Moral panic Friday

So, here's a game I like to play that I call 'how to ruin your baby's life before it's even born'.

Just go to Google News and type in 'pregnancy' and see what headlines you get:

  • Smoking in pregnancy risks psychotic children

  • Obese women have higher risk of giving birth to baby with heart defect

  • Stillbirth in first pregnancy raises risk for subsequent pregnancy

  • Anti-depressants pregnancy risk

I actually miss the days when a news search about pregnancy immediately brought up fluffy stories about celebrities and maternity clothes.
