Hi Michelle,

Seems like there are three things that you can do.

One would be to send the doctor some things to read that will provide
her with accurate information. I wouldn't think that the doctor has
any vested interest in bashing natural henna. So I would assume what
she is spouting is a result of garbage in...garbage out. One good
thing is that this doctor appears to at least know that henna
exists. So providing the useful and correct information may be what
is needed so this person can really be helpful to their
patient...which I assume is the intent. Rather than viewing it as a
battle not worth fighting, you might feel more like providing the written form...if you view it as planting a seed.
Once you know this doctor has the correct information, then trust the
right thing will be done with the correct information. Maybe not in
time for your friend. But when ever the correct information is
digested and used, will be timely for the next person in front of
this doctor seeking advise about obtaining a design with natural

Second, no matter what we may want to give and matter how must be able to be received. It appears that your
friend is not in the position at this point to receive what you are
offering. But, someone will. What you are offering is not going to
fester and spoil. It is with you awaiting the person who can receive
it. Your generosity is wonderful. Just hang on to it and know that
this was not the time...this was not the person. What you may best
be in the position of giving your friend at this time is your
understanding...and still providing her with all of the good wishes
and blessings you wanted to provide with your henna for her and her
baby. The intent of the gesture is what counts. Now you just have
to be creative and offer up the same wishes and desires for her
differently. She is your friend. That is what counts.

Third, her husband is a significant part of her world. You appear to
be quite different from him. Count your blessings that he is not a
significant part of your world...LOL!!! And appreciate your friends
cleverness for having such different people in her life and close to
her. There is something important that she gets from both of you.
Just keep carrying the piece you carry. It seems a nice piece to
counter and balance certain pieces of the husband. That is why
girlfriends are so important. Be her best girlfriend even while
mumbling to yourself...there but for the grace of God go I. And know
that there is someone in each of our lives mumbling the same thing
about some significant other in our own lives...:-)

Take care and await the hand or belly that is on its way to your
henna blessings.
