    Pregnancy and hot tubs: looking for MT News blip

    I'm trying to find a "Midwifery News" blip on the safety of hot water immersion in pregnancy.  I can't find it, and I've looked all the way back to #71/Autumn 2004.  It was on a study refuting the myth that hot tubs are dangerous in pregnancy; the research indicated that submersion in 104 F water for up to 30 minutes didn't raise core body temp enough to cause concerns.  But I can't find the article to cite!

    Any help? Either pointing me in the direction of the bulletin in MT, or find something online? I'm not having any luck!
