Dear religious pregnant patients,
Please do not use pseudoreligion to cover up your ignorance. If you have gestational diabetes so uncontrolled that you need insulin, please take it. Don’t just default your follow up and decide not to record your blood sugar levels. If the doctor tells you that they need to induce labour as your diabetes is too out of control, please listen instead of refusing to see the doctor until youre about to pop out a baby. Perhaps your 10min of googling gestational diabetes may replace my 5 years of medical school, the 20 years of experience of specialists, and hey, maybe God will protect you and your baby. But if he dies in your womb because of your ignorance, its not just god’s will, its also you. Yes whatever god wills,will happen, but god also gave us brains to think and come up with modern medicine. He gave us reasoning and ideas to come up with new scientific findings. Religion does not want to burden their followers, so please don’t give me that shit. And to not vaccinate your newborn child for tuberculosis in an area where tuberculosis in endemic is just effing stupid. We didn’t just come up with this shit, scientists spend years developing vaccines backed with trials so that your kids get to live healthy and public health data show that it works.
That is all.
