Change laws to allow stillborns before 24weeks to get birth/death certificates
The law on receiving birth and death certificates for stillborn babies born before 24 weeks NEEDS to change. In a Democratic world to ignore the existence of these babies whos hearts once beat inside the womb. The mother gives birth therefore the baby should be accounted for what they are...a person
A memory certificate is a joke & adds salt to the wound of the already grieving parents and families. Why should a baby born stillborn not be seen as a person when it has a heart and is formed and the mother has gone through the ordeal of delivering her dead baby. It's wrong so many babies are simply not seen as existing just because they died before being born or shortly after birth. That baby lived for however many weeks it deserves a certificate and existence. A memory. As well as a funeral.
