Petition to CUMH to offer Fetal Abnormality scans to ALL Expectant Mothers sign now

The CUMH is a so called "centre of excellence" and the only maternity hospital in Cork; due to budget cuts Foetal Anomaly Scas are not being offered to all expectant parents and as such some mothers and their babies are being denied adequate care and attention when it matters.  If a mother is considered "low risk" they are not afforded this important scan, the problem with this approach is most diagnoses are in the “low risk” population.

Is it right that parents of a baby with a major foetal abnormality only find out in the delivery suite when the resource exists to prepare them psychologically for that eventuality?

Offering these scans across the board to all expectant mothers regardless of risk factor accepts the fact that all pregnancies carry some risk and all expectant mums and their babies should be treated with equal care and attention.  

Please sign this petition so that all of our babies and pregnancies are treated with equal respect in CUMH.
