Good Grief…

This story is just too much…I have couples in my practice that are just shocked and offended that I won’t order an ultrasound in late pregnancy so that they can find out the sex of their baby. Now this…we’ve turned pregnancy and childbirth into such a heavily planned and orchestrated thing – “I don’t want any technology or invasive procedures, but everything better turn out perfectly”, “I don’t want to know the sex of the baby, but I definitely want the nursery prepared and conforming to an arbitrary design standard by the time the baby’s here”…
Good grief…
