It’s hard to believe that another year has come and gone. For many of us, the year was full of challenges, opportunities to better ourselves, and great memories. But, there's always room for improvement, which is why many of us set resolutions for the coming year.
The end of the year brings many things—the holiday season, anticipation for the new year, and for most of us, updated insurance plans. While you may be insured through your employer or have insurance of your own, chances are your benefits for 2020 will differ from your current package.
Seasonal depression, also known as seasonal affective disorder (SAD) or the "winter blues," is a subtype of depression or bipolar disorder that occurs and ends around the same time every year. Seasonal depression typically occurs when the seasons change and most symptoms begin in the fall and continue into the winter months.

Taking proper health precautions such as going to regular check-ups and receiving vaccines is part of any good preventative health regimen. Though taking these measures is even more important when you are pregnant in order to protect your baby.
