how would you feel about an "EMERGENCY" section?

Meaning a section for moms saying"NEED HELP NOW", or similar postings....

  • Meh - if it was an Emergency I would hope they would just call 911 or their doctor or their kids doctor.......KWIM?

  • Omg, I totally read this first as "emergency c-section", lol. Anyways, that would be kinda cool except for that fact that if it was true emergency, I'd hope they would call 911 and not be asking women on Cafemom.

  • I also thought this was going to be a question about emergency c sections. I would hope if someone was having an emergency they wouldn't be wasting time on here.

  • Yeah, I thought c section too. It might be nice to have a section or category where you knew you'd get a response quickly. Not every "emergency" is a call 911 kind of thing. I mean it could be something like "I'm baking a cake and don't have ____, what can I use instead" or some other thing that you need a response to quickly, but it isn't an actual emergency. KWIM? I wouldn't call it "emergency" though.

  • well I woud hope they would call 911, aand I am sure a ton of moms would respond"why are you playing online call your doctor" but the fact is everyday we ALL see these was curious so I could take it to the team maybe. thanks.:)

  • I think an emergency section would be a great idea. It would help a lot of moms with minor emergencies and not major ones to where they should be calling 911 right away... But I think it would be good since we see lots of emergency type questions right away.
