Myths & Realities of Hotly Debated Pregnancy & Birth Topics

How do you find accurate pregnancy information?

There are so many resources to gather information about pregnancy, labor and birth. How do you know what's accurate and what's misleading? In this episode of Yoga| Birth|Babies, Deb Flashenberg and I speak about the myths and realities of many pregnancy and birth debated topics. We cover a range of topics from epidurals (does the epidural medication pass through the placenta?) to putting garlic in your vagina to prevent Group B Strep. Deb is the founder and director of the Prenatal Yoga Center in NYC, and a doula and childbirth educator. The conversation we had was so interesting and I’m thrilled to share it with you!

I provide no nonsense, evidence-based answers to questions gathered from the Prenatal Yoga Center community.
