Our Children and The Environment

First of all, please I want to watch the movie titled, “Daughters of the Niger Delta”. I believe I can use it to start a beautiful conversation with my Niger Delta people. Links please 😊 So according to the statistics by the Federal Ministry of Health, 7 million babies are born yearly in Nigeria but

Air Pollution And Your Children

Is the air in your city and even inside your house clean? Air pollution is both indoors and outdoors. Before a baby is born, if that baby is exposed to air pollution in the womb, it can alter their lung development. It can lead to premature birth and a low birth weight.  After a child

My PhD Journey: Systematic Review

Today has been a great win for me. In my opinion, I have crossed the crucial stage of doing a systematic review.  Oh my days, I almost went haywire when I realised qualitative and quantitative reviews have different methods of approach. (Who sent me a message to be in academia 😱?) I am doing a combined

Children Environmental Health: WASH Awareness

Poor water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and poor nutrition are important risk factors for ill health and deaths in children less than 5 years of age.  Parents try to keep your environment clean as this influences the growth and development of your children. #sdg6 #sdg3 #water #sanitation #hygiene #WASH #environmentalist#environment #environmentalhealth #childrenhealth #paediatrician#medicaldoctor #parenting #babies #children #publichealth #healtheducation#nigerdelta #waterpollution #pollution #warri

Church Vibes

This is what I learnt today: The need for earthly applause can lead to a determination to succeed but it is also an avenue for a downfall. If you want to feel successful, it is found in the person God has already made you be. Look in the mirror, darling! Psalms 18 vs 31-36. #gospel #inspiration #church #grace #wordoftheday #bibleverse #wordofgod#drweyoms #sundaygospel

HIV in Teenagers

When I worked in the hospital truth be told, the number of young people I saw diagnosed with HIV was alarming.  There was a really bad case of a 16 years old boy who was diagnosed with HIV and I guess because he couldn’t handle the situation mentally, he died in 2 weeks. That day,

Urinary Incontinence During and After Pregnancy

Sneezing or even laughing, drops of urine on my underwear…that’s how my third trimester started.  After my C-section, the next day, the catheter was removed. I had to learn how to control my bladder again…a little activity, I’d pee on myself.  Did you have any experience with urinary incontinence as a pregnant woman and even

Pregnancy Complications

A tear or a doctor decides to make a cut during childbirth- some women don’t like talking about their experiences during the actual childbirth but many people can learn from it. Let’s discuss, mothers especially first time mothers, what were the challenges?#episiotomy #childbirth #drweyoms #pregnancy #womenshealth#healthmatterswithdrweyoms

The Silence About Pregnancy

Yes, they say get married early and get pregnant before 30, it is also not easy to stand the pressure of that. Oh, you married late, get pregnant before 35, it will save you from in-laws trouble, that also is not easy.  Oh, you should do this, do that so you can be pregnant. Oh

Combining Breastfeeding And Bottle Feeding.

I know we are all about exclusive breastfeeding but sometimes it is not always possible. Trust me, breastfeeding for one year is not funny, it is stressful. You may want to try mixed feeding because you want to breastfeed, but give infant formula for one or more feeds, or because you are bottle feeding your
