Review NHS treatment of pregnant women experiencing reduced fetal movements
I want the Government to review how NHS clinicians respond when pregnant women report reduced fetal movement, and in particular the scans that are offered to assess the health of the baby.
I suffered a still birth and I had gone to the triage on three separate occasions with reduced fetal movements, I was examined with a Doppler that showed tachycardia then put on a CTG machine.
Currently only 1% of fetal tachycardia is sustained therefore a Doppler or up to 60 minutes on a CTG machine can miss these intermittent tachycardic episodes, whereas a full scan could see any abnormalities.
A review should look at whether current practice is fit for purpose, or should be reformed.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
