Shes a doctor, obviously she would have taken the necessary precautions, shots and medication to ensure she doesnt bring anything back with her, and with the ebola thing, there are prevention s for that anyway. Dont dump her as a gp just because she went to another country

Ebola has an incubation period of  21 days so she would be showing symptoms and be very ill by now.
However, never stay with a dr you are not comfortable with or have concerns about, it can stress you during your pregnancy
