absolutely they are entirely well-versed on the subjects of pregnancy and childbirth and the complications that may arise during either. but their area of expertise does not extend beyond that; and i'm certain some mothers prefer to have expertise in other matters at their beck and call.Don't you think midwives are just as well informed medically?
I have a copy of this from the 70's. My mom showed me this book when I was 3 and she was pregnant with my brother. Recently I saw my mom was going to get rid of it, so I took it. Those pictures are so great, not only of the biology, but the people involved.Originally posted by Kreeli
