Introduction of baby loss certificate important for bereaved families – Kimmins

Sinn Féin MLA Liz Kimmins has said the introduction of a certificate to acknowledge baby loss during pregnancy before 24 weeks would acknowledge the loss experienced by families.

Announcing that Sinn Féin will bring a motion to the Assembly on Monday supporting a Baby Loss Certificate scheme, the party’s health spokesperson said:

“Losing a baby during pregnancy can be devastating, and acknowledging that baby can be hugely important for families.

“Sinn Féin will bring a motion to the Assembly supporting the development of a Baby Loss Certificate scheme to ensure that bereaved parents can have an official document acknowledging a baby lost during pregnancy before 24 weeks.

“This follows the welcome commitment from the finance minister last week to review this scheme, working alongside the health minister, which recognises baby loss in early pregnancy.

“Sinn Féin are also conducting an online survey to hear the views of parents and families on the potential of a Baby Loss Certificate for the north.”
