Maternity Services - Our team - Bereavement - Top image
Our specialist midwives offer individually tailored support to meet the needs of bereaved women and their families for as long as it is needed.  Our support covers any pregnancy loss within our trust.
We offer a 7-day a week service giving ongoing medical, practical and emotional support following a pregnancy loss at any stage.   We can see you in hospital and postnatally at home as well as giving telephone support as needed.  We are well supported by our wider team who offer counselling and clinical expertise and advice for future care.
