Your parents drove in from out of town. Your husband’s parents did too. You wanted your daughter in the delivery room. You wanted

I get it. You’re scared. Pregnancy is already a time of uncertainty. I saw the looks on my patient’s faces today. And I will see them tomorrow. And the next day. I thought back to when I was pregnant during residency. What does this virus mean for pregnant women? What does it mean for their unborn babies? What does it
That is the question. This is an ever present concern with women; especially women going into medicine. We want to “have it all” but wonder if it’s even truly possible.

Doesn’t really seem like the two should go together. After all, pregnant women are disabled right? We should be on 10 months of bedrest while we carry our children. WRONG. You can be pregnant and healthy and fit! Many women prove this every single day. At my last prenatal visit, my OB GYN asked me if I had been exercising.
