The chronicle of the journey from infertility, to miscarriage, to finally raising twin girls born in June 2012.

Elizabeth Pantley

Elizabeth Pantley, you are officially on my shit list.

I just received a newsletter about your new book "The No-Cry Separation Anxiety Solution".

As a person who is authoring how to reduce anxiety, how on earth is it appropriate for you to spam a miscarriage mama/infertility blogger with unwanted information about your new book on how to take care of a baby?  

And when I reach the bottom of the newsletter to try to find the obligatory "Click here to unsubscribe" link, which WAS NOT PRESENT!  Instead I find a picture, life sized on my screen, of a blue eyed baby girl who is just about the same age that my own blue eyed ginger girls are supposed to be right now.

It's not even a subtle picture, seriously, it's a big giant baby face coming at me from the computer screen.

I don't know how I ended up on any kind of mailing list that would indicate that I want information about raising babies.  Anything I might have browsed for during my pregnancy was unsubscribed from, and scrubbed free from my computer over 8 months ago.  And there's no way that I was worried about separation anxiety while still in my second trimester.

You are a spammer.  Your marketing methods completely contradict any authority you are trying to create as someone who can teach us how to reduce anxiety.  

Knock it off bitch.
