When a baby or child has died

Despite all the advances in medical science, babies do die during pregnancy or during birth and soon afterwards.

Children and teenagers can be affected by cancer and other devastating and sometimes very rare illnesses, suffer fatal accidents or become the victim of violence by others or self-harm.

There are a number of organisations which understand and can support families who find themselves trying to cope after such a devastating event. We have listed several under our useful contacts page, but this is not an exhaustive list and you are welcome to call us and we will search for appropriate contact details for you.
