For those of you that have had your “New OB Physical” appointment with me, you have heard my spiel on exercise in pregnancy and eating healthy. Well, regarding diet, a new study proves that my advice is indeed effective in improving pregnancy outcomes. Let’s take a closer look.
Since this pandemic began about a year ago, we have continued to advise pregnant patients (and all patients actually) to wear masks, wash hands, social distance, avoid large gatherings etc. We have had strict policies in our office and very limited access to our office from patients’ loved ones. Now, as I write this blog, the first Americans started receiving Covid-19 vaccines. Currently employees in the healthcare setting are being vaccinated around the country (and world) against Covid-19. Questions are pouring in from our pregnant patients asking our opinion if they should get the vaccine or not.
