Evidence-based pregnancy and birth information

A preggo info site that contains links to Cochrane Reviews, an evidence-based maternity care report, and evidence-based resource links for you and your doctor? Um, yes please.



    1. That website should be spun in gold

      Nice way to accidentally summon Rumpelstiltskin.

  1. Yeah, and no.  I mean, it’s a great improvement over much of what’s out there…

    But at the same time – http://www.childbirthconnection.org/article.asp?ck=10299 – doesn’t make at all clear the differences of kind, degree, or evidentiary strength, behind fetal harm from 
    – alcohol (light use: no indication of harm; heavy use: aaaaah scary) vs. 
    – cannabis (there is some slight evidence that maybe kids whose moms used cannabis in pregnancy end up a little less advanced in analytic intelligence, but also maybe a little more advanced in emotional and linguistic intelligence, and then again that may all just be down to different parenting styles correlating with cannabis use)
