As an OB-GYN with Beaufort Memorial Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialists, Dr. Tiffany Bersani has reassured her share of anxious expectant mothers. But it wasn’t until she was pregnant herself that she experienced first-hand the worry and concern that comes with carrying a baby—or two, in her case. Not only was Bersani pregnant with twins; they were due at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic last April.
Look, we get it. We’ve all been through this past year, and we know what it did to your fitness goals. First it was the COVID 19, and by that we don’t mean the virus, but the 19 pounds you gained in lockdown.

We hate to break it to you, but your house is still dirty, and in the worst place possible. You can’t see this dirt and grime, but it’s there, circulating every time your air conditioning is on. And when it issues forth from your vents, it’s undoing all the hard work...
Compounding Interest: At Bluffton Pharmacy, the latest pharmaceutical trend is something they’ve been perfecting for more than 30 years.
It’s a fact of life, particularly as you get older. You have to take your medicine.

There are as many different opinions about politics as there are people. There are also countless outlooks and forecasts on the economy and stock market.

Have you ever noticed when someone paints a house, the actual painting doesn’t seem to take very long? What takes the most time is getting ready to paint. We call it “the story of the blue tape.” You know that blue tape that comes off really easily? When someone is going to paint a house—if they are going to do it right—they spend a lot of time with that blue tape. They put that tape everywhere.

I bet if it takes a week to paint a house, five of the seven days are spent on the prep work. That’s where the time is spent.
Welcome 2021. I say this with an abundance of caution after the year we had in 2020 and with hope that this year will be better for all of us. As we continue dealing with COVID-19, I’m hoping that the vaccines now available will bring the level of protection we need for our health. It would be great to return 100 percent to the normalcy we had before COVID-19 entered into the picture.
