Following on from the Mumsnet Miscarriage Care Campaign, Members of the Sevenoaks District Council Social Affairs Select Committee have visited Pembury and Darent Valley. They will be reporting back to the Social Affairs Select Committee on the evening of January 22.

They would like also to report back on the experiences of local people, so they've asked us to ask you about your experiences of maternity services in the area, for example, the Tunbridge Wells Hospital at Pembury Tunbridge Wells or the Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford. How do local hospitals do when it comes to miscarriage care?

They're interested in hearing about all experiences. (As ever, if you'd rather not share details of your experience with all and sundry on the internet, you're welcome to mail us on contactus@mumsnet.com and put 'FAO Campaigns Team' in the subject line.)

So do please add your experiences or comments here, or via email if you'd prefer. MN will be meeting the The Chair and Vice Chair of the Select Committee again before their meeting on 22nd January to feed back your responses.

Thanks,
MNHQ

Sorry re last post.
Just wondering if anyone in the Tunbridge Wells area would like to meet/message and talk about their experiences. I,ve had 3 miscarriages one being twins. I have a son who is 1 on Thursday.

I have also attended the SANDS group and the STEPS group, both were brilliant.

Ralph I think that's a great idea. I've had one mmc and now 15 weeks pregnant. Pm me if you'd like!

I've had 2 definite mc's; a mmc at 10 1/2 weeks and one at 6 1/2 weeks and a very early mc which I 'ignored'. I do actually wonder if ignoring that one caused the third as of course, I didn't have an anti d having not bothered.

Hello - just wanted to show you this story in the local press about the Council's action on this, in case you haven't already seen.
