Dr. Nicole Scott with the Coleman Center for Women at IU Health University Hospital talks about identifying and addressing complications during pregnancy.
Tashay Odle was 20 weeks pregnant when an irregular heartbeat was detected during a routine prenatal visit. She was sent directly to Riley Hospital for a fetal echocardiography. Similar to an ultrasound, the test is designed to determine cardiac distress.
“I wasn’t so nervous about the baby but I was nervous there was a second baby,” said Odle, 26. The reason she wasn’t nervous she said is because she trusted her physician, Dr. Nicole Scott.
The mother of one son, Tavion, delivered by another physician at University Hospital, Odle said starting with a new doctor during her second pregnancy was a little different at first. “But Dr. Scott answered all of my questions and made me feel totally comfortable,” said Odle. “I love that IU Health has online questions and answers. It’s so much easier than leaving a voice mail and waiting for a call back. Dr. Scott always asks me first thing, ‘how are things going. Do you have any concerns?’”
