    Default Just need a place to grieve

    My name is Shelly. I am 34 and on 31 July of this year my beautiful little boy, Damien Michael, was still born (supposedly) from placental abruption complications. I was exactly 37 weeks on the morning that I delivered. I went into what I thought was regular labor on the thirtieth and around 8:30 in the evening was admitted to the hosptial. Around 11 things started going horrible wrong and at 12:13 am my little angel was delivered via emergency caesarean. As of right now, there are so many unanswered questions and doubts about my care received that my husband is looking into a wrongful death/malpractice suit. Unfortunately, I cannot be the one to bring the lawsuit (although I will definitely testify) because an active duty service member cannot sue the military hospital for treatment that was received. Any way, I just wanted to introduce myself to you ladies. Thank you for your ear.

    I am so sorry for your loss and I am sorry that your care was not better. That is so disheartening. I hope You and your DH are able to find some answers. This is a very supportive board. We will always be here to listen.
    Much Love

    Hey there sweetie. I am so sorry for your loss.



    You will know my story from the PM i sent, but i wanted to add that we too considered taking some form of action against the NHS, but when we thought about it we decided not to. Things are difficult here with the NHS. Resources are already stretched and any money that they used to investigate our case, or even pay us in compensation (not that that would have happened) would have come directly away from treating other people and we didnt want that. On saying that though, things are very different in the States, i know that.

    I hope you dont mind me asking. Did you have any diagnosed problems with your placenta at all? Was it low at any point? The reason i ask is that they said that they told me i had had an abruption at first, and i thought this for 3 months, but then when we went to our debriefing in January it turned out that it was Vasa Praevia instead. The symptoms of Vasa Praevia are very similar to an abruption, but the abruption is more common, so they thought it was that.

    Again, i am sincerely sorry for the painful loss of your baby. Please continue to post here whenever you feel the need. Unfortunately we all know what it's like to loose a baby, and i know what it's like to get so close to the end, like you.
