"Concerned about lack of antenatal care"

About: Leeds General Infirmary / Maternity care

(as the patient),

My son was stillborn in 2010, and in 2011 I had an ectopic pregnancy. After these experiences I was sure I would get special care.

I have been referred to the LGI for consultant care when I was 8 weeks pregnant. I've had no blood work done and no scan. When is my appt for? I will be nearly 15 weeks which is appalling.

When I called up to complain I was laughed at. Told it didn't matter about my previous experience as this pregnancy was treated as a new pregnancy. What does that mean? That I won't get extra monitoring and care?

I have had to pay private for a scan which went well but still had no blood taken. How can I trust them with my health and the baby's? Appalling.
