Real women- real experiences- Why do I want a second pregnancy
Dr Himani Gupta
Consulting Gynecologist in Kharghar, Navi Mumbai
A 34 year old women, resident of CBD Belapur, sought consultation for early pregnancy.
She has had one living girl child of 9 years of age by Cesarean delivery for Breech presentation.
She is a working woman in Tourism sector.
Upon Ultrasound , this pregnancy was found to be of 8.5 weeks of duration/gestation age.
Her dilemma was whether she should keep this pregnancy.
She wanted a second child to keep company to her first one.
The question is does that really happen?
Are siblings really being a companion to each other in today’s time.
Her working profile more or less did not permit time for pregnancy care.
Leaving job in today’s job and financial scenario is not an option.
What she will decide finally , only time will tell.
