PP# 193: Strategies That Work For High-Risk Pregnancies with Parijat Deshpande

Parijat Deshpande is a high-risk pregnancy specialist and somatic trauma professional who guides women to improve their pregnancy complications so they can reduce their risk of preterm birth. Her unique neurobiological approach has served so many women to manage pregnancy complications and reclaim a safety and trust in their bodies that they thought was eroded forever. Parijat is the author of the bestselling book Pregnancy Brain: A Mind-Body Approach to Stress Management During a High-Risk Pregnancy. Her work stems from her own extremely high-risk pregnancy and the tools and tactics she implemented that helped her get just a little further along and allowed her son to live.

In this episode, we talk about Parijat’s experience with infertility, loss, and an extremely high-risk pregnancy, what exactly it means to have a high-risk pregnancy, how you can support your body before and during pregnancy, what trauma and stress really mean, how you can reduce your pregnancy risks, and so much more!
