My feeling is that because miscarriage is unfortunately so common (1 in 4 or 5 pregnancies) it can perhaps be treated in a clinical fashion ie without compassion by some (NB some) staff. In the course of five maternity experiences (three miscarriages, two healthy babies) I received mostly wonderful, but some horrendous, care.
Thoughts, empathy and thanks to all parents posting their experiences here and over on #maternityire. Better out than in, as they say.
