I have not seen the high risk doctor postpartum yet. I just got new insurance and have been waiting on that to make my appointment. Anyway, I called my OB/GYN and they called the high risk to set up the appointment. The high risk called me and after we made the appointment she said, due to flu season children are not allowed in the office. I know that you don't have any, but I have to tell you that anyway. Wow. My heart just crumbled. You would think of all people that they would be a little bit more sensitive. *sigh* It makes me wonder about even going to this doctor now because of that.

Amazing, the insensitivity of others, especially in this scenario. So sorry you had to deal with that. I would definitely let someone in the office know. It could help save someone else from the pain you experienced hearing those words.

I think it was the scheduler. She called me to set the appointment up because my doctor had to make a referral to them. I am a little skeptical of them anyway because my doctor said she heard that they don't have great bedside manners. NOT what I need in my situation, but he is the only doctor who takes my insurance in my area! If I have another bad experience when I go to him, I'll see if I can get referred to someone outside my area. I will drive to go to a good doctor!

I definitely do not need someone who will stress me out my next pregnancy!

How awful. I guess I can understand her telling you but she could have left the part out about knowing you don't have any. People are so insensitive.


I had a similar issue when I went to the high-risk OB to discuss our game plan for a future pregnancy. The receptionist was so rude and told me that the doctors there only saw pregnant women so I was obviously in the wrong place. After I explained what happened and why I was there she was still really rude.


I've said it before but I'll say it again...people working in medical environments (doctors, nurses, receptionists) should HAVE to take sensitivity training. A rude encounter can make an already delicate and painful situation a hundred times worse.


I do have to say that at my appointment the receptionist was evil but the doctor was amazing. I hope if you decide to go your doctor will be wonderful.

And I had an episode like that today at work! My co-worker and I were helping this woman whose son is away at college and overdrew his account by $400 and she had to fix it (yes, I work in a bank) and she was sooooooo angry (rightfully so) but she told my co-worker and I "Just don't have kids, there is no reason to want to have kids" And my co-worker and I went silent because I lost Edward and my co-worker had a miscarriage this Summer.
