Premature Birth

Having a baby in neonatal care is naturally worrying for parents and every effort should be made to ensure that you receive the information, communication and support that you need.

Ovulation Pain- 5 Reasons Not To Ignore Painful Ovulation

Image When some women ovulate, they experience a sensation commonly referred to as ovulation pain, which is also known as mittelschmerz. The sensation is usually a sudden twang, pop or twinge in the lower abdomen, which coincides with the ovulatory stage of their menstrual cycle. But some women would describe ovulation as being painful. Because ovulation pain is common these days, it might come as a shock to hear that ovulation pain is actually not normal. Yes, many women feel ovulation and it isn’t a big deal. But acute, severe, stabbing or debilitating pain is not normal. Ovulation pain is a red flag...
