In the last 8.5 months or so, I’ve learned that there are LOTS of opinions out there on pregnancy and childbirth (shocker). As you can imagine, it can be really overwhelming to try to discern who’s right or wrong. Receiving very stern DMs over breakfast that I ABSOLUTELY CAN NOT EAT PINEAPPLE, etc., can start to wear on you after awhile. But there is one resource that I’ve found to be really trustworthy and calming, Evidence Based Birth, and I really recommend it to anyone currently planning a family. The site contains unbiased summaries of scientific research on common pregnancy and childbirth topics, so all of those panicked text messages about avoiding pineapple won’t phase you in the least.
