For such an thrilling time in a woman’s life, pregnancy can be a frightening experience for some. As a physician, I’m always a little more on edge when dealing with these patients. This week on BrainWaves, Dr. Jonathan Edlow (Emergency Medicine) of Beth Israel Deaconness Medical Center shares his experience in treating neuromedical complications in this unique patient population.
