Did you read the discussion section? There are some serious weirdos with no lives out there! Comment #7 was some guy ranting about the evil of sex and childbirth, and how Drs are the minions of Satan by 'helping'. :lol: It was an okay article. I personally think it wasn't in-depth enough.

I was a bit annoyed by the doctor's respose to the canadian study - it compared lowrisk home birth with a midwife to lowrisk hospital birth with a midwife to lowrisk hospital birth with a doctor. He implied that the hospital had higher risk women - so that's why the result were worse - when in fact the study very very deliberately corrected for that. Sigh. (if they hadn't the result would have been Hugely in favor of HB not just slightly)

Right! I wondered if he had even READ the study because he clearly was off base.

:ditto: And don't you just love some of the scare tactics the doctors in the article try to use?
