"The consultant acknowledges the loss I have suffered"

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I have recently been to see Mr Devaraj, a gynae consultant at Macclesfield Hospital, as I have suffered 3 miscarriages.

He was very empathic. I didn't feel rushed in the appointment. He referred to the miscarriages as babies instead of 'products of conception' which is what most doctors say.

I have felt other doctors are very clinical about a very distressing experience which just makes things worse but I feel Mr Devaraj acknowledges the loss that I have suffered. This makes a huge difference to make better an awful situation.

I'm also very impressed that he uses information supplied by the Miscarriage Association as they are a very supportive charity and I'm glad he makes others aware of them.
