I think you’re pragmatic analysis of our pathetic treatment and medical care of our pregnant women is tragic but true. Gone are the days of Marcus Welby to the rescue!
Urban care has become computerized, corporate, and profit driven organizations that are dealing with staff shortages and have lost their ability to connect to their individual patients. Sad! Rural medicine, technically, is even worse! Not because there are not caring medical professionals, but there are not enough trained bodies to go around!
Why these problems have not been addressed is still a mystery to me. But I can still buy an AR-15, 30 round clips, and amo, ya lots of amo!!
