    Haaretz has done a disservice to publish this personal story. The author is angry about her experience and is now personally convinced that her medical care during childbirth caused her problems rather than saved her baby from possible damage if she had not had the care. We will not know if the outcome would have been better or worse if she had only midwife care without hospital or medical care. What we do know is that the incidence of baby and mother mortality is rare from today's care than compared to common as it was back in the 19th century as she pines for. For sure there previously more common baby brain damage is far else, fistulas of the mother between bladder, rectum, and vagina are hardly ever seen in regions with care (but are common reasons to ostracize victims in Africa), urinary incontinence is less in mothers, and the list goes on. Haaretz has erred by presenting this one story, begun as one of many disasters, without balancing it with the advantages. This is journalism at its worst, to possibly influence readers to, in this case, refuse important care and to contribute to future deaths and maiming of babies and mothers. Haaretz owes readers a counter article with data and other conclusions.
