I was referred to the department a few months prior to my appointment due to experiences pain and bleeding. Two weeks before my appointment I sadly had a miscarriage (7/40 weeks). When I booked in I had to wait in a waiting room with expectant mothers waiting for their scan. This first of fall made me feel awful. I was later called in for an ultrasound, I was asked when my last period was and proceeded to explain that I had a miscarriage two weeks ago. The female ultrasonographer reply was "well that changes things doesn't it" and let out a sigh. As if I was making her job so hard because I had lost my baby. I was disgusted and did not feel respected at all and left feeling extremely upset. Definitely didn't help me to cope with the miscarriage and it still effects me now,
