womenshealth

We are happy to announce a new, educational series here on Red Stick Moms Blog with local mom and women’s health expert, Dr. Leanne Redman: Chatting About Women’s Health We love being able to share our own opinions and insights mom-to-mom here on the blog, but we also love the idea of growing our understanding of important health issues such as pregnancy, breast cancer, and nutrition.  There is always new research coming out through news and media sources regarding women’s health, and sometimes the information can be overwhelming.  We are hoping that with the guidance of Dr. Redman, we can gain a better understanding of the medical research and empower our decision-making through education.

Now, let’s get to know Dr. Redman a bit more!
