“Well, your babies are dead.” – Ultrasound tech to a mother pregnant with twins who was having a routine ultrasound two days after a checkup said everything was normal. The mother said, “Are you serious???” and the tech replied, “Yes, I’m serious,” and left the room.
“Do you want single or double layer suturing? Double takes longer to heal, but I recommend it, just in case you want a VBAC later. I know you were told you’d never get pregnant naturally but you never know.”- OB during pre-op meeting for medically necessary cesarean section of twins conceived by IUI. The mother opted for double suturing and had a successful VBAC 2 years later.
Gyn: If that’s uncomfortable, you’ll never have sex, and no kids.
Mother: There’s a difference between sex, and having a layer of my cervix removed. I also already have a child.
Gyn: You adopted?
Mother: No. Gave birth the old fashioned way – vaginally, vacuum assistance, after 18 and a half hours in labour, four days before the due date…
Gyn: There’s no way. I see no proof of that. So, if you already have a family, why are you here? You have a healthy vagina, and you can conceive. You’re wasting my time, when I could be helping a woman who really wants to be pregnant.
Mother: Please remove things from my vagina now. I need to leave. You didn’t even take a moment to read the referral from my doctor, nor my basic history, did you? I was referred here because I just recently had a second trimester miscarriage of TWINS, don’t tell me I’m wasting your time, and assume that I do not wish to conceive.
Gyn: ….. Well, I am very busy you know…… Nice tattoo, by the way….
“Twins can’t switch the A and B position. Whoever did your last ultrasound got it wrong.” – Ultrasound tech when the mother pointed out that one twin had previously been labeled A but was now being called B. The same tech had performed all previous ultrasounds.
