Description

Your immune system is what keeps you healthy and helps to fight off infection. The classic perspective is that pregnancy suppresses your immune system. Advancements in our understanding of the immune system during pregnancy paint a more colorful picture. We now see the placenta as an immune regulatory organ. An intricate symphony is going on in your immune system to protect both you and your baby during pregnancy.

Listen to this episode to learn how you can support your immune system when you are pregnant.
