Dr. Erica Montes is a board-certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist and the creator of The Modern Mujer Women’s Health Blog. Her vision to create this blog started soon after delivering her third son and realizing that there are not many places on the internet for people to find expert information about their health, let alone in English and Spanish!
