I was at the OB's office today and happened to read the magazine and was delighted to read the article!!! Nice job, Anne and Dr. Easterling too. There was another "Birth Story" about a woman who was diagnosed with PE (Denise referenced it too)- I thought it was interesting b/c it read something like "...told me I had toxemia (preeclampsia)..." I thought that 'toxemia' was an old-school term. Do docs still use it?
I chuckled b/c I opened the magazine to all the beautiful models with big bellies and thought to myself, 'oh yeah? where's the article on preeclampsia?' As if on cue... there it was!!! [:D]
Anyway, it felt like a little piece of home in there!
