Re : ? For those that have been wronged by OB's

<t>I too wrote a letter to the medical board and my OBs superiors at her practice. My case was also mismanaged terribly. My son and I both lived and are fine after many months of healing. I found it to be a great help to write those letters as they let me release the anger I had built up inside of m...

Re : Roll Call: who is TTC?

Bridget, I am sorry for your loss. I know how frustrating and sad it is when you are ttc and experience loss at any time. I have been TTC for 17 months now with no luck yet. Keep your head up and keep trying I know we are.

Keep up with the doctors appts...
