Answer: Hi dear, If you are talking about increasing breastmilk then here are following tips: 1- breastfeed often.more you feed, more milk is produced 2- keep yourself well hydrated.lack of water in body could effect breastmilk supply.keep a bottle of water while you breastfeed 3- oats cookies are beneficial to increase breastmilk.mix it with various dryfruits with few poppy seeds( khas-khas),with desi ghee 4- lot of fresh vegetables and seasonal fruits 5- fenugreek and fennel seeds in diet.you can also soak fennel seeds in water overnight and drink it up daily 6- prenatal vitamins,like calcium and iron would also help you in the process 7- take proper rest.to exhaustive body could hamper your breastmilk production too If nothing works,try formula milk.

Have minimum of 12-14 glasses of water. 2. Do not strain and sit on toilet seat for longer hours. 3. Cold therapy.

Question: I have had c section 5 years back...now i want to try n deliver vaginally...i read that it depends on the thickness of my scar...my question here is how can i find out the scar thickness???
Answer: As long as you're an appropriate candidate for a vaginal birth after a cesarean, also known as a VBAC, there's a good chance you'll succeed. Of course, your chances of success are higher if the reason for your previous c-section isn't likely to be an issue this time around.That said, it's impossible to predict with any certainty who will be able to have a vaginal delivery and who will end up with a repeat c-section. Attempting a VBAC is called a trial of labor after cesarean (TOLAC). Overall, about 60 to 80 percent of women who attempt a VBAC deliver vaginally. These steps can help for vaginal birth after a c-section if Your previous cesarean incision was a low-transverse uterine incision (which is horizontal) rather than a vertical incision in your upper uterus (known as a "classical" incision) or T-shaped, which would put you at higher risk for uterine rupture. (Note that the type of scar on your belly may not match the one on your uterus.) Your pelvis seems large enough to allow your baby to pass through safely You've never had any other extensive uterine surgery, such as a myomectomy to remove fibroids. You've never had a uterine rupture. You have no medical condition or obstetric problem (such as a placenta previa or a large fibroid) that would make a vaginal delivery risky. There's a doctor on site who can monitor your labor and perform an emergency c-section if necessary. It will be more difficult: Being an older mom,Being overweight,Having a baby with a high birth weight,Having your pregnancy go beyond 40 weeks of gestation ,Having a short time between pregnancies (18 months or less)
