Busisiwe Ndabangaye was sent home after a routine check-up revealed the foetus was dead.
She was told to return the following day, but when she did, Groote Schuur Hospital (GSH) turned her away due to a lack of beds.
“They called me to tell me that I should come to Mowbray Maternity Hospital and that is where the procedure will be done. The operation was done at around 7.30am.
“I am feeling very much relieved, but the trauma is still there,” she said.
After being given the run-around by the hospital, Ndabangaye was unhappy with the way she was treated.
