Make it compulsory for hospitals to provide aftercare after miscarriage.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

An estimated 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage (1 in 5 if we only count women who realised/reported the miscarriage) and whilst the medical care they they receive can be brilliant and every step is usually taken to ensure that they recover physically, the emotional support after the loss of a baby, is significantly lacking in this country. Women are not being told about the emotional support that is available, either whilst at the hospital or by their GP. They are unfortunately resorting to finding their own support, with talking therapy with a counsellor, or even calling support helplines.

Unfortunately the majority of women and their families aren't even aware this support is available and are left to deal with the emotions of their loss,on their own, and this can have a significant and negative affect, later down the line. I am campaigning for it to now be compulsory for hospitals and gp's to sign post women to what support is available and suitable for their needs, before they either leave the hospital or soon after. 

The loss of a baby at any stage of pregnancy or after their born is an absolute tragedy and a dark, scary time in a families life, and more needs to be done to ensure every single person who suffers, is provided with the support they deserve.
