I don't want to give too many details, but I am popping in to say that I went to my BFF's birth last night.

It was amazing. I'm still processing though.

Ack! I dunno. Any attendant skilled with SD and able to give you anti-hemorrhage meds and treat hemorrage (at least until you are you are able to transfer if need be) would be comparable to a hospital setting where they might NOT be able to handle SD so well, but probably WOULD be able to handle hemorrage better. Personally, I'd go with either an underground midwife I trust who meets the qualifications above OR a planned cesarean. If the doc had SD skills and I felt...

I don't know about the health of your sons penis, but I wanted to say that you didn't LET this happen. You did above and beyond reasonable, IMO, for protecting your son.

Well, I know that Brewer declined to do RCT research because he found the idea of asking women to intentionally follow a "bad" diet to be unethical. I agree with that. I wish I knew more about that diet. I know that there are many many stories, ancedotal, about how great it works.... I have been learning a lot lately about pre-e and the causes, or...

Let me start by saying that I do really like her writing style and format. It's in depth while being easy to understand and retain & and fun to read. It really is holistic & thorough. This is a combination of feats which amaze me. What I don't like are the editing mistakes. We'll be talking in one unit on...

Synchro, I believe the newest Diagnostics is better because it's so updated with current figures. As for newest OB text, what do you think would be a benefit for you? I have an older Williams text and while it's good for in depth anatomy, chemistry, etc, it's crap for birth. Well, look at that there's an Diagnostic test...
