1 in 4 pregnancies in UK end in loss during pregnancy or birth.

I was very naive to believe that I wouldn’t be 1 in 4 to suffer a loss. During my first miscarriage at 9 weeks, I was finally admitted into hospital after what felt like not being taken seriously to have a scan and which showed that I had in fact miscarried our baby, I went on to have 2 more early pregnancy losses, which is now 3 consecutive miscarriages and now recurrent miscarriage. After my third miscarriage I still have not been offered any testing to find out if there is a reason to why I’m struggling to carry my babies. 

As for many other women, after my miscarriages had been confirmed I was sent home with nothing but tears in my eyes. Receiving very little compassion and lack emotional support from a medical point of view, no guidance on where to reach out to for this particular circumstance because pregnancy loss and stillbirth are such taboo subjects is wrong especially when losses are a lot more common than most realise.

 The aim of this petition is to make the NHS to offer guidance, whether that be support groups, contacts for those who specialise in loss who can give you the important support you need and point you in the direction to those who have also experienced similar trauma because sometimes confiding in a stranger is easier than confiding in a loved one. A big one for me is making sure the NHS becomes more sympathetic to those who have suffered pregnancy loss, recurrent miscarriage and stillbirth.
