Led by Sands and The Royal College of Midwives (RCM), along with Antenatal Results and Choices (ARC) and Child Bereavement UK, the updated and improved Bereavement Care Network now includes six further partner charities: Bliss, the Miscarriage Association, Multiple Birth Foundation, Tamba, (Twins and Multiple Births Association), Lullaby Trust and the National Maternity Support Foundation (NMSF).
The Bereavement Care Network is a free online resource for professionals who provide, or have an interest in, bereavement care for parents whose baby dies. The Bereavement Care Network aims to enhance the knowledge, insight and understanding of professionals around bereavement and bereavement care following a pregnancy loss or the death of a baby. It enables professionals to share best practice, exchange ideas, share experiences, ask questions and seek informal peer support. The Bereavement Care Network supports professionals to deliver the best possible bereavement care by keeping users informed of relevant developments, research and resources.
Since the original site was set up, interest in bereavement care and best practice has increased considerably so we decided to make sure the resources available were of the highest standard to reflect the quality of care so many health professionals are now providing to bereaved parents.
By joining the network, you will have the opportunity to network with other users and gain access to the resources page, one space hosting the relevant resources of 10 charities around bereavement care.
