Sorry if this has been posted, and, I hope it's not against mdc rules, but, I thought these two stories were pretty great.
I wonder if all the naysayers will say that these physicians didn't do their research either?

I guess it's balanced but it comes from a very weird place. The third post in says that she would never even use a midwife in a hospital. It just seems very strange that it seems like it's so familiar and going on "everywhere" to you.
Really enjoyed the mommd read. All 7 pages. Thanks for posting.
