"late miscarriage"

About: Good Hope Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

Last April I had the misfortune of suffering a late miscarriage which was detected at the time of a private gender scan at 18 weeks. I was sent to good hope hospital where the staff were amazing....especially the midwife who brought me in on the day of my induction. Her name was Sarah. She was truly a very special person and I felt so fortunate to have had such a genuine caring person around me during such a difficult time. You have an amazing staff member and she made what was a horrible experience into a much more positive one just by taking the time to talk to and empathise. I only regret not making my feelings and gratitude known sooner.
