Question

“Hi Vanessa, I am 21 weeks pregnant and have been loving your podcast! I was hoping you could help me find information about placental lakes. I had a placental lake slightly larger than normal show up on my anatomy scan recently. I didn’t feel like the doctor was clear with me about what they are and how they might affect my baby. I would love to hear what you have to say about them. Thank you!” – Kirsten
