"Early Pregnancy Unit (EPU)"

About: Fairfield General Hospital

I cannot rate the EPU at Fairfield highly enough.

After suffering a very complicated and lengthy Missed Miscarriage in March (which was dealt with at NMGH), I was extremely anxious and stressed after becoming pregnant again recently (although also delighted).

I was referred here after some cramping and could not have been better cared for.

I was a bit worried the staff may think I was being over-anxious, but the nurse (midwife?) I saw was so kind, compassionate and understanding.

We talked about my miscarriage, which she probably sees on a fairly regular basis, but they showed understanding of how I felt as an individual.

I was thoroughly checked over and scanned over a 2 week period (the radiographers were also amazing) and given the all clear.

I felt so reassured coming out and was so grateful at how kind everyone had been to me.

I can't express how much this has helped me psychologically in the early stages of my new pregnancy and I'm really hopeful for a positive outcome this time.
