Dear consuelo: I have heard many sad stories about the long hard cervix. Glad your involvement had a happy ending.

Into my erratic memory popped the word "alpha tocopherol" = Vitamin E Couldn't figure out why. So I looked it up:
itamin E was the fifth vitamin discovered when researchers found that a dietary
deficiency in laboratory rats produced fetal death in pregnant females. The name
"tocopherol" was derived from the Greek words for childbirth (tos), to bring forth
(phero), and the chemical designation for an alcohol (ol). Vitamin E acts as a
co-enzyme in cellular membranes and serves as a scavenger for free radicals that
are destructive to the membrane and internal cellular components. Natural sources of
vitamin E are vegetable oils, sunflower seeds, almonds, and peanuts.
