MP weeps in commons while sharing her experience of stillbirths

The Labour MP for Washingon and Sunderland West broke down in the commons as she shared her own personal experience of having a still born baby.

Sharon Hodgson's daughter Lucy was delivered three days short of the required 24-week legal age to be considered viable, which meant her death was recorded as miscarriage, meaning she never officially existed.

Emotionally charged Commons hears stillbirth account

The heartbreaking admission came during a debate on a bill to allow heterosexual couples to form civil partnerships, and for all stillborn deaths to be registered.
