Access to Maternity / Child Bereavement Services

I have received a lot of emails in the past week asking me to support the following:

• Giving all families a maternity guarantee of a personalised care journey that fits their needs.
• Giving all sick and premature babies the best chance of survival and quality of life.
• Providing every family with the bereavement care they need after pregnancy or baby loss.

The answer to whether I support these measures is Yes, Yes and Yes. For me it is an absolute no-brainer.

As the son of a midwife of 28 years who was not only a pioneer of maternal medicine in Scotland being a g-grade sister midwife, but who helped set up maternity facilities in impoverished countries such as Malawi (; I can say Yes, Yes and Yes to all three of the points. I wholly support them.
