I sat in a&e for 6 hours in a pool of blood following a miscarriage, i rang 111 who sent me to a&e due to the amount of blood loss. i had passed a large clot which i was told to keep. After being kept waiting for 2 hours initially, i was questioned as to if i was ever pregnant, and left for a further 2 hours still bleeding. The clot i had kept wrapped in a tissue, not knowing if i was holding my baby in my hands was thrown away into a bin in front of me without even being looked at. After a long wait i am finally seen by a doctor, who was kind enough to inform me i had blood on my trousers, and further accuse me of maybe imagining the pregnancy. After blood tests she confirms that i was pregnant and having a miscarriage. i left, still bleeding heavily, knowing no more than when i arrived, just sad and emotionally tired after my experience. 5 weeks later while on holiday i end up in theatre, recieving a d&c, something the uk should have offered me. This experience further causing pain and anguish. Miscarriage is a sad and hard time, and something that should have been dealt with, with more care and respect.
