Show Notes

I know Podcasts are meant to be about true crime, I know, not paps smears and pregnancy! 

This topic is too important not to soar up the podcast charts! 

In today's super-fast episode I talk about the Cervical Screening Test (CST) its importance and the facts about CST and pregnancy.

*Spoiler alert - it is safe to have a CST when you're pregnant*

The benefits of being on top of CST ( the new form of pap smear) far outweigh the uncomfortable bits.  In the past five years, the way CST are undertaken have changed so 
CST is a really good topic to add to your list of questions to ask your GP.
