Living through a pandemic is stressful for everyone, even more-so for expecting and new parents! In episode 8 Sarah sits down with Dr. Jessica Shepherd - a Board Certified OB/GYN, mother of two, and the go-to women's health expert on Good Morning America, The Today, Show, Dr. Oz, The Talk, and ABC. They chat about what you can expect during a prenatal telehealth visit with your healthcare provider, to in-person visit protocols, what it's like to give birth amidst a pandemic, as well as ways to help cope with the stress and anxiety of it all.
