P-04-603 Helping Babies Born at 22 Weeks to Survive

We call upon the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to:

        change the guidelines so that babies born after 22 weeks and who show signs of life are given appropriate medical care; and

        In changing these guidelines ensure that they include a guarantee that a Paediatrician will review and weigh every baby born after 22 weeks who shows signs of life immediately after their birth so that parents and clinicians can make informed decisions based on the individual baby’s chance of survival.
