Mommy Health Bloggers

I was surprised to see that there is not a group dedicated to health bloggers. I've created this group for Twitter Moms who blog about health topics. Here we can share health information and tips.

Humbled by 100 blogs; please enter my contest!

Approximately one year ago, I wrote my first blog post. By training I am a physician, but writing has always been in my heart. Blogging was a new path in my life’s journey, taking me in an unknown direction. I knew I had something to say, the question was: would anyone listen? Well, to my utter delight, over two thousand people listened, many commented and some even subscribed to my blog. I am honored, humbled and grateful to live in a country where people might not necessarily agree with each…See More

10 Things Your Doctor Should do to Help Improve Your Pregnancy

A perfect pregnancy is an admirable goal but not always realistic, despite the efforts of all concerned. As pregnancy becomes obtainable in high risk patients, the desired goal will no longer be a perfect pregnancy but the best possible outcome. For example, if a patient is obese, her physician or midwife is obligated to discuss the risks associated with pregnancy and obesity so that the mother is prepared to do the necessary preparation in order to have the best possible outcome associated… Continue

What Every Pregnant Women Needs to Know About Group B Strep

February is International Prenatal Infection Prevention Month and a discussion about the prevention of Group B Streptococcal infection (GBS) is necessary because it is the leading infectious cause of illness among newborns in the United States. Untreated GBS can cause serious infections including meningitis and bacteria in the blood stream of newborns.

The good news is that the number of cases of GBS has declined in the U.S. during the past 15 years. The bad news is that 4 % of… Continue

Six Ways to Prevent Cesarean Section Complications

Although I’ve been a proponent for prevention of medical errors for years and wrote a book to address those issues, I think my ob-gyn colleagues are finally catching on. Dr. Patrick Duff of the University of Florida’s Ob-Gyn department wrote an article in the December issue of the Obstetrics & Gynecology journal that caught my attention. In A Simple Checklist for Preventing Major Complications Associated with Cesarean Delivery, Duff outlines steps that obstetrician-gynecologists should take… Continue

Why the Story of Mareena Silva is Important: Playing it Safe During the First Trimester

The story of Mareena Silva, a 19 year old pregnant woman who was mistakenly given a medication that could have caused a miscarriage is a precautionary tale of why it’s so important to be vigilant during pregnancy.

Silva was prescribed an antibiotic at six weeks gestation. Although the name of the antibiotic was not given, she ultimately received Methotextrate, an anticancer drug that is sometimes used to treat ectopic or tubal pregnancies and could have caused a spontaneous abortion.… Continue

Hi Linda,

Sorry it's taken me a bit to get back to you. Things have been crazy. We just did a book club on our site today Unfortunately, it may be a bit too soon to do your book since you may notice some similarity. But definitely contact the site! Also, a new edition would be helpful, we seem to do books out the same year, even though I know your book came out last year.

My Lupus is doing well with Orencia but I have a lot of secondary issues that have kept me down such as Fibromyalgia and Costochondritis. I am applying for disability. I'd love to make contact with your cousin.

Be well,

Hi Dr. Burke-Galloway, I have written some health articles for the Dallas Examiner. Perhaps they might be helpful for your patients to review, especially the one on breast screening. I have enclosed the link below.
