Natasha addresses one of my longstanding pet peeves: the tendency to see pregnant women as nothing more than the vessels for their babies and the entitlement people feel to pass judgment on what they do, eat, drink, etc. Various "dos and don'ts" fads come and go, perhaps supported by some study or another, and women who fail to subscribe to them appropriately are treated with great disapproval.

It ain't your body, it ain't your baby. Piss off.
