Pregnancy and Baby Loss

Sadly, some babies are lost during pregnancy, birth, or shortly afterwards. It’s okay to feel upset, sad or confused.

It’s important to talk about it and get help if you need. Everyone is different, and it’s okay to feel your feelings. There are people and places that can help and support anyone who has experienced the loss of a baby, whether through miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death, or termination for medical reasons.

There is support available in Somerset through Somerset – End Of Life Care & Bereavement Support ( including extra information, helplines, forums, online chat, groups that meet, talking to dedicated supporters and counselling. This support is available from local and national organisations.

Speak to your midwife about what support there is.
