My name is Scott McCluskey and I would like to give you a brief insight of my life, I had been with my partner for around 3 years before she fell pregnant, I was roughly 21 and she was 20 at 5 and a half months pregnant she started losing blood, so we rushed off to the hospital for her to be kept in overnight for observation, and I was told to go home,.
I asked the hospital if I could stay with her and they told me no, I knew she was in a bad way so told them that I would sleep on the bench outside because if anything happened I was already at the hospital, but I was told if you do that we will have you arrested, so I felt the right decision was to come home after the hospital promised me they would phone me early enough in the morning should I need to get there,.
I was called at 8.10am telling me I had to be at the hospital within 20 minutes, now I don’t care who you are even superman couldn’t get there that fast, anyhow by the time I got there some 45 minutes later, I was told that my partner had been rushes to theatre for an emergency termination as she was suffering from an ectopic pregnancy, well that was it my heart sank as I sat in the waiting room waiting for her to come out of theatre, approximately 3 hours after she came round from her procedure we was given a leaflet and sent on our merry way.
we never got to see our child or even say our goodbyes, we just got told I’m sorry, now this to me was wrong we had just had our dreams of being parents shattered and all’s they done was discharge us with a pamphlet, no guidance no support no Counselling no fuck all, on the 22/07/18 this would of happened 19 years ago and have we got any further or closer to breaking this delicate news gently answer no we haven’t.
