54: The Truth about Pregnancy, Labor, Delivery, and Motherhood with Two Doctor Moms
As an OB and Pediatrician, a common assumption of us two doctor moms is that we have it all figured out.
I welcome my friend Dr. Marta Perez (on Instragram as @dr.martaperez), who is an OB and new mom. We chat about motherhood and everything that got us here today.
We share a heart-to-heart about the assumptions that are made of us as physicians and doctor moms.
- Did we fear pregnancy, labor, or motherhood?
- Did we experience anxiety in pregnancy or postpartum even with all we know?
- Do we experience momma guilt?
- Did we empathize more with our patients after our experiences being pregnant and becoming a mom?
Dr. Marta Perez and I break it all down and also educate about the real deal--the truth behind pregnancy, labor, delivery, and motherhood!
