We've tried reaching producers and the family - if anyone has access, please either connect us or reach out directly. I would love for the PF to be recognized as a resource when the show airs, at least on Discovery's online edition.

Hi Eleni, I think one of the early posts about the Duggar family was written by someone with a connection to the family? I tried searching for the post but can't seem to locate it.

I also just saw the following article on AOL, and was horrified by some of the reader comments (basically saying something bad was bound to happen after having had many kids) --
http://www.parentdish.com/2010/01/28/duggars-present-baby-19?icid=main|htmlws-main-n|dl3|link5|http%3A%2F%2Fwww.parentdish.com%2F2010%2F01%2F28%2Fduggars-present-baby-19 (may have to copy paste the link, I guess the length & my lack of computer skills are messing it up)

It really bothers me (mainly for PE awareness, but also for the Duggars' sake) that people could be (and apparently are) mistakenly thinking that PE is caused by having a certain number of kids. I don't know what to do about it, and am sure that the PF is doing everything it can to get the real facts out there, I just wish that the news would give correct info on PE to the extent reporters mention the disease.
