I don't know if you regular forum-type people are aware of this, but our noble website (spacefem.com) gets visited a couple thousand or so pregnant women every month because when I was pregnant, I made a due date calculator script (http://spacefem.com/pregnant/daily.php
). It did the job of telling me how pregnant I was, and wasn't surrounded by a million ads and links and email offers and pink scary baby crap. It's been popular.
I am here to announce that I've morphed it into the Daily Wikipedia Pregnancy Blog. The gist is that for every day of pregnancy, and even some days that aren't pregnancy, it will show you a Wikipedia article to read. I loved weekly pregnancy blogs, loved reading up on fetal development and the history of prenatal care, but didn't feel like my personal commentary would add much for my subscribers. Most of what they need to know is on Wikipedia, and if it's not there, well, we can work together to get it there! Right?
The article list a long and diverse, covering topics both medical and cultural, about pregnancy, childbirth, and babies. You will learn the basics of the female reproductive system, if you don't about know that stuff already. You will see titles of movies about pregnancy, from important ones like The Business of Being Born to not so important ones like Lethal Weapon IV. You will learn about the history of medicine, so you can ask yourself why so many midwives in previous centuries were accused of being witches.
If you know of an article I missed, feel free to suggest it here! Pregnant women need to know about all kinds of things and it's up to all of us to work together to educate them. I am only an expert on one pregnancy (the one I had) but I'm terribly curious about all others because it's a fascinating subject.
