This week on MD for Moms, I’ll be interviewing opens in a new window gastroenterologist Dr. Sarina Pasricha about gut health. You’ve probably heard the phrase gut microbiome, but what does it mean and why should we care? Also, why do we get hemorrhoids (esp during and after pregnancy) and how can we get rid of them? Also, what is gluten and how does it relate to celiac? Should we all be gluten free? Answers to these questions and much more on this week’s MD for Moms.
