Letters to engage parents in the Perinatal Mortality Review process

The following letter templates have been designed to help healthcare professionals to engage parents in the Perinatal Mortality Review process, in conjunction with the use of the Perinatal Mortality Review Tool (PMRT). The letters were developed by a subgroup of the Sands/Department of Health Task and Finish Group to standardise perinatal mortality review and have been updated by the National Bereavement Care Pathway Parent Advisory Group. 

The first template is for parents whose baby died before birth, the second for parents whose baby died during or after birth.
