Sands is a member of the Pregnancy & Baby Charities Network of UK charities whose focus includes one or more of the following:
- to reduce the number of babies who die during pregnancy, birth or in the early weeks of life
- to reduce morbidity in newborn babies and improve care for these babies and their parents
- to improve care throughout the path to parenthood; before, during and after pregnancy and after losing a baby or pregnancy
Sands has worked collaboratively with 21 other pregnancy and baby charities over a number of years to influence policy in order to address inequalities and improve outcomes across the country.
We are pleased to publish The Pregnancy and Baby Charities Network manifesto and invite all political parties to incorporate its content into their own party manifestos for the next general election.
