Listening to Parents workshop

25 March 2014

Bliss, in partnership with Sands and a team at the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit, Oxford have conducted the first national survey of women whose baby was stillborn or died soon after birth.

This April a study by a group at the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit in Oxford and supported by Bliss and Sands will be presented at the Royal Society for Medicine.

The study looked at the experiences of women whose baby was stillborn or who had died shortly after birth and is the first of its kind in England. The research will help us to understand the experiences of families coping with such a loss, as well as how services could be improved.

On the day researchers will present their research as well as sessions which look at health care providers views, as well as hearing from Bliss and Sands.
