781| Three Cesarean Births in Ecuador: Dealing with Uncertainty and CMV in Pregnancy – Nina Solah

Nina shares 3 c-section birth stories. Each different: One with restricted growth and blood type incompatibility scare, a second attempted VBAC with a CMV diagnosis, and a final smooth going pregnancy (well deserved after the first 2 adventures!). They all take place in Ecuador and involve adventures of trying to find tests and medicine that were temporarily unavailable in the country as well as having to travel to the US for consults. She talks about how her father’s passing was important in her decision to have children and how being a working mom motivates her to be the best mom she can.
