Pregnant woman struggling with PTSD after miscarrying urges review of early labour restrictions

An expectant mother rallying after the trauma of miscarrying said she “feels forgotten about” after she was told her wife could not support her through the birth of their first child.

A pregnant Scots mum who fears she may have lost her baby has hit out after doctors refused to examine her despite suffering multiple miscarriages.

Jodi Gray, who is more than 16 weeks pregnant, began having contractions on Tuesday afternoon and called the maternity unit at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

The 25-year-old was told medics would not be able to see her in person because she was just days short of the 17 week cut off point.

Asking for advice. Pregnant Jade Roper revealed she’s “worried” about heading into preterm labor ahead of baby No. 3.

“Anyone who’s had preterm labor contractions, can you tell me what they felt like please?” the Bachelor alum, 33, wrote on her Friday, September 18, Instagram Story. “The last two days I’ve had painful lower uterine contractions throughout times of the day. I’ve read to empty your bladder, drink water and lie on your left side for an hour, which I’ve been doing and it’s been helping. Been drinking tons of water. But they come back.”

The “Mommies Tell All” podcast cohost went on to write that she was planning to contact her “amazing” midwife despite her reluctance to do so.
