s strengthening and toning. It’s the equivalent of doing 20,000 manual sit-ups in a 30-minute session. It’s a great treatment for new moms who have stretched or weakened abdominal muscles after giving birth.
Roughly 30% of women have diastasis recti six weeks after giving birth. When the abs split during pregnancy, this problem develops. Diastasis recti is a condition in which the uterus grows and pushes the abdominal muscles apart, causing the belly to grow huge and round.

Emsculpt is an excellent treatment for Diastasis Recti. You can help tighten your core and improve the appearance of your abdomen by completing a course of treatments. It may also aid in the reversal of some pregnancy-related alterations. HIFEM is a non-invasive treatment that produces intense muscle contractions that are impossible to achieve with voluntary contractions.

When your body is subjected to these intense contractions, the muscle tissue begins to adapt to the new circumstances and responds by undergoing a deep remodelling of its inner structure. You’ll notice a built-up muscle and a more contoured physique after a few sessions.

The treatment may cause some discomfort, but it is not unpleasant, and the discomfort subsides within a day. This is a far faster process than the soreness caused by regular workouts. You will notice and feel the difference after just one visit, with complete results usually reported four weeks following the final session.

What your Diet should contain during Your Pregnancy

Having a healthy diet during pregnancy and getting all the nutrients you and your baby need is very important. Fine-tuning your diet will ensure the health of both you and your baby.

In the pregnancy period your body becomes more efficient and makes better use of the energy you receive from your food so you only need to consume around 300 extra calories per day.

Your diet should consist of enriched foods, such as whole-grain breads, cereals, pasta and rice, as well as fruits and vegetables. You should also include good protein sources at every meal to support the baby’s growth, such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, beans, tofu, cheese, milk and nuts.

Whole-grain breads contain the much needed essential carbohydrates while they also provide fiber, iron and B-vitamins.

Dairy products should also be consumed (3-4 servings per day) as they provide the much needed dose of Calcium (at least 1000 mg of calcium is needed daily), that are essential in your baby building strong teeth and bones, normal blood clotting, and muscle and nerve function .

The fruits and vegetables contain a lot of nutrients and are rich in vitamins and fibers so these will be very important during your pregnancy. You can get from here your needed daily dose of at least 0.4 mg of folic acid (from dark green leafy vegetables, lack or lima beans, black-eyed peas, veal) or the needed daily dose of at least 70 mg of Vitamin C (from oranges, grapefruits and honeydew, and vegetables such as broccoli, tomatoes, and Brussels sprouts).

Vitamin supplements can only complement a healthy diet during pregnancy but we advise you consult your Doctor and establish which work best for you.

Zika Virus – basic need to know facts

Zika virus threat is real and has been declared a “global public health emergency” by the World Health Organization. Four cases have been confirmed in the UK but the virus doesn`t naturally occur in our country.

The Zika virus is spread primarily to people through the bite of an Aedes species mosquito which luckily is not found in the UK. The most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, joint pain, conjunctivitis (red eyes), muscle pain and headache and the incubation period is likely to be from a few days to a week. It has been confirmed that there is also a sexual transmission of the virus so safe sex is advised for people who have traveled to areas where there is an active Zika transmission.

The illness is usually mild and does not require hospitalisation as the symptoms usualy last for several days to a week. For now there is no vaccine to prevent or medicine to treat Zika virus (the treatment consists of plenty of rest, drinking fluids to prevent dehidration, paracetamol).

The real Zika virus danger is for the pregnant women since it has been officially announced that there is now enough evidence to conclude that Zika virus infection during pregnancy is a cause of microcephaly and other severe fetal brain defects and has been linked to problems in infants, including eye defects, hearing loss, and impaired growth.

It is highly recommended especially for pregnant women to avoid traveling to any area where the Zika virus is spreading. By April the known areas with wide spreads are: The Caribbean, Central America, The Pacific Islands, South America, Mexico.

If you are in an area with a risk of virus infection you can protect yourself by preventing mosquito bites (wear long sleeved-shirts and long pants, stay in places with air conditioning and door/window screens, use insect repellents, stay away from mosquito breeding sites, like containers with standing water). Safe sex is also advised in order to avoid getting Zika through sex. Also if you traveled to an area with a risk of virus infection it is highly recommended to talk to a healthcare provider even if you don`t feel sick.

Pregnant women should be given a budget of around £3,000 to be spent on services including a midwife of their choosing, a major review has concluded

Under plans proposed by the National Maternity Review, women would be told about local NHS providers, but given flexibility to make their own choices about their care.

Mums-to-be could opt for a hospital near work for routine scans, but a hospital closer to home for their baby’s birth, or choose a provider offering the same midwife throughout pregnancy, birth and postnatal care, the authors said.

The scheme would give women more choice over how and where they give birth – an important decision at a time when half of maternity services in England are classed as “inadequate” or “require improvement”.

The proposals have been compared to personal health budgets, where people with disabilities or long-term conditions have a say over how NHS cash is spent on their care.

That system has come under fire amid reports of abuse, with some patients using their budgets to buy holidays and video games.

Despite rapid improvement over the last 10 years, the review highlights safety concerns, including some hospitals failing to own up when something has gone wrong.

The review’s authors call for a standardised investigation process and “rapid redress” for families whose babies suffer harm.

The review also calls for better continuity of care and more resources for postnatal care.

Chair Baroness Julia Cumberlege said: “Women have told us they want to be given genuine choices and have the same person looking after them throughout their care.

“We must ensure that all care is as safe as the best and we need to break down boundaries and work together to reduce the variation in the quality of services and provide a good experience for all women.”

Simon Stevens, chief executive of NHS England, said: “The independent review… rightly argues that the NHS could and should raise its game on personalised support for parents and their babies, better team working, better use of technology, and more joined-up maternity and mental health services.”

Baby scan video review from the clinic in Harley Street

We appreciate future parents posting videos of their unborn babies on the internet. This way other parents can also make appointments for baby scans without having doubts.
Steven is now a proud father. He and his wife scheduled an appointment at the Baby Scan Clinic in London and they chose to have a HD Live baby scan. The video is the one they got on a DVD after their appointment showing their baby in close detail and giving them the opportunity to see him clearly before being born.

Video of baby scan performed at the baby scan clinic

Jordan has posted a video from her baby’s 4D scan at Baby Scan clinic in London. The scan shows her baby in amazing quality images, so good that one can notice small details such as the shape of the baby’s lips and nose, and even the baby’s fingers. The video includes only the images the parents received from the clinic after their appointment on a DVD. Thanks to them, other parents can now safely go to the clinic and have a baby scan of any type without the fear of regretting it afterwards.

Video review of the Baby Scan Clinic in Harley Street

Thanks to enthusiastic parents like Monika and Thomas, others like them know now how valuable a baby scan is and can now benefit from one without doubting their quality.

Monika is a young mother of two, of whom one is still in her tummy. She is an English vlogger who made an appointment at the Baby Scan Clinic in London. She and her husband chose to have a HD Live Baby Ultrasound. In her video she is presenting their entire trip to London. The rules of the clinic didn’t allow her to film during the appointment but she was able to upload in her video some parts of the DVD she received after. The video also includes her and her husband’s reactions to the scan and the clinic. They show high satisfaction and seem thrilled that they were able to see their unborn baby as clear as they did.

Are baby pacifiers useful?

Do you remember that old picture with the baby you preoccupied with a dummy? In the past, most mothers resort to baby pacifiers in order to sooth the baby or just keep her busy.

However, with the developing of the so-called baby science, we find out that the traditional methods might not be safe for the development of the baby.

Such is the case with the baby pacifiers. Below, you can read the pros and cons of using a pacifier.

A pacifier satisfies the natural need of your baby to suck. Since the gums of your baby are aching, she feels the need to test the gum against some object so a pacifier can calm down the painful gums and reduce the baby’s frustration. However, the baby might be confused about the breastfeeding and lose interest in the breastfeeding since it requires more effort.

While your baby can fall asleep faster while using a pacifier, he can become dependent on the dummy. Therefore, if the dummy falls off his mouth during the night, he will make a terrible fuss until you will wake up and give him the dummy back… each and every time.

Sucking on the dummy helps your baby receive the right amount of oxygen and reduces the risk of SIDS. Nevertheless, if the baby becomes dependent on the pacifier, it might be difficult to correct the behaviour and the overuse of the pacifier can cause misaligned teeth.

Another problem is that the pacifier can become a magic tool that helps you to avoid the fuss and tantrum pulled by your baby. It is a problem because it reduces the interaction between you as a mother or parent and your baby. In case your baby has a real problem like dirty diaper, missing his mother or being hungry and you use the dummy, you will only worsen the problem.

If your baby accepts the pacifier, you can use it at times; just make sure not to let your baby become attached to it.
