Episode 46 - Stretch and Sweep

In this episode, Mel and B talk about stretch and sweep and some other reasons why someone would ask to put their fingers in your vagina while you are pregnant. Listen in to learn about if it’s ever a good idea to allow a clinician to do a vaginal exam or give a stretch and sweep in pregnancy. Spoiler alert, as always, if you don’t want it, it’s perfectly right to say no.
