I just read in our base paper that my drinking water failed purity standards way back in September. It had elevated coliform bacteria and chlorine levels. Chlorine can cause neural tube defects and I can't find anything on the coliform except that it is not considered safe for pregnant women. Why do they wait until almost November to tell me? They even say it shouldn't cause a problem except possibly in pregnant or infants. Hmm a bunch of young families, no pregnant women or babies could possibly be drinking this water. I feel so guilty, I knew I should have bought bottled but it costs so much and we have been struggling to pay the bills and midwife. I haven't felt the baby kick and I am terrified now of spina bifida or other problems.
