Baby loss

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), Neonatal Death and Stillbirth are bound by the same tragic issues:

  • The loss of a child is something that no parent should have to suffer
  • Greater research is required to continue to reduce the numbers affected
  • It is often sudden, without warning and with no clues in previous medical history or scans
  • It often affects the seemingly strong and healthy
  • There are often no explanations found as to the cause of death
  • The sense of loss, the devastating grief is exaggerated due to the lack of explanation
  • Bereavement counselling and services, so fundamental to help families look forward and try to find hope and happiness again, are predominantly funded by charitable donations.
  • Both require funding for research, development and investment in post-care support services.

 

 

Neonatal death

Neonatal death refers to the death of a baby within the first 28 days of life. In the UK, one in 300 babies dies in the first 4 weeks of life.

SIDS

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, formerly known as Cot Death is the term used to describe the sudden death of a seemingly healthy baby.

Stillbirth

Stillbirths happen ten times more frequently than SIDS: 1 in 2,500 babies die from SIDS; 1 in 200 are stillborn.
