A Few of My Favorite Comments

by Melissa Garvey, ACNM Writer and Editor

Comments are what make a blog come to life. A blog without comments is no different than a magazine article, an online newsletter, or a plain old webpage. That’s why every comment we receive at Midwife Connection puts a smile on my face. Long, short, positive, negative—I love them all. Here are a few of my favorites.

About Should a Pharmacist be Able to Refuse to Fill a Prescription?

“But to the pharmacists in question, it is forcing them to participate in the murder of another human. Which should not be forced on anybody.”

“I agree with you, Amie. I cannot understand asking an individual to drive across town, to another town, to another county, etc... to have access to birth control.”

About What Mammography and Continuous Electronic Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring Have in Common

“My mom died from a VERY aggressive breast cancer at 47 yrs old. She was diagnosed at 42. Cancer is not akin to low risk pregnancy. I think women should start screenings in their 30's.”

About It’s Time to Fight for Preemies

“My son was born at 34 weeks, suffered from undetected chronic brain bleeds, and will now never live completely independent. I get tired of the blase attitude towards these late preemies (34-37wks). They are likely to do better but bad things can still happen.”

About BJOG Study Finds Homebirth as Safe as Hospital Birth

“What an elegant study! And unsurprising conclusion. It will be nice when practice begins to catch up with the evidence. Thank you for posting this midwife-friendly piece.”
