Hi, Anne. I'm not Tom but thought I'd toss out a couple of ideas for you.
Focusing narrowly on pregnancy issues is fine as far as it goes but you're leaving out a lot of the much needed issues both before and after pregnancy. You see, the best pregnancy begins long before actual insemination. I'm talking about physical preparation as in having the right nutrients to avoid things like spina bifida and being in the best possible fitness before trying to have a baby. The folks who are out of their minds with pain and depression and so on are usually the ones who are least equipped, physically, to handle things. So, prepare the body to receive and nurture first.
Next consider the after-effects of pregnancy. This is an area that is glossed over much too much and it has lifetime consequences if things aren't handled right. It can affect everything from your spouse relations to wearing a bikini (no, I'm not kidding!). The body goes through rapid and very dramatic changes and some of these changes are permanent and will never return to the previous status no matter what one does. Too many people having their first child (or planning to) never give a thought to these things. Things like changes in the positioning of the internal organs (often leading to pain), bladder collapse, episiotomies and so on not to mention a kangaroo pouch effect, stretch marks and other nasty let downs.
Suggestion: if you have a blog, you might elicit a very active and responsive group of older folks who could interact with the young pregnant ones. It'd be one great way to get the ball rolling fast, IMHO. Encourage visitors to ask open ended questions, encourage responses from those who've been there done that and so on.
Hope this is some help.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
