I was treated under the RMC following my third miscarriage. I found the whole process fantastic. I am from out of the area and I believe the travel was well worth the care recieved. The staff were all compassionate and understanding and were always avaliable for advice and reassurance. Despite funding being tight I truly believe that I have recieved the best possible care and I am currently 14 weeks as a result. No question was silly or too small - they were all taken seriously as I believe that staff really understood the worry that RM can bring, copies of my notes and scans were all forwarded to my local GP and midwife.
The fact that reassurance scans were offered fortnightly allowed me to relax, as with missed miscarriage the worry for a pregnant mother is that you won't know at which point the baby has died. This in itself reassured me and allowed this pregnancy to be far less stressful than previous ones.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff who have helped me in my care from my previous miscarriage to this point in this pregnancy, you have all been empathetic, understanding and professional and I really believe the care you have offered has allowed my pregnancy to progress to the stage that it has. I am looking forward to sending you a picture of this one when they are born.
