A mother from Monmouth was told by midwives at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff that she had suffered a 'silent miscarriage'. 24 hours later, Emily Wheatley had another scan at a different hospital which revealed she was still pregnant.
The health ombudsman for Wales found the Health Board had failed to implement guidelines issued by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) that were designed to prevent the misdiagnosis of early pregnancy loss.
The health board has now been ordered to review its procedures, apologise to Emily and pay her £1,500 in recognition of the inconvenience and expense incurred in obtaining alternative antenatal care.
