Journalist looking for visually impaired, pregnant women

Hi

I'm writing an article about a doctor who is using 3 dimensional printing to make models of fetuses so that expecting mothers can better experience their ultrasounds.

Are you having a baby? Would you ever consider using this technology? If so, I would very much like to hear from you.

My email is morgenpeck@yahoo.com

Many thanks,
Morgen Peck

Re: Journalist looking for visually impaired, pregnant women



Hi
I know of two women who are totally blind and pregnant, this would an amazing way of enhancing their experience, where you able to find anyone for your article?


requesting women's email addresses



In this age of email viruses, hacking and general bad behavior on the net, I often post this kind of message when folks ask for email addresses of blind people, particularly women. Please take a moment to understand where I am coming from.
I did a search on your name. You seem to work for Slate Magazine. Many women may be willing to assist you in your investigation but may be reluctant, for security reasons, to give you an email contact. You may want to respect this concern as follows:
provide some verification of your journalism credentials and provide a contact at Slate where women can verify that you are who you say you are rather than asking for email addresses. Otherwise, it sounds too much like email harvesting and may raise concerns.
