Sadly, 15 babies are stillborn or die shortly after birth every day in UK, which means every 90 minutes a family experiences this devastating tragedy. Sands exists to support anyone affected by the death of a baby, and our vital bereavement support services offer a lifeline to families when they need it the most. We work with healthcare professionals, such as midwives and doctors to improve the quality of bereavement care received in hospitals and we fund vital research projects to help save babies lives.
