Vous serez probablement excitée et anxieuse à l’approche de la naissance de votre bébé. La durée moyenne d’une grossesse est de 40 semaines. La plupart des femmes accouchent entre la 38e et la 42e semaine. Beaucoup de bébés ne viennent pas au monde à la date prévue d’accouchement. Environ 85 % des bébés naissent dans la semaine qui précède ou qui suit la date prévue d’accouchement. La meilleure chose à faire est de considérer votre date prévue d’accouchement comme la meilleure « estimation possible ». La présente brochure explique à quoi vous attendre si la grossesse se poursuit après votre date prévue d’accouchement. Elle traite aussi du déroulement des évaluations post-terme et de la façon de vous préparer à ces consultations. Les symptômes exigeant un appel à l’unité du travail et de l’accouchement sont indiqués.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1925, “Giving Birth After Your Due Date”. You will likely feel excited and anxious as you wait for the birth of your baby. The average length of pregnancy is 40 weeks. Most women give birth between 38 to 42 weeks. Many babies are not born on their due date. About 85% of babies are born within one week before or after their due date. It’s best to think of your due date as a “best guess.” This pamphlet describes what to expect if you go past your due date. What is done during a Post-Dates Assessment (PDA) and how to get ready for these visits are covered. A list of symptoms which require you to call the Labour & Delivery Unit is listed.

Abstract
Lorsqu’une personne a de la difficulté à avaler les liquides clairs, il y a un risque que du liquide entre dans ses voies respiratoires plutôt que d’aller dans l’estomac. On appelle ce phénomène l’aspiration et cela se produit lorsque de la nourriture ou du liquide « passe dans le mauvais tuyau ». L’aspiration peut augmenter les risques de pneumonie (infection des poumons). Elle peut aussi être très désagréable et faire tousser. Lorsqu’on a un problème de déglutition (difficulté à avaler), il peut être difficile de boire une quantité suffisante de liquides épais pour rester hydraté. Pour vous assurer de boire assez de liquides, vous pourriez peut être boire de l’eau entre les repas. Ce dépliant donne des conseils pour boire de l’eau de façon sécuritaire entre les repas et réduire les risques d’étouffement.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Drinking Water Between Meals" pamphlet 1159. Some people have problems swallowing thin liquids. This means that some liquids may go into their airway instead of their stomach. This is called aspiration. Aspiration is the word used when food or drink goes ‘down the wrong way’. Sometimes aspiration can increase the chance of getting pneumonia (lung infection). It can also be very unpleasant and cause coughing. It may be hard to drink enough thick liquids to stay hydrated. To make sure you get enough liquids, you may be able to drink water between meals. This pamphlet gives guidelines for drinking water safely between meals for people with swallowing problems so that there is less chance of choking.

This pamphlet explains the options available to women who have had a baby by cesarean birth (sometimes called “cesarean delivery”, “c-section” or “CS”). Women who have had a cesarean often give birth vaginally in their next pregnancy. This may be referred to as Trial of Labour after Cesarean (TOLAC) or Vaginal Birth after Cesarean (VBAC). When you can plan for a VBAC, what makes a VBAC safe and successful, as well as the benefits and risks of VBAC, are listed.

Erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) are a group of medicines that help take the place of a hormone called erythropoietin (EPO). People with chronic kidney disease (CKD) may not have enough EPO coming from their kidneys to tell their body to make more red blood cells. This can cause their red blood cell count to drop and anemia (not enough red blood cells or hemoglobin in the blood) to develop. If you have CKD and active cancer or a history of cancer of stroke, it is important to carefully …

Abstract
Erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) are a group of medicines that help take the place of a hormone called erythropoietin (EPO). People with chronic kidney disease (CKD) may not have enough EPO coming from their kidneys to tell their body to make more red blood cells. This can cause their red blood cell count to drop and anemia (not enough red blood cells or hemoglobin in the blood) to develop. If you have CKD and active cancer or a history of cancer of stroke, it is important to carefully consider the risks and benefits of ESAs. The risks and benefits of ESAs are listed. Your health care team will talk with you about the risks and benefits of ESAs and other factors to consider when making the decision to take ESAs.
