In 2013 in the UK, one in every 137 babies was either stillborn or died in the first 4 weeks of life

Here in N. Ireland, over 3 babies a week are stillborn or die in the first 4 weeks of life.

We support all bereaved parents who have lost their babies, before, during or shortly after birth.

In Utero Transfer group

Our Co-ordinator attended a meeting of the In Utero Transfer Task & Finish Group (IUT Group) at the Royal Hospital Belfast on 11th February
The IUT Group broadly looks at the factors that determine when/if a baby will be transferred from one hospital to another with specialist care beds. The meeting was very interesting and it gave us an insight to the difficult decisions Obstetricians & Paediatricians have to make and how those decisions impact on families. We are pleased to be invited to be part of this group to act as a link between it and parents who will be asked for input over the coming months on various topics.
