Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Welcome

Dr. Shahzad MD :

As a rule the doctors should only discuss problems of the patients ONLY with the patients.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

They are not supposed to disclose any information to anyone else.

JACUSTOMER-yofs6cq7- :

Just am scared if he finds out

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So the hospital should not mention anything to your partner.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You can even discuss this with the doctor who will be treating you when you are in the hospital or on the next appointment that information should not be disclosed to anyone, including your partner.

JACUSTOMER-yofs6cq7- :

Do you think i should talk to my midwife and ask her not to mention it infront if my partner when giving birth

Yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :
