Pregnancy is the one of the most exciting times in a woman's life, but it can also be a time full of questions. Dr. Oz talks with experts about pregnancy and shares advice with listeners.
Dr. Oz talks with Ashley Jansen, a woman who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and struggled with whether she should attempt to get pregnant while on medication. Dr. Lee Cohen, an expert in perinatal psychology, talks with Ashley about the effects medicating a chronic illness can have on an unborn child, as well as what risks might occur if she were to stop medication altogether in order to have a child.
Then, Julie Tupler, author and executive director of Spa Bebe, a pre-and-postnatal spa in New York City, talks about her book Lose Your Mummy Tummy. Julie chronicles some effective ways to get rid of the unsightly bulge known as diastasis and caused by the separation of the abdominal muscles during pregnancy.
