"Tests during pregnancy."

About: Ipswich Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

I believe this is a joke of a hospital. They did not pick up my unborn baby had Trisomy 18 despite 3 ultrasounds and finding 5 bilateral choroid plexus cysts at first scan. Also being an older mum, not one follow up test or amniocentesis was done or even offered.

Told by Mater at 26 weeks my baby was going to die from Trisomy 18.

Who was reading these scans? My baby had catastrophic brain and heart defects that I believe blind Freddy could have picked up.

Will be following up further with Health Minister's office.

I think the staff who cared for me were incompetent staff with bad attitudes.
