I was 31. Midwife at the John Radcliffe.
I was doing a stint in the antenatal clinic.
Three of my patients miscarried in one week.
Others were in their fifth and sixth month. We managed to save two of the poor babies.
Next week, five more miscarried.
Then the miscarriages started happening earlier.
I remember booking a woman in for her next appointment
and noticing that the page seven months ahead was completely blank.
Not a single name.
I rang a friend who was working at Queen Charlotte's,
and she had no new pregnancies, either.
She then rang her sister in Sydney.
And it was the same thing there.
You can relax. She's finished.
As the sound of the playgrounds faded,
the despair set in.
Very odd what happens in a world without children's voices.
I was there at the end.
Now you're gonna be there at the beginning.
Yeah.
I'll be there at the beginning.
Thank you.
Kee, come on! We've got to go!
