Currently grieving for my baby boy who was born stillborn, 8weeks ago. I had the consultants secretary call today to give us an appointment to discuss the post mortem results. I happened to call last week to chase them up to be told they were lying on the Dr's desk so they have been there atleast a week and now been given an appointment for 2weeks time. Not only do we have to wait but they are making us go to antenatal clinic to get the results. The secretary did say you might see pregnant women...you think? Sorry to vent like this but i honestly don't know if my heart can take going to antenatal clinic but i need these results for the next step in my grieving process. I've called my GP to see if its possible to get the results there instead. Sorry again for ranting. xx
I remember your story (that's not the right word) and can fully understand why you need to rant.
Please ask someone who cares about you to phone the hospital back and get the location of your appointment changed. If the hospital have a PALS that would be a good place to start, if not then the over all director of the hospital. It is not acceptable for them to put you through this.
From my friends experince it is not unusual to have a wait for the results, perhaps they think they are doing the right thing to give you time, but you should be given the option
beanie I think you have every right to ask for the appointment with the consultant to be done elsewhere in the hospital. That secretary should had a modicum of sensitivity to see this. Push hard to make this difficult situation at least a little easier for you - even if it means someone else argues your case for you if you can't.
Beanie- our PM for our dd was also held in the ante-natal unit, although we were shown to a side room straight away which the consultant came to. I would do what miasmummy suggested. I hope they can dirt something out for you.
That's awful I remember the horrible wait for PM results, and them having already got them and you still waiting must be awful for you It really isn't acceptable and neither is going to the ante natal section. We did that too So sorry, please try PALS or someone higher up at the hospital
