My pregnancy was complicated by diabetes, IUGR, preeclampsia, and placenta accreta all at the same time. Dr. Rad helped me through every step of my high risk pregnancy! I am finally blessed with my healthy twin babies.
I was surprised with a triplet IVF pregnancy! 3 boys! Two of them were identical, monochorionic-diamniotic. I started my care with Dr. Rad at 10 weeks and he helped me deliver at 35 weeks without any complications at all! I saw him 2-3 times a week. Big blessing.
