Scottish Government to fund National Bereavement Care Pathway

Sands and the partners working together on the National Bereavement Care Pathway (NBCP) for pregnancy and baby loss, are delighted to announce that the project will launch in Scotland from April onwards, thanks to funding from the Scottish Government.

The pathway seeks to improve the quality of, and reduce the inequity in the bereavement care provided to parents and families when a baby dies before or shortly after birth. Five experiences of pregnancy or baby loss are included in the Pathway: Miscarriage, Termination of Pregnancy for Foetal Anomaly (ToPFA), Stillbirth, Neonatal Death and Sudden Unexpected Death of an Infant (SUDI) up to 12 months.
