Episode 4.11 Amnioinfusions, Stat Cesareans, Braxton-Hicks, and TikTok

In this episode, we discuss the utility of amnioinfusion for both variable decelerations and meconium stained fluid. Plus, how fast do we need to go when doing a Cesarean under general anesthesia. Then we talk about how Braxton-Hicks is still relevant today. Finally, new studies about TikTok and the placebo effect in menopause treatments.
