The Sands Bereavement Care Report, stillbirth, neonatal death

This is the report of an online survey of UK maternity units we carried out in May 2009 to see how far units were following the recommendations in the Sands Guidelines. Although most units were providing care in line with the standards set out in the Guidelines, the survey found that care was poorly resourced and organised in about 20% of units, and was patchy in others.
