Liz in Sunny Cali ,

Great way to review medical terms

I speak Spanish but needed a review of medical terminology and this was quick and easy!

Labor and delivery

I would love an episode on learning phrases having to do with having a baby, labor, breastfeeding, etc.

abaldiz ,

Thank you

So far love this podcast. Spoke Spanish growing up but not enough to actually be able to translate complicated medical situations. Plus when starting to look for information it can be somewhat overwhelming 😭 either can you please do spine edition similar to the nuero section and an orthopedic section too.
