"We lost our baby!"

About: Royal Stoke University Hospital

Anything else?

we were advised to terminate our baby due to our first scan revealing the baby had Anencephaly. this was totally heart breaking for us. All the papers were signed and baby was taken away. 2 weeks later my wife suffered a massive haemorrhage due to a part of our baby still being inside the womb. My wife was rushed to hospital under blue light and we had to sign the papers again for the disposal of said parts. 12 weeks later my wife is still not right and is still suffering blood loss and after a course of antibiotics were now told we have to wait 2 weeks for a scan. what a complete farce this is, we're suffering here and yet we have to wait 2 weeks for a scan that can possibly let us get on with our lives!
