BR Dr Drake

We found out today that I have Vasa Previa and will have to have the baby early via csection.  We are meeting with Dr Drake next week just to confirm that is what I have and to get everything scheduled. So I was just curious if anyone else has met with her and what they thought about her.

Re: BR Dr Drake

  • LOVE her!!!!! We saw her monthly and she's awesome. She's got a crazy personality (told me..."Girl-don't gain too much weight, we want your husband to still love ya!" When we were talking about increasing my calorie intake-lol) but really helped us to feel more comfortable with everything and answered all our questions. You will love her :-) I hope everything goes well for you guys-keep us updated after your appointment!

  • We also see her monthly, and will until the end.  We also really like her!  I'm impressed with her as a dr and she is a very caring individual.  I've always felt like she's gone out of her way to listen to our questions and concerns.  She's the type of person that stopped to ask how I was doing with things now and asked that we let her know what we find out after he's born (and said she feels like she's bonded with us :).  All that said, I hope you don't have to form quite the same ongoing bond with a perinatologist and things go smoothly for you!
  • I also saw her throughout my twin pregnancy. She was really great. Even though she was overloaded with patients at the time she always made me feel like I was her only patient. Very nice and a straight shooter. I think you will like her a lot.
  • Thanks girls, you have made me feel better about our appt next week.  This will be the second Dr I have ever seen in my adult life.

  • I can't help with the doctor question, but I had to google this because I've never heard of it.  It sounds like a very good thing that they caught it so early.  How did they end up detecting it?  Good luck with your appointment and keep us update on your csection date!
