* Don't stop researching when you find the answers you want.
* Please remember that there is absolutely no ethical way to PROVE that ultrasound, including dopplers, is safe for the unborn and there will be no funding for studies to prove that this cash cow is dangerous.
* Study the many ways this technology is applied, connect the dots.  HOWEVER, Just based on how they respond to it, we need to stop shooting sound waves at babies.

Just to be completely honest.... I had one ultrasound with one of my babies and cried the whole time....she kept turning her face right and left trying to get away from it but she was trapped. That experience made me more determined than ever to research this topic and share what I find. (I also used a doppler on her several times....she is by far the shortest of my children...none of the rest had any ultrasound exposure.)

I am opposed to all doppler use and think that there are very few times when a scan is warranted.  This has always been my opinion and I never owned a doppler nor did I ever use one on any baby other than my own (That short period of time with Jessie a few times when I was concerned about her figure....what faulty logic I was using.  I am mortified looking back on it.)  '

Please share this note with your friends....if the actual data that is damning concerning babies doesn't change their minds....maybe just reading about the other uses of the technology would help them connect the dots.. it cleans rust off of pipes, it kills sperm, it heats muscles, it changes the migratory patterns of whales........IF more mothers are stroking during pregnancy, birth and right after....could it be connected to the ultrasound breaking up clots as one of my brilliant students pointed out today? We need to take this seriously and not brush it off as another "birth choice".....if there is potential to harm babies that outweighs the potential to help babies, should it be considered a choice? If the potential to help outweighs the potential to harm (and how the heck would we ever actually know that since we can neither predict or measure the potential harm to any individual baby at any given moment) then it would be appropriate use of technology but even then should be used only by those with calibrated machines under strict guidelines based on actual other words uncalibrated dopplers would NOT be considered safe....under any circumstances....ever dropped the bag the doppler is in? there goes the calibration....Start with these, and if you find more you think I should add to the list, please let me know.  Babies are worth our best efforts....really.

If you are a midwife who uses a doppler, please reconsider it.  We just don't know what we are doing to babies OR mothers by rearranging things through sound, do we? I am not willing to take the risk.
