Pregnant women, especially those after six months of pregnancy, sometimes have chest tightness, shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, high blood pressure, leg cramps, and other symptoms; people who have no other related medical history before pregnancy are more likely to be caused by hypoxia larger. The proportion of women who usually exercise less and have weak physiques are higher.

I. Why do pregnant women suffer from hypoxia?

The main cause is that the gradual growth of the infant in the uterus, and its metabolism, that is, the consumption of various nutrients and oxygen is gradually increasing, and the intake of these substances is all done by the various tissues of the mother’s body. If the sum of the consumption of the infant and the mother is greater than the energy intake of the mother, the impact will be reflected through the mother. Compared with food, pregnant women are more prone to hypoxia. Because the human body breathes through the contraction and expansion of the lungs. When we inhale, because the lungs need enough space to stretch, and only when the thoracic chakra is opened and the diaphragm is straightened, we can take a deeper breath, that is, a deep breath. As the baby grows, the internal organs of the abdomen are squeezed upward, and the abdomen is in a state of positive pressure (inflated state), which affects the expansion of the diaphragm and limits the stretching of the lungs during inhalation. Therefore, pregnant women follow Most babies grow up using chest breathing, and sometimes they feel short of breath and not enough air.

II. Symptoms of hypoxia?

After pregnancy, many women often feel that they can’t breathe. This is actually a common symptom of hypoxia. Sometimes pregnant mothers may also experience listlessness and are particularly prone to sleepiness. This is also a manifestation of hypoxia. In addition, the baby’s fetal movement in the stomach is irregular, sometimes vigorously exercise, and sometimes motionless, this is the performance of the baby’s hypoxia. At this time, you need to go to the hospital for examination. In addition, during the inspection, it was found that the fetal development was slower than normal and the fetal heart rate was abnormal, which also indicated that the fetus had hypoxia.

III. What should we do if hypoxia occurs?

First, go to the hospital for fetal heart rate monitoring. At this time, pregnant mothers must maintain emotional stability and not be anxious. Sometimes a pregnant mother has common minor illnesses, which can cause the fetus in the belly to have symptoms of hypoxia. At this time, the pregnant mothers should pay attention and must go to the hospital for oxygen as soon as possible. At the same time, pregnant mothers must adjust their mood, go out for a walk properly, and breathe in the fresh air outside. Inhale oxygen at home for about 15 minutes a day, and use a small-flow household oxygen concentrator. 

The solutions to hypoxia for pregnant women:

 Breathing exercises: Pregnant women can take some deep breaths regularly every day to relieve hypoxia. Take deep breaths and slow exhalation three times a day for 15-30 minutes each time, which can reduce or even eliminate the occurrence of hypoxia symptoms. Oxygen inhalation method: If the effect of breathing exercises is not obvious, you can use a small-flow household oxygen concentrator to inhale oxygen, 1-2 times one day, about 15-30 minutes each time. In case of an emergency, consult an obstetrician at a hospital.
