Re: I love my doctors!

Its wonderful to have good bedside manner, and my MFM's really do. The high risk nurses even treated me like a daughter.....a friend.....I held onto one for dear life when they started prepping for the c section because I was so upset and my MFM came in on her day off becasue she's the only one I wa...

Re: Urinary Tract Infections after PE

I had a severe UTI after my first delivery and during my second pregnancy. I don't know if its related but I was convinced it was related with my first at least. I never had one before pregnancy and now I get them, but I never really thought about it being related much except with my first.

I've never done research on it, but thats what I was told by the old OB. My MFM's do not want me using ANY...
