A bereaved father who blames the Luton&Dunstable Hospital for his daughter’s stillbirth is unhappy with their response to the tragedy.

Hospital spokesman Barry Mayes told the Luton News the hospital had offered condolences to Mohammed Amin and his wife Mousomi Shabnam after the death of their first child, Annha Beg, but Mr Amin disputes this.

He said: “No one from the hospital has come to visit us, apart from the midwife, but this is standard maternity service.

“They have not given us an apology or excuse for their negligence and failure to provide a minimum standard.

“Their behaviour is not acceptable.”
The process operator of Biscot Road added: “My wife is depressed and suffering mental health issues and we have still not had any proper help.

“One of my colleagues has told me a friend of his lost a baby the same way.”
Mr Amin is now considering setting up a workshop for other couples who have had a similar experience.

He said: “The purpose will be to offer support and raise awareness of stillbirth and how it can prevented.

“We have set up a foundation in Aanha Beg’s name and want other parents to email us at aanha.justice@gamil.com”

> Mr Amin contacted this newspaper two weeks ago to complain about the treatment he and his wife had received. The L&D told the Luton News that they were undertaking an investigation and that senior staff had met with both parents.
