Sleep on your side from 28 weeks of pregnancy

Sleep on your side from 28 weeks


Many of you may not know I belong to SANDS still birth and neonatal birth, and I lost a baby. and I cousel newly bereaved mothers.

This is exciting news . I recall with my first pregnancy, my baby did not like me sleeping on my back.

If you have friends, daughters or daughter in laws,  and the are getting pregnant or planning to get marriage, let them read this.



New research concludes expectant mothers sleeping on their side in the last trimester helps prevent stillbirth.
While this has been common advice for pregnant women, a decade of research carried out in three countries has confirmed the very consistent association between sleeping position and stillbirth.
The Sleep on Side; Stillbirth Prevention Campaign includes brochures for pregnant women and health professionals and a social media video

conjointed twins.

I revisit the time when I helped raise funds for Ganga and Jamuna.
A Filipino family is desperately trying to raise funds to pay for an operation to separate conjoined twin girls attached at the head.

In December 2000, I woke up and read the Straits Times that a pair of Siamese or conjoined twins have arrived in Singapore General Hospital to be separated. Ganga and Jamina were from Nepal and were joined together on their heads as though one was standing on top of the other.
The newspaper called for public donations. There was something in me that I couldn't explain. Besides shedding some tears for their parents Bushan and Mrs. Shrestha.
I decided to do something constructive. I have been raising funds for the Deaf in Kenya through Foodsale. I asked the Foodsale Committee if they would support me if I started the donation drive in NTU. My friends overwhelmingly agreed to help both in collection and give cash.

Save the world: guide to cheap green living.

Everyone now and then, some one sees my blogs and we agree on some ideas.

I saw that you included “Save the world” in a post on My Thoughts and Photos’s website here:

Thanks for this – I’ve been looking for some content about green living online. I’m glad your website has info that could be useful to people looking to reduce their impact on the environment. We at Coupon Chief have just created a massive guide titled “The Ultimate Guide to Cheap Green Living.” It includes up-to-date information and special tips to help people adopt a more Earth-friendly lifestyle without draining their wallets.

Can I send you the link to the guide? We’re hoping you could help us spread the word by sharing and linking to it. :)

Thanks in advance for your consideration!


Here are six of the most important reasons you should adopt a green lifestyle today:
Reason #1: This is the only planet we’ll ever have.
The top reason to go green is an obvious one; planet Earth is our only home. If we spoil our planet, we can’t move to Jupiter or Mars and start over.
Reason #2: Real food is better for you.
The big benefit here is that most Earth-friendly foods are also foods that are good for you. Fresh vegetables and fruits farmed locally are some of the best foods you can find, for example.
Reason #3: Some “green” technologies can help you save money.
While it’s commonly believed that going green is crazy-expensive, this is no longer the case. Even energy-efficient LED lightbulbs, which are somewhat expensive upfront, will help you save money on your home energy bills over time. Meanwhile, the price of newer technologies like solar panels continues to decrease every year.

Reason #4: Going green can increase your home’s value.
Adding energy-efficient appliances or upgrades to your home will help you save money over the long run. And since buyers love the idea of saving on utilities and energy, you can increase your home’s value and fetch a higher sales price, too.

Reason #5: We need water to live.
If you don’t care about the health of our water, you’re forgetting one crucial detail: We need water to live. As humans, we cannot afford to ignore the health of our water supply.

Reason #6: Green living is often more humane
As the scientific journal Nature noted earlier this year, human diets are directly linked to the health of our planet. More than anything else, a vegetarian or mostly-vegetarian diet is the best way for humans to reduce carbon emissions and stop global warming.
