#66 – Ask a Neonatologist & an OBGYN (Again!)



We’re on a roll! We interview Dr. Anna Burgansky, Director of Obstetrics & Gynecology, NYP/Lawrence Hospital about pregnancy complications like pre-eclampsia, and have her answer our selfish questions about blood pressure and skin to skin after c-sections.  We then turn to Dr. Marzena Bona, Board Certified Physician, Pediatrics & Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine (aka the doctor that takes care of the NICU babies), asking about the APGAR score, what families in the NICU should know, and why some babies need to stay in the NICU.

NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital has a long and well-established history of providing superior healthcare to the residents of southern Westchester County and its surrounding communities. The 288-bed hospital joined the NewYork-Presbyterian Regional Hospital Network in 2014 and offers a renovated Maternity Department. For more information, visit www.nyp.org/lawrence
