With 250,000 women suffering the agony of a miscarriage every year in the UK, The Sun on Sunday teamed up with charity Tommy’s to call on the government to provide better miscarriage care.
As well as better access to mental health care, the partnership pushed for earlier support for those at higher risk and an end to the system’s ‘postcode lottery’, introducing standardised tests and treatment across the country.
The Miscarriage of Justice campaign also sought to ensure that improved care can be accessed by anyone who has suffered a miscarriage, not only after three successive miscarriages as present rules state.
The news brand called upon its readers to sign a petition demanding the Government to overhaul the system. The petition received 254,532 signatures.
Many readers will have been affected by miscarriage, so we hope they’ll join us in urging the Government to change the system; it’s great to have the Sun on Sunday backing our calls to help families get the care and support they need.Jane Brewin, CEO of Tommy’s said at the launch of the campaign
