This article in the Manchester Evening News details the experience of Amy, whose daughter Harper was stillborn following failings in Amy's care. After being induced, Amy was left on her own in a room at the Royal Oldham Hospital's maternity unit overnight, without any monitoring. She had raised concerns about her baby's reduced movements but was denied additional checks. When Amy was finally checked in the morning, Harper had no heartbeat.
An internal investigation conducted by The Royal Oldham Hospital found that if Amy had received appropriate monitoring, CTG abnormalities would have been noticed. This would have led to an escalation in her care, earlier delivery and Harper is likely to have been born alive.
