"no seperate miscarriage part"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital / Maternity care

Im disgusted at this hospital, i sufferd a miscarriage and they sent me to the labour ward to get a scan etc...the room i sat in was with other pregnant people who were happily coming out with scan pics of thier babies and talking...whereas i was going home with nothing to show apart from a broken heart...its disrespectful that i had to sit there amongst that when there should be a private seperate loss part for this kind of thing...and not just me other people who have lossed too, the staff where brilliant i just think its awful to have something like that on a labour ward where theres babies, pregnant people etc and ur grieving...awful, it needs sorting out...
