Miscarriage Care Campaign: how to get involved

We're asking politicians to pledge to improve miscarriage care, based on the principles in our Code, by 2020 - the end of the next parliament.

UPDATE: September 2014 - Liberal Democrat Health Minister Norman Lamb has pledged his personal support and will argue for the miscarriage commitment to be included in the Liberal Democrat manifesto.

Labour Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham pledged to include commitment to improve miscarriage care in Labour's 2015 manifesto. Read the full webchat here.

This is great news, but to be sure that care will improve, we need commitment not only from Labour and the Liberal Democrats, but from the Conservatives too.

Please ask Jeremy Hunt (@Jeremy_Hunt) for his support - click the button to the right to Tweet at him. 

Health trusts can make changes to the way they treat their own patients, and some trusts already provide brilliant care, but the only way to ensure good care for all is if the politicians at the top take personal responsibility to improve the care women receive.

Don't use Twitter? Please send an email to Secretary of State for Health Jeremy Hunt - mb-sofs@dh.gsi.gov.uk:

We need to ask him to include a promise in the next Conservative manifesto to make miscarriage care better. Accounts of personal experiences are particularly effective for explaining why we need his support, but we've included some suggested text below to start you off.

Dear Mr Hunt,

I know you'll be concerned about the care received by women who miscarry so please let me know you're backing Mumsnet's campaign for better miscarriage care. I'm asking you to include a manifesto commitment to improve miscarriage care for all women by 2020.
