Welcome to the Lily Mae Foundation

Supporting Parents and Families after
a Stillbirth, Neonatal Death, Miscarriage
or Medical Termination

The Work We Do

Despite its frequency, there is very little public perception of the devastating impact of Stillbirth, Neonatal Death, Miscarriage & Medical Termination on parents, their families and friends. We are here to help and break the taboo associated with the loss of a baby.

The Funds that we receive help us to provide:

  • Memory Boxes to Bereaved Parents and Memory Making Kits to Grandparents
  • Sibling Support Packs
  • Counselling Support for Parents, Siblings and Family Members.
  • 1-2-1 Babyloss Support Service (BLSS)
  • Information to Parents, Families and to Health Care and Medical Professionals.
  • Training and Support for Midwives, Student Midwives and Neonatal Nurses.
  • Research into the Prevention of the Loss of a Baby.

Supporting You

The Foundation now offers a comprehensive and unique range of supporting programmes to bereaved parents, their families and friends and to the medical and social care professions. 

The supporting programmes that we offer are organised and developed as a result of the regular conversations, feedback and reviews that The Foundation carries out with bereaved parents and families and with representatives of the medical and social care professions.
