Danielle Jackson started this petition to Government.

I am 12 weeks pregnant. It’s is my first scan tomorrow and I had to call the hospital today to be told my partner is not aloud to attend this appointment with me due to COVID. Although the hospital did say ‘ we are doing call rounds to let people know it’s only one person per appointment, when is your scan’ I said tomorrow, and still no call I had to call them!! This means, my partner won’t see babies heartbeat, or see his baby for the first time at all. He feels like he’s not even involved in this pregnancy. This is meant to be a magical experience that BOTH parents to go through TOGETHER. This is unfair on partners. Government are depriving partners of this experience. Also, I read  today that a woman had to attend her 10 week scan alone today, to be told there was no heartbeat. That poor lady had to deal with this information ALONE. No partner was there to comfort her, or will her partner ever know what she felt like in that moment. I cannot get my head around the fact you can go eat out, go to the pub full of strangers for drinks, go shopping but partners cannot attend baby scans with their other half? It’s mind boggling!! This is absolutely devastating and soul destroying for both parents. This needs reviewing as a matter of urgency, and I will do what I can to make a change!
