Another day. Greet your MA! Our medical assistants are a big part of the village experience our patients receive. Jeri, Zejna, Michelle (Clinical supervisor) Monishia (L to R) They bring all patients back for their appointments, check vitals, draw blood among other things. Patients going through IVF will see them 5 times over the course of 2 weeks and a couple of weeks later when pregnant. The medical assistants are part of that treatment continuity. They have 3 pro tips to share btw for patients coming in the morning to have their blood drawn: 1. Drink Water/hydrate before you come in... It will make the blood draw easier🥤🥤🥤 2. We use butterfly needles (aka "the smallest needles to draw blood with") on everyone to minimize discomfort and to handle more easily those patients that are "difficult sticks." 🦋💉 3. People ask how much blood we collect during Treatment monitoring...We only collect a small amount... 3ml. #ttccommunity #stlouisgram #ttc #womensupportingwomen

As part of our #ittakesavillage run, want to introduce Dr Omurtag's team: (L to R Jessie Rieger - his admin assistant, @drkenanomurtagmd, and his nurse Kathy Shelton). An example of our village in action: Bleeding in early pregnancy causes a lot of anxiety and fear of miscarriage lingers. Here is how we handle it. Dr Omurtag likes to describe 4 types of bleeding in pregnancy : 1. Intermittent Brown spotting -very common, just old blood in cervix or uterus, not a sign of miscarriage 2. Intermittent Bright red spotting - similar to above, maybe from cervix, not a sign of miscarriage 3. Painless gush of blood with or without clot that turns into spotting - this is likely a subchorionic hemorrhage. Oftentimes patients think this is a miscarriage, but many times it's just an implantation site bleed exiting rather dramatically. Most of the time these pregnancies go on to result in livebirths. Obviously each situation is unique so talk to your doctor. 4. Painful, low back pain like a period with period like flow and passage of tissue and or clot - high risk for miscarriage. Call your doctor for advice In all the situations above your doctor will want to know your blood type. If you have a negative blood type they will likely recommend a one time injection called rhogam. How does Dr Omurtag's pod triage bleeding? We advise our patients to call Jessie with any bleeding and/or pain in early pregnancy and then Kathy will follow up immediately. Depending on the above we will arrange an ultrasound immediately and eval with Dr Omurtag or one of his partners to give patients information about the pregnancy. Sometimes patients are just anxious and an ultrasound can be very informative. Bleeding in early pregnancy is common, if you are not sure what is going just call your doctor's office. #ttccommunity #ttc #ttcsisters #miscarriageawareness
