Teenage Pregnancy Rates Are Out Of Control…

and pregnancy in highschool-ers is an epidemic! You hear people say it all the time, but do they really know what they’re talking about? Check out this chart I found today showing teen birth rates since the 1940s…  Information & Image Courtesy of FamilyFacts.org …probably not what you expected, huh? It definitely took me by surprise. It seems like the dominant assumption in the US is that teen pregnancy rates are currently out of control. However, something […]

Organ Donation – Five Years Ago Today

Become An Organ Donor – Find Your State It was Spring Break, 2006 – my second Spring Break of college. We laid on the beach in Rocky Point, Mexico all morning and, sometime around noon, made our way back inside for lunch and a quick nap.  I had strict instructions from my mom not to call or text anyone while I was out of the country and not to answer any calls if someone tried to […]

Trivia Tuesday

Very little interesting material is flowing from brain to fingers today, so I’m officially instating what will henceforth be known as Trivia Tuesday. I’m a medical student so these will probably usually be some sort of really boring USMLE style question with multiple choice answers, but you never know when I might throw out a random question about coconuts and their associated death rates. Pick your answer and the winner gets a virtual high five. […]

Sticky Fingers & Snotty Faces

My Twitter-friend @MarianneDiNaps has a freakin’ sweet blog (http://blog.timesunion.com/mdtobe) and has gotten me thinking about what to blog on today. I linked her blog so all of my two readers – Mom, Dad – check out Marianne’s blog – could go read what she has to say. What can I say? I like to help a sister out with her blog traffic. So, babies. Aww….I love babies they are so cute. In fact, I might end […]

About The Author

I'm an ObGyn. I started this blog as a medical student (some would call that doctor school) and now I'm working as an Ob/Gyn, which is seriously the coolest job ever. I'm a twin mom and recently added a baby brudder to the mix. My life story through November 2010 can be viewed here. The events in the many years following can be summed up as wedding bells, books, exams, babies, and doctoring. I started this blog in hopes of landing a role in a Lifetime movie so I could quit medicine and move to Hollywood, but that hasn't happened...so if you wouldn't take medical advice from Angelina Jolie, you shouldn't take it from me. I may not even be a real person. In fact, I'm probably a spambot. Or possibly a 15 yo boy blogging from a dingy basement. If you're really interested you can read more about me here. If you have any questions or want to guest post contact me.
