Things That Make You Go Hmmm...

"Where would all the specialists and producers of medical technology and drugs be if it were suddenly 'discovered' that when women eat well in pregnancy, eliminate drugs and stop substance abuse, almost all complications disappear?" - Anne Frye


eh... I won't go there... because I already did (lol).

I can't see this and not comment. There are plenty of women who do everything mentioned in the quote and still have complications.

I was a part-time fitness instructor, ate the Brewer diet, and took immaculate care of myself during my pregnancy.

Despite this, my genetic clotting disorder (unknown to me at the time) reared its head and clotted up my son's placenta. I developed Class I HELLP syndrome at 27w 6d and he was delivered by emergency cesarean as my liver was about to rupture.

I guess mother nature doesn't always prevent complications.

Oh, I agree Aiden - another one of my favorite quotes is "Birth is as safe as life gets"... yes, life is normal, natural, GENERALLY safe, but it still not SAFE... If YKWIM.

I do like that she says ALMOST all complications disappear...
