  • There are protective bacteria in the delivery duct that, when infected, the bacterium enters the baby’s intestines and strengthens its immune system.

Pre-natal counseling

During pregnancy, the mother should take care of her physical and infant health. It is essential to consult a gynecologist before giving birth. The doctor makes the recommendations for eating healthy foods. It also performs ultrasound to see the condition of the fetus in the mother’s womb. If the fetus is in a situation where normal delivery is dangerous to her and her mother, the doctor suggests another method, such as cesarean section delivery. One of these cases is the large head of the infant relative to the pelvis of the mother. Due to the natural delivery of the pressure to the baby’s head, delivery should be done by cesarean section.
