What We Do

Information and support

We produce a suite of patient-focused leaflets pack to provide those affected by the condition with detailed information about their particular treatment and condition in general.  Our literature is widely used throughout hospitals across the UK to ensure that penitents are supported and informed.

We provide support and information through our call-back support line service, email responses, online forum/message-boards, video calling, and Live Chat. These services have in some instances saved lives.

Education and awareness

We are proud to collaborate with prestigious professional bodies such as The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, The Royal College of Nursing, and The Association of Early Pregnancy Units to provide information to healthcare professionals. We provide opportunities to learn from people’s lived experiences of ectopic pregnancy and represent the patient’s voice. This enables healthcare services to be patient-led and equips healthcare professionals to support their patients with excellent care.

Pregnancy & Baby Charities Network

The EPT is a key member of the Pregnancy & Baby Charities Network (PBCN)  the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Baby Loss, and the Baby Loss Awareness Alliance.

PBCN represents UK charities whose focus includes improving care throughout the path to parenthood before, during and after pregnancy and after losing a baby or pregnancy. The group collaborates to influence the Government and the NHS to improve care for parents.

  • The EPT strives to ensure that those who experience early pregnancy losses through ectopic pregnancy are represented. The Director of the EPT is appointed secretary of the Network. 

All-Party Parliamentary Group on Baby Loss brings together MPs and Peers from across parties to work on this vital issue. The APPG’s overall aims are to develop policy that supports families dealing with the grief and loss of a baby and to raise awareness of what more can be done by the government, Parliament or other agencies to help those affected.

  • The EPT has been a part of the Group from inception in 2016. By participating in discussions, The EPT constantly ensures that ectopic pregnancy and early pregnancy loss remain within the Government’s agenda. AAPG Baby Loss Twitter

Baby Loss Awareness Week takes place annually from 9th to 15th October and is an opportunity for bereaved parents and their loved ones to acknowledge and remember their losses. It is also a chance to raise awareness of the emotional impact of pregnancy and infant loss, and the scale of the tragedy, which affects up to one in five families in the UK. Baby Loss Awareness Week is a collaboration of a number of charities united in their support for families who experience the death of a baby including Sands, Bliss, Child Bereavement UK, The Miscarriage Association, and Tommy’s as well as the EPT.

  • We are proud to be one of the founding partners of the collaboration for Baby Loss Awareness Week, at the forefront of commemorating the all-too-brief lives of babies lost through ectopic pregnancy. We have participated in Baby Loss Awareness Week annually since inception as one of the founding charities (alongside Sands, ARC and The Miscarriage Association) and remain part of the core Working Group.
