Pregnancy, what a crazy thing – this body you have known your whole life changes AND you’re in charge of another human life! Needless, to say, I had a LOT of questions when that nubbin first appeared in the grainy ultrasound.
Baby #1 arrived in November, 2013. Baby #2 arrived in September 2015. But the mysteries of pregnancy plague me and the questions just keep coming!
So here I continued, diving into the mysteries of pregnancy and new mommy-hood the best way I know how – through science.
My PhD and I spent over a decade as a research physiologist exploring the world of stress and reproduction. A few years ago, I moved on from academia and jumped fully into the world of pregnancy and women’s health, working for an incredible start-up called Bloomlife that perfectly captures my goal for all moms-to-be: Give the ladies more information!
As you’ve probably noticed, I’m not around here much any more. BUT, I am still writing and editing and running a publication focused on better (and more interesting!) information about pregnancy. It’s called Preg U. And its awesome.
Or better yet, sign up for our newsletter. It’s pretty awesome too.
I really enjoyed reading your posts. As an engineer born with an analytic mind, I too find myself walking the line of nature and science.
The most informative and understandable information on low lying placentas. Very enjoyable and reassuring.
I love this. Thank you for creating the pregnant scientist … feel free to continue with the crazy science of babies/young development….
Yes! This fascinates me as well! Hoping to jump into that world soon.
This is such an amazing blog. A thousand times thank you!!
There is a post about the Placenta in 2013 with a few references to another post to follow on the topic, but I am unable to locate it. Is there another post I am missing?
Nope 😦 never got a chance to write it!
BUT I will be writing a big placenta post soon over on Preg U – https://preg-u.bloomlife.com/ – as soon as I get a little bit of time to tackle it!
Looking forward to it. I have signed up for the news letter.
