“Pregnancy is a key time for women and their partners to take control of their own health and a unique opportunity to give the next generation the healthiest start. As a pediatrician, I believe that all parents-to-be deserve to be taught about what matters. I volunteer for Pregnancy Awareness Month® as a key vehicle for this education.”
