About us

The Stillbirth and neonatal death charity (Sands)  and the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) are pleased that there are now ten partner charities working collaboratively to support this on-line network for bereavement care professionals involved or interested in the care offered to parents when a baby dies.

The ten partner charities are the Stillbirth and neonatal death charity (Sands) and the Royal College of Midwives (RCM), Antenatal Results & Choices (ARC), Bliss, Child Bereavement UK (CBUK), the Lullaby Trust, Miscarriage Association (MA), The Multiple Births Foundation (MBF), National Maternity Support Foundation (NMSF)  and the Twins & Multiple Births Association (Tamba).

The ten partner charities behind the Bereavement Care Network support the aims of this Network to:

  • promote improvement in all aspects of bereavement care by supporting professionals in doing a difficult job to the best of their abilities
  • provide a confidential, safe space for professionals to network, offload, seek information, advice and peer support
  • facilitate the sharing of best practice points and updates on policy, research and documentation related to pregnancy loss and the death of a baby
