Nightmare of mum-to-be after doctor's blunder
Nicola Leary, 20, was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary last Wednesday after experiencing internal bleeding when a gynaecologist had told her that she had lost her baby.

When she went back to the hospital two days later to have the foetus removed, a nurse scanned her tummy and asked in amazement: “Who the hell told you your baby was dead?

“You have a perfectly healthy baby. And it's a big baby”.

Nicola feels if she had not fled the hospital she would have had lost her perfectly healthy baby.

Nicola said: “the doctor started by telling me that my blood type was RhD negative, and my baby's was RhD positive.

“He said if my baby was bleeding, my body would try to kill its blood cells as it would see them as alien.

“He kept saying, 'Do you understand? Do you understand?' 'He examined me, and then he took off his plastic glove and hid it away.

“He took my hand and started patting it. Then he said,’ I’m very sorry, but you've lost your baby.' 'I was completely shocked. 'Then he told me,’ We’ll have to get you cleaned out. Can you stay overnight?”

She added: "I’m so angry at that doctor. He put me through hell”.

A spokeswoman for NHS Greater Glasgow, which governs the Royal Infirmary, said: “Although we cannot discuss individual cases, we would like to apologise for any distress caused to Ms Leary”.
