I highly recommend it, I stumbled across it a couple of months ago without knowing the story and it was superb.
Have you flogged 'Irritation' yet?

The sad thing is they still are!!!

"RECORD numbers of women in Britain are dying during pregnancy or shortly after childbirth, with maternal deaths at their highest levels in 20 years, a report due out this week says."

yes but I'm not sure what point you were trying to make. Are you trying to argue that modern medicine/midwifery (post antibiotics, c-section, forceps/ventuce etc) does not make labour safer - or are you arguing that the "noise" on the graph is significant? headline grabbing statistics "worst in 20 years" - the last 20 years has been the safest 2 decades in the last 2000!

The point I was trying to make is that nothing will ever be 100% safe - sometimes people take things for granted too much.
