    She gave me a big huge and thanked me for everything.She knew something was wrong which is why she came in today.When I looked at the screen I couldnt even speak,my eyes started to water and all I could say was "Im so sorry!"


    Quoting Peaceful.chaos:

    How was she afterwards? I'm not sure I'd have been able to function after that.

    I always call to check on my patients.I have also had a stillborn and 3 miscarriages so I know exactly how it feels.


    Quoting Mychele:

    Oh no. How terrible. It's one of those cons when choosing that career. Is it unprofessional to call in a day or so to see how she is doing ? I'm sure she would appreciate it. ((Hugs))

    You seem like a very caring doctor. The world needs more doctors like you. Hugs

    omg *hugs*

    I was told that at 39 weeks. I can't imagine how the Doc felt telling me but I could see the tears in her eyes (and I already knew I was watching the ultrasound). *hugs again* I can't imagine how you could possibly be feeling.
