Jennifer Gunter @DrJenGunter The Gray Lady’s gynecologist (@NYTStyles), sexpert, appropriately confident, lasso of truth, I speak for no one but me. The Vagina Bible (8/27), Jensplaining. Apr. 07, 2019 1 min read

We do not call it baby surgery, we call it fetal surgery
We do not call it baby demise, we call it fetal demise

We do not call it a baby echo, we call it a fetal echo
We do not call it a baby heart rate monitor, we call it a fetal heart rate monitor
We do not call it a baby demise, we call it an intrauterine fetal demise (IUFD)

You know who looks after babies? Pediatricians.
You know who looks after fetuses? An obstetrician.

We do not call it baby hydrops, we call it fetal hydrops

I assume you #forcedbirther types now understand the difference between fetus and baby
