Dr. Megan Gray is a practicing obstetrician/gynecologist with over 10 years of experience. She received her medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina and then completed her Ob/Gyn residency training at Orlando Health in Orlando, Florida. She has delivered over a thousand babies in her career so far, but it wasn’t until she went through the postpartum experience herself that she really understood what was lacking in maternal care. While on maternity leave, with her first child she was inspired by her own experience to write Amazon bestselling “The Forgotten Trimester: Navigating Self-Care After Birth”, which can be found at https://www.amazon.com/Forgotten-Trimester-Navigating-Self-Care-After-ebook/dp/B07G3DC2TX/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=the+forgotten+trimester&qid=1603220615&sr=8-1. She has since started an Instagram page and YouTube channel to help educate women on the changes that occur during the postpartum period/fourth trimester.
