Fact or Fiction? Pregnancy Myths Answered

For new and expectant parents, pregnancy can feel like uncharted territory. Concerns about a healthy pregnancy can lead moms-to-be to wonder: Is it safe to get my hair colored, soak in a hot bath, or go for a run? Can my baby become addicted to caffeine? What foods should I avoid?

In this episode, the “HealthTalks Now” team talks with Ian Holbrook, MD, a board-certified OB/GYN physician with three kids of his own. Dr. Holbrook helps separate fact from fiction, dissecting some of the most common pregnancy myths. He addresses the safety of everyday activities and concerns about fertility, miscarriage, morning sickness, and labor.
