"Miscarriage at 9 weeks"

About: New Cross Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

Had a private scan at 9 weeks pregnant as I felt that something was wrong. The private scan confirmed my fears and I was told I needed to go to my local hospital to confirm that our baby had died so that I could have some medical management or discuss further options.

The following day I went to New Cross hospital for a scan which confirmed our baby had died and I was given the options of how to deal with it. The next day I was back in hospital for the ERPC.

The hospital care and the staff were good but I think my husband should be allowed to attend the follow up appointments
