Your donation will help Bliss

Push for extended parental leave

So that sick and premature babies can have their parents by their side for longer – we’re closer than ever to this being a reality.

Provide emotional support

When families need it the most by funding volunteers on units and campaigning for better mental health and bereavement support for all.

Fund research

To reduce pain in premature babies to ensure every baby’s journey through neonatal care is as painless as possible.

A story that stays with you forever

40 years ago having a baby in neonatal care was a very different story than it is today.

Many neonatal units did not have the trained staff or equipment they needed. And medical advances that now routinely save babies’ lives were yet to be discovered.

Bliss was founded 40 years ago by a group of parents determined to change outcomes for babies. We were and are the only national charity for premature and sick babies.

Why we still need your support

Today babies on the neonatal unit have a better chance of survival.

But there is a critical shortage of neonatal nurses, thousands of parents have to return to work when their baby is still in hospital and many parents can’t access adequate psychological or bereavement support.

Help us change the story for the next generation of babies

Support over 100,000 babies born premature or sick every year and help us continue our vital work.
