Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Shop News -

Now, along with her mum Wafa Bay­field, Lena has also set up a pe­ti­tion in a bid to raise aware­ness for other women with the same con­di­tion and call­ing on the health ser­vice to let them know about the cer­vi­cal stitch pro­ce­dure and sup­port avail­able.

It has so far gained more than 10,000 sig­na­tures on­line.

She said: “I’ve been con­tacted by lots of women who have had sim­i­lar ex­pe­ri­ences from around the world.

“The nec­es­sary pro­ce­dures aren’t be­ing put in place to make sure this doesn’t hap­pen.

“Just be­cause it’s com­mon that this is mis­di­ag­nosed does not mean that it is ac­cept­able.

“Proper checks need to be put in place.”
