What I Learned Undercover at a Crisis Pregnancy Center
What are your top five fallacies about pregnancy? One is that much of the evidence suggested an occasional drink is OK. Bed rest is not a great idea. Gaining too much weight may in fact be less risky than gaining too little weight. Sushi is OK. And coffee in moderation is fine. And in terms of toxoplasmosis, which is a parasitic infection that can cause birth defects, when I looked at the data on this, there’s actually no evidence that women who clean the cat litter box or have cats are more likely to get this, but I do see some links between doing a lot of outdoor gardening and having this infection.

Other vitamins in red raspberry include: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, B Vitamins, phosphorus, potassium, manganese and magnesium, Vitamin E and many other minerals. Quite a few studies have been conducted to test the affects of pregnant women who used red raspberry leaf during pregnancy. It was found, by researchers in Australia, that women who ingested red raspberry leaf regularly were less likely to have Cesarean births and use of forceps dropped by 35%. Another study showed women who took raspberry leaf experienced shortened stage-two labor significantly as well as an improved third stage. Benefits included less risk bleeding after birth as well. Red raspberry is good for all women, not just pregnant women, as it feeds the reproductive system vital nutrients and brings the hormones into harmony and balance. Those who experience painful or irregular menstrual cycles can find a regulation occurring with the use of red raspberry and those women who are prone to miscarry can use red raspberry to assist in carrying the baby to term.

Pregnancy Loves Raspberry Leaf
They advertise to scared women who need help, and they claim to offer unbiased information, guidance, and support to those who need it. But instead CPCs treat women the way they treated me — like disobedient children who need to be schooled in religion and saved from their own decisions. To them a woman is a vessel for a future baby, nothing more. Ultimately, my undercover CPC investigations allowed me to witness firsthand the cruelty and deception at the heart of the anti-choice movement. As a result, I am even more dedicated to ensuring that every woman has the freedom to make her own deeply personal reproductive health decisions. Surprisingly, I also realized that I agree with Virginia CPCs on one point: when a woman walks through their doors, a life is at stake.
