"Gyni /early pregnancy emergency room"

About: Liverpool Womens Hospital

I suffered a miscarriage on New Years days after calling early in the morning to inform them of bleeding I was not a emergency so was not to go down after a painful 24 hours and very heavy loss my husband demanded we be seen only to arrive and be told to come back in a further few days I arrived for a scan on the Wednesday with a male sonogripha he was very nice but giving the circumstances and was heavy virginal bleeding and a internal scan needing to be done I think they could of provided me with a women the experience was extremely emotional and embarrassing then to be sent to the emergency room for my results to have a doctor who smirked in both my self and my husbands face when they read out my results and as we asked questions I asked for a copy of the scan report as the doctor gave me a split second to read through a lot of information! The doctor was unsure if they were allowed then went off to find out and sent a brievment midwife to me who was lovely gave me advice on what we could do with my babies remains after the doctor told me to dispose of the remains in the bin ! I asked to see the doctor about the scan report copy before we left for the doctor to snap at me telling me know matter how much I read over it the result won't change ... I didn't want the report to change I wanted the report to know what was going on in my body as my miscarriage was incomplete! I have no evidence of my miscarriage or knowledge of what is happening or suppose to be happening to show my gp in next few days when I may need their help and advice this doctor didn't bother to rebook me in to make sure my miscarriage was complete in a few days /weeks time I am extremely upset and dissatisfied with the care and treatment I received at this extremely emotional time
