Show Notes

While both of Mary Beth’s pregnancies were relatively healthy at 38 and 41, she is very candid in this “Pregnancy After 40” episode about the mental and physical toll that pregnancy had on her which prevented her from truly enjoying the time she spent carrying her daughters. During this journey, Mary Beth talks about how her initial reluctance in having to visit both her OB and MFM Specialist on different days during her 3rd trimester ended up being a lifesaver for her daughter and led to her being induced. She also shares how chiropractic treatments helped alleviate some of her pregnancy-related ailments, both of her traumatic deliveries, and destigmatizing Postpartum Depression (PPD).
