"Early pregnancy scan"

About: Queen's Medical Centre

I have got to say I'm absolutely disgusted in the way I have been treated. 7 weeks ago I went to A&E where I learned I'd miscarried, They didn't send me for a scan in fact nobody even came to see me from gynaecology. I literally caught pregnant again within days of my miscarriage, I've been in contact with the midwife to see about an early scan after everything I've been through obviously I'm very scared an anxious to know I haven't got an etopic and to give me piece of mind, I've learned today that the early pregnancy unit will not take me, this has left me very upset and so stressed. Also with me being pregnant I've had to stop taking my antidepressants which I have been on for 7 years so I'm disgusted in the way I've been treated so now the staff have left me to wait for my 12 week scan not knowing if my baby is ok or not and it will be a huge surprise with the amount of extra stress they have now put me under that I don't develop complications again.
