MD For Moms Radio, Every Wednesday 1pm (ET) on The BBM Global Network, TuneIn and iHeartRadio or as a podcast on iTunes.
This week on MD for Moms, I interview OBGYN Dr. Michelle Muldrow about all things related to pregnancy: getting pregnant, optimizing health in pregnancy, labor and delivery and the postpartum period. We explore topics that range from when to start a prenatal vitamin if you plan to start trying to conceive soon to the various forms of genetic testing available and when to always call your OBGYN, day or night during and after pregnancy. Dr. Muldrow explains the best diets for women to optimize fertility and for women who are already pregnant, and gives sage advice on sometimes difficult to interpret recommendations, like if it is ever safe to eat bacon or stinky cheeses. She also reviews the reasoning behind the recommendation to abstain from alcohol once you know you are expecting, and why sushi also makes the list of things to stay away from. We also go into detail about the reasons why having a baby in the hospital is critical, and how the media has mischaracterized OBGYN physicians. Learn ways to optimize your birth experience and ease some fears this week on MD for Moms.
