"Upset by care for bleeding in pregnancy"

About: New Cross Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

Bleeding at 30 weeks pregnant. Transferred to Wolverhampton hospital from other city.

With my being here they do what with my bleeding? Completely nothing! Just give cocodamol.

On the night when I came here doctor made my scan to check placenta position. She told me its low. Next day on ultrasound what I been done downstairs its show not low. I'm so confused. Now its send me down to the ward.

I'm completely upset mad and angry. Think about going home. Lie on the bed and taking cocodamol, I can do at home. Horrible!

I hope never again back here. Possible? Still bleeding and getting worse pain. Told midwife. Again, nothing done.

Response from Charlotte Hall, Deputy Director of Nursing & Midwifery - Quality and Safety, The Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust

Dear Wisienka5

I was very sorry to read of your problems, this is not an experience I would wish for, least of all during my pregnancy.

I would suggest you make an appointment to discuss this with your midwife so that she can explain the scan results.

Best wishes with your pregnancy
