A right Royal mess: Why is RCGP still endorsing ‘Emma’s Diary’?


Personally I have always tended to view most sources of information on pregnancy outside of academic tomes as very open for debate about it's quality. For advice for pregnant women (and their partners should they attend also) I direct them to the NHSChoices website. I have no strong feelings about where else people choose to look but have never directed patients to Emma's Diary. As to worrying what the RCGP endorses I am somewhat more concerned with GPFV than a rarely used or referred to resource hidden under several clicks on the RCGP website. But I guess one can pick ones battles. I have little doubt that male privilege means I cannot appreciate the annoyance as acutely as others and perhaps this is why I'm left considering the size of fish and their frying.
