Lawyer up girl! Now and have no contact with that incompetent ob
Lawyer up…delete this post and do not go alone to any appt.
Sorry about your baby’s health concerns. Prayers all goes well!
I would get a second opinion on Your mental health
I wouldn’t be going to any appointments with this doctor anymore, not even with anyone. No. Lawyer!!
Wtf is wrong with her???
Lawyer and restraining order!!! At that point they can no longer contact you at all!
There is not a conspiracy against you! PPD is real. No one is trying to lock up. The fact is that you need help
Save all of this. Everything and sue her before she hurts you further. Lawyer up and advocate for yourself woman.
I feel like she wants to have you admitted to use it against you. You may not even have a true diagnosis of PPD. Anyone who’s child is up against what yours is facing is going to be filled with worry and that’s natural. Don’t let her try to manipulate the situation. You definitely need a lawyer asap.
Stop seeing that Dr NOW, AND LAWYER UP,
Attorney time and with you dealing with all of this, I’d be a little mental myself. Depression is understandable
Lawyer now report this Dr
Stick to your guns. NO MENTAL HOSPITAL. LAWYER ASAP.
You need to get into a separate mental health professional and have them assess you. Start documenting everything and get a lawyer to discuss this situation with you. It seem this doctor is trying to make you out to be crazy so she can discredit you when it comes time for any possible issues.
If you do have some struggles right now work on them. Get it documented. I have a feeling CPS will show up.
I would get a lawyer and start there
Get a lawyer asap! Sounds like your OB is trying to cover her ass incase she gets sued.
I agree with the others. Make sure you have all proof including the babies doctor. Sue, I wish I would’ve done more with our first. They said she was perfect, turns out her heart, liver, and stomach are on the opposite side…. Like how the heck do you miss that when you are looking at the ultrasound and just looked at the way she was facing.
Get a lawyer n fast. These incompetent idiots are trying to stop you from sueing them.
Sue her. I have bad PTSD. every pregnancy and iv had 5 natural births. My last had a mild heart defect and we caught it soon. That wasn’t the issue. Issue was he was born was congenital CMV. That kept him in SCBU for 2 weeks.he was in other words fine. Just the illness attacks the immune system. He had 2 failed lumberpunctures at 1 day old. Too many failed IV lines. Endless blood extracts…all to b able to take him home 2 weeks later with no acual help from the hospital. I supose the help was keeping him incubated in SCBU until he could fight any virus, sickness in the big world.
She is trying to shadow the negligence she has done by using your answers to the questions in the quiz against you…

Definitely talk to a lawyer. May be worth having them investigate any wrongdoing and malpractice. The backpedaling and gaslighting are definitely major red flags. And that doesn’t include them trying to have you locked away.
They will record all your conversations so (1) Block their numbers and (2) Get new ob/gyn dr.
Report the doctor now and find a new doctor immediately. Also contact child services and ask for advice because a dirty doctor like that might call on you.
report that doctor to the state medical board now
Get you a Lawyer NOW before she harmes some one else praying for your baby and you
Change doctor’s and lawyer up
Get you a lawyer asap and get a different doctor and report this one
Get a lawyer as soon as possible a doctor let my son die plz get what you an your baby deserve
Last ultrasound at 25 weeks? First red flag! Before doing anything contact your insurance company and get all your records from the time you found out you were pregnant up until your 6wk check up. So you have them to back your claims and to make sure they are committing insurance fraud￼. Then go from there with a lawyer.
Get a lawyer asap keep track of everything she has said and done find a new dr
Call you insurance company first and file a grievance with them. That’s the number 1 thing doctors don’t like. Then get the lawyer.
Sue the shit out of that doctor
Get a second doctor for second opinion
OMG!!! I’m so sorry!!
Wow that’s NOT ok in any way, shape or form. I have severe PPD which is under control with the use of medication, if that is your fear go to your gp and get put on meds for it. If I was in your situation I’d get the meds and talk to a lawyer and sue for negligence especially seeing as you felt something was wrong and they failed to listen to your concerns, and then showed you an ultrasound of someone else’s baby to try make out they weren’t in the wrong. You got lucky, but the next person might not.
This is so crazy!! Sue them!!! Get all your money and all the crazy u had to deal with this doctor!!! And get a new doctor for your mental state!!! Tell the old doctor u got a second opinion and u don’t need her help anymore!! Get u and ur child the help u truly need
You’ll never get an atty to take this case. Knowing ahead of time would have changed nothing so your only damages are possibly pain and suffering unfortunately.
You should have copies of your ultrasounds, and all your records should be available to you online.
If you haven’t done so already, down load them onto your own device or a thumb drive now, before anything goes “missing”. Also, hopefully the physicians at Vanderbilt have already obtained all your old records, scans, and tests. If not, ask them to do so asap. They may have access to more or different information than you do.
They should also be able to tell you if there is indication of negligence or actionable errors on the part of your ob.
Depending on the information you get from them, you may or may not choose to consult a lawyer.
Now, as far as dealing with this particular ob goes; obviously you have lost faith in them so you must find another. Sadly, if you live in a smaller community, that may be difficult to do as you may be considered a “lawsuit risk”.
Perhaps a referal from Vanderbilt can help you there as well.
Good luck mama. I pray that you and your family be given abundant strength, and brighter days ahead.
Report the doctor and sue. Trust me if the hospital noticed your babies heart wasn’t formed right than that means the ob lied to you. Your last ultrasound should have been at 34 weeks. Regardless if you had a C-section or not
Talk to a lawyer about your options but keep in mind that most malpractices just pay for any issues if they don’t go to court and doctors don’t know that they even used their malpractice.
You should get all the information and records you can, take them to a malpractice attorney for a consultation. Look for one has had experience with birth injuries and they would be able to determine whether or not you have a case and whether the doctor is liable. Only an attorney can tell you if you have a case.
I know this won’t help now, but for the future…If you want a doctor to take you seriously, whenever you ask for something that you feel you need, and they tell you, “no” tell them to mark it in your charts that you asked and they denied you so you have it in writing and in your charts. Usually that gives them enough pause to at least think about why they’re dismissing you.
There’s nothing to sue for heart disease and defects can develop after 25 weeks it’s rare but does happen. My baby for example was fine at 25 weeks but developed a hole in The heart. All the details of what you shared sound more like a genetic defect than a heart defect and living in post row v Wade america there’s literally nothing other than deliver them/baby that could be done.
Get a lawyer. Now. They’re trying to attack your character now so you will have a harder case. Lawyer. Now.
Medical malpractice is hard to sue a doctor. I had a doctor Nick my colon sent me home after the colonoscopy, went to the hospital two days later. I had to be operated on and have a colostomy. I also had sepsis. My family was told I was not expected to live. I was in a coma for two weeks. I lost the case, and also had to pay the attorney for medical specialist that she hired. Be careful￼￼. The colostomy was not able to be reversed. Be careful
And this is why healthcare is so expensive. You want to sue the doctor because somehow your baby is not perfect?? It’s not like the doctor stopped the heart from growing on purpose
I’d get a lawyer and also bring someone with me when I go to my appointments. If you for some reason choose to keep seeing this doctor. Which I definitely wouldn’t!
I had a dr dismiss my concerns for my first baby who eventually was still born due to her negligence. She came in two days after I gave birth and told me it wouldn’t be long (until I delivered) I almost hurt her. She was so wrapped up in her life issues that she wasn’t even up to date on her patients. I was to sick at the time to realize I should have sued her , if for nothing else to keep another momma from loosing her child. I heard from multiple people years later that she was also their dr and that they had lost their babies too… Neglect is Neglect!!!
It’s obvious she knew something. However, it’s VERY hard to win a malpractice suit.
It sounds like the doctor may have missed it, but if you had known…would you have aborted the baby ? Or what would you have done differently ? If it is a genetic defect that is not really malpractice. The only thing your doctor did wrong was miss the condition. Nothing she did caused it. I am so very sorry you are going through this but yes the doctor sounds like she is trying to cover her ass, but nothing she did caused the defect(s). And depending on what state you live in, there was probably not much you could have done anyway. Good luck to you and your little one. I will be praying for you both.
Switch doctors immediately. Have them send for all records right away. Don’t tell them what is going on until after you have transferred all records and are settled in with them. Then request that they go over everything. Ask if this heart issue should have been seen prior to birth and then request a PPD evaluation for a second opinion. Go from there.
Get a diff doctor immediately
I mean, is there anything that could have done had they caught this past 25 weeks?
Can you get a different doctor? Your in the states? You pay out of pocket so you should get to choose. When they ask why
I believe the current doctor has triggered anxiety due to conflicting opinions and feel it inappropriate to continue as it may cause unneeded stress on the baby due to unnecessary phones calls and accusations.
So for the health of the baby and the mental health of myself as I no longer trust or wish to use this doctor your firing him and hiring a new one.
Then breath wait for the phone call and know that you did nothing wrong this doctor makes you feel uncomfortable and you don’t want him
In cananda we are sent to a maternity clinic with specialist and everyone sees everyone. I’m not sure how it works in the states but our hospital also has doulas
Hugs. Just stand strong and keep saying it’s the situation not your brain
Becaise girl it’s the situation
Sue the shit out of her.
You should absolutely sue her and I wouldn’t even go back to be honest. She fucked up and is trying to cover her own ass because she knows she fucked up. Good luck and I hope you and your little are ok
Very difficult to sue a Dr
Switch doctors and find a lawyer, asap.
That is absolutely what she is doing! I would go talk to a lawyer who is well versed in medical lawsuits asap.
I don’t know why your sueing anyone. This is a tragic situation but doesn’t read as any kind of neglect. Deep prayers and healing vibes for you and your wee one, but I really think this doctor is taking all necessary precautions
Why not sue? Those cardiologist bills will definitely add up
WOW that is a huge mess! I’m so sorry you are going through all this and have a over zealous doc on your butt too. Of course you would show PPD with all you are facing!!! In the end the Doc knowing before birth would not have made a big enough difference in the quality of your daughters life - more than likely. Get a new OB to see for your 6 week for sure.
Kind of sounds like paranoia from postpartum depression. Look into it, but don’t make any decisions that could effect you permanently within the first year postpartum. Even without a diagnosis of PPD, we are not ourselves fully after giving birth, but can’t see it live. Hind sight is always 20/20.
