I whole-heartedly agree with your post. and the simple fact that they DID lump MW-assisted HB in with UC tells me that they will NOT present a realistic, fair picture of HB.
My DVR is set- I'm still going to hold out hope that they'll mention 2 key things that, IMO, show, without doubt
how stupid the AMA anti-HB stance is:
1. About one-third of all births in the Netherlands are HBs & it's been so for years (used to be even more, I think)
2. The UK is actually currently trying to recruit more HB MWs so the option of HB is available to any woman who wants it (well, low-risk women, I'm sure.)
But... I also agree that even if it's all woo-hoo-pro-ACOG
, at least it'll draw attention to it & pique interest.
ETA: the article states, "Mothers-to-Be Saying No to Modern Medicine"
HB MWs have plenty of "modern medicine" with them!!!! It is not an outright rejection of modern medicine, and to protray it as such is inaccurate & even misleading.
