Need urgent help?

Leeds has a Bereavement Midwife who is trained to care for and support women and families who suffer the loss of a baby in pregnancy or the first week of life.

The bereavment midwife is responsible for offering emotional support, information and practical guidance to women who experience one of the following:

  • Miscarriage from 14 weeks.
  • A stillbirth or neonatal death (this means in the first week of life).
  • An on-going pregnancy but the baby is expected to die.
  • A termination of pregnancy because of abnormalities.
  • Another pregnancy following the loss of a baby.

A Specialist Bereavement Midwife is someone who understands that the parents of a baby who has died will be faced with many difficult decisions and emotions. They can explain all the different options and choices at a time of great difficulty and sadness. This means that families have a dedicated person to contact whenever they have questions or requests, or simply want to talk. You can find out more and self-refer by calling 07920 029 180 or 07766 862 627.
