Baby loss

Although pregnancy and childbirth is safer now than ever before, not all pregnancies have the happy ending hoped for. It is always a very sad and difficult time when families are faced with unexpected loss and parents can be left feeling vulnerable, angry and confused.

In the UK around 12,000 families a year will experience the tragic loss of babies either due to stillbirth, miscarriage or neonatal death. Here, at Frimley Health, we care for about 150 families a year who encounter this devastating and life changing experience.

Unfortunately, we can’t take away the pain of loss, but we do all we can to support families at this difficult time. Frimley Health has a dedicated team of bereavement midwives able to help. The team provides practical guidance, information and emotional support to families affected by baby loss.
