Becoming a parent is beautiful journey, but one that can also be full of uncertainty and stress. Add to that navigating a pandemic through pregnancy, birth and your little one’s first years, and the anxiety can be overwhelming. After all, it’s not just your health you have to be concerned about anymore. That’s why Dr. Veronica Pimentel – a practicing OB-GYN, pandemic mom, and fierce vaccine proponent – is here to discuss the facts about COVID, vaccines, and motherhood. In Labor of Love, Dr. Pimentel works to alleviate the concerns of new parents who have questions about how COVID and the vaccines may impact pregnancy. In each episode, she’ll talk with real moms who share their stories about experiencing motherhood in the time of COVID, and follow up with maternal health experts who share accurate information so listeners are equipped to make the best choices for themselves and their families.
