I've been in high risk for preterm labor since my first child had this issue,but my previous obgyn able to stop my labor. This dr.I saw for a few times:she never measure my belly,never run a test for resting HR in my baby.Literally she didn't do anything even i was a high risk patient.I even had a vaginal leakage with smell and I told her about it.She did only a bacterial swab w/o any indemnification what kind of league it was. Not pay close attention to your health.I ended up gave a birth at 31wks.Also,she never reports your US results..
