hi,thanks for query.Please understand the bottom line,you need to trust your treating doctors.No doctor will ever try to hurt his patients.This is not uncommon and can happen to any patient.There is no need to worry she will be fine with treatment.Shifting becomes mandatory as gynecologist are not the one who treats renal failure and continuous monitoring is required.Baby developing jaundice is again normal and this will resolve with time.Baby will also be fine.
wishing her good health.
