Mum continues stillbirth campaign

 Published on: 17th February 2019   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Rickmansworth mum who recently had twins is continuing her campaign for more financial support for people who lose their baby before 24 weeks.

Taylor Kilgour, a 27-year-old bookkeeper, believes parents who lose their baby before 24 weeks gestation need more support.

Taylor previously lost a baby at 23 weeks gestation and said that, while her employer was very understanding, many aren’t and legally, it’s only if you lose a baby after 24 weeks that you are entitled to statutory maternity leave as a minimum.

Despite recently having twins, Taylor hasn’t taken her eyes off her target of getting the laws changed through her ePetition.

She said: “I’m busy and it’s been stressful having twins, but it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

“I’m still sharing the link to the petition every week, I think it’s got just under 2,000 signatures.

“It’s so important that new laws come in to support mum’s who have a stillbirth in under 24 weeks and I’m just hoping to keep gaining people’s attention.”
