No, not at all. Modern medicine is wonderful, and there are a lot of doctors doing really great work.

Yeah, I totally agree that the magnitude of the problem is certainly part of the issue, and that IVF offers an easy path forward for those who can't conceive. Still it's depressing when you conceive easily, lose the baby, and the doctors have no clue (a few of my friend's stillbirths have been birth control failures, so they weren't even trying).
