- C-Section delivery
Elena Debray found out she was pregnant the day before the accident that left her in a coma. For the next eight months, she was on life support as the fetus gestated. Her boyfriend, Shawn, wanted Addison to allow her body to labor and deliver vaginally, but she recommended against it because the baby was breech. Addison put her on terbutaline to stop the contractions temporarily while Charlotte had St. Ambrose's legal team investigate. They found out that Shawn and Elena were never married, meaning that her parents still had legal authority to make medical decisions for her in her stead. They instructed Addison to perform the c-section. However, before she could do so, Shawn petitioned the court as guardian of the fetus and stopped the process. Ultimately, a judge stepped in and convinced Shawn to withdraw his protest rather than being ruled against. Addison performed the c-section and successfully delivered their daughter. Unfortunately, Addison was unable to save Elena and she died during the surgery.
- Unwanted pregnancy
Renee came into the practice after being referred to Meg for an abortion. However, Dell talked her out of it and she left the practice without her abortion. After speaking with Dell again, Renee came back to the practice to have the abortion.
