MP seeks constituents’ views on Baby Loss

Gloucester MP Richard Graham would like to hear from constituents who have lost a baby due to “Cot Death” or more specific conditions or situations, before he speaks in a debate on the 9th October on baby loss issues. “One of my sisters lost a baby” Richard said, and “it was a very sad time for the family”. “This Government has changed the law on bereavement leave, enshrining the right to paid leave for bereaved parents, and I am aware constituents who have been through such a loss may have views. For example, on what they think Government, the NHS and communities can do; whether there are medical, communication and other lessons to learn, and whether we have enough of a support network.” Richard would like to hear from anyone who would like to share their thoughts and experience in confidence and anonymously, unless anyone wishes otherwise, so that Richard can help to raise awareness of this issue during Baby Loss Awareness Week. Gloucester residents are encouraged to email Richard on Richard.graham.mp@parliament.uk.
