I am also new to the forums and from the Boston area. I am currently researching MFM doctors for when we are ready to try again. I know you can't post any recommendations on the site, but if anyone could private message me I would greatly appreciate it.

Hello Lisa,

Welcome to the boards! I will send you a PM with the MFM I am seeing and that I have also recommended.

Welcome Lisa!

I haven't seen an MFM yet, but I can offer an opinion after I go, if you are interested. I found this thread in the "Ask the Experienced" section, which you might find helpful. It covers a list of questions to ask your OB/MFM.: http://www.preeclampsia.org/forum/viewt ... 12&t=14035

Hi Diana,

Thanks for the link to the thread, it was very helpful and a good place to start in making my own list of questions. I would be very interested in your opinion after meeting with a MFM if you wouldn't mind sharing. I'm not going to be making an appointment until the summer time as I am not emotionally ready yet and I was told by my ob that I would have to wait at least 6 months ttc.

Hi ladies,

I'd be interested also about your respective pre-consults. If you have any other questions just ping me:-)
