I was reading this link for a different reason, but this study says that the infections "from the birth canal" that the eye ointment protects against are ACTUALLY picked up after the birth from the hospital, not the mother at all!

*sigh* I love how ignorant some docs can be. They read research studies saying that these things aren't beneficial, in fact they can be downright harmful yet they continue to administer their ointments and injections because someone somewhere isn't comfortable with changing an archaic tradition. It's pathetic.
