"Losing our baby"

About: Queen's Medical Centre / Gynaecology Queen's Medical Centre / Maternity care

(as the patient),

Sadly at our 20 week scan on Friday we were told our baby had sadly died at around 15 weeks. What followed next was nothing but compassion, sympathy, empathy and the highest care and respect we could imagine. It was as if the staff were feeling our pain and they helped guide us through this most difficult time.

From the sonographers, midwife, consultants and then the amazing nurses on East Block A23 namely Shontelle-all were amazing and really helped my husband and I through this difficult time.

I have so much respect for all they do! Thank you!
