I saw this magazine in the OB waiting room of all places and it was GREAT! I totally want to get it but have no idea how...<br><br><a href="http://www.acnm.org/prof/everybaby.cfm" target="_blank">http://www.acnm.org/prof/everybaby.cfm</a><br><br>
Has anyone else seen it? It is put out by the ACNM and was full of GREAT info on natural childbirth, breastfeeding, you name it!

My midwife gave me a copy. He indicated that it is not a "real magazine", i.e. something you can subsbribe to, but a freebie for midwife/doctor's offices.<br><br>
It is way better than many of the pregnancy mags I've seen! But I'm annoyed by the heavy emphasis on electronic gadgets (probably has much to do w/the fact that the magazine is co-sponsored by Philips!) particularly the Graco baby seat ad that's on p. 82 in the issue I have and the Philips "editorial column" on p. 8 that talks about things like, "Our cradle player will gently lull baby to sleep with the soothing sounds of your voice." and how HDTV is so good for your family.<br><br>
I do appreciate that it emphasizes natural remedies and minimal interventions in birth! It's especially good that it talks so plainly about what the C-section and induction rates are and what they ought to be.

I am positive I saw this magazine at our local Borders today when I was in there. I almost bought it, but didn't. I'll have to look through it now though when we go for our weekly Sunday chai and magazine hour <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
