Grand Rounds - July 11th, 2006

This week's Grand Rounds are being hosted by Donorcycle, a woman (!) who, as she says, "procures organs" from those that are clinically dead so those with sick organs might still have a future.

Please be sure to check out all, if not many, of the notations, including Flea and Neonatal Doc and his post on the new HPV Vaccine.

Agree with these doctors or not, reading their words offers great insights into the minds of medicos. Those of us in alternative healthcare have a responsibility to know and understand where the doctors and nurses are coming from and to listen because they might just have a valid point or three.

It's why I read all the other medical blogs - because the grand majority of women giving birth are in that system and it is important... nay, CRUCIAL... for me to know the inner workings of obstetric and gynecological care.

How else can I argue a valid point if I speak in blind ignorance and sound ridiculously stupid?

Of course, my like-minded HannahFriend of Milliner's Dream has a delightful post showing the similarities between birth and baseball... a delightful alternative to explaining birth as a marathon.

I am headed out for a half-day of prenatals and then will find my way back home to do some more Word Search writing. I've had some rather interesting Googles find their way to this blog. Gotta share.

Enjoy today!

Just wanted to let you know that I discovered your blog today (googled homebirth -- not very exciting compared to those other searches) and I'm really enjoying reading it. I had my first baby at home 11 months ago. I had a wonderful birth experience with my midwife, but I've been depressed by all the new moms around me with their terrible hospital birth stories. (I met six new moms in the last month and every single one of them had a c-section!) So it's really nice to read your blog and know other women out there are getting the same loving care that I received. You sound like a wonderful midwife. And I was really glad to see the pic of the baby with the nuecal (sp?) hand in your archives. My daughter came out like that too! -Sarah in Brooklyn
