Charities call on Government to take urgent action to keep babies safe

We understand how starting a family after loss can be a challenging time and this is all the more intense in the current difficult situation with Covid-19 (coronavirus). The crisis has impacted early pregnancy services, increasing anxiety for many, particularly women and couples who have had a previous ectopic pregnancy. We believe that each family deserves the best support possible, through pregnancy and as new parents.

Today, over 40 leading mental health, family and children’s charities and professional bodies are calling on national and local decision makers to give urgent attention to the wellbeing of babies, toddlers and their parents during the COVID-19 crisis.
