“Hi Vanessa! I am currently 25 weeks pregnant with my first and into episode 37 of your podcast. While I have a long way to go (I hope to get through all of the episodes) I already feel immensely more knowledgeable! I have started researching making a birth plan and read through your own. One thing I have not seen/heard mentioned so far is the vernix. I tried looking ahead to see if there was an episode on vernix and have yet to find one. Do you have an opinion on the benefits of vernix and recommended time frame before the first bath?” – Sara
