I am early pregnant again after a full term loss last year at 42 years of age. I had a wonderful, midwife led, untested pregnancy before (my first) but feel that although they were not able to determine why my son Kai dies on his due date, I may want the extra reassurance of early testing. I live in a remote area, but previously travelled to Austin TX for all my prenatal care and moved there for the last month of my pregnancy. I am well studied on the risks and benefits of CVS and don't need any info on that, but I am looking for information on who the best available provider would be. I have read that you want to find the Dr. who does the most of these tests and has great statistics. Hoping some of you Austin mamas may know of where to look. Thanks!

Thanks so much for your replies- Dr. Sheppard is the Dr. I saw for an intensive ultrasound to diagnose excess fluid last time and I do remember her being very kind and knowledgable. I will get in touch with her.
