Legal Question

Asked on: 11/01/12, 2:47 pm

I have a question. I have hypothyroid and when I was pregnant with my first daughter, who is 4 now, the doctor providing my prenatal care informed me and my fiancÚ that my low thyroid would not affect the baby because they make there own. I have extremely low thyroid and at that point I hadent been tested in awhile. We thought nothing of hurting our daughter. When I was pregnant with my son who is one, we saw a different doc. He informed us that it is terribly bad for a women to have low thyroid he tested me constantly, proscribed medication, and sent me to a specialist. We have now found out our daughter has speech and vocabulary issues along with attention issues. Was the doc who gave me prenatal care for her in the wrong and neglegant?
