In this section, our Mommy MD Guides offer their own experiences and tips from their own pregnancies and births. Because doctors so often see the things that can go wrong, they try to do everything as right as they can for their own health and for that of their families. Physicians are a healthier group than the whole. Even though women physicians sometimes will just suffer with things that take time and that affect them alone, pregnancy is different. Most doctors
go the extra mile to take care of their own bodies while they’re carrying their babies.
Even though this section is filled with advice from a select group—all Mommy MD Guides—you’ll find that they hold vastly differing opinions. Pregnancy and birth are filled with issues that people feel very strongly about. Should your baby sleep with you or in the next room? Should you breastfeed or bottlefeed? Should your baby boy be circumcised or no? We’ve presented many different viewpoints—but not with the intent to confuse or to offer conflicting advice. Instead, we wish to present many different options so that you can choose what’s best for you and your family.
Best wishes for a healthy, happy pregnancy!
