Prenatal care, what is it? We get into what it is and why it is way more than just showing up to your doctor’s appointments. You can expect to have somewhere around 14 appointments throughout your entire pregnancy. So on 14 days you will see a doctor or a midwife, that’s it. For the other 260 some days that you are pregnant it is just you and the baby. You, as the final decision maker, are the biggest influence on your little one.
What the heck you are supposed to do and what changes you may need to make once you find out you are pregnant. This brings you up to speed on everything you should know from the moment you see a positive result on a pregnancy test. This episode covers everything from prenatal vitamins, health insurance, caffeine, fitness, to what you shouldn't eat and what activities to avoid during your pregnancy.
In this short episode you get a quick rundown of everything you can expect from Vanessa Merten and the Pregnancy Podcast. The Pregnancy Podcast is a resource to support expecting moms (and partners, too!) with evidence-based information to navigate the awesome adventure of pregnancy, birth, and being a new parent.
