How To Get Pregnant After Repeated Miscarriages?

Dear Doctor,

I am Smitha Doddamani and 35 years old. I gave birth to two children in the year 2007 and 2009, both were boys, but both died after birth. I had gestational diabetes and blood pressure. Before I could think of second child, I went to Dr. Chitralekha in Columbiasia hospital, near Hebbal. She did so many tests and said that everything we perfectly alright and asked us to proceed for the second child. I conceived for the second time and I had smooth pregnancy, no gestational diabetes at this time, but still underwent tests often for it. Underwent scans for 5 times and everything showed normal till 7 month end. Again I went for my scan in the starting of the ninth month; there the scan showed that there was swelling in the babyĆ¢??s heart. Doctor immediately asked me to get admitted and opted for C-section and removed the baby out. The baby was alright in every way, but there was something called acidosis growing in the body of the baby and the baby was shifted to Yeshwanthpur, Columbiasia hospital and kept under observation in ICU under pediatrician care. Baby died after 16 hours of birth and doctors were not able to find the cause of the death. They took the blood of the baby to do the test, they felt that it could be genetic disorder and did 170 tests on the baby, but everything came normal. Doctor I am very disappointed and dejected. I want to know if there is a way for me out if I conceive this time. I want doctor to take my issue as a challenge and treat me rather than giving up.

Hello,
I have gone through your query and am very sorry for what happened and the trauma you had to go through. In my opinion, before planning another pregnancy, you have to get a couple counseling for genetic defects and if needed, karyotyping. Please contact a specialist in high risk pregnancy for proper evaluation and plan further management. You can use prenatal vitamins. If there was a postmortem on the baby, the result is needed for your further management. Hope this helps.
