A new, free information resource launched by Oxford-based charity to improve support for parents losing a baby before 24 weeks of pregnancy.

A new resource has been launched based on the first-hand experiences of parents whose baby died before, during or shortly after birth at 20 to 24 weeks of pregnancy: www.healthtalk.org/20-24 . 

The resource aims to support parents, loved ones and health professionals. Visitors to the website can watch videos of parents talking about topics such as finding out something was wrong, experiences of labour and giving birth, seeing and spending time with their baby, making memories and the long term emotional impact.

This work was led by Dr Lucy Smith at the University of Leicester and Dr Lisa Hinton at Oxford University’s Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences who travelled around the UK talking to 38 parents in their own homes about experiences of baby loss.
