The scientific aspect of motherhood is not something we think much about. In this week’s episode, we explore the history of pregnancy tests. Also, Janet Golden, an expert on fetal alcohol syndrome, joins us to talk about how ideas have changed regarding pregnant women and what they should and shouldn’t consume. And we learn about Marie Curie and her daughters. Element of the Week: Curium.
