In honor of Mother’s Day and in hopes of providing useful information to moms and families, The Tico Times is proud to share the first-person accounts of two of our writers who recently gave birth in Costa Rica. Here, freelancer Gabriela Díaz Musmanni recounts her experience at the Hospital CIMA in Escazú. I found out that I was pregnant last year while living in the town of Mysore in southern India. Although a dusty pregnancy test with a disturbingly vintage appearance offered a negative result, I felt pregnant, and a second, less disturbing- looking test confirmed it. Every pregnant couple is faced with the decision of where and how to give... We could have stayed in India, where medical care, like mostly everything else, was dirt cheap – we’re talking 3 USD for a visit to the gynecologist. However, the smells, sights and tastes of India, which normally filled me with awe, made me unbearably nauseous while pregnant, and after a first trimester of hurling at the mere mention of curry, I was desperate for some gallo pinto. Like sea turtles that navigate across oceans to lay their eggs in the exact same spot where they were born, and in spite of not having been born in Costa Rica, I knew that I wanted to give birth surrounded by familiar faces, in my mother tongue... My partner Marco fully supported my decision, and four countries later, we arrived in San José ready to nest and design our birth plan. Having heard wonders about the benefits of birthing tubs, we decided to explore this option. We found out that babies born in birthing tubs are apparently soothed by the warm water as they enter the world, which also relaxes the mother’s muscles and eases the pain of contractions. In Costa Rica, water births can happen at home, under the guidance of midwives and doulas, at birthing centers, or at CIMA Hospital in Escazú or Clínica Católica in San José. Adam Paer is famous for directing water births in Costa Rica, and after meeting this jolly, laid-back gynecologist at his office at Mediplaza in Escazú, we were game. We decided to go for CIMA because it was close to home and my medical insurance covered 80% of the costs, which for Costa Rica, and particularly when compared to India, are certainly not cheap. Right from the start, Dr. Paer was adamant that anything can happen at the moment of. Source: www.ticotimes.net
"It's such a change physically, mentally, and in terms of lifestyle, that I definitely didn't know what to expect going into it," Rivera said of her pregnancy, as quoted by Yahoo. "I have friends who are moms, and you hear stories and stuff, but it's never the same until you actually experience it yourself. So I think everything has pretty much surprised me. ". She continued, "There's a lot, physically, that changes with your body when you're pregnant, and I guess no one could've warned me about that stuff. Rivera, together with her husband Ryan Dorsey, announced her pregnancy on Feb. 24 via her official website. However, the couple has not yet revealed their child's gender. The former "Glee" star told Yahoo. Style that her pregnancy cravings include ice cream, but she makes it a point to be healthy by taking vitamins and supplements, as well as eating vegetables. She also revealed that she has been doing elliptical workouts. Reaching the third and final trimester of her pregnancy made Rivera feel "ecstatic. " According to the 28-year-old actress' blog post, she could "see the finish line and it felt so good. "Sure, my back was on fire and I was tipping the scales at numbers I didn't think I could ever reach, but who cares. WE'RE ALMOST DONE. " she wrote excitedly on her blog. "Being in my third trimester means hard work is ahead and every day a new body part aches or seemingly falls apart. But it also comes with its share of really fun and exciting things too. Last February, Rivera also wrote a blog post on PEOPLE and mentioned how her pregnancy made having sex with Dorsey difficult. However, Rivera thinks that being a celebrity has its own negative side for pregnant women, given that people on the Internet can be so quick to be rude and critical. "Pregnancy is such a beautiful time to me, and I feel like you should embrace your body in whatever stage it's in. So it's kind of hard being an actress, being a celebrity, and having people scrutinize how you physically look, and just saying the... To deal with the haters, Rivera tries to remember that she doesn't know the cyberbullies personally, nor do they know her, so whatever they say should not be taken seriously, the news outlet noted.

He poured himself a large glass but as I tipped my own flute for some bubbles he whisked it away. “I’ll get you a fizzy water,” he said firmly as I muttered a weak protest. During your life, you are given plenty of well-meaning advice – from doctors, experts, newspapers, scientists, friends, family, strangers. You learn to filter it – tending to accept anything that dovetails nicely with what you have already decided to do. But then you get pregnant and suddenly there is a 100 times more of this advice and it is 100 times more militant. Don’t drink. Don’t smoke. Don’t eat blue cheese, unpasturised cheese, rinded cheese, goat’s cheese. Basically steer clear of cheese. Don’t eat soft scoop ice cream, runny eggs, coleslaw, rice salad. Nuke your beef steak, lamb cutlets, pork sausages and chicken breasts. Forget coffee, tea and dark chocolate and forgo pâté, terrines, sliced meat, sushi, sashimi and smoked fish. Adhere to other fish injunctions too, which tend to be about mercury - oh, and avoid bagged salad. You need to follow these strict instructions because, quite frankly, nobody trusts you to take care of yourself. And why should they. After all you are a ridiculous shape and an emotional wreck. Last month a study claimed that drinking in pregnancy was common in the UK, labeling it a “significant public health concern”. The authors of the report pointed out that in Ireland, New Zealand and Australia doctors recommended no alcohol for the entire pregnancy, while in the UK there is no official government guidance on the issue. Most British doctors say one to two units once or twice a week will do no harm after the first three months. All agree that drinking excessively is bad news and can lead to foetal alcohol syndrome. But the most recent research into drinking in pregnancy says there is no evidence whatsoever that the odd alcoholic beverage harms a baby’s neurodevelopment. My midwife told me that one or two drinks a week was “probably fine. But what does that even mean. “Probably fine” sounds downright wishy washy. Which seems to be true about a lot of advice given to pregnant women. This time around I have suffered with chronic migraines. My doctor prescribed paracetamol but when I went to the pharmacist with my prescription she tutted. “Haven’t you seen the latest research. Source: www.eadt.co.uk
