"Very positive experience due to the lovely..."

About: BPAS Birmingham South Clinic

Today I had a vacuum aspiration abortion via local anaesthetic at 6 weeks 2 days. I can't praise all of the staff I encountered highly enough who I found to be very caring and friendly. During the surgery

I was very well looked after and it really helped that the nursing staff helped take my mind off the situation by chatting throughout. I experienced a sharpe cramping pain during the procedure but it was over so quickly it really wasn't anything like as bad as I had expected. I was able to get up straight after and walk to the rest area and given a cup of tea and biscuits. I felt ready to drive myself home after about 40 mins or so.
