Abstract:

The juxtaposition of medical science and Old Wives' Tales is explored. Examples are given in which both sources of knowledge have been helpful, useless, or even harmful. A culture in which the health care consumer feels free to question and selectively use or reject elements from both sources of knowledge is essential in order for the “trust your body” message of perinatal education to be heard.

Keywords: Old Wives' Tales; medical science; perinatal education
