Article suggesting mom avoid OBs?

Just saw this article, and thought I would post and see if others had thoughts! It suggests that mothers seek out a family practictioner or midwife instead of an OB in order to avoid a c-section, and I immediately thought of past discussions on the PF forum about negative experiences with family pra...

New Jersey Perinatal Specialist?

Re: So angry.

I wanted to add a hug and a note to say that I can relate to the anxiety and anger, and to share that I got a lot of relief from seeing a therapist who specializes in women's issues and reproductive issues.

Immune deficiency?

It has been a long time since I posted, but found out some new info about my health, and in case it is at all related to PE and might help others, I thought I should make a note! :) I thought I remembered reading (and am pulling up a couple of posts on search) about testing for immune issues as a po...

Re : Lovenox dosage question and dilemma

I was on one shot of prefilled lovenox each day until the end, when I was switched to heparin. I bruised quite a bit while on the lovenox. Good luck with finding answers!!

Re : Did you have a flu shot while pregnant?

I did, during both my PE and my PE-free pregnancies. During my PE-free pregnancy last year I got both the regular flu shot and the H1N1 shot. Both times I got preservative free, although my OBs said it wasn't necessary.
