How do we help babies and families in neonatal care?

More than 90% of parents that we spoke to said they felt isolated in neonatal care during COVID-19. It continues to be a particularly anxious time for families with a baby born premature or sick.

  • Our Bliss Champion volunteers are providing a listening ear via our video call service for parents on the unit and family members who have to stay at home, separated from their baby.
  • Our email support line remains open and the number of enquiries to this service have increased significantly since the start of the pandemic.
  • We’re keeping up to date with the latest evidence and guidance to provide parents with clear and comprehensive information about how changes to guidelines may affect their baby and their stay in neonatal care.

Bliss have been so important to my family. I got in touch as I worried about my wife during COVID-19. The work Bliss do is unbelievable, and the compassion shown has been overwhelming.
