I had 2 miscarriages in 2014, I felt like I wasn't allowed to talk about them. I feel the NHS isn't equipped to deal with miscarriage sufferers. Nothing is done to help them or even to find out why!

I suffered emotional trauma as a result of the miscarriages, I lost my job, as my employer wasn't understanding and they didn't even pay me what I should have received.

We then stopped trying for a while whilst we moved and I found another job. I then had my third pregnancy and I carried a boy and gave birth at 38+5. He is now a healthy 5 month old!

I had bleeding at 11 weeks, but other than that I had no complications!
