Re the snub of TV networks on birth control campaigns: The Dutch have practically no problem with teen-age pregnancy. They also provide condoms through ubiquitous vending machines. We, on the other hand, have more teen-age pregnancy than any other industrialized country, while allowing a vocal, "religious" minority to intimidate an entire media industry. SUSU LEVY Encino

Gisele Bündchen is a proud mommy! The supermodel wife of quarterback Tom Brady has debuted their baby girl on Facebook. "Love is everything! Happy friday, much love to all," Bündchen captioned a photo of herself carrying, and gazing at her new daughter Vivian Lake, who is wearing a frilly little dress in the pic. The message was also translated in Portuguese, the Brazilian model's native language.  E! Online was first to have images of the baby from the family's trip to Hawaii.

I have just read Peter Steinfels' review of "Politics, Power and the Church" (The Book Review, Sept. 27) and it provokes a recommendation. You scrupulously identify your reviewer. Steinfels is the editor of Commonweal. When you are publishing a review of an evidently contentious and controversial book, ask the reviewer to tell the reader a few facts about the author. Who is Lawrence Lader? What else has he written? What are his qualifications--if any? Steinfels' half page critique finds nothing in Lader's work except bad logic and rampant bigotry.

The first question is whether you want documentary evidence of childbirth. If the answer is yes, there are a few things to consider: Pros : Mothers can catch magical moments they missed during the event itself. Cons : Professionals say mothers must be careful who is invited into the birthing space. Maternal stress can hinder the actual birth. Cost : Jodie Myers (www.mybirthmovie.com) charges $1,395 for raw footage of a home-birth, up to $3,500 for an edited, documentary-quality short film shot in the hospital.
