Social media giving birth to new generation of parents-to-be

 You're in labor. Is there an app for that? There ought to be, based on the information gleaned through a new survey of more than 1,000 pregnant women conducted by American Baby magazine and Good Books, publisher of the "Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy."… I was surprised by the social networking data," says Myra Wick, co-medical editor of the "Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy" and a practicing obstetrician/gynecologist at the Mayo Clinic. "But we are starting to see people texting and other things while they're in labor. I guess I'm just kind of old-school in that I think of labor and delivery as being kind of private."
