Just a quick reminder to all the expecting mommies! Read and bump please!

There has been concern expressed over advice being given in these forums.

I just want everyone to be aware that advice is coming from someone based on something they have been told or have themselves done.It comes from our life experiences. Each experience being different.

I'll use myself for example. I may tell someone that I tested GBS+ and used such and such to treat.You will then have other mothers coming from a different approach and their ideas on what to do may vary quite a bit.It doesn't make them wrong,doesn't make me wrong. It just means that two different women came to two different conclusions on what to do. I would never want someone to come along,read my post and say "hmm, I'll do that" without actually looking into it on their own. I'd say the same thing applies to those who are actually in the medical field and give advice here. Mistakes happen as the result of medical advice as well..

On everything in life, rather it is from pregnancy,labor,delivery,babyhood and childhood, don't let a random post an the internet be the final say. Let them be a jumping off point into doing more research on your own.


Post on here shouldn't be the final word in diagnose or treatment.
It is up to each of us to further educate ourselves on anything that impacts our health and that of our children. I'd think that's a given but just wanted to be sure mama's do actually know this

There are so many wonderful ladies here, and so many varying opinions on a vast array of topics! It is most definitely imperative that what is said here - by anyone - is simply used as a springboard to do more research and gain more knowledge so that one may make the best decision for their family.

An excellent reminder, thank you.

Yes! I have had several friends/acquaintances ask about my use of castor oil and I will share but always remind them not to do anything without asking their care provider first! I would hate for anyone to do something risky just because it worked for so-and-so online!

Yes! Thank you for posting this! As much as I hate to say it, no one knows for sure whether or not someone here is a medical professional. And even if they are, no one should take advice as final rule, especially when none of us are privy to their medical history.

That being said, I love that there are so many opinions, experiences, and suggestions of varying kinds on this forum. It always gives me an opportunity to look at a situation in a way I might not have otherwise, and research accordingly. As long as it's used to help a mama further her knowledge and research on something, I'm all for it! Just keep common sense and safety in mind

Good advice, mama. Each person is different and will have different ways to handle things and different needs. I have found varying views helpful on finding something that works for me.
