Within hours of Piran being born a midwife called a pediatrician to come and check him because they were concerned about some green bile he was throwing up. She came and he was whisked into Special Care where he stayed for five days with a team of doctors and nurses looking after him twenty four hours a day.
Both of my children were born in hospital. They have both been fully vaccinated. Health workers have come to our home to support us. We are encouraged to visit our doctor if we have any concerns ‘just in case’.
Just in case.
We have all this access to healthcare and healthcare workers and I know we can take it for granted. There are people in this world that don’t have any access at all. That just can’t be right. There is no ‘just in case’ for them.
There is so much more to say, but Kate is awake so please take the time to sign the petition. It took me less than 30 seconds. Then go here and read about the 100 word challenge. Find the time to take part. Spread the word.
