We are the Borg

What happens when the BirthTrack meets the LaborPro?
Birthing women become the Borg.

Don't worry--some intrepid bloggers have deconstructed both of these menacing gadgets for you. Read my analysis of the BirthTrack: More! Better! BirthTrack! (TM). And Nursing Birth, a L&D nurse, just wrote about LaborPro: The WORST Idea Since Routine Continuous Fetal Monitoring for Low Risk Mothers.

Let's beat back the Borg invasion before it's too late!
