Following a conversation on this site I have decided to give our story a voice and to try and change the future for other women.
I have started a petition to government to make our NHS hospital wards and waiting rooms across the UK infertile friendly.
There are 3.5 million people affected by infertility in the UK. Yet their experience of our hospitals only add to their grief and pain. Women who have suffered miscarriage, hysterectomies, gynaecology scans and operations are placed in maternity waiting rooms and wards surrounded by the sight and sound of pregnant women and babies.
So this campaign to government is to ask for:
• Separate rooms where women can wait for appointments away from pregnant women, babies and pregnancy poster campaigns
• Separate wards for women miscarrying their babies away from pregnant women, babies and maternity wards
• Separate rooms or wards for young women having had hysterectomies away from early pregnancy departments or maternity wards
• New legislation that means all NHS departments and GP surgeries provide safe environments for the infertile

It takes just 5 people to sign the competition to go live. 10,000 for the government to respond and 100,000 for a debate about it in parliament. Considering there are 3.5 million suffering from infertility in the UK this is possible. But only with your help and the help of your friends and family. Let's do it xxx
