Families lose out again – particularly women and children

“Those that cannot budget to procreate – shouldn’t! ” Indeed. Let’s make sure women decide the exact right moment to reproduce. If they get it wrong, or chose a partner who dies, leaves them, abuses them or makes them deeply unhappy, screw ‘em. It’s their fault for choosing to carry, give birth to and raise the next generation, right?

My plea for a better quality discussion on breastfeeding

It makes me sad every time I see an apparently well-intentioned opinion piece on breastfeeding or other health matters filled with statements that any doctor could tell you is false or misleading.
