Does anyone know what happens if someone actually puts a complaint in about a doctor? I know it sounds stupid, but I feel as if I should. My first night in the hospital while at 24 weeks, having severe contractions every 4-6 minutes, the doctor told me my baby would have 20% chance of surviving if I were to go into full labor. I understand it's her job to warn me, but then she told me " don't get your hopes up on meeting your son, he probably won't make it" I feel as if she should NOT.. CONT

Be working in that field and say something like that, then proceeds to tell me it Isnt a big deal since I'm only 18, I have plenty of time to reproduce. I can't get her words out of my head /:

I would definitely report her. She was insensitive with her wording about the chances of your son surviving but the comment about disregarding this baby just because you're young and may have more is borderline cruel.

I would complain I don't know what happens but I would write it everywhere! Heathgrades yelp everywhere so no one else has to go through that. I'm so sorry you had to. Good luck!! Stay positive ! I think it's really important for you to stay positive for you and your baby.

Talk to the HR reps at the hospital! That is so inappropriate. I can't believe the nerve on the dr.

Sounds like my sisters ultrasound tech, she told my sister that her baby had trisomy 13 and had a 1% chance of survival but would most likely die in her stomach.. Baby turned out to be 100% healthy

Unfortunately, this type of thing is really common, especially for young moms. I would complain everywhere I possibly could.
