"miscarriage diagnoses and after care "

About: University Hospital (Coventry) / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I was scanned at Coventrys University hospital early pregnancy assessment unit after experiencing a lot of pain and bleeding. I had been through so much prior to going to University Hospital Coventry.

I cannot fault University Hospital who took very good care of myself and my partner. We had a lovely, down to earth and caring sonographer who gave us the news that we kind of suspected, that we were suffering from a delayed miscarriage. I think her name was Mandi? Either way we can not thank you enough.

I was given pain relief straight away and myself and my partner were given relevant information and talked about our options.

I was discharged with information, contact information and pain relief. I was re-admitted the same evening where I subsequently lost my baby overnight. I was given pain relief, made comfortable, given privacy and had regular checks from ward staff. I cannot thank the staff enough for the care they gave me, I was taken seriously, I was given choices and importantly I was not discharged until I was ready.

I also want to thank the nurse who let me take my baby's remains home, she gave me a little white box and a teddy bear along with my baby. Thank you.
