Joy replaced by devastation
It was Ms Bayfield’s first pregnancy, and now she fears she has lost her last chance to have a child.
She said: “It’s distressing for me to talk about. I am very upset and emotional that I lost my baby. I don’t know how to put it into words. For years I wanted a child. I was told it was nearly impossible for me to get pregnant without treatment.
“So when I was told I was I was shocked, I didn’t believe it.
“But I was also pleased that it was happening. I was worried after the problems started about whether I could carry my baby to full term, but I didn’t expect things to go so wrong.”
It took a toll on her relationship with her ex-husband, and says that because she now has an underlying health condition she will not be able to get insurance for private healthcare.
The impact has been so devastating that she is seeking therapy to talk about what happened.
