Story No. 396: Dr. Lauren from Washington

Here for her first prenatal visit, my patient and her partner were palpably excited. They had planned for this pregnancy and were excited to have their first ultrasound.

Unfortunately, the ultrasound revealed a pregnancy that was non-viable; it would never progress into a healthy pregnancy. She wanted to resolve this pregnancy as soon as possible to try again for a healthy pregnancy.

Because our clinic is equipped to do full-spectrum Ob/Gyn care, including abortion and miscarriage management, we were able to do her procedure that day and start her on the road to physical and emotional recovery.
