    Thank you so much for posting the interview with Dr. Hasegawa. I would love to understand how pregnant patients can influence U.S. ObGyns to take preventative measures re: placental abruptions. My son Logan died of a preventable abruption on my due date and I was unaware that I could have had umbilical cord ultrasounds in the 3rd trimester. Please continue to raise awareness on this cause of stillbirth along with what we, as patients, can do to reduce the risk.
