A cyanotic newborn with a cord around his throat is why you shouldn't be delivering babies at home with a midwife. This could have been a disaster with almost unimaginably bad consequences. I wonder what our buddy Storkmd1 thinks about this.

Here's an article written by a pediatric hospitalist giving his opinion on chiropractors adjusting newborns. He apparently does not have a favorable opinion.

Quote:
I tell you all this to provide some insight into my utter revulsion at the concept of chiropractors taking part in the care of any newborn infant, let alone one that might require medical intervention to save their life or prevent long-term complications. I realize that readers of Science-Based Medicine are almost certainly aware of the push by many practitioners of so-called alternative medicine to be accepted as a primary care provider or PCP. There are a number of posts that discuss their legal tactics by Jan Bellamy, for instance. And several that point out the absurdity of it all considering the lack of a fund of knowledge and appropriate training that could even remotely qualify them to successfully prevent or treat real medical problems, as opposed to their litany of fictitious ailments.

For this post, which is coming out on the 14th consecutive day that I will spend caring for newborns and hospitalized children, I wanted to provide readers with an example of why the chiropractor as a PCP, specifically one that involves themselves with newborns, is such a dangerous concept. And while I havent spent as many years exposing myself to the world of chiropractic foolishness as some of my fellow SBM contributors, in my opinion this one is up there with the worst of the worst.

A baby was delivered at the home of a midwife apparently nowhere near a proper medical facility. And the worried midwife called a chiropractor who lives almost an hour away for help. This is truly the blind leading the blind.

This medical doctor intelligently explained why the chiropractor was so far off with his chiropractic examination and findings and made the chiropractor look like a dangerous simpleton. It showed that sometimes what is worse than not knowing is not knowing what we don't know. The chiropractor in this case tried to apply what little knowledge that he had to "help" the baby. This chiropractor might have even been a top student and easily passed his boards. The danger is that he didn't understand the difference between science and pseudoscience. Many chiropractor share this problem. They have a lot of nonsense memorized, like an astrologist, but they don't even realize that they are spouting nonsense. During my chiropractic education I would be amazed at how some of the top students in my chiropractic class would wholeheartedly memorize and believe a tremendous amount of nonsense. There is a real risk in offering some chiropractors increased education to expand their scope of practice. How hard will be to deprogram them? Do they even want to be deprogrammed? Very few will want to admit that much of what the have learned and preached is nonsense. It is like a cult. Even Dr. Botnick who has worked hard to eliminate most of his false chiropractic programming, has sometimes seemed to slip into a chiropractic mindset when discussing nutrition or a possible treatment of asthma. I remember how this would greatly upset the often rude and blunt, sometimes brilliant, chiropractic skeptic Teo who used to be a moderator for this forum.
