"HIgh Risk Pregnancy"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital / Maternity care

In 2012 i had a ruptured ectopic pregnancy where i had emergency surgery the care i received saved my life. Due to the location of the ectopic i lost my left tube and the corner of my womb.. i was told if i was to have any more children i would be deemed high risk.

9 years after the birth of my son thinking my baby days were long gone i fell pregnant.

After hearing wonderful things from other mothers about the QE Hospital i chose to have my baby there plus it was handy for my many appointments/scans i was going to be having throughout my pregnancy as i work at Low Fell.

After a series of appointments and lack of communication from StH about my previous history it was decided i would have a ECS at 39wks.

At my 36 wk growth scan it was decided that baby would be better out than in as she her growth had droped, this had been explained to me in previous appoitments due to the surgery i had on my upper womb. So at 37 wks i had my baby at the QE in an extreemly relaxed C-Sec the staff were amazing throughout and i was home the next day with my beautiful new baby. I would most definatley return to the QE fir any future care i may require for either myself or my family.
