Last week, we talked pregnancy style with Micaela Erlanger, who recently ranked among the top three stylists on the Hollywood Reporter’s “Power Stylist” list. Erlanger has worked with some of Hollywood’s top celebrity names, currently styling Meryl Streep, Winona Ryder, Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Hudson, Hillary Swank, and Michelle Dockery, to name a few. She's also styled pregnant Hayden Panettiere and Jamie King.

It's true: researchers in Brazil have confirmed that microcephaly is a result of a mother’s Zika exposure during pregnancy or just prior. Importantly, a positive test for Mom during pregnancy does not mean her child will have birth defects.
Earlier this week, we caught up with Dr. Angie Jelin, Assistant Director of Prenatal Genetics at Johns Hopkins, for more answers.
