Here are just a few of the things I discuss...

  • Why you MUST understand what's being "measured" and why.
  • What numbers during your prenatal visit don't mean anything, and which ones might.
  • What is the POINT of listening to your baby's heartbeat?
  • The real truth on blood pressure and what it can tell you in pregnancy.

    Oh wow.  So totally true.  So frequently I will ask a friend about her diagnosis, such as anemia.  She will have NO idea what numbers were or what was even being measured!  Just told to take iron.  "You should not be the last to know and get your information"...yes!
