10 Tips For a Speedier Recovery After Delivery

Congratulations on your upcoming bundle (or bundles) of joy! No matter if this is your first pregnancy or your fifth, delivery day is always exciting and a bit nerve wrecking. As a mom of twins, and a mom who had a vaginal delivery with twins (yup!) I can tell you that I wish I had more information on the after birth procedure. Many new moms focus on what to do before your first push and during, but not as much info is other there for the after part. When I was writing What To Do When You're Having Two the topic came up time and time again and I hope that these 10 tips help make your baby's birthday even better for you. 1. Walk the walk! The moment you're able to get out of bed, DO! Walking will help you bounce back quicker, giving any medications you might have had a chance to run through your system. Although it may hurt, trust us, you'll thank us later. Be sure to have slippers or shoes with non-slip bottoms and a buddy or a cane to start off at first.

If you're properly medicated, you're more likely to move around and stay comfortable during that time. Also, breastfeeding a newborn may take a lot of physical maneuvering, and being uncomfortable during your feeding times won't make anyone happy. 3. Do n...

Headley, Vasiliki Kanta, Pinelopi Kyriazi, Denis ParéThe neural basis of defensive behaviors continues to attract much interest, not only because they are important for survival but also because their dysregulation may be at the origin of anxiety disorders. Recently, a dominant approach in the field has been the optogenetic manipulation of specific circuits or cell types within these circuits to dissect their role in different defensive behaviors. While the usefulness of optogenetics is unquestionable, we argue that this method, as c...

Abstract In recent years, the development of immunotherapy has constituted a revolution in the therapy for many cancers, with a specific toxicity profile including endocrine immune-related adverse events. Immune check point inhibitors (ICI)-induced hypophysitis is a common endocrine side effect, particularly with CTLA-4 antibodies and combination therapy, with frequent hormonal deficiencies at diagnosis. It can be difficult to evoke such diagnosis as the initial clinical symptoms are not specific (headache, asthenia…); thus, patients receiving such immunomodulatory therapies should be closely monitored by s...
