I mentioned a few weeks ago that we were considering a trans-abdominal cerclage. Today, we had a phone consultation with Dr. Haney in Chicago, and it really was like a breath of fresh air. Compared to that awful postpartum appointment this same time last year, today's discussion was like getting fresh air after nearly suffocating.
All day at work, I was excited to speak with him, almost as if he was going to hand us a baby over the phone. In the minutes before I dialed, my stomach was in knots as if going for a job interview. Worse, actually.
Dr. Haney was very friendly, and explained everything clearly. Most importantly, he saw no reason for couples to have to jump through hoops and lose 3 or more babies before "believing" a woman has an incompetent cervix.
