"Fetal medicine"

About: The Royal London Hospital

The obsetrics department is awful. When i went for my 5 month scan the consultant said my baby is so small my baby might die. If i want to have an abortion they would support me. The doctor said there was nothing i could do when i suggested eating more, taking aspirin and the fact that i only weigh 43kg made no difference. Heartless doctors there's 2 of them that are like that in the department. Its disgusting!!!!

My baby is doing well and growing there's nothing wrong with him.. I've changed hospitals since.
