Sadly, we had to attend the early pregnancy unit at Sant Mary's last year and found we were having a miscarriage. It was an incredibly traumatic time for my husband and me, obviously, but I felt very well cared for by the staff there. And they weren't just concerned for my physical health, they also spotted how down I was when I went back for a subsequent appointment, and signed me off work for a few days. In hindsight, I really needed that time. I won't forget their kindness.
We're now pregnant again, and thankfully things are progressing much more successfully this time! We had a tiny bleed early on and went to the EPU again and were given an early scan which was a blessing - really helpful to see that everything was ok. My maternity care is now through the hospital as well and I've been impressed so far with the midwives I've met at appointments there (and with the same staff at other community centres). Everyone is really professional and friendly. Hopefully I'll be back on here after baby is born with another good review for the birthing centre!
