This petition had 359 supporters


My name is sharon and i lost twins 4 years ago,  after i went through a lot of tests with the hospital who say there is nothing wrong i have still been unable to concieve i have asked for IVF on the NHS and due to my partner having a living child from a previous relationship we are not entitled to NHS IVF help. The twins are my first children i have conceived.  

 I have the continuned support from Toby Perkins the MP of Chesterfield whos has been writing to the CCG and they have replied that they will not change the rule that couples that have a living child from a previous relationship can not have NHS IVF.  The CCG have only had 3 applications since april 2013 asking for help.  I feel this is unfair to me and many other couples out there.  With starting this petition i want to make a change it my not change for me or others in the past but lets help change the future for the other couples out their , It feels to me that the CCG are playing post code lottory with peaples lifes ,  i would love a child so lets help others so they are not in a sad postion like i am - please help to make a change and let all those couples be heard and make a difference in couples lifes for the future.
