Thanks for the data
Rebecca, I am so grateful for you and the access you are giving people to real data. I feel like so many people educate from secondary sources. I’m always wanting to know the source of information given by my dr, doula, friends. Two things, first my care provider tried to get me worked up at 20 weeks about having a “big baby”. Your article gave me confidence to make my own informed decisions. PS I’m 6ft tall and had a 7.5 lb baby at 39+ weeks. Looking back I can see how my caregiver was trying to shift control to her side, by using fear. Second, is there any chance you could break down research on the glucose screening test? I eat a 90% paleo diet and I refused the test because I was afraid of what my body would do with the crappy ingredients in the Glucola. My MD was not open to alternatives like eating the same amount of sugar in the form of organic candy or juice. She ordered the test, I refused to go. After a few weeks she did a few blood tests and was happy enough with the results. Anyway, I don’t understand why it’s best practice for R/O GD is to feed a mother Glucola. I would love to hear what the research actually says. And if there is any support for alternatives. Thanks again and keep up the good work!
