I cannot rate the EPU at Fairfield highly enough.
After suffering a very complicated and lengthy Missed Miscarriage in March (which was dealt with at NMGH), I was extremely anxious and stressed after becoming pregnant again recently (although also delighted).
I was referred here after some cramping and could not have been better cared for.
I was a bit worried the staff may think I was being over-anxious, but the nurse (midwife?) I saw was so kind, compassionate and understanding.
We talked about my miscarriage, which she probably sees on a fairly regular basis, but they showed understanding of how I felt as an individual.
I was thoroughly checked over and scanned over a 2 week period (the radiographers were also amazing) and given the all clear.
I felt so reassured coming out and was so grateful at how kind everyone had been to me.
I can't express how much this has helped me psychologically in the early stages of my new pregnancy and I'm really hopeful for a positive outcome this time.
