Wellness Wednesday: Knowledge is Power. Get some.

I recently finished and published the website's pages on Infections in Pregnancy. At the bottom of those pages, I have added that much again in a new section called "Other infections of Perinatal Significance". Now this may sound way too scientific and unrelated to daily life, but nothing could be further from the truth. These are the big time everyday infections we hear of each week: Pertussis (whooping cough), Bacterial Vaginosis, Toxoplasmosis, Influenza, Herpes, Chicken Pox, and more. Learn more about these common infections and how they pose special risks to pregnant women. Learn what you can do to protect yourself and those around you. 

And, also coming tomorrow, will be a special section on Preterm Labor. Learn the facts and figures as we know them, and how we handle Preterm Labor today. Hint: It is not how we handled it even 5 years ago.
