Sign Right Here! Save The Children

(Thanks to @TheBoyandMe @mum2babyinsomniac and @mumonthebrink for tagging me)

“9cm?!! That’s it? What do you mean it’s not progressing?!”

I’d been in labour for about 28 hours and I felt as high as a kite on my excellent combination of gas & air and Diarmorphine. My labour had stopped dead in it’s tracks. An alarm went off and a Doctor shouted “It’s not good news!”. They had to do an emergency c section and to get Baby Boy out. I will always be grateful for what they did for me.

Unfortunately this help is not always available to those in countries like Ethiopia. They need Healthworkers right now to improve things, help save lives and give every baby the best possible start in life.

On Tuesday, Chris Mosler (@ChristineMosler) will attend the UN General Assembly in New York. She is going there with Liz Scarff on behalf of Save the Children to pressure David Cameron to play his full part in solving the health worker crisis. There is a target of 60,000 signatures on the petition by Tuesday. At the moment that petition sits at 41,863 can we change that? Sure we can!

SHE NEEDS 60,000 by Tuesday. Lets Help her get that and more!!!

What you can do…..Sign┬áthe petition….. SIGN RIGHT HERE!

Then the challenge set by @HelloItsGemma and @Michelletwinmum is that we want (need) to see 100 posts of 100 words linked up here by Tuesday. If 100 bloggers each write a post about this and encourage more signatures that could make a massive dent in the 20,000 signature shortfall that we sit with right now.

Write your 100 words about a great health professional you have encountered in your life. Add a link to the petition and either link or add in some information from Save the Children about the #Healthworkers campaign

Link to a number of other bloggers/ vloggers and ask them to do the same.

Now I Tag………….

    It gives me chills that for us here, we can have a c section as required if either mum or baby in danger. Some are definatley not so lucky x

    We’re so lucky to be in a position where we have the option of c section if it comes to it. I really hope this petition gets the signatures it needs x
