Stillbirth and Neonatal Death
parents and families whose baby is stillborn or dies soon after birth
In the UK, 16 babies a day are stillborn or die in
the first 4 weeks of life.
SANDS is working to support bereaved parents, and to press for
improvements in care during pregnancy and when a baby has died
If you have been affected by the stillbirth or death of a baby in
the early weeks of life and would like to talk to someone about your
experience please ring our helpline. You may be a parent, family member,
friend or health or social care professional supporting bereaved parents.
Your baby may have died recently or many years ago.
Helpline: 020 7436 5881
The Helpline is open from 10:00 to 15:00, from Monday to Friday.
Outside these hours an answerphone message will let you know when you can
expect the Helpline to reopen. If the helpline is busy, you will be able
to leave a message, and someone can call you back.
