NEXPLANON®

Dr. Moore did a great job getting my Nexplanon out (I didn't even really have a bruise!). Also, I updated her on a few things in my future and I really appreciated her response. Specifically, I told her about my upcoming complete hysterectomy. Since this surgery means I will not have children, most people I've told about it have responded with pity or sadness or some mixture of negative feelings. Dr. Moore did not, and it made me feel really good. This decision has been hard, but I do believe it's the right call, but when people react with sadness it makes me second guess or feel bad. When Dr. Moore said she was happy for me that I was making this decision and that it would be a good thing, it really boosted my spirits and was the first time someone didn't respond as if me not having children was a tragedy. She really made me feel good, and it's one of the reasons I appreciate her. She is supportive and caring.

Gynecological Ultrasound / Sonogram

Both the ultrasound tech and Dr. Moore were awesome! My husband and kids came with me, and they both were very accommodating to them being there. They both also acted very happy and excited for our family about this new pregnancy! So happy to be receiving my prenatal care at Laurel!

Routine Pregnancy / Prenatal Appointment

Friendly and genuine. The only way she could have done better is to not be as pushy with the vaccines and bringing up infant deaths as an example for why I should get every vaccine available. She did eventually let it go.
