Audit of bereavement care provision in UK maternity units, Sands, stillbirth, neonatal death, report, 2017
Date published

This audit provides an in-depth examination of bereavement care provision in maternity units across the UK in 2016. Updating work undertaken in the Sands Bereavement Care Report 2010, the audit found that whilst there have been improvements in bereavement care in recent years, there are still aspects of care that require further attention and resourcing to ensure that all parents receive the level of care they need. The report covers topics relating to bereavement support midwives; bereavement care training; dedicated bereavement rooms and facilities; bereavement care literature and communication; and post mortem consent.
