“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.

Today we’re talking with Dr. Alison Escalante about one of the biggest epidemics facing Americans: Anxiety. Chances are pretty high that you’ve experienced anxiety first hand; as we’ve discussed previously in episode 61 of this podcast with psychologist Dr. Sheryl Kingsberg, a survey done by the organization HealthyWomen revealed that 96 percent of American women say they have suffered from anxiety.  More alarmingly, 81 percent said they suffer from it at least weekly. Dr. Escalante has an interesting perspective on the anxiety epidemic as both a parent and as a pediatrician who counsels parents on a daily basis about what she calls the “Should Storm”, which I will let her tell you all about.
