Sands is the stillbirth and neonatal death charity. We operate throughout the UK, supporting anyone affected by the death of a baby, working to improve the care bereaved parents receive, and promoting research to reduce the loss of babies’ lives.
We provide free support to anyone affected by the death of a baby through our national helpline, forum and network of support groups.
We train thousands of midwives, doctors and other professionals so that they can provide the care and support parents desperately need when their baby has died.
We are pioneering a National Bereavement Care Pathway that would make providing excellent bereavement care a priority for all hospitals.
And we fund research to reduce the number of babies who die every day in the UK.
But there is much more work to be done.Sands Website
