“In the Ladies’ Room with Dr. Donnica” is the only public ladies' room you can enter any time without ever waiting on line! Hosted by women’s health expert and media commentator Donnica Moore MD, the podcast will feature real conversations, with real women, about really intimate issues. They may be embarrassing, sad or funny, but they will always be
interesting & informative. You know, like the best conversations you've ever had in ladies' rooms with your best friends. . .or total strangers. . .and a physician!

With a wide variety of guests with “been there, done that” expertise, Dr. Donnica discusses the health and wellness topics women often talk with her about in the ladies’ room. . . after speaking engagements, media
briefings, at events, or just because they happen to be chatting anonymously while waiting on line or over the sink. Generally, these topics tend to be things that are embarrassing; issues Dr. Donnica calls “the Toilet Talk topics” (anything related to bowel or bladder issues, gas, bodily functions, periods, discharges, etc.); questions related to sex and intimacy; subjects women are uncomfortable discussing in public or in “mixed company”; challenges women are struggling with; or anything top of mind or in the news. In each topic, we add our Top Tips about that topic as well as a call to action.

Dr. Carol Balthazar is an Internal Medicine physician specializing in aesthetic medicine, the co-founder and medical director of Longevity Medical Spa, and the co-founder of TheraPearl reusable hot and cold packs. She is a married mother of 3, and her oldest son has Autism Spectrum Disorder. She is an appointed member of the Maryland Behavioral Analyst and Advisory Committee and a member of the Howard County Autism Society. Her passion for advocacy in the Autism community led her to create The Autism Mom MD Podcast. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for topics you’d like to hear on her podcast, you can connect with Dr. Balthazar on Instagram @austim_mom_md or on Facebook @AustimMomMD.


Carol talks about what the spectrum of Autism means and how it affects different people. With her son, she suspected that he had Autism Spectrum Disorder based on his behavior as a young child. It was then confirmed when her son was in fifth grade. For a long time, people had dismissed his behavior as “oh he’s just being a boy” or “he’ll grow out of this”. So Carol had to take charge and get her son tested. Once her son was diagnosed, she then had to keep pushing his teachers to keep believing in him. Carol also discusses the importance of getting vaccinated and getting your children vaccinated. Dr. Donnica and Dr. Balthazar address the false information that vaccines can lead to Autism.
