The Lullaby Trust Care of Next Infant Programme (CONI)

We are proud to announce that Teddy’s Wish has donated £5,000 towards a scheme designed to boost the support given to bereaved families before and after the birth of their new baby.

Parents who have suffered a sudden and unexpected death of a baby often feel anxious when they have another baby.

The Care of Next Infant programme provides specialist advice, information and support to health professionals who in turn support bereaved families with their subsequent babies, to help them enjoy the first year of their baby’s life.

Working with the NHS, The Lullaby Trust runs the national health-visitor led service for bereaved parents. CONI is available through many hospitals and community health centres and involves health visitors, midwives, paediatricians and GPs.

Our donation has been match funded by the Big Give 2015. Find out more about the Big Give Challenge.
