- Lies, More Lies, and "DAMNED" Lies

Last Updated: 10/26/2012

Lies I've heard this week:

  • I already did my homework.
  • I didn't hear you.
  • I forgot.
  • You never told me that!
  • Yes, your hair looks good.
  • No, that doesn't make you look fat.

More lies.....

  • If you don't go in labor by 39 weeks, you'll have to be induced
  • If your cervix isn't checked for progress, you can't give birth.
  • If your fundus does not measure exactly the same as your weeks gestation, you measure too small/too large.
  • Your baby can't be discharged from the hospital without a pediatrician appointment scheduled (and signed off BY said pediatrician)
  • Homogenized/pasteurized regular store milk is perfectly safe.
  • Raw milk is dangerous.
  • All ear infections should be treated with antibiotics.
  • It's not legal to birth at home.

Damned lies.....

  • Vaccination = Immunization.
  • Vaccination makes/keeps you healthy.
  • Vaccination is perfectly safe.
  • You can't go to school without vaccinations.
  • You can't travel overseas without vaccinations.
  • Hormonal birth control is safe and the only option available.
  • Induction is perfectly safe.
  • Amalgam fillings are safe.
  • You need fluoride to prevent cavities.
  • You cannot heal a cavity, except by filling it.
  • Once a c-section, always a c-section.
  • If you've had 2 c-sections then a VBAC is WAY MORE DANGEROUS than a repeat c-section.
  • Only double layer suturing is safe for a VBAC attempt.
  • Ultrasounds are perfectly safe.
  • If it wasn't safe, no doctor would recommend it.
  • Newborns need hats to prevent heat loss.
  • Antibiotics during labor is harmless.
  • Epidural anesthesia doesn't reach the baby.
  • Use of a breast shield means your baby won't gain weight, and you will HAVE to supplement with formula.
  • Midwifery is illegal in Ohio.
  • Antidepressants are safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
  • Antidepressants are the first line of treatment for depression.
  • God created pharmaceuticals
  • God gave us doctors and expects us to use them.


What's the difference?  The "Damned Lies" condemn you to a detrimental and sometimes incredibly devastating result if you believe them.  This is so much more harmful when the advise comes from a professional or someone else you trust. Please nevermind anybody that says, "trust me, I'm a doctor" (or lawyer, or teacher, or WHATEVER).....do your OWN RESEARCH. 

There is really only ONE Person you can COMPLETELY trust.
