Mama Chaos

LOL I completly agree with burning that damn book! I've had two unmedicated natural births as well and I loved knowing that my body could do it, was made to do it. I hate the fear mongering pushed on women just to save themselves from lawsuits.


I have to say, ditto on burning that evil book, too. My god, it seemed like every chapter was, "Week X of pregnancy--everything that can go wrong with your baby right now and why it is all your fault."
I cried every time I read it.

Isn't malpractice insurance for ob/gyn's the absolute most expensive for anyone in the medical profession? Of course they will insist on every test and make you sign waivers for everything you refuse.


Anyone remember the "Best Odds" diet from that book? Sure, "best odds" of making you hate eating and maximizing your guilt.... I think I was quite a health nut during both pregnancies, but it still didn't come close to that whole grain raw veggie perfection that was the Best Odds diet. Personally I don't even think you could eat that much produce, beans, grains, and lean protein without consuming about 7,000 calories per day.
