In recent months Sands has been working closely with EastEnders on an upcoming storyline which sees characters Shabnam Masood and Kush Kazemi’s baby stillborn. The storyline will follow Shabnam and Kush as they suffer the death of their baby and the devastating impact it has on their lives.  Our Bereavement Support Services team has worked closely with the writers and actors on this storyline to help and advise them.

We really appreciate their dedication to ensuring that they portray the impact that the death of a baby has on bereaved families as truthfully as possible. Everyone involved has approached this storyline with incredible sensitivity.

For further details please see the BBC One website.

The storyline will air at the end of August.
