"Sent home after nurse couldn't find heartbeat"

About: Wythenshawe Hospital

A nurse couldn't find out babies heart beat after I went to a&e bleeding and sent us home anyway, the nurse looked tired and really just couldn't be bothered we were told it was probably nothing to come back with more bleeding the next day and then we had to insist on someone to come in and so a scan and found out we had miscarried, this was more than a little upsetting. A nurse also laughed and said the baby was probably a boy because the nurse could saw his widgy.
