I'm raising 3 healthy boys after being Dr. Kaplan's patient in 2001-2002. I had had two miscarriages (10 weeks and 12 weeks) as a healthy 29 year old and was diagnosed with a possible anticoagulant disorder. I saw Dr. Kaplan on my first visit and felt like I was heard even if my situation was different compared to others going through IVF. My challenge was staying pregnant. Dr. Kaplan immediately ordered specific bloodwork which no one had considered in the past and had me take heparin injections for the first 20 weeks of my next pregnancy. The pregnancy under her treatment resulted in a healthy boy. I had two more healthy boys, thanks to a heparin regimen during those pregnancies as well.
I am turning 40 this year and had more detailed blood work done recently; I was confirmed to have Factor V Leiden. I am just so grateful that I came to Dr. Kaplan when I did and that she took time to help me even after just 2 early miscarriages. I feel like I most likely would have suffered more miscarriages had I not sought her opinion. I don't wish the emotional tragedy of a miscarriage on anyone.
