Closed petition Push the government into introducing a separate ward other than maternity ward, for families going through a miscarriage
After seeing what the NHS put me and my wife through when she was having her miscarriage: being sent to have a scan with mums to be and just telling us 'You're having a miscarriage, go home', that was it. Then told to come back a few days later to be made to sit in a room with people coming out with their scan pictures, is not fair. There needs to be a separate ward.
When we asked if there was somewhere else we could wait they said it was there or nowhere. This had a massive detrimental effect on our mental health. How did they know we were strong enough to leave the hospital? They didn't, this needs to change.
