For such an thrilling time in a woman's life, pregnancy can be a
frightening experience for some. As a physician, I'm always a
little more on edge when dealing with these patients. This week on
BrainWaves, Dr. Jonathan Edlow (Emergency Medicine) of Beth Israel
Deaconness Medical Center shares his experience in treating
neuromedical complications in this unique patient population.
Produced by Jonathan Edlow and James E. Siegler. Music by Daniel
