Waiting to Become a Mother

When was the last time you thought about your heart health? A month ago? A year ago? Never? Well, there’s no better time than the present to have a heart checkup. Sure, you could put it off for another year, but your heart deserves better.

Men were once thought to be more susceptible to heart disease than women, but studies show that women account for more than half of those who die each year from heart disease in the United States.

The holiday season is a time of wonder, joy, and goodwill. So why are you so stressed?
