Petition Allow birthing partners to be present at scans, the start of labour, birth and after the birth.
Due to COVID-19 there has been restrictions on birthing partners being present for scans, labour and birth in many hospitals.
There hasn’t been many reviews on this topic, if any at all.
It seems unfair, and an insult to new families that they can stand 2m apart from complete strangers down the beach or even in a shop, but they cannot have their partner or birthing partner there to witness first time experiences such as scans, the baby’s heart beat, labour and birth.
It needs to change.
