This Ad appeared in the Montgomery Ward flyer of the Chicago Tribune 1/17/99
Mother feeding with baby bottle. What gives here? Does the mattress company nor The Chicago Tribune know that doctors recommend breastfeeding as the best way to feed your baby? Do they not care that so many children are getting 2nd best?
This is an ad in the Chicago Tribune in January, 1999, taken out by Lake Forest Hospital in Illinois. Notice the headlines on the sides: "This is a Great Beginning" and "Smiles, Hugs And Music." What is this, a Marriott Hotel? They say, "You're a Guest, Not a Patient." Then, why do they want to incarcerate midwives for "practicing medicine without a license." Not a patient; incredible admission.
Of course they don't tell you that in 1992 (the latest statistics available) Lake Forest Hospital had a 27.6% Caesarian Section rate (508 out of 1,841 live births) and NO neonatal ICU provisions. Perhaps you have improved since then, Lake Forest Hospital? If so, please send me your latest statistics.
Send me your Hall of Shame newspaper ads. I'll put them up here.
