In my local paper and news today a womwn went to her local a&e as she was preg and bleeding, she waited 4 hours for a gynocoligist and when he came he told her her unborn baby was dead. She got upset so he told her he would leave her for a minute.

When he came back she asked him if the baby had died the week before as she had been bleeding heavily then and he said no because she hadn't been clotting then as she was now and that there was also product in her blood - she asked him to explain this and he told her parts of the baby - she was devistated. She was due to go for a scan the next day because of the previouse weeks bleeding but could not bear to go but went on the Friday where she was told by the midwife that her baby was still alive. She went back for another sacn today and the baby is fine.

She is sueing the hospital and wants the doctor struck off.

That happened to me with dd1. Had v bad bleeding with bits, went to a&e, waited for hours, told probably lost baby but "come back tomorrow and we'll scan you". worst night of our lives but scan showed baby next day. gynae consultant told me at delivery prob lost a twin as my hcg levels were so off the chart they gave me a 1 in 4 chance of having a down's baby at 34. dd1 came out ok (pain in the neck now at times but i guess that's being a 3 year old for you!)

sometimes these doc's don't think. tell us the facts and treat us a intelligent women
