About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

I was 9 weeks pregnant and start bleeding on the sunday so i went straight to a&e done my obs then told me to wait a few days to see what happens ! I think this is discusting making me wait to see if my baby had died or not then as i left the doctor said 'next time if u dont want kids use contraception' i thought that was extremely rude because i already have a 10month old baby and wanted a small age gap i work hard so does my partner so what does it have to do with him after being in tears about maybe loosing my baby ! So straightt after i went to st richards who told me my heart rate was too high i was dehydrated had uv drip and they scanned me to tell me i lost my baby and i have to have a d&c and have been taken my bloods everyday since keeping a eye on me recommend them 100 percent not qa !
