The death of a baby, whether it’s during the latter stages of pregnancy, during birth or soon after is one of the most painful and soul destroying events that could ever happen. And here in Britain we have one of the highest rates of stillbirths in the developed world.
This petition is to tell our government we demand immediate action!
This petition is to demand direct funding for research to try and reduce the number of stillbirths and neonatal deaths happening each year in the UK; to tell our government to stop the changes to the NHS which will lead to the numbers of front line staff being reduced and could mean an increase in the number of stillbirth and neonatal death; to demand the government immediately abolish the risk assessment policy so all pregnant women are closely monitored throughout their entire pregnancy; and to get the government to address why the UK has more stillborn and neonatal deaths than most EU countries including France, Germany, Ireland Spain, and in the league table of the high-income countries we sit way down the list at 33rd out of 35
