Petals is delighted to announce that we have joined the Pregnancy & Baby Charities Network. The network represents UK charities whose purpose is to:

  • Reduce the number of babies who die during pregnancy, birth or in the early weeks of life
  • Reduce morbidity in newborn babies and improve care for these babies and their parents
  • Improve care throughout the path to parenthood; before, during and after pregnancy and after losing a baby or pregnancy (where ‘care’ includes physical and mental health and access to optimal information – covering preconception, pregnancy and birth and immediately after birth)

The network is made up of charity Chief Executives and/or Trustees whose organisations work towards the objectives above. Petals will be represented by our Chief Executive, Karen Burgess.

Karen said, “I am delighted that Petals will be joining other charities leading the way towards better care for parents suffering the devastation of baby loss”.
