Welcome to pyramid of antenatal change (POAC)

 

POAC Foundation is dedicated to our daughters Amalia Nicole Devine born asleep @ full term on 21st Oct 2007 & Holly Rose Devine aged 5.

 

And our focus is to reduce preventable stillbirths by informing & empowering parents about the latest health advancements before during & after pregnancy. We believe that advancement in antenatal screening with ultrasound will lead to a better understanding/prevention of stillbirth & assist in the prevention of umbilical cord accidents (UCA) thus reducing stillbirth & avoidable neurological damage.

2018 NHS Obstetrics / Midwife litigation

Why did my baby had to die?' Scots’ teen mum gives birth to stillborn after midwifes told her to take paracetamol for stomach pains 'Claudia Cierpial, 18, had a scan at 20 weeks showing her baby girl was healthy, but began to suffer painful stomach aches six weeks later.

UK Dr’s finally open up about

Umbilical Cord Accidents (UCA)

UK Drs (Obstetricians/OBYG) advice to UK actress Jennifer Metcalfe Holyoaks actress  about the dangers of UCA during pregnancy, leading to stillbirth or brain damage, silently affecting thousands of families worldwide.  After years of hiding and ignoring information, NHS Drs finally advise, unfortunately to just a few lucky ladies, about  the risks of stillbirth and brain damage due to Umbilical Cord Accidents, Cord Entanglement, Nuchal Cord (around babies' neck), true knots,  cord insertion, etc.,  Jennifer Metcalfe Holyoaks actress reveals live on UK TV. For the past 10 years we POAC have advocated that all pregnancies be screened for cord complication including a powerful presentation in London Royal College of obstetrics and gynaecology. To date both the RCOG & RCM UK deny and avoid screening for umbilical cord entanglement and that's an injustice to parents and babies to whom both colleges serve. Urgent Public Inquiry Needed

Pauline Hull,

founder of elective caesarean & Fully supports POAC

Pauline says POAC deserves recognition for its commitment to exploring new research and helping prevent the loss of precious lives. Technology is often seen as a last resort in pregnancy and childbirth, and the tendency is to approach intervention as a last resort only. In fact, using technology during pregnancy could help many women to make a more informed choice about their birth plan, in consultation with a medical professional.
