Maybe pregnant women should start smoking and drinking again? We didn't have these problems 50 years ago, before all of the "protections" and
warnings and education given to mothers. They used to go to the doctor once or twice during a pregnancy! Once to find out if the rabbit died, and
sometimes a second time for delivery. That second visit was optional!!!
They didn't take Folic Acid supplements, they didn't go for 2 or 3 or more ultrasounds. They didn't get 3d/4d ultrasounds to have prenatal
photographs. They didn't intrude on the baby much at all! The mothers still did their daily duties, whether at home or at work.
Ahhh better times. And healthier babies!
Actually both of my babies were born prematurely, and it turns out their mother has Celiac's disease? That was unheard of until just a few years
ago, and now it is becoming almost a fad! She is allergic to Wheat, or actually Gluten, so she wasn't absorbing nutrients, and she was malnourished
during the pregnancy.
So, in true American style, who can I blame? Docs? Mom? Monsanto and Bioengineered Seeds? FDA? Surely there is someone to sue for this!! Nobody
was allergic to Wheat 50 years ago, and babies were healthier!!
Let's see......first it was Milk and Casein Allergies, and babies had to switch to Soy Milk. Then it was alcohol and smoking causing low birth
weights, so they regulated that. Now it is Wheat?
I know a very cute little 18 year old prostitute that got pregnant last year. She continued "working" for about 6-7 months! She drank and smoked A
LOT! She was homeless some of the time, and she bounced from crashpad to crashpad. She didn't eat right, or go to the doctor much. She had an 8.5
lb healthy baby!!!
