What can I do about going into labor early and losing my son?

I was never helped, just left in the ER. I kept telling nurses I had a lot of pressure and they never helped me. Now I am so depressed and have no reason . Why?

First of all, I'm truly sorry for your loss. 

What you really need to do here is to speak with an attorney who specializes in medical malpractice cases.  They'll best be able to advise as to whether or not you have a claim against the hospital.  An initial consultation such as this is free.  If you need help in locating an attorney in your area you can refer to www.Attorneypages.com

Best of luck.
