Knocked Up Podcast: Pregnancy and Health Literacy With Dr Preeya Alexander

Posted on 29 October 2019

We chat with Dr Preeya Alexander, a GP based in Melbourne with a passion for preventative medicine and health literacy. On her website and Instagram account (@thewholesomedoctor), she shares evidence-based health information in a fun, engaging manner.

We discuss the importance of vaccines and health literacy; how your GP can help you prepare for pregnancy so you have the best possible outcome; managing anxiety about getting pregnant; and the option of shared maternity care with your GP once you’re pregnant.
