I want to say lots, but have to run.
- WHY do women believe there is NO "expiration date" on a placenta?!?! How can people with ZERO experience think they are speaking intelligently about this subject when encouraging women to "just wait it out" and that babies ALWAYS come out. (They don't say that some babies come out DEAD. I cannot find that blog of the woman whose baby died from post-dates even when everyone told her to DO something, including the midwife she hired to guide her. I'll look later.)
It is so hard, again, that balance between information and scaremongering. I am not saying let's induce at 37 weeks... or 42 weeks... but for goodness' sake, KNOW what you are talking about before telling a woman with a 44 week pregnancy to relax. Especially when she has a raging headache, swelling into her thighs, and her BP is "really high" (with no number given). When advice to GET HELP was given, those people were screamed at for being assholes about not trusting birth.
Where are people's brains?
I have to run. Grrr.
