"Burst ectopic pregnancy"

About: Bunbury Hospital / Surgical Ward Warren Hospital / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

It was an absolutely hectic day, started the day off thinking I was pregnant with our first baby and then found out that it unfortunately turned into an ectopic pregnancy that had burst, the staff at Manjimup were so onto it, they did not muck around, ambo was organised and I was ready to go in no time. I'd like to say a special thanks to Barbara, the beautiful nurse that came with me, she kept me so calm and strong. From the bottom of my heart thank you! Also thanks to Tamara the ambo driver, such a brilliant driver!

They rushed me in the ambulance to Bunbury’s lovely hospital. Every single person that I saw at your hospital was so caring and nice. They made a confusing sad day that little bit easier, I'm truly grateful for the way they treated me, they were sensitive with me as I was in a very fragile state. I wish I could remember all their names but the beautiful lady Brodie I had last made me feel confident and strong especially after the surgery I had just been though (they also had to take my right fallopian tube) we bonded over our love of tattoos and her groovy donut socks. She even wheelchaired me out to my car.

In conclusion, your staff were everything I needed them to be on that day, extremely caring and supportive. They explained everything in great detail which made me feel better. They were amazing and I'm forever grateful for all of them!

Thank you so much!
