    Could you please give me some more information? What is "tiffa scanning"? And could you tell me more about what your doctor said about your uterus being "a little bit down"? Also, did your doctor tell you that was a problem, and if so, what the problem was? I'll do my best, but I don't know if I can be of help as I am neither a doctor nor a midwife.

    Thank you for explaining what "tiffa" scanning is. 

    Unfortunately, I was afraid that your questions would fall outside of my field of expertise, and this has turned out to be the case. They are, however, questions and concerns your midwife or doctor should be answering. Here's what I suggest:

    • Make a conference appointment with your care provider so that whoever schedules appointments allows enough time for you to talk with the doctor or midwife.
    • Write down your questions before the appointment and bring the list with you so that you don't forget any of them.
    • Go with your partner, a relative, or friend. It will help you feel less anxious, and two people listening and asking questions are better than one.
    • Ask your questions and repeat back in your own words what you think your care provider said: "So you're saying that . . ." This will allow your care provider to correct any misunderstanding.
    • Write down what your care provider tells you. It is easy to forget important points when you are feeling stressed.
    • Ask your care provider what you should do if you have any further questions. When you think over what you have been told later, new questions may come up.

    If your care provider isn't willing to listen to you, discuss your concerns with you, make sure you understand what she or he is saying, and work with you on coming to agreement on what to do, then I strongly recommend that if at all possible, you find a midwife or doctor who will.
