Obstetricians Renee Goldberg, MD, and Cindy Kobelin, MD, explain the moodiness that often accompanies pregnancy — how moods and emotions may swing during each trimester, how to help keep it in check, and when moodiness may be a sign of something more serious like depression.


Ask the Obstetrician: Weight and Pregnancy

Obstetricians Renee Goldberg, MDMonica Mendiola, MD, and Celeste Royce, MD, discuss what’s normal when it comes to gaining weight during pregnancy, including how to eat a healthy diet and exercise safely.


Ask the Obstetrician: Pregnancy and Older Moms

Obstetricians Celeste Royce, MD, Cindy Kobelin, MD, discuss what it means to be an “older” mom in this day and age, the potential risks facing women who become pregnant after the age of 35, and what women can do before becoming pregnant at an older age to help ensure a healthy pregnancy.


Ask the Obstetrician: Pregnancy and Single Moms

Obstetricians Renee Goldberg, MD, and Monica Mendiola, MD, offer some insight and advice for single moms-to-be about choosing a supportive birth partner, connecting with financial and education resources available through BIDMC, and the caring clinicians who will be there for you during labor and childbirth.
