"Missed miscarriage"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

I had a mmc in jan this year , I had to go over my options as which way to baby being removed ,general anaesthetic ,tablets or natural ,as I'm rhesus negative I need anti d injection in case mine and babies blood mixed and I created antibodies which may cause my body to reject further pregnancies . The doctor I saw was very blunt in giving my options and refused my anti d which should be giving without me to having to ask! When I couldn't decide which medical treatment to have for miscarriage within 5 mins and that's no exaggaration they went on to tell me they have other patients apart from me to see! At that point I was so upset and decide on having the tablets which the sister on the ward gave me and they also had to fight for my anti d which I had , they were amazing! That one doctor was the worst I have ever met , and nearly a year later what already a terrible time that I went through I'm still thinking about that disgusting person and them doing that to other vulnerable women!
