Me too!! I was lucky to have midwives who totally supported TF-style eating.

Thanks everyone for all the wonderful advice. I have decided to make the 7 day journal and make sure I mention on there the fact that I eat liver, whole milk, butter, cream, eggs,...I won't mention the fact that the dairy products I consume are raw unless she asks.
It will be interesting to see her reaction and I guess we will go from there.

sounds good, but i woudl also have some info on hand about TF eating, in case she is interested. That way you can give her something to read, maybe she'll be open to it! Unfortunately, I have found that MOST "health conscious" peolpe i have encoutnered ahve been swayed by the more mainstream "vegetarian and soy" philosophy of what is "healthy", so it doesn't surprise me at all.

Ditto, and if you can get your hands on some good research showing the importance of fat and cholesterol in the development of babies both before and after birth that wouldn't be a bad idea. Maybe she just hasn't been exposed to it yet and you could enlighten her and help the moms who come after you have healthy pregnancies and healthy babies. Or maybe she'll throw it in the trash. But you will have done something about it.

My midwife had pretty sound dietary advice (which unfortunately I didn't heed, because it was before I myself became enlightened). She wanted me to eat low carb, non-processed, no sugar food. She was really big on oils and fats (she also sells eggs out of her practice- awesome!) for healthy brain development in kids.
