Those of you who've been following our Miscarriage Care Campaign might like to know that we had a very positive meeting with Andy Burnham in Parliament yesterday, where along with a few other organisations we started to flesh out what a policy to improve miscarriage care might look like. We've got some more work and research and data-gathering to do before we move to something concrete but there was lots of agreement in the room about the kinds of things that need to improve - all based on our Code of Care.
Thought you might like to know - we'll keep you updated of course.
In my area it is fab! They send the foetus off straight away once the MC has been surgically managed. They send notification to everyone who would be dealing with the pregnancy and the minister. There is an option to attend a service at the crematorium!
All done with the woman in mind. From my experience, appt made with EP clinic immediately.
Thanks very much all. to those of you going through it at the moment.
Those who've asked what they could do to help (because we all need more to do this time of year, right? ) - we're glad you asked...
Please go to this page to tell the Conservatives that you'd like a manifesto commitment from them too
(Norman Lamb has already signed up in principle for the LibDems although we're still working on the firm manifesto commitment)
Obviously we don't know who will win the 2015 General Election, so the only way to guarantee that this gets addressed by the next government is to get all the major parties signed up and doing the sort of preparatory work that the Labour health team is doing now.
