A Big Brother star has revealed she was handed her dead baby in a plastic bag following a miscarriage.Sallie Axl took to Facebook to slam the Manchester hospital she was rushed to, as well as the NHS, comparing her experience to “being handed a takeaway”.
Sallie – who is mother to four-year-old daughter Nirvana – also confessed she nearly died, because she was left with her dead child still inside her, leading to a severe infection. She wrote: “On the 17th of July I received my dead baby at hospital in a box and a plastic bag… !! With that another bag of medicines and sent on my way home to grieve.”
Sallie continued: “My dead baby was treated no more than someone handing me over a takeaway. This is the first time I have been able to talk about this as my ordeal was disgusting in Manchester. When I woke up in a blood-stained bed and gown it took days for the nurses to change them, leaving me in the remainders of the miscarriage and blood all over the floor.”
“There was no compassion and one nurse referred to my unborn child as a ‘IT’ talking about getting her tested and speaking about taking a slithering off my baby. This should not happen to women who lose their unborn children!! I should NOT have been left to take my dead child home in a plastic bag!”
