This is the story of my first baby after reverse tubal ligation. For the initial twelve years of my professional career, I practiced both high and low risk obstetrics and gynecology with a local university based group. This time was spent teaching medical students and residents, providing obstetrical care for high-risk populations, and performing minimal invasive surgery on high risk surgical patients.
Gradually I become discontent with the delivery of modern medicine and I then began my work of providing low cost, affordable out-patient tubal reversal.
I have now dedicated myself to learning the surgical techniques and philosophical approach to for patients who want their tubes untied taught to me by Dr. Berger of Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center. Since 2008 I have exclusively provided corrective tubal surgery alongside Dr. Berger at the reversal center.
Successful Pregnancies After Tubes Untied
Since my start as a tubal reversal specialist, I have had many happy patients and reversal pregnancies. My first successful reversal came during my first week of working in the Tubal Reversal Center. This successful tubal reversal and tubal reversal baby will always be very dear to me. Previously we reported on my first four pregnancies after tubes reversed.
Following is a testimonial submitted by Melanie. Melanie traveled to Chapel Hill, NC from Alaska to have her tubes untied. She had a reversal of a Falope tubal ring sterilization procedure and she was pregnant within three months.
Tubes Tied And Tubal Regret: First Tubal Reversal Baby
My name is Melanie and my family was blessed again on March 25, 2009 at 10: 35 am when my son Orin David Shalom was born making him the first TR baby for Dr. Monteith.
Approximately 9 years ago after my first son was born, I decided that one child was enough and I had my tube tied after my C-section. I never really regretted having them tied until I met my current husband of 2 years.
He had never had a chance to have a child of his own. In March of 2008, we started searching for someone to reverse the decision I made nine years ago. After researching several clinics we decided to go with Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center. Before I knew it I was at Chapel Hill and sitting before Dr. Monteith talking about the procedure to have my tubes reversed. The next day the reverse tubal ligation surgery went very well and the next day I was heading back to Alaska.
Pregnancy After Tubes Reversed
On August 18th I was able to tell my husband that he was going to be a father on our 1st year anniversary….our new life thus began.
Throughout the pregnancy there were many ups and downs. I just kept telling myself the outcome is worth every bit of the morning sickness and the hurdles that were in our way. After 36 weeks of jumping these hurdles my son was born. Because he was premature he spent the next week in the NICU showing all the nurses what a great fighter he is. On April 1st he was able to come home with us………and now the journey begins!
