Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

In today’s episode, Dr. Marta Perez and I are addressing the delicate subject of abortion. The goal of this podcast is to educate from an evidence based position and to reach those that may have opposing views to our own.
We hope that this podcast will give you the tools that you need to answer difficult questions that someone may ask you, such as, does life begin at conception? This episode will cover the definition of abortion, and medical terminology that is used with diagnosis and treatment, and how this can complicate things when it comes to anti-abortion laws.
Maternal mortality rates will be discussed and how they will be affected with certain laws. We also discuss why women have abortions, how you can get involved in supporting women’s reproductive rights, and much more.
Dr. Marta Perez. Marta is a board-certified OBGYN and is starting a fellowship in maternal fetal medicine and Texas this month. She has practiced as a physician in both Missouri and Florida for years before taking this step to deepen her knowledge of complex medical conditions in pregnancy, fetal diagnosis and management, and conducting the research to make pregnancy care safer.
She has a passion for direct public education on social media, and can be found on Instagram and YouTube, providing evidence based educational topics about pregnancy, birth, postpartum, contraception, sexual health, and more.
