    Very interesting initiative. I literally devoured the 3 first episodes shortly after discovering the blog. It was important to have a OBGYN blog and I am it will not be long until some firms turn their attention to sponsor the blog.

    Congratulations on this launch. I like the format in which you discuss relevant papers and the methods.

    I’m an Assistant Professor in Reproductive Endocrinology and I enjoy hearing about issues from MFM.

    I look forward to hearing about topics in other subpecialties, as well.

    An informative discussion from the REI world would be: the NEJM paper published earlier this year showing that Metformin had lower pregnancy rates than Clomid and that combined treatment did not significantly further improve pregnancy rates over clomid alone.

    The study was by the Reproductive Medicine Network and was led by Richard Legro.

    I have heard Dr. Legro speak on this topic and he is quite good.

    I also think, in general, when you hve an invited guest you should have questions from contrarian points of view. (I fear study authors do not often give unbiased assessments of their own studies.)

    At any rate, great work. I look forward to future podcasts.

      Dr Legro didn’t seem interested in coming on the Podcast. Too bad!

    I have to say that I am disappointed. I have enjoyed the podcasts very much. There isn’t anything comparable out there. However I have now become aware that the last episode (#6) was broadcast 10/2008. Are we done? I hope that there will be future Podcasts soon.

    Hi Dr Fogelson,

    As one of your lovely residents, I Just wanted to say I appreciate your hard work, I am listening to some of the podcast! Also, helps that you put some of the articles and D&C lab you did, since I was on night float and missed them! Thanks!

    I teach CBE classes and try to explain benefits and risk of the many options and common scenarios parents might find themselves in during labor and birth. I was thrilled to find your excellent post on the benefits of allowing the cord to pulse after the birth. When couples request this at a birth, many docs roll their eyes, tap their feet and humor the parents. I was wondering if you could discuss this on your podcast. I have noticed that while most moms in my class will read anything I give them, only some dads get into the reading and I have found that I have better luck with some dads if there is an audio option 🙂

    Love the blog and the podcasts. Thanks!

      Thanks for the comment and for listening to the podcast! I think I might try to get Judith Mercer and a few others on to do a podcast about the literature on delayed cord clamping authords to do a podcast. Its been on my list of upcoming subjects for a while!

      Thanks again.

    Hello Nicholas
    I am a podcast listener (though not so much last 6 monthes). A couple of years ago you covered an article documenting substantial perinatal morbidity related to late preterm 37 and particularyly 38 elective delivery. I remember being convinced by your review, but a cannot remember or find the article.
    Do you by any chance remember the citation?

    Thanks for all your good work.

    First, Pinterest users should have more creative options to customize the home page.
    While that mantra may have worked for Kevin Costner in “Field of Dreams,” it doesn’t necessarily work for credit
    union websites. There are different ways on getting invited to Pinterest.

    I’m an MD/PhD student, and even though I’m several years behind in finding this, I love the podcast! I’ve found a few programs related to women’s health, but nothing else that provides academic level content reviewing current literature. Thanks for your contribution, and if anyone knows of similar podcasts available now, let me know!
