I am the Mom of a 2 month old through open adoption. We recently received the bmom's medical records (which she consented to the release of). The records show a lot of stuff that wasnt previously disclosed. I am reading them as a layperson but would like to have a doctor look at them and render an opinion so I know if there is anything I need to do for the baby's health moving forward, look out for, etc.. My gyno and my pediatrian will not render an opinion on her records saying that if they read them and tell us that the condition is not something to worry about and then baby gets sick, can be sued. Has anyone dealt with this and how did you get around it.

I don't understand that. Only b/c I had the actual records of a birth parent and not a single doctor had a problem with giving me in put on what was best medically for my child. They did not diagnose my child. They simply gave suggestions about what medically we should look into. As far as what genetic testing should be done and what signs/symptoms we needed to be on the lookout for. I would never stay with a doctor who said they could not make suggestions about what I signs/symptoms I needed to be on alert for. Then again, I would not have left it to a general practitioner. I would have seen a genetic specialists. Most pediatricians cannot tell you b/c they don't know and are not qualified to go into all that. A geneticist would be your best option.
