Not happy!

My appointment on wednesday has left me thinking and my anger is festering! I decided to do my own research on the condition I had after Millie's birth that has caused so many complications (Arteriovenous Malformation). The first medical journal article I found said this "Pregnancy following embolisation for uterine vascular malformation is rare. Increased fetal wastage and stillbirth following treatment is common (Fleming et al 1989) So far, only four other successful pregnancies following embolisation have been reported in the literature (Poppe & Van Assche 1989). to the best of our knowledge, only one of these four women was delivered normally, with the rest being delivered by caesarean section."
Oh. My. God.

Where is Erin Brokovich when you need her!

Are you able to discuss it with your obstetrician or someone?
