And, yes, it is illegal for records to be destroyed if it is under (either) 7 or 10 years. I am not sure of the specific time frame, but the records are somewhere.

Your doctor's office does not have to keep records in their possession if you are no longer a patient, but there is usually a record depository (usually at the hospital) that holds all medical records for the specified period of time.

Hold on. You could have a huge legal issue on your hands (or the hospital) if they destroyed any records at all. If you are in the states, take action. Go to the L&D ward, and ask who you need to speak to in order to have access to your records. It does not matter if you are no longer her patient. It is illegal to destroy record for like 7 years or so.

If you simply describe what happened, and explain that you were not told the "official" term for what occurred, you should be just fine.

Or google "placenta previa". All I did was type into my search box "What is it called when the placenta is delivered before the baby" and got several hits on placenta previa.

I am not really sure what answers you are looking for. There really is no specific question posted. just tell the doctors at the evaluation what took place during birth. They will ask you very specific questions about his current behaviors, and things like when he learned to walk etc.
