I phoned maternity triage to get advice because my wife is 33 weeks pregnant and felt her heart was racing. Due to previous cardic history this made her think something wasnt right. The lovely lady asked if my wife would phone herself as there was questions she needed to ask her. When my wife phoned back the shift had changed over and nothing was passed on about my phone call. She got a patronising nurse who made her feel like they really didn't care. She was told to take her smart watch off that was telling her what her heart rate was, get a good night sleep and just relax. There was nothing to worry about even though her heart rate hadn't been below 100 in 3 days and on 1 day it had gone as high as 240 accompanied by increased fetal movement.
