"Postnatal care at home after my daughter's baby died."

About: Leeds General Infirmary / Maternity care Leeds PCT

(as a relative),

Whilst in hospital, my daughter received kind and considerate care after she gave birth at 32weeks and her son died.

As soon as she left hospital she had only one midwife visit, which the hospital set up, after that even though she had an infection and low iron, we had to fight to get another visit and we're still fighting for proper care.

There was no counselling set up or no proper care, it was if just because their baby is not alive then postnatal care is not needed.
