I am really worried about my sister in law! She is 7 months along and fell at work this morning, landing on her elbow. To what I understand, she dislocated either her elbow or her shoulder and has a minor fracture. She asked the ambulance to take her to the hospital that her ob/gyn is affiliated with, but they ignored her request and took her to a hospital that everyone in my family avoids (it's only 1 mile difference for heavvens sake!). Now they are saying they want to put her under anesthesia to reset her dislocation, which I have never heard of. I thought if anything they might give her a local, not putting her completely out! This sounds very dangerous for the baby! Has anyone heard of this or had to have anesthesia while pregnant?
