'Conveyor belt' system for miscarrying women

Julie Orford, who has had two miscarriages, described the treatment she received on the NHS:

It felt very much like a conveyor belt. I found it quite insensitive. I was given a cup of tea and leaflet, and just left. We just had bays of women crying. We could hear them crying behind their curtains. Nobody really spoke to you in a sensitive manner and there was no information at all.
