Thank you for sharing your story on Patient Opinion. These things are just so hard to bear, it must have been a such terrible time - I can quite understand that you have many questions. I wondered if you had thought about contacting the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) at Lancaster Royal. PALS staff are there to help patients, answer questions and deal with complaints so they may be able to give you some answers. You can contact them on Lancaster Royal PALS on 01539 795812 or email them at pals@rli.mbht.nhs.uk You may also find it useful to discuss things with your GP as this often helps. And if you are not aware of them already UK-SANDS is a self help organisation run by people who have been through the terrible experience of loosing a baby at or soon after birth. Do get back in touch if you think Patient Opinion can help further.
