The 15th of October is the celebration of the world gestational and perinatal death awareness day. And we are achieving our goals:
- We have already presented the written request in the Community of Madrid, the Regional Government of Andalusia and Catalonia.. And we know of other associations that have also presented it, as well as a good number of individuals.
- The social networks are echoing our petitionespecially on Instagram, where a large group of mothers have joined in. It is not just a question of a specific number of signatures but of being present on social networks and in the media.
- We have already arranged andnterviews with the health spokespersons of the different parliamentary groups in Andalusia. In Madrid and Valencia we are also working to move forward with the proposal that has already taken shape.
Being able to say goodbye to a child who dies before birth, knowing that he or she does not end up in a "surgical trash" bin and having the support and empathy in perinatal bereavement from hospital staff is a real need that the vast majority of families have felt. And we we are giving a real, tangible answer with a perfectly viable proposal.
We have drawn from the depths of mothers' hearts a silent cry to give it voice.
