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

Posted on October 29, 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.

She’s also a regular commentator on Mamamia, and she just released her first children’s book, Rainbow Plate, which is all about encouraging little kids to eat well.

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.
