If you’re on the path to delivering your child, chances are you’re actively discussing whether or not to have a vaginal or cesarian delivery. For some, the choice is simple. However, if you’re one of the nearly 30 percent of women that experience fibroids by age 35, your decision becomes a bit more difficult. Fibroids may lead to complications with a vaginal delivery, often forcing women to have a c-section, but why is that exactly?

Uterine fibroids are an extremely common type of benign tumor that many women don’t even notice are there. Typically, these tumors do not cause any problematic symptoms such as pain or heavy menstrual flow, which is exactly why so many women are unaware of their own uterine fibroids.

We strongly recommend that pregnant women be vaccinated for seasonal flu.
Please call our office to schedule your Flu shot, if you have not received it yet.
Influenza is more likely to cause severe illness in pregnant women than in women who are not pregnant. Pregnant women have a higher risk for serious complications from influenza than non-pregnant women.
The Influenza vaccine will protect pregnant women, their unborn babies, and protect the baby after birth. The risk for a pregnant woman and her unborn baby of getting sick with the flu is far greater than being vaccinated. If you did not get the Influenza vaccine during your pregnancy, you should still get vaccine even if you are breast feeding. This will help prevent you and your baby from getting the flu.
There are some people who should not get any flu vaccine without first consulting a physician. These include:
- People who have a severe allergy to chicken eggs.
- People who have had a severe reaction to an influenza vaccination.
- People who developed Guillain-Barré syndrome within 6 weeks of getting an influenza vaccine previously.
- Children younger than 6 months of age (influenza vaccine is not approved for this age group).
- People who have a moderate-to-severe illness with a fever (they should wait until they recover to get vaccinated).
