Google with care

What an amazing time when everything you ever wanted to know is but a quick search online.  Be careful about the information you may find outside of known resources.  Just because there is  a video on YouTube doesn’t mean that the information is accurate or evidenced based.

Remember to ask those responsible for you and your baby’s wellbeing… the health care professionals you see locally.

Nothing like the human touch.
