Father is labour ward pain
January 29th, 2006
Nervous fathers-to-be could be more of a hindrance than a help in the delivery room, experts warn. Anxious men pass on their fears to mothers giving birth by Caesarean section, researchers from the University of Bath and Imperial College London found. Their anxiety increased the pain experienced by women immediately after the operation, which in turn could affect their recovery and influence the success of breastfeeding and parent-child bonding. The study suggested that fathers should be prepared, both at antenatal classes and before the operation, to help reassure their partners about the procedure. One in four babies born in Britain is now delivered by Caesarean section.


Hair Care – Split Ends
January 29th, 2006
The problem of split ends occurs when the cuticle is damaged and the fibres of the cortex unravel. This happens because of chemicals, neglect and harsh treatment. Conditioner will not fix this problem. You will need to have the split ends cut off. It is best to go to the hair dresser but you may do it yourself. Just take some small sections of hair strands, twist them, very carefully run some scissors up and down the hair shaft cutting off any stray ends that poke out.

Cleaning agents can be extremely harsh on both nails and hands. The nails when exposed to water, swell and then shrink back as they dry. This contributes to brittle nails.
