Episode 3.13 Abortion Laws, Lawsuits, and a Defense of American Maternity Care

In this episode, we discuss appropriate use of internal fetal monitors. Then an update on abortion legislation, thoughts about lawsuits, and a discussion of why the US actually has the best maternal and infant care system in the world, not one of the worst. Plus, how abortion restrictions affect our rates of maternal and infant mortality. And a lot about Finland, for some reason.
