Ok I have heard many talk about how Oprah wont respond or do a show on pregnancy, infant loss, pre-eclampsia etc well I was just thinking and wanted to throw an idea out http://boards.oprah.com/WebX?14@@.ef45793!DYNID=0F234LG2WNCFBLARAZ2RNWQ she has that message board on her site they showcase the most popular topics etc so what if we all picked one day to go and sign up and share our stories under the same topic then it would get showcased and maybe get noticed enough she would be forced to aknowledge it?? Just an idea let me know what you think.

I think it's a fabulous idea. I love Oprah's show...and her magazine. The magazine especially is always full of positive things for women. I think it's worth the effort on our part.

I think the reason she doesn't explore the issues is oprah lost a baby to prematurity when she was 15.

I think its a great idea and I enjoy Oprah but I think she chooses topics based on "her" - I do think at times she is biased...I only say this because I wrote to her for 3 weeks straight, every day, through her online process - NOTHING. It is very frustrating...she of all people could really help.
