It's National Thrombosis week! -Reading Maternity Voices

It's National Thrombosis week!

PLEASE make yourself aware of the signs and symptoms, in particular if you're pregnant or recently given birth, if you've recently had surgery or a long hospital stay, or you're less mobile than usual. It. Can. Kill.

I was lucky enough to have survived a knee-to-navel DVT but I've been left with lifelong issues and I'm on anticoagulants for life. I didn't think it would happen to me as mine occurred during a hospital stay. I assumed that any necessary preventative measures would be carried out but they weren't. I wasn't risk-assessed. I wasn't given stockings. I wasn't given heparin injections. Take nothing for granted.
