Earlier this year, Bliss joined The Bereavement Care Network, created by the Royal College of Midwives and Sands – the stillbirth and neonatal death charity. As part of the development of a National Bereavement Care Pathway, the partner organisations will be holding two parent stakeholder meetings early next year to get your feedback on what should be included. We are looking to get feedback from bereaved parents with a wide range of different experiences, to make sure that the pathway addresses the topics that you think are most important.
There will be one meeting in London on January 19 2017, and one in Manchester on February 10 2017. To make sure that we have representation from a range of experiences, we are asking people to register according to the type of loss they experienced. Each event will have space for 40 participants, with eight spaces available for those who have experienced miscarriage (including ectopic and molar pregnancy), termination for fetal anomaly, stillbirth, neonatal death and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) respectively. This will allow us to collect in depth feedback from 80 bereaved parents with a range of experiences over the course of the two events.
