"Experience of the EPAU after a late miscarriage"

About: Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust

(as the patient),

Attended the Early Pregnancy Assessment Units (EPAU) after bleeding at home 14 weeks pregnant, had a scan found no heart beat.

Jane staff nurse was amazing and all theatre staff during the ERPC in hospital. With ward staff did not feel I had the opportunity to ask questions about why this had happened and did not feel opportunity to speak to anyone after I was discharged.
