Pregnancy Myths Debunked, Part 2

Last month, we shared part 1 of this two-part video series discussing common pregnancy myths.

Joanne Swift, MD, sheds light on whether you can tell if you're having a boy or a girl by how you're carrying, whether or not your first-born is likely to be late, and other often-repeated advice.
