Dr Munro was incredible. I was 34 years old at the time I became pregnant with my daughter and had a very problematic pregnancy. Dr Munro did every thing within the limits of safety & responsibility to provide my daughter and I the best possible outcome. He went out of his way for my family and I, and if I ever become fabulously wealthy, I would dedicate a wing to him at the hospital. Took the most frightening time in my life and made it pleasant. He truly cares about his patients.
Doctor Munro did not listen to my concerns while pregnant. My daughter was born 10weeks early due to his negligence. She passed away last November.

Dr. Munro did not take a medical condition I had very seriously while I was pregnant. I had a very painful pregnancy and all I would ever hear was, you're on the weird end of normal. The last Tri of my pregnancy I could barely walk, couldn't feel my legs, was retaining WAY too much water, higher blood pressure and my skin pitted when poked. I was told I was fine and wasn't even check for preeclampsia. I was very sick and grey after birth. A lot of pain could've been avoided if he would listen.
