Mary Agyeiwaa Agyapong Baby Daughter
The baby daughter of a “highly-valued and loved” nurse Mary Agyeiwaa Agyapong has been delivered successfully after she died from Covid-19.
Lobby groups and charities, including Pregnant Then Screwed(PTS) and Maternity Action, have written to the the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) urging it to change its guidance, which states women who are less than 28 weeks pregnant can continue in non-Covid patient-facing roles if necessary precautions are taken. More than 50,000 people have signed a petition calling for more clarity and paid leave for pregnant healthcare workers.
Some pregnant women are being “gaslighted” by bosses and sometimes colleagues to go to work on the frontline, with a number of health trusts interpreting the RCOG guidelines differently, said Joeli Brearley, the founder and director of PTS.
Agyapong’s colleagues at Luton and Dunstable University hospital said she was “a fabulous nurse, and a great example of what we stand for”. The NHS trust’s chief executive, David Carter, said the survival of her baby daughter was a “beacon of light at this very dark time”.
