Thank-you for your work & diligence in the baby loss community Dr. Toppin. I hope your research can be confirmed sooner by Meta-analysis, so that proper testing will become more common for mothers that suffer from recurrent loss. Prevention can be proven when science is willing to accept anecdotal evidence, like you do in your practice. Thousands of Moms share similar stories in online support groups & the “one in four” can be reduced with individual planning & care. Thanks again for making a difference in the world & the lives of the babies. ♡

Thank you for this excellent podcast! I wish there were more like-minded doctors who seek to connect the dots and treat the whole patient. Is it possible to contact Dr. Toppin with questions as a follow-up?
