I drink a lot of fruit & vegetable smoothies - 1 daily- during pregnant for added nutrients. Do I risk possibility of gest diabetes? Should I worry?

Normal head growth reflects the need to accommodate the growing tissues inside. If something like the Zika virus injures the tissue, the head becomes abnormally small while the body remains normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

None: During pregnancy (and I see you must be asking for someone else, as you're male) it is absolutely essential that one discuss any medication one might take with their OB, and defer taking any medication or supplement until clearance has been given by one's doc. PNV are all the pregnant mother should be taking, unless the doctor clearly prescribes otherwise. Add no supplements please :) ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
