Re: BBC Radio 4, Women’s Hour


    Hi Michelle.
    Well done again for all your efforts to buying awareness & hopefully change things.
    Grace was born at 24 weeks & because she lived for 10 hours I have birth & death certificates for her. Bizarrely I was also entitled to claim child benefit for her, 8 weeks payment I think. Having held my tiny but viable 24 week daughter I think it’s disgraceful that had she been stillborn she would not have had a birth certificate, and had she been born stillborn just days earlier she would have been classed as a miscarriage.
    Good luck tomorrow. I hope to be listening.
    Max, x
