I would just like to say thank you to the staff in emergency gynaecology and antenatal for their care over the past few weeks. I had previously had a bad experience at Wansbeck regarding a missed ectopic pregnancy that then ruptured ending in a week long stay in hospital and so didn't have a good feeling about going back there. When I got pregnant again I was referred for an early scan due to the previous ectopic, had blood tests taken and subsequent scans, and although we did see a baby with a heart beat on one scan, the outlook was never good and I finally lost the baby. Through all this the staff have been caring, sensitive and really looked after me. I'd like to single out a couple of ladies, one who I met down on antenatal who made me a hot sweet coffee after some news that left me a bit shaken, and especially an amazing lady who has kept me informed at every point, been totally honest with me without being blunt, and even called me back in one afternoon just because she was worried about me and didn't want to leave me the whole weekend (at this point it was suspected that I had another ectopic and I was understandably concerned). They all made this heartbreaking experience just a little more bearable and I can't thank them enough.
