    The Disposable Organ: The Placenta

    The Disposable Organ: The Placenta

    Placentas are cool.  They're the interface between baby and mother.  They are manufactured on demand, and disposed of when they're not needed anymore. Unlike other organs you can eat them even if they're from a human, if that's how you roll, and most will just label you a bit weird and not a cannibal.  Dr. Katee has the scoop on this 'disc-shaped' organ.

    Shoulder Dystocia

    Shoulder Dystocia

    Sometimes, babies get stuck on their trip along the birth canal.  We've covered breech births in a previous episode, but another cause is shoulder dystocia--the baby's shoulder gets caught on the front of the mothers pelvis.  It's a true obstetric emergency, but it's one that Drs. Katee and Corbin have rehearsed and practiced for.

    Preterm premature rupture of the membranes

    Drs. Corbin and Katee and their mansplainer Dave have taken a couple months off to get their lives together.  But they're back to drop some knowledge about PPROM (Preterm premature rupture of the membranes).

    Emergency Contraception

    Emergency Contraception

    Drs. Corbin and Katee have been promising an episode on emergency contraception, and here it is!  Katee takes us through the options for emergency contraception, what emergency contraception is and what it isn't, the side effects, and why--if you're sexually active and don't want to get pregnant--it's a good idea to have it on hand even if you're already using contraception.  Plus, listener Corbin (awesome name, btw) writes in to ask what she can do while she is in medical school to be competitive for a residency in OG/Gyn.

    ACOG Committee Opinion: Treating The Obese Patient

    ACOG Committee Opinion: Treating The Obese Patient

    The American Congress of Gynecology has issued a ‘committee opinion’–which OB/Gyns like Drs. Katee and Corbin use to guide their treatment decisions according to the best evidence available.  We discuss what ACOG thinks OB/Gyns should do for their obese patients, including encouraging doctors to avoid implicit biases ag ainst them.  Dave points out Planned Parenthood’s new chatbot Roo, part of their plan to expand their reach to young people and those who don’t have access to high quality information on sexuality, pregnancy and women’s health.

    Choosing between Family Medicine and OB/Gyn

    Choosing between Family Medicine and OB/Gyn

    We got a lovely email from listener Kristin, a first-year medical student who's trying to decide between OB/Gyn and Family Medicine.  So it's pretty lucky that Dr. Katie is married to a family med doc, Dr. Adam Verhoef.  The three docs discuss the areas of overlap, the differences, and the benefits to each specialty as they see them.  And Dave discusses an article that suggests we should stop telling moms that breast feeding is free.

Smart, informative and funny

Love listening to Katee, Corbin and Dave during my morning commute. I always learn something new and look forward to the next episode 😀

Just ok

Somewhat informative, but long-winded and sometimes rambling. Definitely politically slanted. The repetitive use of the word “like” really seems to discredit the professionalism one would expect from a program such as this...it almost sounds like you’re listening to a chat between twenty-somethings instead of actual doctors. I expected a lot more.

What I should have learned in health class

This podcast could also be called “Things I Should Have Learned in Health Class.” Katee and Corbin do a great job explaining everything you need to know about women’s health!
