^^This right here^^ HUGE pet-peeve of mine; hearing women say "well my dr wouldnt sugest it if it weren't safe". Oh how I wish this were true! but unfortunately - it's not!

And it goes much further than just OTC meds. What about all the many *routine* medical interventions done before, during and after labor that we have no scientific research to prove safe? We're all guinea pigs! It's sad that the patient has to be their own advocate!
