Be an advocate for your own healthcare. Be an educated informed participant in all areas related to the health and welfare of you and your baby. Be an active key decision maker, but don’t diagnose yourself or your baby. Self-assessment can be dangerous. Collect the facts open-mindedly. Don’t look for something that’s not there. Ask questions and do your research. Narrow down possibilities using obvious facts, not what ifs. Then take all the information to an expert. Don’t take remedies you find on the internet, always seek a doctor’s advice. Talking to people, searching the internet, books, chats, are all great tools that are essential for seeking information, researching, and getting an idea of what might be going on. You can find out what remedies have worked for other people and make some comparisons, eliminate options and narrow down possibilities. But ultimately you need a professional doctor to determine the correct steps to take. Stick to your doctors recommendations. Don’t take remedies, medicines, herbs, or homeopathic supplements unless approved or prescribed by your doctor. Always let your doctors know what you are taking or when your routine’s change in regards to your health care practices. It takes a village to raise a child and it takes a health care team to live healthy.
