Kendra Marcinowski, ARNP, provides Zika advice

To avoid these problems, North Florida Women’s Care says don’t go to the Miami area if you’re pregnant, and use condoms if your partner does go to these affected areas.

North Florida Women’s Care Nurse Practitioner Kendra Marcinowski said, “If her partner has traveled or is exposed then it can be transmitted sexually, so that’s a big concern as well.”

Bug spray is another big way to prevent mosquito bites.

“DEET is safe during pregnancy, so I definitely recommend that, long pants, long shirts, trying to avoid mosquitoes in general because they do carry other diseases as well,” said Marcinowski.

Getting ‘dad’ involved: Partners play huge role in pregnancy

View the video on Tallahassee.com
Dr. David Dixon, who works at North Florida Women’s Care at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare, talks about how dads can get involved in creating a better pregnancy. 

Dr. David J. Dixon, D.O., remembers “walking the walk” together with his wife during her two pregnancies.

“The walk,” in this case is a simple way to characterize the journey of support, preparation and energy that a couple must undergo in the stages leading to the delivery of a healthy baby.

As a board certified Ob-Gyn, Dixon had a good deal of medical knowledge on his side, playing his role as a supportive partner and helping lead to healthy, normal deliveries of his two children.

“Surely, pregnancy can be an exciting thing for both mom and dad, but it can also be a time full of anxiety,” Dixon said.

At the North Florida Women’s Care offices in Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare, Dixon often talks with soon-to-be-fathers who are eager to help alleviate some of the difficulties of pregnancy.

Face the facts about smoking

Why would a facial plastic surgeon care if you smoke?

“Yeah, yeah,” you think, “of course, everyone knows smoking is bad for your lungs, but smoking doesn’t affect my face, and it makes me look cool, right?”

Wrong.

Smoking, unfortunately, does nothing good for the way you look. In addition to all the bad things you have likely heard about smoking hurting your health, it is can also be devastating to your appearance. The nicotine in cigarettes causes constriction of the tiny blood vessels that feed the skin and soft tissue of the face. This leads to premature aging, more wrinkles and tissue sagging. It also dehydrates the skin and will lead to a rougher, more crinkly appearance.
