What should you do if you have had pprom and/or suspect IC?
2. Join Abbyloopers on the Abbyloopers Interactive Board site! There are loads of educational papers, doctor Q&As, sonogram teaching pictures, diagrams, etc. This is a live board where you can interact with other women advocating for and exploring TAC.
3. Join the cited FB groups
5. Email Dr. Haney (firstname.lastname@example.org), Dr. Sumners (email@example.com), and/or Dr. Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org) a brief pregnancy and delivery history and ask them what they think caused your loss or difficulty. They are accustomed to receiving emails from all over the world! Do not allow location or insurance funding to stop you from educating yourself and contacting these doctors!
6. Educate yourself utilizing all the documents on Abbyloopers
7. Meet with several doctors and ask other pprom ladies and TVC ladies an TAC ladies lots and lots of questions
As for me, I defied my Texas doctors and flew to Chicago for Dr. Haney to place my TAC. There are many, many, many success stories of TAC Sisters getting their rainbow babies. Actually, more than 95% of them do! (And, Dr. Haney’s success rate is even higher than that!)
As of October 2012, I am 20 weeks pregnant with twin girls. My cervix is long and closed and my TAC is holding strong. I’ve had no issues and not modified any behavior at all.
*Update: My beautiful TAC miracle daughters were born healthy and amazing at 34 weeks! No issues at all during entire pregnancy and my TAC held strong. I only delivered at 34 weeks due to non-tocolyzed pre-term labor from a grocery-stealing twin!
