Hormones & Pregnancy
Dr. Alberto Sirven
Hormones are an important factor during pregnancy, because they affect from the mood of the future mother to the way the body prepares for labor, affirms Doctor Alberto Sirven, Obstetrician-Gynecologist at West Kendall Baptist Hospital.
In the first trimester, the increase of estrogen, for example, is the cause of the appearance of dizziness and other symptoms. Then, the hormones prepare the body for breastfeeding and the organs in order to deliver.
“I think pregnant women are the most beautiful individuals in this world because of the fact of bringing a new life,” the doctor says.
