The publisher is working with the charity Tommy’s to call for the government to provide better miscarriage care
As well as better access to mental health care, the partnership is pushing 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.
It also wants to make sure these can be accessed by anyone who has suffered a miscarriage, not only after three successive miscarriages as present rules state.
According to the campaign’s mission statement: “250,000 women will suffer the agony of a miscarriage every single year in the UK – but none of them are entitled to specialist treatment until they have lost three pregnancies in a row.”
In its drive for better treatment, The Sun on Sunday is working with Tommy’s, the largest UK charity researching the causes of miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth.
Jane Brewin, CEO of Tommy’s, backs The Sun on Sunday’s campaign, saying: “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.”
