3 days ago
Pregnancy glow, sounds like your face should be beautiful and glowing during your pregnancy. This “glow” is due to an increased blood volume and extra production of oil, which are supposed to give you a glow during pregnancy. All of the changes your body is going through during pregnancy may give you a beautiful glow, but for many expecting moms this creates some not so fun changes in their skin. Some common skin issues are sensitivity, stretch marks, acne, melisma, linea nigra, spider and varicose veins, and skin tags. This episode dives into each of these issues, what causes them, if or how they can prevented, and how you can treat them. Show notes: http://pregnancypodcast.com/episode87/

I love Vanessa's focus on both evidence based medicine and practical real-world-mom tips. I like knowing what to discuss with my doctor and husband. She's the friend we all need, who's helpful but not pushy! Thank you!
