I found out that I had an ectopic pregnancy. We are from another town and as they didn't have the facilities there we had to come to Sale. The staff here are lovely and very helpful.
My issue is I am in a room with 3 men. After having such an emotional and very private surgery I was under the impression that I would be placed in a women's ward to recover. I have no issue with being in a mixed gender room for any other procedure. But to have my pregnancy removed and then be placed into this room and expected to share a toilet and bathroom with these men is so very disrespectful. It may be just another procedure to medical staff but to me my baby died yesterday and I am a grieving mother.
Mental health is just as important as physical health but here at Sale I get the feeling that we are just numbers and beds. I do hope this doesn't fall on deaf ears and no other mother has to go through the grief and humiliation like I have.
