I had a miscarriage last year and had to go in for a DNC, I was told my husband could go in with me due to the circumstances. When I went in that day I was told my husband had to go home when I explained I was told he could stay the nurse just went "right fine". I was shown to a room and after a while another nurse came in to do blood pressure etc. She was very abrupt and after 5 minutes she left after another nurse came to the door and asked if she was going to lunch, she couldn't wait to get away. Another nurse came in to ask me questions and the way she spoke to me and looked at me you would have thought I had done something wrong, to that point I said to my husband 'is it just me or is everyone really moody in here'?. It made me very upset and from the moment I went in I just wanted to come home. Someone then came and got me for theatre and thankfully, he was very nice and so were the rest of them. The difference was totally night and day. They put me at ease straight away. I feel if all the staff had been like that it would have made this awful experience a little easier.
