Baby Steps Prematurity started this petition to UK Parliament and

Giving birth prematurely can have extreme consequences on mental health. From a traumatic birth, to adjusting to life with a premature baby, thousands of new mothers and fathers suffer from Post Traumatic Stress and Post Natal Depression every year with little to no intervention or health services available to them. Due to the incredible advances in medicine, more premature babies are given the chance to survive but our mental health services have not progressed in this field. There needs to be a dramatic increase of mental health services available to premature families and an overall increase of awareness to ensure that families get the support they need.
