I'm planning on moving. Where can I find information about high risk pregnancy, hospitals, mfm doctors, nicus?

Medical Society: Most towns have a medical society which is familiar with the local docs or resources. You can also call any local hospital or better yet, ask an l & d nurse whom she'd use. Other options include phone directories, web-sites, or see if your current doc knows someone. Acog also has a doctor "finder" feature which is helpful to find a board-certified doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Fetal center.: Your baby's case should be managed according to a multidisciplinary fetal care center recommendations, with input from pediatric cardiology, maternal-fetal medicine, neonatology and obstetrics. A pre-labor cesarean delivery is not necessary for most avsds, especially if the fetus is syndromic (down?). On the other hand, if fetal testing is non-reassuring then prompt delivery may prove life-saving. ...Read more

Curvature of cornea: These numbers are diopter power readings of the surface of the cornea. These measurements can be taken with a Keratometer or Corneal Topographer. Tha amount of corneal astigmatism is the difference between the two numbers for each eye.

No future risk: I'm sorry that happened. Chromosomal abnormalities occur at a low rate. The rate is the same for future pregnancies. Statistically speaking, it would be incredibly rare for this to happen to you twice. And there is no danger to your own health. ...Read more

Give it time: It can seem overwhelming to be pregnant again with three children. You have just finished with the diaper stage of the twins and now you will have to start over again. But this is how you feel today, you may not feel the same after a month or so. Talk it over with your spouse, family members or other trusted friends. Talking about your feelings will help you with perspective and decisions. ...Read more

I'm 34 weeks pregnant (second baby) with no complications. I'm flying home to deliver and my doc prescribed me the proluton depot injection is it ok?

Progesterone: This is a type of Progesterone injection. For people at risk of preterm delivery it is often given in a specific way. I am not familiar with any evidence suggesting a benefit of a one time dose before travel. If you are at high risk of preterm labor then you probably should not be getting on a plane. Clarify the plan and your unique pregnancy risk assessment with your doctor before traveling. ...Read more
