To review miscarriage testing practice across Europe with a view to standardising practice in a way which assists women, ideally to implement the practice of testing following one miscarriage.

This petition had 231 supporters


In Scotland, it is only women who suffer recurrent miscarriages - three consecutive miscarriages in a row - in the first trimester who are offered testing or women in the second trimester. This is not the case in other European countries. The SCIM Management Committee would like an immediate review of the testing practice across Europe to assist in relieving the anxiety and distress caused by different guidelines. Our clients regularly report to us the distress that these differences cause them. We believe that it is a matter for European direction.

It is our intention to represent our petition to Scottish Parliament at sometime in the future. In the meantime we are taking it to European Parliament. We would like to thank our supporters for signing the petition and also thank the MSPs and MPs who have helped us to have our voices heard.
